Dear Dominique // 2-months

Dear Dominique:
Two months old today Baby Girl! And you still melt my heart everyday. You are a complete joy to be around and so content with everything. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, be it vacuuming, have music on loud and dancing with Violet, watching movies with Daddy or your cousins being really loud, you are pretty content with it all and sleep through everything.
Speaking of sleeping, you are my sleeping baby. We've gotten your routine down and we’re all loving it. Most nights, you’re in bed between 8-9 pm and sometimes I’ll have to come in to give you the soother back and make sure that you’re swaddled tightly (those darn arms keep coming lose!). But then you’ll sleep until 3-4 am and wake up for a full feeding and diaper change and then back to sleep until 8 am when Violet wakes up and our day starts.
You are full of smiles, grins and sticking out the tongue and starting to make your own noises during the day. We've also found out that music is the way to calm you down during the day in between feeding's and I have no problem letting the music blast through the house just to make you happy.
You are still content with being held while you’re awake or in something that keeps you moving. Luckily for us, one of your aunties gave us their baby swing and you love it. We got it the day that I was really sick and was sleeping all day just to get better. You decided to sleep all day as well, except for feeding's and then go back to sleep in the swing. Thank you Baby Girl.
It’s been an amazing journey these last two months, learning to be your Mommy, and at the same time, being Violet’s Mommy as well. We've had it relatively easy with you and for that I thank you. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for all of us.

Love, Mommy
