One Month

It's so true when they say that with each child time goes by faster and faster. Abigail is one month old, but it truly feels like I just had her a couple of days ago. She is such a sweet baby and so easy going. I always thought Gracie was an easy baby, but now after having Abby I might change my mind. She goes along with everything and lets her sister treat her like a little baby doll. She is on such a good sleep schedule. I feed her before I go to bed at 10 and she wakes around 3 to eat and then again around 8...thanks Abby. She spits up quit a bit, but that's something I can handle. I'm really trying to enjoy every minute of Abigail in this newborn stage and get as much cuddles with her that I can. We love her so much! Of course someone else HAD to have her picture taken too.

Blessing and Easter

We had a fun filled weekend. Saturday morning we blessed Abigail at Nana and Pops house. We figured it was the perfect time to do it since family would be around and we were already together. Abigail was beautiful in her pretty white dress (the same one Gracie wore for her blessing) and looked like an angel. It was special having all of Ben's family there.

After the blessing we changed clothes and headed to the field for the big Easter Egg hunt. Gracie loved it! She knew exactly what to do after all of the practice we had been having at home. She was very good and didn't open her eggs until the end. We had a weenie and s'more roast after the hunt, then enjoyed being outside in the perfect 75 degree weather for the rest of the afternoon. Easter morning was a little cold, but I managed to get a picture after church. We sure enjoyed the weekend and being with family. Gracie had a blast on the Ranch with all her cousins and Abby was such a sweet easy going baby.

First Week Alone

I have officially spent one whole week by myself with no help. We were so sad for Grandma to leave last Wednesday, and I was nervous to begin a new routine with two kids. This week I managed to go to Target, Wal-Mart, Micheal's, doctors appointment, make dinners, keep up with laundry, and go to bed every night before 11, all with two little girls by my side. I must say that to my surprise, it was actually pretty easy. I think it helps having a very good baby. Gracie has been such a sweet big sister and I have loved seeing her help take care of Abigail. I know every week won't be this easy, but I'm counting my blessings for now.

Getting ready for Easter

I tried doing a little photo shoot...didn't turn out how I pictured.

Someone else wanted to try...
