Everyone keeps asking me what I think about being a mom, and that's a really hard question to answer. It's wonderful, fulfilling, tiring, stressful, rewarding, blissful, and emotional. These are all words that describe the various moments that have occurred in the last 4 weeks with Hannah. Just when you think you have her figured out, she throws you a curve ball and you have to start all over again. I thought babies this young didn't have a personality of their own. I thought parents were able to shape the personality you wanted your kids to have if you did it early on in their lives. Wow, was I wrong!! Hannah is a really good baby, even with her hard to figure out moments. Every night when I'm up feeding her, and can barely keep my eyes opened, I remember to cherish even those moments. It won't be long before she won't want to be held or snuggle in your arms, and right now those are the moments that melt my heart.

Happy Belated

It's official...I'm the BIG 30! My actual birthday was on the 10th, but Blake and I really celebrated it last night by going to the Josh Groban concert. It was AMAZING!! I'm so glad we were able to see him perform in Seattle. I must say I was a little hesitant to go and leave Hannah behind with my mom. Not that I didn't think my mom could handle babysitting, but it was hard for me to leave her for that long. She did great with grandma, and grandma loved spending time with her. If anyone ever has a chance to see Josh Groban live, I must insist that you do. It is so worth the money!

Hannah hangin' with Daddy

Hannah has "daddy time" at night when I give her a bath and then read her a story in her rocker; it's sweet. Here are a some photos from a few evenings ago. She's got quite the grip.
