What a cutie!

Brynn is getting so big! Tomorrow she will be two months old, time is flying by!!

I am really not looking forward to the next two days. Tomorrow, I'm taking her to the babysitter for the first time. Tuesday, she's getting her two month shots. 3 OF THEM! I about had a meltdown when they had to prick her foot at the lab, what the freak am I going to do on Tuesday?! Luckily, Chad is going to be there too. My mom went with me to the lab appointment a week after she was born and I felt awful, I felt so helpless, she was crying while I was holding her and I couldn't do anything to comfort her!! Tuesday will definately be a whole lot harder for a lot of reasons... one is that she knows that we're Mommy and Daddy and she's going to wonder why the hell we're letting someone do this to her, we're supposed to protect her and make things all better!! Number two is that her cry/scream is about forty times louder than it was two months ago, which will just bring us back to number one. Number three is that she can now focus on things and look us in the eye, which will again take us back to number one!!

These are just a few of the challenges/learning experiences/emotional moments that Chad and I will get to face as new parents!! I know there will be many more to come and I'm sure that these things don't seem like a big deal to a lot of the people who read this blog... BUT THEY ARE!!

Here are a few pictures that we've taken within the last few days!! I finally asked Chad to take a picture of Brynn and I and look at the face she's making!! She was NOT a happy camper!!

P.S. I think her eyes are going to stay blue like her Daddy's!!

Amanda-you look fantastic. And I know you this, but just keep telling yourself that you're only giving her the shots because its the best thing for her and it will make her healthier and happier in the long run.
