two months, too quick

It's hard to believe that our little baby girl is now two months old today.  I'm not ready for her to grow up yet.  Knowing that she is our last little baby, I'm trying to hold her extra tight, but the days still slip by.  Having a five, three and a half, and two year old, I know all too well how quickly time goes by.  It seems like just yesterday, Addyson was born.  She was our biggest baby, weighing in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
In these past two months, she has gained over three pounds and looks huge!  She isn't a tiny, little newborn anymore.  Since she is growing up, her sleeping habits are slowly getting better.  Her fussy period used to be from two to four in the morning.  During those two hours, you either had to be rocking her or have her in the swing.  She still doesn't sleep through the night, but at least when she wakes up in the middle of the night she falls right back to sleep.  While I'm still tired, I'm not completely exhausted like I used to be.
I sure am loving every minute with her, and I love watching her siblings give her lots of hugs and kisses.  They adore their new baby sister.  We have four healthy, happy, and beautiful children and we couldn't be more thrilled about it.  All the tired days and nights we've gone through are so worth it for each and every one of them.

She is sooooo precious! Oh, I just want to hold her. I can't believe she is 2 months either! Wow...slow down time.
I'm glad sleeping is going better. That is so important.
I hope we can talk soon. I'll give you a call in the next few days.
