2 Months ... WHAT?

I can't believe that Elsie has been a part of our lives for two whole months now!  It is ridiculous how fast time has gone.  Again, it feels like she has been here forever, yet it has gone so fast.  At about 6 weeks, she started sleeping from 10 pm until 6 am -- giving her mom and dad a much needed break in the sleep department!  Elsie loves to look around and watch what is going on around her, especially if her big brother is around.  She is becoming much more vocal cooing at whomever will listen to her.  

Since our last milestone post, I have had to go back to work and leave Jace and Els with a family friend.  Thank goodness school is over in 6 school days!  PHEW!  My favorite part of the day is when I get to pick up my little kiddos and I get one of those wide mouth uncontrolled grins -- when her eyes light up when she hears my voice.  It makes me secretly happy that sometimes I'm the only one that can calm her down -- that we have that special bond.  And even though it's looked upon as a "no no ... "  I enjoy snuggling in the middle of the night when she doesn't want to sleep alone.

We haven't had the chance to take many pictures and to do many fun things -- being a working mom of two is BUSY!  But here are some of the things we have done this last month: 

Elsie snuggling up with Grandma at Aunt Steph's and Uncle Trevor's wedding dinner.  (Please ignore my dad's face here!!  What does that look mean?)
 Chilling out with Dad at the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point.  We went there in between the wedding and the reception.
 Can you tell that Jace is LOVING the museum?
 Jace often asks if he can snuggle with Elsie in the morning.  These two are awesome friends already!  As soon as he snuggled up he asked Joe to get the camera!  We're sure to have PLENTY of snap shots of these two snuggling.
 Elsie started playing with the rattles on her little chair.  It took awhile for us to realize that is what she was doing -- she has only done it once, I can't wait for her to do it again!

2 months old
A friend of mine took pictures of her little boy with the same stuffed animal as her baby got older -- to help see the growth that her baby was making.  I thought it was an awesome idea, so plan on seeing this little purple horse hanging around!  :)

I can't believe where time goes! I am desperately trying to hold on to my baby girl as long as possible, but she is growing too quickly! It is fun to see the growth, but my heart aches at the same time, then I look at my other baby and realize he is turning 5 in 2 weeks! By heart breaks some more, but then it is filled with joy at the same time. Yeah...I am an emotional rollercoaseter!

She's so cute! We are glad she is here & though I am sure another boy would have been cute too we sure LOVE her! She is a precious soul with her own little personality...and you can keep trying for another boy :)
