Brady at 2 months old

Living it up at Camp

First try at the bumbo

I said this last post, but I cannot believe you are 2 months old already! Where has time gone and where has my little baby gone? We went to the pediatrician for your 2 month appointment a little early as we we were taking a plane ride when you were 7 weeks old - you did well with the shots, but it broke mommy's heart when you screamed in pain. You had no reactions, but slept pretty much the whole day. You were 23" long and weighed 11 lbs 10 oz. You love to eat, which is now starting to show - you have cute little rolls on your arms and legs - I could eat them up...honestly! You took your first plane ride when you were 7 weeks old - you did pretty well considering I fed you the entire time! You enjoyed camp as well, but not so much in the water  (it was a little too cold for you)! 
I thought you were collicky while we were at camp, but realized that you were not getting enough to eat from me. So no more nursing for you, I solely pump and you eat from a bottle. You have had no issues with the bottle which I'm grateful for. Now that we figured out what was wrong, you are a happy camper!
We made our first trip to the pediatrician for a non-health visit as your big sister Harper put a bobby pin in your ear and we weren't sure if there was any damage. Thankfully we got a clean bill of health report!
You rolled over for the first time the other day - I thought it was an accident, but today you rolled over 4x's in a row!!
Brady you are growing so fast, it makes me sad. We thought Harper could be the only joy of our life, but you completely proved us wrong! We love you so much and can't wait for you to enjoy our new family of four!

Harper is 20 months old

Sliding down the BIG water slide at Great G-ma and G-pa's house in NY (you LOVED this) and kept saying, My Turn!

Getting ready to go fishing with Daddy!

Things you are doing at 20 months:

3. Finally saying Thanks
4. You love to "drive" daddy's car when you see him pull up to the driveway
5. You are a BIG daddy's girl right now
6. Since Brady has arrived, I think you have become a little jealous, especially when someone is feeding him
7. You love to kiss your brother - you call him Baby b/c you can't say Brady (yet)
8. You are still wearing size 4 diapers and between 18 - 24 month clothes
9. We successfully moved you into a big girl bed and you LOVE it. Daddy has put every stuffed animal that was in your crib in your big girl bed!
10. You currently love humus, cottage cheese, american cheese slices, apples which you dip in peanut butter/caramel sauce, any kind of fruit, smoothies, yogurt popsicles, chicken, green beans, asparagus, peas, ice cream and cookies (which are your two new favorite words), and always FISH!
11. We have told you multiple times when you are drinking juice, milk, or water but you insist on calling everything JUICE
12. You are a fish in the water and you have no fear!
13. We took you tubing at Buck Lake for the first time and you had the time of your life - you kept saying WEEEEE when we would go over waves
14. You listen when you want
15. The terrible 2's has started already.....what are we in for?
16. You received your first big wheels - and you love riding it, although your feet don't stretch all the way to the pedals
17. Your eyes are a very pretty hazel (green/grey/blue)
18. You are a tan little toe-head

20. You can point to a family member in a picture and name them

Harper you are and have always been the light of our lives and it has only gotten to be more interesting and fun every month! We love with all of our hearts and are glad we were blessed with you as our child!
