sandra's baby shower.

My sweet friend Meagan wanted to throw a baby shower for our friend Sandra since the first time Sandra had a baby - she went into labor on the day of her shower! Well, lucky Meagan just signed on a gorgeous new house, so since she is in the middle of moving- I offered to have it at my house. Sandra is now having her second baby and has now had her first shower! I was honored to be able to host it with Meagan at my house. Lots of lovely ladies came and had an amazing night showering Sandra with lots of cute things for baby Castle!
Wish I had more pictures of people- and not via my phone! They all came out super fuzzy ... maybe there will be a camera in my future? (hint hint brock- mother's day! ;) )

Thank you to all the ladies who came and helped make Sandra's shower so special!

hadley's blessing day.

Hadley Jeanne Andrus was given a name and a blessing by her father at our church. It was such a special day that we got to spend with so many of our family and friends. I always have known how special a baby blessing is, but nothing can compare to the day your husband blesses your baby girl. It was beautiful. 
Hadley wore a dress that I wore when I was little- my Mom had saved it and let me have it! 
Mom insisted that her granddaughter could not go to church without shoes, and showed up with these:
After the blessing, we had a luncheon at our house for all who came.
Love our family of 3! 
(ignore my disgusting hair! It was windy and raining!)

3 months.

That's right! This smiling face is 3 months old!
This month she has really embraced smiling... and her hands! She's discovered they can touch really soft things- like her bunny she is obsessed with..
...and they can go in her mouth... CONSTANTLY!
She has been going to bed about 10pm and waking up around 5:30 or 6 and we just stick a binki in her mouth (about every 30min- it falls out, she wakes up) until 8am. Yet sometimes, I go into the guest room to find this...
She sleep great at night in her bed, but for some reason during the day she refuses to nap  there. (this was my attempt at nap time in her bed..)
Nap time on my chest though? Not a problem. So at 10, 2, and 5:30- you can find me in the glider..
Or she will sneak in a nap on her dad...
Unless, I have errands to run and then I use nap time as the perfect opportunity to get things accomplished out and about! She's a great shopping buddy during this time- she hits that car and is OUT!
Brock took a trip to Vegas for March Madness with his brothers.. so Hads and I were on our own for 6 days! (we took a picture together to send to Brock each day)
We took the one on one time to do lots of things! We went to Waco and Hadley met her great-grandma (my mom's mom) Meemaw.
Four generations!
Went to Sunday dinner and Aunt Danielle took some pictures!
Of course Hadley smiled before and after the photographer was there- it was just me with an iphone...
And had a visit from my cousin Casey, aunt Connie, aunt Shelly, & cousins Holly & Lacey- we took the opportunity to chow down at Babes.
She can spin herself in quite the circle while on her back, has mastered tummy time, loves taking a bath, and become quite vocal!
She had another hip ultrasound- and we are going in for a second opinion next week...
We don't understand how she is getting cuter by the day...but she is :)
