Two Month Stats

So I don't forget, here are Autumn's two months stats
 She's growing beautifully, as the doctor put it, she's gained exactly four pounds since birth and now weighs 11lb., 5oz. (70th%) and is 24 inches long (90th%).  This makes her long and lean, as the doc put it.  She's getting the cutest baby chub on her arms and legs now, SO kissable!
  She's really turned a corner as far as being easy during the day.  She now goes to bed between 8 and 8:30pm.  I wake her up before I go to bed for a late night phantom feed, then she sleeps until 4 or 5am, eats, and is back down til 7 or so.  During the day, she's extending her wakeful times to about 1.5 to 2 hours at a time and taking three or four 1.5-2.5 hour naps.  She's so happy and observant during her wakeful times, which makes it so much easier to get things done.  And it's so helpful that her siblings love to talk and play with her so much, she's never lacking in entertainment.
 The girl just doesn't cry much, such a happy little camper.  She'll whine (not really cry) for a minute or two when I put her down for her naps, but that's pretty much it.  Her smiles and coos are absolutely intoxicating, with the choice between chores and hanging out and chatting with her, she usually wins;).  She's starting to kick her legs and move her arms in excitement rather than just out of reflex, her whole body smiles!
    I am soaking this sweet time in with my baby girl as I know the time will pass too quickly.  I am videoing her all the time because I know how fast she's changing.  Autumn Mae, you are such a gift!  Thank you Lord for this sweet baby!
