Do you think that Austin and I look alike?

I’m a few days late in posting this, but Adrianna is already two months old! I can’t believe how quickly time has gone by, yet it’s hard to remember life with only one child.

Adrianna had her 2 month check-up and shots on Tuesday, the day before I went back to work. We got her shots at the health department, then went to the peds for her Well Care check-up. Dr. Dutko said that everything looked really good and she seems really healthy. She was 10 pounds, 13 ounces and 22.5 inches. He said that she’s about 50% still, but she “isn’t going to be very tall”. haha I couldn’t help but laugh at the thought of a tall Roth…it’s sort of like an oxymoron! Here are some pictures on her 2 month “birthday”.

….and hopefully to stay! It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL today, even though it was a little windy. With temps in the upper 80s, I couldn’t ask for more! With such a gorgeous day, of course we had to play outside when we got home this afternoon.

Adrianna went to daycare for the first time on Wednesday. Of course, it was harder for for me than for her, but it was a good day overall. Both kids woke up around 6 am and we were out the door by 7 am. I wanted to get to work at least a half hour early on my first day back, so I could get myself acclimated before everyone else got there. Here are some pictures of Adri and Austin before going to Playland.

Adrianna, along with three other babies, was baptized at St. Mary’s yesterday. She did a great job through the entire ceremony and none of the baptized cried at all. Here are some pictures from the ceremony and the party at our house afterward.

She wore the same baptismal outfit that my sisters and I wore.

Life definitely likes to throw curve balls. Last night, I went shopping for Adrianna’s baptism party and Austin’s 2nd birthday party (yikes!) while Brittan stayed home with the kids. When I got home, Austin was asleep and Adrianna was rocking in the swing. Since Adrianna was sound asleep during the evening, I figured that she’d be up all night and I wouldn’t get much sleep. I was right about not getting any sleep but wrong about the reason why I wouldn’t get any sleep. Needless to say, Adrianna SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT! I’m sure that I’m just jinxing myself, but it was wonderful to have her sleep for so long at night. After having a bottle, she fell back asleep around 10:30 pm and didn’t wake up until almost 7 am this morning!

I’m SO glad that she slept through the night but I wish that I could say the same for myself. I was awake almost the entire night because I have an awful cold/cough and I couldn’t breathe. Austin hasn’t been feeling that great either, and he woke up screaming last night at 1 am. I woke up with him, went to his room, put him back on his pillow, rubbed his back for a minute, and he fell back asleep. Unfortnately, I couldn’t fall asleep as easily. 😦

Either way, I am SO happy that Adri slept through the night and I hope that it becomes a trend as I go back to work in less than a week!
