2 months

My little baby girl is 2 months old.
I still can't believe I have a baby let alone that she is growing up so fast.

A lot has happened since Hadley has come into our lives.
All for the good, of course.

But I wont lie, it has been difficult trying to get back into the swing of things.

I went back to work about 3 weeks ago.
It was rough.
I almost cried the first day.

I only work part time, so 4 hrs a day in nothing but I find myself looking at all the pictures of my sweet babe on my phone and counting down the minutes until I get to see her. 

Even though I am sleep deprived, smell like spit up most of the time, hardly ever get ready anymore..she is by far the best thing that has ever happened.

Being a mother is A M A Z I N G!

2 month stats:
weight: 11 pounds 11 ounces
height: 23 inches long

some little things about Miss H in the past month

-Hates being swaddled
-Can roll over on her sides and likes to sleep on her side (just like her mama)
-Smiles, Laughs, and "talks" back to us when we talk to her
-She is more awake/alert
-Can now follow us with her eyes when we move in front of her
-Eats like a champ!
-Went to church for the first time but cried & cried...turns out her little tights were too tight on her belly. As soon as they came off she was as happy as could be.
-Newborns clothes and diapers no longer fit (as stated above)...and haven't for about 3-4 weeks now.
-Has been wearing 3 month clothing since about 6-7 weeks.
-Loves her swing, bouncer and play mat
-Loves her binki and cant stay asleep very long without it
-farts, farts, farts (just like her daddy)
-Have had quite a few blow outs
-She wiggles and kicks non stop
-Pretty good at holding her head up
-Snores when sleeping
-Her hair is getting so long and changing colors
-Went on her first road trip to Price for Thanksgiving where she met her cousins, aunt, uncles, great grandma, great aunts/uncles for the first time
-Loves to cuddle
-Little more fussy than usual but pretty happy/content for the most part
-Constantly has her fingers wrapped around her thumbs in little fists
-Always has to have her hands by her face
-Just recently started sucking on her fists

It is kind of bittersweet.
I miss my little newborn babe but enjoy seeing her learn
and seeing her personality starting to develop.
I love the fact she can recognize Kyle and I.
I love that she gives me a huge gummy smile when she sees me.

She is my everything!
