Happy 2 Month Birthday Baby!

By Lauren Hartmann |

Happy 2 month birthday Fern!

Fern turned two months last week and we had our monthly photo shoot.  She’s not a huge fan of the photo shoot, but the plus side is that she was sitting up much better during this month’s shoot than she did for last month’s shoot.

I’ve decided to document every month of Fern’s first year of life by doing a round up of my favorite photos from that month and taking her photo in front of our chalkboard and making a list of her likes and dislikes.  Here’s what we’ve learned that Fern likes and dislikes this month:

Fern likes:

*being held like a tree cat, *white noise, *shower time, *her sea horse Charlie Bubbles, *The “Good Morning” song and her morning stretches, *smiling, *sneaking peeks of Blazer games on TV with daddy

Fern dislikes:

*being posed for pictures (she freaked out before I managed to snap this one), *diaper time, *tummy time, *stop lights, *sleeping in her own room (we’re getting there though!)

See Fern’s best photos from her second month of life after the jump!

Fern's Two-Month Baby Update

Morning stretches

I love mornings with Fern. It seems to be her favorite time of day. We've started a tradition where I wake her up in the morning and bring her into my bed where she stretches and we sing songs and "chat". It's my favorite time of day now too.

    Oh gosh, I forgot how dreadful stop lights are. My nervous tick is setting back in just thinking about that. This is a great idea and such a cute photo

    The growth between 1 and 2 months is always so shocking to me. So much changes in that time frame!
