Two Months

Saturday was the two month anniversary of when Anna officially became a part of our family. It is so unreal to think of the past two months and all that has happened. It is a bit overwhelming, in a good way. Life has calmed down for the most part and we are getting into a schedule that fits our life.

Anna is doing great and growing and changing so quickly. Here are some of the changes we have seen:

She has become attached to the blanket her granddad Olson made her.
Her hair is growing, but it sticks straight up!
She got her first two teeth on the same day two weeks ago.
She is sitting up by herself.
She is scooting around, but not crawling yet.
She babbles and makes all kinds of noises.
She says "mama" and knows what she is saying! (My favorite on this list)
She is eating babyfood and actually enjoying it.
She had her first cheerio.
She has been sleeping through the night thanks to the pacifier.
She is still happy and very social.
She knows her family and recognizes all of our voices.
She knows her own name.
She loves to go outside on the swing.
She loves to go to Barnes and Noble!!
She is doing so much better in the car and seems to actually enjoy going places.
She loves to take a bath and splashes like crazy.

There is no way to list the ways her personality has blossomed and how she captivates the hearts of everyone she meets. Allie continues to cause the biggest smiles on her face.

We are enjoying every minute. I don't want to take any of this for granted. It is one of the biggest miracles I have ever seen and I am so grateful to be a part of it all. God is so good!

Here are some recent pictures:
