At 8 weeks, Avonlea is giving us some great smiles! She is generally a very happy baby. She's still getting up at least once/night and is currently sleeping in her Rock & Play in her room. She seems to have a dry stuffy nose most of the time, but it doesn't seem to bother her much, just makes it a little harder to breathe sometimes.
She likes her swing and will lay on her back on the floor for a while if she has something/one to look at. She is great in the car seat and will generally sleep in it through whatever event we are going to (church...and hmmm...does she actually get to go anywhere else?)
We are grateful she's stayed healthy and as you can see in the pics, she's gaining weight like a champ. At her 2 month checkup, she weighed 12 lbs. 6 oz. (70%) and measured 23.5" (86%). She did NOT like her shots, but I am pro-vaccination and am grateful for the medical care we have available.
