Two Months

Our little Alice is two months old! She had her doctors appointment today and is still not on the charts. However, she is growing and healthy. Alice weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces and she is 20.5 inches. So, she is about the size of a regular newborn now! 

Alice is an incredibly sweet and adorable baby. She has been smiling for about two weeks now and it is pretty much the cutest thing. Alice is especially smiley after she eats at 8:00 at night. I'm not sure why at that particular time, but it seems to be the trend. She has been cooing a bit as well, but is not nearly as talkative as Elanor was. 

Alice has really blue eyes, which you cannot really see in these pictures. Her cheeks seem to be the only place gaining weight. They are awfully pinchable cheeks!

Alice loves to nurse, be outside, be held and talked to, likes to be swaddled when sleepy, she loves looking out windows (especially the one above her changing table) and loves being in the Ergo carrier. She does not like to lay on her back in the bath (she likes to be sitting up), and  she does not love changing clothes. Alice has an impressive set of lungs. She can cry very loud. She was born with that volume. Besides her loud crying, she seems to have a fairly sweet and mild personality. I'm excited to get to know her, as I have a feeling she is a pretty special little girl.

Wee Alice

My good friend, Becky, took a few pictures of Alice when she was just a week old. Alice is still so tiny, but she has already grown and changed so much in two months. Here are a few of those phtotos:

This yawning one is hilarious.

Breaking free of the swaddle!

Her poor little feet. They actually look so much better than they did when she was in the hospital.

She is just so tiny and adorable and I love her.

The Weekly Photo

I didn't get my camera out last week for some reason, so this photo from my phone will have to do.

The Weekly Photo

I know it is Friday and not Monday, but hey, here is a picture from last week:
Elanor loves picking flowers so I decided we would make a flower journal. We picked flowers, I took a picture of the flower, she drew it in her book and we learned a little something about each flower. She loved it and we have many more pages to fill!
