I feel like over the last two weeks Raina has become a real baby and has lost nearly all of her new-baby-ness. It is so much fun! She smiles and coos and happily stays awake for close to an hour now just looking around and waving her dimpled little fists in the air. We are so in love with her it's not even funny.
This month she started rolling from her belly to her back for the first time and now we have to be very careful where we put her down. I'm not ready for the mobile stage, haha. I was taking her two month pictures and when I tried to get some picks of her on her belly she just kept rolling over. Then I tried to video her rolling over and she wouldn't, of course.
She had her first bonfire over labor day weekend but slept through most of it in the K'tan with my sister. Speaking of the k'tan, which I love, I'm thinking of also picking up a ring sling soon for her, since she's just like Riggs and doesn't enjoy being confined in the k'tan unless she's sleeping. I don't think she likes being pressed up against me, she wants to look around! So I think the ring sling would be perfect for that. Plus who am I kidding, they're so gorgeous and are kind of like a weird fashion accessory too. I love this gorgeous blue Sakura Bloom version, here.
Raina is growing, but not nearly as fast as Riggs did (see a comparison of their stats, here). Especially not her feet. I don't think they've grown at all in the last month, so tiny! Tiny 0-3m shoes are big on her. Her size 1 moccs can easily be kicked off. As much as I adore her narrow little feet, I want them to groooowwww, because I have so many cute little shoes for her to wear!
|feet in middle are this month, cutout feet are at one month. no growth at allllll.|
We've settled into life with two kids remarkably well, and I can't imagine life without our sweet baby girl in it. She is such a happy little thing, and loves to watch whatever we are doing with a sweet smile on her face.
