Millie wrote:


Dear Daddy,

I love you so much already and we have just begun!  I see how much you love me too.  Thanks for being such a kind, patient & loving daddy to me. You change my diapers and talk to me. Your silly faces and high pitched voice are my favorite at this stage!  I could not have gotten any luckier with a better daddy!  Thank you also for helping mommy when she needs a break! I feel the love from you both each and every day.  I am a lucky lucky girl.  Happy Fathers Day Daddy.



P.S.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of me and you!!!!

2 Month Milestones….


Today Millie is officially 2 months old!  I got her social security card in the mail finally. She is growing so very fast.  I cannot get over how I am with her all the time 24-7 and never actually physically see her grow!! She weighs 11lbs/12oz and her length is 22-1/4in. long!~! This fits into about the 75% for 2 month old girls!   

Her milestones thus far:

1. She is sleeping flat in her pack-n-play now, not in her bounce seat

2. She is cooing

3. She is lifting/holding her neck up 

4. She is drooling a lot now!

5. She takes an hour nap everyday

6. She absolutely loves riding in her car-seat 

7. She laughs at Stephen when he talks baby talk…it’s the cutest thing ever

8. She is very focussed on all of her surroundings/loves ceiling fans & lights/my face or stephen’s face!

9. She is kicking her legs and moving her arms a bunch

10. She sucks her thumb sometimes or her hand/I’m thinking this really isn’t a milestone…or is it???

11. She will go to sleep on her own between 9-11pm and usually sleeps til 6-8am

12. She loves riding in the grocery shopping cart

13. She enjoys taking baths & looking in the mirror!

14. My favorite, she smiles at me several times a day 🙂

Pretty sure I didn’t miss anything! Thanks for dropping by!!!! 🙂

Here she is laying on her changing pad…

The best part of being a mommy is seeing your baby smile back at you…

More smiles!!!!  🙂

This is when she gets Stephen’s full attention….with the lip!! (Such a daddy’s girl already)





Millie’s first Bluegrass Concert…


Tonight we went to a local concert in our home town.  There was a great little bluegrass band playing out on a huge open lawn.  It was a really cool Monday night activity for sure!  Some of our friends from our small group at church were there also.  Millie also got to meet her first girl-friend ever!  Little ANSLEY MAE!! (I love that name!!!!) 🙂  Here are some of the ramdom pictures I took during our night out on the town!  

Millie enjoys hanging out at concerts it seems!

Millie has more visitors!!


This past Sunday my Uncle Ken and Elaine came over to visit Miss Millie.  As Ken was holding her I think she must have displayed at least 5-6 different facial expressions.  It was the funniest thing ever!!  We enjoyed having you guys over and catching up on life!!  Here are a few pictures from our visit.
