2 Months Old!

Corina is TWO months old already! She has added an aspect to our lives we didn't know was missing, but now couldn't live without. Lukas is an amazing big brother. He won't let anyone even pretend to take her away. He is very protective. When Lukas talks she turns her head until she finds him, even if she's turning her head halfway behind her. I'm so glad they love each other so much!

Corina at 2 months:
- weighs 11 lbs 6 oz
- is 23 1/4 in tall
- is tracking really well
- smiles at more and more people/things. Currently the monkey on her bouncy seat is hilarious because she always smiles and stares at it when she's sitting there.
- sleeps 8-10 hours at night. Only rarely does she wake up in the middle of the night to eat.
- is now formula fed. She eats about 6-8 4 oz bottles in a day.
- coos and makes other fun noises all the time. She's pretty noisy already, so that has me a bit worried for when she actually starts to talk.
- can lift her head and shoulders off the floor for short bits of time.
- has a death grip on things that come into her grasp. Watch out if you have long hair or long earrings...it hurts! And no delicate necklaces.
- loves her bouncy seat and the floor to watch the fan, but she will tolerate her swing...sometimes.
- isn't a huge fan of her carseat. Car trips are usually filled with crying if she's not asleep.
- loves Mommy, Daddy, and big Brother more and more every day!!

Adorable baby girl!

Corina's First Trip

This past weekend (5/20 - 5/23) we went to visit Mema and Grandad in Houston. We had so much fun!

Grandad and Corina



Corina is watching the playplace at the mall. So much to see!



Lukas striking a pose at the playplace.



Mema and her favorite kids.



C and L dressed up for Sunday church. These are their Easter outfits, although only L actually wore it on Easter.



the Swaynes



"Danger, Danger Will Robinson!" Ok, so this is probably only funny to us.

Mommy and her favorite daughter.



a picture we don't often get...us.



Daddy and Lukas playing dinosaurs at Cheesecake Factory.



One day he'll realize that he's only getting the whipped cream part of the cheesecake, but until then whipped cream with sprinkles is his dessert.

Cute Overload

Corina started smiling this past Sunday (Mother's Day, 5-9-10)! Since then I've been able to catch a few on camera.







Sorry this is a bit dark. Natural light doesn't go very far at night.

I have the best kids in the world!

Corina also started sitting in the bumbo seat.



Lukas had to try it out as well. Sadly he likes it so much, that we finally had to put consequences on him sitting in it.





Tackling Daddy is one of the best games!

Monster Faces

I won't pretend to understand, but Lukas told me he was making monster faces when I took these pictures. If these are his monster faces, he's bound to be the cutest monster ever!







I don't think this one was still a monster face, but he sure is cute.



I couldn't make a post without including a picture of her. She's dressed up for church.
