Welcome To Our Blog!

We are pleased to announce our first baby will be brought into this world around October 28, 2011! This is my first attempt at making a blog, so please bear with me through the process. This seemed like the perfect place to document it all, so here goes nothing!

3 Months!

Alexa is 3 months old today! She is growing so fast. And I just noticed that she is looking off to the right in all 3 of these pictures... there must always be something really interesting over there. Maybe next month I'll get her to look to the left! And it is also her second day of daycare! She got great reports from her first day, so I am hoping to hear more good reports today. It definitely helps ease my mind knowing she is in good hands and having fun :)

Roll With It!

Alexa officially rolled over today! We had done tummy time on the bed up until a few weeks ago, and decided we needed to move to the floor because the bed was too soft and not giving her enough leverage to lift herself up. She had rolled over twice on the bed, but she had not done it for a couple months. But today on the floor she rolled over twice! She scared herself both times, and the pouty lip came out with some tears, but we are hoping she continues to do it and gets used to it. We are loving the milestones! And the best part is we were both home to witness her do it :)

Alexa's First Christmas

We headed back to Kentucky for Christmas this year. It was a fantastic trip and Alexa got to meet lots of family! She met her other grandparents, her Uncle(s) Will and Andrew, Great Aunt Rosemary, Cousin(s) Sara, Garrett, Austin, and Jacob, plus significant others. She had already met her Uncle Kris, Aunt Rachel, and cousin Chloe, but it was great to be able to visit with them again. We stayed at my parents farm in Henry County, about 30 minutes outside of Louisville, so for the most part we just visited with family. We did get into Louisville a few times for lunch, a Cardinals basketball game, and to visit with friends. Alexa did great on the plane ride both ways. Overall, it was a very successful trip and we all had a great time. Here are some pictures:
