When you're smiling, when you're smiling

The whole world smiles with you!

Sweetcheeks is now 2 months old (well technically she's 9 weeks now) and man oh man has she figured out this smiling thing. Her big gummy grin is adorable! She started really smiling on Sunday and now each time you pick her up, your heart just melts at her big ol' grin. I'll be honest, as much as I deny it, she smiles the most for her daddy and for Bubba. It's just adorable! Here she is smiling as Daddy talks to her:
 and in the bathtub for me...
 a little crooked smile in reaction to the camera flash
At 2 months old she is now:
  • nursing every 3-4 hours during the day
  • sleeps from about10pm-6am without waking, then nurses and goes right back to sleep until her brothers wake her up
  • smiling :D
  • when laying on her stomach, she lifts her head and sometimes, can do a mini-push up
  • she is starting to bat at toys on her floor gym
  •  she is awake for longer periods throughout the day, usually wide awake from 9:30-noon then on and off naps until around 6pm when she'll stay awake for another hour or two
  • she is now wearing size 2 diapers, size 3 month clothing and when weighed at 7 weeks, she weighed 10lbs4oz 
  • she's really started with the baby talk; cooing and ahhhing alot.
  • when she cries, she has real tears now :(
On Monday, she'll have her 2 year check up and immunizations with the new doctor that we found. Hopefully we like him because it is very hard to find a family practitioner here who sees patients under the age of 2 {we prefer family practice over pediatricians}. I'm really curious to see what she'll weigh then!


  1. Shannon she is just precious! I can't believe how much she looks just the like the boys! I know you are enjoying your little princess!

  2. We're the same way - prefer family practitioner to pediatrician. She's adorable! :) Kristy
