2 months/9 weeks...

We hit the 9 week mark on Friday and 2 months on Saturday!!! The time is flying (as is my maternity leave).

People that don't see Sophie often comment about how big she is getting/how much she is changing but since we see her every day, we just don't see it. I do admit to her cheeks being fatter and she's got a fat roll or 2 on her legs now. She was born with my little chicken legs but that is quickly changing:)

She's gotten much more alert also, and can be very nosey:) She loves to be held facing out and just check out what is going on. She's finally noticed the rotating flowers hanging above her swing, as well as the little animals on her mobile. She doesn't have a favorite toy, just still really enjoys being held and looking at us. She tracks things/people really well too...Lisa gave her a little book of black/white graphics that totally grabs her attention and she'll track it left, right, up, down. She's also started enjoying the music on her mobile/swing.

We're in a pretty good routine as well. Her nightime sleeping is basically 10 pm to 10 am. She sleeps at least 5 hours, if not 7 or more. Last night she slept from 10:30-7!! She usually wakes at 3 am to eat, then at 5 and 7 or 6 and 8. For the most part, she's pretty darn predictable. Once awake for the day, she'll be up for about 2 hours, then nap, then time to eat again. Then throughout the day it's eat, play, sleep, lather rinse repeat.

I really try to keep her entertained, but sometimes I think she is just bored. I know there is only so much her brain can process at this point though, and I'm careful not to over-stimulate her. Dan's mom bought us some books in Spanish, so Dan's going to start reading those to her, one of which is Green Eggs and Ham...Huevos Verdes con Jamon:)

I read and sing to her, and try to engage her in some of her little toys. She's slowly getting better at tummy time also. She started out hating it, but at least now she tolerates.

She is such a sweetie! I love her pics. Sounds like she is doing so well! It is fun when they become more and more alert. They really take everything in, don't they? Sadie loves to watch people too.
