2 Months

Oakley just had her 2 month check up today. She was such a good girl when they gave her the shots. I love this kid!!

2 month stats
10 lbs 11 ounces - 40th percentile
22 in.  - 29th percentile
38 cm head circum - 27th percentile

She has gained what she weighed at birth in 2 months! Hahah she's a chunker!! She only
eats for like 5-10 minutes and throws half it up with her lame acid reflux so I was shocked she is gaining so fast! Doc says she's just a very efficient eater. I'm one proud momma!

She's starting to smile!

So I don't know if I would call it actually running these days or just jogging? Everyone keeps asking me if I am going stir crazy staying home as a mom. Are you kidding me???!! I have never been so busy in my life! This is a full time job and I commend all mothers, espeically those who have more than 1 and still manage to run, jog, workout, etc.... I have still managed to go to my addiction in life, Pump Class, because Greg knows he is "parenting" every Monday and Wednesday nights. Running or "jogging" on the other hand has been a little harder these days. Because Greg watches Oak on Monday's and Wednesday's, he gets Tuesday and Thursday to hit the gym. Yes..... I could go to the gym when he gets home but I HATE the treadmill and by that time of night I have no motivation left in me! Oh how I miss just hitting the road any time I want. Luckily the weather got above 40 degrees outside a few times last week and once this week where I was able to run outside with Oakley and the "B.OB", which by the way is amazing! And trust this point I will run in any weather, but I think someone would call child protective services if they saw me with my stroller running in 20 degree weather with a newborn. But relying on the weather is getting to be a pain in the ars. For example...planned on centering my day around a run, but nope, woke up to more snow! I have never craved running so bad in my life as I am right now! Please....please mother nature give us some warm weather so I can be myself again.

This is lil Oakers' running attire!

 So happy to be running outside

She loves running! Puts her right to sleep!

Nelly + Oakley = B.F.F

Nelly has become so protective of Oakley. She always has to be lying right next to her. When Oakley is crying in her crib, Nelly runs in there and acts like she wants to help her or something. I can not wait until Oakley is a little bigger and can play with Nelly. I just know they will be best friends!

All You Need Is LOVE

We decided to celebrate Valentines Day over the weekend since the day of is just rediculous everywhere you go. Plus let's be honest, I wanted to go to my Pump class on Monday night!!! Greg won a night stay at Little America in Salt Lake, so we decided to make it a family sleepover to celebrate our love as a new family. Oakley was such a trooper and did so good being out of her element for the first time!

We went to Macaroni Grill for dinner....

I came to the hotel a little unprepared, so I had to borrow Greg's clothes. We went down to the Coffee Shop Restaurant in the hotel for dessert after we got back from some shopping in park city. I think I looked pretty sexy!

Oakley was in her car seat alot this weekend, but she loved every minute of it!

My first Valentines Day!!! Love Oakley

Oakley's Favorite Things

Oakley is 7 weeks today! Time has just flown by! Love this girl! Here are some of her favorite things in life, so far:

Bath time! Especially afterwards when she is bundled up nice and warm in her robe. ( I'm pretty jealous of her robe.)

When daddy walks around with her in the baby bjorn

The bunny swing! She has to have her nuk with the swing. It goes hand in hand!

The bouncer......the killer for us on this one is she dosn't just like it to vibrate we have to bounce it too. I put it on the floor of the bathroom while I'm getting ready and bounce it with my foot as I dry my hair and do my make-up. Can we say spoiled!

If you can't tell, Oakley is just loving life! More to come......
