conversations with a 2 month old.

i can get her to smile,

but ben can get her to talk.

as soon as he comes in the room and she has his attention, she starts talking to him, kicking her legs and swinging her arms around.  

she doesn't even mind his furry kisses.  
{she is a better woman than i am already...i begged him to shave after taking these pictures.}

***2 month stats***

weight:  10 lbs. 12 oz.  {50%}
height:  23 in. {75%!!!  maybe she will have those long legs i always wanted.  a mom can dream, right?}
head:  39 1/2 cm. {75%!!!  it's her amazingly smart brain, i just know it.}

she took her shots like a champ, only crying for a minute
and then calming down.
took a nap, woke up a little fussy, took some tylenol,
and has been back to her peaceful little self.
i didn't even know babies could do that after shots.

i was telling ben tonight that i'm just amazed by her,
and wondered what life would have been like if she had been our first.
where i could have just lay and talked to her all day,
and my biggest worry would have been 
wondering how long before her hair grew in.

i know things would have been more simple, easy
but that's not the path that we were given in the beginning.
it's been a long journey,
but it's the road that has led me to this amazement 
and overwhelming gratitude for her sweet little spirit.

I love all these pictures, but that first one is so beautiful! The light is just perfect. She's perfect. So happy for you. Third children really are angels. ALL people need to at least make it to their third . . . Sweet, sweet, sweet.

The pictures are great but with that great description I'm afraid I'll have to see video proof. :)
