So big!

Bella! Two months old! I really can't believe it. I'm trying to take a lesson from Kenna and pose her by the same bear every month, to get a picture of her growth. Here she is with Pedro, the Vermont Teddy Bear my brother Pete sent her from his mission. (We love Pete!)She's still not quite strong enough to stay up for long, even in the corner of the couch.
So, what do we think now? Here is Olivia at two months. Bald, bald, big round head. Wasn't she adorable?
And Naomi at two months. This was Mimi's serious "toadlike" stage. She was really cute in person, but in pictures the froggyness is apparent. Oh, I loved those pajamas (thanks, Mags!) We wore them everywhere, as an outfit, and didn't waste it on sleeptime.
My opinion is that Annabel is a cross of the other two girls. Which means, since Naomi looks like my mom, and Olivia looks just like John, that we still don't have someone who looks like me. We might just have to keep going until we do. :)

This is a portrait of Annabel, drawn by Olivia.
She started with the hair and open mouth, adding eyes and a skirt. I think she decided that something was still missing because she said when she presented it to me, "Is it okay that I drew her with teeth?" And what teeth they are! (All the better to. . . )

I like the same bear in every picture idea. Did John pick out the outfit Bella is wearing? :)

She is such a cutie!! And I'm totally going with my dark Naomi idea. Seriously! She's a dark haired/dark eyed version of her! So a good mix it is.

PS
I love your analogies to animals. I still swear my kids look like brand new kittens until they're 6 months old.

She is so cute! I love the idea to put her with a stuffed animal to keep track of her growth! What a great smile!

I think she looks like your Grandmother Anderson - especially in the "I'm about to tip over" photo. (No connection with the tipping over, of course!)
