Avery's 2nd Month

My Punkin-doodle you are 2 months old! This month was an exciting one for you. You spent a week in Oklahoma for Uncle Daniel and Aunt April's wedding then spent a week in New Mexico meeting Nana and Grandpa Harrelson. You were one little trooper!

2nd Month Milestone's - 7/4/10

Height - 22 1/4 inches
Weight - 9 lbs 5 oz
Sleeping - You nap for 1.5 to 2 hours during the day after eating and playing, and 5 to 7 hours at night.
Eating - You eat every 3 to 4 hours during the day and usually only wake once to eat at night.
New discoveries - You love your baths. You even cried a few time when I took you out. You hate having your nose suctioned. It takes me and Daddy to get it done. You finally are taking a paci. We didn't think you ever would. But after finally getting the "right" one, you took it. Mommy was glad - it gave you something to soothe you while Mommy and Daddy were occupied with the wedding.
New accomplishments - You slept for 7 hours straight! You learned to take your paci and a bottle.
Places you went - We spent a week in Oklahoma for Daniel and April's wedding. You did so good! Auntie Tiffany went with us and got to spoil you along with Nonna and Poppa. You also took your first airplane trip to El Paso with us at 8 weeks. You did so good! We gave you a bottle on the way up and you slept on the way down. We had a good visit with Nana & Grandpa Harrelson, cousin Caleb, Aunt Kristi and cousin Bella. Mommy got sick with a bad sinus infection and Aunt Kristi, Nana, and Daddy did a great job of taking care of you so Mommy could rest. You did end up with congestion too and we had to suction your nose (which you hate).  On our flight home, we were diverted to Austin because of storms and despite being exhausted, you did great on the plane.
Special Memories - You got dubbed the honorary flower girl title for Daniel and April's wedding. :) Daddy celebrated his first Father's Day.

Avery Marie - we have had the pleasure of being your parents for 2 months now and absolutely love it! We're still working on getting this whole schedule thing down, but you have been doing great with being flexible. I just love getting to see you grow and change. You are so loved! All our family and friends have showered you with lovin's whenever you are around. We are so proud to be your parents! Love you baby girl!

She is adorable!! Love all the posts and updates! Cant believe its all going by so fast! You asked about working from home with River.. I don't know.. Its good & bad. there are days I think I need to quit my job and that it will never work and other days that I think its manageable. We are starting to look at day care though because I have a lot of phone calls & conference calls and just cant have him talking in the background (which he does now) it will be hard I'm sure but we'll figure it out. I would choose working from home over being in an office but I would never say that its easy or ideal. I'm not sure if I answered your questions or not.. let me know if there is something specific that will help! Brooke
