Spring is Here!

Yesterday the sun was shining so I took advantage of the light for some pictures. Hannah is getting so funny when you get her to smile. She literally smiles with her whole face-such a ham! It makes me laugh.

A few of my favorite things

Do you ever find yourself giving advice to people who don't necessarily ask for it? Being a mom has apparently made me think I can do that often. For example, the last time I was at Babies R Us I had Hannah in her Sleepy Wrap and someone was checking us out. I decided that I would let her know that the Sleep Wrap is the best and that we use it all the time. Did she ask me about it-no, maybe she wanted to and I beat her to it. So I've decided to share a few of my favorite things with all of you. They include the BOB stroller- the best jogging stroller, a food processor, Kaboom shower cleaner-I just tried it today and it works like magic, 4oz jelly jars to can your own baby food, Pinterest, the Disney channel, the Sleepy Wrap- thanks Mikell and Heidi, online shopping-great deals, better selections, and less traffic, Pampers diapers, the Garmin Forerunner watch, Smartcare shirts-they sell them at Nordstroms and we only buy them during the men's sale but they really are WRINKLE FREE, the Cuisinart homemade ice cream maker, Chobani greek yogurt, and the Sonicare toothbrush- we got one for Christmas and it really is as great as they say.

7 Months

What can I say about that sweet face....just that she really is sweet! She has really set the bar high for siblings to follow. She loves to snuggle, smiles all the time, says mama, plays well with her toys so I can get stuff done, watches the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on my lap in the morning, thinks dancing is fun, enjoys car rides, loves baths and showers, and loves to eat. She does hate to be put down for naps. If she had it her way she would stay up all day just to make sure she wouldn't miss out on anything. She isn't crawling yet, but I'm waiting in anticipation that it will be soon. I have the video camera charged and waiting on the kitchen counter to capture the big moment. She scoots backwards and does get on all fours, but that's all for now.

Seeing Herself

How fun is it when your baby notices their reflection in the mirror?! Hannah finally realized that about herself last week. She can't get enough of looking at herself and grabbing at mirrors now.
