12 weeks old!

I got busy and tired last week and missed posting her 11 week picture. But the pics from 12 weeks are WAY cuter, so I'll just post a few extra!!
We had an afternoon to ourselves today because I had to see the Dr. about my mastitis AGAIN. So we took advantage of it, got dressed up, and stapped a few pictures!!!
She was cracking me up with all of her different expressions!
She's totally flirting with the camera!!!
BIG blue eyes!
Perfect little features!
Some really fluffy hair!
Things got a little crazy when I tried to lie her on her belly on the couch! All she wanted to do was roll over!! Zoe protected her from rolling off of the couch!
Just a pretty little thing!
Future heartbreaker.
Mia is doing FABULOUS!!!! She has developed quite the personality! She will smile and coo at mommy and daddy, roll over from her belly to her back, can focus on objects, found her hands--which then found her mouth, and she knows when you leave the room--because she doesn't like to hang out alone anymore!! (not that I would leave her!!! I run to the bathroom and she doesn't like it when I leave her alone!)
Mia survived her 1st night alone without her mommy and daddy! We went to the PU/ND football game. We knew it would be way too late to pick her up, so she spent the night with her Mimi and Papaw! She won't have many overnights because I don't like leaving her!!! I got really sad when I got home and she wasn't here!!! I got up after only sleeping 4 hours to go get her!! She did GREAT for her Mimi and Papaw--slept through the night for them, too!
We have a VERY busy October! We will be doing something every Saturday AND Sunday!! Here's a peek at our month:
October 3rd--Purdue game (Mia will go if it's not too cold!)
October 4th--Haley, Mia and mommy to Indy for DeAnna and Fletcher's baby shower!!
October 10th--Mia and I to Indy to meet Fletcher and a spa day with the bride to be!
October 11th--Mia's Baptism in Muncie!
October 17th--Purdue game
October 18th--Brennan's Birthday Party!
October 24th--Emily and Ryan's Wedding!!!
October 25--Hopefully a day to RECOVER!!!!
Whew, I'm tired already thinking about all of this! :)
Mia's 3 month pictures are scheduled. Now we've gotta find an outfit!!!

18 months

Our little guy would have been 18 months old today. I miss him like crazy....

....wish I could hear these little feet running through the house. It's just not fair.
Losing a baby sucks.

Boiler Baby & our 1st 5k!

Even though our Boilermakers are having a hard time, Mia's still one of their biggest fans :)

Mia and Mommy at their 1st 5k run! The BeeBumble in Burnettsville, IN!
Mia's Mimi ran, too!!!
Emily and Evan before the race!!
Mia and I have been training with Emily and Evan for the past few weeks!!! We were able to run quite a bit before I went back to work, but now it's hard to find time!!!
After our 1st run with our babies!!! We were very happy with finishing in 33 minutes!!
Look at the cute hat I found for Mia at a garage sale!
Making a funny face while being a big girl!

10 weeks and other things

Hey blogging friends! I'm 10 weeks old today!!!
My mommy went back to work on Monday. Man, do I miss her!!! But luckily, she got me a really good babysitter who takes great care of me and spoils me too! :)
I smile lots for my mommy and daddy!!! I'm quite a ham when they get the camera out!

Mommy and Mia the morning of my 1st day back to work!!!
Ohhh HILARIOUS pictures of the grandkids! (I think Jenn was the only one who got a good one!)
hmmmm does miss Mia look a LITTLE like her mommy here??? Please say yes!!
No words to describe this picture!! HAHA
A little unsure of it all!!!!
Brennan was trying to get Jayden to sit between his legs and pose....
Such a great cousin!! Helping Mia with a bath at Aunt Haley's house!!! She tends to have a crabby time in the evenings, so when that time pops up, we stick her in the bath and it realllly calms her down!!
Mia's 2 month shots!!!
Took 3 grown ups to hold this 10lb baby down!! :)
Growing like a weed!! She's so perfect!!!
Weighed 10 lbs 12 oz
Length 23 inches
and 100% sweet! :)

Connor James

What a special way to remember our sweet baby boy....Too much for words. You just have to see the picture....pretty much takes my breath away...
Miss you sweet Connor!!!

We really enjoyed our first vacation as a family to South Haven!! A beautiful and quiet place to enjoy some time to ourselves!!!! We definitely want to go back next year and rent a big house ON THE BEACH with My parents, Justin & Haley and Blaine & Jenn...with all of the kids there too, of course!! It will be so much fun to hang out with all of them and watch our kids play on the beach together!!! I get excited just thinking about it!!! :)
Grad school and work both begin Monday the 14th! YIKES!!! Going to be one busy mama! So I will apologize in advance if I don't keep up in the blogging world! I'll at least try and get a weekly update, but my family, school and work come first :) ....then blogging!!
Wish me luck on this huge transition!

Countless birthdays....

He loves me so much, he even ran a 5k with me!

He's a singer....

A dog lover....

A proud father to Connor

A proud father to Mia
He's my husband and I love him so very much. I don't know what I would do without him.
Happy Anniversary. I can't wait for the years ahead of us!
I love you!
