Two Months Old

Can I cry now? Seriously, my baby is two months old. She got weighed today and now weighs 13lbs and is 62 cm long. All her newborn size clothes are offically packed away and she now wears size 3-6 months.
She's still a pretty content little baby but we have started experiencing more crying episodes. She hates when we go out. She tends to cry like it's the end of the world in the car seat and has started having freak outs on the bus. It's pretty upsetting not only because I hate to hear her cry but also because I want to be able to go out without worrying about the people around me getting tired of the yelling. It's been raining a lot lately so we haven't been walking as much as before.
She is starting to really take things in. She makes faces are herself in the mirror, laughs when you stick your tongue out at her, she can sit pretty well without much assistance and she recognizes people and voices. On the one hand, I love that she can just see me and she smiles but if she can't see me she tends to cry which is frustrating. I've been reading the same book to her since she was just a couple weeks old to help with her language development. Now when I start reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See? she starts to smile because she remembers it. We read lots of books but I read that one to her a least once everyday.
She still loves music. We've been listening to Carnival of the Animals by Saint Saens and she loves it. Her favorite seems to be the aquarium and the final march. I've been wanting start playing the piano and cello again so she can listen to live music but I just don't have enough time between caring for her and cleaning the house. Soon, I hope.
She's starting to watch me a lot more so I've suddenly become aware of how everything I do is being observed. She loves to watch me fold laundry. I'm trying to set a good example even at this age. I like her to see me taking care of her, myself and the house. She watches me cook dinner and I like offering her the olfactory sensory experience. Because she seems to be more engaged I'm thinking of taking her to a local baby sign class. But she might be a bit young.
Overall she's healthy, happy and perfect. I love her so much and she's just made my life so wonderful. I'm so lucky to be her mom.

    She loves the bath and makes the cutest faces when she is in the water. They make for excellent pictures!

  3. Gosh, she is so darned cute! I can't believe I haven't met her yet and it's been two months! We'll definitely have to get together soon.
