Today is the longest I have been away from Nevaeh. Going on 8 hours. I miss her so much! Yesterday I started feeling really crappy. I had a fever, chills, and my body was achy. This morning I woke up and threw up and still wasn't feeling that well. My sweet friends, Sarah and Stephanie, took Nevaeh for me for a few hours and then she has been at Nana and Papa's house since then. They are bringing her home to me shortly. Less than 3 months ago I didn't know this precious little girl. But now she is part of me and I feel naked without her. So I am looking at pictures of her and writing about her. Here is a cute pic....

Grandma and Grandpa visit!

My parents came into town this weekend to visit. It was such a blast having them here. For the first time since Peter and I have been married, they stayed WITH us! They usually always stay in a hotel, but this time they joined us! It was so fun. We definitely got to spend a lot more quality time with them! It's so fun for them to see Nevaeh smile, kick, stretch and start to show her little personality more and more! It was a blessing to have them here!

My sweet friend Chloe drew this picture of Nevaeh. She is so talented and I just absolutely love it! Thanks Chloe!

Nevy News

Nevaeh is 2 months old! Gosh I just can't believe it. Time has always flown fast but now that I'm a Momma it seems like it's going even faster. I'm enjoying every minute of this little bundle. Some of my favorite things are: laying next to her for her afternoon nap, listening to our "lullabye radio" on Pandora. I just lay inches from her sweet little face falling asleep and savor every second of it. Also the mornings that Daddy comes home from work are wonderful. He gets home around 8-8:30 and we just sit and stare at Nevs and hang out as a little family.
About a week ago, Nevy started smiling. Oh my goodness, talk about melting your heart! When she flashes that precious little smile I just about die. It's so sweet.
Nevy started sleeping through the night at 7 weeks. We started bedtime routine around 8 (depending on the night). She sleeps for 7-8 hours and then I feed her and she goes back down for 3-4 more. I am getting 8-10 hours of sleep a night, which is such a blessing!
I have been so blessed with an incredible Mom's playgroup! I absolutely love it. I have met some really awesome Mom's through it. Everyone is right around my age and it's been so fun meeting new families. Last week we went to the park and the kids ran around and played while the Mom's talked/chased the kids:) Nevy obviously wasn't running around, so I just helped with my niece and nephew! Today we went to the zoo! It's so fun, the kids just love all the animals! Not to mention it was an absolutely gorgeous day out!
Every day is an adventure with a baby, because it feels like Nevy is doing something new all the time! Yesterday we put her in her Bumbo for the first time and she sat at the dinner table with us! It was so awesome. After about 20 minutes she started getting tired and so she slumped down and rested her head on the bumbo, it was so adorable!
These pictures are pics that my dear friend Sarah Esparza took. Sarah came by to visit the other day and brought her camera. I had no idea that they would end up being some of my favorite pics on Nev! Thanks Sarah!
