Tennesy is starting to fall in to a routine. This baby stuff isn't easy, but each day it gets a little better. Things are constantly changing and we are learning new stuff with each day. But boy how we love this girl. 

This girl is the happiest most smiley girl any of us have ever seen!! I don't know how she is so smiley with such a sick stomach 24/7. If only we could get that taken care of, darn it! We're tryin!
She loves the movie Lilo And Stitch!! I don't know what it is... But she LOVES it!

Hanging out with dad! We love the weekends =)

The best part about this beautiful place? It's so close to our house!
There's an ugly brown hill we can see from our house. We decided to drive over that big brown hill and discovered this breath taking place. Seriously you guys, these pictures don't do it justice. There was no end to these rolling green hills. They stretched on for miles. We saw wild turkeys and deer and we rolled down the windows, played our music and took in the beauty. Who knew it existed, and right by us this whole time!

All ready for church! 

She fell asleep in Dad's arms during priesthood meeting, and then basked in the sunshine outside after church.

Just catching up while I fold laundry

Someone got blessed last Sunday in a pretty dress made by grandma bob and a lovely blanket sewn by her Grandma. Such a beautiful day, and Auntie Karin opened up her home to everyone so it could happen.

At two months you have found your hands! You always have them in your mouth and you drool all over everything. You love to smile at everyone and try to be part of the conversation. You think it's pretty funny when we stick our tongues out at you and you stick yours right back out at us. 

You definitely know your family. You watch us intently and copy the noises we make. You can go from perfectly content to starving in 0.2 seconds! And you use your amazing lungs to let us all know. 

You still do your cute "eyeyeye" noise when you are getting frustrated with us and your quivery chin is still hanging around.

You love ceiling fans that has given you the nicname of fanny by your grandma who also bought you Humphrey your hamster because you guys have matching cheeks. Grandpa says you store your milk in them, and I call you Marvin because you're positive you are always starvin'

You're still nursing but you like to mix things up a little and drink from your bottle sometimes. You sure know what you want and when you want it! Your tummy still bothers you and we are trying our darndist to get you feeling better. But even with an upset tummy, you're the smiliest girl I've ever seen!

You have sure taught us a lot and we have learned to be patient with one another. We love you so much and you make us laugh all the time with the silly things you do.

On January 1st you weighed 10lbs 14oz and a couple weeks before that, you were 21" long! You are so tall! You have almost outgrown your size 3 month feety pajamas and I am running out of pjs for you. Dad and grandma have both said,
that we are going to have to cut the toes off of them so your feet can poke out.

You took a trip to UT and ID over Christmas and we stayed a whole month visiting grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles and all of your cousins. You had a yucky double ear infection, and RSV while we were there, went for a wild ride in your car seat at your cousins house and you were blessed by your dad in a beautiful homemade outfit and accessories made by your grandmas. You also outgrew most of your clothes and became a little baby instead of a newborn! Where did my teeny little bebe go??

You change every day, sweet girl. And while I'm sad to see you growing so quickly, it's so fun to watch you learn and change each day. You just get cuter and cuter and even more fun. I swear, every morning I wake up you have grown in the night. Part of me wishes I could keep you little forever.

We sure love you sweet Tennesy.

"Good morning"
"Little Fox"
Back in UT. Can you tell by the smiles on our faces, that we are happy to be "home"?! If the camera could have gotten my feet in the picture, you would see that I was wearing sandals.. My church shoes got lost in the move, and my boots were at my parents house. And yes, I did step out of the car into a giant icy puddle and a foot of snow.
Always crossing her ankles. #sassypants #babytoes

I found this blurry picture on my phone. We have been visiting family over the holidays, and this girl is always being held by someone. She just gets passed from one person to the next :)
