Jules is 2 Months Old

Not to totally be overshadowed by Big Sister...Jules turned 2 months old on Jillian's second birthday! It is truly amazing that the time with Jules is going so quickly! I feel like we were just pregnant and counting down the days until she made her grand appearance...and now here she is all big and 2 months old! Seth and I wish we could freeze time and have them both stay this age forever because they are so sweet and innocent and FUN! But, we must just watch them keep growing!

Jules is still a very good baby. She is definitely awake more and more and prefers to be held during this time. I have been working really hard to get her used to other places besides being in someone's arms! We rotate between the swing, papasan, her bed, and the pack and play! She is doing pretty good in these places, so I always reward her with a nice nap in my arms! She is sleeping pretty good at night too. I feed her for the last time around 10 each night, and she will sleep until about 4. She then eats and goes right back down until 7. I consider that pretty good. I know Jillian got up 2 times a night, at least...so this is great for us!

Jules is smiling all the time now...especially right after she eats! She loves to stare at big sister...and Jillian really can keep her entertained for a few minutes! This comes in handy as I am trying to work out at home...and Jules always seems to want my attention during my work out. I can get Jillian to lean down and talk to her...and this buys me some extra time!

I have really enjoyed watching the girls interact with eachother..and I can only imagine all the fun we are going to have watching our two girls grow up together! Jules is such a blessing to us and she really makes our World complete around here!

Here are some pictures of Jules in the last couple of weeks...just being sweet Jules!


Jules at 2 months old


For comparison purposes...here is Jillian at 2 months


Here I was trying to take Jillian's 2 year picture, and she insisted that Baby get in the picture with her.


Big Girl...Big Bow. My Dad thinks this looks like a 20's showercap! Look at that belly...she is really growing fast!!!


Jules passed out and sleeping with her arms above her head...just like Big Sister used to do


Her face right after I took the first picture. I know I would hate to be woken up by someone taking my picture!


One day she was napping on my bed, and I came in and found these little guys sticking out the bottom of her blanket. This is funny to me because My Dad and I both CANNOT stand to have our feet in the covers. We both sleep with our feet outside the blankets...no matter how hot or cold it is! I have found Jules like this a couple of times...so maybe she is carrying on our tradition!

Again...take a look at that double chin...have you ever seen anything cuter? I am telling you, that is the softest skin that she has! LOVE IT! Also...she gets that bedhead from her Daddy too!

I am in love with her double chin, you know this...it's so soft...I felt myself "petting" it at the party last weekend!!! Fast forward 28 years and she wouldnt so much like that, me thinks. ;)

That picture of her feet poking out of the covers is so sweet! It takes me back a year to read your blog--I'm not sure if I realized before that your girls are not only the exact age difference of mine, but the same ages mine were. I remember doing Maggie's 2 month checkup the same day I did Will's 2 year. You have such good times ahead!!!
