Happy New Year!

Happy New Year.  Here is Magnolia getting ready for her first new years!  Yes, those are leg warmers that she is wearing!  Her new years resolutions are: crawling, walking, talking and getting some teeth!

Merry Christmas





Magnolia had a wonderful first Christmas.  She woke up at 7:30 in her Christmas pajamas and was ready for a day of fun!  After her Christmas breakfast she got to see what santa brought her.  Magnolia and Ziggy had lots of fun playing with their stockings.  Both girls were very good this year and santa knew it!  We then started opening gifts.  Needless to say, we got a little carried away shopping for Magnolia.  It is so much fun to buy her stuff!  She loved eating the paper, bows and ribbons!  She was so into the boxes, toys and wrapping that she sat on the couch for over an hour just taking it all in.  She was so cute and it was so great to see her on her first Christmas.  The rest of the day was spent playing with all the new toys and having fun.  We all got new pajamas just for the day so we spent most of our time in our pj's and relaxing.

Santa Baby

Magnolia had a very exciting half birthday. She got to go sit on Santa's lap for the very first time.  She loved it and told him that all she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth!

6 Months Old

Magnolia is 6 months old today!  It is so funny to think about the time... In one hand it feels like she has always been here and been apart of us, but on the other it seems like just yesterday that she was born!  I cant believe all the changes in this little girl in just a few short months.  She can now sit up, babble, smile, laugh, throw toys and so much more.  I cant imagine any other six months being this amazing and filled with this many exciting changes.  Happy half birthday Magnolia Claire!

Cold day fun


Look at Magnolia sitting up all by herself!  The sisters are really starting to interact more lately which has been fun to watch.  We have come to realize that Ziggy is actually going into Magnolia's room and waking her up on the mornings that David does not work!  As most of you know, Zig is so happy when she gets fed.... so since we sleep in a bit on David's days off she gets antsy and wants her food.  She now goes and wakes up Magnolia because she has somehow figured out that when Magnolia makes noises we will get up!  
The second picture is of Magnolia wearing my winter hat.  She has a huge head and David realized the other day that it is almost the same size as mine!  He then proceeded to put my hat on her and it actually fit!  Her head doesn't fill up the hat, but the width of it was perfect!  Most moms wait years to share things with their daughters... I only had to wait 6 months!

Snowy day


We had snow on the ground when we woke up this morning!!  Magnolia  looked out the window for a long time looking at all that white stuff!  We also are finally getting to use the coat that David bought her.  As you can see she stayed so nice and warm that it put her right to sleep!  Happy Winter!

New favorite picture

I just want to take a minute to say that this little girl is the cutest thing around.  She has got the best smile and is really starting to be a funny little thing.  I cant even begin to describe how happy she makes me.  There are so many times during the day that she gives me that smile and melts my heart.  She has been so silly lately and is so much fun.  It is hard to tell by the picture, but she is actually sitting up all on her own!

Magnolia got a new high chair last week.  She thinks she is pretty hot stuff sitting in it and eating like a big girl!  It is so much easier to feed her in this... we have been putting her in her bouncy chair, but she is to big for it so we had to prop it up just a bit!

A Couple of Magnolia's Holiday Pictures

Playin' Around




Magnolia has been very busy playing on her play mat lately.  We are trying to encourage her to roll over from her back to her tummy but have not had much luck.  She prefers just to cry and have us do the work for her!  She has really gotten into playing with her mirror the past few days. She also loves to sing along to Christmas carols in the car!
