Two Months Old

Believe it or not Charlotte turned two months old on Sunday.  (I am a little late posting because of a super annoying virus on my laptop that won't let me get on the internet.) In just the last few weeks she has been doing so many new things. One day she was quiet and the next she was gooing and gaaing at us. We have some interesting conversations this way. The other great development was of course the smiling. It is definitely getting more common. The other day she was looking so cute and silly making faces that I started laughing pretty hard. Apparently she thought my laugh was pretty funny and started smiling so big. We can't wait to hear her own laugh.

We had her two month doctor's visit on Monday and she was declared perfect! She now weighs 11 pounds 5 ounces and is 23 inches long, in the 75 percentile for both. The worst part of the visit and maybe her life so far (for both Charlotte and Mom) was her shots of course. Her face turned beet red and she screamed bloody murder. Ugh it was awful. At least we have two months before having to do that again!

Things Charlotte enjoyed in her Second Month:
Of course meeting Aunt Tessie, Aunt Katie, Uncle Jon, and Morgan and Zachary and having a fabulous Thanksgiving.
Picking out and decorating her first Christmas tree.
Saying goodbye to her limited wardrobe of newborn clothes and hello to her vast selection of 0-3 month outfits.
Starting to talk- favorite word is gaaaa
Laying on her playmat and looking at herself in the mirror attached to it.
Swinging in her swing and looking at herself in the mirror above her (Are we seeing a theme here?)
Staring at the ceiling fan is still her favorite pastime (besides eating). The obsession with Mr. Fan, as it's called these days, is sometimes the only reason I am able to get dressed some days.

 Things Charlotte is looking forward to in month 3:

And because this post is late here is her 9 week picture.
