Well world, I did it! I slept in my own big girl bed last night! :) Mommy was all gung-ho about putting me in my crib by myself yesterday morning, but then when it came time... she had second thoughts. I think she soon realized though that this day would come, and that I couldn't very well still be sleeping in their room at the age of 25, so away I went. She stayed in there with me until I fell asleep... which I did watching my new mobile. She left the monitor on full blast though all night, so I know she didn't get much sleep. I think I even heard Daddy come in to make sure my windows were locked so I didn't get kidnapped. I'm growing up! :)

So every other time my daddy tried to read a story to me I would scream. He used to read me this story called "My Daddy;" I would scream everytime Daddy read the part about Daddy liking to hammer... what can I say... I don't like manual labor. :) This "Yummy Yucky" book though... it's hot stuff. Daddy read it to me before bed tonight, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. First "Yummy Yucky," next... I'm taking on "War and Peace". :)
Now that I'm a big bad 2 month old, and having a blast sleeping through the night (for the most part), Mommy made me lay in my crib today. It's kind of like my pack-n-play because it has funny things that sing and circle over my head, so I kind of dig that. It's a little scary though because my new bed is gigantic compared to my little bassinet that is in Mommy and Daddy's room. I fell asleep in my new bed this afternoon for a little nap, so I think Mommy is going to make me try to sleep in it tonight. Wish me luck!!! :)

So... today I had my 2 month visit! I'm a whopping 12 lbs 9 oz and 23.25 inches long. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!? I'm growing like crazy. I'm in the 90th percentile for my weight... what can I say... I love to eat... and in the 75th percentile for my height. My doc said I was super healthy though so Mommy and Daddy aren't worried about my festively plump physique. Now Mommy told me this visit would be a little different than my previous visits... I would get shots this time, and boy were they poopie! I cried when the nurse poked me, but recuperated fairly quickly. Check out my super hot band-aids! :) Mommy made sure to give me some baby Tylenol in case I get a fever... she's so nice to me. She even bought be the grape flavored. It was SUPER yummy... none of that cherry flavored business for Mommy's little baby girl! :)

Today I'm 2 months old! So exciting! Mommy says she never thought we would make it this far... but we did. I'm such a big girl. I can't wait to go to the doctor's office on Thursday to learn how much I've grown. With my super human eating powers... I bet I've gained a solid 2-3 lbs. GO ME!
Mommy and Daddy were invited to Angie and Tommy's annual Christmas sweater party, and I got to go! It was awesome! Everyone was so festive... even I had an outfit on... I mean I didn't want to stand out. Here are some pictures of my adventures.
Here's me with Daddy in our outfits... chillaxin'.
Me with my new friend Tommy. He's so funny! :)
This is my friend Angie... she's trying to console me... I don't fall for that too often though.
So Mommy went out with Auntie Lu last Friday for some mexican, and I got to stay home and play with Daddy. It was so fun! He fed me, and let me watch my puppies... and he let me get naked. It was so liberating! I just got to hang around in my papi, vibratin'... listenin' to some tunes... and being naked. Daddy should watch me more often.
This brings new meaning to "baby got back". My mommy just couldn't resist snapping this shot of me during tummy time. Not only does she belittle my intelligence and make me partake in such nonsense, but she takes incriminating photographs as well. Gosh mom!
So Mommy and Daddy wanted to have a nice Christmas picture of me to send to all of our close friends and family with our Christmas cards. They bought me a pretty dress, dressed me up, put a little bow in my hair... and then I let loose. I was supposed to pose in front of the Christmas tree, but I just wasn't feelin' it. Everytime Daddy lifted me in front of the tree, I screamed. He would put me back down, and I was as happy as a clam. Finally Mommy gave up and settled on this! :)
I have perfected my smile! Everytime mommy pulls out that funny black thing that she likes to flash in my face... I smile... and then she tells me I'm such a good girl! (Which makes me smile even more.) I've also been working on following more things with my eyeballs. I like to stare at my puppy mobile, lights, and the pictures on the wall, and even the big blank wall... SO COOL! Mommy keeps working with me on holding my head up with tummy time, but I think tummy time is overrated. I'll lift my head every once in a while to get her to flip me back over, and then I like to spit up on my blanket, so she'll pick me up and put me with my puppies.
