Oops.

So, I know that in between motherly duties I should probably be thinking about dishes, floors or TREADMILLS… but all I can think about are these.
What do they possibly put in these little candies to make them so good… and so addicting!
When we got the industrial sized bag of the sweet deliciousness, Brady said “I don’t like those eggs, they’re too… sweet” Well, if that’s the case, Mr. Miller, who has been sneaking my mini-eggs? Itty and Lou can’t reach the counter where they are. Hmmm…

Let me tell you how in love I am with my 11 week old bundle… she doesn’t judge me for eating cadbury eggs for breakfast, and doesn’t even mind that I don’t share. She’s so nice.

Now go out and get some of your own! happy easter-ish time!

Harlo’s Blessing Day

We just got our little Harlo blessed last Saturday. We blessed her at Brady’s parents house and her Papa gave her the neatest blessing! Harlo looked so precious in her little white dress, she’s just our little angel! I am so proud to be this little girl’s mommy! My beautiful life obviously would not be possible without my favorite man alive. I’m so glad I married Brady, he constantly is keeping me entertained and laughing, always making sure Harlo and I are cared for, and has me head over heels in love! He has so far exceeded my expectations of what a husband should be. Harlo is possibly even more in love with her daddy than I am! Watching them laugh and talk to eachother is the best thing in the world! I am so extremely blessed.

SpRiNg TiMe*

It has been SOO nice here lately! It’s been in the high 60’s to 70 this week. I really don’t mind winter, and this winter has been so fun with all the snow and rain (for me anyway, I love that kind of wet weather!) but I definitely get a mean case of spring fever usually around my birthday time, so I was so excited when we could hang up our coats and sweaters and head out for a fun day out in the sun! Harlo and I had our first trip to the park as a mommy-daughter couple =) It was so fun to just sit and chat with the other moms (well, my sisters..) and watch our kids play (well, their kids play, mine just sat and watched) but it was still really fun! Harlo had kind of a rough morning, but as soon as we got out in the sun she thought it was so neat!! it’s the first time she’s ever really been out and not all snuggled tight in her carseat with a blanket covering. She loved it… Maybe there’s hope that she’ll take after her dad and like nature, and not be an “indoor girl” like her mom =) Either way, I’ll be happy! We got Harlo’s spring time outfits that she’s finally fitting into, the big huge lady! There’s nothing better than the first hints of spring!

It was even nice enough for a little mani-pedi action =) Harlo very much enjoyed her first pedicure! (she was asleep for the manicure, which made it possible) I also couldn’t get a picture with both of them at the same time, so these will have to do. Aren’t they so cute?!

So it was pretty much a perfect day! It would have been nice if Daddy could have spent it with us, but hopefully the good weather will keep up through the weekend! Oh! Harlo giggles now…

You guessed it, only at her DAD.

a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day!!

So… the moment I’ve been dreading every since seeing those 2 lines on the pregnancy test has arrived…SHOTS.

Never in my life did I imagine how hard it would be to see my daughter in pain… just the sweetest, smileyest, rolliest little lady… with gigantic, horrifying needles in her legs :(

She really did extremely well, it was the longest 5 seconds of my life, but that’s all it lasted and she stopped crying as soon as it was over. Luckily Brady came and held her, I thought she would need him, but it turned out I needed the moral support more than anyone! Brady passed her to me when it was done and she had saved a little whimper for me like saying “mommy, that really hurt!” and I lost it… who knew mommyhood would be such an emotional job? Well about 10 minutes of settling ourselves down we left the doctors office and she was completely fine for the rest of the day! Poor little lady… she didn’t even see it coming…

On a lighter note.. our lady bug is growing like a weed! She weighs 10 lbs 4 oz now and is 21 1/2 inches long. She’s doing great on the charts.. we’re so grateful to have such a healthy baby!

Harlo is really the cutest thing ever… I know I’m her mom, but seriously! She has the cutest smiles in the world, which she mostly just saves up for her daddy! She’s such a fancy lady we just love having her around! I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather hang out with all day! She gets more fun all the time. We can’t wait to watch her grow and learn more and more!
