Happy 2 Months!

2 months old and growing! Parker is now 12lb 3oz (75th percentile) and 23 1/2 inches long (90th percentile). I think she is going to be tall like her Mommy and Daddy!

Parker has changed a lot this past month. She has always had a strong neck, but she is really showing off now! She will use every chance she gets to move her neck around--when she's on her tummy, when she's laying tummy-to-tummy on me or Kris, when we're walking with her...it's great to see her getting more neck control! It's not to the point yet where we can carry her without supporting her neck but we're getting there!

Parker also loves standing and sitting up now (with our assistance!) and looking all around. She especially enjoys pictures on shirts like Rufus the Bobcat. I think we have an OU girl on our hands!

Parker's enjoying toys that light up and make noise which is a lot of fun. She has also learned a new trick of how to put herself to sleep! She doesn't do this often, but a few times she has just fallen asleep on her own. Usually Kris and I have to soothe her to sleep--typically by running around the house with her in our arms, great workout by the way :)-- but every once in a while she will be hanging out in her swing or rock-n-play and then she's asleep! And on the subject of sleep, she is now sleeping through the night every night! But perhaps the greatest change this month has been the baby smiles and coos. She's smiling and talking all the time! It just melts my heart!

  1. She is getting so big! I love that beautiful little smile also! So cute. I wish we lived closer so she and Makenna could hang out...and we could too! :o)
