Wonderful Christmas!

To say we had a wonderful Christmas is a total understatement! Caroline was literally showered with toys, clothes, and handmade blankets! :) Judd and I definitely got lots of wonderful gifts, too! Judd even got me my comforter that I mentioned on here a while back! SO exciting. Judd's parents gave us a note that said "We owe you one king size bed whenever you're ready for it." YAAAAAAAAY! Mom & Dad gave Judd is coffee maker and he has made coffee every single day since then. I also got boots that are TO DIE FOR! I wanted them so badly but they were too expensive. Mom & Dad went back and got them for me! I was SO excited to open them!

It was such a fun time and we enjoyed our time with our families. Cassie & Aaron are going to see Brad Paisley with us in February! Mrs. Candy is coming and keeping all FOUR grandbabies! Should be interesting! To all of our family - thank you all SO much for being so generous! We love you all!

Caroline is just days away from being 4 months old! We're going to try rice/oatmeal cereal this week so we'll see how that goes.

In the meantime, here's the link to our "Holidays 2009" (<---- click those words, Deda!) that contains all the Christmas pictures! There were just too many great ones and not enough time to upload them all!

Just to make you want to see them - here's a sneak peek! :)

We've had such a whirlwind last 2 weeks! Talk about traveling! We visited Cassie & Aaron and all the kids week before last and had so much fun! We played Digital Monopoly (very fun, by the way! Definitely better than the old monopoly) and Aaron whooped us all. We also sat around and let Aaron and Austin play their guitars and we tried to remember words to songs we hadn't heard in years! We had a lot of fun just visiting and being with them all. We also need to make special mention of Davis - who offered up her full size swing to Caroline who was SO unhappy with her travel swing. Ha! Caroline literally wanted nothing to do with her travel swing. Lesson learned. The big swing comes along! Ha!

Last week we visited Audra, Andrew, and Drew! We played more monopoly, cards, and the wii! While we were there Judd and I went out for our anniversary. He took me to see the Wizard of Oz at the Orpheum!! He planned the whole thing himself! I was so proud! We ate at The Butcher Shop (YUM steak!) before the show and had such a good time. Thank you Audra for keeping Caroline for us! When we got home, Caroline suddenly rolled over all by herself! We were so surprised! Aunt Audra taught her something while we were gone, apparently! She's been doing it over and over ever since we left! We had so much fun visiting with them. We also drove through Starry Nights in Memphis! It was so cool! I even remembered some of it from when I was little.

Caroline has decided her swing is NOT where she wants to be right now so I must be going!

She rolled over!

Aw, 2nd post for today! :) Caroline has officially learned to roll over from tummy to back. She did it on our anniversary for the first time and did it again 5 more times tonight! I think she has it mastered! I'll have to find the camera so I can video it and post it! I'm one proud mommy!


Christmas Time Pictures!

So sorry that I don't have time to type a post! Caroline has been kinda sickly with a nasty cold this week and she's not sleeping as well as usual. She's needing me now! I'll tell you about our wonderful last two weeks, soon!

3 Months Old!!

Can you believe it's been 3 months since we had Caroline? It's been the hardest, best 3 months of my life! We are really looking forward to this FINALLY being Judd's last week of work. Hopefully tomorrow will be his last day! (Yes, I've been saying that for a long time, but I think it's finally true.)

Caroline is definitely getting her own personality. Can we say DRAMA QUEEN?! If you put her down when she wants to be held, she's upset before your arms come out from under her! When she's nursing and I begin to switch sides, she screams because her meal has been taken away for two whole seconds! She's getting bigger every day. I'm pretty sure she's over 10lbs now...although I'm not positive. She sure feels like it! It seems like she's grown SO much in the last week! Growth spurt? It could account for how fussy she's been! Ha!

She loves to sit and coo and laugh. She has also shown interest in her first toy! It's a bear that sings "twinkle twinkle" and has little red lights that blink on her cheeks. Caroline just stares at it and actually attempted to swat at it once or twice! She smiled at the bear a few times, too! She also stares at high contrast patterns a lot! She smiles when you laugh at her - and sometimes you can make coughing noises and she'll laugh. She also thinks it's hilarious when she sneezes! She's getting way better at holding her head up on her own but still hates tummy time. Honestly, she hates being out of anyone's arms. Ha! She also sleeps through the night now!! She's been doing it for a few weeks now - and I'm SO thankful! :) Sometimes, she'll be smiling at you when you're not looking and she wants you to pay attention to her. Y'all, she's precious! Check out our 3 month pictures!

She's getting so big!

Blue eyes!!

"What is this stupid thing on my head?!"
I never knew I could love someone so much! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and finally got to meet baby Davis. She's so cute! I loved holding and cuddling her! We're planning L-O-T-S of traveling in December and I'm pumped about it! I probably won't be blogging much (what else is new, right?) since we'll be gone but I'll do my best!
