3 Months!


Our little bean is now 3 months old.  I look at her and I can't believe how much she has grown - she used to fit inside my tummy!  My favorites: her cute little stretches after she eats and wakes up, how she smiles when you come over to talk to her, how she likes to join in when you sing to her, her cute little coos, her chunky thighs and cute little feet.

Hoppity Easter!


Happy Easter everyone!  We had a good weekend meeting up with friends, having brunch and egg hunts and Easter crafting!  



Very first Easter pics of the two littles!

And an outtake!  Someone is still not a fan of tummy time!

2 Months!


Anna is now two months old!  She loves to smile back at you when you smile at her and she is starting to babble a lot. 


 Her favorite activity is when you hold her close to your face and talk with her and she also likes to babble to her friends on the gymani too (her favorite is the giraffe).  When she gets tired she will complain to you by babbling extra loudly.  Her nighttime sleep is going pretty well - she will give us a good 5-7 hour stretch of sleep at night (too bad she sleeps early like her brother!) followed by a 3-4 stretch and then another 3 hour stretch of sleep - so she usually sleeps 12-13 hours at night with two feedings in between.  Her daytime naps is much harder to do - she usually is up for about 1.5 hours between each nap and sleeps about 40 minutes (morning) to 1.5 hours if we are lucky (afternoon nap is longest)! The hard part is getting her to nap in the crib since she usually likes the constant rocking of the car or stroller (in which case she passes out instantaneously).  Funnily enough she hates the swing just like her big brother did.  She used to hate being held upright but these days she prefers it vs being held horizontally.  She is not a fan of tummy time and usually complains loudly whenever you try it. 
She just started batting at her friends on the gymani and grabbing the toys (she once held the giraffe for what seemed like 10 minutes).


My favorite thing that she does is this super cute stretch and wiggle she does whenever she wakes up from a good nap or right after she eats.  She looks so content and then right after she will stare at you happily.  Love!


Her 2 month check up was a little bit late but these are her stats (9.5 weeks):

Weight: 11 lbs 1 ou 
Height: 22.24 in 
Head Circumference: 39.5 cm 

Versus big brother at 2 months:
Weight: 11 lbs 10 ou 
Height: 22.75 in 
Head Circumference: 39.1 cm

Baby Pictures

My parents just scanned some of my old baby pictures and sent them to me.  They seem to think Anna looks a lot like when I did as a baby (albeit a smaller version - Anna was born with a weight of 8 lbs 1 ou. and apparently I was born at a whopping 9 lbs, 4 ou).
