Happy Halloween!

We are having a fangtastic time on this boo-tiful day! Well, it is raining right now...but it is going to be 73 degrees. Not all bad. No trick-or-treating for us. Peanut is still too little. But, we thought we would at least get into the "spirit" of things anyway!

Twelve Weeks

So, I am twelve weeks. Still tiny. Still mighty. I smile all the time these days. I love when my mom says "puh-dunk-a-dunk". I love when people slap there tongues around and make fools of themselves for me. I have slept through the night TWICE! I am pretty awesome.

Evolultion of a Smile

It starts with daddy. Add a rattle. Shake it. Make it pretend to explode like a bomb on the lips. Shake it some more. Make funny noises with your tongue. Shake it again. And, voila'! Smiles! Doesn't get much sweeter than this!

And so she grows...

A little over two months old now and our Peanut is starting to "fill out". She is actually getting some pudge to her cherub cheeks. I love it! She is starting to smile, although we are still waiting for it to happen more frequently...because that smile could melt an iceberg! She is cooing and squeaking like a mouse.


She is starting to push her chest up off the floor and lift her head up! Oh my! What a big strong girl! Mommy couldn't be more proud.


Mommy is also feeling so much better. And, I REALLY love being Finnley's mommy. It isn't always easy, but it is definitely worth it. I can't wait to see what each new day brings as far as her development is concerned. She is more awake and responsive all the time. Pretty cool to have the privilege of witnessing all that she accopmlishes along the way to becoming a big girl.

Two Months Old!

Two months old already. Hard to believe! Time goes by slowly, but it also seems to fly. Crazy!

Finnley is doing really well. She is now 9lbs 2 oz and is 22 inches long. She is in the 10th percentile for weight, but the 25th to 50th percentile for length. Long and lean. Nothing wrong with that.

Developmentally she is right on track. She is just starting to responsively smile, which is awesome. Cutest thing ever! She is great with her head and neck strength, and her legs are so powerful!

Reflux is still in our lives, but it isn't the end of the world. Finn spits up a full bottle up to once or twice a day, but every once in awhile we skip a day or! One day it will be gone for good, and we will all be celebrating!

She doesn't go back to the pediatrician again until 4 months. Sheesh! At that point we will talk about starting to introduce some "solid" foods. Can't wait for that! Messy but fun! Batman will be thrilled!

The pics are of our little "Rocker Chick" this morning. What a peanut!
