2 months old

Happy 2 month Birthday!

Dan came home this past weekend (4 days) and was able to see for the first time Mary Katherine smile and laugh at him! She was loving her Daddy and he was making her laugh the whole weekend! He also heard her infant cry and was surprised that it's no longer a newborn cry! Dan and Mary Katherine also spent quality time cuddling, napping, and playing on her activity mat.
He was disappointed that he missed a bowel blowout! He has yet to see a breastmilk poop that comes about every 48-72hours. He's only heard of my tales! Like the time (about 2 weeks ago) when the blowout was so large I sat there for a few minutes figuring out what step to take next and then realized that she had to go into the bath and that the clothes should go to the trash! And then when pulling her clothes off, she gets poop in her hair and on her face!

Mary Katherine was baptised into the Catholic Church this past weekend. My brother, Ben, is her godfather but he's in Army Ranger school in GA and couldn't make it but if we didn't have it this past weekend Dan would not have been there and we would not have been able to do it at our church that we were married in. It was a nice ceremony, despite the priest being a bit unorganized.

2 month pediatrican check up~ little Mary Katherine is not so little anymore! She's a whopping 10lbs 9 oz and 23 inches long.

Mary Katherine's personality is coming out more and more each day! She's quite the morning girl, all smiles and laughs, awake and talking. Fussy in the evenings and has a hard time going to sleep. And when she is awake her blue eyes are just as friendly as they can be! She doesn't care who is holding her as long as someone is holding her (or she is in her car seat!).

That's all the excitment here!
