Alyssa Update-Two Months

Well, officially, Alyssa will be two months old tomorrow, but since we were at the pediatrician today, I thought I would go ahead and give you all the update. She weighed in today at 9 pounds, 12 ounces, and was 22 3/4 inches long. Both of those put her at the 25th percentile, so the doctor thinks that we may just have a cute, little peanut on our hands. She has been hitting all her milestones. She loves to smile at us and has started to "talk" to us as well. However, I think she smiles and "talks" more to the star that lights up and plays music on her playmat than she does to us. Here is her most recent picture. I took this yesterday.

She has also continued to be a pretty good sleeper. The last two nights she has slept over 7 hours, so we have been able to start feeling a little more normal around here as well. Hopefully that will continue. Now that she has discovered that there is a world outside of her, she is less enthusiastic about taking naps, but will sleep for a couple hours in our arms. Oh well, they're only little once and we will never have another one this little again, so I am just trying to go with the flow. Before long she will be up and walking and walking away from me. Right now, I will just try to hold onto her while she is little.
P.S. Here is one more picture. This was taken at 6 weeks, right when she started smiling.

Thanks for the pictures. She's precious and her smiles are great too. I can see Kyle in her one picture.
Have a Blessed Easter with the family!
