This Easter was spent at Gammie & Gampie's church with your daddy's family and your Tone-tone! It was fabulous! You slept through the entire service in tone-tone's lap :)
I am so glad we took family pictures BEFORE church because as soon as the service was over we walked in to the foyer at church to talk to emily & grant and you pottied OUT of your diaper all over your dress :))...Mommy got to change her first diaper at church with Tone-tone's help!
what???? TWO MONTHS?..goodness gracious, Mills slow it down, sister!
As if you don't already know, you are the BIGGEST blessing to us (other than our salvation & finding each other)!
Millie, I have always loved babies, but the love I have for you is so unimaginable! I love you so much it may be unhealthy :P!
At two months old you are a GROWING machine!!
-you grunt-- A LOT!
-you can hold your head up! (sad and glad all at the same time)
-you smile and giggle constantly. You are seriously the happiest baby!
-you are amazed with ceiling fans & different lights
-you recognize my voice & your daddy's voice
-you follow my voice & some objects with your eyes
-you make a very interesting face when I make a snorting sound like a piggy :)
-you are beginning to discover your legs/feet... meaning you raise them up a lot more and I think you are SO close to grabbing your feet
-you LOVE your piano play mat. You lay there for so long giggling, cooing, and cackling
-you've discovered the mobile on your swing ... you watch it, smile, and giggle at it
-you wake up SO happy around 6 am each morning & "talk" to us. It's my favorite time of day. We stare at you in amazement every single morning!
-you poop/poot SO loudly :))
-it never fails.. every time I change your pee diaper you poop :)
-you have started sleeping longer stretches of time at night. I won't type how long because I don't want to jinx it ;)
-you still love to eat!
-you love being in the car... you watch yourself in your mirror and laugh the whole time!
-you looove to kick while you are in your car seat ;)
-like most babies you do NOT like the sun in your eyes.. fussy wussy
-you're growing out of your 0-3 month clothes (mainly shirts)
-I think you are one of the happiest babies I have every been around!
It's funny how much easier it was to take this month's picture than last!!
You had your two month check up on Monday! You had started getting a rash or what I wanted to believe was baby acne two weeks ago. I tried to hold out on going to the doctor until your appointment but it just kept getting worse! So, daddy had the afternoon off on Friday and we took you. I got super annoyed because we waited for over an hour only for the doctor to talk to us for less than 2 minutes to say "oh yea baby acne wash her face with a mild face wash and it should go away soon"... sooo we did that over the weekend and no change. As soon as Dr. Benafield walked in the room on monday she said "oh no.. miss millie has a rash" GERR so I explained to her what happened friday and she said it's definitely not baby acne and gave us a prescription cream. We've been using it for 2 1/2 days and your face already looks AMAZINGLY better!!!! woo hoo! It clearly wasn't bothering you or I would have taken you in so much soon, but I'm glad it's gone because it was making me sad!
You now weigh 11.10 pounds and are 23 inches long!!! You can still wear 0-3 mo clothes, but the 0-3 mo onesies/sleepers are too short! You are filling out 3-6 mo pants (length-wise)..:)
I go back to work in a week and a half. I can't type much about it because I've already started to get a little anxiety over it. I will definitely be happy to be back to see all my co-workers, my students, and to just get out for a little while, but geeee golly when I look at you and think about it I can't help but cry thinking of not seeing you every second of every day! UGHHH.. and that's all I can type right now ;)
Here are some of our other favorite pictures from month 2!
thank you, Jesus for this precious and most beautiful gift!! We love you, Mills!!!
