Two months

Paige was 2 months old last week! I waited to do this post since she went for her checkup on Thursday, then I could have her updated stats. The months are going by so fast. I feel like I blink and another week goes by.

Paige is getting to be much more interactive, and it is so fun! I love watching her face light up when she smiles at you! And when she smiles at Levi it pretty much makes my heart explode.

Paige, at 2 months::

Weighs 10 lbs 12.5 oz.

Is 23 inches long.

Wearing size 3 month clothes.

In size 1 dipes.

Loves to smile. I think she's going to have dimples. :)

Started cooing. I just love watching her as she tries to get those little sounds out, it is so cute.

Does really good with tummy time. She still gets annoyed with it after so long, but she is getting stronger and does awesome holding her head up!

Sleeps at least a 5 hour stretch most nights, then another 2-3, sometimes longer.

Naps are hit and miss depending on the day, especially with Mr. Crazy-Loud brother squealing and screaming or banging things. I think I'm going to have to start putting her down for naps in her crib soon, away from the noise, since she is getting more sensitive to that it seems.

Still nursing, and that is going well, she is a good eater. She tends to get bubbles in her tummy because she eats so fast, but we can usually get them out.

Loves her binker as much as her brother did.

Now I'll just leave you with some more photos of our sweet girl!

County Fair time!

The county fair is one of my favorite times of year. Now that we have kids, it is even more fun! (For the most part! :) Levi had an absolute BLAST on the rides. I was surprised by the ones that he wanted to go on. Most kids his age are still a little hesitant about doing certain ones by themselves, but he wasn't afraid at all. It made his mommy a bit nervous...but also kinda happy that he's so brave! :)

The first pics are from Friday afternoon. My mom and sister came up and we went on a few rides with them. 

These next few are from Friday evening, when we went back in ourselves and Paul's parents came with us too. We asked Levi what the first ride he wanted to go on was, and his answer was "fair wheel" (ferris wheel).  What?! Umm, maybe next year. He kept asking to go on it all night, and even on Saturday night when we went back he wanted to go on it. We would have taken him, but both of us were worried that he'd get to the top and be scared. Who knows, maybe he would have loved it!

This one was called Puppy Love, and it went back and forth. He loved it!
 He wanted to ride the dragon roller coaster, and I wasn't sure how he would do, but as soon as it started moving he had a huge smile on his face the whole time! Not scared one bit. He went on this one twice!
Not the best pic, but he is in the second car.
 I think his favorite was the bumper cars, though! He was giggling the whole time as they ran into the other cars! Such a boy, oh my gosh. Paul took him on these Saturday night, too, and he had a blast. Little stinker was spinning around in his seat, looking behind him, and at one point he was almost standing in there until Paul pulled him back down! Agh! With the hugest grin ever on his face the whole time. There is nothing like seeing that face of sheer delight on your kid. It makes me forget how much of a turd he can be sometimes, lol.

Can't wait until next year!!

Sunday evening fire

Two posts in one day?! I thought instead of lumping all the pictures from this weekend into one post I would separate them out. :)

We'll start out with a daddy and daughter afternoon nap. After I took this pic, Paige moved her arm over her head too, so that was pretty cute. Notice the strategically placed combine by Paige's feet.
 I have been wanting to make a fire to make s'mores with Levi all summer, and we finally had a good night to do that. Here's a lovely photo of Paul toasting the marshmallows. He humors me and my obsessive picture taking. Most of the time.
 Levi's first taste of a s'more. He wasn't as impressed as I thought he would be. He traded the s'more for a piece of plain chocolate.
 I can't not include a picture of her! She's so smiley now! :)

Aaron's B-day

It was our nephew Aaron's 3rd birthday on Saturday. We went over to Mark and Jess's place to celebrate that evening, they made supper and then we opened presents. Of course, Levi wouldn't eat anything with the play set in view, and all of the new-to-him toys inside. Eventually I got him to have a few bites. But anyways, it was a beautiful night, so we ate and opened presents outside. Aaron's favorite present was a toy chainsaw that his Aunt and Uncle on Jess's side got him. Here are a few shots of the birthday boy! Isn't he a cutie?

 They have a go-kart and Paul took Levi for a ride. I'm not sure who was having more fun! The grin didn't leave either of their faces the whole time they were riding around the yard! Boys and their toys, right? :)
 And we can't have a post without a picture of Miss Peanut. Paige is getting so strong! Just within the last week she seems like she's really getting stronger with holding her head up during tummy time.
 This one just kills me. The look. Those cheeks. Her little lips. Too precious!

More pics (again!)

I love how they are both looking at each other in this picture! He loves her so much, and I know she is going to love him, too, as she gets bigger.

I had to take a couple pics of her in this little skirt before she grew out of it.
This is as close to a 'perfect' shot of them together as I am going to get! He was sitting there so nice, even though I had to be quick to get him looking at the camera instead of his cartoons.
And this just makes me laugh. The look on Paige's face is so funny! Better get used to it girly, he is a loud one!
During a brief nap on the couch.
Hello smiley!
Mr. Big Blue Eyes. Growing up so fast.
