Well, it's been over a month since I posted. Amazing how TIRED I am all the time. I sleep when I can, but it seems like the sleep issues I've had for years are only exacerbated now. Not fun. But all in all, things are progressing quite well. I think I'm adapting well to life as a stay-at-home mom. I enjoy it (most of the time), and I'm glad things are working out so that I don't have to go back to work. It's so much fun to be with Amy and to watch her learning and getting bigger. It really seems these days like you can actually see the wheels turning. She just loves watching things and stares, like, "I can't figure you out yet....but I'm gonna!" She's getting so much stronger, too! She loves standing up, and her legs are strong enough that I don't really even have to help her much. Her neck muscles have also gotten stronger, so she has pretty good control of her head, too. It seems like she's eager to be moving, she gets pretty frustrated when she realizes she's 'stuck' somewhere. Poor kid.
She's starting to coo a little more now, which is cute. And she turned over a few days ago without any help! We were having some playtime, so I was down next to her on the floor. She looked over at me at seemed to be thinking pretty hard about something, and next thing I know, she just flipped over onto her back and gave me a huge grin! It was so adorable!
Amy is a little over two months now, so here are some pictures.
Just because I want to, here's a progression from newborn to now (or rather, now to newborn, since for some reason it isn't letting me copy/paste the pictures):
I think since I'm having such a difficult time with the pictures, I'll make a new post with more pictures.
