happy sunday.

just when i think we have the best sleep habits possible with a newborn, my sweet daughter decides to change it up. last night we woke up every 2 hours. for the first time in her life she woke up crying immediately and could not be consoled for quite some time. my sweet husband was an amazing daddy and comforted her because i honestly couldnt take it. i seriously hope this is a growth spurt.
then this morning we woke up a little on the early side ( i suppose i didnt see the point in trying to sleep anymore) which was nice becuase we were not in a rush to get ready for church. it was also our day to lead the greeting team, so we had to get there extra early. we all rode together in my bug, which really brought joy to my heart because as silly as it sounds, i love that car and i love that my entire family was in it together for the first time today. maggie turned 12 weeks old this morning, which is unbelievable, and i have been inspired by so many other blogs to write monthly updates on our little angel, so in the next week i will write 3. i am excited to be able to read this 10 months from now and remember what it was like! church was awesome. there were SO many people there. Jesus has been so good to our church. after church we went to my parents house for a superbowl party. i think i looked at the tv a total of 4 times, one of which was to watch the black eyed peas do a terrible performance, along with usher who was wearing the ugliest pants in the world. it was just really nice to see my family and let someone else hold our baby. i would say that this weekend turned out to be 1,000 times better than i thought. (thank you, Jesus! i really needed that!)

 here are some fun photos from today. 
12 weeks old.

  1. happy 12 weeks to Maggie!!! That was a huge growth spurt time for Rachel. I just checked her baby book to make sure and yes, I talked for 3 pages about how life was so hectic with her not sleeping and needing to be held and cuddled and nursed 24/7 - I mentioned feeling like a cow with utters ;-)

    I just saw your facebook profile and noticed she slept a whopping 6 1/2 last night!!! that's amazing. I don't think most 12 week old babies do more than 3 or 4 so consider that a huge blessing.


please say hello & leave your sweet thoughts!
