Date Night

Last night we went on our very first date night with out the baby. It was hard to leave her, but she was in great hands with Aunt Camille and Julianna.
We went to Jasper's with Tiff and Robby. We had a great bottle of wine and yummy food. It was such a nice night that we went and got ice cream after and just visited for a bit.
I only checked in once and Camille said she great.
It was so nice to get out, but I could not wait to get home to my girl.

1 Month Dr.'s Visit

so big!!!!

We went to the dr. for our 1 month visit.

You are now 9 pounds 7 ounces, that is a 2 pound gain in 2 love to eat!!!!

You grew a quarter of an inch in length putting you at 20 3/4 inches.

And your head is measuring in the 50th percentile.

You also got your very first shot. Mommy could not bear to hold you so Aunt Camille did. You screamed for a second and then I nursed you and you were ok. It brought tears to my eyes.

Your so beautiful!!!

1 Month

Madeline, you turned one month today!
I can hardly believe it!!

This is what you have been up to sweet girl.....

You are still in newborn diapers.
You wear a lot of newborn onsies because it's the only thing that seems to fit you, but you are about to outgrow those any minute.
You are eating about every two hours. I try to put you off a bit, but you just SCREAM when you are hungry. The other day I noticed that you sucked your arm so hard that you gave yourself a blood blister.
Some nights you sleep really well and others you are pretty restless. I will say you love to sleep on my chest.
You are very sweet and hardly make a peep except when you are hungry or need to burp.

You have been such a joy since the day we met you. It's true when you hear that you never know true love until you have a child of your own. You are the light of our lives.

Love your mommy and daddy.

Mother's Day

Yesterday I celebrated my very first real Mother's day. I say real because ever since Hannah has been in my life we have always celebrated this day, but yesterday was extra special for me. Corey and Hannah made it so memorable. They surprised me with a beautiful brunch. Corey never ceases to amaze me with his cooking skills.
Then we headed to Mom's to celebrate with her. She is such an amazing example of a mother.

Me with my two beautiful girls.

Blessed.....I wish I could come up with a better, more descriptive word to explain how I feel.
Last year at this time, I remember being in church watching all the mommy's and daddy's dedicate their children. Wondering and hoping that one day I would get to be a mommy. I remember crying, well...sobbing, thinking I may never get that chance. Well, here I am holding the most amazing little miracle in the world. The past three weeks have been the most exciting, rewarding, exhausting and challenging of my life.....days that I would not change for anything. I am amazed every day that I am Madeline's mommy. I thank God for the privilege of loving and nurturing this little girl.
I am Blessed!!!!!
