Tomorrow's 7 Weeks!!

I cannot believe our little girl will be 7 weeks old tomorrow! The time has truly flown by, but has been a time of excitement, joy and true blessings.
Here she is with her wonderful doctor that delivered her, Dr. Sarver. Sleeping on her boppy pillow in her crib with her cute little pooh dress on.

Not so happy at mommy for trying to have a "photo shoot" when she was sleepy!

Her cute little inchworm playing "Be careful little eyes". She is really focusing in on it now!

Look how long I am today!
We are ready to go get our pics made for the church directory now!

Enjoying time with Daddy after having our pic made for directory.

Our 5th Week Together!

Leighann's fifth week was so much fun! We cannot believe how fast she is growing and developing. She will be 6 weeks old this coming Tuesday, August 25th. I took Leighann to go visit her daddy at work on Tuesday and that was so much fun. Everyone at his office enjoyed getting to meet her, and it was fun for me to take her there by myself for the first time. I picked up Chili's-to-go and surprised Tony with that for lunch and we enjoyed that time together. Leighann has also started to hold her head up a little more every day, spent a lot of time enjoying her swing, starting to focus more and more, cooing some and just loving being a spoiled little blessing! Just this afternoon she looked at her brother and sisters (the 2 cats and 2 dogs) and smiled! It was priceless! Thursday evening Marlan and Darlene, Leighann's Uncle and Aunt from Kansas came to visit for the weekend. We had a fun weekend with them going to the mall, out to eat, farmers market and watching nascar together. Us girls went shopping at Gymboree and had so much fun going through all the adorable clothes and I got some more for her. Can't wait to take pics of her in all her new cute things! It was a fun weekend. This coming week will be very busy. Time with Meredith, Lesley, taking church directory pictures, going for my postpartum doctors appointment and maybe going looking for a new family vehicle My car is a little on the small side for traveling so we may be getting a new one! Have a great week everyone. Leighann, when you are old enough to read this blog and see all the pics.......we love you so much and you are our precious angel! Mommy enjoying dressing up her little girl!

Ready to go to the mall!

We're back from the mall and hanging out on the pillow!

One Month!!

Sleeping Beauty!

Daddy and Leighann at picnic!

Mommy and Leighann at picnic! Ready to head home after an evening at church and our first picnic!

Her First Bath in her fish bathtub! (No more sponge baths!)

I cannot believe our little girl is already a month old. My goodness, how the time flys by. It seems like just yesterday that we held her for the first time. She is such a blessing and truly a good baby. She is sleeping about 3-4 hours at a time at night and still eating about the same amount of formula. She is beginning to hold her head up and look around, hold our hands and fingers (sooo cute!), look at us more clearly, pet the animals (yeah, with our help of course!) and so many other little things that bring us joy! Hope you all enjoyed the pics from this past week.

Four Weeks Old!!!

I cannot believe our little girl will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. We have enjoyed many things together this past week: Grandma visiting and helping out so much, Grandpa visiting for the weekend (and had to take Grandma home :(), Tummy Time mat fun, visits from Great Uncle Ricky and Great Aunt Jackie, visits from Russell and Meredith, Lesley and Carson and our sweet neighbor Jenna. We also got to go to church for the first time and she did so well. It was great to be in the Lord's house as a family and to worship our loving and gracious God together. Leighann is sleeping about 3 hours a time at night and about an hour or so at a time during the day. She is beginning to hold her head up a little on her own, loves looking at her bassinet mobile, and is loving smiling at her mommy and daddy. Enjoy the week in review of pics!
