Chatty Chatty

Sweet Caroline has really been cooing lately. It's adorable and I finally caught it on camera. The last two seconds are my favorite, ha!

Cmom's Flowers

Cmom has some pretty zinnias growing in her garden this summer. We took advantage of a pretty picture prop!

SJ examining the flower...

Smiley girl!
This is SJ last year with Cmom's flowers.
My how she has grown!

Sarah and Jude

Jude came over for a few hours last week to hang out with Sarah. They wear each other out when they play together and I love it. They secretly love each other too, or so I hope! Just look at these cute saucy faces!

Look what I can do!

Little Miss has been holding her head up really well since she was born but here lately she's really gotten stronger when lying on her belly. And, not to brag or anything, but she totally rolled over from belly to back on Friday night. I'm sure it was a fluke, but it made me so proud! :) Slow down on the growing Caroline!

Baby Blake Griffin

I apologize for the number of times you hear the words basket and sister...they might possibly be Sarah's next words!

Sarah loves Caroline! C is the only person that Sarah will give kisses to 100% of the time when asked. It's so sweet! Now, if we could only get SJ to realize that C is not a toy...
Caroline, however, just takes it in stride. What else can you do when you're stuck in one spot? It's so true that babies are a lot more resilient than (or is it then?) we give them credit for! Love my girls!

Caroline and Sarah both had shots yesterday at their 2 and 15 month checkups. Daniel had work obligations so I called in my backup, Auntie Salle! Thanks so much for your help, Salle, I could not have gotten through that appointment by myself!

Sarah was AMAZING during her two shots. She didn't cry at all. Not one tear. Tough little girl! Caroline was pretty awesome too. She cried, of course, but after about a minute she decided it wasn't that bad and never made another peep. There was another two month old, who had just received shots, checking out when we left the doctor and that poor little thing cried the whole time. Made me proud of my tough little girls, though! :)

Sarah's Stats:
Height: 30.25 inches (90th percentile)
Weight: 24 lb 5 oz (75th percentile)
Caroline's Stats:
Height: 22.25 inches (75th percentile)
Weight: 11 lb 11 oz (75th percentile)

Two Months

Today is Miss Caroline's two month birthday! She gets her first set of shots tomorrow, boo! Here are some fun things C is doing these days:
-Eats 6 times a day (7:30, 10:30, 1:30, 4:30, 7:30 and 10:30...I LOVE this schedule!)
-Naps about 3 times a day for about 1.5 hours each.
-Smiles!!! I love when babies learn to smile!
-Goes to bed around 8 PM (I wake her up to feed her one more time around 10:30) and wakes up around 7:30 AM. She likes to wake up sometime between 3 AM and 5 AM but if I give her the paci she goes right back to sleep...not too shabby!
-Has started cooing and making the sweetest noises. It's so fun to hear her "talk".

We are so thankful to have Caroline in this family. Life sure is different (but in a good way!) with a second child but the future is going to be so much FUN! We love you sweet Caroline!
