Two Month Checkup

We had Anne-Hartley's two month check up last week. She weighed 11.6lbs.(75th percentile), 24 in. (90th percentile), and head circumference was 38cm. (25th percentile.) She is a good bit bigger than Ella Katherine was at this point. EK usually stayed around the 50th percentile in every category. She did great with her shots. She cried for about two seconds and was fine. She never got fussy and had no reactions. Such a blessing. The doctor also said that she has the interaction of a four month already.

She is starting to come alive. She smiles constantly and starting to giggle and coo a little. She is the sweetest baby. She has been sleeping through the night for a couple of weeks now. She already loves her big sister. Ella Katherine will pop her or jab her passy in her face among many other things, and she will just smile at her. It's so precious. Have I mentioned how much I love this girl?

The Girls Around Two Months

Anne-Hartley is on the bottom and Ella Katherine is on the top. Maybe its just me, but they could pass for twins. I am starting to notice some differences though.

We are in trouble. I think we have a little daredevil on our hands. We were in Northpark on Saturday and we kept passing the bungee jump contraption. Everytime we did she would just starting yelling with excitement. We stopped to let her watch never even imagining that she was big enough to do it. The worker came over and asked if she wanted to try. He said the weight limit was twenty pounds. We passed by a whopping four pounds and she loved it. You can't tell from the pictures, but she was really high up! She was quite the entertainer. Everyone was stopping to watch her. They probably though we were terrible parents for letting an 18 month on that thing.

Apparently mommy barking like a dog(embarrassing) was quite humorous on this particular night. I think she was a bit delirious.


We were at Pappy and Nona's this weekend with all four kids. They had a blast. They danced alot over the weekend. I wish I could have caught them the first time they danced all weekend. They had a huge crowd and were not holding anything back. They were breaking it down. By the time I got the camera out they were over it, so this doesn't actually do their moves any justice.

Penne ala Vodka

Ingredients Needed:

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter
2 shallots, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup vodka
1 cup chicken stock
1 28 or 32 oz can crushed tomatoes
salt and pepper
16 ounces pasta, doesn't have to be penne, any sort of shaped pasta will do.
1/2 cup heavy cream
15-20 leaves fresh basil, chopped

To Make:

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and butter to pan, and melt butter. Add garlic and shallots, and saute for 3-5 minutes. Add vodka to the pan, and reduce by half, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and tomatoes. Bring sauce up to bubbling, then reduce heat to simmer. While the sauce is simmering, cook pasta according to package directions in salted water, then drain, and set aside. Stir the cream into the sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Toss the hot pasta with sauce and stir in basil leaves. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
