EJ's 2 month stats

Our sweet Evie Joy is 2 months old and I can hardly believe it!  I love this precious newborn stage (though the lack of sleep is not necessarily fun...).  I am so thankful for these precious moments with her and am trying to soak in every moment with her.
I remember this time last year....unsure that we would ever be able to have any more biological children.  That was hard.  It was a time that the Lord definitely used to grow my faith and push me to put my faith in him more than ever before.
This time last year we were on our second round of clomid and it hadn't worked.  I was devastated.  Truly devastated.  Yet I knew in my heart that God was and is still good and loved me.  I knew that HE had good plans for me and for our family.  We prayed so long and hard to be able to have more children and here I sit...holding this precious life.
I am so thankful to our heavenly father that He would give us so a beautiful precious little girl.

Moving on to her stats...
We went to the doctor yesterday for her 2 month check up and we are at a whopping 8 lb. 6 oz!!!  I know for many, that still is very small, but she is growing so well :)  She might be in the 3rd or less percentile for her weight, but she is growing at a good pace and is doing great!  I am so thankful that we were able to figure out this whole nursing thing and get to a place where she is able to just nurse and not need supplements any longer :)
She was 22.5 inches long putting her in the 35%!  What can I say...I guess Michael and I produce tall skinny kiddos ;)
She is really starting to smile lots and cooing.  She especially loves when her sister lays with her and they get to "talking".  She is such a happy baby :)
She, like her sister, spits up  We were hoping she wouldn't, but oh well.  She doesn't do it enough to be a problem and it doesn't bother her which is nice, but man...we can go through so many outfits each day.  Not just hers, but mommy's too.  It's like she knows how to aim over a burp cloth and get it all over my clothes instead.
She loves to be held...and we don't mind that right now at all.  I am sure one day we will want to be to able to take a nap in her bed, but for now it is alright.  She sleeps best during the day if I put on my moby wrap and let her sleep in there.  We call it her "happy place".  Guaranteed sleep when she goes in it :)
For fun, let's compare the girls:

First pic is SK at about 2 months and second pic is EJ at 2 months :)  What do you think?  Not the best pics to compare, but it will have to do...
For is one more smiling picture I captured recently!

Off to snuggle with EJ for a little Sat. afternoon nap before the SEC championship game later!
