Ettley is two months:

We love having Ettley in our family and Adler is the best big brother ever! Here are some things Ettley has been up to since turning 2 months!

At her last doctor appointment she weighed 9 lbs 2.8 ounces (6th percentile) and she is 23” tall (63rd percentile). She hasn’t been gaining enough weight so I have been trying to increase my milk supply. I have been nursing and pumping and supplementing with formula. I have met with a lactation specialist and I am hoping that my milk supply will go up soon (we took her back in a week later to get her weighed and she had gained weight). 
  • The biggest thing is that she has been sleeping through the night since 5 1/2 weeks old! She will usually fall asleep between 8-9:30 and wakes up between 6:30/7:30. Sometimes she will even sleep until 9!!
  • She will smile at anyone and is always smiling except when we want to get pictures of her.
  • She has started cooing and talking to us a lot! I love baby talk!
  • She is on the verge of laughing but we can’t get it out of her. I know she is close because she laughed in her sleep and it was so cute!
  • She has a strong little neck and is holding her head up!
  • She naps for 30 minutes during the day unless we are out then I can sometimes get 2 hours. This is a little exhausting for mom. 
  • She is a lot fussier than Adler was. We think it has to do with acid reflux and not sleeping very well. She is still a happy girl but compared to Adler, she fusses so much more.
  • She recognizes her name and when she finds us she will give us a big smile!
  • She took her first road trip to New York for my family reunion. She did amazing in the car and loved meeting my family.
  • She also took her first boat ride and slept the whole time! 
  • She loves to splash around in a nice warm bath!

Ettley shows her emotions 100%. When she is happy she is beaming with joy. And when she is upset… look out! But the best part is seeing Adler and her together. They already have a very loving relationship and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
I love this picture!
Sibling love

That face



Oma and Opa came to visit and we loved every second! 

The iceberg exhibit at the building museum was pretty cool!

First trip to the lake house!

Pie night!
