Two Months Old

Sophie you are two months old. Ok, technically 2.5 months old but seeing as how I haven't even done your one month post lets not get hung up on technicalities. And perhaps one day I will come back and add pictures actually taken on my camera. For now these will have to do.

You are so sweet and smile all the time. You do get very upset when you're tired. It's my fault. I trained you to sleep in your crib and you prefer that. Speaking of sleep, you're a rock star. Since 5 weeks you have slept from 10-7; at 9 weeks you slept 9-7; and just this week you started 7-7. Thank you! The last few weeks the 45 minute intruder has tried to ruin our nap time. We're staying strong though and working through it. :)

You had been taking 6-4oz bottles but now that you are taking 5 bottles some are 4oz and some are 5oz. You like to eat!

You wear size 0-3m clothes and a few 3m things. You wear a size 1 diaper.

You are 80% for weight, 60% for height, and 45% for head. These measurements aren't completely accurate because they are as of 2.5 months. We'll have a better idea of how you really measure up at your 4 month appointment.

You have acid reflux but for the last month you've been taking Prevacid which seems to help.

You love to play. You like to be flat on your back playing with toys hanging from your play mat. You also love when people talk to you. You want lots of attention and since you're so cute you get it.

You talk all the time. You really like to talk right before nap or bedtime. You are so sweet to listen to. You are starting to spit and blow spit bubbles. Not very lady-like but we'll work on it!

Besides your voice you've discovered your tongue, hands, feet, and my hair. Please stop pulling it. It hurts mommy.

You sure are a sweet addition to our family. We all adore you, even Sadie. Hard to remember what life was like before you. So thankful you are our little girl. We love you!

Dancing Queen

A couple of weeks ago Sadie went to a birthday party for her friend Willow. It was at The Little Gym here in Little Rock. She had the best time and I had so much fun watching her. I was amazed at how well she followed the teacher's instructions and listened. It was at that moment I realized she might be able to handle gymnastics or dance. It wasn't a difficult decision to decide which would be best for Sadie. She loves to dance and pretty much always has. I will admit, the girl has got some moves. I decided to ask around and check a few places out. We decided on one we felt would be a good fit for all of us.
Our first item on the to-do list was to buy shoes and leotards.

Sadie loved trying on shoes. It was so cute watching her walk around in tiny tap shoes. She became such a big girl in a matter of seconds.

Her first dance class was so much fun. She went right in to class and didn't bat an eye. She stood around and watched at first but the she quickly loosened up. It was nice getting to watch her dance on the monitor out front.

I'm so thankful Sadie is able to do this. She has so much fun and it's good physical activity. I also think its great for her to listen to someone and learn to follow directions. She is a tad privileged at church and school so she needs another place of instruction.
