 Ah, those cheeks!  I love those kissable little cheeks.

She is getting so big, so fast!  I probably just forget, but it seems like she's growing even faster than Wyatt did.  I tried to put one of her 0-3 month sleepers on her the other day, and it was almost too short!  I refuse to break out the 3-6 month clothes yet though.  I'm not sure of her exact weight and height, but we'll find out this Friday at her doctor's appointment.

I still have not figured out the food allergy thing.  She'll be fine for days or weeks at a time, and then randomly have issues again, and I can't figure out what it's related to.  I'm still thinking some kind of nut, but I'm not sure.  I feel like there's no real pattern.  I think I need to start keeping a food diary so we can really figure it out.

The funnest thing this month is that Gwen started smiling!  I think her first smile that we recognized as the real deal was on February 6th, and in the last week she's gotten so much more smiley!  I love seeing her little eyes light up when she smiles at me.

Sleep has been pretty good, she'll usually go 6-7 hours for the first stretch at night, and 3-4 hours for the second.  I'm just glad to see some improvement from last month - for a while there I was wondering if we'd ever get past 4 hours, but she did!  There have been a couple times when she went 7 1/2 hours - so close to "sleeping though the night", but they were just flukes.  Hopefully soon though.

We haven't been doing much tummy time, because Gwen was spending the whole time with her head buried in the floor, crying.  She's getting better though - yesterday she was actually happy just looking around for several minutes!

She's a dramatic little thing!  Sometimes she'll give out long wail-cries, just to let us know that she's really upset.  It's so sad!

She's been talking and cooing more this month though, which is such a sweet sound - I love it.

She still hates baths, but she hates them less when she's not also hungry.

Her new favorite thing is the swing.  She didn't like it much the first month, but now it's her favorite place to be, besides in someone's arms.

It's been fun to see the development between Wyatt and Gwen this month - he gives her kisses now!  One day he was just looking at Gwen and I asked if he wanted to give her a kiss.  I thought he was going to give his shy grin and walk away again, but instead he grinned and then leaned his cheek against Gwen's head (which is his way of giving a kiss)!  It was adorable.  Her first kiss (from another kid, that is - all the adults in our family kiss her all the time).

Sometimes he'll randomly walk up and "kiss" Gwen.  The other night I was putting Wyatt to bed, and I picked Gwen up to carry her out with me, and as we were leaving Wyatt pointed to Gwen and said "Kiss?"  So I had to bring her back so he could give her a goodnight kiss!  It was so sweet!

He loves her, and I think it'll be fun to watch as she gets older and can interact with him too.

One of my favorite things is snuggling with Gwen's face up close to my neck.  She'll snuggle her little nose against my neck, and grab onto my hair with both hands, and she won't let go until I force her to.  It melts my heart, and it's one of those things I always want to remember - how it felt to have her snuggle so close and hold on tight to my hair.

Sometimes I just look at Wyatt and Gwen and wonder at the fact that this is my life.  I feel so blessed to have these two as my kids, and I'm trying to cherish all these snuggles from Gwen.  I know now from experience with Wyatt that it really does go by too fast.




My Sweet Miss Gwen,

My, you are a darling little thing!  Your smiles just make my heart leap, Baby Girl - I can't even describe to you.  They make me feel like the most special lady in the world.  

You still love to snuggle, but you are enjoying your swing more too, and it's fun for me to watch you just look around and observe from your little perch.  Your personality is starting to show through this month, and I love seeing it develop.  You talk and "coo" sometimes now when you are happy and when you are hungry, like you are trying so hard to communicate. 

You get upset if you don't see anyone around you, as though you think we left to do something fun without you, and you let us know that you are not happy!  I know you're just being dramatic though, because when we come back you stop pretty quick.  I think it's so sweet and funny!  You like to watch Wyatt when he is close by, and he is always climbing up next to you on the couch to keep you company. You love to be around your family, and as long as you know we are close by and haven't forgotten about you, you are happy.

love all your little expressions - the smiles when you see your daddy or me, the curious/concerned look when you are observing, the pouty lip when you are trying to let us know you need something.  It's so cute.  I'm so grateful that you are my daughter.  We are going to have such fun together through the years, I can already tell.  Just wait and see, Precious Girl.  I love you so much.

Your Mama

She is so sweet!! It sounds like you have it good with the night sleep thing - my little one is 3 months and only just started going 6 hours on occasion, but more often just 3-4 hour stretches. I'm sure you appreciate that sleep with two kiddos to care for :)

Melanie said...

She is soooo sweet!!! Love the pictures and seeing her little outfits! fever!! LOL! I was going to email you about the food allergy thing to see if you'd figured it out yet or not..maybe keeping a food diary will be the key! So glad she's sleeping longer stretches too..that helps momma out alot! ;-)

Great photos! My word they learn that pouty lip so early! LOL It is really fun when they are old enough that you know they are actually smiling at you, and then when they are old enough to recognize faces for real it's fun too. :) Cute!
