Guess who’s 2 months old already!
I will soon sound like a broken record when it comes to remarking on how quickly time flies – but it truly does!!! Having experienced how quickly my kitten and puppies grew, I was prepared to expect the same with my baby girl, so am obsessively documenting all the little milestones. My only wish is to somehow figure out how to make myself look more presentable every day so that I can take more pictures with her! (these days, I am rocking the messy ponytail look… not by choice but convenience… but I am proud to say that I’m managing to slap on some makeup every now and again! yay, me!)
It’s incredible how Margot’s personality is so strong and apparent already… Her cheeky little smiles, her bright eyes that stare right into you, her indignant cries, and – the best yet – her soft coos… those coos are so deliberate – we can see her mind at work trying to “talk” to us. Seriously, when she “talks,” the cuteness factor is through the roof!
Like her mommy, she loves hats!
Even in the womb, she had strong legs (I could actually see them slide across my belly) and since she was born I could tell her neck was strong – and sure enough, these qualities are doing wonders during tummy time as she pushes up! I think she will be a mover quite soon – the dogs better watch out!!
Also in this past month, she has started to engage with toys – batting at the ones that swing, cooing at colorful ones, and snuggling with soft ones… and just a couple days ago, she let out her first giggly squeal!
Forever Dog has been so sweet (did we ever doubt that?!), but one of the best things ever is seeing Margot start to realize that herself – not too long ago, she looked up and saw him snuggling on the sofa next to her and she gave him the biggest gummy smile! They are seriously going to be best friends.
I have to say it has been hard work, being pulled in every direction, even with a baby who sleeps through the night (did I mention this fact? – she started with 4 hours through the night when we brought her home from the hospital and then it gradually went to a 6-hour stretch and now it’s an 8-hour stretch. seriously, it’s a godsend!). It’s amazing how such a tiny little person works you to the bone! – but, we also love it (granted, there have been some “Code Poo” situations entailing emergency changing and a onesie casualty, and those are a little stressful, but hey, even those situations are also, in a funny way, cute).
I can’t wait to share what she comes up with in her third month…!
