Enjoying Life!!!

I'm so in love! Who knew you could fall in love over and over again!!! I'm done now by the way! Falling! First comes the hubby and I'm more in love with him everyday, then LH....then sweet Magpie!!! I hope I'll be okay when I have to go back to work. I have a little over a week left!
But, this falling in love thing is partially the reason I've been MIA lately. I have been really getting out and about and enjoying every minute of my time with sweet baby girl!
I feel good, rested and just giddy! Going from a threesome to a foursome was a little rocky in the beginning due to lack of sleep and all the changes we had in a short period of time, but now we are adjusting and getting into our new normal!
As much as I don't want to go back to work (well, maybe a little) I'll be a much better blogger when I do. Lunch breaks are awesome for that!!
See you soon, I promise!


Wish I could hold her back!

I didn't have a bumbo with LH....I borrowed this one from a friend and didn't think Magpie would be ready yet, but I was wrong!!!! WOW, she looks so big and grown up in this! So much fun though!

Van Gough? Monet? Picasso?

Ahhh, I'm so in love with this painting. I am so proud too! LH painted this for his little sister's room! It will hang beautifully above her crib and be the focal point of her room! He even signed it!!! I might have helped a little, but he really did the majority of the work all by himself! So Sweet! Love it!


Finally, some new pics!

Here are my favorite little people in the whole world!!!


ONE Month Checkup!!

Miss Magpie turned one month on Oct. 1st, and we had her checkup yesterday!!! She's perfect of course, but we already knew that!
I will post a picture today - PROMISE!!!
Her stats:
Head - 15 inches (grew 1 inch)
Weight - 11 lbs
Length - 21 3/4 inches
She had to get her second Hep B shot and did fantabulously! She only cried for a minute and then passed out for a while. I am not looking forward to her 2 month visit because she gets more shots. Thank goodness I will not be taking her as I'll be back to work! Daddy duty then!
Things are great. She is still sleeping wonderfully and having stretches of 4 to 5 hours most nights. She is a great eater and has reduced her time to about 20-25 mins so that makes mommy happy. We are getting out everyday (most likely shopping)! Today we are going to the fabric store. My MIL has offered to make throw pillows for our new couch! I have been searching for some but just can't find what I like and do not want to pay what they want for them. I'm so lucky to have such a talented MIL that is willing to make stuff for me all the time!
I'll let you know what I find!


Magpie meets some new friends

My roomie from college made a visit a couple of weeks ago and we finally got to meet each other's little girls!! I'm a little slower as her sweet girl Hi-C is already 5 months old!! Now we both have one boy and one girl!!! So much fun.

We need to work on her hostessing skills! Miss Post would not approved of her sleeping through this! But look at Hi-C's cheeks...cuteness at its best!
The big brothers were feeling left out!!!

And this is another new friend she met (well, maybe since she was snoozin' through it again) that our friends adopted in July! She's going to have such great girlfriends growing up!

A little bit Hippy!
