2 Months Old

Dear Noel,

Every day I grow to love you more and more. I never really understood how one's love could be equally divided between their children, but after having you I've begun to understand it better. And I'm sure I will continue to learn about it, but every day I look at you and marvel that God saw fit to give me not just one beautiful daughter, but two. You are so sweet and are a very good baby. You started to coo at us this month, and often when I'm nursing you you'll just look up at me, pull off, and give a great big smile and a few coos before going back to your meal. You look almost exactly like Lane did when she was your age, but I have to say that so far you are less high-maintenance than she was! You are a pretty good sleeper, and while we're still working out the kinks in your sleeping schedule, overall you're doing very well.

Hanging out on the play mat, looking at "the guys."

I took you to the doctor on Monday for a check-up, and I have to say that you, my darling girl, must be a good eater. You grew another 5 centimeters, putting you at 22 inches long, and you gained another kilogram to put you up to 10.6 pounds. You've almost doubled your birthweight in just two months! You have got the cutest rolls on your thighs, and I absolutely love them. Your sister was always so skinny and didn't have any rolls to her, so I love yours! I'm sure you'll grow out of them, so don't worry...babies are supposed to be roly-poly! You are funny about tummy time, don't really love it, but neither do you hate it. You just lay there on your tummy and don't fuss, don't try to lift up your head, don't really try to do anything most of the time. You're just content to lay there and occasionally look up, which you're pretty good at when you actually do it!

I love you, my baby girl, and I can't wait to see what future months have in store for us!


You're content to just hang out in the boppy, looking around.

I love your cheeks!

This is how you spend a lot of your awake-time...hanging out in Lane's room with us while we play! We're getting you in on the action as much as we can!

My smiley girl.


  1. She is so beautiful! How is her sleeping going? It is a bummer that the waking her up and feeding her again before you go to sleep didn't work. You are doing a great job:)

    1. We're still working on it...I'm trying a dream feed for 10-14 days to see if her internal clock will kind of reset itself. If not...I'm also working on moving her schedule later so she doesn't go to bed until 7:30 or so, so 8-9 hours from 7:30 wouldn't be bad!

  2. I LOVE the "made in Turkey" shirt :-)

    1. Thanks! I love it, too! It's too bad it's too cold for her to just wear it alone!

  3. Two months, already? It is join by so fast. I agree with Sarah, that onsie is just too cute!
