Liberty was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church on June 19th, 2010. We had a family cookout and swam before the 5pm Saturday evening Mass. Following the Mass at St. Timothy's we dressed our little girl in the heirloom gown made from Two-Mom's wedding dress. Exhausted from squeezing into the gown, she fell asleep in Kelly's arms for awhile. Liberty's godparents, Kelly and Doug, promised to watch over her and help her with her faith journey. It was a special sacrament, and Deacon Dutch even called her his "favorite" because she smiled the moment he blessed her with oil.

Finally caught a smile on camera. Here are a few pictures from the past weeks of our cutie pie.
Liberty is just starting to laugh. She also bats at the hanging toys on her playmat. Soon she'll grab them I bet. She's also following objects a full 180* and has great head control. She especially likes to "track" my blackberry with her eyes. She also likes her Sophie Giraffe and the creature Kelly crocheted (we've named Susie Q).

Look who's 2 months old! Liberty's Dr. says she is now in the 97% percentile for length - coming in at an impressive 24 inches long (comparable to a 4 month old!). She weighed 12 pounds 14.5 ounces! That means she grew an entire inch and gained over 2 pounds in only a month. She's growing like crazy and has been very healthy (no illness, not even diaper rash!). This past month was a fun one. She smiles and coos now which has been so fun to get her to grin and "talk". I posted 2 videos (scroll down below) if you want to see her smiling face in action! Also if you want to cruise the slideshow pictures at your own pace, just click on the show. She has a million different facial expressions and outfits to show off.
Oh I almost forgot - guess who is sleeping from 9pm-4am & 5am-8:30am!?!?!
THAT'S MY GIRL!
