Susannah update :: two months

I'll probably say this every month, but I cannot believe how quickly the time is going. Our little tiny girl has now lost her newborn look, and, as Grandpa Lloyd said, is "becoming a baby."

Topping her list of milestones this month has to be some serious smiling. Her first little grin peeked out on December 26th, and while they do take a little work to coax out, once she gets going they really fly. In my very biased opinion, they are the most beautiful little girl smiles I've ever seen. :-) Sleeping has also been a skill greatly improved in the past month, with several 6-hour stretches during the night. She's consistently going 4 hours at a time, and I'm crossing my fingers that the trend continues.

Aaron continues to fall more and more in love with his baby sister. She is greeted with a myriad of phrases: "Hi, little girl!" being the most popular, followed by "Hi, cutie" or "Oh, precious!" Wonder where he hears those? Mama and Daddy are enjoying watching him grow into the best big brother ever. I don't know if there is anything more heart-warming than watching your children love each other.

Susannah, sorry to say, is not the supermodel her brother is. Not that she's any less beautiful... she just has no love for the camera. Photo sessions are short and sweet! So here are a few from her 2-month session...

Of course, my trusty assistant was there every step of the way to help (and yes, by "help" I do mean "get in the way"). Check out his creative technique!

She is one beautiful girl, wouldn't you say?

LOL, I can relate: my little one (she's 3 months - born October 9th) doesn't like the camera either! Whereas, her older brother (who is almost 6 years old) is the ultimate ham!

She is SO precious Sarah! Love the outfit too! Our little girls will have to have a "playdate" one of these days - they can sit and grin at each other. :)
