Two Months Old!

We continued to work on Elle's room this week and now all we have to do is add Elle's newborn pictures (once we get them)! We left the room the color we had originally painted it when it was an office and had always said we would just add a stripe to make if more masculine or feminine. So, we added a pink and brown stripe around the room.

David told me after we painted every room in the house (a different color) that he was not painting again for 10 years! Well, he now says that he will NEVER paint lines again! It turned out so great, and really makes the room look girlie...but not too girlie! :)

We also added some shelves to display special gifts, David's teddy bear as a child and my Peter Rabbit tea set. The room feels so cozy, I love it!

Elle has really great head control and always wants to sit up to see what is going on, so I decided we would try the Bumbo. Just like tummy time, she can do it for a short amount of time and then gets tired.

Paisley and Elle were having a staring contest! I think Paisley won....

Is that a wig? Yes I was asked that question again this week! Seriously who would put a wig on a two month old?!?!?

I do have to say we have lots of fun with her hair after bath time! Look at that Afro! Amazingly, the girl never has a bad hair day, you would think she would wake up with major bed head....Nope. Lucky girl!

Elle had her two month check up Friday. She is weighing in at 10lb. 15oz and 21 3/4 inches long. She finally weighs more than David at birth! I think she carries about 1/2 the weight in her cheeks!!

She continues to be average -- 50percentile for height and weight and between 25-50 percentile for head circumference. Looking good baby girl!

The two month check up means, 3 shots...urgh! David was giving her a pep talk before the adorable.

Poor Elle, SCREAMED when she got her shots! She was screaming so hard that no sound was coming out, then a huge gasp for air and an enormous wail!!! I think it hurt David and I just as much, I had tears in my eyes and David decided he will never go to a doctor appointment again when she needs shots.

Look at those poor little legs with band aids...she was a very sleepy girl on Saturday!

I am going for the "Mother of the Year" award....Elle made her first stop at Mogies for "Staff Development" (drinks after school hours). Grandma Jean (my teaching partner) was helping show how wonderful of a mother I am! :)

Elle attended her second wedding on Saturday, our wonderful hair stylist Marie married her best friend Catlin!

Elle danced her first dance with mommy and daddy.

Elle got lots of snuggles in with Auntie Julie!

Happy two month birthday Elle Maire! We are so lucky to have such a beautiful daughter!! Love you baby girl!
