Happy 40th Birthday!

Heather and Sarah threw a surprise 40th birthday party for Teena! I don't know if she was more surprised about: the party, the wii, Shawn coming in from MN, or that she's going to be a grandmother again. Michael's parents were kind enough to watch Lily so we could attend. This was my first time away from Lily, I think I did alright. We didn't stay very long since the weather was bad, and I was missing Lily. :)

Lily's favorite way to be held.

Happy Retirement!

Michael's father (Dick) will be retiring from Walgreens on Tuesday, March 31st. They had a party for him on Friday. Linda (mom), Chris (brother), Gwen (sister-in-law), Emma (niece), Michael, Lily and I all went to surprise him. Surprised he was indeed! His team threw him and his co-worker Mike a party, and made him a nice memory book and video. Here are a few pictures. Mike and Dick had a combined 73 years of service, hence the 70's theme.

Congratulations Dad on your MANY years of service, you've earned this retirement.

Lily's first playdate

Chris, Whitney and Gavin came over on Saturday. Lily had her first playdate. They really didn't get to play much, but Gavin did seem to like Lily's bumbo, a few toys and her leg. Michael wasn't too happy about Gavin's hand on her leg. ;) We had a great time and it was nice to visit with the May's.

Lily doesn't sit up on her own as well as Gavin.

Michael's Projects

Michael has been a very busy man. In the last month he's had 5 windows and a patio door installed (3 more are still coming), he and his father put up a new cabinet in the laundry room and put in a new floor in the laundry room and powder room, he's painted the powder room, installed a new ceiling fan in our bedroom, new blinds on 2 windows (now all updated and done), and did a little trim painting. We're now thinking about putting wood floors in the kitchen instead of tile, and maybe putting in a window seat in the kitchen...we'll see. I think after that, we'll stop for a while on the inside and do A LOT of work on the yard.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's a beautiful day, so we went for a little walk. I bundled up Lily and off we went.

I'm still enjoying tummy time. I've started to make faces at mommy and daddy, they laugh a lot!

First bottle!

Michael got to feed Lily her first bottle, he was very excited!

1 month!

I can't believe that Lily is 1 month old! We went to the doctor yesterday and Lily was a great baby!!! She didn't cry until she got her shot, and then it was only for a second. She weighed in at 11lbs 6.4oz (98th percentile), 23 1/2" long (98th percentile), and her head measured at 40.5 (98th percentile). The doctor said she's big, but proportionate, she just "looks older for her age" :)

Pirctures of Lily's bathroom. The pictures were made for Lily and a shower gift.


Here are some pictures of Lily's nursery. I figured I'd post these now before it gets taken over by toys. We had the sign made for Lily, Michael and I both loved the quote. The picture above her crib was painted by my niece Heather and a shower gift for Lily.
