What we've been up to...

Sitting at home!! I'm going a little stir crazy. We agreed with it being flu season that we would keep Everleigh in the house for the most part until she was 8 weeks old. She's been out a few places with me during the day, but the vast majority of the time, we stay at home. I cannot wait until we can take her out to church and where ever else we want to go and get back to our lives! Almost there - she was 6 weeks old this past Monday. 1 1/2 more weeks.

We are all doing very well - especially Everleigh. The biggest question Cody and I get asked is, "How is she sleeping?" Well, she's sleeping pretty well. She just went through a little growth spurt so she's been up a little more the past few days, but before that she was consistently sleeping about 5-6 hours in a row at night. Advice for any other new moms - a schedule has been great for us. I read Baby Wise and Baby Whisperer (same schedule in both books) and it has really helped us to get organized and to have some sort of normalcy where we can know what to expect out of our days.

Here are a few pictures of things Everleigh loves to do.

She loves tummy time...

and kisses from Mommy!

She loves watching Cody and me and studying our faces.

Being read to is one of her favorite things

She loves looking out the window - at the fence.

Looking at Daddy!!

oh she is so precious! I can't wait to meet her! So many of her expressions remind me of Landry when he was that age- i loved it when he opend his mouth like a little bird! I miss those days but it just keeps getting better(if you can imagine that-which i'm sure you can!)
