Painting at the Pottery. She was out until we tried to do her hands, she made fists and squished the black paint everywhere so we just did her feet.

Gracie is almost 10 weeks old (Tuesday) and we are so amazed at how much she's grown! She had her 2 month check-up earlier this week and she is 11 pounds 23 inches. She's in the 80th percentile for her height and 50th percentile for weight. Tall and slender... she doesn't get that from her parents that's for sure!  The doctor was impressed by how strong she is, she holds her head up without wobbling and can pull her head up slightly.   She is socially smiling now which is melting all of our hearts!  
We spent our first night away from daddy yesterday while he's away on a hunting trip.  Mommy's bot very good at swaddling so it was a long night. We're both ready for the professional swaddler to come home!

no more NB...

Grace is not a newborn anymore :( We moved up to size 1 diapers today after she had an accident all over daddy this morning) She's grown out of most of her NB clothes too! I wish he could stay my itty bitty baby forever! But on the brighter side, she can ft into the dress Pops got her when she was still in my belly.She has started to do pouty faces with her bottom lip stuck out and her eyes squished up which makes her look pretty pathetic but absolutely adorable; I think she's learning early how to manipulate her daddy!

We made a day trip up to Lubbock 2 days ago for momma's doctors appointment (all is well) and we got to have lunch with some good friends and their babies and baby bellies. We are really missing them!
It's been a rainy day here in Midland so we've just been hanging out and doing laundry (she spit up all over clean sheets so I had to strip them off and start over again...she thoyght it was hilarious). 
GrandDad is moving back this week and we are really excited for him to see how much Gracie has grown since Christmas!
