The Big 2

Norah is officially two months old as of Saturday.

Two months! The time has gone by so quickly. At this rate I fully expect to be a grandma by next week.

Two month olds are awesome. Do you know what they do?

Two month olds smile at their mamas. In Norah's mind I am the prettiest, funniest person in the world. And if that doesn't make your heart swell a little then you have a lump of coal where your heart should be. All it takes is a little eyebrow raising, a little smiling, a little carseat song singing, and I've got big toothless grins shooting at me.

Two month olds talk to their mamas. No seriously. She talks all the time.

Two month olds flirt like crazy. She smiles and bats her beautiful lashes at men, mostly old men which is kind of worrisome but also abusrdly endearing.

Two month olds sleep like 8 hours in a row. Makes for happy parents.

Two month olds know exactly what they want and when they want it. Woe to you if you don't deliver within seconds of the first request.

Two month olds are much heavier in their carseat than newborns in their carseat. Ten pounds of baby plus, like 75 pounds of carseat, equals lots of sweating and possibly swearing.

Two months olds don't barf as much.

So what are you trying to say? Two month olds are or something? No, no I don't believe you. Talk to me at Three months and maybe you have a contender.
