Growing, growing, growing

This was Londyn's first time in her bumbo. Don't let this picture fool you though, she totally loves it! She was so content just sitting there watching me as I was making dinner. It's probably nice being able to see the world from sitting up rather than laying down. Plus, she likes to be where she can see me, so this worked out great!

Londyn has found a new comfort thing. Her right hand goes to her mouth and she sucks on the knuckle of her pointer finger. Then her left hand goes directly to her hair! It's so cute. I wonder if she'd suck on her thumb if she didn't always tuck it under her fingers. Anyway, Tagg and I were getting ready to go to his ball game and he went to put her in the car seat and this is what he found. Londyn wasn't even screaming, she was just kinda grunting like she does when her binky falls out. :o) We thought it was pretty funny that she had pulled her bow over her mouth. The next day she pulled it down again, but it was just covering her eyes. I sensed her bows wouldn't be staying in her hair when she was grabbing her hair at a couple of weeks! Dang kid...leave the bows alone. :o)

I have totally loved Londy Lou's smile, coos, and grunts. She cracks us up all of the time and she is only 2 1/2 months old!! Londyn had her two month check-up today - yep...shots! She was supposed to get it done the week of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't do it to her then! And this last week we were babysitting my cousin Troy's girls. So I didn't want to do it then cuz I knew I wouldn't be able to snuggle her all day. So...today was the day. She has been doing pretty good. She definately is hurting, but I've been trying to stay on top of it with the Tylenol. Luckily my friend April suggested to start giving her the Tylenol about 30 minutes before going to the doctor. I totally think that was our saving grace. After her appt. we had to go get my blood drawn to test my thyroid levels and Londyn was smiling and talking to the nurses and that was an hour after her shots. She was still smiling till about 3:30 and then she started crying. It was killing me to see her in pain and that she had to wait another hour before I could give her more Tylenol. Poor babygirl!
Londyn's stats at birth:
Weight: 6 lbs 13 oz (14% for her age)
Height: 19 in (24%)
Here are Londyn's stats at 2 months and 2 weeks old.
Weight: 11 lbs 6 oz (49%)
Height: 23 1/4 in (64%) Wow this will probably be the only time she's above avg for her height :o)

I just love her so much. She is so beautiful. Thanks for coming by today. It is always so much fun to chat and see how big she is getting. Scott saw your blog and is jealous of Tagg's dirt bike. You are a nicer wife than me. :)

She's getting big Darci. I can't believe it though, Braden is almost the same weight as her. He's 11 lbs now. It's crazy how fast they can grow.

She's getting so big! I can't wait to have one too! I'm going to be coming to you with so many questions. I'm so nervous!! I'm only 3 1/2 weeks and haven't really started feeling any different except for 2 big differences haha. Morning sickness wasn't too bad for you was it?
