Happy 2 Month Birthday My Precious Lilibear


You are two months old today.  I have a feeling I'll be saying this every month, but wow how time has flown.  Yesterday night when Daddy and I were putting you to sleep I told him I don't know how we lived without you!  You are a part of this family now and it is perfect, absolutely perfect.

Your second month started with what we feared last month...your hair on the top of your head just fell out!  It was the saddest yet cutest little thing I've ever seen!  It's starting to grow back more so your mullet is fortunately going away some. You also developed some cradle cap so we called Uncle Danny, our favorite and free pediatrician, and he told us to put some baby oil on their for 15 minutes.  We did that, but then you got acne!  Oh, we just couldn't figure things out!!  But, eventually within a week, it was all ok and we stressed out needlessly (that's what parents do Lilibear, just get used to it).  Somehow though, through all of this, you stayed as the cutest baby of ALL TIME.

You are a fan of just sitting there hanging out with Daddy!
It was July when you were 2 months and I realize I have you in a jacket, but it wouldn't have fit otherwise...sorry Liliana!  I promise I turned up the air conditioner, but you looked too cute to pass it up.

You had a month of firsts too: you cooed on your Uncle Danny's birthday for the first time, you smiled and continue to smile pretty often (especially when Mommy talks to you), AND had your first laugh today.  Now this topic just breaks my heart, because thanks to the stupid freaking bar exam, I missed your laugh.  You see Mommy has been studying until about 3 in the morning every night because it's when you're quietest so it's the best time to get work done.  And in the morning, you were asleep and Daddy and Grammy heard you laugh.  They said it was just plain adorable.  I can't wait to hear it over and over again.

You adore your mobile.  I'm not surprised...your Daddy chose this mobile just especially for you.  When we put you to bed, you just look at the lights projected on the mobile over and over again.  Whenever the music stops or the lights stop, you immediately start crying, so we've figured out that we just press that button over and over again to ensure you stay entertained.

You were taken care of by so many wonderful people this month while Mommy continued to study for her bar: Tata was here for two weeks and took you out for a 45 minute walk every single day.  Daddy took care of you the next week and you were a complete joy for him.  He adores you more than he ever thought possible.  In fact, you're too good Liliana...Daddy wants us to have a million siblings for you.  Yikes!  Then, this last week you had Grammy come take care of you.  She shows you toys and you just look at them and even try to grab them already!  Everyone has loved spending time with you and Mommy just can't thank them enough for their help.  They have been life savers, but you know what?  I'm pretty darn positive that they love every second of their time with you.  Who wouldn't?

 We got so many sweet packages in the mail from family and this was one of our favorite outfits.
Everyone already adores you...I don't blame them.

As for sleeping, you're becoming a pro slowly but surely.  Of course, we've had some rougher nights, but that's because you're a baby!  Fortunately though, you've gone seven hours between feedings a few times and you're averaging about five and a half to six hours between feedings every night.  Thank you for doing that!  I hope this trend continues and continues. 

You definitely gained weight this month and when you don't get your food you SCREAM.  I mean, SCREAM as loud as you can.  You're like your love your food!  We figure you're probably about 13 pounds now, but since you were born a month early, you're doing more than fine.  You have pretty much outgrown all your newborn clothes and fit in most of your 0 - 3 month outfits.  Today, you're in a 3 - 6 month outfit!! Oops!

Those long beautiful eyelashes are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.  I just can't believe how wonderful you are.  Having you is, by far, my greatest accomplishment.  Thank you for being our daughter.  You have enriched our lives more than we ever thought possible.  We can't believe how beautiful and how smart you are!! You are such a smart little baby!  Did you like all these pictures that Mommy put in this post?  I just wanted you to see how cutie you are.  I love you Liliana Rose.

 Look at you doing the Gig 'em sign...
you must have been dreaming about going to games at Kyle Field!  

Every evening when your Daddy puts you to bed (and every evening when I was pregnant), he tells you the same thing:  "I love you more than all the stars in the sky and more than all the fish in the sea.  You're a perfect baby girl."

Love you and I can't wait can't wait can't wait to finally spend every waking moment with you when this bar exam is done!  It'll be just you and me girl (well and EVERYONE else in San Antonio since we'll be there for the month while Daddy does his rotation with Urology). 


  1. Awww...this is so sweet, I loved it! Your daughter is so beautiful:)

    As for the cradle cap, try Aquaphor next time...let it sit on for 15 minutes, then come off the cradle cap with a fine tooth comb!

  2. She's so cute! I love babies in jeans :)

  3. Your letters are better than mine... but I have better pictures, so we'll call it a draw. Next month is going to stink because you get to be with her all day while I'm gone. I'm going to miss so much! You'll just have to keep me posted love.

  4. This is so sweet! I love all the adorable pictures, especially the first one where she's just chillaxing with her dad :-).

  5. How adorable is she, so precious congratulations. I want to thank you for your kind words from Lady Bloggers. Your husband will go on to help people in far worse need then me. Please tell him I said thank you as well for all he is doing. Much respect to you both. I have followed you as I want to see such a beautiful baby grow up. Thank you for your heartfelt comments. I am going to update more frequently as I never knew this but my words helped people. This award/feature was a shock. It is people like you, friend, who made my day.
