First Easter Basket

Sophia was a very patient little girl on Easter. She waited all day to get her first Easter basket. She finally got to open her basket when we got home from Nana and Pappy's.

In her first Easter basket Sophia received 2 books: "What is Easter?" and "God's Dream", bubbles, gummi bears and chocolate eggs. The candies just happened to be her mom and dad's favorites. Sophia kindly offered the candy to her parents. She is already so generous ;)

Easter Fun!

As promised here are more pictures from Sophia's first Easter!

After lunch and Sophia's nap we had a little Sophia photo shoot. Sophia's Uncle David is a photographer so he got some great shots!

Sophia and her Pappy (Karen's dad)

Family shot! There were 3 cameras going so we didn't know where to look!

Sophia with her Nana and Pappy

Sophia did a great job having her picture taken about a hundred times. She is so calm and sweet.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!

The Lord is risen! Alleluia!

Sophia had a wonderful first Easter. We celebrated with all the grandparents and Sophia's Aunt Laura, Uncle Mark, and Uncle David. Sophia did great napping at her Nana and Pappy's and having a million pictures taken of her.

Here is my sweet girl in her Easter outfit. She loved sitting in the special rocking chair Nana and Pappy have for her. I can't believe how big she looks in this picture! She is growing so fast!

More to come, including pictures of Sophia with her very first Easter basket :)

3 months!

My newborn is now officially an infant! I love all the new things she can do now that she is a baby and not a newborn but I miss my teeny tiny newborn too!

3 months has also marked the end of my maternity leave :( and less napping in the baby carrier for Sophia. Big changes for our little one. We've noticed more crying the last few days and can only imagine it is because of all these changes. Hopefully, we all adapt quickly so our little one can get back to her happy, snugly self.

On a happier note, Sophia is quite the chatterbox! She greets us each morning with lots of coos and babbles and is always chatting and babbling throughout the day! It is the sweetest sound. Sophia has learned so many new things over the last month it has been incredible to watch! She has mastered playing with rattles and her bouncy chair, rolled over a few times... the list goes on! I feel so blessed to be her mom and watch her learn and grow!

As you may have noticed we went with a dinosaur theme this month. Sophia's daddy set up the shots. Thanks for the awesome dinosaur onesie Emily, Drew and Asher and for the cute dinosaur blanket Emily P.

At 3 months Sophia:

  • Wears size 0-3 month clothes and some 3-6 month

  • Weighs about 12lbs 11oz

  • Sleeps anywhere from 10-12 hours a night only waking up 1x if at all

  • Takes 3-4 naps a day starting this week in her crib

  • is swaddled when she sleeps in her crib

  • loves her playmat and bouncy seat

  • has mastered grabbing on to toys and hitting the toys on her bouncy seat to make the music go

  • has rolled over from front to back 5 times and once from back to front

  • loves silly faces and noises

  • loves when you tickle her face with a soft toy

  • loves splashing in her bath tub and grabbing her duck toy between her feet

  • can prop herself up on her elbows (with assistance) and hold her head 90 degrees when on her tummy

working woman

and baby girl :)

Last week I went back to work part-time and Sophia came with me! My boss was kind enough to offer to let me bring Sophia to work so we gave it a try! Sophia did great and was definitely very popular in the office :)

Here we are ready for our day!

Sophia loves watching mom work :)

Something looks really interesting over there...if only I could get to it

Oh getting closer

ahhh someone save me!
(sorry for the odd angle...can't get the picture to upload correct....she's on her stomach if you can't tell)

Yep...Sophia has now rolled over from front to back 2 times and once from back to front! I have a feeling before long she'll be rolling all over!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Sophia wanted to wish her Grandpa a Happy Birthday!

We helped Grandpa celebrate on Saturday with a yummy lunch made by Grandma. Sophia added something extra special to the cake by sneezing all over it. Amazing what babies can get away with :)

Hope you have a great day Gramps! If you want I'll come sneeze on your lunch today too!

playing with my toys take 2!

In just a few short days Sophia learned how to play with the toys on her playmat! She no longer needs her mom and dad, she can hit and grab the rattles all on her own! Go Sophia!

Look at those eyes so focused on that turtle and the little hand giving him a good swat.

Look at that little hand hanging on tight!

I'm sure you can imagine the proud parents cheering her on :)
