grandparents & dancing

I still have a hard time believing that my baby is no longer my baby, and that he is in preschool. Everything about this school is amazing which has helped me out with not having him home with me! The teachers really work on the kids one on one and it is structured like a regular elementary school. They work on all of the kids motor skills, communication and problem solving. I am not bragging on this school because my mother in law owns it.... I am bragging on it because the passion that these teachers have for these students is incredible! Caleb's teacher has a masters degree in education and could teach anywhere. I am so thankful that she is with Caleb and helping him grow!

The school hosted a little event for the grandparents. It was so sweet, they had bookmakers made for them, snacks and hats. The only grandparent that couldn't make it was my dad (golf tournament), we face timed him so he could see what was going on. 

The kids had been practicing 3 songs to preform for everyone. Caleb made me laugh so hard when he would scream... MOMMA!!! NANA!!!!! every time he saw us. We both had to hide behind people so that he would stop (but I thought it was the cutest thing ever).

Baby Must Haves: 2 Month


1. The Balboa Baby Sling - Anna loves being held, but sometimes I really need my hands to either clean or cook and this sling is amazing. We have the ergo baby but she is still to small for it. This sling is normally $70 bucks but I found it at my new favorite kids consignment shop called the littlest trunk for $20. It was still in it's box and never worn. Score!!!

2. The baby swing. They don't sell the one we have anymore. It was Caleb's when he was a baby. Anna use to dislike the swing, she would cry every time she was put in it. Now she sits so peacefully.

3. My little Anna is a magician, no matter how tight we swaddle her she breaks free. These Aden + Anais swaddles are brilliant. She is trapped in them and sleeps all night long!

4. When I found out I was having a girl one of the first things I told my hubby is... "can you imagine how many bows I am going to buy her". Well I have bought my share of bows for her. The best bows I have bought are from Just my Bow Shop. Her prices are awesome and she makes custom bows!

5. This sweet giraffe puts Anna Grace to sleep in a matter of minutes. I have to be careful because it is so soothing that I feel like passing out.

Two Month Old

Happy two month birthday
Anna Grace!

Here are somethings to remember about your second month:

* your two month appointment you weighed 11 pounds and measured at 22 1/2 inches long.

*You are in the 59% percentile for weight and 58% percentile for length

*You are still wearing some newborn clothes, but mostly 3 month size.

*You just started wearing size 1 diapers.

*The swing you once hated, is now loved very much by you.

*You follow Caleb with your eyes and smile when you first see him.

*When I ask you to tell me a story, you start cooing and smiling at me. 

*I am brought to tears daily when I look at you!

*You are still not a big eater, about 3 ounces every feeding.

*You are sleeping through the night! Fall asleep around 10:00pm and wake up around 5:00am. You eat and then sleep again till 8:00am. 

*You love to be with me. I carry you a bunch in your sling or put your seat on the counter so you can either see me craft, clean or cook.
