Loving Margo

We are in love with little Miss Margo.

The first 4 weeks have flown by and it's hard now to imagine life without her. She has already brought us so much joy.

Her big sisters cannot get enough of her. They are always wanting to hold her and kiss that sweet little head.

The girls are always telling us how much they love her.

David has another Daddy's girl. Look at that head control!

I love carrying her around in the Baby Bjorn......nice and snuggly.

Get used to this, Margo. Your mama is a shutterbug and can never have too many pictures of her girls.

Future blogger?

Yesterday afternoon, Margo and I spent a little time blog-hopping and surfing the net on the laptop. This is what David saw when he came home from work. I'm sure blogging will be a thing of the past when she's a mom, but I can show her how she went blogging as a wee one.

I finally got around to snapping some pictures for her birth announcement.


I couldn't resist taking a picture of these sweet little piggy toes.


She's changed so much already.


Indeed, a little princess!

This Week....

Madeline has mastered jumping off the diving board. She is so proud of herself and we're proud of her too. She's been swimming like a fish for a long time now, but it has taken her a while to build up her confidence for this. Yay, Madeline!

Lydia shows in these two pictures her true personality and that even at the pool, you can be a fashionista! She's sporting a deflated ball on her head!
And not one, but two swim rings.


Margo is deep in thought in this picture. I'm so proud of her because she slept for 6 hours straight last night!!!!

One night earlier this week, Lydia got out of bed and and handed me this note that Madeline had written for her. Lydia had a boo-boo on her thumb. I guess Madeline didn't want her to get in trouble for getting out of bed, so she sent a note( with a drawing of a hand and a band-aid). How sweet.

David and I have been tyring to bottle up all these sweet newborn moments with Margo. We know they will not last long.


Madeline gets in some good summer reading..........Junie B. Jones, her favorite!!

Happy Friday!!

Two weeks, already???

Well, I'm finally getting a chance to post some more pictures. It's hard to believe that Margo is two weeks old. She is changing every day and starting to look around more and is noticing all her surroundings. Things are going well. We've been on the go ever since we came home.....mostly doctor's appointments. She came home with a bili blanket, so we were going back and forth getting blood drawn. Just last week, she had a skin tag removed from her left ear, so that took a couple of doctor's visits. She has already been to several restaurants.....her 1st being the Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh on the 4th of July. We took her to church yesterday for the first time.
This picture was taken today when we got back from the doctor. She had her 2 week check up and is now 9lbs., 1.5 oz. She had dropped to 8lbs. 8oz. when we left the hospital.

She loves to be up on your shoulder and gets her little head turning from side to side.

Snoozing on Daddy's chest.



Only 5 days old in this picture and she made her debut in our neighborhood 4th of July parade.


Family photo at Grandma's.


She is so attentive when Madeline holds her. I think she looks like Madeline did as a baby.

Sweet sleeping baby. She was still a little jaundiced in this picture.

Lydia is a proud big sister and enjoys holding her too.


I'm starting to get more pictures with her eyes open.


Madeline loves to hold her like this.


The girls put on a fashion show for Margo the other day. I have a feeling that Margo will be entertained lots and lots from her big sisters.
