Dr. Appt.

Lanie had her first round of shots on Tuesday. She seemed to recover quickly, but I think it took David and I a bit longer. It was awful seeing her go through that! She is now up to 11 lbs and 14 oz, and she is 23 inches long. I knew she was growing like crazy, but I had no idea she was getting that big...
I cannot explian how terrific the time has been with Lanie. She is developing quite a personality. She is a happy, content baby who loves to cuddle and be held. She is also developing much more independence. She can sit and entertain herself for long periods of time and seems to be interested in the small world around her. She is now very aware of her surroundings and follows David and I with her eyes. She has a beautiful smile that I like to think she saves for us, but really she is willing to share it with anyone. She has definately changed our world for the better.

One Month

I cannot believe our Lanie is going to be one month old tomorrow. I never thought she could change so much in such a short time. She is getting taller, larger, and stronger everyday. She has also grown the most beautiful, longest eyelashes ever, thanks to her daddy's genes.
However these physical changes are nothing compared to how Lanie's personality has grown. She has always seemed to know our voices, but now she is fascinated by our faces. She will sit alertly and stare at us for what seems like hours, but is really only moments. She is also quite fascinated by her "fishie" mobile above her swing. Putting her in her swing is a surefire way for me to get a few moments to eat, shower, or perhaps clean up a little. It only lasts 10-15 minutes, but its amazing how much I can now get done in that time! Lanie is a happy baby who smiles often, but not really in response to anything. I cannot wait for the first time she actually smiles back at us. Lanie's favorite time of the day is bath time. She absolutely loves it! She stretches and turns trying to get every little bit of her body in the water. I think she would stay in there all day if I let her.
I'm sure the next month will bring as many changes as this month. This is both an exciting and scary thought. I can't wait to see every new thing she does, but I do not want the time to go by too fast...

Doing Great!

Lanie's had a very busy week, starting last weekend with her first birthday party. Her cousin Brooklin turned 5, and Lanie was as content as could be at the party. On Monday she finally lost her umbilical cord, which was exciting, but for some reason also a little sad...
Uncle Rich came to visit this week. He was able to spend several days visiting and spending time with Lanie. While he was here, Lanie went to grannie and papa's for the first time for dinner. She seems to like white noise, because anytime there are alot of people around she falls right to sleep and stays that way until we leave.
Lanie ended her week with a barbeque at the Bison Range. This was her second visit to the Bison Range (The first with her mom and grandmas)and once again she slept almost the entire time.
