She also plays facial mimicking (she "sings" with me!), is starting to self-soothe with her thumb/fist, straightens legs, grabs our fingers and sucks on them, plays with her tongue, startles at loud sounds, and STARES, so alertly! She watches TV, books, the cats, the paintings on the wall, us. ;) We are also napping in our crib during the day for a 3 hour stretch, and sleeping at night (with us) swaddled for a 4-6 hour stretch. :D And her hair's growing back!

We still love tummy time, and sleep well on our tummy and sides, but she seems to like being on her back less and less. She startles on the changing table now - not sure why. Kinda panicks and frantically grabs for me :(. She can scootch off the Boppy on her tummy too, sometimes forward, sometimes back. She wants to crawl SO bad. I think she's starting to roll over - she kinda makes it onto a side. And she loves her Gumdrop paci, but as I said, her nursing tongue makes it hard for her to KEEP paci in her mouth unless we can prop in there somehow.

She's growing so fast! She will be 8 weeks Friday, and 2 months Wednesday. Wow!! Time sure does fly.

She has a bit of a cold, green boogers and a bit of coughing, but it doesn't really seem to be slowing her down so I'm just nursing her and trying to keep her warm. Fun times ;).
