Brianna is Two Months Old!

Each day keeps getting better and better with our little Brianna! These past two months have been wonderful!

Brianna wasn't too thrilled about posing with Baby Kelly for her two month photo:

This was actually take one... Brianna was trying to get away from Kelly!

We take her to church every Sunday and Wednesday. She always looks so beautiful in her pretty little dresses. She is not wearing any newborn clothes anymore, but is in all 0 to 3 month sized clothing now.
Brianna is still fairly laid back, although she will cry a little more persistently now. She has distinct cries for her different needs that I recognize now.
As far as sleeping goes, we are in a good schedule now. Last week, for 6 nights, she slept between 6 to 7 hours without waking to eat. I was so excited! However, the past 3 nights she has awakened to eat every 4 hours like she was before. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do about this? Will she just start sleeping longer again like she did before? It is very frustrating to feel like we are moving backwards... I was soooo enjoying the longer stretch of night-sleeping!
One of the biggest changes this month is that Brianna smiles, laughs, and coos so much more than before. We just love it! She definitely recognizes Chris and me, and will smile and coo when she sees us. If she is playing on the floor or in her swing while I'm doing things around the house, she will track me with her eyes and watch every move I make. Of course, the smiles are nearly impossible to catch in a photo as every time I have the camera she just gives me these looks like I'm crazy (as demonstrated in all the photos in this post!). Sometimes when she coos, she acts like she's really trying to tell us something important. So cute!

She has been a bit congested for about a week due to *what I believe to be* allergies. The pollen count has been very high. She hasn't had a fever, but a runny nose and excess mucous in her throat. We see Dr. F in two days for her two month check-up, so I'll ask him about it then.

We are excited to see what this next month brings. She changes so much every day... it is truly amazing!

What I wouldn't give for 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep... *Le Sigh*

Emmy did that at the same age. As I remember, she was sleeping through the night and then for a week decided not to. I have no idea why, and nothing was wrong. But she did return to sleeping through the night very quickly after that.

Her expressions are cracking me up! Especially that last one. And I agree, Brianna...Baby Kelly is kind of creepy...

With the eating she may just be going through a growth spurt and needs to eat more often for a little while. It will happen every few months. Might have something to do with her being congested too. Her not being able to breath as well could be waking her up, and while she is up she figures she'll eat. Hard saying but I hope everything will go back on schedule soon! I can't believe it has been 2 months already. She is quite the beauty!!!
