Christmas 2012

We went to Reno for Christmas and we got to spend time with all of our family and even some friends. It was so wonderful to introduce Eisley to most of the family for the first time. She loved her cousins, spending time in front of the fire, watching the snow fall, and looking at all the doggies. Besides her first Christmas she also experienced her first flight and first snow. She was held by so many different people and won the hearts of all that met her. We even tried some pintrest photo idea's that we stated "nailed it" when we took it.  Enjoy this Photo dump of some of my favorite snapshots.

Eisleygram II

Here is the second installment of Eisleygram (Instagram dump) these were some of my favorite quick iPhone snapshots from the past couple months. I have a love hate relationship with my iPhone camera, I love how it is always close to capture all the little moments throughout my day with Eisley...but I also hate that because of this I don't break out any of the real cameras enough.

So I got accepted to join Top Mommy Blogs, it is a website that has all the top mom blogs listed and ranked, so if you want to read other mom blogs you can find some there, also....you should click this link to give me a vote :)

Dear Eisley....Three Months.

Dear Eisley,

Whoa! time flies...I think I will be saying this every month. But truly it seems like it is going at warp speed. You are so fun, I love your little personality...well its not that little. You know what you like and don't like, and you are not afraid of letting us know. You have this new little fake cry, its sort of your warning "if you don't change something pretty soon I am going to really cry" cry. We just laugh when we hear it and try to figure out what you want...you already have us wrapped around your little fingers.

You are freaking strong. You have been since birth but you have all these new tricks you can do now. You still hate tummy time but you started rolling over onto your back, the first time you did it you cried because it scared you to move like that. Also, you love standing up, we grab your little hands and help you up, once standing you give a huge grin and a girly squeal to let us know you are having a good time. You also want to be sitting up all the time now, you love looking around and watching the world around you--I think you just started to notice that there is a world around you!

We have somewhat settled into a schedule of sorts... though I sort of just wing it at times. We started a little bedtime routine where we sing some songs, read a book and pray. Sometimes you make it through and sometimes you're asleep before we can get to any of it. Speaking of sleeping, you are a funny girl! When you start to get fussy or overtired, you like to be face-palmed...it looks really bad to unsuspecting onlookers, but I think you just like the feel of our skin close to you. I don't think you will have a problem with claustrophobia in the future.

This month was busy, you got your first shots, went on your first plane ride, celebrated your first Christmas and slept in too many different places to count. You are one laid back baby, you just went with it all....well not without some crying here and there.  During all of this you somehow grew up, you no longer look like a newborn and you have lost that newborn smell...it is mind blowing how much you change everyday. I simultaneously love seeing you grow and never want you to change.

You are teaching me so much, how to love, how to give, and how to live more than I ever knew was possible. Thanks little one.
