Dear Little Sugar,
(Mommy’s computer isn’t happy and she hasn’t been able to upload photos ’til now. Sorry your letter is late!)
2 months already! It has flown by, yet seems a lifetime away (and for you it is). You have really started to let your smiles out into the world and it is a brighter place because of them. You make so many sounds and even almost squeal once in a while! Nanna even said that you chuckled. She always gets the first ones 😉
I think your vision is improving because you smiled at me in the kitchen all the way from your swing. It’s not that far, but at least 11 or so feet. Speaking of your eyes, they are just so pretty! You have long eyelashes and your irises are deep blue with a little brown stripe on the side of the left one. Unique! Will you have blue eyes like Mommy or beautiful big brown ones like your sister? Time will tell…
On the day of your 2 month birthday (Sunday September 22nd), Sugarpie, your big sister, decided to pay attention to you almost for the first time. Daddy and I were mezmerized! She wanted to be in on the photo shoot too.
She came over to your blanket where you were squirming and squiggling (as you do very well) and put a postal stamp on your arm, then she put it on hers, then yours, and so on. Daddy and I joked that maybe she wanted to mail you away, but she was really just sharing. It was beautiful!
You weighed 9 pounds and 12 ounces at your checkup and were a whole 22 inches long! Since then, you have definitely had a growth spurt. You had to get shots too, it broke Mommy’s heart and boy it made you mad! But it will protect you from some really bad germs.
Speaking of mad, you have found your voice. And it is loud. You can really belt out a good scream! You don’t just cry willy-nilly though, you do that when you’re hungry mostly, or when you’re in your car seat. Hey, it gets lonely in there!
And you have even had tears, real tears already, which were shed in your car seat.
Your fave things to do now are watching your sister, nursing, hanging out in your rain forest chair, nursing, talking and cooing with Mommy (or anyone else who will look you in the eye and be silly), and nursing. Did I mention that already?
You are SO smiley. All it takes is a little eye contact and you are a happy girl. And as soon as you are on your changing table, you start smiling. Hey, we all like a little air where the sun doesn’t shine, right?
Who will you be, Lila Jane? I can’t wait to see. You have already won us over 🙂
Love you forever,
