2 months (plus some)

I have been slacking in posting this...my little girl is 2 1/2 MONTHS ! I seriously can' t believe how fast it has gone by.

First of all she had her 2 month checkup a week and a half ago. Lucky for us, Jared decided he could work from home and go with us, since both Kerrigan and I had a rough time with her first shots! She did awesome, though, and I only cried a little : )

She is now 23" tall, her head circumference is 15" and she weighed 10lbs 12 oz...can you believe she double her weight in 2 months!!!! She caught up in weight with her long distance buddy Carter (one of my BFF's who had her baby on the same day as me, but he was almost a pound bigger than K) and is now longer than him. I think most of her weight is in her thunder thighs:

She is also getting so strong...tummy time is paying off and she is getting much better at holding her head up.
She is now sleeping in 6-8 hrs stretches at night...IN HER OWN BED/ROOM!!! She did awesome with the transition. From the first night, she has never had a problem...I, on the other hand, cried every time I woke up and she wasn't next to me for the first few nights (so tough, I know).

She is also so observant and aware these days. She smiles at us constantly (but the camera freaks her out so smiling pictures are rare). Big K also loves her mobile. We can turn it on, and she lays there mesmerized for 10 minutes before getting bored and needing a change in scenery.


My all time favorite new development...she is now big enough to fit into her 0-3 month clothes and looks too cute for words, so I posted a bunch of pictures. This was her first time wearing jeans and I think she looks like a little person, instead of a new baby. I LOVE IT!!!!


I am trying to get better with photography, and I personally feel I ROCKED IT with this picture... at least for an amateur!

I can't believe how lucky I am! I must have done something very right to earn the privilege of waking up to this face everyday!!!

What a pretty little girl! I'm so jealous that babies can have guilt free thunder thighs. I totally agree. You rocked that photography stuff.
