Back to Crafting

I made these for my cousin Kelly's baby Raegan before Sophie was born.

I sewed yesterday for this first time since her arrival. Goodness, I have missed it. I am not going to share what I've done though until they are finished ;) Suprises for my new nephews!!

Sophie's 2 Months

I took Sophie to her 2 month well baby check up yesterday. It is hard to believe that 2 months have already gone by. She is still a sleepy baby, she will sleep between 5 and 6 hours at night, sometimes I wonder if she is real. I totally had myself prepared for a screaming baby who never slept. Instead I got one I had to wake up to feed.

She has started smiling and absolute favorite! She loves to look at Leify, and is doing fairly well holding her head up. She wakes me up in the morning with sweet little coo's to her pooh mobile.

She was in the 50th percentile straight across....Weight at 10lbs 7oz, Height at 22 1/2 inches, I can't remember what her head circumference was but I know she was in the 50th.

Christmas 2009

Christmas this year was quiet! We enjoyed the morning as a small little family at home and opened presents. We made the mistake of putting a matchbox car in Leify's stocking and he of course opened that first...he didn't care about anything else after that! If only he would be that easy to please for the rest of his Christmases at home! .99 cents is easy!
We headed into my parents later that day and enjoyed some awesome food! That is a given though, my Mom couldn't make something gross if her life depended on it. We exchanged gifts and played cards.
Christmas had a golf theme this year, I was the only person there who didn't get something golf related. Leif is adamant that I golf with him though, so I am sure I will get outfitted in the near future ;)

Blessing Day

Anna Sophia was given a name and blessing today at church. Leif gave her an absolutely beautiful blessing. He amazes me sometimes with his sincerity, he has such an overwhelming love for his children. Sophie is such a gorgeous and sweet baby, her temperament is a lot like Leify. Both of them are very quiet, but extremely aware of their surroundings and a little particular in what they do and do not like.
Oh, and if you didn't notice, she looks exactly like her Daddy! I just can' t compete with the Hasselblad DNA.
Sophie is gaining weight like a champ, and has a sleep schedule pretty much mapped out. She goes to bed around 8 or 9 and sleeps until about 330am eats, goes right back to sleep and then is up for the morning around 7. I can't complain; she has been a peach.
Her personality is starting to emerge, she is always smiley around 6 o'clock at night. Leify loves to get down on her play mat with her when she is having tummy time, and man, she loves him! He always gets big smiles and occasionally she even coos at him.
We feel so blessed to be the parents of these two beautiful little souls. They teach me so much, and continually improve me as an individual. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has entrusted me with such an important task as raising these children.
