happy thanksgiving!

Pretty sure it goes without saying, but having this week off of work to just spend time with my family has been the best ever. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to spend an entire week with Patrick and Teagan and getting to spend quality time visiting both of our families. We have so much to be thankful for and our continuing prayer has been that we not take any of it for granted.

Teagan had a lot of firsts over the are some pictures that sum up those firsts and our Thanksgiving break.


first night sleeping without being swaddled...sweet girl was a champ and acted like there was no difference. She also found her thumb, and we now officially have a thumb sucker. 

first time having veggies...sweet potatoes! 

this girl loves if you couldn't already tell by the double chin, bubbly cheeks, and rolls. :) 

first time riding in the stroller like a big girl 

first time in the jumpy seat

first pigtails. oh my. 

first ride on a doggy?! 

first time eating dinner at the table with us...she talked the entire time.

happy 4 months!

Sweet T, you have given us 4 of the best months. You have brought us so many more smiles and laughs, and just when we think you can't get any sweeter or more do. We love you so much and are enjoying your fun little personality. You are smiling a ton...although when the camera comes out, you seem to know we want you to smile, and you like to give a real stoic look instead. :) You are happy the majority of the time and give laughs and squeals out of sheer delight. We love it. You like to talk to the girl in the mirror that I'm not sure you've realized yet is yourself. You're still in size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes, but your diapers are getting a little snug and you are close to busting out of your footed pjs with your tall self again. You love listening to your dad play his guitar or read you stories. You just sit and stare at him in amazement. Tummy time is getting a little better, but after about 5 minutes you like to express your disapproval. You've rolled over twice, but it's been when we've had a small pillow under you, so gravity was on your side...and if you've rolled over with Mrs. Stacey, she hasn't told us because that might make your mom quit her job. :) You can hold your bottle for short little spurts at a time. You've also tried rice cereal for the first time and seemed to do pretty well with it. You like sitting up in your bumbo and absolutely love standing. And you make your mom and dad the happiest people on the planet. We love you so much!
