Two Months!

Baby Q is two months old today! People always tell you how quickly time goes and it's so true. I can't believe how big she is and how much different she is this month than last month. She had her two month well visit yesterday. She is still keeping it long at 23 inches and now weighs 10 pounds 13 ounces. The doctor was very pleased with her growth and her strength. She can push herself up, hold her head up very well, and has good control during tummy time. Sometimes we can even get a smile out of her until she starts screaming to get off her stomach. We also suffered through her first round of shots (3 injections and 1 oral vaccination). I have never seen Quinn so upset, or so red. It was tragic. So sad. I am not looking forward to doing that again. I pretty much let her do whatever she wanted for about 5 hours after that...that included eating and sleeping.

Quinn's latest accomplishments include rolling from tummy to back. The first time she did it was on Thanksgiving when she was five weeks old, but she has become a lot more consistent recently. Also around five or six weeks she started smiling intentionally and even laughs! It's the best! She is still quite vocal - in a good way - at all times of the day, even in her sleep. She is a very happy and content baby. Matt and I consider ourselves so, so lucky to have her, and even more lucky with her wonderful sleep and demeanor. She still sleeps in her crib, in her own room, each night, and pretty consistently sleeps all through the night.

In addition to those tricks, she has also really begun to focus on objects. She still loves lights, but now looks at you when you talk to her and definitely could stare at the lion in the gym for a very long time. She might be in love with him. Quinn can also track objects, like the lion or people, when they move. She swats at toys and reaches for things as well. She can grasp things if you put them in her hand. She might be considered a local celebrity at Wegmans, Target, and The Running Store!

It has been a busy social month. We have had visitors, celebrated Thanksgiving with friends, Grandma and Grandpa came to visit, she met Santa Claus, and Quinn even attended her first Christmas party. She was very well behaved for all. We are so looking forward to the next week of social events for the holidays. Quinn will get to meet more family members, take her first road trip, and of course celebrate her first Christmas!.

Obviously, Quinn doesn't come without challenges. We discovered that Quinn has a clogged tear duct (thanks Aunt Caitlin!). Hopefully it will go away with time, but for now I am providing her with nose massages. She also continues to spit up on a regular basis as well. That's probably her most frustrating quality.

We love Quinn so much and are enjoying every moment with her. I always feel so torn..I wish I could stop time and she could be this small and I could stay home with her all day, everyday, but at the same time I cant wait to see what the next month(s) brings.
