Aubree's First Two Months

Phew! It's been a while!!! I think its about time for an update on little Miss Aubree. Jon and I are completely in love with our sweet little girl and we can't even begin to express how much fun we have had these last few months! The first four weeks or so were ROUGH! Once we found out that she had a milk allergy and we switched her to formula she has been a very happy baby! She still have a little attitude and will let you know when she doesn't get her way, but the formula has really helped and we are so happy she's not in pain anymore. Here are a few highlights from Aubree's first two months (with a few pictures to follow):

-At her 2 month checkup she weighed 11 lbs, 12 ounces (64th percentile) and was 22 inches long (34th percentile). Poor thing is probably going to take after her mommy in the height area!

-She loves playing on her playmat and looking at herself in mirrors. She also likes anything that lights up and plays music.

-She initiated me into the "mommy club" when she POOPED all over my face a few weeks ago. It's a great story now, but not so fun at the time.

-She smiled her first BIG smile on May 2nd and she hasn't stopped since.

-She loves sitting on your lap and staring at you. She smiles, coos, and screams out loud when she gets excited.

-At first, she hated her baths, but once we took her out of the infant hammock and put her down in the water she LOVES it!

-She has the most gorgeous big, brown eyes, chubby little cheeks, and tons of hair!

-SHE SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT! :) She sleeps in her nap nanny which has been a life saver! It helps tremendously with her reflux.

-She is very active and kicks her legs constantly. Her pediatrician said you usually see that more in boys, ha! She told us to expect her gross motor skills (walking, crawling, etc.) to come before her verbal.

-While she is eating, she stares up at you with those pretty it!

-She is getting really good at holding her head up for longer periods of time.

-She is VERY hot natured (like her daddy). She is almost always hot and kicks her blanket off her legs at night.

-She loves car rides as long as you're moving. She would prefer we not stop at lights and stop signs :)

-We don't go anywhere without the PACI! If she spits it out or it falls on the floor we are in trouble! (cue dramatic music and me in slow motion diving for the falling pacifier.

-She enjoys shopping with mommy and will sit in the cart and look around at everyone.

-We keep going back and forth on who she looks like..some people say me while others think Jon.

-She usually takes a good morning nap (a few hours) and then several smaller cat naps in the afternoon.

-She likes being read to. We usually read a few books during the day and then a few at bedtime.

-She hates tummy time or being held on her belly. We have been trying to come up with other creative ways for her to strengthen her neck muscles :)

-My favorite time of the day is when her Daddy comes home! She knows his voice and as soon as she sees him, her eyes get HUGE and she gets the biggest smile on her face. She usually screams out and starts waving her arms around. It just melts my heart! Can we say "Daddy's Girl!"

We are head over heals in love with this sweet baby girl and we feel so blessed that God made her ours! Here are a few pictures from Aubree's first few months:

The shirt says it all!
