I'm a big kid now!

Well, after a short nap in her crib yesterday, I decided to try having her sleep there last night. And she did it! I was so proud of her! She only woke up once, and did this all without a boppy! While she's been in the bassinet next to our bed, she hasn't been able to sleep for long periods of time without sleeping in the boppy where she feels cozy and cuddled. I'm so proud of her! I can't believe how big she's getting! Each day I am more and more amazed at what she's able to do! She coos and smiles so much now. I feel like I can understand what she's trying to tell me. She's so adorable!

Yesterday she was not very happy to discover that she was in her crib after her nap...

But once she saw mommy she decided it was ok.

Doctor, doctor give me the news...

We went to the Dr. today for Gracie's two month check up. Dr. Miller said she looks great, and she and I are both doing a great job and to keep up the good work! She now weighs 11 lbs. 15 oz. and she is 23 inches long. She is in the 50th percentile and right on track to being perfect!! But we already knew she was, of course! :) I made sure to give her some Tylenol after the appointment, so she'll probably be sleeping for a while, which will be good for all of us! She keeps me so busy that I forget about myself, and that is the best possible feeling in the world. I just feel so incredibly lucky that Heavenly Father has blessed me with such a gorgeous, fun, good natured baby girl, and I look forward to all of her milestones in the future. Motherhood is so much different than I imagined ( in a good way) and I am so glad that I finally have the opportunity to experience it. It's all I could have ever wanted and more.

Grace turned 2 months old on the 10th! I can't believe my baby is growing so fast! It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant and here she is 2 and a half months old! I can't believe how fast time flies when you're happy! We love her so much and are so grateful everday that we have her in our lives!

So Gracie loves her mobile!! She'll just lay under it and watch it for the longest time! (unless she's hungry, tired, or wants mommy, of course!) But it's so cute! I tried to get some pictures of her watching it the other day. She's so funny-she just lights up whenever she hears the music start to play. She got a new swing last week that has a mobile and I wish I could have captured her face forever when she saw it! She just got so excited!! It's so much fun to watch her grow and develop!

We missed the 4th!

This was Grace's 4th of July dress that she never got to wear to church! The day she was going to wear it I was sick so we stayed home and then the next week she was screaming bloody murder and she and I never made it. So...she'll be wearing to church, just a little late. But hey, it's never too late to be patriotic, right?? (Her headband is my personal favorite!)
