Big Trip West!

This week we are preparing to fly out to California to watch Haven's Uncle Dave tie the knot! So we sent to the doctor yesterday to get her immunizations. Our doctor recommended we get the shots before the trip so she was covered as opposed to waiting until she was 2 months (which would be next week). More measuring and more shots, but we both survived and she seems to be taking it pretty well. Here are her stats: 11lbs 5.5oz and 22-1/4" long! Since she's not even 2 months yet, this plots her on the same curve she was on her last visit. She's pretty much in the 75th percentile for everything.
She's starting to be more interactive. She doesn't mind being on the floor by herself just to play on her activity mat. She's also responding with facial expressions and cooing. She still loves to move. If she's fussy, usually a good bouncing period will quiet her down. I can tell that she is focusing in on things that are farther away too. She'll look at me from the floor or from her swing instead of just staring at something a few inches away from her face. I think she also recognizes voices. On Sunday, Dad was holding her and every time Andrew said something she turned her head to look at him. After all, he is a pretty interesting guy!
And finally... She slept in her crib last night. It was a lot of work to get her to fall asleep and stay asleep in there but eventually it worked out. Hooray!


  1. So excited for you about her crib! I loved sleeping with jacob but not until he was in his own crib did I realize how much better I slept alone. Do you find it annoying that every time you say something about Haven, I say something about Jacob? I find it annoying. I will try to stop. I love you!
