First Smiles: The second month!

The first on camera SMILE
I can't believe our baby is already (a little over) 2 months old! I feel like it was just yesterday that I saw her for the first time but also feel like I have known her for forever. She weighed 9 lbs 1 oz at 8 weeks old, so she is still our little peanut!
We are so blessed with a very happy baby who SLEEPS for anywhere from 6-9 hours at night! Which I realize for most moms is unheard of! I feel very lucky and can't imagine if we were still up 2-3 times a night.... because last night was like that for the first time in about 3 weeks and I am exhausted today! We even managed to wake daddy up which is an almost impossible thing to do. So... here's to hoping that tonight she goes back to her "normal" sleep pattern!!! 
She has started smiling (first real big one May 4th!), not loves to play on her play mat which just started this week, before then she wasn't interested in her toys at all... now she will sit for 15-20 minutes just batting them around and kicking her little feet! She also is starting to like her swing a lot and will even let it rock her to sleep instead of mommy or daddy, which is a nice break when I need to do other duties, such as laundry and cleaning!
This month has been very eventful from visits from Oma, Opa, Uncle Mike, Mimi and Papa Conley, to first trips out to Victorville! (The 1 1/2 hour trip away from home.)
Also, after thinking she had reflux we experimented with bottle feeding (mainly pumped "mommy milk") and she is just such a happier baby. She was crying after every feeding and we just knew something wasn't right and turns out she just wasn't getting quite full enough! 

Here are some pictures from this past month up until Mother's day weekend when she turned 9 weeks old.
 Sleeping with daddy after he did his "Spur Ride" and earned his spurs for the Calvary! This was a 2 day long hard process and he really did earn them!
 Tummy Time! 
Rockin her cloth diapers! 
 She LOVES the LoveyDuds wrap! (

Ok, so not every day is all happiness and smiles! 
Its the truth, HE was showing off! ;-)
After Bath time!! 
Coolest baby on the block! 
Her new found pleasure.
