Well, it has been forever. Life with a baby is taking a bit more of my time than I thought it would! But it is wonderful. This past weekend Avalyn was dedicated at church, pictures to come.
Here is a picture I thought you might enjoy in the meantime!
At her 2 month checkup she weight 10 pounds, 9 ounces and was 22 inches long. She had gained almost 4 pounds since birth! WOW!
She is such a sweet baby and we are so blessed to have her. I still cannot believe God gave us this child. The past 2 nights she has slept from 8:00 PM-6:15 AM! She is starting to recognize us more and gives us lots of smiles!

1 Month

Avalyn was 1 month old on Tuesday of this week. Here are a few pictures. She has grown quite a bit and we are noticing some of her clothes are getting a bit too short!
We are finally feeling like this is normal and are all adjusting quite well. She is sleeping pretty well at nights and some nights will let us sleep about 5 hours at a time! She is such a mellow and sweet baby. She is also becoming quite cuddly and when she is awake we are getting a lot of smiles out of her!
God is good!

what to do on maternity leave

While both Josh and I are off this month we had some projects that we both wanted to work on. The first one was completed by Josh and my dad and that was building a roof over our back patio. It is really nice to have a shady spot in our backyard now!
Second major project was some painting that Josh has been wanting to complete. The colors we have used are Gobi Desert by Behr and Asparagus by Behr. There is also a reddish-orange color but we made it based on another color so it doesn't have a name.
Here are some photos of what we have done with the paint!

Asparagus and the reddish-orange color.

Gobi Desert starts in the dining room and goes all the way through to the living room.
