2 Months

I can't believe my baby girl is over 2 months old!!! We went to the doctor on her 2 month birthday and she weighed in at 13 lbs 10 oz (officially in 3-6 month clothes!) and 23.5 inches long! She is staying right along the 95th % for height and weight. A few days after she turned 2 months we left for her first plane ride! We went to St. Augustine for a week at the beach with my family, and my extended family who lives down there. Hannah did awesome on the plane ride! We got several compliments at how good she was. We had a great time at the beach as well! Hannah loved the water, but mostly sat under the shade sleeping or looking around. She took a few naps in her baby tent which was great! Mommy and Daddy had the chance to get in the water!!! I loved taking her pictures on the beach I grew up going to and at all the sites of St. Augustine that I've visited since I was a baby. Hannah also loved her time with her cousins and meeting all of my cousins and aunts and uncles. This week also marked the beginning of regularly sleeping 10 hours at night!!! It doesn't happen every night, but we are getting more and more consistent!!! We got home from the beach on Saturday and this week Hannah has been doing an awesome job at taking naps!! She still doesn't sleep very long, but has increased from 30 minutes to 45 minutes, and no fussing when laying her down!!! She likes to sit up all the time, and definitely thinks she is a big girl! It will be wonderful when she can sit up on her own so I don't have support her sitting all the time!!! She is much happier spending time not being held, which has really helped me get more things done and eat meals without a baby in my lap!!

The whole family, again, we missed Eric and Melissa a lot!!

The last full day of our trip, Hurricane Irene was off the coast of Florida creating some pretty rough surf. In the afternoon we got several sudden downpours, I'm guessing from the outer bands of the hurricane. Around 6 we were still hanging out on the beach when the biggest and worst downpour happened. We ran back to the condo (I had Hannah under my coverup and a towel wrapped around me) and then when the rain ended we saw this awesome double rainbow telling us the rain was over! It was so beautiful, and the first time I'd ever seen a rainbow over the ocean.
