All smiles...almost

We are getting ready for our trip back to the East Coast. India asks that everyone be practicing their favorite songs and dances to perform for her. That is her favorite thing to do right Mommy and Daddy perform and act silly for her. Seems like she grew about 3 inches while she slept last night so be ready for how grown up she is getting.
She is becoming a pro at tummy time, you can see her commando stance in the picture. There are also other adorable quirks starting to come when she sits at the table with us she pretends to chew while we're eating...there's the occasional belly laugh that makes us melt...except for late night feedings she always wakes up with a smile on her face.

Parenting just gets better and better with each passing day!

Two months old

This has been an exciting week for Ms. India. She made a trip up the highest paved road in North America at Mt. Evans, almost had a heart attack as Detroit lost in triple overtime (she had to give her Daddy the play by play because he couldn't stand to watch), and had her two month check up.

The doctor said that India is doing great. She is healthy and developing just as she should be. She is 23 1/2 inches tall and 11 lbs. 2.5 oz. This is average weight and she is in the 90th percentile for her height (as most basketball players are). India was really brave getting her shots. She held Mommy's hand to keep Mommy from crying. As you can see in the picture she received three different color band-aids. She was fussy that evening but overall they didn't seem to phase her.

India also got a Bumbo this week to help her to sit up and give her a totally different view of the world around her. We had to do something as she's been staring at white ceilings for much of her infant life. These things are the greatest inventions and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

Can you believe it?! In just 3 weeks she gets to travel to the East Coast to meet family and friends that she doesn't know exist. We are all really excited to see you all!!

We Love You,

Linwood, Sara, and India
