2 months

We went to Lizzy's two month appointment last week.  Here are her stats:

13lb, 10.5oz, 95%
24.5 in long, 95%
head-16.75  (off the charts like Maggie)

She has been smiling so much lately- but it's hard to catch.  I'm trying to talk to her and tickle her cheek and then hurry to get my hand out of the way to take a picture.  But I got a half smile ;-)  And she has been cooing when I talk to her.  It is one of the best things about being a mom.  
This picture makes me laugh.  She is really such a happy baby-  I have just been bad at taking pictures like I did with the first child.   And I do dress her in cute outfits, but she is a spitter so we change multiple times a day.  By the end of the day, she is just sporting a onesie.  Lizzy is so happy and is my easier baby of the two so far!  Happy 2 months Lizzy!
 First time doing water colors
Sisters- Loving that Maggie's hair is getting long enough for pig-tails.  Although her friend and her were arguing about whether they were "pig" or "pony" tails.   
 Lizzy looks so chubby- We love her so much around here.

Lots of sister pictures, per Maggie's request! 
So cute!

Utah 2012

We had a great time in Utah for two weeks.  Lizzy got to meet everyone in my family and Brad's family except for his parents, who are in their last year as Mission President in Armenia .  

                            Lizzy slept so well in everyone's arms.  Her cousin, Lauren was a pro!

 Max and Maggie pounding go-gurts
 Cousin Kate loves babies!
 Lizzy slept in Megan's arms too!
 Enjoying Cinda's pool
 Cousin Jack was so fun with Maggie
 Brad and Maggie swam for hours and hours.  
 We were also able to bless Lizzy with Brad's whole family (minus parents again).  But even both sets of his grandparents were able to be there.  My parents and the Maglebys made it.  It was a very special day!

 Grandma and Grandpa Carter
 Grandma and Grandpa Harper
 My niece, Taylor, is going to be a Senior- I can't believe it!  She is obviously awesome with kids.
 Brad's only sister, Katie, gave Lizzy that cute yellow dress she is wearing.
 Lizzy loves her Grandma- come back!  We miss you in Chicago!
The best part of going to Utah?  Maggie had the TIME OF HER LIFE.  Brad took her to his family reunion- up in the mountains of Heber.  So she was definitely worn out by the time we left!
