Wren at 2 months

  • Started giving smiles voluntarily.  She's the happiest in the morning right when she wakes up.  It's the sweetest little smile.  She gives her grandma's the most smiles with Daddy coming in at a close second. 
  • Is slowly finding her voice.  She makes little coos here and there, but mostly just likes to listen to people talk to her.  
  • Loves bath time.  It's a surefire way to get her to calm down at night (her fussiest time).
  • We finally have somewhat of a nighttime routine, and it is so nice.  We usually give her a bath at 8:30 and then she's usually down for the night between 9:00 and 10:00.  She usually wakes up between 3:00 and 4:00 am to eat, and then goes right back down until 7:00-8:00.  Did I mention how nice it is!?  Her schedule loving parents are in heaven!  Haha.
  • We found out early on that she prefers to be swaddled.  Such a change for us.  Trey HATED being swaddled so I'm surprised we even tried it.  I'm glad we did because it calms her down. She gets really overwhelmed at night and starts waving her arms uncontrollably, so she can't calm down.  She fights it at first and then quickly settles down and usually stays swaddled all night.  
  • She slept in a little bassinet for the first 6 weeks but sleeps in her crib every night now.
  • Eats 2-4 oz every 2-3 hours.  She likes to snack and acts like she is dying of starvation, then is content after 1 oz. Silly girl.
  • Has the silliest fake cry.  It's so dramatic and Dave and I can't help but laugh when she uses it.  
  • She's a pretty content baby...until she doesn't want to be. Haha.  She really only cries when she needs something, but oh my, when she needs something, she needs it NOW!       
  • She looks so much like Trey.  It's crazy to me how similar they look.  We often joke that she is the girl version of Trey.
  • She kept most of her hair and it's coming in pretty red.  We're thinking it will be strawberry blonde.  She has a ton of little tufts of hair in the back with pretty much nothing on top!  Haha.
