Pretty in Pink

This morning we went to church and I was determined to find something in Caroline's closet that would fit. I am ready to see her in something other than a onesie and pants. She is so precious! I can't stand it!!

Caroline, you have SO MANY adorable outfits to wear but you're just too tiny for them right now. Poor thing, I put you in two outfits before I found one that somewhat fit. You looked like such a big girl.

Look at that smile! I think you liked being dressed up for a change too.

Grandma and I agree that pink is your color.
  • On another note, it's quite sad how far behind I am on blogging. I have a TON of pictures to post and I'm determined to get them uploaded soon. Caroline is sleeping for longer stretches of time so I'm hoping I'll be less tired and much better at keeping up with things. It makes me feel good when someone mentions that I haven't posted anything in a while. It's nice to know that I'm not just talking to a wall and that friends and family are genuinely interested in knowing what our little squirt is up to. Thank you all for keeping up with us!

Happy Two Month Birthday Sweet Caroline!

Our precious baby turned two months last week. I can't believe how quickly time is flying by. Every one told me it would and they are so right. I wish I could push pause so I can keep my itty bitty baby for a while longer. We love her so very much!

Caroline, you are growing like a weed and you finally look and feel like a real baby. You have outgrown most of your preemie clothes and we have a hard time finding things to put you in because newborn clothes are still too big. We mostly keep you in sleepers and onesies right now. You have a closet packed full of the cutest summer dresses and outfits that I am dying to put you in. Hopefully you will be big enough to wear some of them before it's too cold. Being that we live in Texas I'll probably get the chance!

Here are a few of your two month mile stones...
  • You weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces and were 20 3/4 inches long at your two month check up. You've grown 4 inches in length since you were born. Your long and lean...our little string bean!
  • You have learned to smack your lips when you are hungry. It's the cutest thing!
  • You aren't too keen on tummy time but we make you do it for short bits of time anyways.
  • You can wear newborn diapers now even though they are a bit saggy.
  • You love to be rocked and sang to. My favorite songs to sing are, "You Are My Sunshine," and "Jesus Loves Me." You must love them both because you stop crying when you hear them.
  • Most nights you sleep 4-6 hours but last Friday you slept through the night. Woohoo!
  • You have grown eyelashes finally. Poor thing, you got your momma's blonde lashes so they can only been seen when the light hits them just right.
  • You are starting to focus on things with your eyes. You love lamps and during the day you love to stare at the blinds when the sun is shining through.
  • You love when mommy makes clicking sounds with her mouth. You smile big when you see/hear them.
You are almost as big as your giraffe now.

I can't imagine life with out you and I am so proud to be your mommy! Happy two months my sweet girl.
