2 Months!

So Audia was 2 months on Saturday. I cannot believe how fast time flies, and yet I feel like I've been a mom all my life already. It's funny; my brother-in-law was talking a couple of weeks ago about how he thinks his calling in life may be politically related. So I was thinking about what my calling is, and I feel like it's to be a mom. Not because I think I am the best mom in the world or anything; I hope I'm doing a good job but truth be told I probably won't know what kind of job I'm doing until Audia's my age. But I feel like this is what I'm meant to do. I have never felt so fulfilled. Sure, there are times I'm not sure what I'm doing, but for the most part I feel confident. I always loved babysitting more than any "real" job I had, and I am frequently a care-taker in my friendships. Even Dr. Gavin told me in high school that he thought I should be a child psychologist. And he was one heck of a profiler. Anyhoo, that's a random tangent.
Audia has her 2 month appointment this afternoon. I am guessing she's hit the 13 lb mark already but we'll see. I got some super cute video of her talking to Chris on Saturday morning:

In other news, she slept for 7 hrs again on Saturday night! (and yes, she was wearing her magical PJ's) And then she slept for 5 hrs last night. I think it's pretty funny because I've been looking online for baby sleep advice and EVERYTHING I find has to do with getting a baby to sleep through the night. But that's not what I need advice on! I need naptime advice. And it's not easy to find, let me tell you. I should count my blessings, though. Obviously a lot of parents have a hard time getting their babies to sleep through the night!

Also, I think we may have figured out the secret to getting her to take a bottle. Chris woke her from a nap with a bottle on Saturday night and she drank the whole thing. So we'll test this theory that she needs to be woken up with it and see if that's the key.

Well, I think that's all that's new and exciting in our world; I'll post again after her appt with her stats :-)



Wow, she looks so much bigger than two months in the video! I guess being in the 97th percentile and having amazing head control will do that! Such a cutie pie! I am so glad she is sleeping at night for you! The naps will come eventually. I'm learning everything comes and goes in phases with this whole parenting thing, so she'll be napping great in no time! Love you sweetie!
