Christmas Cards

I had a hard time deciding on a style of cards this year so I ended up ordering 3 different kinds! I love shutterfly and order lots of different things from them throughout the year. If you're still shopping around for Christmas cards, you should check them out! They have tons of cute designs to choose from and great customer service!

Kyla Brooke is 2 Months Old!


My sweet Kyla Brooke,

You are 2 months old! Here's what you're up to at this point in your lil' life.

-You are wearing 0-3 month and 3 month size clothes and size 1 diapers. You take after big brother and have a long torso!

-At your 2 month check up today (where you got 5 shots - poor little girl!), you weighed 11.25 lbs and are 23 inches long. You are in the 90th percentile for length! Daddy and I wonder if you will stay tall.

-You smile all the time and we LOVE it! Your very favorite thing is to have people talk to you. You smile really big anytime people give you attention and smile at you. You smile like I did as a baby and it makes my heart happy to see that little trait of mine passed down to you.

-You still like riding in the car, although you are becoming less of a fan of getting in the carseat.

-You slept "through the night" (6.5 hours) for the first time at 7 weeks. You consistently sleep about 5-6 hours at night these days.

-You coo a lot - you love it when we talk to you. One of my very favorite things right now is to have a cooing conversation with you. You make the most animated little faces and expressions - it is adorable!

-Your eyes are still a very pretty blue. My friend Leslie just snapped this picture of you last week at exactly 8 weeks and you can tell how blue your eyes are. I love this picture SO much. It's one of my very favorite pictures ever. I will treasure it always.

-My attempt to get you on a 7-10-1-4 eating schedule worked well. You usually wake from sleeping around that time to let me know it's time to eat! You have dropped the 1 AM feed and the 4 AM feed usually gets pushed back a tad. Next, we''ll be working on dropping the 4 AM feed altogether.

-You have decided that you love the Avent classic pacifiers. You will take other paci's but the Avent ones are the only ones that you seem to keep in your mouth.

-You are starting to pay more attention to Cayden and you like it when he pays attention to you.

-You had your first pedicure experience over the last month. I met up with Aunt Rissa and we got pedicures - you slept through the experience. My heart smiles thinking about the day that we can do that together!

-You have amazing head control and are already sitting up in the Bumbo. You are really strong!

-You are still such a mild mannered, happy baby who doesn't cry much. I am constantly grateful and praising the Lord for blessing me with such a sweet, sweet girl.

You are so deeply loved by daddy, Cayden, and myself. We love and cherish this time in life with you as a sweet baby.

Love,

Momma
