I am quite sure...

..that she must be the cutest thing; bias and prejudice? Bahhh...never :)

Is it just me or does it look like her hair has a reddish tint?

Maggiano Saturday

We had a great Saturday afternoon. I was already for Jay to take the above picture when someone decided it would be wonderful to release some extra milk from her tummy --- all over my new pink shirt. So after ironing the yellow one, here we are. Her dress if from Baby Gap - a friend gave me a gift card for there and this dress is the result. Yes, she is only 8 weeks old, but she is a little piggy and this dress is sized 3-6 months. We met up with Tim and Kris and their little gal Breanna at Maggiano's Little Italy. Yummy food, good friends. Then back home where Jay was kind enough to take Rylee for an hour and a half for me to catch some zzzzzz's.

Time flies....

So she wasn't very happy with me - I still think she looks cute :)

I go back to work next Tuesday. I will miss my little munchkin but I know this is the best thing for right now. Nothing is more comforting or peaceful than to know you are doing the right thing. The best part - Jay will be able to stay home with her and we don't have to take her to a day care and worry about strangers taking care of her. On days Jay can't take care of her, we have Aunt Dani, Aunt Holley, and a couple others who are able to watch her. Well I hear her crying for her 2nd breakfast so I better go.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Big 'un

She sure is a big 'un! Growing like a weed (or a flower :o) This is the watermelon dress from Aunt Ally.

Just proving that she is busting out of her 0-3 months clothes!

I can't believe I am headed back to work so soon! I will be working part time in June and then back to full time in July. In some ways it has been the longest 6 weeks of my life and in some ways the shortest.

Impulse Shopping....?

First off - here are the girls on my first Mother's Day. So sad - we are missing Ally!

So we have been looking around for a bigger vehicle. Both of our cars are old and have a lot of miles. Our main car has 219,000 miles and the other has 175,000 miles. We have been saving up towards a newer vehicle. Mom had told me about this white van that was for sale. I wasn't even thinking of looking for a vehicle this weekend, but everything changed when I saw the vehicle on the lot. I called Jay and told him about it. I ended up driving it and another van on the lot. Talk about changing my plans for the day. I am not an impulse shopper by any means, but I couldn't let this go without some serious consideration. Called Jay again (maybe more than once); called a mechanic in our church; talked to Dad; talked to Mom; decided to go for it. So thankful that God has taken such good care of us. We were able to buy this van the Dave Ramsey way - paid cash for it.

Do not like that it is white - but that was the least of my worries!

Not sure why the dogs insisted on being in all the pictures :)

This is around the corner from our house!

So chunky! I was watching her in the stroller while we were walking down the bumpy side walks. It was funny to see her double chin bouncing!

One month!

Crazy how fast time goes - I am just trying to get myself acclimated to her schedule.

Caterpillar we saw on our walk in the previous post.
