Horray for Mirah! Today she is 2 months old! Wow. To celebrate Mommy is going to take her to the expensive baby clothes store to return the clothes she bought last week with Auntie Amy. Amy, I know you think I'm crazy, but I just have to do it. Mirah, with your leakage record, my dear, we are going to have to wait for the expensive stuff.

After that, Mommy and her friend Juliet are going to the outlet mall to BARGAIN shop for baby clothes. Who do I sound like now? Great Grandma Gunlikson, maybe?

At 2 mos. What Mirah can do:
1. smile
2. laugh
3. say "agooo," "ack," and "epistemology"
4. behave at mommy/baby exercise class (yes!)
5. fall asleep on her own (yes! x2)
6. eat from a bottle (horray x3)

What Mirah won't do:
1. burp easily for mommy at 3am (instead she grunts all night and then belts out an earth-shaker at 7am)
2. sleep more than 4 hrs in a row at night. (4 hours is actually a huge improvement over the every 2 hour thing she was stuck on for a while.)
3. nap in her cradle for more than 20 minutes, on our bed she'll do 2+ hours, though. Figures.

So, we'll keep working on the sleep thing. I know you've got an all-nighter in you, Mirah. Stay tuned we'll be posting some new videos soon.

xoxo,

mommy

Auntie Amy (who is hot and single) visited again!

Auntie Amy was in CT again visiting us. We had a wonderful time of course. Amy really helped me (Sara) out a lot since Mirah was going through a fussy stage and not sleeping very well.

On my birthday she used her brilliant baking skills and made me a very delicious Tres Leches cake.... yum.

Cuddling together, something Mirah and Auntie do a lot! On one occasion Mirah was lying on A's chest and she pushed herself up with her arms. Auntie was so proud!

Mommy's birthday


IMG_1937
Hi. It's Mommy here. It was my birthday on the 16th and we had a great day. Auntie Amy is here. She and Daddy took care of things so that I was able to relax and spend time with Mirah. Here we are resting. Mirah loves to hold up her little pinky. She placed it on my lower lip while I talked on the phone. What a funny girl!

Little Mirah got me a balloon and beautiful spring flowers!

I kept saying look how cute Mirah looks here...... and over here.... and here!

Mirah has some new friends


IMG_1889IMG_1890

Mirah had some friends come over for a visit this week--- Tai and Juliet. Tai just turned one in February. He was very curious about Mirah and really wanted to touch her. Tai's mom, Juliet, is a great friend of mine (Sara:)). She's been such a great person to know as I went through pregnancy and now have entered into motherhood. I promise I will get a pic of her up here sometime where you can actually see her!

Mommy was very excited to take Mirah on her first stroller walk!!! It was a little windy so we only strolled for a couple blocks but Mirah sure seemed to like it!!! Soon it will be Spring and she'll be going all over the neighborhood.
