The gremlin is 2 months old!

May 30, 2010

It was exactly 8 weeks ago to the day that Sienna entered the world.

Then you were a sweet, quiet, sleepy baby who only interrupted us when you were starting to get hungry, and fell asleep as soon as you ate.

NOW you:

1. constantly grunt like a gremlin or sometimes a pig, it’s hard to tell the difference. But it’s cute and funny how low and robust your little voice is.

2. try to crawl away when I put you on your tummy during bath time, which only gets you incredibly frustrated because as hard as you kick your legs, you just can’t get away! We think you are really a steroid-popping body-builder trapped in a baby’s body. The day you become mobile is the end of my sanity.

3. refuse to sleep–you are perfectly content with taking only a 1 hour nap during the day and sleeping just 4 hours at night. Seriously, i don’t know what kind of pills you’re popping, but I need some to keep up with you and your crazy baby energy.

4. are strong enough to lift your entire torso up off the floor and hold yourself up like that for minutes at a time–we are constantly amazed at how strong you are!

5. grab everything within arms’ reach–at bath time, you grab on to the tub of water and try to pull it over–it’s come close a few times and I have to keep you far away in fear that you will pull the whole thing over and drench yourself.

6. kick your legs like your biking as fast as possible all day long. I seriously don’t know where your energy comes from.

7. Love your swing…for about 20 minutes. then you scream until I come pick you up.  that wicked winny the pooh swing with 6 speeds, classical music options, and soothing nature sounds! torture!

8. You fit into SOME of your 0-3 month clothes, but your chubby legs start to get constricted. So most of the time you’re wearing 3-6 months.

9. You wear size 2 diapers.

10. Your eyes are definitely a deep blue color, and your hair gets lighter and lighter every day. But your face looks a LOT like your daddy when he was a baby–especially when you smile.

11. When you first wake up in the morning, you fart like crazy! A habit you clearly inherited from your dad. I’m still working on capturing your lady-like behavior on camera.

12. You love to be held.

13. You smile and grin a lot now and try sooo hard to giggle–but little squwaks come out instead.

14. You think your fists taste great and you are constantly shoving them in your mouth

15. Your little personality is really starting to show. I think we’ve got a feisty one on our hands!
