When Fathers Eat Their Young....

Chloe had her two month check up and got her first shots today. She weighed in at 12lbs 7ozs and she is 23 1/2 inches long now. So since she was born she has gained 4lbs 6ozs and 2 inches!!! Wow, my baby definitely isn't a newborn anymore. *tear*
Speaking of tears... I wish I could say my child took her shots like a champ. That she didn't even flinch or whimper. No. Turns out she's got my threshold for pain. None. She screamed bloody murder! I haven't heard her scream like that since she was born. Only there was a difference. That was because she had just gotten the shock of her life coming into the bright cold world, this was (apparently) mortal pain. The nice part is I can brag that I have the most easy going child ever. Like I said, I haven't heard her scream that loud (or that long) since she was born. I actually started crying because I couldn't make the pain stop. (Wow, I just had an interesting insight: I think I understand a little better how Heavenly Father feels about us.)

Anyways, I was bragging... She is almost never fussy and when she is it's because she's hungry, has a dirty diaper, uncomfortable or just wants to be held. We can put her in the swing, lay her on the bed or in the car seat and she will happily sit there till she needs something. She just chills. I love it!!! Oh AND she sleeps through the night almost every night! Have I mentioned I love this kid? I should probably quit having kids here while I'm ahead, huh? I could never do that though!

Anyways... You are probably wondering "What's with the title???," right? Well I was taking pictures of her band aids for her scrapbook and posterity, and a little later Preston was holding her and I was thinking how I don't have very many pictures of them together. If you know Preston then you know you have to take about 10 before you can get him to settle down and stop making faces between the click and the flash. This turned out to be our favorite:

This is what I was after:

I love the look on her face here:

What are you lookin' at?

This pictures just gave me the giggles.
Her shirt says "Milk Enthusiast"

In the first picture, Chloe looks a little scared. I love them all though. Poor little baby. Getting her first shots. She is definitely Preston's child with the way that she is growing.
