Annalee Estelle | Two Months

Dear Annalee,

What an exciting month it has been. You have grown so much and developed the cutest personality. We love to see your face light up when you recognize our voice or face. You smile with your whole face and your big blue eyes melt our heart instantly. You are becoming a great sleeper, waking only twice at night to eat and you love bath time. You are such a great eater too, taking down 3 oz. every three hours, but haven't gained weight like we wanted. We've started feeding you every 2.5 hours during the day to beef you up a little. We still have you sleeping in your bassinet in our room, which I think is more for me than for you, but it's nice to have you close for now. You took your first flight at 6 weeks and you traveled like a pro! We can't wait to take you on more trips very soon. You came to work with Mommy for the first time and you were an angel, sleeping right through your first meeting. We also took you to Mulberry Hill for the first time to meet Daddy's co-workers. We hosted a lunch in your honor and they loved meeting you! The guys even bought you a life-size giraffe, which so far you seem to enjoy. You enjoyed hanging with your bestie Hadley for a few outings this month, who is just a couple months older than you - her mom and I are excited for you girls to grow up together. This month has really flown by and your momma has loved being home with you!
