Catch Up::

Hi Darling’s… I know I know, it has been a few months! Lydia is 6 months old and I am way behind… I need to do a little catch up before the crazy holiday’s start up tomorrow! Lydia is our greatest adventure she is an amazing baby.. we are so lucky! She eats 3 “solid” meals a day, sleeps 8pm-8am and hardly ever cries. She naps once in the morning and then just little 20 min cat naps through out the rest of the day. She smiles all the time, loves the camera and enjoys watching her fur brother roam the house. She is sitting up on her own and learning to roll from her back to her tummy (she rolled stomach to back at 8 weeks, and has rolled from her back to her stomach.. but were still working on that one.) She isn’t quite ready to crawl yet, but that is alright, she will get there soon enough. Lydia also has 2 bottom middle teeth and enjoys playing with her toes, and putting them in her mouth. She does the most amazing belly laughs, and “talks” all the time! We love our sweet pea more than words can say!! Here are a few monthly photos, to get you caught up!

One Month::

Hello! I am still in shock at how fast time is going… Lydia is already a month old. We headed to the doctor today for her one month wellness check and her shot “poor baby” I was “that” mother crying during her shot. Lydia did great all things considered. Our lives have changed so much in this past month, everything revolves around our sweet baby girl and her needs and I wouldn’t want it any other way! To remember how tiny she was I took a few photos and even included some milestones and likes, dislikes to remember for years to come. Happy one month baby girl- you are our world!

Lydia Grace::

Hello! We welcomed a beautiful baby girl Tuesday May 3rd, 2016. Born at 8:19 am weighing 8lbs and 20 inches long full head of dark hair and long eyelashes! We are so in love! Lydia has been home for almost a week and everyday is more amazing! I had an amazing first mothers day… still can’t believe we have a daughter. She is absolutely perfect! She is alert and loves to snuggle with mommy and daddy… not a fan of bath time yet. She is a good eater and has been sleeping 6 hours through the night.. just crazy! We are extremely lucky and blessed to have Lydia in our lives! She made us a family and we will forever be grateful! She is peacefully sleeping next to me and I just keep looking over and smiling- she is just so tiny.. She is wearing newborn clothing and sleep sacks are an amazing invention! Well more later! Here are a few photos of our sweet Lydia at one week old!

37 Weeks::

Hello! Spring is finally here and we are days away from meeting our little bundle! The nursery is set, we had the second baby shower this past weekend and it was a huge success… love seeing everyone and hearing all about how excited they are for baby to arrive. Everyone (Cory and I especially) are anxiously awaiting to discover if baby is a boy or girl! We have washed and folded everything and I think I have reorganized the room a hundred times. The carpet in the basement has been installed and the playroom has toys and books ready to go! Ready…Set…Baby!
