The Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend, we went to the Pumpkin Patch to pick some pumpkins...

The girls and I... We could not get Lucy to look at the camera because the sun was so bright.

On the hay ride...

She got one.

Headed home with our pumpkins.

Happy Fall :)

Two-Month Doctor Visit

Today, we had Alice's two-month check-up...

In case you can't tell from the pictures, little Alice has grown. She now weighs 10 lbs. and 6 oz. Just to give you an idea, Lucy weighed 10 lbs. and 5 oz. at her two-month check-up, and Lucy weighed a whole pound more at birth. So, yeah, Alice is definitely caught-up! She is also 22 inches long. 

We also weighed Lucy while we were there (why not?), and she now weighs 25 lbs. During Alice's appointment, Lucy wore latex gloves and "assisted" the nurses. I wish I had gotten pictures. We think Lucy would make a great pediatrician one day.

Two Months

Our sweet, little Alice is two months old! She has started smiling, cooing, and focusing on faces...

We don't know how much she weighs (her two-month check-up is next week), but we guess about 7.5 pounds. She has already outgrown her newborn clothes, and she is working on some adorable baby rolls. 

At two months, Alice likes...
- her big sister
- her swing
- riding in the stroller
- being swaddled

- when mama eats dairy
- pacifiers

These sisters are the cutest.

 Lucy started school this week. She was so excited...

When I asked her about school, she told me that she...
- "Played on the playground."
- "Played with friends."
- "Read books."
- "Learned about Noah." (Me: "What did Noah do?" Lucy: "He built a BIG boat!")
- "Played with paint."

When I showed up to pick her up from her first day of school, she did not want to leave! I guess it was a success.

Alice's Newborn Pictures

When Alice was about one week old, M's friend Dan came and took some lovely photos of our family. We wanted them to feel really natural, to capture our daily happenings. We tried not to stage anything, and most of the photos are candid. I love how they turned out! Here's a little peek...

We are so thankful to Dan for being so generous with his time and gifts. And we are so thankful that little Alice is a part of our lives... It feels like she always has been. I can't believe she will be two months old soon! What in the world.

Labor Day Weekend

Over Labor Day weekend, M's parents came to Denver for a visit. They got to meet Alice for the first time, which was so special.

On Labor Day, we attempted a hike with the whole family, including six-week-old Alice. She slept through the entire thing.

The whole fam, including my cousin Kate who was also in Denver for the weekend!

Lucy got the best seat.

It was so refreshing and wonderful to spend time with family. We miss them already!

One Month

Our sweet little Alice Pearl is one month old! It feels like the time has flown...

Here are some things to know about Alice at one month...
- We have not had her weighed since her two-week doctor's appointment, but we guess she weighs about seven pounds. She is growing so fast! Some of her little newborn clothes are already getting a little snug.
- Alice is finally nursing! Hooray! No more pumping for me. She finally got the hang of it after about three weeks. 
- Alice's temperament is very calm and sweet. She loves to snuggle. 

- the play mat
- her big sister
- snuggles
- tummy time
- baths

- diaper changes
- hiccups
- being left alone 

A lot of people have asked us who Alice looks like. She does not look much like her big sister, Lucy. My parents say she looks a lot like me when I was a baby. I'll let you decide for yourselves...
