2 months of Brighton + a video!


 Blury iphone picture but I loveeee it!!



Our Brighton girl is 2 months already. Like what? HOW? It really does feel like it flew by so quickly! I never thought I'd do these posts where I give an update on her growth and such but I LOVE reading them on other peoples' blogs/posts so here I am, updating away. I had this idea a few weeks ago to do a video to show her growth and expressions instead of just a picture so I plan to do one every month! I thought of it at 6 weeks so I didn't get to do a 1 month one. I used to do videography back in high school, making random movies and music videos and took a few classes so I think it will be fun to get back into doing these little videos :) We'll see if I stay diligent haha

So here it goes with dem stats-

Baby girl is 11.8 lb and 23 (and a 1/4)" long! I am 99% sure she will be taller than Jason and I. We both have tall genes but are both not super tall so it looks like we may have passed it onto B!

She is in 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers still.

She is a genius (duh).

She is the smiliest person on this whole entire planet and every smile KILLS me. She smiles EVERY time I lay her down to take a nap and she totally knows it's my weakness. I literally have to try so hard to not pick her back up and waltz on over to my bed to nap with her every time because I can't handle how much I love her and miss her while she naps. Obviously I do my fair share of setting her down and then regretting it and napping with her haha but I know it's not the best habit to make so I try to be strong. BUT IT IS HARD. She smiles at everything and mostly everyone.

She has started to giggle a little! I try harder to make her giggle than I tried to get good grades in college. She's giggled a few times and it is also the cutest thing in the world. I can't wait until giggling is an everyday thing!!

We have staring contests every 5 seconds and she always wins.

The past few nights when I've sang to her (twinkle twinkle is our #1 jam) she started to SING with me! It freaking killed me. I'd sing and she'd start holding notes aka singing aka she's perfect. She has also started talking a ton! Baby talking, of course. Sometimes when I put her down for naps, she keeps herself up just talking and cooing.

She can hold her head up like it's her job. She isn't perfect at it yet, but she is getting there! We put her in the bumbo for a minute and she was able to sit up and be fine in it.

She sleeps about 7.5-9.5 hours a night, it's been getting to longer stretches and it's the best! But since I'm breastfeeding, my body isn't used to going that long without feeding her and usually I wake up first with milk ready to spill out and wait for her to wake up. TMI? probs.

That's all I can think of right now! She is our world and Jason and I are pretty equally obsessed with her and yell each others names to COME QUICK whenever she's doing something cute (which is actually always) We love you B! As much as it makes me sad that she has to grow, it also makes me so excited to see her grow, develop, and show off her sweet personality! I always joke with J that I'm ready to have another baby because I love this mom thing so much!

  7. Cherish every day, because you'll blink and she'll be two! I look back on these posts and remember when I was pregnant and how I loved feeling little one move around in my belly. Gives me totally baby fever! haha It never slows down, if anything, from here on out will be full speed ahead!
