Month 2

Dear Annika,

Where has the time gone? I already miss you being small, but I’m so excited for you to grow. I feel I missed so much of you being small with all the medical mishaps. I wouldn’t trade you for the world though. I can’t wait for you to start laughing, crawling, and talking. We are going to have so much fun.

This month you started smiling. It is about the cutest thing ever. You’ve also learned to be expressive when you cry and have started using a pouting lip. As much as I hate to admit it, I think you are cute when you cry. I love your gummy smile.

You are trooper about our on the go lifestyle. You sit in your car seat and either sleep or play. You will sleep through anything from a dr. appointment to dinner at a restaurant.

Your dad continues to amaze me. He is so involved. He watches you all day and appeases me by continuing to put bows in your. However, most the time I do come home to you no longer wearing pants. You have him wrapped around your little finger.

Hannah has started watching you when dad is working. You love it there. You watch her kids play and smile away. The help feed you and even read you to sleep. I love that I don't have to worry about who is taking care of you. I am so thankful that you have such great people in your life.

You have started cooing. When you really get going it is like you are singing. Whenever we turn on a camera to record it, you instantly stop. Maybe you weren’t born to be actress?

I can’t imagine life without you.
