What we did in August and Braelyn's 2 Months Old!

Well it's fall in the Hollis house hold, hunting season has begun!
 James has really gotten into archery hunting in the past few years and this year he decided he would try out his climbing tree stand. I don't know who is more nervouse about him climbing 25 feet in the air. He attempted to practice using it when we were camping to get more comfortable...
We camped a lot in the month of August!  Braelyn and Daddy's favorite acitivity while camping is napping.

 2 Months Old!
I can't belive how fast the past two months have gone. I returned to work after a 7 week maternity leave. Probably the hardest thing YET! The first week back Braelyn stayed with James. I think it was really good for James to have that time with her. When I got home after James' second day he said "you really learn a lot about this little girl in two days!" I had to laugh. I think they had a good bonding experience.
Braelyn has started really noticing things around her now. She moves he head from side to side and follows things around the room now. She really likes watching the celine fan too.
James took her for her 2 month check up and her firts shots. I think it was much harder on me than on her and I am glad I wasn't the one that had to take her. James said she did awesome and hardly cried at all. She weighed 9.13lbs and is now 22 inchs long. I can't belive how big she is getting!
Braelyn really likes:
 Her activity gym
Camping (slept 5 hrs straight for the first time)
Singing with Daddy...lots of cooing going on these days
Riding around in the the ergo baby carrier
Braelyn dislikes:
The car seat... if it's not moving she's not happy!
 The pacifier, so we gave up on those. I am not too sad about it though.
Going to sleep, she has learned how to fight going down for naps.

We are having so much fun with her. We all ready can't remember what life was like without her.

  1. Thank you so much!! You probably have no idea how much you have helped me and made MY first pregnancy so fun but you have. David and I are SO happy right now and its so early but I couldn't wait to start a blog about the process from the moment we found out and I have you to thank for that. I read your blog every week of your pregnancy. Seriously. You were the one that inspired my blog because I felt like I was right there with you every step of the way and when you are trying to conceive for so long like we were, I needed that inspiration and hope all the time. Now, I know I'm hormonal and that's why I'm crying but I have to say I am so happy you wrote to me. I have tried so many times to comment on your site and I NEVER am able to get through those crazy squiggle words. So many times I have laughed or cried reading about your beautiful baby Braelyn from the very beginning. Watching you change and look so amazing, not to mention how AMAZING you are at crafts, I was always SO FLOORED! Her nursery is breathtaking too, BTW. Thanks for the info about Shutterfly too. I will definitely look into that because its sounds like a amazing idea for a keep sake for both us and our parents. Please keep in touch. I would love to ask you advise, especially on how to make those tree cut outs for the nursery. I was thinking of going Grey and Lavender with a White Tree but i'll have to wait to find out the sex. I'm about 10 steps ahead and I need to stop before I explode. Congrats on your amazing family and all your blessings! Hope to talk to you soon!
