12 weeks old today!

My sweet sweet Bella is 12 weeks old.  Today I was staring at my sweet little girl with so many emotions.  I am thankful for how healthy, sweet, happy and wonderful of a baby she is.  I am excited to see all the wonderful times we have to come in our lives. I am exhausted from taking care of a 2 year old and a 12 week old (and a 30 year old husband- LOL!) while trying to keep food on the table and my house clean, and mostly I feel so very blessed!  What a beautiful life and family I have.  

Today Grandma took Bella and Jacob and I had a mommy and Jacob day... it was so much fun! We went to Sharon woods and went paddleboating!  It was a blast. We also played on the playground and had some icecream. I sure can't wait to do it again with him!

Here is my most recent favorite picture of Bella... I caught her sleeping in her swing and I just loved her peaceful sleep... she is such a content baby!  

Next week she is going to be 3 months old!!!  I can't believe it. I will surely be posting a lot of pics after next week!!!

Visit to Highfield Gardens!

Today we decided to try out a new place... it is called Highfield Gardens in Glendale... it was really cool!  There is a huge tree house, trains tree, ponds, ect.  He had a blast.  We didn't last too long because it was really muggy, but we bought a family pass, so we will make it back sometime soon.. here are a few pics from today.

Bella's 2 month checkup

Today we had Bella's 2 month checkup.  She is doing great!  24 inches and 12lbs 13oz.  97% for both.  I just find that so funny seeing she has a 5 ft 2 inch mom.  Poor little girl had a really hard time with her shots.  She screamed and screamed and screamed and finally fell asleep.  Poor things was really in pain.  I wish we didn't have to give them shots... they are almost as hard on the parents as they are for the babies.  

Today was Kevin's last day.. it was the teacher work day, so he was done early. We went to lunch as a family to Panera, then Jacob and I went for a haircut.  Tomorrow Kevin and I are going out, my mom is watching the kids.  This will only be our second time out since Bella was born and I am so excited to have some adult time with my handsome hubby!  

Have a great weekend everyone!
