Two Months

Lily Jane turned two months on July 2...

I picked the picture above because it best symbolized how she started her second month of life: very fussy, but still cute as a bug. By the end of the month, though, she was all smiles: 

Luckily, we made it through the colicky period, and she is now a happy and content baby. 

Her measurements: 

Height: 24 inches (75-90 percentile)
Weight: 14.2 pounds (above 95%)

She's a chunk! People can't believe when I tell them old she is. 

This month she started lifting her head during tummy time:  

 And started clearly demonstrating that she's a daddy's girl. She smiles every time she sees Rob and  adores him...and the feeling is mutual:

She also likes to "talk" a lot, which the doctor even noticed. She makes a lot of very cute sounds and apparently has a lot to say. The doctor also noticed that her head seems to be a little lopsided toward the right, and he suggested we vary her sleeping positions, switch her car seat position with Tate's, read the New York Times and Mother Jones to her, etc in order to give her a more well-rounded brain before a baby helmet would be necessary. We'll keep you posted on "Operation We Can't Have a Right Wing Baby!"
