you have grown so much this past month! you have officially doubled your birth weight and are now 12 lbs 12 oz. you are starting to get chunky and we love all your little rolls. you are rolling around like crazy and cant sit still. you are very aware of everything going on around you and are always looking around taking everything in. you are giggling alot now and i have even caught you a few times giggling to yourself. its fun to hear your happy voice. after you got over your ear infection you went back to sleeping all night. you have even started going to bed almost an hour earlier which has been very nice. in all you sleep about 8 hours, eat, then sleep another 2-3. i feel like i have been able to start catching up on my sleep. its wonderful.
you are still a very pleasant, happy little girl. its been fun to watch you blossom this last month as you have been surrounded by family and friends. we celebrated thanskgiving at the cabin in timberlakes with the behling family and christmas here in heber with the drapers. you are already spoiled and everyone adores you! you enjoy your aunts and uncles and grandparents and little cousins. you smile at everyone and it makes everyone smile back. at your 4 month dr appointment you finally got your 2 month shots. the office has been out of them for the past 2 months so you were a little behind but thats ok because your legs are much chubbier now and could take the poke a little better! i cant decide if it hurt you more to get the shots or peel off the bandaids. you didnt like either very much. it made me sad to see you sad.
this week you discovered your hands. you layed on the bed for 20 minutes holding them in the air, moving them around and watching the way they bend and move. you also discovered your tongue. you have been sticking it out and curling it all day today, like you just realized you are in control of it. its so fun to watch you as you figure everything out.
Q, you continue to be the joy in our lives! you are so delightful and lively and we are soaking up every minute we get with you. you already have us both wapped around your little finger and we adore every little thing about you. we are so blessed to have you! love you lots.

the biggest change this month is that you got your ears pierced! you had to be 3 months old before they would do it and when you were 3 months and 1 day we were off to the mall. it was pretty sad the way you screamed when they peirced them, but you didnt cry for long once it was over and daddy cuddled you. i wanted silver balls and brady wanted diamonds, so we settled on green diamonds, which are your birthstone. they dont seem to bother you at all and we absolutely love your cute little ears! you are still a great joy to us and getting more and more fun as you learn and try new things. you are growing so fast and changing every day. our whole world has changed because of you and our family would seem so empty without you. we are so happy to have you here!

the second month has come and gone so fast and it has been bitter sweet. you have changed so much over the last month. you are not my tiny fragile newborn anymore. you are still small but you are definitely growing. you have filled out quite a bit and you can hold your head up all by yourself. you are almost out of newborn clothes and into your new 0-3 month wardrobe. it kindof makes me sad to see you changing so quickly and growing so fast. at your 2 month check up you weighed 9lbs 14oz and were 23 in. you are in the 25th percentile for weight and 75th for height. but the best change this past month has been your smile. its like one day you learned how and you cant stop. you smile so much and it is so cute! you have tried to laugh a few times but it hasnt happened yet. i look forward to when it does.
you are still a very pleasant, content little girl. when you are hungry you get kindof fiesty but otherwise you are very calm. you are still a wonderful sleeper, sleeping at least 7 hours a night, which i am extremely grateful for! i like my sleep and im glad you do too. you are so easy to take anywhere and we continue to take you everywhere.
last week i had to go back to work. it has been so hard to leave you and i watch the clock religiously until 6:00 when i get to see you again. when i get home i dont want to put you down. chores get overlooked and i havent been to the grocery store for weeks, but ill get caught up sometime. i dont want to miss you growing!
life with you has been wonderful. i still think about what a miracle you are to us and thank the lord in every prayer i say. my love for you is stronger than i could ever imagine and i am so happy to be your mom. i love every minute with you.
love you lots.

you are now one month old. time has gone so fast and i cant believe that we have had you here for an entire month! you are already such a joy and i cant even imagine life without you. you are a very even tempered, content little girl. you dont cry unless you are starving or cold, like when you are getting your diaper changed with moms ice cold hands. but i think you are starting to get used to that. you dont like baths so i filled the tub and took one with you and you loved that. it was fun for me too. you are a great eater and dont spit up much. most nights you sleep 6-7 at a time and i feel like i have been spoiled. you are so little and dainty and are still in newborn clothes. i cant wait until you get to 0-3 months because we will have so many more outfits to choose from. we have had to borrow newborn stuff from friends and family. you still have lots of hair and dont seem to be losing any of it yet. i hope it stays, i love it. you smiled at dad today for the first time and he felt pretty special. he loves you alot and i can already see that you are going to be a daddys girl.
love you lots.

This is happening to me.....
(im really not angry its just a bad pic!)
Because of This.....
after a long 2 years we are expecting our first little one! theres only 2 months left and i really cant complain. besides the nausea and heartburn the first 3 months i have had a pretty good pregnancy, it really hasnt slowed me down too much. its fun to feel her moving around inside but i cant wait to have her out here to enjoy. we are excited for the changes this new little life will bring!
This is no longer part of my keychain.... brady and i canceled our gym passes for the summer. there is so much going on we just dont get over there enough. it was kindof sad to cancel but because we did i get to enjoy this....
This is the corner where the dogs used to sleep....
i have been taking the dogs out to the north fields and walking since i dont have a gym pass anymore. i am really loving being outside and enojoying the beautiful fields. its also been great for the dogs. they need it as much as i do!
this is kindof a big deal for me, but the dogs have moved out! since we have had dogs they have always come inside to sleep. they used to sleep here in this corner by the back door and i dont know if they are more sad to not come in or me! its kindof comforting to have them inside at night and this morning the kitchen looked awfully empty. but it was also SO NICE not to have to clean up the hair before i went to work. they are big and dirty and belong outside. (i am still convincing myself of that!)
This is brady and i in St George.... we have been able to go to st george with our good friends the bonners a few times this spring. we always have a good time and i hope there are more good times to come!
that is all i have time to post for now but i will try to do better at keeping things updated!
