Lydia at Two Months

We had Lydia's 2-month appt today (She is actually 10 weeks old). She is growing and healthy. What a happy baby! She loves playing little games and already gives a chuckle when you pleasantly surprise her. She has the most intense little gaze. You can't help bu look back and talk to her.

Today, her appt went well. Everything looks good. Sometimes baby girls who were breech in the womb will have problems with their hips, but she had an ultrasound at 6 weeks. Everything looks good! She is already 13lbs, 8ozs. She's 24 inches long! That's off the charts for both weight and height. She is a roly poly happy girl, and we are happy too.

Beach trip with Grandaddy and Family

We went to the beach last week with family, and we had so much fun. Actually we have taken a couple of beach trips this summer, and it has just been wonderful to get to spend so much time with everyone. Rowan had a blast. He is now swimming like a fish (with wings). He doesn't mind at all if his head goes under, and I feel like he's very close to getting the hang of the swimming thing if we just had more pool time.

He spent most of his time on this trip with either Livy, Alex, or Grandaddy. He wanted to go everywhere with them. The ocean was gorgeous and perfect for a toddler...very still and calm, very clear.

Here he is playing in the pool, bravely jumping off the side. At first he jumped to us, but by the end of the trip, he was jumping in all by himself, head going under and everything!

He wanted us all to jump at the same time...

Lydia thinks her brother is funny...

I didn't save these pictures "for the web", so they look a little grainy or weird or something. But maybe you can see how blue Lydia's eyes are below. I wonder if they will change. Rowan's eyes were blue like this too when he was this age.

One afternoon, I heard noises coming from the pantry. I opened the door to find this-

I have more pictures, but I'm having trouble with blogger at the moment, so I'll go ahead and post now:)
