Hacked Blog

oh dear.  it seems as though someone has hacked into our blog and changed the "title."   darling stella is anything but hostile.  and i've already brainstormed an interesting, non-stella blog spot.  it's coming...

of course, i'll probably illustrate the post with pictures of stella.

2 Month Update

A few weeks ago we went for Stella's 2 month check up.   She was smiling and happy, right up until the 2nd shot when she realized what was going on and did NOT like it.  Neither did we.
There is something to be said for consistency.  Stella continues to rock the 95% for height and weight.  She weighed in at 13lb5oz and was 25 inches long. 
When we got to the doctor, Stella hadn't gone to the bathroom in 5 days.  Dr. Larson said she may just have a long colon (she is a long girl) but suggested that we give her a little prune juice.  She gulped it right down and let's just say, it did the trick.
Stella continues to sleep like a champ.  Most nights from 10 p.m. - 4 a.m.  with a couple 2 hour naps and 30-45 minute cat naps here and there.  Here brain must be HUGE!  I love this part of the update, Stella now takes a pacifier (with a little coaxing).  I wouldn't say that she loves it...but we're getting closer to that point.  I've been waiting for this day and have a somewhat irrational belief that it is going to make all of our lives better. 
Her grins are heartwarming but catching them on camera is tricky.  We'll work on it but for now, the focus is on enjoying them.

Our Blessing

It was a big Sunday for our family.  Jason and I spoke in sacrament meeting, Jason got a new calling, we blessed Stella, and our family filled up two rows of the chapel.  The blessing was beautiful.  I was worried she'd cry through it, but not a peep.  GG made a gorgeous blanket and bought Stella this classy dress...and cute shoes, and a just-right bow (I did a poor job of keeping it in her hair. It's currently in Angelique's car. It is not the lace one picture below...that was a mediocre substitute.)  
Stella is so loved!
I just want to eat her up.
