Wow, time sure flies when you have two kids under two years old. Josie has now officially been at home with us longer than Sophie was. Sadly, Sophie had to go to daycare at just under 3 moths old. Josie not only gets to stay home with her parents, but she gets to watch her big sister run the house all day long. Pretty lucky.
She is growing like a weed. We just cracked open the 3-6 month box of clothes and I think she will grow an inch or two now that we aren't binding her feet. :) We also adjusted her carseat so she wasn't scrunched anymore.
She is smiling a lot, mostly at anyone who will spare her a moment to give her some attention. Second children really only get the necessities. I feel guilty often because if she isn't really crying, I won't pick her up where as with Sophie, if she squeaked Jake and I both jumped.
She has discovered her hands and will suck on them endlessly and with much force. Today she got her hand stuck in the back of her throat and gagged herself about 5 times. She still hasn't figured out that she is the master of the hands and can have them do her bidding. Soon enough...
She started taking a bottle although she will let you know that she isn't very happy about it.
Her nick name of "The Juice" is sticking. Today her grandpa walked in the room and asked "Where's The Juice?". I am realizing that maybe she won't like this nickname when she is in high school. That is why we will have to document it well now, to embarrass her with later.
The Juice is a very happy baby. She sleeps well at night and as long as you keep her on her colic medicine, she coos and gurgles all day long. We are very blessed to have her as the newest Stephens.
