2 Months

Reese is two months old and I cannot believe how much she is changing! Her two month check up went great. She is weighing 9 lbs. 9 oz. (25%) and is 22 3/4 inches tall (75%)....as of now she is definitely taking after Nate. The doctor said everything is looking great and we can let her sleep through the night now (he did not want us to until she was two months because she was so skinny for awhile). I told Reese that she can start sleeping through the night, but last night she woke up at 3:30, but then went back to sleep until 7:30 after I fed her...I am hoping it won't take too long for her to figure it out =).  She is smiling more and more and trying to talk all the time. She is becoming more content with hanging out and just watching everything that is going on around her. She has recently started grasping things, like my hair, and becoming more interactive with everyone and her brothers (Megatron and Kratos (she absolutely adores them).

Reese and I went on our first road trip to visit my dad. It was a short visit, but she did great. I am hoping for another great road trip in a few weeks when Reese and I head over to Puyallup to see family and friends. Here are a few pictures of Reese in the last couple of weeks!

Reese is trying really hard to not wear newborn clothes all the time (0-3 month outfit =))

6 weeks!

Reese is 6 weeks old today and I had my 6 week checkup. Reese is getting to be quite the ham, she loves to smile and kick her legs while she is having tummy time, laying and "playing" with her toys, and being changed.  She is cooing more and more and the past couple days has developed a high pitch squeal....not sure what that is all about (and not sure if I like it =).  She is still a great sleeper at night and this week we officially started the tough love during the day...which means not so much cuddling with me and Nate and taking naps in her crib. So far so good, most of her naps are in her crib, but there are the occasional naps in her cradle, swing, or floor.  Reese is still a tiny little peanut. It turns out that she was a lazy eater so I can no longer breastfeed because the Dr. wanted to keep track of how much milk she was actually getting. So with me pumping and supplementing she has finally reached 8 lbs. on Friday.....so thank goodness we do not have to go back until her 2 month check up.

My 6 week check up went great. I was cleared to start working out again (already have an appointment with my trainer on Monday =)). I am back to my prepregnancy weight, but my clothes do not fit quite like I want them too, so I told my trainer I want to be HOT by fall, but HOTTER by winter =)....we shall see. I am feeling great and I think I am starting to get this whole parent thing down. I am enjoying every minute of it.

Here are a few pictures....and a video (I finally captured her rolling over!)

Newborn Pictures

Here are Reese's newborn pictures. My friend Amy did an amazing job. Little Miss Reese was quite the little crab pot on this day. These were taken when she was 8 days old.
