2 months

     Well, are little girl has turned 2 months old already.  I can't believe it's been this long, but at the same time it feels like she's been with us forever.  Let me say that she has turned into a diva the past couple of weeks.  She's has got me wrapped around her little finger.  She wants to be rocked, but only if she's upright.  She'll eat, but only when she feels like it.  She'll eat a bit, and then rub her eyes, stretch a bit, and then eat some more. I'll give her credit on the eating part.  Since I was able to breastfeed her, we had to go to formula and she has had a rough time on it.  We've tried 3 or 4 different kinds, and they finally put her on soy.  She seems to be doing much better on it.  Thank goodness.  It killed me to see my precious baby in pain from gas.  There has been two times, when she has scared Jarrod and I.  Both times, she was laying all peaceful and just burst into a screaming fit.  This wasn't her normally crying loudly. It went beyond crying.  You would have thought someone had bit her.  She screamed for like 10 minutes and then finally calmed down.  We still don't know what it was. She wouldn't eat, sleep, or be rocked....just screamed.
     But, oh my goodness, she has her good moments too.  She loves the mornings (just like her momma).  She is just the happiest little thing in the morning.  She smiles all the time now, and we are just ready for her to break into her first real laugh.  Right now she squeals when she gets excited.  She is trying so hard to talk.  I seriously think she is going to start talking before she crawls  =)   She loves looking at the walls and really likes our tree pictures we have up.  Future interior decorator maybe??
     I go back to work in three weeks and we still don't know what we're going to do for daycare.  Cutting it too close maybe??  We're just torn with what to do, and we are still hoping that God is going to just give us the answer, one way or another. She is scheduled for her 2 month wellness check on Wednesday and start her vaccine shots.  Something else we aren't sure about.  Man, being a parent is tough work.  It's easy making decisions for yourself, but when it's your child's world that your affecting, it's so much different.
