Special moments

Keaton had her first stroller ride this past week. We watched brother bear ride his bike and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

Nathan and I also got to go to the Lowe's build this weekend. It was nice to have some mommy and Nathan time.

Fun at Great Grandma's house

On Thursday Tripp's mom, Keaton, and I went to Tripp's grandmother's house to get a sewing lesson and let Keaton spend some QT with her GREAT grandma!
I finally know how to thread a bobbin and sew a straight stitch on my machine, thanks to one of Grandma's care takers! Before the "lesson" the only thing I could do was turn the machine on. Ha!
The best part of our visit was when Tripp's grandma got down in the floor (on her own!!) to play with Keaton. No one could believe that she was able to this, but she was determined to! It was such a special moment and even though Keaton won't remember it, I hope that she will look back at the pictures and know just how much she means to her Great Grandma.

Keaton-One Month

My sweet Keaton,
  You turned one month old on February 18th. Mommy may have sang Happy Birthday to you when you woke up for your "night cap" around 2 in the morning! ha!
It seems like yesterday we were on our way to the hospital to have you, time is flying by. It seems like what everyone says is true, time flies by faster than the first one.

You are so snuggly. You love to curl up in a ball on mommy and daddy's tummies. If allowed we are pretty sure you would be a tummy sleeper. Speaking of sleeping it seems like that's all you do, well expect at night. You are a night owl and I'm not sure where you get that from considering daddy and I love to go to bed early!

Seeing you and Nathan together makes my heart burst at the seams. He loves you so much and is always watching out for you. He is so quick to let me know if you are crying and often I will find him standing over your pack and play talking to you and making sure you have your binkie. I pray that you all will be the best of friends (despite the age difference between the two of you), I think you all are off to a great start!

You had many firsts this month...

It was the first time meeting your Uncle William who met up with us at Mom Mom and Pop Pop's house on your first trip to their house!  (Mommy wishes she had a better picture).
You attended your first church service and you got to hear your Uncle Todd preach for the first time, you were a good girl and slept the majority of the service.
You also celebrated your first Valentine's Day! 
 First bath! Daddy and I think you're going to be a water baby!

We are so glad that HE picked us to be your family!  We are so blessed to have you in our lives and love you very much!

We love you sweet girl!

"Beary Lovely"

I still need to post Keaton's birth story as well as more tid bits about our little princess.
The truth is I haven't even turned on my computer in over a month. I've been enjoying our girl!

Valentine's Day 2012

I had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday. I'm so lucky to have an added Valentine this year! ;)

Then again, maybe not! ;)

I made Pioneer Woman's grilled riveted with onion-blue cheese sauce, twice baked potatoes, and cheese fondu for my guys. It was yummy!

Hope y'all had a great Valentine's Day too!
