Mallory turned two months old yesterday... month 2 has definitely been more challenging than month 1! She still loves to eat, which is a good thing, but also sometimes difficult because I want her to hold out longer than she thinks she should. She is sleeping in the swing during the day and has decided she doesn't like the crib too much anymore. She used to go several hours at a time every night, and now we're lucky to get more than an hour at a time. For example, last night she woke up to eat at 3:30 a.m. By the time I had her settled back down and in the crib, it was 5:00 a.m. I was hoping to make it to 6:30 a.m. - she woke back up at 5:40 a.m. During the night, she does go back to sleep with minimal trouble, but during the day she often gets very fussy and cries quite a bit before she will give in. She still takes the paci when she wants to, but often refuses it when she is really tired, which is frustrating! The good news is that we know she can go 6-7 hours without eating - the problem is that she is yet to do that combined with sleeping on her own! Her two month appointment is next week, so I'm curious to see what she weighs. She's definitely getting chubbier, but really just grew out of her newborn clothes.

About the pics - I like how Karen has posted current pics of Brooke with some when she was a baby on her blog. I decided it would be fun to do something similiar - below are pics of Mallory at two months, then two each of Drew and Brady at the same age (they were supposed to be under her pics, but I messed up and couldn't fix it!) . As you can see, she still looks a lot like Drew!

She definitely resembles Drew as a baby. Looks like what hair she has is red? Great new pictures..can't believe she's two months already! Can't wait to meet her!
