Milestones:
  Sitting unassisted.  Eating solids. Responds to her name. Shows curiosity about things and tries to get things that are out of reach. When standing, supports weight on legs and bounces.

Sitting up and playing with toys

Hates: Not a fan of changing clothes right now, but other than that she's pretty easy going!

Food:  She eats 5-6oz, every 3-4 hours.  She eats solids 1-2 times a day and LOVES them! Hated the mac and cheese, but has loved everything else we've tried.

Looking Forward To: Thanksgiving, and Christmas :) and dreaming of the day she starts sleeping through the night!

Halloween - 2017


I love Halloween! This year we had Cinderella (and her carriage) and a dinosaur! This was the first year that we let Grant choose his own costume. I was pretty surprised when he chose a dinosaur! I figured he'd choose one of the PJ Masks or Paw Patrol.

We only got a couple pictures of Grant. He was a blur most of the day/night. He was running around non stop growling like a dinosaur.  The fact that we were able to get one decent picture was a miracle.

Leah isn't mobile yet, so she was easier :)


My husband decided to get creative and turn our Radio Flyer wagon into Cinderella's carriage. This worked out great since Leah is only 6 months and has to be pushed around.



I think she was laughing at Grant here. She thinks he is hilarious!


Love this shot! My husband takes the best pictures.


Her smiles make up for all of the exhaustion :)


I love this picture.  The look Leah is giving her big brother cracks me up. I can totally see them in about 12 years and her being annoyed and exasperated with him - haha.

Leah - 5 Months



Eye Color: Dark Blue/Grey

Clothes:
  6M-9M

Diapers:
 
3
 
Milestones:
  Laughing!! Almost sitting unassisted.  Eating solids.

Best Moment(s) This Month: She laughed!! Grant was talking to her while I was washing bottles and I heard her start laughing. I was able to catch it on camera :)


Loves:
Bottles
Sitting up (Loves the Sit Me Up!)
Looking at her brother
When we talk to her - she smiles SO BIG when we talk to her


Favorite Toys: She's starting to bat and grab the toys on her little activity gym, but that's the only interest in toys so far.

Hates: She doesn't really HATE much of anything. She's such an easy baby.  If she is full and well rested, she is a happy camper for the most part.  Lately she does get bored and doesn't like it when we leave her alone. She likes a lot of attention and face to face talking right now.


Food:  She eats 4oz, every 2-3 hours.  She started on solids last week.

Looking Forward To: Sitting completely unassisted. Crawling. Babbling. Her Halloween costume :)

Leah - 2 Months



Eye Color: Dark Blue/Grey

Clothes:
  3M

Diapers:
1
 
Milestones:
  She started social smiling!! I LOVE it when they start smiling! She smiles so easily too.


Best Moment(s) This Month:  We've had a couple of nights where she only wakes up once. She's even had a few 7 hour sleep stretches!  And the SMILES!

Loves:
Sleeping
Eating
Being Swaddled
Rocking
Looking at our faces
Her Pacifier!

Favorite Toys: She's started to like the Mamaroo swing. Grant hated it, so I'm happy that it's getting some use.  She can't grab toys yet, but she does like to look at black and white patterns.


Hates:
Taking a bath
Diaper changes

Food:  She eats 3oz, every 2 hours.  I am ready for her to start spacing it out. I tried feeding her 4oz every bottle to see if she'd go longer, but it just ended up making her eat a ton more and spit up. 


Looking Forward To: She isn't cooing much yet so I am looking forward to hearing her "talk" and play with Grant.  He loves to "tickle" her and talk to her and even lays down next to her on her play mat. It's the cutest!
