Creating a beautiful life together!

Wednesday, August 26, 2009


Just an update...Jane is now two months old. She had her pediatrician's appointment on Monday, and she now weighs 10 lbs. 14 oz. and is 23.5 inches long! So, now she is up to the 50th percentile for weight and around the 75th for length. Not that that really matters, but I though I'd share. She sleeps for about six hours at night, then two or three more, then a couple more (If I am lucky, which today I am). I am still trying to figure out how to "put her down" for a nap, instead of letting her fall asleep whenever and whereever and for however long. But, that will come, and then maybe I will be more productive. I have many projects that I am working on, including some freelance writing, selling Juice Plus for Doug's office, working with a friend from our ward on a movie script and production group (editing and grantwriting and such), as well as sqeezing in my own fun things like quilting. It's a little overwhelming at times. We are getting there.


Jane makes the most wonderful faces! She smiles and pouts and gets excited (I can't quite get that on camera because she does it when she is just about to eat), and well, lots of other faces! She is starting to interact more, and that has been a lot of fun.

Nothing like a sweet, calm baby to make you happy, huh?

Not for the faint of heart

So, Jane has already had some diaper blow-outs. This one happened about three weeks ago, but it has by far been the most, um, spectacular. She was sitting in her bouncy chair on the table while we were eating dinner, and we watched it spread...
What the onesie revealed...
And right into the bath she went...
And she was not very happy afterwards...

I can (almost) hold my head up!

When someone is holding Jane over their shoulder, she keeps her head up! She can hold it up pretty well other times, but this is when she does it the best. Today when I put her on her tummy she pushed herself up on her forearms and turned her head from side to side. She is growing up too fast!

One of our nice baby gifts was this Ergobaby carrier. It works as a front carrier, a back carrier, and even a hip carrier. Right now Jane sits facing sideways with some extra padding because she is small, but soon she will face toward mommy or daddy with her legs out the side. It is really great for walking around stores (and for going on walks outside, but we don't do that in summer around here because we don't want to melt). I highly recommend it!

PS - Isn't my hair getting long? I'm pretty sick of it, but if enough people tell me it looks good, I'll keep growing it out. :)
