month 2


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.

Heaven sent, angelic and sweet
A bundle of joy so precious and meek

An answered prayer, a soul with a seed
To grow for God, to live for a need

Works of almighty from up above
Meant to be, meant to love

For you alone are proof to show
There is a Lord, we all must know
-Stephanie C Brown
sunday october 10th, 2010 was quincys blessing day. it was a very special day for all of us and we had alot of support from family and friends. it was neat that quincy got to wear the same dress i wore when i was blessed and use a blanket made by her great great grandma jane risenmay. despite his nervousness, brady gave a beautiful blessing and the spirit was strong. i feel so lucky to have such a wonderful husband that can bless our daughter and that we share such a great love for her. i consider it a miracle and blessing from god to have her here with us. i am so proud and i love her dearly.

last weekend we went camping with jake and megan mcphie. we were so excited to be able to use our camper trailer one more time before it gets too cold. we pulled our trailers out wednesday night so we could get a good spot then we headed out early saturday morning. it was a long drive, about 2 hours away up by the coleman basin. it was so beautiful! i love the trees this time of year and the crisp fall air. this was the view from where we were camping. we were up on a ridge looking down. it was so pretty! when we got there we went on a four wheeler ride. jake let us lead so we wouldnt be eating his dust since we had quincy and we ended up taking the wrong road. it made for a more scenic ride, but it also ended up being about 5 hours! i had quincy in the bjorn and she was a doll the whole 5 hours! she slept most of the time when she wasnt sightseeing. the rest of us were a little sore by the end but it was a fun ride.

jake and megan spoiled us with great dutch oven dinner and peach cobbler. they are both great cooks! sunday we made an awesome breakfast and did a little target practice for the upcoming hunt then headed home. it was a beautiful weekend and im looking forward to many more in years to come!
