Our sweet girl was 2 months yesterday but since I was sick, I couldn’t celebrate. I am feeling SOOO much better, by the way. Except for a bum hip from being in bed all day? Or getting old? Which Samuel told me I was the other day. We were playing a game and he said, “Zakkai goes first, then me, then you because you are old.” I said, “Old?!! You think I’m old?!” To which he replied, “Well… just a little old.” So there you have it.
Ms Eliana has wrapped her sweet, chubby self around each and every one of our fingers in her 2 months here!
(See, Emily? She and Alaina can match! One of my very favorite outfits!)
She wasn’t feelin’ me taking her picture today as we tortured her with shots and she wasn’t feeling so hot. As in, all of the sudden this afternoon, several hours after shots, she woke up and cried inconsolably for 45 minutes before tylenol kicked in and she fell asleep on my chest 😦
Anyways, Ms Chub-chub weighs 10lbs 15.5oz and grew an inch and a half in the past month and is now 22 1/2 inches long! The boys weight over 11 lbs at their ONE month check-ups:)
How she is changing:
She is starting to hold onto our hands and her own hands a lot!
She is cross-eyed less than last month but still makes some pretty cute cross-eyed baby faces!
Her hair is turning blonder all the time!
Her eyes are still a deep blue and I don’t expect them to change.
She is a VERY happy baby when she gets good sleep.
And speaking of sleep, she is so not consistent and it drives.me.nuts. She was in a great groove for a good week or so of sleeping 7:30pmish to 12:30amis after she got over her “crazy spell.” And I fully expected it to keep on going but she rebelled on Friday, waking up every 2 hours. Sigh. She has good days and bad days and we can’t figure out why. At least she puts herself to sleep much, much better after much hard work on our part! Maybe she’ll kick back into groove tonight…
She loves to smile and show off her gorgeous dimple (LOVE it!) and she almost laughed one day.
She is starting to talk more and more and tell us many stories.
Sometimes she smiles and then all of the sudden it turns into a little fuss and her bottom lip sticks out. It is totally endearing:)
She is definitely more of a fusser/whiner/squawker than a screamer. When she screams, which is rare, I know something is definitely up like overtiredness…or shots:(
She is beautified daily by her brothers who love to pick out hairbows and clothes:)
She is loved.
