Monica Jane: 2 Months

Dear Monica,

You are the cutest, happiest little baby ever. It already feels like you have been with us forever, yet at the same time everything with you is so fresh and new. Two months with you has flown by!

You are growing like a weed! The 0-3 months clothes we have for you are already getting pretty snug, so I get to be more creative with getting good use out of your little outfits. You're hitting all of your marks... If we had gold stars to hand out, you'd get a billion. We're so proud of you! It helps that you're now sleeping 6+ uninterrupted hours at night (for three nights in a row! Yay!!

I love seeing your face light up when people lean in to talk to you. You smile the most for me (I selfishly hope you do forever) and you're more than eager to chat up a storm to anyone who will listen. You study your dad's face like you want to remember every detail of him until the next time you look at him. Celine provides good entertainment for you, and you do a pretty good job tolerating you as she points out the parts of your face. She's working on being gentle though... that's why she softly pets your head and tummy all of the time.

Your full head of hair is starting to thin a bit, but don't worry: if you start to look like a goon we'll trim it up nice for you so it can grow in even again. Right now you're sleeping on the floor... tummy time doesn't make you too mad, but after you hold up your head for a few seconds you're kinda over it and you just sleep. I like to lay next to you when I can so we can have a little quiet time. We'd better soak it up now... Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it might be a little overwhelming for you.

I love you so much, my Monica mouse. You're the best little mini-me I could ask for. You mean more to me than words could possibly express. Enjoy your fresh-out-of-the-bath nap... big sister will be waking up soon to play with you.


Just for fun, here's Celine at 2 months :)
