TWO months old!

londeloo is two whole months. already!
i love her more and more everyday. which is crazy since every time i see her i feel like my heart will burst. how much love can one heart take?!

we went to the doctor's yesterday for her two month check up and she is growing fabulously! i'm so thankful for her health.

two month stats:
8 lbs. 12 oz.
21.5 inches

that's two pounds and two inches in two months! what a good little grower.
8th percentile in weight & 20th percentile in height. small, long and skinny. with just the perfect amount of "chunk" :)

all about london at two months old:
-still adores her hands & sucks on them all the time. especially when hungry.
-is still such a great nurser. and always on schedule! she started grabbing my shirt while feeding. her tiny little fist holding on for dear life always melts my heart. & i love how she looks at me while nursing. i think it's her way of saying "thank you, mama". :)
-has the cutest new cries and whimpers. and it has an ADORABLE little rasp to it. it kills me. these new cries really make her personality shine through. sometimes it's a little "ehhhh" while looking around. kind of like "ehh i'm bored." so we "stand" her up and she's happy as a clam!
-speaking of "standing", she still loves to do that and she is SO good at it! her head control is fabulous. you can tell she's so proud of herself, too.
-she turned over for the first time last friday! three times in a row! i was the only one to witness it :/ but she did it for daddy on sunday night :)
-still hates her car seat. but, my mom has been visiting (yay!) and we were at babies r us, and we spotted a cute little giraffe that plays 4 different sounds and it attaches to a stroller or car seat and this little gem works GREAT! she now cries only 50% of the time in the car compared to 90% without it. we love this giraffe and named him "raffie". :)
-she smiles like CRAZY! especially when she sees mama :) i love that she's a mommy's girl. and i love being her whole world. but, when daddy is home she is content as can be in his arms. it's only a matter of time until she's a full on daddy's girl so i'm soaking it up :D
-still LOVES LOVES LOOOOVES her baths! always without fail makes her so smiley and happy. one time, after screaming (and i mean screaming) in the car, i plopped her in her bath and she immediately stopped and was smiling away! she cries when we take her out, too. our little water baby.
-such a great sleeper. we give her her baths around 8, then she sleeps after that for about 1.5 hours, then wakes up to eat and play a little then goes back to sleep and i wake her up around 11:30 or 12 to feed then she always sleeps from midnight until 4 or 5, eats, sleeps until 8, eats, sleeps until 9:30, eats then plays for about half an hour then sleeps again until 11. i'm pretty spoiled, hoping she continues to be a great sleeper.
-we put her in her stroller forward facing without her car seat (remember, she hates her seat) and she was in HEAVEN! so much to look at and study. within 10 minutes she was conked out from the excitement :)

sigh...words will never be able to express our love for this little munchkin.
you're our world, london estelle!



  1. Ahh, I remember when Avery starting grabbing my shirt. It melts your heart! It keeps getting better too. Now she plays with my hair, and smiles. It's so exciting when they grow out of that blob stage :-) Go London rolling over! Wow, Avery was 15 weeks before she finally rolled. And I hear you on the carseat mama :-/ I have dreaded going anywhere. It wasn't until the past few weeks that she has mostly stopped crying, and she's almost six months!
