A Daddy & his Girl

this just about stops my heart!  it's like the scene in The Grinch when his heart grows exponentially when he sees all the whoos in whooville singing.  Watching David with M just about makes my heart jump out of my chest.  So in love with him.  So in love with my little girl.  So in love with motherhood.

Magnolia had a dr's appointment Monday.  Me & her both cried our eyes out when she got her shots.  She is doing wonderfully -- 95th percentile in weight! (13lbs 13oz at 11weeks old!).  She's got great neck control.  Smiles all the time.  She got the giggle for about 5 minutes straight about 2 weeks ago... but as hard as we try, we can't get her to do it again.  

Right now she is still sleeping in the bassinet in our bedroom, but doc said because she is so big that she would probably benefit from and enjoy a thicker mattress.  The plan is to move her to her crib/room when we get back from California at the end of the month... but this mom is gonna miss having her so close at night!

Daddy bathes her every night around 10:30pm and she LOVES it!!  So fun to watch her splish and splash.  Right after bath she eats and then... wait for it... sleeps for 7 - 8.25 hours!  She's been sleeping like this for the past few weeks!!

Basically, I'm pretty spoiled!  I've already totally forgotten all my pregnancy woes -- somebody remind me quick before Magnolia ends up with a little brother or sister before she is 1!  :)



  1. Awww I totally know how you feel. Those daddy daughter pictures are the sweetest things ever. My baby was very similar. She was a fatty and slept a lot. It made life as a new time mom wonderful. Glad to see you enjoying it too!

  3. ummm. oh my gosh. LOVE. so beautiful.

  4. These pictures just make me want to say, "oooohh" I love seeing a father with his little girl. There's nothing sweeter.

  6. 1. Daddy/baby shots are the absolute sweetest!
    2. Watching your baby in any kind of pain/shock is the worst. Absolute worst.
    3. Amazing how quickly you forget the bad stuff about pregnancy and childbirth. And being up all night with a newborn...

  7. Oh my gosh, so sweet!

    P.S. I'm hosting a scarf swap on my blog and would love for you to join in!

  8. Magnolia is a doll! :) Love the daddy/daughter moments!! So sweet. Our lil guy sleeps so well, too, I'm bugging hubs for #2 soon!!

  9. How sweet! You are so blessed to have such a wonderful little sleeper. A lot of people will tell you to enjoy her a long time, but God has the plan for any siblings and though I don't doubt you're teasing, he'll surprise you with that desire out of nowhere! All of those surprise babies out there are proof of that!

  10. Those pics are breath taking!!!! Wow. Such gorgeous light for lovely subjects!!!! hehehehe....giggles are truly the best.

  11. Those pictures are just precious, and I love hearing your thoughts on motherhood. I can't wait to be a mom!

  12. Aw, so glad to hear how great your little cutie pie is doing!!! Those are some sweet pictures! I don't have a man or baby but pictures like that make me want one of each! ;p

  13. Darling! There is nothing quite like the bond of father and daughter...she is so, so lucky to have you both!
