Anne Elizabeth is 2 months old!

I read something on Pinterest a few weeks ago that really touched me. It's kind of corny, but I love it..."Babies smile in their sleep because they're listening to the whispers of angels." LOVE!! She has the most beautiful smile. In the past week she has started smiling more often when she sees us. I live for those! Also, she grins when you put her in front of a mirror. Talk about cuteness overload!

Her sweet's almost TOO MUCH!!! I kiss and squeeze those soft cheeks 100x a day. Yum.

Audrey at 2 months:

Month 2 was rough. Inconsistent sleep and growth spurts made for a very tired momma.

At around 6 weeks she had pretty bad acne (red bumps AND yellow flakes on her eyebrows and ears.) She also had redness in both eyes. The pediatrician gave us cortisone and eye ointment..she was cleared up within 2 days. At that appointment she weighed 10 lbs 1 ounce. At her 2 month wellness check she weighed 11 lbs 2 ounces and was 22 inches tall. She's wearing size 0-3 clothes and size 1 diapers.

She's sleeping in her crib at night. Chris does her late feeding (10-11 pm) and she sleeps until 1-2 am. I put her back in bed when she falls asleep. She wakes again around 4-5 to eat and I just sleep with her on the couch until she's ready to eat again between 7-8. I really wish she'd drop a feeding soon!!

She's found her fist and I always find her sucking on it when she wakes from her naps (slurp, slurp!) She still spits up a lot and so the pedi prescribed Zantac which she takes 3x a day. She's so alert and will turn to follow people/objects as they go by. She has great head control and I just love watching her as she looks around :)

I hang out on my Boppy lounger a lot!

I really love being in Mom's arms :)

Abigail is an awesome sister! When I cry she is the first to give me a paci, bounce me in the bouncer, or get a toy. She loves me so much!

Mom gets jealous that I get to catch up on my sleep during the day! But she loves to cuddle with me anyways!

Both of my sisters think I'm sooo funny and interesting!

They like to get all up in my business!

Annie is getting so big, so quickly. She's reminded me of why having a newborn is so hard, yet so amazing at the same time. I am so thankful that she is a thriving, beautiful little lady!
