2 Months Old

So I'm really throwing Mama for a loop with these monthly pictures because I was born on the 31st. There aren't 31 days in every month! Oh my! She has decided to take pictures on the last day of each month and complete the survey below. Enjoy!

Height: 24 1/2 inches (that was Mama's attempt to measure like they do at the doctor's office. I have my official appointment on Tuesday)
Weight: 14 lbs.(again, this is according to our not so accurate scale. The official weight along with the percentile from the doctor will be reported soon.)
Sleeping Patterns: I stay awake longer and longer now. I'll fall asleep in the morning if Mama goes shopping or on an errand. That car seat is comfy. In the evenings I like to lay by myself on the chair downstairs (Mama puts pillows around me just in case I decide to try to roll over) and fall asleep around dinner time. I'll sleep from 6:00ish to 9:00ish. Then Mama nurses me around 10:00 and I'll sleep anywhere from 3 - 5 hours then. Mama loves it when it's a 4 hour or 5 hour stretch!
At night time I sleep for 4-5 hour stretches.
Eating Habits: Nursing every 2-3 hours (normally around 3 hour stretches). At night time I can go longer stretches between 4-5 hours. 
New Foods I liked: Nothing new for a while....just enjoying Mama's milk.
New Discoveries I made: I love my play mat. I'll lay there and listen to the music and kick my legs. I've even started making cooing sounds. Here are some videos of me on my play mat that Mama took a few days ago....




I also tried my first bottle. I've had 3 so far just so that I could get used to it when Mama goes back to work soon. Sniff! Sniff!
My accomplishments: I've been smiling more and more! I've also started making more cooing sounds.
Places I went: We sure did visit the post office a lot this month (sending birth announcements, Thank You cards, packages, etc.), I went to the Mehall's for the first time (Ayla loves playing with her BFF, Aubrey), we enjoyed the nice weather at the White Water Center and I also got to experience COLD snowy weather in our backyard for a few minutes. Today we ventured to Ikea...just Mama, Ayla and me. That was a brave Mama!
Special Memories: Still enjoying all of the snuggle time with Daddy, Mama, and Ayla (and of course anybody else who comes to visit). I also experienced my first snow.


Here are the "photo shoot" pictures for 2 months old!! Ayla was home today to join in on the fun!















Check out those chins! HeeHee!




Mama also had a little photo shoot just for Oma Waltraud and Opa Richard....they should be expecting some mail with these pictures soon! Here's a little peek....




Silly Ayla.

While we are at it adding tons of pictures...here are some of Mama's recent "phone favorites"...

Weekend Fun

We had a fun family weekend. Yesterday we all went to the Whitewater Center to enjoy the nice weather and last night we went to dinner at Chili's. We even got dessert to share! Yummy!
This morning I went to get my hair cut. Although I have gotten my hair cut in the past, this was my first time sitting in a chair at a hair cutting salon. This was a special place just for kids. We went to a place called "Snip Its" in Birkdale. Mama took lots of pictures and even a video. Here are lots of pictures to enjoy....
I took my baby doll and stroller to be
just like Mama.
Chubber cheeks slept the whole time. :-)
Crossing over the bridge.
Mama put me on this big rock for this
cool picture.
I climbed the kid rock climbing wall.
We ate lunch at the Whitewater Center.
Dinner at Chili's.
Check out that dessert!
Here are pictures from today's hair cut....

Before back.
Check out that random spot of super
long hair!

I did a puzzle with Daddy while we waited.

Ohh! I wasn't so sure about this hair
cut thing!

Guess who slept again???

I was a little shy at first.


I became braver during the hair cut.

Checking myself out in the mirror.


After.
I even got a pretty braid and ribbon
put in my hair.

After back.
Woah! What a difference.

So after my hair cut, I got to put this card into a special machine that gave me a treat. It was pretty neat!

Random phone pictures from this weekend....
