Margot: Two Months

Oh, how the time is already flying.  My girl is two months old today.  What a wonderful month is has been!
We have had a few MAJOR highlights this month.  First and foremost, she started smiling.  There is absolutely nothing better in this world than seeing your child's lips turn up into a smile when they see you.  This is J's favorite part of early babyhood.  Up until now, he hasn't had a ton of interaction with the wee one.  As feeding is mainly my gig (although we have introduced a bottle here and there), he doesn't get a chance to feel the love as often as I do.  But now that she can look up at her daddy and smile, I have a feeling Margot has begun the inevitable wrapping of the father around the little finger...
The other highlight this month?  She has begun to think about sleeping through the night.  It has happened twice now, so I am hoping this means we are on our way to the real deal!  On the nights when she does awaken, she usually needs me for about 15 minutes somewhere near the 4am hour.  I can live with it.  Now I need to get used to her sleeping longer stretches, because the two times she slept all the way until morning, I slept fitfully, anticipating her waking up at any moment.  

Gabe has turned a bit of a corner with his baby sister.  He exhibits serious concern when she cries.  He laughs at her coos.  And he even let me put her on his lap for a hot second.  I call all of this progress.  I think he may just love her yet.    

And now, photo bomb.
