2 Months!

Is it really possible that Harper is already 2 months old? We had her 2 month check up today and her's her stats: 10 pounds even; 23 inches long! She is in the 75th percentile for height and somewhere between 25th and 50th for weight. (I'll estimate 40th) Definitely a long skinny thing!

She is a great sleeper. On an average night her last feeding will be at 10pm and she'll sleep straight through until 4:30 or 5am. (which she has actually been doing since about 6 weeks or so) After a little breakfast, she usually sleeps until 8 or 9. Some nights she wakes up for the darn passy in the middle of the night... but if we give it to her, she's right back to sleep. This is why I am trying to teach her how to suck her fingers, hand, thumb... anything that she can do by herself...I know, I know... dentists and dental hygienists everywhere are shrieking! Hey, a mom's got to sleep, right?

Harper's temperament is great. She is a very happy baby, she usually only cries when she has a need. She smiles a lot, especially in the morning, and loves watching everything Grace does. She's patient with all Grace's kisses, snuggles, 'bonks' and tugs. She's a kind of go with the flow baby for sure. She's started 'talking' to us a little bit and every sound she makes, Grace is convinced that Harps is trying to say her name.

We are still wearing newborn diapers and newborn-3 month clothes... I do put size one diapers on her at night because they hold more and I don't have to get up and change her when I hear an explosion through the monitor... (don't judge... I need sleep!)

She's been to 2 hockey games and made her debut on the jumbo-tron last night. She's not crazy about the LOUD noises (aka. the blaring-fog horn thing) but enjoys all the lights and of course all the attention she gets.

Here are some pictures of her latest skills:
Sitting in the Bumbo.

Tolerating tummy time, with a little help from the boppy.

Drinking out of a bottle! (Yay for me, right!)

Taking in the many, many, many things Grace says to her throughout the day.

She's so beautiful Jamie, she looks like a porcelain doll. Thanks for letting me cuddle her last night.

She is so pretty! I'm glad she's doing better. Thanks for the reminder about money! We all need that reminder that we should trust in God and not money or things.
