just some randoms...

I'm the worst mommy ever! Actually... I'm the worst mommy/blogger EVER! I used to be the queen of taking pictures, but ever since I had Mia, I've been the worst at picking up the camera. But the good news is that my sweet hubs treated me to an iPhone sooner than I was expecting. So Mia better watch out.... because I just became the queen of taking pictures again :)
Since I hardly blogged during the first month of Mia's life, here are some random pictures of my sweet baby during her first 4 weeks.

 I look hideous in this picture but I love how dainty my daughter looks :)

 Taking Mia home from the hospital.... poor baby hated the car seat. But she loves it now :)

As soon as we got home from the hospital Eric snuggled up with Mia on the couch. He'd been waiting a long time for this moment :)

Mia and I got all dressed up for Eric on New Year's day! Trust me... this was a big deal because I rarely even brushed my hair during those first 2 weeks of Mia's life, ha ha!

I am so incredibly grateful for my friends in this town... and now we all have babies together! They are going to be little besties :)

Clearly they are super thrilled with each other :)

 Mia and daddy on her first day to church. We only stayed for an hour and kept her hidden in her car seat the whole time :) We do not want her to get sick!

I am so in love with my baby! She is such a sweet girl and loves to cuddle! And our favorite is her smiles.... she loves to share them with us and it never gets old! Eric and I feel like our hearts are going to burst every time she smiles at us :) I could not feel more blessed to be Mia's mom! Now if only I could figure out how to make time slow down.... I will have a 6 week old on Thursday! Ah!!

Happy Belated Birthday!!! I love all these pictures. Mia looks so tiny! They grow soooo fast! My baby is almost six months and practically the size of a one year old. ;) You look great too. Pony tails are my favorite fashion statement.

Jennifer said...

Love the photos and you look great. I looked like a hot mess. Maybe because I wasn't a skinny pregnant girl.

Sarah said...

Ok, I seriously love how she already had a little, tiny bow in that first picture! She's definitely a princess in the making! :)

i understand how hard it is to take pictures, blog about stuff when you are just so not in that place anymore. :) they really do grow so quickly! its exciting because babies get way more fun when they can do more, but they also stop being babies. :(

great pictures!

IF, big IF, we have babies, I hope that I get to be pregnant along with someone so that we can have babies together!
