So it looks like our little "Joyful" will not follow in the same footsteps as her sister. A visit to the doctor today for her 2 month appointment made this clear. At 2 months Rose was 13.9 lbs and in the 98th percentile in all categories. Little Joy was tipping the scales today at 11 lbs and in the 50th percentile in all categories. She has not been eating that well and that is a little concerning to the doc, but we will check her progress at 3 months to make sure she is still a little sprouting bean! This little one pretty much sleeps through the night, and so you would think she is hungry during the day... Pray she gets more of an appetite and make some significant growing progress in the next month!
You wonder why? Ever since my sister Lesley was little she loved horses. She still loves them. It is something really beautiful to see my sister with all her horses. There is a way she interacts with them that really shows how much they mean to her. Little Rose is starting to love them just the same. Every time we go to Grandaddy's farm she sees and rides the horses! And when we visit in St.Louis Lesley takes Rose with her to feed the horses she takes care of. It is always a highlight of little Rosie's day. So you wonder why she loves horses...that is why. I think she will be like Lesley as she grows older. After all they are both my babies so why wouldnt Rose be like Les? :)
We spent Labor day with my family in St. Louis. It was a special time for us all to be together! Rose and Joy were a big hit and lightened the mood and brought happiness and smiles all around!

This Labor Day weekend we spent in St. Louis with my family. Joy was able to meet her Grandaddy for the first time! It was a wonderful time to be home with my whole family (except Charley) and spend much needed time together. In the last month Grandaddy was diagnosed with Cancer. Seeing someone you love hurting is so hard. When it is your Daddy and your hero, its even harder! Seeing him adore his little grand-daughters was something I cannot describe! I will post some more pics of the weekend with the family. But for now this one is my very favorite!
