Emery is 2 Months Old!!

Yup, my sweet little baby is now 2 months old! I can't believe it has already been 2 months since she arrived in our lives. I fell so blessed and just can't believe how lucky we are to have her.

She had her checkup this morning, and she is 9 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches long. She's huge!! Okay, maybe not huge, but she is starting to get the cute little chunky legs and belly. I joked to the nurse that she is now the size of a slightly large newborn. Those stats put her in the 20% for weight and 10% for height. Yes, my kids are just little.

In case anyone is wondering, I still LOVE our cloth diapers. They are so easy to use (really, I promise) and they are so much softer on her skin than paper. I figure I've already saved several hundred dollars, and I know her skin is much happier. Here is a picture of her in a gdiaper...they are a hybrid between cloth and disposables, and are really easy to use.

Little miss Emery also surprised us the other night and rolled over! I couldn't believe it, but she was laying on our bed on her belly and pushed herself over onto her back. What can I say? My kids are just gifted :-)

She still doesn't really like her carseat unless it is in motion. And she REALLY hates traffic. The constant stop and go in the carseat just makes her scream. It is ear-piercing and there is not a lot I can do about it. Caleb sits next to her in the car, and likes to tell me what she needs: "Mommy she wants her pacifier. Okay, that didn't work...maybe she wants her bottle. Mom, she doesn't want her bottle. Mom, why is she still crying? Maybe she wants her pacifier again." It's never-ending.

Emery also still prefers to be worn. I bought a little pouch sling at Target the other day in desperation. I was trying to shop and had left my front carrier at home, and she was not enjoying sitting in the carseat. I was worried the employees might kick me out of the store if I didn't get her to stop screaming soon, so I put her in the pouch and she immediately stopped. It's really amazing how quickly she quiets down when I put her in a carrier on me. It's like a light switch.

We have figured out that Emery (so far) is a water baby. She loves to take showers with me, and even took a bath with Bekah a few days ago. The only part of the bath/shower that she doesn't like is the getting out part. Lucky for me, Daddy usually gets to be the bad guy and take her out :-)

The G diaper is adorable. And seriously, my firstborn was an ounce heavier at birth- 9 lbs, 7 oz. Hilarious! Anyway...glad you guys are doing so well!

Hi, I know this is crazy that I followed your comment from a different blog ... you wanted to make reusable sandwich bags and don't have a serger. ... I've made them with food-grade camping vinyl which is better than the vinyl you iron on. You should be able to use this with a regular sewing machine and turn the bags inside out and all of that. Here's where I got mine:
Good luck!

Not trying to be a creepy stalker but my diaper swappers account is being weird but I am very interested in your bff bag.
