Christmas is coming...

I cannot believe Christmas is next week. We finally got our shopping, baking and decorating all done. It's a completely new experience doing it all with a 6 week old!

We thought it would be a good idea to send out Christmas cards/birth announcements this year so that all of our out of state family and friends could see pictures of Amelia,
well, this is the best we got...We hope your Christmas is as "merry" as ours!

Needless to say she wasn't thrilled with me for putting that dress on her, and there was no hope of getting her to smile.

Amelie will be 7 weeks on Tuesday and she's changing so much. This past week she grew out of all of her newborn clothes, we are now into 0-3 month sizes! And a BIG excitement for the week... her first laugh! She was sleeping in her car seat while I was driving home and she laughed, more like squealed, but it was the most adorable sound. Tim and I have tried everything this week to try and get her to do it again but have had no luck.

We are so excited to celebrate this Christmas with our new daughter. I know she won't remember any of it but we've got her presents and stocking all ready to go for Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas, we hope all of you have a wonderful holiday celebrating with family and friends!

Til next time...

Just "hanging" out! This is her favorite position, especially when her tummy is upset!
One month old... growing so much

You'd think she never slept!
Always so alert!

Sleeping in the cradle Grandpa made!

We are having so much fun watching out little peanut grow. At one month she is now 8lbs 14 ounces! What a fatty! We've started a schedule and are slowly working at getting her to sleep in her crib (rather than in our room)... she screems everytime we put her down. She's developed colic and has her mommy's tummy, it's very sensitive so mommy has to watch what she eats. And at one month after giving birth I am 3 pounds under my pre pregnancy weight! YAY!
Starting Monday our house will be a little quieter though. Tim goes back to work so it'll be just us girls at home! It's been so wonderful having him home for the past four weeks. Although Tim getting laid off wasn't really a wonderful thing, we feel blessed that God gave him the time to get to know his daughter. ANd now we feel even more blessed that he has been given a new job!
I'll post pictures of our Christmas cards next time... once everyone that I sent them to has received them... it was quite an experience getting a 3 week old to smile!
Until next time!
