Merry Christmas!!

Christmas 2008...if you would have told me a year ago that I'd be celebrating Christmas this year with my very own baby, I'd have told you to keep dreaming. I am still amazed every day that she is mine and I'm so proud of her and proud to be her mommy.

Merry Christmas!

AnnaJo had her 2 month appt...shots, ouch!

My baby girl is growing so big! Her 2 month appt was last week and she is already 13 lbs / 23 inches long! She had her first round of shots and did so good! I was very proud of her, although I think I was far more anxious and nervous than she was. She screamed louder than I have ever heard her scream before - it was a little rough. Nana went along too for the visit and she had to cover her ears. Here's a few of her latest pics...

This is a headband that my aunt Kaye bought for her. Isn't she adorable!?
9 weeks old here....happy girl!
And this is proof that she does kind of look like me. I was 3 months old in this picture! Can you see the resemblance between my Mom and I too? :-)

Where has the time gone??

It cannot already be December, can it? It seems like yesterday that I was packing my bags to head to the hospital to have my beautiful baby girl. Time has flown by! She is already 10 1/2 weeks old! She is getting so big too. Such a big girl and super strong! She is always trying to sit up.

I'm back at work now - part time for December and then full time in January. It was very hard to go back too...it's so hard to leave her. She's in good hands though. Her Nana, Grammie and Daddy all watch her one day per week. That leaves me with the two other days and I cherish them both! And then weekends too, of course! With the holidays quickly approaching, I can't claim all the weekends though! Speaking of holidays...I have pictures from Thanksgiving posted on her Shutterfly picture page (www.annajohill.shutterfly.com). She was such a cutie...wore her first dress that day!

She had another first on Monday night (12/8) - she laughed really hard for the first time. she was laughing at Jersey. Jersey was supposed to be talking dirty, but she sneezed instead. AnnaJo thought it was hilarious and actually belly laughed. It was too cute!

Hope all is well with everyone!
