As of today, Norah is two months old (I'm going by calendar months now). At this point, she's basically sleeping through the night; some nights are different from other others, but for the most part, she always has a long 6-7 hour stretch of sleep. This is probably the highlight of her development right now because more sleep for her means more sleep for me, and it's great to not be up every 2-3 hours.
She's certainly growing too (her 2 month check up isn't for another week so I don't how much she weighs or how tall she is at this point, but I can see and feel how much bigger she is) and getting stronger and more active. She hates tummy time, but when I put her on her tummy, she can lift her head and look around. And, as you can see in the picture above, when supported, she has good head control. Among her other developmental milestones: she can track objects for 180 degrees and turns her head to see something that makes sound, she is opening her fists more and will grasp objects if they're placed at her fingertips, and best of all: she smiles and makes all kinds of new sounds, so we have all kinds of good "talks"!
The best thing about this past month, is that I've really begun to see her personality emerge, and she is such a sweet, easy-going baby. Yes, she cries like all babies do and she certainly has her crab apple moments and we have our trials and tribulations, but they are few. For the most part, she's such a smiley, happy baby who even smiles sometimes when she's sleeping or nursing!
In the next month, I'll be returning to work and she'll be starting daycare, so we have lots to look forward to and I can't wait to see what the 3rd month reveals about who she is and who she's becoming!
