Growing Girl

I can't believe our baby girl is already a month old! She is growing and changing so fast. She is super strong, holding her head up so well and pushing with her strong legs, and of course more beautiful everyday. She is getting much more expressive too; she loves to smile at mommy and daddy! Here she is doing another thing she does well...sleeping :)

One month checkup...We visited Dr. Wright again this week and Marli is doing great! She is a big girl, measuring in the 95th percentile in all categories. Here's her latest stats:
Weight: 11 lbs 6 oz
Length: 22 1/2 inches
Head: 15 1/2 inches

She got her second Hep B shot this trip...thank goodness Daddy was there for Marli and Mommy

Here's Marli waiting for trick-or-treaters...well, she's a little early but I wanted to take her picture before we had to change clothes today

or in case she ends up like this by the time they start coming!

Beautiful Weekend

Here's Marli waiting to start our trip to pick up Darcy and Brandon and go to Karly and Kyle's wedding. The weekend was wonderful: beautiful wedding, beautiful family, beautiful friends, and of course our beautiful baby girl!

At the airport with Aunt Darcy!

All the girls!

On the road again...

We made our second trip to Texas this past weekend and it feels like it takes me forever to catch up when we come home. Marli is an awesome road-tripper and such a polite guest (I think she actually sleeps better at Lollie's house and at Grammy's too!) Our last trip was quite the circuit but well worth it...we saw friends, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins many for the first time. We left Wednesday afternoon to take care of somethings that Aaron needed for his trip in a few weeks. (**Aaron won a trip to the Cowboys at the Giants in two weeks from Alltel. He and friends are flying on a private jet for a day full of perks and a great game. I'm so jealous that Marli and I can't go!**) We spent the night in Amarillo then were off to Canadian for a couple days of family, fun and football. Saturday we went back to Canyon to see the Buffs take on ACU...what a disappointment! but we did get to see some great friends and Marli enjoyed her first football experience by sleeping the entire time. We spent the rest of our trip with Grammy and were finally home sweet home on Sunday.

I didn't end up taking any pictures to document our trip as I intended, but I'll leave you with a couple recent pics so we don't disappoint. Next week we are headed back to Texas for two very important events. Marli will be meeting her Aunt Darcy for the first time when we pick her and Brandon up from the airport for Karly's wedding weekend. I promise to do better with the pictures on this trip!

Such a pretty girl! Can't believe how fast she is growing.

Marli loves to swing and I love to see that smile!

Tummy Time on my new surfboard mat!

Sleeping in my carseat...I'm already logging many hours on the road this month!

Weekend at Lollie and PaPa's

We had our first trip to Canadian this weekend for Marli's shower. We had such a fun time but we definitely missed Daddy since we had to leave him at home this time. The shower was amazing! It was so wonderful to see so many family and friends and Marli made a haul...thank you so much to all of you wonderful people for the awesome gifts! Here's a few pictures of our weekend at Lollie and Papa's. I'll try to post some more pictures from the shower soon.

Marli got to spend lots of sweet time with Lollie, Papa and Drew...

Here's mommy and Marli getting ready to head to the baby shower.

Four Generations: Great Mamaw, Lollie, Mommy and Marli :)

Here I am waiting for Aunt Cissa, Uncle Mark and Ashton to come visit. Ashton is a good big cousin. There would be lots of great pictures to show you of him kissing and loving me but mommy couldn't find her camera again until after they left!

Here I am in my wonderful's definately one of my favorite things :)

This is me after a long day of shopping with mommy and daddy. Well, really I just slept all day...I'm pretty content wherever we go.
Look at these fingers! Mommy has high hopes I will be a great pianist and it won't be long before daddy can show me how to play the guitar...

Marli is changing everyday it seems. She is such a good baby, very content. She is a rockstar at feeding, sleeping, pooping, cuddling and making mommy and daddy smile. Her first pediatrician's visit went well. She is gaining weight and everything is good! Here are a few new pics from our first days home (sorry about the sideways ones, I'm not sure how to flip it yet)

After our first long day out. We went to the doctor and lunch to celebrate mom's birthday. She did so great!

Snuggling with sweet :)

I have "pincher" toes just like my daddy.

Loving on mommy...
