At 2 Months Old...

Ella Jane,

At 2 months old you are just plain adorable! You are smiling big smiles at us every day and just yesterday, you started giggling! When you cry you make a sound that sounds just like you're saying "Ma-ma". Your big brother, Ethan used to cry the exact same way! (Yes, your mommy will claim that you are a genius and will say that your first word was at 2 months old and it was "Mama"....haha!). At your 2 month appointment you weighed 11 pounds, 5.5 ounces and you were 22" long. My growing girl!

You started sitting in your Bumbo seat this week. This was the Bumbo I bought for your big brother, Noah...that's why it is blue...but you don't seem to mind one bit!

We still don't know for sure what color your hair will turn out to be, but in the sunlight, you sure do look like a redhead (taking after your Nana!)

You still sleep in your bassinet next to Mommy and Daddy's bed. And yes, you sleep!!!! Mommy checks on you A LOT during the night. She can't help it. She loves you. Since Mother's Day you have been sleeping through the night almost every single night and this makes Mommy SO HAPPY!!! Thank you for this wonderful Mother's Day gift that I hope lasts for years to come! I think the secret is that you like to be wrapped up like a little burrito...

You love your play mat and you have even started grabbing the little sunshine toy that hangs down from it. You also love tummy time!

You really only cry when you get really hungry. (Funny that right as Mommy was typing those words you started demanding your dinner!) You are still nursing like a champ and mommy enjoys the bonding time with you. You really are a very happy baby and your big brother just LOVES making you smile!

We love watching you grow each day! Mommy is sad that she has to go back to work in just 2 weeks, but she's enjoying this time with you. Grow, baby, grow!!!
