Two months! Two months!

Hey Ellie,

They say it’s your birthday! Okay, two month birthday anyway, but you’ve never celebrated it before so that means it is SPECIAL.

Two months ago, you were born! And now you are my crazy, beautiful, happy little baby.

So far, this month, you have discovered the fine art of squealing and babbling and cooing and laughing and making some noise that sounds like the letter “K” with a little spit added in for good measure.

You have a pretty voice, you know.

You’re holding your head up nicely which means that at any moment you will figure out how to drive and then we will have to start hiding the car keys. You can put pressure on your legs so sometimes we pretend that you can stand all on your own.

I’m hoping that moment won’t come for awhile, however, because I’m just not ready to have a walker on my hands.

I think the best part, however, is our relationship. Sometimes someone will hold you and then you will start to cry. You stop when I come over and pick you up and that makes me very happy because it means you know who I am! It makes me very happy when you wrap your little hands around my neck and squeeze tightly.

Never stop squeezing, sweetie.

You’re also learning who that Daddy guy is and it is really fun when I see you gazing up at him lovingly or when you read out and wrap your tiny little hand around his finger. I have a feeling you just know that one day you’ll be bigger than him!

Speaking of getting bigger– you are already 12 pounds, 6 ounces and 25.5 inches long. We need to discuss this.

    Awww, what a sweet face! The pic with Daddy - she seems to be thinking, “you’ll be wrapped around my finger in no time!”

    I’m happy to tell you they continue to squeeze at 20 months and want to be held long after they’ve outgrown your strength. Great entry!
