Two Months!

March 28th, 2006

Eleanor is already two months old! Okay, technically she’s eight weeks today. But who’s counting?

And I can’t believe how much new stuff she is doing. First of all, she is far more aware of her surroundings than ever before. Consequently, she is fascinated with simple moving objects, preferably ones that play music. Such as mobiles! Observe:
Eleanor has also become much more aware of her mouth. She blows cute little spit bubbles and like to explore her lips with her tongue. She’ll often make fun clicking noises while doing so. And most exciting, she’s discovered that she can put her own fingers in her mouth and suck on them! There is nothing like watching her derive such pure satisfaction from munching on her hands. And it’s noisy too, which I think she also enjoys. I’ll try to get a video clip.

As you can see from the latest pictures, Ellie has finally been putting on some real weight. She’s a little chubster! We’re not sure exactly how much she weighs right now, but she’s going back to the doctor next week. We’ll let you know.

Baby, Family

    The oldest trick in the book is for one of you to get on the scale alone. See what you weigh. Then get on the scale holding Eleanor. See what the two of you weigh. Subtract your weight alone from the together weight and what’s left is all Eleanor’s!

    Again – very old trick – and not to scientifice precision – but close enough.

    She’s still adorable!

    Thanks, PJ!

    Actually we do know that trick. But we only have a tiny, unreliable bathroom scale. Sure, we could get a rough estimate…. but I think we decided to wait and be surprised!
