Sweet Silence

So, I am obviously not the best blogger since my last entry was a month ago yesterday! Oh well!

Right now it is 9:51 and everyone in my house (except me, obviously) has been asleep for at least an hour. Did you hear that? EVERYONE!!!! That is unheard of! It is so quiet! My kitchen is clean, my bathroom is clean, the laundry is folded and I just put another in the dryer. What's a girl to do? How about Blog!!!

Today I took Lucy in for her 2 month appointment. I really can not believe this little girl has been with us for 2 months...it really has gone so quickly. She has gained exactly 3 pounds since birth and grown 2 inches. 37% for weight, 44% for height. She has met all the milestones that a 2 month old should meet. Her little neck muscles are so strong and she is holding her head up really well. She is also so smiley! I love it! She smiles so big that she lets out a little giggle.

I'm not the best photographer but I think I captured her sweet smile in these photos.
Unfortunately, she had shots today so we haven't seen that smile very much. I'm sure it will be back tomorrow.

This weekend is really special for our family. Curtis turns 8 on Friday and will be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Saturday. We decided to have Lucy blessed the same day so family doesn't have to travel two days in a row. Curtis is very excited to be baptized and also to share this special day with his baby sister. I honestly don't know how Curtis can be 8! I feel like it was just a few years ago that HE was my 2 month old. It makes me realize how important it is for me to make the most of everyday with these kids because they won't stay little forever and before I know it, they will be at college, on missions, married and having their own children!

Before I sign off, I just want to send a shout out to my dear friend Karen. Happy Birthday Karen! I hope this year is even better than last! Love you!

Lucy is such a beauty! I agree in that I can't belive that Curtis 8! I remember when you were pregnant! How rewarding for me that we are still friends after all these years.

Thanks for the birthday wish! This year will be hard to top a wedding and a fabulous honeymoon, but then everyday is a honeymoon with Jim!!

love you....Karen

I promise one of these days I will travel the two whole blocks to come see you and your cute family. I have no good excuse for it...

That Lucy girl is ABSOLUTELY darling! What a smile!

Curtis is 8? - Holy Macaroni. It just flies by.
