2 months!


Emma is really growing fast! She got her first round of shots today and was really brave... only crying for a minute. Here were her stats for 2 months:
Weight: 11 pounds 6 ounces (67th percentile)
Length: 23 inches long (76th percentile)

These are all things she has been up to over that last month:
~She smiled for the first time. Although Emma is a pretty serious baby and normally keeps a straight face, she does grace us with those gummy smiles a few times a day.
~Emma is sleeping through the night! Yes, you read that right. For a couple weeks now she has been going to bed around 9:30ish and waking a little after 7! I think I'm still in shock b/c Grace didn't sleep through the night till closer to 6 months and even then she still had nights she got up for a nursing snack.
~Loves her pacifier. It is a true cure-all!
~LOVES to watch her sister.
~Has found the fan, the mobile and anything else that is within a couple feet of her. When she is awake she is very alert.
~Emma is a constant mover. When she is awake she is busy working out her arms and legs by constantly moving them every which way.
~Emma is still a very laid baby and relaxed baby. She is usually very patient, and typically we only hear her cries when she is hungry, or has a little gas (which thankfully isn't very often!).

I think that pretty much sums up our little Emme for this month. :)

OH and happy Cinco de Mayo!

That's fantastic that she's sleeping so long. That's always a blessing. Sounds like she's a great baby!

I can't believe she's two months already. She is so cute!

Thanks for the list of names! All of them are great, except Cade considering my that's my youngest's name and I don't think it would be good to have two kids with the same name!! :)

I totally understand about losing your mind after having a baby...I don't know if I'll ever be back to normal! Oh, and Cole is the name we're thinking about for this one, it seems like it's the best fit so far, we just want to see what else is out there!
