She finds her hands!

Wow, Violet is growing by leaps and bounds.  Today was her two month appointment and she weighed 10 pounds 6 ounces!  Craziness.  She got a ton of vaccines today as well.

She's been quite a fussy baby the last few weeks.  She cries if she doesn't have your constant attention and you have to be moving.  You can't just hold her.  It's been exhausting and quite frankly, I wasn't too motivated to update the blog because she's been so fussy.  Word on the street is that it's supposed to improve by around 12 weeks, so only four more weeks to go!  I tell myself that she's fussy because she's bored because she's so smart, but it's just something I say to make myself feel better.

The big thing is last week we started to get big smiles.  Like light up her whole face smiles.  They are few and far between, usually in the morning when you talk to her.  She gave one to the nurse who weighed her today so at least someone else has seen it and I'm not making it up.  It's nice to get a smile once in a while with all the crying around here.  Here is a horrible quality picture of her smile.  Hopefully I can get a good picture sometime soon.

In terms of other development, she is getting much better at holding her head up.  Eric's been working with her on the physical/motor stuff and her doctor said she's as strong as a three month old.  Her hands found her mouth about three days ago and now she constantly has her fingers in her mouth.  She also discovered she has a tongue, and she likes sticking it out and moving it around.  Her vision is also much improved and she very much enjoys watching her mobiles now.

We've had fabulous weather the last few days and she enjoyed a trip to the park as well.

And one last cute video.  Her new favorite place to nap (and mommy's favorite way to get free time) is her swing.

No more doctor appointments for two months.  Hopefully the next update will be full of smiles.
