Ellia's 2 Months

How are you possibly 2 months, sweet E??  It feels like just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital!  We love you more every day little lady!  Thank you for being a light in our lives!

I couldn't wait to photograph Ellia in one of my baby gowns;
These pictures are something I'll treasure forever! 

Love her to pieces :) 

Weight: I will have to confirm this at our appointment next  wed. but Ellia is about 8 lbs on our scale! 

Height: will update after appointment

Clothing size: NB 

Diaper size: NB

Feeding: Breast feeding.  I'm literally a milk machine.  We've also been supplementing Nutramigen when Ellia's tummy pain is really bad.  Everything upsets her poor tummy and a bottle or two of Nutramigen gives both her and us some relief :)  You're eating 2-3 oz now every 2-3 hours.

-You are SMILING!  I've captured a few smirks on the camera & I cannot wait to finally capture your sweet smile!
-You're also cooing and you just have the sweetest little voice :)  I love our morning conversations.
-You're holding your head up like a champ and also grabbing for toys while you lay in your play gym
-Sleeping through the night was wishful thinking... You may have done it a few times during your first month, but you sure aren't doing it now, stinker!  Luckily we get a 5-6 hour stretch where you sleep soundly.  It's generally from 9pm-2am & then you're up every 2-4 hours.  

Loves: Being held (especially in our ktan baby carrier) snuggles while you nap & being swaddled tighter than a bursting chipotle burrito (something you and your brother have in common :))

Mommy loves dressing you up for pictures and luckily, you don't seem to mind :) 

Dislikes: If you didn't get terrible tummy pain, you would be one content little lady! You'll be snuggled up, sleeping soundly & will burst into tears because of your tummy troubles.  It's absolutely heart breaking!  You're also not a fan of being 'alone'.  If you're awake, you want to be held or be able to see me sitting next to you.  Unless you're sleeping, your not a fan of being left in the mamaroo.

Adventures: You've celebrated your first Christmas (you were the star of our party) and your first New Years!

Mommy and Daddy could not get through the month without: Nutramigen.  So expensive, but so worth it.  The bouncer, mamaroo, triple paste, and aden + anais easy swaddles have been my top picks this month. 


  1. Love her!!!!! I can't believe she is already 2 months old!!!

  2. She is just perfection Molly! Elliot had tummy aches as well and what I did when I was breast feeding was cut out milk, broccoli, cheese, anything that produces gas and it was a miracle! His pain stopped. It was what I was eating! Hope that helps ;)

  3. Beautiful baby! That is so special that she is wearing one of your gowns too :)

  4. Oh she is sweet!! Hopefully her tummy troubles clear up soon, poor E and mama! Xo!

  5. So obsessed with gold on her! She is the cutest little thing:)

  6. She is so perfect!! Just love her!
