2 month update

she is already 2 months old!!!

things have been quite crazy around here...that story is for another post...right now i am just enjoying being with my growing girl!!
she hasn't had a doctor's appointment in a while so i don't have any stats, but, eric and i will probably weigh her ourselves before we head to georgia for christmas.
she has started to be able to follow our voices and she is focusing a lot better. i have her in 0-3 month clothes already. and she is awake so much more than she used to be. (of course, these pictures wouldn't prove that she is awake more)
eric and i are having so much fun parenting gemma...

first road trip

sarah took a road trip with gemma to visit aunt jenni and uncle timbob. They had a good ol' time helping jenni register for her baby shower. While they were gone I was able to get some work done and also went to my work's christmas party.

this is probably my favorite picture of gemma so far!

more swagbucks

you might remember when i posted this certain picture a number of months ago... there is a great search engine called swagbucks that allows you to search through them just like google and they give you bucks. after earning a certain number of bucks you can go to their store and buy any number of things.
eric and i choose to buy amazon gift cards...this is what we bought several months ago...

...and this is what we just got in the mail with all the other swagbucks that we earned.

total we have spent about $212 except we got the money for free.

want to try it...

another weigh-in

drum roll please....

playing catch up

it has been a while and there has been a lot going on in this household!! not to mention gemma's first appearance at church...

eric, the proud daddy, got to hold her up in church and introduce her to everyone...and dad, the proud grandpa was able to announce her...our church always has new parents stand up and introduce their new little was very strange having the little one being introduced be ours!!!!

she wore the beautiful sweater that her aunt cara made for her...she is growing so fast i had to make sure that she wore it before she outgrew it!!

today, being veterans day gemma and i went to a museum with adrian and the kiddos!!! the admission was free. i wasn't too sure how the boys would like it, but let me tell you they LOVED it!! two of the three floors had tons of stuffed animals, everything from grizzly bears to zebras. maya and gemma however, were slightly uninterested.

i am already beginning to see what a trooper gemma is. she was really hungry, but i had her in a sling and gave her a pacifier and she was very content just laying there, even though she was an hour past her feeding time!!!

i didn't take any pictures of gigi, but i will have to take a few in her sling...i had to bring the sling along so adrian could help me figure out how to use it exactly...thanks a!!!

weighing in

she is getting huge!!!!

yep our gemma jaye now weighs 5' 11". we set up our very own scale. eric sells things from amazon and ebay and he uses a small scale to figure out postage. we put a cookie sheet on top of it and then laid gemma on top of the cookie sheet.
it is actually very accurate. we weighed her right before her doctor's appointment and both of the scales said the exact same thing.
of course the last time we weighed her was last week, so she has probably gained a few more ounces!!!!!

gemma was actually awake for our little photoshoot this afternoon. i found some super cute headbands at target and just couldn't resist buying them for her.

so...getting a little frustrated that i can't figure out how to make the pictures turn the correct way...someday i will figure it out, but for now just turn your head to the side so you can see it at the correct angle.
