My Favorite Things! Baby Edition

Oh how life has changed with 2 in the house! Here are the things I can't live without currently :) if you don't know what something is for, you likely don't need it!

Things are still not perfect, but it helps!

This one is for Olivia.... a nursing session lasts about as long as this video

Maybe the only thing that keeps me from starving to death!

And last but not least, my friends! Thanks to everyone who has brought dinner in the last 3 weeks. Holy crap we got a lot of love! Thanks to yall, no one in this family withered away while I wasn't cooking :)

Embrace the Camera Thursday

Talk about embracing you as you truly are... 2 days of no shower, glasses, no make up, and a wonky eyed baby! This is real life friends :)

Wordless Wednesday

A little outside time with Grandpa :) Think it did them both good!

Embrace the Camera Thursday

That's me... 2 weeks post partum... so happy to have had my picture taken :)~ But really, I was so happy to have gotten out and played with Olivia! She had a blast at the park for a couple hours, while Ava slept in her stroller with Mimi nearby. Beautiful day in TN!

Welcome Ava Marie!!

Ava was born February 4, 2011 at 7:16 am. 8 pounds 4.5 ounces and 20 inches long. A whole pound bigger than her big sister was at birth!

Olivia has met her and seems to love her. She sort of forgot she was here for a while, but then looked around confused and said "where's the baby?" All worried like. So cute! She wants to touch her and so forth and we are planning on encouraging her but not forcing the issue when she doesn't want anything to do with her, as will for sure happen with Miss Attitude Olivia!

Matt is going to go spend the day with Olivia and take her home. She has rarely been away from home, and is a little confused. Having Daddy all to herself for the day will be a great thing for her. But not until she comes and visits in a little while! I miss her :(

Ava is a loud little thing! She came out screaming, and has since made herself heard! But she also seems pretty mellow, so that's a weird combo! We will see what the future holds :)

Love her, love my Olivia, love my husband. Life is great!

Oh some fun things, one of my best friends, Katie, just started working in the nursery here, so she was Ava's nurse all day yesterday! So much fun! And all the babies got red knit hats for Women's Heart Awareness (or something...) Day. Precious!
