2 Months Old

On Sunday, Clara was 2 months old.  In the last few days she’s become so much more aware of sounds around her and startles much easier than before.  She also discovered her fists and now puts them right in front of her eyes to study them.  Clara is also much more interested in her “toys.”  She watches the mobile on her swing and tries to hit the bears that hang from her bouncy seat.  She also really enjoys laying on her floor gym and studying all the things hanging from it.  Clara also seems really close to rolling from her back to her tummy.  She has been very close to doing this several times, but just hasn’t put it all together.  She still doesn’t really like tummy time and is still working on really getting her head up and turned while on her tummy.  This month Clara also started sleeping through the night on a regular basis starting at 6 weeks.  She decided her bedtime would be right around 9pm and most nights she sleeps until about 6 or 7 am.  Of course every once in awhile she does still decided to wake up for a middle of the night snack :)

Clara loves it when you talk with her and will get the biggest smile.
