Quick Update

Hello all! Well if you look to the right and see how many posts I had in August compared to September I think you could quickly see I haven't had the time I did when I was on maternity leave! Ok so now I'll bring you guys up to speed!

The week after Labor I worked three 1/2 days, just to ease back into it! Leaving Adelyn those first few days was a piece of cake because my Mom came up to our house to watch her. The next week is another story....

That weekend our wonderful friends, Mark & Jenna got married. Kyle & I both had the honor to stand up with them on their big day. It was a perfect weekend!!

Aunt Stef came over from Omaha to watch Adelyn for us on Saturday while we were busy with the wedding festivities. Thanks Aunt Stef!! Speaking of my sister Stef, her and Geoff found out their having a baby GIRL!!!! We are so excited for them. And I know her and Adelyn are going to be best buds growing up!!

The week following Mark & Jenna's wedding was my first full week back to work. Leaving Adelyn at daycare was one of the hardest things I've had to do. Not that we aren't happy with the daycare, we've had a great experience so far, but I just hate being away from her 10+ hours/day. Being back at work full time has been a definite adjustment. I feel like the days and weeks are just flying by and Adelyn is growing by the minute. I just want it all to slow down!!

I've learned that things I used to think were important, such as dusting, vacumming, etc, aren't so much anymore. I'd rather spend my time with my sweet baby girl in the evenings after work! I mean who wouldn't want to spend their time with this sweet girl! Doesn't she look SO big in this picture?!?!

(this picture is from almost 3 weeks ago and I feel like she's already changed in that short amount of time!)

Ok, back to the update! This cute little boy ,AKA our nephew Hayden, turned 1 on September 12th! Hard to believe he's already a year old!!
We dedicated Adelyn on September 18th! The majority of both of our families got to be there for the special day!

On the 21st of September Adelyn turned 3 months old! These past 3 months have been amazing, but also they have flown by!!

We've also been keeping busy with trips to Iowa City for some Hawkeye football and still have quite a few more games this fall! I'm excited for this weekend though, we have no plans and just hope to enjoy a nice fall weekend at home with our family!

I will do more detailed posts on all these happenings, but I wanted to at least let everyone know that I'm still alive & kickin', just getting adjusted to being a working Mom! :)

Adelyn’s Newborn Pictures

June 21st, 2011 is a day we will never forget. That is the day we were blessed with you, our baby girl. You came into our lives and blessed us beyond belief. You have turned us into to parents and made us fall in love in a whole new way. _JD09164_edited-2

To think that God gave you to us to love and raise makes us so happy. We feel so grateful to be your Mommy & Daddy. You have made us a family of three and for right now that feels just right. _JD09176_edited-2

Adelyn, I loved you when you were growing in my tummy for 9 months, but I had no idea how much more I could love you once you made your arrival. I have dreamed about having a daughter for years and years. Adelyn you are a dream come true and I love you more than words can describe._JD09210_edited-2

You have turned the man I love in your Daddy. He is completely smitten over you. Watching you and Daddy together melts my heart. And because of you, Adelyn, Daddy & I have a whole new love for each other. _JD09216_edited-2

Not only do your Daddy & I love you to pieces, there are many other people in your life that treasure you as well. You  have Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, cousins (one is on the way!), and friends who love you so much. You are a blessed little girl._JD09240_edited-2

When you were growing in my tummy Daddy & I prayed all the time that you would be a healthy, happy baby. We thank God everyday that he listened to our prayers and blessed us with a just that. You are a healthy growing little girl with a smile that would melt anyone’s heart. _JD09394_edited-3

Over these past 2+months we have loved seeing you grow and change. You have already given us so much love and laughter and pure joy. Hearing your coo’s & little noises will turn any frown into a smile!_JD09399

Waking up every morning and seeing your sweet smiling face is just how Daddy & I like to start the day. You are always extra happy in the mornings, so much so that you will even take a little break from eating to flash Momma a smile! _JD09301_edited-2

Over these past 10+ weeks I have been so blessed to spend every single day with you. I have loved every minute of being home with you. Soon you will be going to daycare while Daddy & I are at work. I am not excited about, no one will take care and love you like I do. But I know you will be in good hands and you will make friends!  _JD09415_edited-2

The first time I felt these little feet in my tummy it brought tears to my eyes, but now we are so blessed to be able to see, hold, and kiss these little feet everyday! One day these tiny toes & feet will be running all around, but for today Daddy & I will enjoy you at this stage._JD09437_edited-2

I love to dress you up in all things girly, complete with ruffles, ribbons, and bows! Some say this is drive you to be a tomboy and if that is the case I will love you just the same! You don’t seem to mind bows and flowers in your hair one bit, so for now I will continue with all the frills! Surprisingly, Daddy doesn’t seem to mind all these girly things, I think its because you have him wrapped around your little finger!_JD09470

Adelyn you have made your Daddy and me a family of three. We love you more than words can describe and feel completely blessed that God has entrusted us with your precious life. _JD09494

Love, Mommy <3
