2 month stats

So, we found out how busy the clinic is that Joni goes to for her pediatrician. They say they are booked 2 months out, so luckily when I called on her two month date (oops!) to get an appointment for those shots, they were able to find a slot just a week late-however with a different doctor than hers.
We are very pleased that she is growing! She now weighs 9 lbs. 10 oz. and she is 22 1/2 inches long! She was a real trooper when it came to the shots. She only cried for a short minute. Monte was a little concerned when he saw that she had to get shots. She loves to sit in the bouncy seat and look at the toys in front of her. There is a button on one of the toys that plays music and lights flash, so Monte stays pretty busy keeping that button pushed!
The other night, I laid her down in her bed because she was asleep and after a minute Justin could hear her sucking and he looked over and found her sucking her thumb. Yes, I am a mean mom, I took this picture while she was sleeping in the pitch dark (hence the red eyes) and the flash startled her awake, darnit!Then she quit sucking her thumb when she woke up. SO adorable!

She has been smiling and gooing for about a month now, but it has always been while she has been so close to me that I couldn't get a picture. The other day I was able to capture it! The angle on the camera makes her look funny though, but here is "The Smile"! with a little tongue poking out.

Here is a little video of us trying to get her to smile. She was giving great big smiles and gooing until I got the camera out then she was so preoccupied with the camera, she wouldn't do it anymore!

She is such a doll! Me and Andy are trying to plan out a time when we can come up and visit- we'll have to give you a call if we find a week this summer! We have to come see you guys and spend some time with your little princess!

So sweet to see the photos of all the children. It looks like you are having a great time and settling in smoothly. Joni Ann is a little princess. The boys are growing so fast and getting so big. I am sure the time is flying by. Say hello from all of us to your family. Kiss the baby for me.
