I can't believe that my little baby girl is already 2 months old. Just doesn't seem possible to me...But it is! Where do I start with this girl. She is a little angel. She loves to smile and talk. I love talking to her because she looks at your face and lips as if she is reading them and then she will coo back. When she gets really excited she will even breath in really fast and make the cutest noise. She is very giving of her smiles, smiling ALL the time. Ashlee smiles and talks the most at night when it is just me and her or her Daddy and her. Once she notices her nighttime routine she will get all cute and smile and coo which always makes me stop getting her ready for bed and just sit there and talk and smile with her! She is already quite smart!! She rarely cries, usually only in the car when we stop or when she has a bubble. When she does cry it is pretty loud and Ethan and Katelee both complain that it is hurting their ears. (A little pay back never hurt anyone right? Thanks Ashlee for helping me out!) Ashlee is a great sleeper... Amazing how great she is at sleeping and I still sometimes complain, I should be ashamed... I just blame it on me being older than I was with Katelee! Ethan was a great sleeper, but with him being my first kid I had no idea how lucky and nice it was to have him sleeping all the way through the night at 3-4 days old.... Ashlee usually goes down for bed between 9 and 9:30 and wakes up to eat around 5-5:30. Sometimes she will fuss a little in the night and I just give her the binky and she is quickly back to sleep again. She has been doing well at sleeping since about 4-5 weeks, with little spells of not doing so well that might last 2 or 3 days. Some nights she goes to sleep with the binky and some nights she doesn't want it... I love that... My other two were very dependent on the binky, Katelee so much so that she needed it multiple times a night to get back to sleep...
Ashlee is my little cuddle bug, she goes with the flow and doesn't seem to mind all the attention she gets from her siblings and sometimes the little attention her parents give her. She has started keeping her milk down better. She use to spit up so much that I wondered how she was ever going to grow without milk... She still spits up but not nearly as much, most times! She eats four ounces every four hours during the day. After her 5-5:30am bottle she will go back to sleep until her next bottle at 9:30am. Ashlee is perfectly content laying on the couch or floor just looking around. Sometimes when she does get fussy the solution is just laying her down. I think she gets annoyed with being held too much, it's quite amazing how she will stop crying when we set her down. She still doesn't have much hair, but the hair she does have is dirty blond with a little hint of red in the sun. She has the cutest lips and when she starts to cry she will pout out her little lips and then let our a scream. It's really quite cute.
I am so thankful for our sweet Ashlee Elizabeth. She is a joy to have in our house. We all love her so much and can't imagine our lives without her! Didn't ever seem like there was a void in our house before she came, but I can't remember life before her! How grateful I am that she chose me to be her mother and to come to our crazy little family! We love you and can't wait to continue watching you grow!
