Sadie is Two Months Old!

Sadie turned 2 months old a little over a week ago, and I actually took her picture and wrote this post then; however, I wanted to get all of her birth story up before I posted this :)

My goodness, how can two months come and go so very quickly??!!

What is Sadie up to these days?
  • She weighs 10 lb 3 oz, and is 23 inches long.  
  • She is in size 1 diapers.
  • She can still wear a couple of newborn sleepers but will be out of those within a week.  All other clothes are 0-3 months.
  • Her eye color is still up for debate - we're holding out for them to stay blue, but some days they look brown or green.
  • Her hair is still dark, but seems to be lightening up a bit.  
  • She eats 4 ounces or nurses 15-20 minutes every 3-4 hours during the day.
  • She is sleeping wonderfully at night - sleeping 5-8 hour stretches!!!  We are SO proud and thankful for that!   
  • She has started to smile on purpose, and coo.  The most precious thing EVER!  
  • When she wakes up in the mornings, she has been waking up and just playing in her bed - kicking and cooing.  When I go to get her up, she smiles the biggest grin and starts kicking faster when I say "Good morning, baby girl!"  Oh, it just makes my heart feel like it's going to BURST!                                  
Sadie is a paci girl...oh how she loves it!  She was extremely attached to her Wubbanub, but now she just wants a regular pacifier.
She also loves to play on her activity mat!  She will kick, and hit the animals with her hands until she falls asleep.  She also likes to look at herself in the mirror on top, and coo.  Sooo sweet!
Sadie has had several firsts this month.  After not being able to take her out for at least 6 weeks, we were super excited to take her to church for her first Sunday! :)
She also took her first real bath this month.  She absolutely LOVES baths...she usually cries when it's over!
Sadie got to experience her first Football Saturday, and hear WAR EAGLE a few times! :)
It's been a fun month to start to see Sadie's little personality develop.  So far she is very laid back, and such a sweet baby! :)

It's hard to believe how much she has already changed in a month!  
We are so in love with Sadie Hope!  Someone asked the other day if I loved every minute, and I can honestly say a resounding YES!  What a sweet, special blessing she is!
