Exciting Night :)

Why was last night so exciting? Because the BIG GIRL (she weighed 9 lbs 12oz yesterday) slept from midnight until almost 7am this morning!!! We had to go poke her just to make sure everything was okay, the grunt she let bout was a relief (then a seg-way into a happy dance). Of course she was wide awake from about 7pm until midnight last night and ate like a champ at her 7 and 11:15 feedings (between 5 and 6 oz!) Our little monkey is getting even more chunky!! :) She is so adorable, we sit there, stare at her and are in awe of her beauty and the miracle we see before us. Thank you Lord for this little angel!!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!!! May all of you be blessed and enjoy this magical weekend honoring the amazing people known as MOTHERS. Remember to thank your mom, wife, grandmother, godmother, etc; they are the pillars of our families! Enjoy pictures of our little bundle of joy. Thank you Meredith for her tummy time pillow, she loves it!!

For my family......

Happy Mother's day Mom, I love you and appreciate all that you have done for me(even though I don't tell you all the time!)

Happy Mother's day honey, you are such an unbelievable mother and Isabella is so lucky to have such a loving mother (and I am lucky to have you as my wife!).

Happy Mother's day grandmommy, thank you for showing your daughter how to be such an amazing mother and being her best friend!

Happy Mother's day Mama, I miss you so much and can't wait to see you soon!!

Yay! It's amazing what a little sleep can do for your sanity! Hang in there... once they start sleeping and showing their personality more, they are a lot of fun! I remember thinking that 4-10 months was a piece of cake compared to the sleepless newborn stage.... then the Little Man started crawling. :-)

Oh gosh - that is such a great milestone! I remember that with Mallory. Enjoy it - she is growing up fast! Give her many kisses and enjoy your first MOTHERS DAY! You deserve it!
