|i'm 2 months old!|
things have changed so much since the last month! i'm happy to report that olivia is sleeping better, smiling lots, and generally seems much happier and more relaxed. of course we still have our rough times and fussy evenings sometimes, but overall, things are going pretty good! olivia's second month saw lots of days home with momma, some serious baby acne (pretty much all cleared up now!), dad's birthday and momma's first mother's day, and a great visit from aunt shell, uncle tim, and my grandparents (olivia's great grands!) last week!

|uncle tim & aunt shell just couldn't get enough of you!|
|grandma didn't want to leave you!|
|happy mother's day!|
|smiling at daddy :)|
dad and i just love that you are smiling more, "talking" quite a bit, and following us with your eyes. you are so fun! you've also discovered your tongue, are making little spit bubbles, and are trying really hard to suck your thumb. sometimes you get it, sometimes you chew on your fingers, and sometimes you just give up and suck on your entire fist.

sadly you got your first shots on your two month birthday, which certainly bothered momma more than you. you screamed and cried but only for a minute, whereas mom stayed upset for a while. you're so tough! you were fussier than usual that day but you also slept more. besides the shots, everything went great at the doctor. you now weigh 12 pounds and 13 ounces (!!!) and are 23 inches long! you are growing so fast!
olivia, mom and dad love you so much! you are such a sweet baby and we feel so blessed to have you as our own! even though our days tend to feel exhausting, part of me wants to slow time down so i can enjoy you even more. time is just going by so fast! but it is also so exciting to see you changing each day. you are so fun!
