2 Months Old

This upcoming week in my last week of maternity leave. I'm trying to make the most of it by doing everything I can think of with baby eel during the day. We go shopping, play on the floor, and take lots of naps. :")

Baby eel's blessing is on May 3. I sent out a bunch of announcements/invitations. If you didn't get one, I apologize, but you are still definitely invited to her blessing.  It will be at 9 am at our church in Payson.

Here are some pictures I took this week of baby eel.  Once the weather gets a little nice and I lose a little more weight we're going to have some family pictures taken. Woohoo!

6 Weeks Old

Baby eel is getting so big. She's starting to get too big for her 3 month outfits. Which is actually okay with me, because all her really cute stuff is 3-6 months... :")

I've started going to yard sales again this summer. We don't have a stroller for her yet, so that's top on my list of things we need.  I see them every Summer, sometimes there are really nice ones for a really cheap price. Once we get a stroller, I think Daniel and I will go on walks with baby eel and Tonks. It will be so much fun!

I think I've lost almost all the weight from the baby, but I still feel a little... "squishy." I've never had an issue with my weight, so this is new territory for me. I guess this means I'll have to start exercising.

And last random topic of the night... I got a new calling. I'm the assistant Primary Pianist. Best calling ever. Basically I can just show up and play. Baby eel can sit in her carseat next to the piano, and I'll feel like I'm contributing to the ward again.

Here are some pictures of baby eel this week.

Week 5

Baby eel is getting sweeter by the day. I love to get out my camera and take pictures of her whenever I can. I'll be so sad to go back to work in three weeks.

I'm still not having any luck getting her to nap in her bassinet. Let me show you what I mean.
Not even joking. How do you combat that?

Good thing she has her sweet moments.

Daddy has hair!
She's definitely worth the trouble.

Good Morning!

I think Abigail is cutest in the morning.  This morning she was being especially cute with smiles and coos. I tried to record it, but of course by the time I got my computer ready, she wasn't as cute.  But, here is a short clip for your enjoyment.

4 Weeks Old!

Abigail is four weeks old today. I can't believe I've been a mom for a whole month. And that I only have 4 weeks of maternity leave left.. so sad.

Abigail is getting so close to smiling. She is so cute in the morning when she first wakes up. She's all stretchy and makes all sorts of cute coo's. It's kind of hard to tell from the picture above, but that is a smile/coo.

We got our birth announcements in the mail yesterday. I'm excited to send them out this week.

I brought Abigail by the office yesterday, and she was such a sweetheart. It's nice to have a cute, easy baby to take places. Then people actually want to hold her.  It was fun to see everyone at work. Part of me is a little excited to go back and be in the thick of things again. Unfortunately, I know that won't last.

Hope you have a wonderful April Fool's Day. If you haven't already, you should check out Google's main page today. It's really funny.
