The many faces of 8 weeks

Our baby is 8 weeks today! Lately she has been full of expression.

  • She is a very happy baby except between the hours of 5-8 pm
  • She sleeps anywhere from 6-12 hours per night, but typically around 8
  • She smiles a TON. We love it!
  • Was ok with the bottle at 4 weeks but we got lazy with practicing and now she won't take it
  • She is starting to move her arms toward a few things
  • Coos a little and almost makes a laughing noise
  • Loves to track our faces
  • Loves to watch her big sister!

Ellie Says

Here are some random bits of the things we hear from our silly Ellie girl...

Mommy: Don't run out in to the street
Ellie: Yeah, I get smashed
Ellie to Mommy: Sing happy birthday to my poopy
Mommy: It is nap time
Ellie: Nope its cracker time

Ellie to Mommy: I want some more money
Ellie to Daddy when getting dressed: Daddy, I don't have boobies
Mommy: It is nap time so let's go potty first
Ellie: No, I go potty in my bed

Ellie: I want a cracker
Mommy: I want to go to Jamaica
Ellie: Jamaica all gone
Mommy: Good job going pee on the potty!
Ellie: Mommy, I'm so proud of you
First snow of the year
Ellie: "It's snowing! I slide down hill outside with daddy"
(we could not believe she remembered this from last year!)

Kyla - 1 Month!

Kyla had her 1 month well baby check-up yesterday. She was 10 lbs 13 oz (87%) and 23" (94%). She is a big girl and even bigger than her sister at this age! The pediatrician said she is very advanced as she was smiling and cooing during her exam :)
