2 months

As everyone knows time flies, but time really flies when you have a newborn that changes everyday! Sarah is 2 months old now. She weighs 11 lbs 4 oz and is 23.5 inches long. She has gained almost 4 pounds since birth and grown 3 inches. She is doing more and more everyday, mostly a lot of cooing and smiling. She has outgrown some newborn outfits and is getting into the 3 month clothes - but they are generally big on her. I put her in the onesie that I bought the day I found out I was having a girl, it's a 3-6 month size - and it kind of turned into a Madonnaish (circa 1985) top, as it kept sliding down off of a shoulder. (It's the one she is wearing in our family pic below - it says "Daddy's little dear".
We attempted to take a family photo yesterday and it was pretty hysterical with Mark's constant eye closing (can't keep his eyes open if he knows when the picture will be taken, but he was the one taking the picture - so not a lot of luck there), Jakob not looking at the camera and climbing all over me and Sarah, and Sarah staring and/or spitting up, and myself making a wierd smile or looking bald on one side because of my hair style!
Anyhow here is one of the better ones that we took - a bit blurry but we all look normal!

Sarah in her 3-6 month sleeper/outfit that we put her in to take her on walks outside! She looks so enthused to be in it - don't you think!

I'm dying, you are cracking me up about the whole photo session because I can totally see the whole scene. :) So beautiful you all are.

Yes, Wendy - it was quite the site trying to get a picture taken. Seriously, we have about 15 pictures with eyes closed, funny faces, half our heads cut off, Sarah has drool on her face etc. I don't think we'll have a reall family photo for a long time!!
