Addison is 2 Months Old!

Our little princess is 2 months old! Addison is still a little peanut. Her 2 month doctor's appointment isn't until next week, so we will see what she weighs but I know she is nowhere near as big as Jackson was at this age. She is very long and is in 0-3 month clothes now. She grew out of her newborn sleepers by 1 month because she was too long for them. Addison is still a very serious baby. When she is content, she is so sweet. She has a little raspy voice when she coos and you have to almost strain to hear her. Her smile is huge and she saves it for only very special times. It's like a little treasure every time she smiles because she doesn't do it just any old time:). Daddy's fun noises elicited this precious smile:

Our struggles this month continue to be fussiness and sleep issues. Addison is only content for 15 minutes or so after eating usually and then it is back to fussing. She sleeps on and off all day, sometimes taking a substantial nap, sometimes waking up the minute we put her down. She had some good nights this month, sleeping up to 4 hours at a time. But, alas, she is back to only sleeping 2-3 hours the first stretch at night and then an hour or two here and there the rest of the night. Needless to say, I am praying for sleep on a daily basis now. My eyes and head hurt pretty much non-stop from pure exhaustion. I do have my sweet times with her in the early morning. She wakes up very early and I nurse her in bed and then she cuddles there with me while I try to doze. She doesn't ever go into a deep sleep, but I savor that time with her. She finally gets sick of it and fusses enough that I get up with her. Usually she has to poop right away in the morning and that is why she gets me up:). Speaking of pooping, this girl poops like a machine! She still goes up to 6 times a day and usually at least one of those is a "blow out" and the entire outfit needs to be changed! Such a lady:).

We absolutely love our little girl. We know that even though it is hard now, the time will fly by and pretty soon she'll be an independent big girl! So I am enjoying our sweet moments and surviving all the rest for now. In the end, I feel so blessed to have my little girl. I love, love, love that I get to have a son and a daughter. They are both so special in their own perfect ways. Addison certainly did complete our family in a way only she could, and we couldn't be more grateful!


  1. She is so cute!!!
    I hope she gets to sleeping better!!!! You too!

  2. looks at those gorgeous smiles!!! She's is perfect! Thank you for all your kind words. They mean so much to me!

  3. Faith! OMG.. she looks sooo much like you! haha! What a little babydoll girl pie. I wish I could pick her up and smooch her cheeks :)

    You should post a side-by-side pic of you as a baby next to Addison's baby pic. I'm curious as to how similiar you two look as babies!! =D


  4. For sure she is your daughter! She even has signs of your personality! She is a masterpiece if ever I saw one. Seeing Jason and you and "the family" was the best part of my year so far! Now we just need to get there. Now the days are counting down. Can you believe it? What a journey!!!!!!
