She is beautiful!
You're quite lucky to have a little girl that's so photogenic. I'm sure you will have TONS of opportunities to get some great shots as she's growing up too!!
Very cute! It might just be me but it looks like you might have just missed the focus on her eyes. I think her nose looks nice and sharp and her eyes and mouth are ever so slightly out of focus. Are you using the 50mm wide open at f/1.8? Don't be afraid to use a higher ISO so that you can bump that up to around f/4 maybe. That way the focal range is a little larger and you don't miss the focus just by breathing.
To build on what Ajay said, look at the DOF calculations below. With the settings you used. ISO 100 and F2, your DOF was about one inch total.
Higher ISA, smaller f stop, greater DOF.
