I love my lamb

My Cookie gave me this lamb. Cookie is my Mommy's Mommy. I love my little lamb. She's pink (my favorite color) and oh so soft. I love talking to her and giving her kisses. She is special to me.
Giving Lamby kisses.

Me and Lamby.

Friends forever Lamby? :)

Finding Feet

We've been into our feet for awhile, but now they're in our mouth. And it's hilarious. We love staring at our feet and giggling at our feet. I'm not sure we know they're our own. We put them in our mouth today and made a funny face, like they didn't taste very good. It was hilarious. Enjoy pictures of our feet! :)

Angel Baby

Sunday was a special day for us. Our baby girl was a sweet angel in the children's choir performance. She was part of the preschool/nursery nativity during a couple of songs and she did wonderful! We were pleasantly surprised.

She was in an exersaucer covered with white sheets. The wings and halo were attached to the exersaucer, so they wouldn't bug her and she was so sweet. She was dressed all in white and was just beautiful!

Check out the sweet pictures of our angel!

Our sweet angel. And baby Jesus below her. He was played by a sweet friend's little boy. His name is Knox and he's 7 months. He did really well too.

Keeping that bottom lip tucked in, as always!

Our sweet angel!

22 Weeks and 5 Months pictures

Our sweet girl is 5 months old now or 22 weeks, however you want to look at it. She is growing so fast.
She is starting to sit up on her own, she eats baby food and has for a few weeks, she still has blue eyes, her hair is growing in, her cradle cap is almost gone, she has extra dry skin like her daddy, she laughs a little more each day and she smiles all the time. She is a joy! We have a true blessing from God.

22 weeks and a little pose for the camera!

5 months and her beautiful baby blues!

She's sticking out her baby belly for you! :)

Sitting Up

Yes, that's my baby sitting up... by herself. Yes, I want to cry because she's getting so big. No, she's not even 5 months yet. And yes, she tips over (see next pictures) and isn't great at it yet, but she can do it for a few seconds at a time. It's crazy!

Started to tip over!

My big girl, sitting up all by herself. Slow down Nyla. You're growing up too fast. Didn't I just have you? :)

19 weeks and 20 weeks pictures

Yes, I'm 2 weeks late on 19 weeks pictures and 1 on 20 weeks pictures! So sorry! It's crazy hard keeping house, 2 blogs and a baby all at the same time. Where does my week go???

We had a great 1st Thanksgiving with Nyla. She did awesome at the 2 places we went. 2 great naps before each event helped tremendously! We usually go to a 3rd event, but she goes to bed at 7:30 and she was completely exhausted, so we weren't about to do that to her. We planned on not going beforehand, but just seeing her tired face at the end of the day made us feel better about our decision.
It's crazy to think that last Thanksgiving I was about 5 weeks pregnant with her and now she's 4.5 months. Wow! Amazing!
These 19 week pictures are two days before Thanksgiving. Her onsie says "Baby's 1st Thanksgiving." So sweet!

Happy girl!

Girl loves her bed!

And here are her 20 weeks pictures. She's growing like a weed. Next Monday she'll be 5 months. This momma is going to cry! Time with our sweet one is flying by. I'm truly trying to enjoy every minute with her, every new thing she figures out and just being a mommy to our sweet angel.

She loves tucking her bottom lip up under her top. She's been doing this since birth, but she could be teething. I keep feeling for something, but there's nothing there... yet!

Sweet baby!

Her little cute scream thing has changed in the past week. She loves hearing herself, we think that's why she does it so much. It's hilarious.
She's also found her feet and is bringing them toward her mouth. She's been trying to grab them for a couple of weeks but has finally grabbed on and can hold on. It's become very interesting to change her diapers since she doesn't want to let go of her sweet feet.
And of course her giggles. Life doesn't get much better than that listening to them, having her smile at you and talking. She's started to grab our faces when we hold her close, it is precious. Ah, I love this baby!
