2 months!

Little miss Vivien is 2 months old now.  Not too much has changed- she is still very much in the newborn stage.  There's a lot of eating and sleeping going on here.  She's up to 10 lbs and 5 oz, a very healthy 2 lb gain in the past month!  She usually eats every 3 hours or so, but many evenings she wants to eat constantly.  Luckily that stops once we go to bed.  She has started sleeping in the bassinet with no issues now- she goes right in once she's asleep or half-asleep.  She usually wakes up once in the middle of the night 1-3am depending on when we've gone to bed and then again in the early morning.  She does't like to sleep in the bassinet much during the day, but she will usually sleep there from her morning feeding til 8:30-9ish.  That gives me time to get Ryder up, changed and fed before I bring her down.

She has longer periods of wakefulness now, I think around 2 hours is her record.  When she's awake, she's looking around a lot more.  Her eyes are drawn to any light source in the room.  She has started smiling a lot, it starts in her eyes and then ends up with a big toothless grin.  She can't quite hold her head steady, but she does a good job for a few seconds and she lifts it up a lot.  When she's on our chests, she pushes back and lifts her head to get a good look at us.  She is also very good with Ryder- she tolerates his hardcore kisses pretty well.  I never leave them alone together, even her swing is in a gated part of the house, but if I did, he would be on top of her with a full body hug in a heartbeat.

She is growing out of her newborn clothes, she really only has a couple of newborn items left that fit.  So sad!  She is now able to wear the froggy pajamas (seen below) which were my absolute favorite outfit when Ryder was a newborn. I'm so glad to see them again!

Those eyes are still blue.

So serious!

It was only a matter of time til she fell over.
