I'm a perfectly happy and healthy baby girl!

Day 117 - September 19, 2011

Like every parent, I like to think my baby's a genius, but today, I'm even more convinced of that fact. It's funny, today, a friend of Greg's posted on Facebook that their 5-month-old son just rolled over for the first time (hooray!) and I was thinking, it won't be long before our Adelyn is rolling over. I didn't know how true that statement would be.

About 10 minutes later, Adelyn was playing on her polka dotted blanket; reaching for her toes and sucking on her fingers. I watched her swing her right leg over her body and back again. She's getting her leg pretty far over, I thought. I ran into the bedroom to get the Flip cam, you know, just in case. And thank goodness I did. Less than 1 minute later, on day 117, my sweet baby girl rolled over from her back to her stomach for the first time! I'm such a proud mommy! Check her out!

(Please excuse the proud mommy commentary throughout the video.)

In a matter of hours, Adelyn turned into a rolling machine! We spent the afternoon visiting with Holly and Easton, and Addy was eager to show off her new skill. She wouldn't stay on her back for more than a minute before rolling over. We can't wait to show Daddy tonight!

Day 116 - September 18, 2011

"Greg? Do you smell poop?"

Can you guess where we changed Adelyn's latest poop explosion?

"Now if only I could figure out a way to get this yummy foot into my mouth."

Day 113 - September 15, 2011

You are my sunshine,

My only sunshine.

You make me happy

When skies are grey.

You'll never know, dear,

How much I love you.

So please don't take my sunshine away.

Day 112 - September 14, 2011

Almost Wordless Wednesday...

Dear Opa,

Thank you for adding some blue to my very pink wardrobe!

Love, Addy

Day 111 - September 13, 2011

I can't stop staring at this gorgeous girl.

I am so in love!

Day 110 - September 12, 2011

I'm feeling so much better today. No fever since Sunday morning and minimal pain. So thankful my immune system is strong enough to fight off the infection without antibiotics.

Since I was feeling so well, we headed over to little 1-week-old Easton's home to attempt a newborn photo shoot.

After several attempts, the set up was as far as we got. Sweet little sleepy Easton preferred to rest in the warmth of his mommy's arms and I don't blame him one bit.

Once Easton was settled back down, Addy jumped in on the action.

I'm hoping both Adelyn and Easton are up for a second attempt tomorrow.

Day 109 - September 11, 2011

Good news: I finally connected what I initially assumed were unrelated symptoms and figured out the source of my fever and chills.

Bad news: I have a bout of mastitis.

Good news: I cannot pass my symptoms on to Greg and Adelyn.

Day 108 - September 10, 2011

It's so hard to be a good Mommy when I have a fever of 102 degrees. I'm just praying that this sweet thing doesn't get it.

Day 107 - September 9, 2011

We just melt every time she looks up at us with those beautiful blue eyes!

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Day 106 - September 8, 2011

There is a picture, that used to hang on our fridge back home, of my husband and I in our mother's arms when we were less than 1 year old. I think back to that photo often and it amazes me that somehow, 19 years later, our paths crossed and we fell madly in love. And now today, we have a beautiful daughter and I spend my days looking into her eyes and dreaming about all the joys her life may hold. I dream about the day she'll take her first steps. I dream about watching her Daddy walk her down the aisle. And today, I'm dreaming that maybe one day, she'll look at this picture and just like her Mommy, she'll say, "This was the day I met my husband."

Day 103 - September 5, 2011

One of the best parts of our day is when we get to video chat with family back home.

It was so much fun to watch my nephews working so hard to try to make their little cousin laugh today.

And so adorable to see Noah and Adelyn sporting their matching "My Auntie is #1" shirts!

I can't wait for the day when these cousins can finally meet in person!
