Cute Baby Headbands!

I love bows and headbands on baby girls. Especially big bows! But I just don't think they go with casual clothes. And sadly, Addie doesn't have enough hair to hold her clippies yet.

I was browsing craft blogs when I was pregnant and I came up on a great tutorial for making cute and simple baby headbands on Emilie Handmade. I set a bookmark just knowing that I would use it someday.

Well, today was the day! These headbands are so easy to make and sooo cute. They are the perfect headbands for every day wear. I even think they look cute with pajamas! (I only know this because I tried one on Addie and she happened to be wearing a sleeper at the time.) And I was able to make 6 in 30 minutes....6!! Well, just wanted to share the fun.

Katie Turns Two!!

I had such a great time yesterday! I was able to spend some time with great friends to celebrate Katie's second birthday. She was so excited that it was finally her big day!

Katie's mother, Amy, and I have been friends for almost 11 years. I was in her wedding and she was in mine. I was there the day she found out she was pregnant and the day that Katie was born. And she spent forever and ever at the hospital with me while we were waiting for Addie to make an appearance. We share some great memories! And I am glad to add her daughter's second birthday party to the list.

We had some great weather, so I took Addie outside. Uncle Andy showed her the bubbles and she went on the swing for the first time.

We had a great time, and Addie was exhausted by the time we left. Thanks for sharing your day with us...Happy Birthday Katie!

Valentine's Day & Addie's First Solids

My little valentine in her Valentine's Day outfit.

She loved her surprise! It went in her mouth shortly after this was taken.

Last night, while most people were celebrating their love for each other, we were celebrating the chance to give Addie her first taste of solid food. And it was great! She was so hungry she kept crying between each bite.

I think she loved it. The proof is in the picture!

Blogging in Style!

Check out my new toy!

Gone are the days of making time to get in there on the computer to rush through a blog while Addie is taking a short nap. I can now blog from the comfort of my very own couch...or recliner depending on my mood. :)

Wes and I decided it was time to invest in a laptop and wireless internet and I am so glad we finally did. So not a necessity, but it is nice to splurge on a toy every now and again.

We've been busy....

To say we've been busy lately just might be an understatement!

I celebrated a birthday a couple of weeks 29th! Last birthday in my 20s and it couldn't have been better! Addie made me a card with her daddy's help, and I got to spend some quality time with family. Of course, Addie was the star of the show, though. :)

Here she is with her great-grandfather, Papa, and with her great-grandmother, Nane.

Last weekend, Wes and I went on our first date since Addie was born. It was really great to spend some time really focusing on each other without interruption. We went to a wedding, shopping and out for a nice quiet dinner. All of that and still in bed by 8:30...please, don't judge! We are tired around our place.

Addie spent the night at my parents' house, and she did great. They really enjoyed having her, and I really enjoyed 11 straight hours of glorious, heavenly sleep. :)

On Tuesday we went to see Stephanie and Mandy at Stephanie Fisher Photography. We always have a great time with them, and they are sooo great at what they do.

We will get a slideshow of all the proofs in a couple of weeks, but here are the pictures from the sneak peak.

The family picture is going to be hanging over our couch ASAP!

And, sadly Addie turned 4 months old this week! She is growing up too fast. She wasn't able to get her shots because she has an ear infection, but she is growing like a weed. My "little" girl weighed 16 pounds and 4 ounces and is 25 1/4 inches long.

Anyone know how I might be able to slow down the whole growing up thing?? Advice would be much appreciated!

Best Invention Ever!

We love our Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo! Little girl is content to sit, somewhat bounce, look at lights and "talk" for at least 45 minutes...sometimes longer. :)

And there are times where she will just fall asleep sitting in it. Such hard work...being a baby and all.
