Tummy Time!

Photobucket

Hooray for finally loving tummy time! Agnes used to just dig her face into the ground and cry... Now she is getting strong enough to hold herself up. Maybe we can finally work on rolling over!

I can't believe she is already four months old!

Agnes has been hanging out in her fleece bear suit a lot lately... Evan and I have found a new love for geo caching... So we have been trekking through cemeteries and other spooky places for Halloween treasure...

Grammy

This post should have been here months ago, but I was busy with a newborn and stuff.

This is Evan's Grammy, Agnes. She is obviously the inspiration for the name of our little Agnes. She came out to meet our Agnes when she was a week old, and she traveled here all the way from Wisconsin.

I met Grammy over a year ago when Evan and I went to Wisconsin last summer. I just fell in love with her. She is so sweet, so loving, so funny, and seems much younger than her age. She plays solitaire every night in bed on her ipad...

When we left Wisconsin I told Evan that we had to name our future daughter Agnes. He loved the name.

When I found out I was pregnant with a girl, we called Grammy on skype and told her we decided on a name for our baby and wanted to tell her what it was... jokingly she said, "anything but Agnes!" and we laughed and laughed when we told her it was!

It was so beautiful when our little Agnes met Grammy. We all felt a little closer to Grammpy, who had just passed away earlier this year.

Grammy made our Agnes that beautiful cream blanket and gave her this locket... it has grammy Agnes' initials on one side and baby Agnes' on the other...



Anyway, sorry this post is so late, but it had to be posted!

We're still here!

I am sure you were all DYING to see what we've been up to right?

Well, it hasn't been anything overly exciting... Just my normal day to day stuff, and I have just been too busy to blog.

Agnes LOVES:

to eat her fists
to kick and splash in the tub
to talk and talk and talk all day
to giggle and smile every time I look at her
to be swaddled up tight
to try to sing to music
to watch TV (bad mother, I know)
to look at herself in the mirror
to swing

I LOVE her
