in the craziness that has been the last three weeks, i forgot to put up the pictures we took of Maelle on her 8 week birthday. or whatever you are supposed to call that...
we went to the doctor and had our big appointment - shots and everything. three of them. she was so mad. :) but handeled it like a champ!
no crying after the fact.
just happy smiles!
so we took a few pictures.
this time she was a little bit interested in the sign. :) she didn't mess with it at the one moth pictures.
then she got a little angry.
so we changed locations. and we got happy again.
at 2 months, Maelle, you are a very happy girl. all your people at day care are surprised how happy you are. they keep asking, "does maelle ever cry? she's so happy."
we are loving watching your personality develop. you love to play and grab at things. and are starting to bring everything you touch to your mouth. you smile at us all the time, just begging someone to play with you and snuggle you. you are quite happy to cuddle all the time.
you are also starting to put on the chunk, and we think it makes you so cute! at the doctor they weighed you in at 12 pounds 10 ounces.
they had to measure you twice at the doctor because they were surprised at how much you had grown. you are now 1 foot 11 inches tall. you grew 2.5 inches since your last appointment. which explains why you are already wearing 3 to 6 month clothes. you are just too tall for all your other stuff.
you have finally gotten over your bottle hatred. there for a couple weeks you just screamed at the top of your quite powerful lungs (we know they are there and are thankful you don't use them very often) every time we gave you a bottle. now however, you chug those babies down as fast as you can and are happy as a clam.
you travel and change and adjust to new things so very well. you go out to eat and are happy. you go to basketball games that are so loud and love them! you are a flexile little girl.
you are still sleeping like a rockstar - or maybe not like a rockstar. :) you go to bed around 8:45 and sleep until we wake you up at 6:30 for school. on the weekends you seem to sleep all the way until 8:00. we love that you sleep in!
here you are at one month.
and two months.
we are so thankful that you joined our family on December 31!
