Little Hands

Isabel discovered she has hands! She spends most of the day sucking on them or playing with them. When she is sleepy she rubs her eyes and nose, it's so cute!
We had a little photo session today. My grandma wants pictures of Isabel, so I dressed her in the outfits my grandma made and took lots of pictures. You can see them on flickr ( My grandmas don't have a computer so I'll be sending pictures in the mail. It's so weird, I feel like I don't even know how to do that anymore: printing pictures, putting them in an envelope, writing the address, going to the post office... I love digital cameras and the internet! (sorry the video is in Portuguese)

We made it!!!

I can't believe how fast our little one is growing... she is two months old today! She is now 22.5 inches tall and weighs 10 pounds 3 ounces, 75% for her height (let's hope she keeps it up!) and 50% for her weight. The doctor said she looks great, and we are doing great job. He said we are ready for a second child (yeah, right!). She also got her shots today, which she didn't enjoy very much, but she got over it quickly enough.
Mike and I are also doing good. We are more used to being parents now, and are truly enjoying watching Isabel grow.
Oh, before I forget... thanks to those who already sent me their family picture, I really appreciate it. Now those who haven't yet, I'll give you a couple more weeks, but after that, you already know what's going to happen!

Coughs and Giggles

This last week has been a little difficult for us. Both Mike and I were sick, and now it seems like Isabel finally got sick too. She did fight it for a long time (considering I've been sick for over 2 weeks now), but she is getting a cold too. We had her first official doctor's visit today (not including well-baby visits).
Besides all that, it's been great living with her! She loves to smile now. Mike can't get enough of her smiles. He's very excited because he's been noticing that she recognizes him, and looks at him just like she looks at me. We've been trying to get smiling pictures, but this is the best we've got so far. It seems like she stops smiling every time we get the camera... typical, huh?!
