Adalyn's 2 Month Update

It's hard for both of us to believe that Adalyn is already two months old.  I think we've been living in a time warp.  On one hand, it seems like we just had her yesterday and on the other hand, it feels like she has been a part of our lives forever.  We have had a very busy month, Aunt Jo and Uncle Alasdair spent the last four weeks with us.  It was great to have them here and Adalyn enjoyed meeting and cuddling with family, other than her parents. 

Adalyn is growing well.  She gained a little over 2 lbs last months and now weighs 9lbs 8oz.  She is still a long skinny baby but is eating up a storm and we can see where little chubby rolls are forming.  She is still a great sleeper waking a few nights per week for a quick feed and cuddle and then back to sleep.  We can't complain at all! 

Adi has found her smile and likes to join in to our conversations, often cooing at us when we talk to her.  She loves going for walks in the botanical gardens and is pretty happy in her favorite bouncy chair, which we have nicknamed the dookie chair.  It does the trick almost 90% of the time.  She still loves bath time with her daddy and her pool debut is coming soon.  She has had a few play dates this month with her friends.  Her first best friend, Ellie moved back to New Zealand and her newest friend, Amelie was born this month.  Adi also toured National Instruments to see where her daddy works and visited her first hawker center.  She's a social little baby.

We are looking forward to this month's milestones and spending time as a family of three. Enjoy our pictures!

She's Legit

Last week, Eric flew to KL for the day to collect Adalyn's Passport and Certificate of Birth Abroad.  Yes folks, she is officially and American Citizen!  Now to obtain her Malaysian Visa so she won't get deported from her home.  As soon as we get that Visa, Adi can start collecting stamps in her passport.  Hopefully she will have her first international flight in early August.  Fingers Crossed!

Here a couple of shots of Adalyn celebrating her first 4th of July.  She was very patriotic and had multiple costume changes!
Seriously, Mom.. you are going to dress me in that and take pictures??!!??
Adalyn and her best friend Ellie even matched.  (Note Ellie is 25% American and 75% Kiwi)
Matching girls!  Thanks Auntie Sharon!
