Happy Birthday to REW, Happy Birthday to REW!

Yesterday, Reese Elaine had her 2 month Birthday! What a doll baby! Here are my favorite things about REW. She is a quiet and peaceful child. She literally wakes up to eat and falls right back asleep! How long will THAT last? Her sleeping is sporadic these days, some nights she is up at 3 am and sometimes, she wakes up at 8 am! It is really not that big if a deal though when she wakes up. She loves her bath time so much. I think it to be strange. She just lays there and smiles! She is also a quick nurser. Maximum of 8 minutes. What?! That seems crazy, but if you look at her arms and cheeks, you know she is gettin' the goods! She has the hugest fat rolls on her thighs...lovin' those! Right now, she loves staring at ceiling fans, lights, etc. She will grin and coo for hours if you put her underneath a fan! Whatever works, kiddo. Her acne has cleared up to show her beautiful, sweet skin again! She does have some cradle cap going on and a little bit of eczema. I think you can say she wrote the book on baby skin problems! Also, she is a grunty gal! I LOVE the grunts. I cannot tell if it is Reese Elaine or Frankie making all the sounds! I really just can't say enough about this sweet baby girl. She is so wonderful. The other night, she was just staring into my eyes--and I swear those little eyes were dancing and dancing. We stared at each other for 10 minutes. It was our own little moment. No one else was invited to share in it. I love those times when I can just steal a brief piece of heaven with my kids. To feel nothing but gratitude and love for them. I wish I made more opportunities for them. Anyway, it made me realize how precious time is...and how quickly it goes. I will forever remember the day my daughter's eyes danced at the sight of her mommy.
We got our 2 month old shots today. Of course, she was traumatized. It was the first time I think I have heard her cry, I mean REALLY cry since she was pulled out of the womb (Yes, sisters, there is hope for a non-fussy baby)! She did great though and is currently sleeping in her crib!

Stats:

Height: 22 1/4 inches Weight: 11.4 pounds Head: 39 cm

All are average for her age group!

Nicki,

We don't actually know each other, but have many mutual friends (Abby, Britney, Burson, etc)... I follow your blog and Reese is absolutely precious...she definitely looks like you! Maybe try Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for the eczema. I am a derm pharma rep and Cetaphil is excellent for babies!
