It was a bit of a rough day but we had to get a picture in her 3 month old outfit!

Needless to say after an eventful night I welcomed the rain this morning! Mabry slept until about 9:00 and about 10:30 fell back asleep for about an hour and a half and Momma was right there with her!! Lazy I realize but it was so wonderful! The rest of the day was very productive, even though we started off slow! I am quite thankful for such a lazy and productive day? Oxy moron much?? But it was lovely! Now my bed is calling my name...

Then Sunday was my first Mother's day, and even though I had to work it was still a good day! We woke up early and picked up Miss Mabry. After work we went to dinner with my parents. Justin was so sweet and got me a gift card for a pedicure (always a GREAT gift), some beautiful flowers, and probably the sweetest card in the entire world. Becoming a mother has been the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, I feel as if life has finally begun. Mabry makes each day an adventure and I feel blessed to have such a great husband to share all these special moments with! It was a great time to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings in my life, especially the 14 pound ones!! It also reminded me of my awesome Mom. She has taught me what it is to be a strong woman, wife, mother, and best friend! I could not imagine life without her! She has been the best role model and I pray that I can be that great to Mabry!
chewing on those chubby fingers!

Yay for pretty friends!
We are FAMILY!!

Oh my we have been busy! Last Friday night we went to the Muller's for pizza and wine. It was such a good time, as always! We always have so much fun at thier house! Not only are they great friends, but family too! Mabry is Brooks' God daughter as well. This was the first night she got to debut one of her many new hair bows and she looked sooo cute!
On Saturday I had to work a little bit, so princess hung out with Daddy. Then we went to a couple's shower for one of Justin's really good friends. Mabry was quite the trooper! We had to leave early after a couple of wardrobe changes and attempts to take a nap, but she survived even though over stimulated!
Sunday we had to get to cleaning! It is truly amazing how hard it is to keep a clean house with a baby! I am pretty particular about the house but the last two, almost three months it hasnt been quite so important! I guess in some ways motherhood has made me relax when it comes to that sort of stuff, so if you come for a visit and theres a mess or the hardwood floors need to be cleaned, sorry! But we did get caught up which was lovely! I swear laundry is NEVER ending, but that happens when you're the Mom of the spit up queen!
We have had a very eventful week! We are very excited for today! We are about to head to Fayetteville to do bridal makeup, Mabry will sit there and be cute! Then we are going treasure hunting (meaning searching for vintage jewels for flowers!) and then we are going to the Brown's for a tea party! It is going to be so fun and so cute! There will be pictures to follow!
I was just chatting with my dearest friend Susan (yes I know you will be reading this but you are!) and also Mabry's God mother about all of our new adventures and it made me think about how Mabry truly changes everyday now! She loves just looking around and taking it all in! And this little lady loves to smile and kick those chubby little legs when she is excited! It sure melts my heart!
So now that she is asleep in my lap it's probably best I actually get some things done for our busy day and weekend! Is that her way of telling me it takes me way too long to do anything these days?
This baby girl is ready for the party!
Don't you just want to kiss on those chubby cheeks!
She loves her Momma! Just ask her and she will smile this big!
"My Dad is Stronger than Your Dad" - not what she wore to the party, but after a little spit up that's what happens! And we removed the bow, she was a little worn out at this point!
I just love this little lady! She hasn't quite mastered the camera yet, but we are working on it!
