Can't get enough of...

this little mouth!!!

Lyla loves her papa!

Lyla has gotten to spend some extra quality time with Billy in the last week, and she seems to be quite taken with him!  Last Friday, I had a dentist's appointment, so Billy had both Lyla and Timothy all to himself for about an hour for the very first time.  All went swimmingly! Then, over the weekend, Timothy and I got to do some more baking while Billy held Lyla, and she seemed quite content to just hang out with him.  She's responding to him with smiles and coos more and more, and it is just SO cute! I mean, is there anything sweeter than a papa and his baby? I think not.

Lyla Mae, 2 months old

Well, my little girl is definitely more "baby" than "newborn" these days.  Aside from having lost most of the "newborn" look, she is spending a lot more time awake and alert, checking out her surroundings, kicking her legs, and trying to roll from side to side.  She is also vocalizing a lot more, and she's beginning to develop a little bit of a laugh, which sounds like a bit of a gurgle at the moment, and is oh-so cute!  She no longer suffers from male pattern baldness ;) and her eyes are looking clearer, as well these days.  It also appears that she is a thumb-sucker.  After many attempts at stuffing her entire fist into her mouth, and much frustration when her little thumb was tucked neatly inside said fist, she's perfected the art of actually getting the thumb into her mouth and keeping it there.  She continues to be a sweet, mellow little girl, and she is just a joy to be around, and so easy to love!

Here are her 2-month stats:
Weight: 10lbs 11ozs (75th percentile)
Length: 23" (75th percentile)
Head circumference: 15.5" (50th percentile)

Nakey Time!

Lyla had a bit of diaper area irritation today, so I decided to let her go au naturale after bath time this afternoon.  Timothy thought that sounded like great fun, so he followed suit.  He ended up sitting on his potty for the better part of an hour, eating lunch and playing with his "babies" (his tools), at which point he got up, went out in the back yard, and peed out there.  I'd say it must be a boy thing, but these two have an auntie who used to enjoy nature in that way as well. ;)

Stop growing, babies!!! That's all I have to say about that.
