Elise - 2 Months

Dear Elise,

Time is flying by - yesterday you were 2 months old! You are growing every day right before our eyes. Here is what you have been up to:
  • You were at the Dr. just before Thanksgiving and you weighed 9lbs. 1oz, with clothes and a full diaper, so we think you were at a little under 9lbs. You will go to the Dr. for your first shots this Friday and we will know an updated weight then.
  • You eat 3oz. every 3 hours, except after your bedtime feeding, when you stretch to 4-5 hours--we are really grateful for the extra sleep time we get then!
  • You wear size 1 diapers.
  • You are at the in between stage for clothing. We have a few 0-3 month outfits that work well, but you are busting out of newborn size and swimming in 3 month size.
  • Your eyes are still blue, a very dark slate blue and we think they may change before it is all said and done.
  • You still have a ton of spiky hair and we love experimenting with different headbands. You are a good sport and tolerate it!
  • You are a lot more alert during the day and wake only once in a typical night.
  • You get the hiccups all the time!
  • You sleep in your crib, since you didn't like the pack-n-play in our room.
  • You enjoy taking walks with Scarlett and your Daddy.
  • You stayed with your first babysitters this month, twice with Mimi and then with Ms. Judy at church. You did great!
  • You smile and "talk" to us a lot and we think it is the best sound!
  • Your Daddy texts me funny pics of you during the day while I am at work. They make me smile!

You change so much every day and we feel so blessed to be a part of it!

Mommy (and Daddy!)

Awww so cute!! I adore the Call Me Maybe photo! I have one of my niece doing the same thing when she was about the same age.

Omg she is just beautiful. And that little red mark on the picture on the right looks like a heart. Coincidence, I think not!
