Father's Day and Sleepy Time Pictures

Just a cute pic of my girl sleeping!

Shyla's first time using, and seeming to like, her bouncy chair!

Today we went to Sabino Canyon with Gabi and Dash. This pic was taken right before she spit-up all of the milk she ate.

Happy Father's Day Stevie! He was thrilled to be wearing matching outfits with his daughter!

Another Update! Two in one week! Hot-Dog!

This is my 2nd post of the week! Some of you may read into that as an indication that I am getting the hang of this motherhood thing. I certainly wouldn't make such a bold statement but I won't stop you from believing what you want. Enjoy our pictures!
Shyla went with me to a three-hour meeting at my school dressed as a watermelon! She slept through most of it! I guess our discussion of classroom management and procedures was about as exciting to her as it was to me!
This is quickly becoming one of our more frequent poses! Check out those lips! (On Shyla, not Stevie)
I love my girl! Look at her eyes! She's changing so much and so quickly!

Pancake watching over her little sister! She has adjusted quite well to the new family member!
Mom - I hope you're happy with the update!

Just Pictures

Time for the weekly update! Enjoy these pictures and feel free to leave a comment!

We had a lovely visit with Alexia, Andy, and Hillary. It was so nice of them to come out and meet Shyla and it was so great to see them! Shyla slept through the majority of it, but I know she appreciated them coming out too. This is a picture of Shyla with Alexia.

And here she is with Hillary who made her a beautiful blanket with monkies on it. Monkies are quickly becoming her favorite animal!

It's really hard work being a baby these days!

We spend a lot of time sleeping. But, look, her legs are slowly stretching out!

Stevie was off work last Friday so we spent the day with Grandma and Grandpa Forgacs. Here is Pat feeding Shyla.
We also had a really nice visit with Gabi and Dash last week. I will post pictures after I get Gabi's okay to do so!
Have a great week everyone and stay tuned for more pictures!

Binky Wishes and Milk-Filled Dreams

Our beautiful baby girl!

Sleeping during tummy-time!

It was an exciting week! Shyla's cord finally fell off on her 2-week birthday which meant we were able to give her a bath for the first time! She actually enjoyed it. There aren't many pictures because we were both involved in the bathing process.

I love this picture except that she looks much too grown up!

I'm not sure what the blog title means, but it's cute! I apologize for the delay in updated posts and pictures. I've been told numerous times to "sleep when the baby sleeps" and so I do. And when she is awake I just want to be holding her and interacting with her. Hence: the house is a mess, the dog is rarely walked, and the blog is not as up-to-date as it should be! But, I hope you enjoy this update and pictures of our little angel.Weight-Check:
  • when Shyla was born she weighed 7 lbs 9 oz
  • when we left the hospital she weighed 7 lbs 3 oz
  • when we went to our first doctor appointment she weighed 6 lbs 15 oz (don't worry, he says babies can lose up to 10% of their birth weight and still be very healthy)
  • three days later she weighed 7 lbs 4 oz (great increase!)
  • one week after that she weighed 7 lbs 14 oz - she is very healthy and thriving!

eating, sleeping, & pooping

that is pretty much what we do all day! This is a chubby-wubby picture!

Shyla is very patriotic! Here she is practicing her pledge of allegiance!

Not sure if she is laughing or pooping in this picture! Maybe both!

Ahhh yes, her favorite position: the koala bear. Sometimes I think she wishes she were still in utero; curled up and warm.
