It's a bit late...

We have been so busy lately, I forgot once again to put up some 2 month pictures here. At least I remembered to take them; I wouldn't be very happy with myself if I forgot that. Anyway, here are a couple of ones I really like (out of the 20ish pics I took). I can't help it...she's too cute to only take a couple of pictures.

Guess who's actually laughing now?! I heard it for the first time today; Ember was sitting on my knees, and I was making wacky sounds...all of a sudden she gave me a huuuuuge grin and started laughing! It totally wasn't a fluke, either. I kept making the silly noises and she kept grinning and laughing after! It's just so amazing seeing her go from a baby who can't do anything but eat and cry, to someone who can interact with others and show her personality. I love it!
Maybe next time I'll be able to catch it on video. :D

I'm getting lazy...

Oh last update was a couple of weeks ago and so much has happened since then. Ember's been smiling, cooing at everyone, and is starting to discover that her hands are part of her body and she can touch things with them. She also turned two months old last Sunday, and of course I took a million and one pictures.

I'll hopefully be posting the pics tonight. Right now I have to get ready for school.

We can definitely already tell that Ember is a very charismatic baby. She started smiling pretty early at 4 weeks, and now she is talking up a storm. It started with her making a couple of sounds in her throat, but now she is starting to move her mouth to manipulate what sounds she makes. It's fun to hold conversations with her now that she can smile, talk back, and even squeal (which often gives her hiccups!).

We've also recently noticed that when she sees a toy, usually a stuffed animal, she likes to talk to it. It's so sweet and funny to watch! Here is a short video we caught of her conversing with Mr. Elephant:

1 week vs. 1 month

Ember has gotten really big already. She was 7 lbs, 3 oz. at birth, and last Monday when we took her to her pediatricians, we were told that she was 9.5 lbs! My jaw hit the floor when I heard that, but it makes sense because 1)She loves to eat, and 2)Her face is a lot rounder and my arm gets tired more quickly after holding her.

Anyway, here are some pictures comparing her at one week old to her at one month old:
