The Mad Dash

We decided to take a quick trip to Vegas over the weekend. Jonathan's parents, sister, brother in law, and two neices live there as well as my aunt and uncle and my grandmother. It was a really fun trip and we got to show Adie off to a lot of people.

A Perfect Gentleman

Adie and I were hanging out with Ashley and Isaac last week and I got some of the cutest pictures. He was being so sweet and so careful with Adie. He would kiss her little head and tell Ashley, "Adie wants to slide down my slide with me," or "Adie wants to sit on my couch with me." It just melted your heart. Isaac is such a perfect little gentleman. He was so gentle when he held her and he was just beaming the whole time. He will make such an awesome big brother!!

One Month Old!!

I can't believe my baby is a month old today! That went by pretty fast, maybe it was because of all the late nights and early mornings that I just lost track of days. But the fact is my sweet baby girl is a month old today, and before I know it she'll be 2, then 10, then 16, then 18 Ohhhh!! I don't want to think about it, I just want her to stay itty bitty forever! I wonder if that is possible. I swear just yesterday I was in the labor room munching on popsicles, watching movies, and chit chatting with Jonathan during my 13 hour labor just waiting for her to get here and now she's a month old!! My, how the time does fly by quick when you aren't paying attention. But oh, she is so precious and I absolutely love and adore her. I love this picture, Ashley took it when she came to visit me in the hospital (thanks Ash!!). Adie looks so sweet and precious. My nurses in the hospital rocked and they made her such a cute name tag to sport around in when she was in the nursery.
I can't believe how itty bitty Adie was... 6lbs and 9 oz. And now she is turning into a little tank. We weighted her the other day and she is over 7lbs and 10 oz.

This is Adie's first real bath the night her cord fell off, and boy was I glad to see that thing go, I was always afraid that it would cut her little tummy and hurt her, She was very relaxed during her bath. Her facial expressions are the best! Sleeping is by far one of Adie's favorite things to do and mine is just to hold her and stare at her all day long (no wonder my house never gets clean!!).
I love this picture, they both are so content in each other's arms. My hubby and baby make such a cute pair.

My Mr. Amazing

So, I have to tell you how simply amazing my husband is... He is completely perfect, in every way possible. Let me explain why.... Over the weekend I was trying to be a good little wife and decided to clean out the fridge. I started to put expired food down the garbage disposal and to make a long story short, I totally clogged the pipes in my kitchen sink (note to self; big spaghetti noodles don't go down the drain very well). When water and yucky stuff started shooting back up at me I screamed and who but my amazing Jonny came running to my rescue. We tried for about 30 minutes to get it cleaned out (using a plunger and a coat hanger) and we ended up finding out our pipes were all corroded. So we went to good old Wal-Mart, got the parts we needed and my amazing Mr. Fix-It replaced the pipes and everything was a good as new in 30 minutes. Jonny ALWAYS comes to my rescue, he is my perfect Prince Charming. I love him so very very much and am so happy that he proposed to me almost 3 years ago. I love you Jonny, more than you can possibly imagine!!! Thank you baby for everything you do for me and for Adie. We love you!!!
I LOVED my wedding day, everything was perfect and I married my best friend, what could be better?
He is so hot!! This picture was taken while we were driving down to California on our honeymoon. We went on a cruise, it was a total blast!
This is Jonathan with his Dad and brothers in Boston. They all met up there to surprise Dad for his 60th birthday.
My amazing husband keeps me laughing all the time. I love his sense of humor and always have the best time whenever I am with him!

My Two Favorite People

These two are my absolute favorite people in the world... my amazing husband and my precious baby girl. I cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am that Jonathan took two weeks off of work to help me with Adalyn. It has been SO nice to have him home these past two weeks. Adalyn has just been an absolute joy to have in the house. Granted, the midnight, 2am, and sometimes 4am feedings and not getting to bed until the wee hours of the morning haven't been the greatest, but it is all totally worth it. I guess that's what happens when you have a newborn. I am however, very excited for Adalyn to get into a better sleeping pattern so that Jonathan and I can start sleeping too, but that will come soon enough. Okay, so here are some more pixs of Adie and what we have been up to the last two weeks.

Nana and Papa White came to visit Adie over this past weekend. It was so much fun to watch Mom and Dad with Adie, I think she has become the new favorite grandchild!!!

I just love this picture of Adie, she is getting fatter and is totally chill after a good feeding and she is ready to hit the beach in her Hawaiian onesie.
