2 months

This post is just a little late.  As everyone else, we are crazy busy around here and blogging has been put on the back burner! Hopefully, I will get everything posted one day soon!
Look who is growing like a weed!!
Ava Kate is 2 months old as of December 6th.

-At her 2 month check-up she weighed 13.2. (95%) she and AR both gained exactly 5lbs from birth.  I will have to look up her length but it was 75%. 
-She just moved up to the size 1-2 diapers.  She wears 3 month clothes (some 0-3 and some 3-6). 

-She still has dark brown hair but is losing a lot of it.  It is still thick in the back.  Her eyes are like mine...kind of a hazel, blue/green color...not sure if they will stay this way. She has a small skin tag on the back of her ear lobe on the right side.   She favors her Daddy's baby pictures more to me than AR's did.  I will have to scan one in and compare soon.
-She has the cutest, skinniest feet.
-She has chubby little cheeks that are just the cutest!

-She eats 6 oz. every 3-4 hours during the day and only wakes up once at night and that time varies.  Sometimes its 2 or3 but the past several nights, I have fed her at 9:30-10ish and she slept until 5.  
-She usually has a fussy period around 8 or so at night.  This is getting better though!  The only thing that really soothes her then is standing up and patting her bottom!
-She was spitting up quite a bit, but she is doing better with that.  She does gag really easy.  If she doesn'tthe pacy, she will gag sometimes!!

-She is cooing and smiling all the time now.  She is really a happy baby most of the time.  I love her little expressions she makes!
-She likes her swing and bouncy seats but these definitely do not soothe her or calm her down if she is fussy.  They probably just make it even worse!  She does like looking at the mobile and little toys on the swing now.
-She is still in our room now and she sleeps on the boppy pillow because of the elevation.  I had AR sleeping in her bed by now but for some reason, I keep putting it off!  Hopefully, I will do that soon.
-She went on her first trip to Fairhope on Thanksgiving and did pretty well traveling.  Since we went from Berry, it took us an extra hour and that extra hour got us with both girls.  But other than that she did great!

-She is grabbing hold of things now.  When she lays on the changing table, she will grab my shirt.  
-She has a big sister that loves her so much!  She is constantly wanting to hold her and "rock rock" her.  Ava Kate loves watching her big sis!
-She had her first cold this month but was such a trooper! 
-She is such a cuddler and loves to be held.
-To save on time, I often put AR in the shower and Riley will bring Ava Kate to me and she gets in the shower.  She really likes it!
