Oh, and as of a couple of days ago, she noticed the dogs. Like, for real this time. Every time she sees them she gets a HUGE grin on her face and she follows them with her eyes as they move around the room. Melt my heart.
She's such a happy baby. I feel so blessed to be her Momma.

In the beginning I remember thinking I didn't know if I could do it. I remember being so tired and overwhelmed. But already, in just 3 short months, I feel so differently. I'm still tired of course, but it really does get easier. We're learning about each other every day. I really have learned to tell when she's crying because she just bored, or when she's hurting. And I think she's starting to know who I am. She's beginning to calm down easiest when I'm the one holding her.
Selfishly, I love this. :)
To all the other Moms out there, do you still wake up LITERALLY every day (at 6 am of course), and just fall in love all over again?
Anyways! Enough sap. :) Below you will find some fabulous 4th of July weekend pics taken by none other than the fabulous Kori Hudson. Aside from Christmas, the Fourth is my favorite holiday. We got to visit with a ton of great family, and it totally charged my batteries!

But let's end this on a happier note. Today, Elle Bell rolled over! It wasn't on purpose, and she had no idea she did it. But I was so excited! Atta girl. Can't wait to see if she does it again! :)
Goodnight from me and sweet love!

You know how everyone always likes to tell you what it's gonna be like to have a baby? They say "you'll be exhausted", "it'll take you longer to go places", "sleep when the baby sleeps." Well, as it turns out, they're right about EVERYTHING. I really thought I was gonna be able to beat it all. I thought I would surely be different. Boy was I wrong!
But just to let it be said, it's all so completely worth it.
Anyways, Elle Bell and I took our first LONG walk from my house, to the park, and back. It felt so great to get some sun, and to get the exercise! I forgot to take a picture on the walk, but I took one earlier. So here you go! Happy Saturday!

Born April 14th - weighing 8 pounds 3 ounces!
(She's about 5 weeks in this picture though)
I also cannot tell you how many times I've meant to sit down and write a million blog posts about her and the experience of becoming a Mom. I plan on keeping up much better now though!
In the meantime, I just want to say that being a mom is amazing. It's so completely surreal still. Sometimes I feel like I'm still the 6 year old little girl playing with a baby doll in my bedroom. But then she cries and I am quickly reminded that she's the real deal!
Hope you're having a great Friday night - and hope to see you guys more often from now on!

Anyways - not to ramble on - but I have a couple of Resolutions for 2011. Here we go:
1) Read the books of Exodus & Leviticus
2) Pick a church to attend regularly
3) Give birth to a sweet baby girl, and learn how to be a Mom
4) Help an animal get adopted
5) Get back in shape after baby!
Here's to a happy and healthy 2011 for everyone!
