Update : {7 & 8 Months}

Oh sweet baby #2, here we are again. Doubling up on your monthly updates. Remember my darling, I love you more than you could possibly know. And I love making memories with you. Sometimes I get so caught up in the present moment, that I forget to jot everything down. But truthfully, it doesn’t bother me. I would much rather spend my time bonding with you and your sister, than doing anything else! So here it is baby girl, your highlight reel of months 7 & 8!

{Update 7 Months}

  • February 9th you had your first solid food – avocados. You didn’t seem thrilled, but food itself was a new concept to you. It took an additional two weeks to get the “eating concept” down.
  • February 10th the 3 of us went for a walk in the late afternoon. You and big sister enjoyed the stroller ride!
  • February 11 was your first library movie night! Once we arrived you had a bottle, then slept through a majority of trolls.
  • February 14th was not only your first Valentine’s Day, but also your six month check up. (Although you turned 7 months, these reviews are technically from the month prior.)
  • February 15th you slept hardcore on the living room floor. Falling asleep for nap in the afternoon and again in the evening close to bed time. Later in the evening, I held you for a while as you slept! Your rolls are adorable! <3
  • February 17th was one of your first six week baby story time sessions. At the end of the six weeks your were gifted two books “Yummy, Yucky” and
  • February 20th was your first time using the Boon Pulp to eat Bananas! Your expression said it all! <3
  • February 26th you started to army crawl! It’s your current mode of transportation and boy are you fast!
  • February 26th you tried carrots for the first time. You seem to really like them. Although you did finally warm up to avocados as well. Partly because you have the whole eating thing down now.

{Update 8 Months}

  • March 10th you and I hung out all night! After you threw up your bottle all over your sleep sack and me, you were bright eyed and bushed tailed until 3:30am. I loved the way your big eyes started happily up at me, as we caught up on the Ellen Show. It was a party of epic proportions!
  • March 12th was your first time having oranges. Holy Cow! You went to town on the Boon Pulp!
  • March 16th you hung out in your crib while I cleaned. Big sister kept you entertained, as she often does. 🙂
  • March 17th Boon Pulp and green grapes. You were in love! <3
  • March 18th you didn’t want to nap. So you got some one on one time with Mom and Dad!
  • March 20th was the start of napping in your crib on a daily basis and at the same time as your big sister.
  • March 24th was a blow out of epic proportions, which resulted in an immediate bath.
  • April 6th was your first “BABABABA” babble. I am desperately trying to turn that B to an M, while dad is pushing hard for D. Who will win the battle of the first word?

Update : {Five Months}

My sweet baby girl, how can it be five months already? I know I say it time and again, but these updates are coming all too quickly. Time moves like quicksand. I barely have time to grasp one moment before it’s gone, slowly fading from my rearview mirror…

Sweet little one, we love so much! Do you know that? Do you know how much your big sister loves to play with you?

Baby Girl – {Five Month Update}

  • Saturday, December 17th was your first family Christmas. You wore the same adorable outfit as big sister did for her first Christmas! You were perfectly happy! This was your first visit with your Great-grandparents and they loved you! Great-grandma even holding you for a quick photo.
  • Christmas Eve was your first time at Church and you very well! I feed you and you slept through most of it.
  • Big sister helped you open your Christmas Eve gift – purple footy pajamas with a monkey on them.
  • Christmas Day was a lovely First Christmas for you! I placed you in your activity seat and big sister helped you open your gifts. Your favorite gift is a teething book, “Guess How Much I Love You” that Santa placed in your stocking!
  • Sing – your first movie on Christmas Day. We feed you before we left. I held you in the theater and you fell asleep about 20 minutes into it. Then you woke up for a short time. You fussed for a moment or two, so I feed you and you went right back to sleep. Your first movie was a success!
  • In the last two months you have been moving all over your play mat and often times moving off of it.
  • Wednesday, December 28th you cut your first two teeth, the bottom two front ones!
  • Saturday, December 31st at 1:00pm you rolled over for the first time from tummy to back! I was able to snap a photo after your second time rolling over, but you haven’t allowed me to capture it on video.
  • January 3rd at 9:30am was your first cloth diaper experience.
  • When I tickle your neck, you give a deep belly laugh! It’s too cute!

Update : {Three & Four Months}

Oh sweet little one of mine, I suppose these are the pitfalls of being a second child. Life got in the way… The holidays were busy from start to finish – packed full of holiday cheer.

But please know little one, it isn’t that you were thought of less. Quite the contrary! We were busy making memories and sharing memories with you! So many firsts for you this holiday season, for us as a family of four!  We love you!

Update : {Two Months Old}

Here we are baby girl, you and me in a little coffee shop while your big sister is burning off some energy at preschool. You are all wrapped up in the Solly, sleeping peaceful on my chest. What are you dreaming about little one? Are you dreaming about climbing the highest mountain? Are you flying high above the clouds, heading straight for a shooting star? Oh little one, how I wonder what your dreaming about.

As I still here, quietly tucked away in a corner, I can hear the soft sound of conversations buzzing all around us. Whenever I come here with you baby girl, you steal the show. So many compliments on your adorable little self. Your adorable little two month old self! Time is so bittersweet! You are constantly growing and changing. I just want to bottle it all up and keep it forever, but unfortunately, thats not how it works. Luckily, I can at least capture those memories through photographs, video, and writing.

So my sweet little babe, here is a
