My baby is growing!

Since Friday Lila has had a lot going on. On Friday she turned 2 months old. I can't believe it! On Sunday she was blessed. Today she had a doctor's appointment where she got shots. :(

There's not much to report about Friday other than it's crazy how time flies. She's only two months old but I feel like I'm beginning to understand all those other parents who said that they grow up really fast.

Sunday was a beautiful day and she was an absolute angel at church. Usually I have to leave right after the sacrament is passed to go and feed her, but she lasted all of sacrament. Part of that is probably because we had a bottle of breastmilk ready for her, but she didn't eat that much and she was still really good. I have to admit though that it was really nice to sit through all of sacrament with Micah so I think I'm going to continue taking a bottle to church seeing as she'll be having bottles a lot once I go back to work. I miss being at church and being able to focus on the lessons taught. Anyway, it was really nice being with all of my family and I was grateful for their support.

Today was where the big stuff happened. I was really excited to see how Lila has grown and was hoping I'd get a better report than I did at her two weeks. Turns out she is growing beautifully! The nurse and doctor couldn't stop commenting on how cute our precious girl is... and I'd have to say that I absolutely agree. They said that she was a genuinely cute baby, not just cute because she is a baby. :) Here is her report for 2 months: Weight- 11.44 oz. 64th percentile, Length- 22 in. 32nd percentile. This is around where I expected her to be if she was growing her average 1 oz. a day. I'm so excited that she is doing so well! So it was a great report, but then the sad part came... the shots! :( It was so sad to hear her cry out like that and it was the saddest cry I've ever heard from her. She's doing pretty well now, but every once in a while she cries out a little like she can still feel what happened. I HATE hearing her cry! It seriously makes my heart break! I'm glad it's over and that Micah will be taking her to all of her other shot appointments. ;)

Since so much has happened I thought I would tell you a little about Lila:
~She loves to smile, but I haven't caught one on camera yet... darn
~She hates lying down because she wants to see what's going on around her.
~She loves to be outside and go on walks with me every evening.
~She loves to sit on her daddy's lap and just smile at him... she smiles way more for him than me.
~She loves to cuddle.
~She has the biggest smile on her face right now as I am typing this. :)
~She is the best thing that has ever happened to us and we are truly blessed to have her.

We love you little Lila!


  1. Who is going to watch her while you're at work?

  3. My husband just finished his classes for his undergrad at BYU today actually (yay!) so he will be home with her for a while. If he gets a job then we'll figure it out, but the plan is for him to be at home for now.

  4. Glad you had a great blessing day! She is beautiful. I am NOT looking forward to the shots in a couple of weeks--Charlie has to get some too. Double babies in pain! It's so sad.
    Just read your comment above, GO MICAH!

  5. That's awesome! Beautiful girl.
    (ps, I always made Peter take Rachel for her shots, too.)
