Two Months!

Two months old already? Wow! I know everyone says that time just seems to fly by, and I really think once you have children that expression comes to light even more! This past month has been just as wonderful as the first. Here are a few things I will want to remember about our precious Reese Elizabeth:

Stats:
Height: 22 inches (35%)
Weight: 9 lbs 4 oz (13%)

Fun fact...Ashton was 9 lbs 6 oz at this age so they are right on track with each other as of now.

Some "firsts"
-spit bubbles....you started blowing these around 6 weeks old and have only progressed in how often and how many of them you make
-sleep: take about two naps on average during the day for about 45 min to an hour and a half; go to bed around 8-8:30 and sleep for about 4 1/2 hrs then eat, go back down for another 3-4 hrs and sometimes go back down for an extra hour cat nap (this last hour is when you usually snuggle with mommy, which I love!)
-eating: around 9 times a day, just last week I introduced you to a little bit of formula...you are a great nurser but since I will be going back to work soon I am going to need to supplement some since I probably wont be able to pump as much as you would need...at each feeding you are taking about 3-4 oz
-Cooing....you have really started to babble and coo and a slight giggle can be heard occassionally
-Smiling! You smile for Ashton more than anyone else....and yes, he still loves and adores you and likes to say "Hey Reesy Peesy Peesy!" and wants to give you kisses...occassionally he will even ask to hold you
-You LOVE your mobile in your bed...you will stare at it for up to 30 minutes which is so great for Mom and Dad!
-Clothes...you are still in newborn diapers but when I am running short size 1 will due even though newborns still fit the best, but you are out of newborn clothes and into 0-3 months which I want you to stay in forever!
-Love the heat! If you are fussy you still love to go outside and let the sun beat down on you and warm you right up (just like Ashton did!)
-You went swimming for the first time and loved it so much, probably because you love to take a bath and that felt like a big bath to you...nice and warm

That is it for now. Reese you are such a joy and blessing in our lives and we feel so blessed to be your parents. We can't wait to watch you grow more, just not too fast!
