We made it to 2 months... if we could make it to 7 pounds. It has not been easy, that is for sure, but I know we will soon forget about these difficult days. Colic is an evil thing and I am really not sure why God allows baby's to have colic, but we will all survive, I hope. Annika Grace is already 2 months old but pretty much looks the same and weighs the same as she did at 1 month. She had to go on formula to gain some weight and it finally up to 6 pounds 8 ounces. She is getting happier all the time and loves playing with her sister. That is one thing that usually makes her happy. We are even getting a little hint of a smile these days. She is starting to "talk" and have some "conversations" with us which is so much fun. I love watching my two girls together. They are in the same room now and the other day I went in and Madelynn was in the crib with her trying to get her to stop crying. It was so cute. She loves her baby sister so much. I know she will always watch out for her (and I am sure there will be plenty of fighting along the way but I will just enjoy the happy moments for now).

Her hair looks very red in this picture, it does have a hint of red but not this much usually.  I love watching her little personality develop and feel so blessed to be the mom of two wonderful girls.  I look forward to seeing what 2014 has in store for us.  God is good and I know He has big plans for all the changes we are going through.  I pray that I am ready when He calls me.  I can't imagine the adventure this little one is going to take us on; it has already been quite a ride.  Good thing she was 2nd :)
