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

Dislikes...
- when mama eats dairy
- pacifiers


These sisters are the cutest.

School


 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!
