Fast forward- Month TWO

That is what this past month has felt like...someone pushed the fast forward button!

During the first month, I remember wondering if we would ever make it through with our sanity still intact, lol. Now, I feel as if I can't hold on to the day long enough. Austin and I were talking about how, now, it seems as if Peyton changes DAILY! Ahh. She is TWO MONTHS now and she is not a newborn anymore. She looks like a little person now. It's adorable but kind of sad at the same time! My baby is growing! Here's her two month stats:

*She's wearing size 1 diapers (they're still a smidge roomy)

*She has officially found her little voice. She "talks" and smiles all the time now

*Is a drooling queen...don't know where that came from, but she's good at it! ;)

*Clothing is kind of an issue. She's (for the most part) too long for newborn things now, but most 3mth things are still too big/wide

*Is really good at following people and looks towards noises.

*She hates being "alone". If left unattended, she will yell to let you know she MUST be your center of .ALL.TIMES. (Oh boy...)

*She's pretty much over her colic/fussiness! Thank you Jesus! Just a little in the evening, and the occasional "fussy day" here and there.

*She likes to move (Ex. be in her swing, bouncy seat, in your arms bouncing/swaying...)

*Likes to sit up. She does not like to be held laying down, unless she's sleepy. She wants to be a big girl! I think she just likes being able to see everything. If she's laying flat, she'll try to lift her head up, as if to tell us she wants to sit up! It's the craziest thing. I swear she's determined to grow up NOW. (My mom says it's the typical "first born"

*She giggles!! I LOVE it...I haven't been able to get her to do it alot. But it is the cutest sound ever!

I love, love, love, seeing Peyton change and learn new things. It's also much better having her more content, now that the colic/fussiness has subsided. I just cannot believe how many things change in one month!! I can't wait to see what this next month brings!!

Girl Talk

Lately, Peyton has been managing to get a random, single squeak out here and there. However, yesterday I was changing her and was talking to her, as I always do, and she started to "talk" back! It was the sweetest thing I have ever heard!! ((Melt my heart!!)) She did it for about 5 minutes. I swear she would say words if her little mouth would let her! lol. You can tell as you talk to her that she focuses on your mouth and tries so hard to imitate you! I can't wait until she can fully coo all the time :)

She's also started a new thing. Instead of full-out crying right off the bat when she's hungry, she'll let out an angry, impatient yell. It's pretty funny. It's like she's saying "HEY! I'm hungry, hurry up already!!"...........Mommyhood is so much fun :)

Peyton has been doing MUCH MUCH better with her fussiness lately. Usually, if she has a good day, I can pretty much expect the next day to be a bad one, but recently, we've had all (compared to past days)good ones. Don't get me wrong, she still fusses, but not nearly as much and I've even been able to take her out (in the car and to stores!) and she either sleeps the entire time or is content! Praise Jesus! :) She's smiling more on purpose and she'll have random outbursts of coo's or happy yells. I'm hoping that we're close to her cooing all the time! Despite our rough start, I have loved every minute of being her mommmy. She is just the cutest baby EVER! ;) She is so strong, I feel like she's going to crawl early...she moves her legs like there's no tomorrow. I gave her a bath last night and she DID NOT CRY, she actually liked it. That was amazing, lol. Although this may seem like silly things to be excited about, they are BIG things to me! :) I feel like we're getting to where Austin and I can truely enjoy Miss Peyton and her little personality! :) Here are some recent pics of my little beauty...
