Punkin' Girl

WOW...little Miss Payton is 2 months old! These past several weeks since she joined our family have gone by so quickly! We had her 2 month checkup this morning and these are her stats:
12 lbs, 12 oz (95th percentile)
21 3/4 " (25th percentile)
For comparison purposes, Alexa's stats at this age were 13 lbs 6 oz and 23". What a chunker she was!! :-) And here they are, both at 2 months. They are definitely sisters, and both definitely my daughters!!...but there are differences as well. I can actually see some of Kevin in Payton...yay, he really did have a part in all of this!! :-)
Anyways, Payton is such a joy. She has really started to smile now, just in the last couple days, which is so fun! She still isn't on much of a schedule at night but we're working that. She's growing like a weed. It's actually been quite hard on me as I've already had to put away several clothing items that she's grown out of. They really don't stay little very long, do they??!!!
One of my new favorite things is that Alexa calls Payton "punkin' girl". Apparently she hears me call both her and Payton "punkin" so often, that she's taken to saying it as well. I frequently hear her saying to Payton "it's okay punkin' girl" or "ohhhh, punkin' girl", or something else along those lines. It's pretty darn cute if you ask me!!
Alexa is a great big sister, she loves Payton so much!
Happy 2 Months Punkin' Girl!!

What a cutie...I think she looks a lot like Kevin, especially in the eyes.
