Elliotte 2 months!

I cannot believe Elliotte is 2 months old already! Time really does fly by. She is the sweetest baby and is a "good baby" as everyone keeps asking me. I love when I go in to get her in the morning and those big eyes are looking up at me. Ben is such a big help. He gets up to change her diaper at night and brings her to me to nurse. In the mornings and at night he always wants to hold her while I get things done around the house.
I'll be going back to work in 2 weeks. Not sure if I'll be back at Baptist on the Oncology floor or not. I find out this week if I get a Clinical Educator position with St. Thomas Health Services. It's more money and better hours so I'd love to get it. But if not, I've got a great job that I enjoy. Elliotte will be spending a lot more time with her Nonna (my mom) once I go back to work. Makes me very happy to know she'll be very well taken care of while I'm away.

At 8 weeks Elliotte was:
weight: 12 pounds 3 oz. (95%)
length: 22 inches (45%)
head circ: 15 inches (45%)

At 2 months Elliotte:
Is "talking" some
Smiles more each day
Focuses on objects especially fans
Loves music
Looks like her Daddy
LOVES to be outside
Trying to roll over
Sleeps 5-6 hours after night time bottle
Nurses the rest of the time
Still sleeps tightly swaddled
Has an umbilical hernia
Has very strong legs with lots of rolls

Worn out after 8 week shots!

Bath time. She's starting to like it more. You can see her hernia a little in this pic.
