the last couple of weeks

Even though I havent blogged regularly during these times, I have done my best to document what Tess has been up to and learning.... here we go.

9 weeks
Tess is making TONS of noise these days.... loud abrupt squeals and coos
she is coo-ing a lot now.... (coo's consist of vowel sounds)
listening to her explore her voice and sounds is so stinkin adorable!

her neck is getting stronger and stronger
had her first night of sleep in weeks without her swaddle.... she looked like she was about to roll over in that thing and not be able to roll we nixed it.

almost 11 weeks
Tess is loving her feet! Like thinks they are the coolest!

her is some lame video of her feet finding the cool sounding plastic on her stroller. she has been at it for hours.
swaddle is completely nixed and we are loving her newly lengthened sleep time of 8:30-4:30 or 5:30 in the morning. she eats at that point and goes straight back to sleep until 7-8.

she is a smiley little peanut! she is getting good at focusing on our faces and finding the person who she hears talking and looking at them.

2 month pictures

check out this big girl!!!

two month appointment

the video footage kinda breaks your heart.... but know she really did a great job!!

so besides getting three shots we found out some new info about Tess

Weight 9.84 oz. she is in the 18%
Height 22 3/4 inches. that means she has grown 2 inches since born and is in the 76%

Tess did such a good job yesterday at the Dr's, she literally only cried during the shots, and then as soon as they were given she was a happy camper again.

since her shots she has been VERY tired.... a bit on the fussy side (poor girl)

her two month photo in the flower chair will be posted shortly:)

here are some of those smiles I was telling you about.

8 weeks

still dont know how to make pictures taken with my phone bigger on the blog....ugh!

Tess has been smiling for over a week now..... I new she was getting close! she is actually smiling in response to us which is so fun and cute!!

her hair is falling out and she has this major balding look going on... you know, the kinda of balding that looks like she has a ring around her head!

she continues to make more noises, new squeals and sighs.... ohhhh melts my heart!:)

we go to the Doctor next monday so I am eager to see what her 2 month stats are.

Mothers day was lovely, spent with my sisters and none other than my amazing mom:) we stayed up late, had a picnic, went on a walk around the lake, ate a delicious dinner saturday night made by Chef Emily, and had to die for dessert. Mother's day weekend was simply wonderful, and not to be rude but I am pretty sure I got the best mothers day gift this year.... :) her name rhymes with Bessa.

Tess had some visitors today... our friend Melissa came over with 2 out of 3 of her cutie pie kids.
