I apparently left my brain at home because I left our camera at home so I have NO pictures from the weekend. I was really looking forward to getting some pictures too. Grandma got some so I will have to try and get copies of them.

I can't believe she is 2 months old already!!!
2 months.....Wow. We are amazed everyday that our love can grow deeper for our little "Macie Face". I know....weird nickname but it just comes out of our mouths. She makes the cutest faces when she's sleeping or we are talking to her so we say "awwww, Macie face".
I can't believe the difference in her attentiveness, eye contact and interaction from just two weeks ago. She really locks eyes with me now while she is eating and when I talk to her. She looks like she is talking to me and trying to tell me something, but just can't form the words. I was talking to her yesterday morning and telling her that we were going to have a mommy/Macie day and go shopping and she looked at me like she understood what I was saying and then flashed "the smile" at me and my eyes welled up with tears. I don't know how else to describe the feeling you get when you have a moment like that (any Mommy knows the feeling). Any worries or stresses that I have go away and I am filled with such a sense of contentment. We actually made this little girl and are now responsible for raising her and it's the best feeling EVER!
I feel like her personality is really coming through and I get the feeling that she's going to be really sweet and that she's going to be a little bit of a jokester.
Happy Two Month Birthday my sweet baby!!!

"Macie, you are not to date until you are 17."
"No drinking until you are 19" AND.....
not sure where and how the conversation got to this point, but Phil was explaining to her that by the time she was graduating high school we would be old and she would be changing our diapers. Phil wanted to make sure she knew to use ButtPaste.
This is the look on her face at the exact moment he said that to her.....

Well today I was doing some Tummy Time with Macie and she rolled over on her own!!! I got so excited that I startled her. I put her back on her tummy and she did it AGAIN!!! It was so great to see. I was worried that she hadn't done it yet. Her neck and arm muscles seemed to be so strong so early but I looked it up and she's right on track.
When it develops
Your baby may be able to kick himself over, from his tummy to his back, as early as age 2 to 3 months. It may take him until he's about 5 or 6 months to flip from back to front, though, because he needs stronger neck and arm muscles for that maneuver.
How it develops
At about 3 months, when placed on his stomach, your baby will lift his head and shoulders high, using his arms for support. This mini-pushup helps him strengthen the muscles he'll use to roll over. He'll amaze you (and himself!) the first time he flips over. (While babies often flip from front to back first, doing it the other way is perfectly normal, too.)
I ran upstairs to get the video camera and put her back on her tummy but she wouldn't do it again of course. I think she wore herself out. We'll just have to try it again later!
I'm so glad I was here to see that!!!

So far it looks like she got her daddy's complexion, let's hope it stays that way.

Might be tough to see but it is in fact a letter to Macie from President Bush and Laura Bush.
It says: Welcome! We are delighted to join your family in celebrating your arrival. You have already brought much happiness to those around you, and you've just gotten started!We are glad you are now part of the wonderful American story. Our Nation holds great opportunities for you. May you make the most of your unique gifts, and may happiness and love surround you always.
George Bush and Laura Bush

Macie is hanging out with Grandma and Papa Wilson today. They got us tickets to the Bears game so we are going to go watch them beat up the Lions (I hope since Lions are 0-7).
Note from Macie to Grandma and Papa Wilson- You don't have to bribe Mommy and Daddy with Bears tickets so that you can watch me. I love spending time with you, you spoil me rotten!!!
