Also, this month, Ryan has really started to take an interest and interact with Ally. Just today, we went to go see if Ally was awake together, and when she was, Ryan brought her his lego tower that he had just built to show her. :) He loves to watch me change her diaper, and says; "yuck," every time, and also LOVES to help give her a bath. He is understanding that mommy needs to feed Ally quite often throughout the day and he generally will just play around us or try to make me laugh by being silly. He likes to burp Ally after she's done eating. He is such a good little guy...he's so gentle with her, and its fun to see how he reacts to her. Just the other day, Ally was crying and I could tell he was concerned, but didn't know what to do. So, he came over to me as I was holding her and gave me a hug and was patting my back. It was super sweet! I love seeing the compassion and tenderness that he has.
I feel so incredibly blessed to have two beautiful, healthy little kiddos. I also am so thankful for my super helpful, patient and understanding husband. Jason has been great with helping me while I am trying to figure out life with 2. He has been holding Ally in the late evening (around 9-12 or 1) so I can get some sleep without having to worry about waking up to Ally. It's amazing how just a couple of hours of sleep helps me get through the rest of the night when I am up every few hours.
Here are the pictures from Ally's 2 month photo shoot. As you will see, she is super smiley! She gets so excited when we talk to her, she's just so fun to be around!
