2 Months Old!

I'm a little devastated because my computer crashed last week and of course I hadn't backed it up since Indie was born so all the pictures of her birth up until now are gone. I'm hanging onto the slight hope that my bro-in-law can recover those photos so we'll see. Anyway, Indie had her 2 month check up today and she weighed in at exactly 10lbs and 22in. She's in the 29th percentile for her weight, 37th for her height, and 11th for her head...still a small little thing, but from where she started I think she's pretty big. I think she looks bigger than she really is because much of the weight has resided in her cheeks. Just like her mama, the first sign of weight gain goes straight to her face. She is really a good baby and sleeps anywhere from 5-7 hours at night. I have been pumping for the last 2 months since she struggled a little with nursing in the beginning, but last week I tried nursing her for the first time since her first week of life and she picked it up so easily. Definitely the backwards way to do things and I don't know if anyone has done that before, but it seems to work for us and I'm stoked about it. She also seems to be a happier baby. She was originally the gruntiest baby you've ever heard, but ever since nursing she has toned it way down. I'm guessing maybe there are less air bubbles in her belly, but what do I know. Here are some pictures of this sweet thang...

Starting to smile all the time now...
Walter has yet to care one bit about this new person in our home, but I'm positive they'll be best buds before too long (this is just about the closest he has come in proximity to her)...
Indie loves to be talked to and tries so hard to talk back...
In other news, we will be living in North Carolina for the summer and will be leaving April 13th to head out there. Trey loves to choose the farthest areas for our summer residency, but strangely enough, I love the hot humidity and we always get lucky with that on the east coast.

I should have Indie's birth announcements tomorrow so if you'd like one and don't think I'd have your address you can email it to me...jwoo42@hotmail.com

She is so darling! She really has grown a lot since her birth! She is darling I am glad you guys are nursing I am still pumping round the clock and nursing about once a day but nursing is so much more convenient! Can't wait to take our kiddos to the pool in NC!

Oh my, what an adorable granddaughter we have. She looks like she's in a trance while Trey's talking to her. I can't believe you are taking her so far away from us. And she will change so incredibly much during those months. Love you all.

She really likes me, so maybe just leave her at my house for the summer?

So cute!! I thought luke was super fussy until 2 months too so maybe it's just a stage (I pumped the whole time) We really want to come see her! I will call you this week:)
