Girls become lovers who turn into mothers.

Well, here we are. Addy May is over a month old, and time has FLOWN by. I am excited to say that I've gotten into the swing of being a mommy. And I love it. Matt and I have been loving hanging out with our little person and seeing how she grows and changes every day. A lot of people have asked how I have been feeling and the answer is: great! I have recuperated from the painful first couple of weeks, but I'm feeling good now, and I'm slowly but surely losing the baby weight. Well, here's a photo documentation of what we've been up to. I'll add captions as necessary. :) Enjoy!

Addy May in Daddy's arms.

Looks like we went to church? Nope. We stayed home. I kinda milked that. But we've repented and now we're church-attending, God fearing folk again.

Addy May is helping Daddy play the piano. IN HER SLEEP!

She didn't quite enjoy her first bath, but she's warmed up to them. As sad as her face looks, it still cracks me up.

Addy May giving Daddy some loves on Easter. That is the special Easter dress Daddy picked out for her. Presh.

Our first day at church as a family. She did great in Sacrament and half of Sunday School. After I tanked her up, we peaced out. She's a great excuse. :)

Hanging out on Daddy's arm.

When we got home from church, we brought her in and when we lifted up the car seat cover this is what we saw. We laughed hysterically, and then fixed it. We went back out to the car to get our church materials, and when we came back in, it was like this again!! She's already a Star Trek junkie. We'll have to figure out something else to watch with her. ;)

Other things we've been up to:
  • We just got our entire garden planted with the help of Matt's buddy Gundy. We've got corn, peas, green beans, 3 types of potatoes (we're in Idaho after all), bell peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, 3 types of squash, carrots, onions, and beets. Whew. That's a lot. Hopefully we get something out of it.
  • Matt got a new position at work. He works swing shifts now. That means that one week, he goes to work at 2pm and comes home at about 12:45am. The next week he leaves the house at 5:45am and comes home at about 5pm. So far so good. We get lots done the mornings that he's home, and Addy May and I hang out the rest of the time.
  • We've moved our 6 new chicks out to the chicken coop because they are big enough. They won't end up laying eggs for another few months. Now we've got 10 chickens.
  • Matt is blessing this little pumpkin butt on Sunday, June 5th at 11 am in the Moreland 4th Ward for those of you that are interested in attending. Also, I made a little electronic birth announcement for Addison. It's a lot easier to send an email than get it all printed out and sent via USPS. Just sayin:

That's about it. Any questions?
