2 Month Update

Miss Cora is 2 months!  What's Cora like these days?  Well...
  • Her nickname is Cora-bell.
  • She weighed 14 lbs, 2 oz and was 23 1/4 inches at her 2 month apptmt.  That's a big girl!
  • She has an AWESOME smile - it is a sweet, full-on, quiet smile and she pulls it out when she sees either her Mommy or her Daddy. 
  • She has started making some "talking" noises - they are so quiet and sweet - little tiny coos and goos.
  • She is gradually going longer between feedings - she went 8 days only waking once between 3/4 a.m.  The last two nights, not so much, but hopefully that was just a fluke.
  • She is the easiest nurser!  She eats on one side only, takes about 5 minutes, and then is set for another 2-3 hours.  
  • She spends most of the morning trying to sleep, but seems to always get woken up (hello Jack).  She then eventually conks out for a 2-4 hour nap late morning or early afternoon when I can get her in a quiet spot.
  • She is very loved by the rest of us and we are all really enjoying having a baby in the house.

  • I love potty-trained children!
  • His hair grows crazy fast!  We are cutting it every 6 weeks, but he starts looking like he needs a cut after three.
  • He is unpredictable these days!  95% of his interactions with Cora are sweet (rocking her chair when she cries, putting her paci back in, and hundreds of kisses), but I never know when the 5% is going to come out!  Little stressful!
  • He is enamored, in love, passionate and all other similar words about fire trucks!  A visit to the fire station makes him positively giddy.  He spends hours building fire stations and making fire trucks out of LEGOS.  He plays fireman a lot and can do a mean fire engine siren.

  • After many hours of studying, Jacob successfully passed both his finance and accounting courses.  Next up, "Finance 2" and Managing Change.
  • We now have sweet olive trees, fig and lemon trees, blueberry and blackberry bushes, and some grape vines planted.
 Oh and are these not adorable???
