Big Blue Eyes

Caroline is doing great! She has started to sleep through most of the night. We put her in her crib around 10:30 and she usually makes it until about 6:30. Every now and then she looses her pacifier and once we put it back in her mouth she is back to sleep! She loves daycare and they love her too! She smiles every morning when we get there. Caroline also smiles every time she sees Chad. After a few Saturdays together she has found a new favorite thing-her Dad! She is a pretty strong little girl. She likes to pull down the tangerine giraffe on her bouncy chair. She is so happy with herself when she does that! Caroline has also found her hands! They are in her mouth 75% of the time. Actually, she tries to fit her entire fist in her mouth. If that doesn't work and she has not yet pulled off the tangerine giraffe, then she puts him in her mouth. She is so proud of herself! She goes back to the doctor on February 13th. I will update after that visit and post her current stats! Until then...enjoy the pictures!

Chillin' with Papa

What a busy time it has been for Caroline! She has travelled from West Virginia to the Eastern Shore, attended two birthday parties, visited three churches, been on several shopping trips and as of yesterday, she went to daycare for the first time. Caroline had a great Christmas (even though she slept through most of it) complete with a pair of cowgirl boots-thank you Aunt Lee! Caroline got to meet a lot of new people including "bigger Paige" and Uncle Pemberton. On December 13, we went to the doctor for her 2 month check up. She now weighs 10 lbs 2 ozs and is 22.25 inches long. Caroline loves playing on her activity mat. She "coos" and "goos" and tries to run. It won't be long before she rolls over. Finally, the most exciting thing for Mom and Dad is Caroline's smile. She now smiles when you talk to her and it lasts longer than ever! When I took her to Daycare yesterday, she couldn't stop smiling! Maybe because there are five boys and she is the only girl!
