Elijah - 2 Months

It's hard to believe that little E is already 2 months old! The time has gone so fast, but at the same time, it's hard to remember a time when he wasn't around!

He is a smiley little guy for the most part. He is just as vocal as Mara was when she was a baby. He is 'talking' a lot, and lets us know if he isn't happy!

He loves snoozing in his swing, having long conversations, and watching his big sister do things!

We've been back and forth on what nickname to use for the little guy, and still haven't really decided. Mara calls him EJ -- it's the only name she can actually (sort of) say. So we call him that a lot. And sometimes Eli. I guess he might just have multiple nicknames!

Mara's Birthday Party

Mara had a blast at her birthday party! She was a little shy at first, but that didn't last too long and soon she was enjoying being the center of attention! She loves it!

She loved her new sunglasses (from Aunt Jenna and Uncle Derek) and wore them the rest of the day! I crack up every time she is wearing them!

We managed to get a pretty good family picture taken, so I was happy about that!

It was nice that my family was able to make it for the party - Mara had a lot of fun, and hopefully everyone else enjoyed themselves too!

Mara is TWO!

She looks thrilled to be two, huh? She was tired and mad at me when I took these, but at least they accurately depict the attitude of a two year old I guess...

I can't believe my 'baby' is two already! It seems like just yesterday she was a newborn...or learning to sit up...or crawl...or walk. Now she's running around, talking up a storm, and throwing tantrums!

I think this is the last monthly photo shoot we'll be doing. We've done one every month for the last two years! Lots of fun memories looking back at the pictures...she has changed so much!!
