Happy 2 month birthday Everly!

Our darling Everly was born 8 weeks ago and is now a two month old. Can you believe it? I know I sure can’t!

She came in to the world totally new to everything and has come so far in these past 8 weeks. When she was born all she was doing was sleeping and looking around.

At 2 weeks old she had her first bath when her umbilical stump fell off. She’s been to the State Fair and even back to her birth place for a followup appointment with the midwife who delivered her.

She’s learned our scents and has really bonded with us and adjusted to our home (pets and all). She learned breastfeeding and has grown so darn much.

She now smiles and imitates some of the faces we make a her. She is experimenting with different vocalizations and is making many more sounds. She’s even rolling over, holding her head up and trying out standing these days.

She’s getting the hang of playing and really enjoys anything musical. She loves when we sing or play music and she is great when the marching band plays music at my colorguard rehearsals.

It’s been a whirlwind 8 weeks for all of us but now it seems like she’s always been with us and we are comfortably in a groove. It’s like we’ve always been parents.

  1. It’s that feeling of not really remembering NOT having your baby that it’s so amazing. She is now a part of your lives in the future and past.

    You can’t imagine not having her, can you?

    This was the most amazing part of having a child for me. While I could certainly remember life as not a mother… it lacked a certain reality that life as a mother had.

    Children not only change the present and the future, but they somehow manage to change the past also. Do not be offended that I cannot imagine you and N without Everly now any more than I can imagine my daughters without their children… my grandchildren… who have always existed in some form and now that form is realized for me.

  3. Oh man it has been so long since I’ve been here! Please forgive me for being away so much! Your Everly is so precious – what a living doll she is! I can’t believe she is already 2 months old!!! I wish the world would stop spinning so fast because I feel like I’m missing everything. I wanted to pop over and let you know I got my paypal winnings – thank you so much! It may not have been megabucks, but I get bragging rights so that is good! LOL! I’ve missed you and hope to get around more but it has been tough with school and all. I am so glad to see that your little family is doing well. 🙂 Hugs to you!!!
