The One with Jane at 2 Months

Little Jane is 2 months new today! 
 Length: 22.6" (25-50%) 
Weight: 11 pounds 3.2 ounces (25-50%) 
Head circumference: 15.47" (25-50%)

Looks like she's well on her way to having a big head like Fox :)

Where do I even begin? She's such a fun and cute and sweet and adorable and likable and cuddly little girl.
I love her eye color - bluish/gray. Fox's were the exact same and now his are hazel so she'll probably have hazel eyes too. When she was in utero I always imagined she'd have brown eyes. Who knows, maybe they'll change.
This girl is the world to me! She is so much fun and such an angel baby.
She loooooooves to be held and almost always falls asleep within 5 minutes if she's cradled in my arms.
She only cries when she's hungry, tired, needs a diaper change, or is wearing a dress. Haha, seriously, as soon as I put a dress on she starts fussing and then once I take it off she stops. I guess she's not much of a girly-girl!
She LOVES to sleep swaddled up like a mummy. Or a baby burrito. Snug as a bug in a rug!
Fox is getting more affectionate with her and holds her frequently - under our constant supervision! Because yes, he has bopped her on the head multiple times with his toys... I hear 2nd children are pretty tough and get used to these attacks...
Perhaps it's because she's my second so I know the drill, but I think she's an easier baby than Fox. Fox came out and was wide awake all day every day. Jane sleeps much more, which is so helpful when I'm trying to take care of Fox and work full time and then some.
Still loves her binky.
She's a pretty good sleeper during the night. She has a "cranky" period every night without fail around 5:30pm when she's simply done for the day. So I bathe her, feed her, swaddle her, and she goes to sleep. I wake her up around 9:30pm before I go to bed to feed her, then she wakes up at 1am, and 5am and is up for a few hours at 8am (I wake up at 6:30). So I wake up with her twice a night. Not too bad. I don't have high hopes for 8 hour stretches anytime soon - Fox didn't start sleeping 7pm-8am until he was 8 months old. 6 more months until I can expect a good night's sleep I'm guesstimating! It's all worth it though! And really, I'm not even that tired during the day, thank heavens!
She is starting to smile more and more and more and I just love it so! What really gets her going is when you call her "Pretty girl!" She's kind of obsessed with herself. There's a mirror above her swing and she sits there and stares and coos at herself for a long time. I've got to get it on video because it's hilarious. Our little narcissist.
Her eyelashes are growing - I hope they're as long and full and pretty as Fox's! Or maybe I don't... we'll have to chase the boys away with a stick!
Her hair is thinning, just like Fox's did, but hopefully it'll grow back soon, like Fox's did :)
"Why is a camera always in my face?"
Pretty sure I could just stare at her pretty face allllll day long!
We love you sweet little girl!

She is soooo sweet! London is kind of obsessed with herself too. If I sit her in front of a mirror she could be happy for hours! And if you ever give her a compliment she smiles at you like, "Yeah, I know I'm cute, thanks!"

Too much cuteness in one post! She is so adorable. And Fox is such a sweet brother. So glad she is easier. I know I could not handle another Emma. And for a shock...Emma at 12 mos weighed 14 lbs!
