Two Months

My, how time flies!  It seems that Alice is changing more and more quickly every day.

She is so much more aware of her surroundings now than she was just a month ago.  She follows people around the room with her eyes, reaches for interesting objects with her arms, and even successfully grabs hold of some of them.

Of course she ignores the specially-designed-just-for-babies toys dangling in front of her and goes right for my purse instead.

Since the weather had been nicer for a few weeks (until these past few scorchers), we've been spending time outdoors a lot more.  

It's not quite as easy to get her to sleep on the go in the stroller anymore, since there are so many interesting things for her to look at all around her (not just the warning label on the inside of the infant carrier, which kept her engrossed for at least five weeks).

And, as if these photos weren't enough confirmation that she is growing. . .

. . . she gained 2.1 pounds and an inch in length since her last pediatrician appointment.  She is now 25 inches long and 13.4 pounds, putting her over the 100th percentile in height (which Matt insists is not mathematically possible, but since the pediatrician herself said it, I think my pride is justified) and somewhere between the 90th and 95th percentile for weight.   

Her little personality is coming out more and more each day, and it is so much fun to see the many different facial expressions she has already mastered.

Many of them are happy.....

And some of them are not so happy....

  2. Aah -- she's so cute! I love the pic with the sunglasses on her head -- she looks like you in that one. And she also looks like an adult :)

  3. Really? You don't think it's just because they're my glasses?

  4. No -- she looks like a college student...until you see the next picture :) And Jason immediately agreed with Matt about the >100%.
