2 Months Old!

Well, our little one is now two months old! She had her 2 month check up on January 24 and was still perfect! She weighed in at 12 pounds 9 ounces and was 23 1/2 inches, which put her in the 90% and 85% respectively. She is still a fabulous baby waking usually just once a night to eat. And she has been going to bed earlier. Last night she fell asleep about 9:00, and didn't wake up til 4:30! Aidan on the other hand has a cough and cold so I was up with him from 1:00 until I went to feed Ella at 4:30, and then she didn't go back to sleep til 5:30, and then Aidan got up at 6:00! Poor mommy! :)

We celebrated Daddy's birthday yesterday by going down to Des Moines to take him out to lunch. I think Daddy likes the little break in his day seeing the fam. Hopefully Daddy enjoyed his birthday! I had Aidan sing him "Happy Birthday" at lunch and he remembered it in the evening and kept singing it to Daddy. Very cute! We also had our annual birthday gathering in Iowa City last weekend to celebrate Aaron's birthday (January 30), Grandpa Van Sickel's birthday (February 2), and Grandpa Friedel's birthday (February 3). We had a great time getting together with everyone. It has become a fun family tradition - started 3 years ago when we got everyone together to announce the upcoming arrival of a little man named Aidan!

With the weather being so cold lately, I decided to bring in a little snow for Aidan to play with inside. He had a blast filling his dump truck with snow and using the little sand molds. On the one day it warmed up to around 50 degrees we went outside and he got to splash in puddles - which he thought was the best thing ever! Unfortunately I have no pictures of that as I was holding Ella. I thought we were going to take a walk around the block but he ended up just running back and forth on the sidewalk in front of our house. (We had very big puddles.)
