Rylin: Two Months.

{Big brother already knows how to pick on you!}

Stats: 11 lb. 14 oz (60%)
         24.25 in (97%) Can't believe our girl is so long! So happy that she is gaining and growing though :) 

Firsts: First 4th of July, first birthday party (Henry Cochran), first time to workouts with mom, trip to Gatlinburg, first cold, first baby shower (Meaghan/Ellie Odom), first trip to Auburn, first wedding attended (Your great Mammamw got married!)!

Milestones: Smiling on demand, cooing often, sleeping 8 hour stretches at night!

Food: As your stats stated, you are doing a wonderful job in the eating department. You now eat pretty regularly every 3 hours and at night you stretch almost 8 hours sometimes!

Sleep: Definitely no schedule quite yet. You are a wonderful go with the flow little girl though. You sleep quite often. Trying to have you swaddled once for a daytime nap and then around 8-8:30 for bedtime! 

Our days: I haven't been very good at putting you on a schedule. (That's a goal for the upcoming month!) I think I'm really struggling with it because you wake up at different times every morning. We will get better, no worries. Anyways... it goes something like this: you wake up somewhere between 6:30-8 and I feed you. We all get ready and head to workout (MWF) or just leisurely get ready and play and such. You like to snooze in the morning sometimes 9-10:30, then later 1:30-3:30, and then another snooze sometime around 5:30 or so. And then bedtime is between 8 and 8:30. You really are such a great sleeper just like your brother was (fingers crossed that you won't revert at 4 months!)

Favorites: Mommy loves watching you with your brother. He really gets so much joy when he sees you smile at him. Daddy is loving that you are starting to interact more and more! 

Rylin, you continue to amaze us with your easy going, happy self. Me, daddy, and Cameron literally can't get enough of you. We can't believe you are growing so super fast... it's fun to enjoy the newness that comes with growing up, but we already miss some of the little tiny baby fun. We absolutely love that you basically smile on demand. You are one of the most smiley baby's I've ever met! Keep loving, growing, and being amazing! We love you!!
