We got our first (and possibly only) snow of the season and Margo didn't even see it. We kept her nice and warm inside all day but maybe next year I'll make a few snowballs for her to throw at daddy!

Not how I left her

I laid Margo on her back centered on the play mat and went and washed dishes around the corner. When I came back after a minute she was sideways on the mat - not how I left her! Now I know you are thinking, if Ashley's this excited about Margo moving a few INCHES what is she gonna do when she's crawling and walking. Don't worry I won't post too many pictures, but I just can't believe how much she changes day to day!

Two Month Milestones

Here are some things we are hoping to remember and capture from Margo's second month:

- She's holding her head up pretty well now and loves looking around - especially when held in Mommy or Daddy's arms. She's getting so strong that she was able to scoot on her back from the middle of her crib and pushed to the side!

-She loves to hold her hand in a fist but with her thumb peaking out between her index and pointer fingers.

- She lost some of her hair since birth but has a cute swirl of hair that you can see from the back.

- She's learning to suck her fist and doesn't always succeed when trying to coordinate her fist with her mouth but practice makes perfect and she's practicing!

- We are trying to remember that Margo is growing bigger... but she is still so small!

Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter Rabbit!

Growing up my mom read this Beatrix Potter book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, to me. I now have the joy of having the original copy my mom read to me and am able to read it to Margo! It was so cute how intently she listened and watched me as I read to her...

Army Life

We're looking forward to going into the Army Chaplaincy in the next year and gave Margo a taste of what she'll see Jim in every day coming home from work. What a proud daddy too!

Happy New Year!

We're ready to party!

Margo is all bundled up and ready to go outside!

The fire pit was all set up and we were ready to watch the fireworks and count down to 2009!

Jim and Stephanie - our pyromaniacs who set off a spectacular fireworks show!

We even had sparkling grape juice, champagne flutes, and sparklers to ring in the new year!

Happy New Year - sparklers at midnight!

Nana, Margo, and me celebrating!
