We celebrated our first Christmas as a family of three this year. She is such a little blessing to our family, and Christmas was much more fun having her around. We were able go back to Utah to spend time with family for 2 1/2 weeks. Lacey was able to meet all of her grandparents (she has 6). This year, Christmas was really laid back. Lacey is too small to really understand much about Christmas or presents. The fact that we traveled by plane also limited how "big" our Christmas could be. 
Great Grandma and Grandma (My mom and her mom)
Lacey loved her cousin Tyler
Grandpa (My dad)
Uncle Jason and cousin Rayne
Nana Cat
Aunt Kelci and Uncle Matt
Uncle Bryce (He kept kissing her forehead, so cute)
First Christmas
Grandma (Scott's mom)
Lacey was a trooper on both flights, the only time she cried was when we were going through security on the sway home. 

We did our own little Christmas for Lacey when we got home because we didn't have the space to bring anything to Utah for her to "open"

A few traditions:

Every year growing up, I remember making gingerbread houses with my mom. She would let each of the kids in my family invite a few friends over and we would each build our own gingerbread house. My mom would spend days baking the gingerbread and cutting it the houses for our parties.  Now that all of us are adults, it has been a few years since we have gotten together to build houses. Since we are starting to have kids of our own, my mom decided to start doing the party again for the grandkids.

Scott's family always does new Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve. It was fun having Lacey and her cousins all get the same jammies.

2 months

Two Months

Two Month Stats:

Height: 21.5 inches (9th percentile)
Weight: 8 lb 11 oz (2nd percentile)
Head: 38.5 cm (54th percentile)

Clothes: Newborn onesies still fit her great, but all of the pajamas with feet on them are too short for her and she can't extend her legs all the way.

Sleep: She usually will sleep 4-5 hours in the first stretch, and then usually wakes up every 2 hours to eat until we are up for the day. Luckily she usually eats and then goes right back to sleep.

Milestones: She started smiling all the time this past month, and we even got to hear her laugh a couple times. She has started trying to bat at objects, but we aren't really sure if it is intentional or not. She loves eye contact and smiles at us when she sees us.

Firsts this month:
  • She laughed for the first time just a couple weeks ago. It seriously was the best sound that I have ever heard. (I might have even cried a little)
  • She had her first Christmas.
  • She went on her first flight. 
  • She went to her first gingerbread house party.

  • Her momma, she is definitely a mommy's girl
  • Nursing to sleep
  • Being held while sleeping
  • Her hands, they are always in her mouth, even when she is trying to eat
  • Smiling at her mommy and daddy
  • Getting kisses all day long from her mommy and daddy
  • Getting her diaper changed, she is usually all smiles when we change her
  • Her swing, she follows the monkey mobile around and around with her eyes
  • The sound of the shower, which is great for me!
  • Getting dressed
  • Being in her car seat
  • Letting her mom eat without holding her
