Happy Friday! Sadie here ... I'm back with my Weekly Updates.
First, I wanted to share a few photos with you from my 2 Month Birthday:

I've been smiling for several weeks now, but this may be the first smiling photo I've posted!
Mommy said this is about the time I started looking like her Butterball. Which is better than looking like her chicken leg?
All of a sudden ... I look HUGE in my Super Rocker!
Sadie's Week 11 Update:
First, I had my 2 month appt (on 1/4/13 because of the holidays - so a little late). I weighed 11.6, and I was 23 inches!
Height: 23 inches
Health: I am as healthy as can be ...! She said I was about average for weight and height. What else happened at the doctor? Weight, height, the doc checked me out ... she said I could roll over at any time and by about my next appt (4 months) - I will be using my hands purposefully. Well, what do you think I am doing with them NOW? I also had (if Mommy and I remember correctly) - four shots!
And Mommy, Daddy, and Brother came along for my 2 month appt ... we all told Max this doc appt was not for him. Well, it turns out the doc said she could fit Max's appt in since his birthday is 1/7 (so we didn't have to come back). Well, how about that! ... Anyone want to guess his height and weight? More on that soon! Poor Max also had to have shots. "Owie boo boo" he calls them. (By the way, this is also the FIRST time that Max got to stand on the big boy scaled at the doc to be weighed.)
Sleep: During the day, I'm doing much better with staying awake for "activity" time. I don't have a consistent nap time yet, but I do well with sleeping where ever the crazy people put me.
Night time... off and on, I am doing much better. Some nights are fussy at the beginning for about an hour or so. I usually sleep and sleep and sleep until I wake up to eat (or Mommy wakes me up to feed her before she goes to sleep). I sleep in my bed most of the night, and then in the last few hours of the night I sleep with Mommy.
I usually only wake 1x or 2x to eat (although Mommy says I should be down to zero times ... the doc says I can still wake though since I'm breast fed).
Diet: Mommy's Milk
Social: (This header is new, I am adding this in ...) This was a very social week for me. I got to meet all KINDS of people at Max's 2nd Birthday Party.
On Sunday, I went to Discovery Green for the first time with Mommy, Daddy, and Max. On Monday, I went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science and Niko Niko's Downtown for the first time to celebrate Max's Birthday. Thursday I went with Mommy and Max and her friend V to run errands, out to eat, and to City Centre. And then today (Friday), I went to the Dairy Ashford Rollerskating Rink for Tot time. I also met Mommy's friend L and her son, D.
Clothes: My outfit here is from my Tia Tam (from Target). I am officially in 3 month clothes or 3 - 6 month clothes. Some of the ones that are 3 - 6 months are still kind of big.
Baby Gear: I still do not do a whole lot so there is not a lot to report here. Do you have any questions about your baby gear for 0 - 12 months? We'll be sure to think of something and report on one of my new toys (or something!) for our next posting. We have a lot of friends that are having babies soon ... so I'm sure they have questions!
Crying: Not too much as changed. I still sometimes cry in my sleep, or I need to cry myself to sleep. I also sometimes cry when I need soothed or lose my paci. I'm a baby!
Likes: I LOVE smiling and talking a lot now! I mainly talk after Mommy feeds me. That is my favorite time to talk. I also really like when my brother sings to me.
Postpartum: From Mommy - I return to work on Monday (DREAD) ... 12 weeks already? I think 12 weeks is way too early. We are moving to another country! I could easily be a stay at home Mom. I will miss my babies a ton! I love spending each and every minute with them, exploring new things with them, and going out and about around the city with them each day. It's time to start counting down to summer! Luckily, they are in good hands with the Grandmas. I feel much better about that (especially Sadie since she is itty bitty).
Other than that... I think I ate my own body weight for the holidays, so I started (slowly) getting into an exercise routine. I look forward to joining the Y soon too.
Milestones: I feel like everything is so new for me (Sadie here)! My first birthday party (my brother's). Several first outings and meeting new people this week. I also started talking a LOT coo coooo.
What is Max Up To This Week?:
His Birthday Week!
