2 Months Old

Today Taryn is 2 months old. You know what that means? Yup, a photo shoot!! :) Here are a few from this morning. Click on them to see them a bit bigger.

Look at that tummy and those cheeks!! LOL.

And the smile I finally caught on camera.At 2 months, Taryn:
  • weighs about 12.5 lbs and is about 23.5" long
  • sleeps about 5 hours through the night (lucky mommy!)
  • is giving smiles, especially after eating and changing
  • tells 'stories', usually the best 'conversations' are on the change table. Now can anyone tell me what a-goo means??
  • can hold her head up pretty steady
  • loves to stand up (obviously with some help). We call it the up-down game!
  • likes to be propped up in the corner of the couch so she can see whats going on
There is probably more -I just cant think of them at the moment. Eventually I plan on scrapbooking each monthly update in a book for her.

We went to the lake for a day this week and Daddy took her into the lake (just her toes!). She didnt like how cold it was and promptly pulled her knees to her chest. I dont blame her! It was pretty chilly!

That's all for now! I have lots more pictures - I will try and post more through the week. We have another trip to the lake planned on Monday with a friend who hasnt seen Taryn yet. Should be fun!

hey, Melissa!! I guess I've been hiding under a rock (in reality, probably in the classroom is a better way to describe it!) and missed the whole news of Taryn's arrival. Congratulations!!!! She is beautiful and growing so much already. It sounds like you are adjusting to motherhood and loving every minute of it. And enjoy your new home - perfect to have a new place with a new baby. I'll be back (sooner, I promise!).

I love Wendy's definition of "a-goo".....too funny but of course completely accurate ;)
