Friday Five {Vol. 41}


Here are five things that made me smile this week.

1. Friday – Things have been a bit crazy at work the last few weeks and I’ve been putting in extra hours at home to try and keep up. I’m glad the weekend is here!

2. Bubbles – Henry finally learned how to blow bubbles!  He was so proud of himself and wanted to try every single  wand.  When he got tired of blowing bubbles we added the next best thing……water!Friday Five {Vol. 41} -

4. Green Grass – I can’t resist going barefoot in the cool, soft, green grass.  The feeling instantly brings back memories of summer as a child.Friday Five {Vol. 41} -

Lily - Two Months -


At two months you……

  • Are long and skinny (23″ long (75th percentile), 10 lbs 1 oz (20th percentile), 15″ head circumference (47th percentile).
  • Are wearing 0-3 month shirts and newborn pants.
  • Have dark hair and dark grey eyes with a little bit of brown in the center.
  • Look almost exactly like your brother did at this age.
  • Still have a flat spot on the left side of your head but it is starting to get better.
  • Are eating every 3 hrs during the day with a little cluster feeding in the evening.
  • Love to be swaddled and will pull your hands up by your face.
  • Are sleeping through the night (at least 7 hrs) and are still pretty sleepy during the day.
  • Love bath time!
  • Are smiling and cooing at everyone.
  • Do a pretty good job of lifting your head well while laying on your tummy and holding your head up while sitting up.
  • Had two weeks in the middle of the month where you were fussy every evening from 6:00-10:00.  I am thankful that you would calm down if I held you in the baby carrier and that it only lasted two weeks.
