I have some catching up to do

As we all know, being a mom is tough work! I would love to be able to blog everyday but it isn't realistic. Everyday Marlee does something different. I love it!!

On February 24th she rolled over! Granted she hasn't done it since, so it could have been a fluke happening. Regardless I let out a yell from being so excited.

This video only shows her rolling halfway over, but it's equally as exciting.

Here is another video, in it Marlee is talking to me...another exciting moment.

On Marlee's 1 month birthday Uncle Boyfriend (my sister's boyfriend, Greg) took pictures of her. He is a photography major and wanted to build up his portfolio for school. So naturally I let him take as many as he wants (it doesn't hurt to have great pictures taken of my baby girl!). Here are some of the ones he took and edited.







On February 22nd we went for Marlee's 2 month check up and shots. She was 10.14 lbs and 21.75 inches! She's getting so big, sometimes I can't believe it. The appointment went pretty well, she is growing great, her heart and lungs sound great. The only thing her pediatrician found wrong is possible hip displasia. We went for X-rays the next day and are waiting to hear the results. Please keep her in your T&Ps!

new blog

I completely destroyed my old blog! I made a new one and imported all of my old posts to this new blog. It makes me REALLY happy that I am able to do this because I was afraid of losing everything I had documented. Now it's a matter of following everyone again!

Marlee is 2 months old!!

I cannot believe it has been two months since my precious angel was born! It honestly feels like it was yesterday. She has grown so much. She is finding her voice and smiling up a storm. I'm so so excited to see what the next month brings for us!

I am blessed to have a healthy baby

Not all people are as lucky as Scot and I. While Marlee was in the NICU I wondered constantly if she would be healthy. Were her lungs strong enough? I am so happy that everything turned out well for our child. I am so wrapped up in our daily routine that I don't thank God for the gift he has given us; a beautiful, healthy baby girl.

I hate that I take for granted these little things. I guess I get so distracted with everyday's happenings; the feedings, the burpings, the diaper changing. I am so so so very thankful for my daughter. I absolutely cannot imagine life without her, nor do I remember life before her. She is my life. This is why God put me on this earth, for her. That is just amazing.
