I actually have a few minutes!!!!

Hey everyone! So I've been wanting to do a blog for a long time now, just never have a chance. Karissa doesn't allow me to be on the computer a long time before she gets fussy. :) Yesterday we had her two month check-up. She gained enough weight to make the doctor happy even though it wasn't as much because of us running out of her supplement (see Dave's blog). She's now up to 6 lbs. 7 oz. and 20 in. long. I knew she was getting long because her pants were starting to become shorts! lol So she's been in newborn size which is good and today her outfit was even a 0-3 month size! She's definitely on the right track now. She did okay with her shots....her face got more red than I've ever seen!!!!! The doctor checked her all over and said she looks great. She's come alive so much in the past couple of months. As Dave mentioned, she smiles now with great big grins and sometimes makes a giggle sound when she smiles. During tummy time, she moves all around...pretty much from one end of the blanket to the other in only a few minutes. When Dave holds her and makes noises with his mouth, it is so cute to see her move her mouth to try to copy him. You also can't let anything get near her hands that you don't want her to grab because she'll grab onto stuff and not let go. So things are going really well....she's keeping me very busy, but we're having a great time. I put some pictures of her smile, where she starts tummy time, where she moves during tummy time, her 2 month picture, and of her and her cousin Hailey (it looks like she is saying "Not again Hailey" with her eyes because of Hailey crying). lol Thanks for the comments and hopefully, now that Karissa is doing better, we can get back to posting more frequently.
