Alex is two months old!

This is a guest post from Alex's proud daddy! Alex is two months old today! She has grown so much in the past month it's getting ridiculous. The last time we weighed her, she had just reached 10 pounds, including her clothes and diapers. That was a few weeks ago, and I'm betting she's even bigger now! I know that when I carry her around, she sure gets my arms tired! And we have finally graduated from using the smallest diaper size to the next biggest. It won't be long before we start using the 3-6 month onesies.

Now that we've been with her a few months, she's starting to get into some predictable patterns. She seems to sleep most of the night, although she usually wakes up once or twice for a brief feeding. Night time before she goes to bed seems to be her fussiest time. That's when she'll cry quite a bit. We both take turns trying to soothe her. Sometimes she just wants to fuss. But we've noticed that she likes to hear me sing to her; usually after a couple of songs, she'll fall asleep. We also have to give her a few different medicines for acid reflux. Reflux makes it hard at times for her to eat.

Best of all, she's starting to interact with us a lot more. She likes to smile, and has started 'talking' to us in her strange baby lingo. I could swear I can make out her saying 'hi' to us at times. She's a happy bebe when she's not refluxing.

More later!
