2 Month Check Up

We took Mikayla to her 2 month check up today and she got her first set of immunization shots. I did not like the experience, and I know Mikayla liked it even less. Never the less, she was such a good girl. When she first got the shot, her face turned bright red, she let out the loudest scream I have ever heard her scream and cried for about 1 minute. We quickly snuggled her close to us and before we knew it, she was asleep. She slept the rest of the car ride home. She's been a little fussy, but she's been such a trooper. I'm just glad that first one is over.

Her stats for 2 months
She is in the 50th percentile for height and weight
75th percentile for her head circumference. I guess that is her intelligence coming through. She's going to be a genius, I can tell.

Dress Up

It's been fun these past couple of weeks to dress Mikayla in different outfits and put a matching bow in her hair. Here are a couple of our favorite outfits

This is one of my favorites, Mommy's wake up call. Boy is that ever true

It seems every time she wears this one, she really does become Captain Drool.

I love that she has her hands up, "Mom, please, no more pictures!"

We are starting her early so that she will be a basketball player. I think she looks so different with that hat on, but still so cute

A touch of femininity

Blessing Day

Today we blessed Mikayla and it went so well. She was just a little fussy during the blessing and that was because she got the hiccups. After the blessing she went right out and woke up just in time for pictures. Her blessing gown turned out beautiful, thanks to my sister-in-law, Amy, who made it from my wedding dress. All in all, it was a great day.
This is a picture of all the men who were in the circle. We are missing two people, Shane, who had to get back to Chloe, and Clark who lives in Colorado.

This picture didn't have anything to do with her blessing day. We just put sunglasses on her and right when I took the picture, she spit up. I thought it looked funny and cute.

First Sunday at Church

I did it! I made it through church for the first time!

So cute!
Today we took Mikayla to church for the first time and it went really well. I fed her right before we left and she fell asleep during Sacrament. She stayed out during the three hour block, so it was a very successful day. She looked so cute in her little black and white dress, and her bow. Hopefully every Sunday will be like today.
