She has arrived!

Well, I mentioned that I got to go visit my friend Jill at the hospital on Sunday...
While I was there I snapped a couple of photos of their new addition. She is so adorable! I can't believe that Abbey was once as small as Ellery! It is so amazing how quickly they grow!
Isn't she adorable? She is just perfect!

Jill looked fantastic! You would never had guessed she just had a baby!
I love my friend!
Ahhh...thank God for wonderful girlfriends!

Even Aaron braved holding little Ellery...

He did a great job holding her while I took some shots...
...don't you just love all the faces that newborns make?
She must have caught a whiff of something on that last shot!!! Ha ha!

Aaron! What did you do!?!?!

Just kiddin'....I love you babe! He he =)

Oh, and stay tuned...we will definitely have a little 'newborn' shoot of this doll!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter yesterday.
We sure did! We got to see family and friends at church...and then my good friend Jill's new baby! (Pictures to come!)

After all of that...we went home to spend some quality time with just the three of us. =)

...which, of course, included a photoshoot of Abbey in her new Easter Hat.

Thank you Elkus Family, for thinking of Abbey when seeing this hat! I absolutely love it!
She's my little lamb... ;)

You can check out some more of Abbey's pictures on her site! Thanks for taking a look!

Today...I remember.

As a close friend of mine said a few weeks ago...'I'm all about nostalgia today.'

One year ago, today...I was at Ethan Allen shopping for couches with my husband, when I started to get my first real contractions. I decided that it was probably NOT a good idea to 'try any more of them out' in case my water decided to break!
Later that evening at 8:16, Aaron and I welcomed into our little family a baby girl who would, 48 hours later, go by the name of Abbey Grace.

This year has been sooooo incredibly amazing!

Though we've had to:
1) live on less sleep than we even got in college,
2) change yucky diapers...and sometimes clothing, and bedding, etc.,
3) taste questionable baby food for the sake of not burning Abbey's little mouth,
4) listen to loads of crying...A LOT
5) eliminate late night fun with friends...mostly because we're exhausted!

We are now greeted with smiles,
and receive hugs and kisses from this little One Year Old girl...

How could life get any sweeter?

Who would have thought that God would trust us with something so precious??
We are so blessed.

I love you so much, my Abbey!
Happy Birthday!!!
