Life without acid reflux

Sara Beth is a very happy easy going baby.  She now likes her swing and will fall asleep in it.  This past weekend, I told Heather that I would take care of her so that Heather could go out and get some errands done.  Sara Beth behaved like a little angel.  While I worked on fixing a broken oven, she sat in her swing.  When I turned around to check on her, she had fallen asleep.  I tried moving her back into an upright position, but she immediately curled back down to rest her head on the side of the chair.  I did place a burp cloth as a small pillow so that her head wasn't resting directly on the plastic.  Later on in the day, she took a nap on my chest.  

SaraB's muscle control has also greatly improved.  Heather captured the below shot today.  We were reading in a book that babies sometimes have a little head control by the time they are two months.  Again, Sara Beth appears to be far ahead of the curve.  We also read that the typical baby begins to support some of their weight on their legs by the time they reach three months.  Again, she appears to be advanced as she does that already.

And last, but certainly not least: we have finally captured a smile on camera.  The below photo is the culmination of weeks of hard work and dedication.  I caught Sara Beth un-awares while Heather was distracting her.
