2 Months Old

Elise is 2 months old!  These posts are going to be filled with pictures!

Dear Elise,

I have no clue where these weeks are going.  I thought they were moving fast when I was pregnant but they are moving at a warp speed.  You are smiling at every chance you get.  You love being talked to and we are starting to have little “conversations.”  You love your diaper-changing table.  I don’t know what it is about it… maybe it is because it is where you get pretty.  

You love sleeping with daddy and I.  Most nights you snuggle up against me, nurse, and fall asleep.  You have had a few long stretches of sleep at night; I think the longest one to date was 6 hours. I was very proud and so very rested.  You have also started to take naps in your crib but today and yesterday were washes.  One day at a time.  For now, you still love cuddling up to me and napping on the couch.

You’re a tiny little girl being in only the 8th percentile for height and 16th for weight.  But your head is growing and housing a nice and big brain.  You’re in the 81st percentile for head size.  You had your first round of vaccines last week and I think my soul died a little and I will probably remember that cry for the rest of my life. 

What you think about shots!
Your newborn days are fleeting and I find it hard that they are leaving us so quickly, yet I am happy you are growing so well and you seem like you’re loving your life and your family.  You already have such a BIG personality!

Just a couple of your faces!

You’re a happy little baby as long as you’re rested, fed, and held the right way.  You’re your mother’s daughter for sure.  You had a few crying boughts at 6-8 weeks but it has since slowed down quite a bit.  I’m not quite sure how its possible to love you more each day but it sure does happen.  I think we have finally become the little mother daughter team and we have gotten a pretty good routine down.  We have finally gotten to know each other and it is only going to get better from here.   Your first holiday is coming up… Thanksgiving!  And boy am I thankful for you.  You have made us our little family!
