Happy Baby Girl

I am really thankful b/c I have not suffered terribly from sleep deprivation. At night, Maizlyn sleeps for 5-6 hours, eats & then sleeps for another 2-3 hours. No complaints!
Maizlyn is doing so well! She had her "2-month" appointment today. She weighs 12 lbs. 14 oz. and is 24" inches long. She also received an oral vaccine and 5 shots. I have never heard her scream like I did today. I felt so bad but kept telling her it was only to prevent her from getting really sick.

Maizie is smiling & interacting with us more and more. We talk to her and she ooh's, ahh's and coo's. We love it! This weekend I was away from her for the first time overnight. My good friend Penny is getting married in April and I celebrated with her and other girlfriends at a cabin in Park Rapids. It was hard to leave Maizie Friday afternoon but I believe it is healthy. Friendships are extremely important to me & Patrick and I knew she was in good hands. Daddy had her all weekend and she was an angel!

Maizlyn has also discovered her hands. We noticed that often when making a fist, she holds her thumb between her index and middle finger. You can see what I mean in the above picture (left hand).

Daddy is training her how to hold the remote & watch his favorite channel. Silly daddy...

Oh, what adorable pictures!! I miss seeing her....oh, and you two as well. Nice job teaching her to watch sports, she holds the remote so well!

I can't wait until Easter, and see everyone.
