Happy 2 months, Addie!

Well, folks... our baby girl is 2 months old! :)
Addie has had a busy few days!  She has been rockin' out on the bottle!  She is almost finished with her two month vaccinations, and, as you can see from this picture below, she passed her car seat test!

 We were so excited to see her in her car seat when we got to the hospital on Sunday!  She looks so tiny in that big ole thing!

Keep in mind that she has the "snuzzler" inside of the seat, and she still has a while to go before she fills it completely!  Sweet little thing...

 She's practicing her peek-a-boo skills. :)

Addie weighs 5 pounds, 5 1/4 ounces now!  I love this picture of her little diaper booty!  That is a preemie diaper even though it looks more like Depends. :) This was actually the day before her birthday, and she weighed 5 lbs, 4 1/2 oz. that day.

Addie is 18 1/2 inches long, too!  Here's a great shot of her all stretched out on the scale!  She has crazy hair... Mommy had just given her a bath. :)

 Here is the little angel on the scale next to her 2 month sign!  It's fun to see how much she's grown since her 1 month old pictures! :)

Addie is eating 40 mLs of Mommy's milk every three hours.  She's been taking all bottles for the past few days (which is a big deal!).  She is very close to coming home... we are praying she continues moving in the right direction this week!

Addie is still very, VERY adorable! :)  This is one of my favorite outfits!  The good news is that it's a newborn sized outfit!  She has outgrown some of her preemie clothes... sniff! sniff! :( ...so we've moved on up to some newborn clothes!  I am very glad she's growing so well, but I am kinda sad that she'll never be that small again. :(

Sweet Addie,
You are the light of our lives, precious girl!  We have loved watching you grow and learn so much in just your short two months.  We can see your personality coming to life, and it is so sweet!  You make us smile every single day!  Hopefully, we'll be rocking you in our arms at our house soon!  You're going to LOVE your room! :)
We love you more than you'll ever know!
Mommy and Daddy

Such exciting news!! She is such a beautiful little girl. Addie is so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends and a loving God to watch over her. She will be home soon--I just know it. Praise God!
