Doctor's Visit and Visitors!

Violet had her two month well baby check-up on Thursday. She now weighs a whoppin' 9.6 pounds. We are still working on that, but it has put her in the 50th percentile for her weight and height and we will take that any day. She is in the 75th percentile for her head size. That's our baby with the big head. Big head = big brain, right?

Things are going wonderful for her and the doctor is happy with her growth and overall health. She did receive 4 vaccinations on Thursday and that made for a sad little baby. Thankfully, she did not have a fever or any other symptoms that evening. She is a healthy little one. We have been so blessed to have her be so healthy. With a newborn in flu season, every mother wonders what the first few months will look like. Tomorrow she turns 11 weeks and God has been good to us in protecting her from any colds or viruses. God has been just plain good to us overall! We are very blessed!

We are expecting Grandma and Grandpa Good to arrive this week for the holidays. We are excited to share Vi Pie with them. This will be the first time for them to meet her, and there couldn't be a better time. She is so interactive, alert and personable. We are loving the time with her ourselves.

Daniel's brother and family arrive this next weekend so we are looking forward to a wonderful holiday with family.

Violet is excited to meet her extended family!

Christmas Outfit

We received a package in the mail this week from a dear family friend. She had given us two adorable little outfits for Vi, one being a Baby's 1st Christmas outfit. Well, it had a matching headband for Vi so the camera had to come out. I just love the little headbands with the bow on top. It looks so cute on baby girls' heads with very little hair. Adorable!

I uploaded more pictures on Flickr. You can see them by clicking on my photostream on the right side of the blog. I got a little carried away and uploaded a ton. I know the grandparents will be happy though. They can see the many faces of Vi Pie.

NPS Grand Winter Ball

Daniel's school had a fundraiser ball on Saturday evening that we were able to attend. It was a super fancy event and we had a great evening. Violet was being taken care of by my Bible study leader and her husband. They cuddled with her all deprivation there.

We enjoyed our night out together but when we were heading home it was amazing the longing to hold Violet that overwhelmed me. It is truly a blessing that God has given her to us and put such a love in our hearts for her. Let's just say it was good to hold her again.
