2 months old, and we're still waiting...

We're still waiting for little Mary Grace to sleep through the night, that is!  I know, I know.  I ought to give this little peanut a break considering she only wakes up once in the night and is otherwise a great napper and very contented, sweet baby.  Christopher and Sarah slept through the night at 6 weeks and Hannah didn't sleep through the night until she was 10 weeks.  I guess I'm more eager for Mary Grace to sleep through the night sooner rather than later because she's #4 and having 4 kids ages 5 and under leaves Mommy with little to no breaks!  This is evidenced by my silence on the blogosphere ever since my mom skipped town.  I have a free moment now that MG is in the bouncy seat as I type, Hannah is sleeping, and Christopher and Sarah have been given strict instructions not to leave their room until a given time.

Let's see, MG was about 2 weeks old at her baptism (see the last blog post) and today is 2 months old.  The following pictures were taken at ages 1 month to 2 months:

The picture below was taken the day MG turned 1 month.  Don't you just love the spikey hair?

The next two pictures were taken when she was about 6 1/2 weeks old.  Watch those cheeks grow...

The next two pics were taken a couple of days ago.  Christopher adores his littlest sister.
Christopher is making MG laugh.

Today - MG is 2 months old and smiling responsively.

I dressed MG in this little leopard printed get-up on Sunday.  As you can imagine, she attracted lots of attention at church, but the greatest response was from her older siblings.  Christopher thought I actually killed a leopard to get its skins for this outfit, but I assured him the print was simply painted on the material.
I was pretty convinced that MG's eyes would turn brown, but here they are...still blue.
