Mommy just realized you are in the same outfit alot but Mommy loves it and you are getting so big it will not fit much longer so we are trying to get as much use out of it a possible!
Dear sweet girl,
You are now 9 weeks old and getting so big. You had your 2 month shots yesterday. Man was is rough!! You screamed, Mommy cried and it was very, very sad! You have gotten to be a big girl. Your are 24 inches long (up from 19.5 at birth), 12.3 lbs (up from 7.7 lbs at birth) and your head is 16 inches around! Looks like you got your Mommies brain in the noggin of yours. You were in a pretty bad mood yesterday after your shots. Just grumpy and crying. The Tylenol helped a little but we had a harder time than normal getting you to go to sleep last night. Luckily daddy was able to get you settled down! Yesterday was your Aunt Angela's birthday but she had to work all day long so we are taking her out today for a indian lunch! That is both one of our favorite places to go and you have not been yet!

This past weekend you went on your first out of town trip. We went to your Gamma and Papa's house to go to Gamma's work picnic. Boy was it HOT! You did really good tho and slept most of the time. You always do really good in the car in your car seat. It puts you right to sleep. Everyone was gushing over you and how good and cute you were.
This past week was another milestone for you. Mommy and Daddy left you with your Grandma and went out to lunch and shopping. This is the first time your Grandma has watched you by herself. She said you did great (you also gave her a big poopy surprise Hehe!) but she did not let you nap as long as Mommy said to (she was to excited to hold you the whole time) and Mommy and Daddy paid for it later that night. You screamed from 6 to bedtime from exhaustion. You have to have naps in order to function.
You are doing so much better on tummy time. Mommy figured out the trick to get you to lift your head good and high, put the dogs in front of you. Just this week you have started noticing the dogs and you watch them whenever they are around. So Mommy decided to make them lay in front of you while you are on tummy time and you love to watch them. It is pretty funny!
Naps are still hit and miss with you. Some times you are great with napping and them other days you will have none of it. Mommy has started taking you out when you will not nap and going shopping and it usually puts you right to sleep.
This week we moved the bed out of your room and Aunt Angela is going to give us her rocking chair to put in your room so Mommy can rock you to sleep. Your Grandma is going to cover an ottoman that Mommy has in a fabric that matches your room and then your room will be complete. We didn't have room for the chair before with the bed in there but now we do. Mommy can't wait because her back is hurting from bouncing you to sleep for every nap and bedtime!
You love spending time with Daddy and you sit quietly for him (you don't usually for mommy)!
Reading the Sunday paper with Daddy
We decided to try out your jumping toy thing and you love it! You were giggling and smiling and laughing. It was a big hit. So that is another thing that has taken over the living room so Mommy can get stuff done when you are awake. Plus it the prime height for you to watch the dogs.
Daddy and I love you so much! You are a joy and a really good baby. You make our lives complete and we love you more than you could imagine!
Love, your Mommy and Daddy
