Everyone keeps asking who she looks like...

...I'd say Brett in this pic:
She's sitting on her own... well almostPool party at Grandma Jan's w/ baby Emery & baby Eliana

Ladies Night! (First overnight on my own while Brett was off at Uncle Jake's Bachelor Party some of the besties came to keep Lillian, Lucy & I company)

For those of you that haven't heard - My boss & I had our babies on the same day, in the same room (not at the same time :) ) but yes, still weird! Here's the four of us on a little out of office 2:2 (Elizabeth & Baby Sophie)
At last we are back in the man cave post-baby for party time after Brooke's Bridal Shower
With our low ceilings sometimes man cave party time can require helmets...Meeting Great-Grandma

Tummy Time!

I'm 2 Months Old!

Lillian Brooke has hit her two month marker - a big one that we never thought we'd make it to in those early weeks of long nights and nervous thoughts of catching some bug... pediatrician warned if Lily gets a fever in first 8 weeks it's off to be admitted in the hospital and full spinal tap - yikes! We made it though - and the days (and nights) with Lillian are more amazing than ever! Lily aced her second report card with HIGH flying colors. Our little, ok not so little, peanut is in the 90% percentile in height and weight - resembling more of a 3 month old than the average 2 month old. She was a trooper through the shots and had surpassed all recommended milestones. We are proud parents!

"Aunt" Kimmy gave the great idea to start documenting a few things about Lily, so here goes - scroll down for pics :)

At 2 Months:
Weight: 12 lbs 11 1/2 oz (90th %)
Height: 23.5" (90th %)
Head Circ: 40.5 (75-90%)

Things Lillian learned this month:
*push ups * holding pacifier, rattle, etc. * hands to face * life head and move from side to side * cooing * tracking objects besides just faces * sitting in laps * how to chill out just by hearing someone's voice she likes * SMILING!!!
New places she visited:
*Chelan * Wenatchee * & Lee & Hayes firm BBQ * Old Speghetti House in Celebration of Grandpa Jeff * Many new restaurants, coffee houses, etc. along the way!
Things she loves:
*bouncing * dancing * music * binkies * lights * outdoors/fresh air * "house white" * Ergo time * Walks w/ Sissy * patty cake * car rides * swaddle * football hold * activity mat * mirrors * swimming * boating * cuddling w/ Zeus
Things she hates:
* getting put in the car seat * being hungry * direct sunlight * being too hot/cold * extended tummy time * rash from new cloth diapers
* Peanut * Lily Bean * Pea * Sweat Pea * Sissy * Pea Pod * Silly Lily * Lil * Lil Brooke * Lily B


At the doc after shots, "I'm such a freakin' trooper, let's get the heck out of here."
Deep breaths
We are starting a bit of a tradition of a little road trip/travel for each of Lillian's monthly "birthdays" - Month 1 was golfing and wine tasting in Yakima, Month 2 we headed to Lake Chelan with two other families for boating, pool and relax time in a fabulous rental home on the water that the Newman's locked down for the week!

Pool Time! Lillian LOVED the water. She got this zoned out calm, happy look on her face when her body was floating around. (See pic w/ Brett below for example.)

I'm on a boat! Could she BE more excited?!
Emery & Lily finally asked for parents to stop smothering them and let them lay on the ground of the boat and enjoy the waves. Very happy babies!
Too much partying, so tired
