Zoey is 2 months!

Wow! I can hardly believe that 2 months has passed so quickly. Zoey has grown and learned so much in that short time.

Zoey is now 10 pounds and 10 ounces, and is 23 inches long! What a change from the little infant we brought home. She is almost able to completely hold her head up on her own, and can raise it about 45 degrees when she is on her belly. She surprised the doctor yesterday when she tried to complete a roll from her back to her belly. I guess I should have clairified what I meant when I told the doctor she could roll. She has rolled several times from her back to her belly and her belly to her back, but she has not yet put the two together and does not do either very consistently.

She is a happy, happy baby! She LOVES to flirt with people giving smiling and sticking out her tongue. She will reach out her arms and legs to let everyone know she wants to be held, and will babble to you if you are not paying her enough attention.

We also were given a nice break and few times she has slept completely through the night. In general, she only wakes up one time. Mom and dad are happy for the much needed extra sleep.

Aurora has been spending her summer with swimming lessons and Tae Kwon Doe. She has a presentation this Wednesday, and participated in a photo shoot for the Fall TKD flyer last week. She is looking forward to starting 2nd grade!

Kyle is currently in potty training boot camp, and we hope to have all the "kinks" worked out by the end of the week! Fingers crossed! He is getting excited for preschool in a few weeks. We are still unsure how long he will spend in preschool, but interaction with others will be a good change for him, and a nice break for everyone in the house. He loves to play with little people his age, and I know he will love school as much as Aurora does.

I am looking forward to starting a new semester next week! I am hoping to find time to write at the end of this week to get my prospectus completed finally. I am looking forward to a new year of students, and especially to teach Intercultural communication, a class I have not taught since leaving KY.

Dennis is busy wrapping up his end cap class, and trying to get all of his ducks in a row for a December graduation! We both hope everything works out so that he is able to do so.
