Secora is 2 months old today! Still not a whole lot to add to her "things I can do" list. She is 11#3oz and about 23in long. She smiles now, but not very often and I haven't been able to get a picture of it. I put her on her tummy one evening recently and she rolled herself over (she really hates tummy time). I thought it was a fluke, so I put her back on her tummy and she tried really hard to do it again...she arched her back and craned her head over to one side, but she got about half way there and then screamed at the continued indignity of tummy time, so I went ahead and picked her up. She doesn't come close to matching the fussiness we experienced with her sisters, but I still wonder if she's just a late bloomer in that regard. She hasn't settled into much of a schedule, but she sleeps a lot, with a few awake periods throughout the day where she just looks around and takes it all in for an hour or two. Around midnight she wakes up and does her core aerobics (kicking her feet up in the air repeatedly) and then she zonks out and sleeps anywhere from 2-4 hour stretches until about 10am the next morning when she finally wakes up for the day. She likes baths, but she's happier in the shower with mom (I think because it's the only time she gets to spend a significant amount of time without multiple layers of clothes on). She does not like getting out of the bath or shower and getting dressed again, it's the only time she *really* cries.
We're all just soaking in the sweet baby goodness while we can!!
