We're 4 months old!!

This has been quite the week for Miss Mabry! She is offically 4 months old, hard to believe right?! We have been spending lots of time at LaLa's pool soaking up the sunshine. I love summer for some many reasons but I especially love the LONG days! We can take walks when it actually cools off! I swear we jumped right into summer, there was no easing in the heat this year! I love summer "hair" that just dried and not perfect look to go along with a little bronzer and lip gloss! My most favorite of course is being able to have fun in the sun with my baby girl! She loves to just get up and go, and trust me we are busy!
This was also Justin's first Father's day! I feel as if I don't mention him enough and I know that I do not give him enough credit! Justin is absolutely wonderful with Mabry, and it is so cute to see them play now that she is really developing a little personality. He really loves her and it shows in every ounce of him! It's crazy how a little bitty baby girl can have such a strong man wrapped her teeny finger! It truly melts my heart! I had a few of his favorite pictures blown up in different sizes and put in black frames, along with a cardinals hat, and of course those mushy and all too silly cards! I think he loved it! J even surprised me on his first Father's day, I came home and he had CLEANED the house, I'm talking even mopped! It was such a lovely surprise! Yay for Dad's day! We then went to Olive Garden for dinner and so of course I had to take a couple of pictures while we were waiting on our table! After being almost uncomfortably full we came home and just hung out which was so nice!

So today is catch up day! I worked ALL weekend it feels like so that is one reason I'm beginning to not mind Mondays so much, I can catch up on life!!

We had to wear the "3 months old" outfit one more time!

Summer Lovin'

Big surprise I've been slacking on my blogging. But I do have cute pictures so that makes up for it right? :) We have been busy homeowners lately, we no longer live in a PINK house! It's so nice to see a neutral color! We (meaning Justin) have some work to do such as finishing the trim and the shutters but progress has been made and I am just thrilled!! In the evenings Mabry will sit outside in her bumbo and watch Daddy work. That sweet girl loves to be outside! I also painted some furniture red and I love it! So little miss got her fill of the play pin while I tried to be creatively domesticated. We love projects around here!
Last Friday my good friend Susan came in from Kansas City and we had a lovely time just catching up on life and middle sister wine! I love when she comes to visit. She is one of those friends that you can go months without seeing each other but when you do we can easily pick up where we left off. But I have been lucky enough to see her quite often lately, I'm thinking it may have more to do with Mabry than just me! I can't say that I blame her! She laughed at me becuase she got to the house around 10:00 pm and Mabry was still bright eyed and in a bow of course! I say I'm teaching her to be well prepared for any occassion! Most of all I feel blessed to have such a great friend to be there for me and my baby girl!

Mabry stayed with a babysitter, someone besides a grandparent, for the very first time! Mollie and Mabry had a good time hanging out together while mom and dad went to a wedding in Fayetteville! Mollie is so great with her! So I feel that we have reached another accomplishment..

She's growing up way too fast!!

I don't need a prince I've got DADDY!

Love the cupcake bow!

Love Bug just hanging out with Mommy!

So in an earlier post I mentioned a cardinals outfit, well here is another version of it!

Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks?

We love LaLa's pool and pink bikinis!

Bows from our head to our toes!

This is what one full happy baby girl looks like! She loves "big girl" food! But then again so do I!
I'm not going to lie I didn't get many pictures from our super laid back weekend but this is her laughing at Nana and Pop's house! Once again we are just in a diaper!

Yesterday was another fun bow party!! It was such a good time with yummy pizza and lots of bows and flowers! I must admit I REALLY want to go to the beach now!! Maybe I should do the shred first! love those girls..

Here are just a few pretties!

An old school American girl doll "grin pin"..This was mine from probably 3rd grade! Does that make it vintage?

Even Miss Sadie has a pretty to wear on her cute dresses!
