Shelby's First Easter

Shelby's first Easter was so fun! 

We kicked it off by getting her picture made with the Easter Bunny. (Those had to be purchased and will post when they come in.)  Here she is with the Rogers boys- how cute are these 3?!

We spent Easter in Paragould with Grammie and Pops.  Here is Shelby in her First Easter hat and bib from Grammie.

This is all the loot she got from Grammie and Pops.  The big basket is for the rest of us kiddos.  We all shared.

Shelby and Daddy in their Easter outfits!

Close up of Shelby in her Easter Bonnet!  MeMommy bought her this sweet outfit. Thanks, MeMommy!

Here is our family!

And this is Papa Wendell!  Papa is Matt's grandfather and Shelby's great grandfather.  What a special memory to see them meet.  He was so proud!

I hope you and yours had a very Happy Easter!

Shelby is 2 Months Old

Happy 2 Month Birthday, Sweet Baby Girl!

  • You love baths now!  You like to lick the water whenever I wash your face and you smile really big when I put lotion on you- which you used to hate!
  • You LOVE to kick your legs.  Sometimes, you kick your arms and legs at the same time and go so fast.
  • You slept through the night from 10:30pm- 7am the night you turned 2 months! You don't do this every night but you frequently sleep in long periods of time.  This makes mommy so happy!
  • You cried so hard when you got your 2 month shots!  I had never heard you cry in pain before and it made me so sad!  I cried too when the nurse left the room.
  • You laughed for the first time while I was changing your diaper.  This is such a special memory that I will never forget!
  • You made your first road trip to see Aunt Lauren in Mobile, AL.  You did great in the car- Memommy road in the back with you while I drove. You slept basically the whole time.  We had a blast while we were there.
  • You love when your daddy comes home!  You have stopped fussing at that time.  I love to watch you when he plays with you!  Your whole face lights up.  You save your special smiles for him.
  • You have really started cooing and talking to everyone.  It's so fun to hear the noises you make!
  • You love to be held while you nap.  It's hard to keep you asleep when I put you down.  You would rather be held- but sometimes mommy has to get things done!
  • This month, mommy learned some bittersweet news.  I found out that my company that I've worked with for almost 7 years is restructuring. My job is being eliminated.  That means that I will be staying home with you!  I've loved my job, but I am really excited to spend everyday with you.  I had been praying because I was anxious at the thought of leaving you everyday.  I think God answered my prayer in a most unexpected way.  He said, "Ok, Lana!  I'll just take your job away!"  I can't wait to be your full time mommy! 
We love you so much, Shelbs!

Love, Mommy
