I don't know if it's just me, but, I swear Alette is magic. Sort of anyway. She just manages to do somethings that I have no idea how she was able to do it, and it's always when my back is turned! Examples:
- We set her in her crib one way and when I go to get her in the morning she is laying in the opposite direction.
- She manages to push herself off of her blanket when she's on the ground.
Well, those are the only two I can think of at the moment, but I know there are more examples I just can't think of. I try watching her to see if I can catch her moving, nothing. She simply will not move around like that when I'm looking. She's a bit stubborn, but I will catch her. Maybe.

2 month and 2 feet

Alette sitting in her bumbo.

Alette has hit her two month mark. She is growing SO fast it's unbelievable.

Her new stats:
Weight: 13 lbs 4 oz (at birth she weighed 6 lbs 15 oz) She's in the 97%
Length: 24 1/2 in (at birth she measured 19 inches) Can you believe that, in 2 months she's grown 5 1/2 INCHES! She's off the charts for height.

At two months Alette can:
Hold her head up for about 5 minutes
Smiles when you talk to her and smile at her
Sleep through the night (she slept 11 hours last night, went to bed at 7:30 pm woke up at 6:30 am)
Put herself to sleep

Things that make Alette happy:
She LOVES to eat, she eats a HUGE amount for such a small belly
Bath time, she will sit in her bath and smile and coo at us, she splashes her little legs too
Sitting up on the couch or in her Bumbo
Her Binky when she's about to go to bed, she'll suck for a little while and then spit it out when she's ready to be put in her crib
Let's not forget...Daddy makes her happiest! (written by her daddy)
