Pray for Ellyn

My friend, Ellyn, could really use a lot of extra prayer tonight. She is 32 weeks pregnant and is having an emergency c-section on her little girl right now. She is without this special bear--it was supposed to be making it's way to Florida tomorrow, but little baby "bindi" couldn't wait, so we're making do with posting pictures of this watchful eye.


This was Seth's Birthday bear representing Eli watching over him in the NICU. She so graciously sent him on to me to watch over during Mia's birth.
Praying so hard for a safe delivery and healthy baby.....

Mia's 1st Thanksgiving

OK. Before we get to her Thanksgiving picture, I had to share this little Colts fan wrapped up in a pretty little box :)

Slacker!

I was informed tonight I was being a blog slacker :) Here are some pictures from our fun weekend!!!
Welcome Jayden William, to All Saints Catholic Church!!!


Haley, Justin, Jayden, Stu & Rita (the godparents)
Look at that sweet little man :)

Mia watching the colts and playing with Jayden's book. Poor thing doesn't have any "fun" toys at home, so she plays with Jayden's when we go over to his house!!
Mommy & Mia!
Super cheesey Mia
Lookin all cute in her tommy dress that we got from sweet angel Parker.

We're here :)

24 1/2 Inches Long

12 lbs 12 oz of squeezable sweetness
Melting the heart of her daddy everyday
Mia's 1st craft! She made this at her babysitter's house!
Mia's Thanksgiving Turkey
Thankful for those tiny little hands that made her turkey's feathers.........

I've been experimenting...... Mia has decided to NOT sleep through the night anymore :( We stopped swaddling her and thought maybe that was why. Come to find out, we think that she wasn't getting quite enough to eat. She has gone from eating 3-5 oz bottles at Christina's to eating 3-7 oz bottles!! She's a HUNGRY GIRL!!!!! I even broke down and tried cereal Monday night. She ended up with more on her clothes than in her tummy, I think! That was a rough night...she was up 4 times, so I don't know if the cereal gave her a tummy ache or what happened!!!

No more cereal mommy. Dr. Reyes said I didn't need it :)

Motorboating!

4 months old!

Look who's so happy to be 4 months old!!!!


Is loving to play on the floor and kick!
Wondering why mommy is making all of these funny sounds!

She looks onery here!
Snoozing in her bed, such a big girl!
Came SO CLOSE to rolling over! We've been working so hard, but still no luck!
Playing in her bumbo seat early Saturday morning!
Checkin out all of the toys!
What can I say, Mia is AWESOME! We are so in love with this beautiful, blue eyed girl. She has a new bedtime, it's now between 7:30 & 8:00 (usually closer to 7:30) and then sleeps until 5 or 6 a.m. She is still being swaddled because she doesn't sleep thru the night if she isn't--we'll work on breaking that soon, maybe over my Thanksgiving break! Mia has learned how to motorboat, it's so funny!!! Hopefully will get that video up soon!
She goes to the Dr. this Friday for her wellness checkup and shots. I'll post how big our baby girl has gotten after her checkup!

There's a Wocket in my Pocket!

You guess it! Dr. Seuss! Guess who loves to look at books and listen to mommy read them to her? I'll give you a hint--she's got blue eyes and a cute little dimple under her left eye!!!



I thank God every night for this beautiful blessing.
