Ava 2 Months

It's hard to believe that our sweet girl, Ava, is already 2 months old.  Time is flying by...before we know it she'll be graduating from high school! Ava changes so much every day and it is so fun to watch her learn new things.

I love her big smile!

Ava usually takes a tumble during our photo sessions

Her long legs are starting to fill out!

Look how big I am!

"Mom, are you finished yet?"

Ava rolled off the pillow and landed face first...didn't phase her one bit!

Look at how much you've grown in a month

 You continue to bring so much happiness to our lives! We wake up every morning to your grunting and a big smile across your face.  You are a very happy baby! You like to go with the flow whether we watch TV, have playtime on the floor, travel, lay on your boppy lounger, swing in your swing, or cuddle with your mommy and daddy, you are content! The only time you really fuss is when you are hungry.  Once I figured out that you needed 5-6 ounces every 3-4 hours, instead of 4 ounces, all was well in your world again!

 2 month check up:

Length: 23 inches- 74%
Weight: 12 pounds- 78%
Head circumference: 39.8 inches- 76%

You gained over 2 pounds in 2 1/2 weeks. You are a growing girl! Dr. Shults says you look perfect. You took your 2 month immunizations like a champ. You cried for about 15 seconds and then you fell asleep in my arms! You didn't have any negative side effects from the shots other than being extra sleepy for aabout 24 hours.

You are still a good eater, taking 5-6 ounces of formula every 3-4 hours.  Most nights you sleep 6-7 hours.  If we could just adjust the 4 a.m. wake up time, sleeping for both of us would be perfect! I do love your early morning feeding, just you and me!  After you eat, I change your diaper, swaddle you back up, kiss your forhead then lay you back down! You never whine, just grunt and coo until you fall back asleep!


Sticking your tongue out
Tooting loud (a lot)
Standing on mommy and daddy's lap- your legs are so strong!
Watching TV
Listening to music
Being superswaddled
Riding in your carseat (most of the time)
Sitting up and looking around the room


Being in a dirty diaper (we change your diaper at least 25 times a day)
Lying down when awake
 Being startled

You have become so much more attentive over the last few weeks. You always want to sit up and see what is going on in the room. You tend to fight sleep when a lot is going your mom, you don't want to miss a thing! Your smile makes my heart melt and you continue to amaze your daddy and me every day!  We love you so much!

 I love baths!
