Month Two – Smiling, rolling over and sleeping through the night (fingers crossed)

It’s true what they say – it just gets better and better. Lilla is in full fledged smile mode now. My favorite time of day is first thing in the morning after a feeding. She is all smiles and bright eyed and just a happy happy baby. We recently bought an activity mat to put her on for tummy time and to give her some stimulation while she lays on her back. Every time I put her on it, she rolls over to her stomach and starts tummy time on her own. I can’t believe how high and for how long she can hold her head up! Definitely a proud mom that she’s doing things so early, but at the same time I don’t want her to grow up so fast.

In other news, she’s sleeping through the night [watch, now that I’ve posted that, she’ll start waking up] and it’s been amazing for both mine and Jon’s sanity seeing that we’re able to sleep through the night ourselves. 🙂 She’s not the best napper in the afternoons but I’ll take sleeping through the night over napping any day.

We’ve also been a lot more mobile these last few weeks. Especially since it’s officially summer in San Francisco now (at least for 1 or 2 more weeks). We’ve been going for daily walks together and I joined a playgroup that we’ve been attending with other first time moms with babies Lilla’s age. It’s been awesome getting to relate to other women going through the same stuff as me – especially at the same time.

We’re headed back home to Chicago this coming weekend to see the fam and to introduce everyone to Lilla. I’m really looking forward to it but am a little hesitant about the plane ride.  Our flight leaves right during her fussiest time of day. Just hoping she won’t have melt downs the entire flight. If so, I’ll just hand her off to Jon. Haha, kidding.
