Two Months Old

Where has the time gone? I can't believe my baby is 2 months old. Actually she was two months old a week ago and I'm just finding time to update.

Ellie has been smiling since she was 5 weeks old and smiles all the time. She's also cooing and "talking" to us and it's the best. She loves her mobile in her crib. She'll lay there and just talk to her butterfly friends as they spin around. She also enjoys her play mat. The flashing lights and mirror seem to interest her most. Ellie definitely recognizes our voices. When I come into the room and say something she whips her head around as fast as she can to find me. She does the same thing for Barry.

When we went for her 2 month well baby visit, she weighed 9lbs 14oz and was 22" long. She wants her bottle about every 3-4 hours and takes 4 ounces at a time. I think she's ready for 5 though because last night and today she's wanted more several times and will take the extra ounce. She also got her shots. It was NO fun for me or for her! My poor baby screamed her head off for about 10 minutes. I scooped her up as soon as they were done with the shots and she kept right on crying. She was pretty miserable for a couple days. She had a slight fever and was super cranky which is not like her at all.

Ellie is truly the BEST baby ever. She is so easy going and sweet, sweet, sweet. She is a mamma's girl right now. She snuggles right into my body whenever I hold her. It is the best feeling ever. I love this baby more and more each day.  When she's crying I can pick her up or take her from someone else and she stops crying immediately.  Is it bad that I love that?!  :)

She's also a really good sleeper. We have had several nights that she's slept through the night. We lay her down awake and she goes to sleep right away most of the time. There are times we have to go back in and put her pacie back in her mouth, but it doesn't take long. Speaking of her pacie...she loves it! She only takes it when she's sleepy, but it's a must have then.

I can tell Ellie is becoming more and more social and also mobile. She's started rolling onto her side...not over at all, but just up onto her side. It's pretty cute.

I went back to work Monday and although I have a great class and love what I do, I hated it! I was dreading it for over a week. Who am I kidding??  I've been dreading it since before we brought Ellie home.  My class was great and so happy to see me, but I missed Ellie so much. I couldn't wait to get home to her. The evening time goes by way too fast!

Here are some recent pics. I still need to upload her 2 month onesie pics, but I just don't feel up to doing that tonight.

Loves her bath time!

Daddy got his girl this super cute owl towel

She's over it and ready for bed.

I found CB here on the sponge that I store on the bottom shelf of the island.  I guess it's a good spot.  ha!

My best friend Laurie came to visit and meet Miss Ellie.

Isn't this outfit adorable??  My friend Deni sent it to Ellie.  It came with a bib too.   Thanks Deni for all the cute things you sent us.  We love them!

I love these socks!  Dollar Spot at Target!

I'll say it again...I'm going to try and start blogging more regularly.  I miss it and I want to have a record of everything.  I've been trying to catch up on blogs, but can't seem to get to them all.  Sorry friends...I promise I'll get there eventually!

She is so stinking cute! And I'm sorry you had to go back to work and it's hard being away from sweet Ellie, I'd be sad too! Love her expressions she's making now, it's adorable to see their little personalities coming out! Funny, I was looking at the St. Pat's outfit thinking--That is sooo cute! It's way cuter on her than a hanger, I'm so glad she got to enjoy it! Those socks are precious. I love getting your updates, it makes my heart smile!
