We celebrated Mother's day by letting me sleep in a super long time (favorite part of the day!). Xavier brought me breakfast in bed. And then we got dressed up and went to church as a family (something that hasn't happened in a super long time thanks to Adam's "power" callings).
We always have to do a silly photo for Xavier.
After church we came home and made dinner. Adam's parent's and Grandma came over to celebrate. Grandma had not got to hold her only Great Granddaughter EVER so Mother's day was finally the day. (Grandma had broke her shoulder RIGHT before Adley was born so she had to heal before she could hold her.)
And Adam got me a super cute KS shirt, I need to take a picture of and post.
Adam ran his favorite race a few weeks ago but we just got pictures from it, so here they are. It is held every year at Kanopolis Park and he loves it. His boss Clay always runs it too. This year he talked Ben into running it as well.
Here are some of the past posts: 2012 (aka the bald one) and 2010. (For some reason I didn't post about it in 2011.
Saturday - Charla, Jordan and I ran the Color Me Rad race in Wichita. We were a little nervous since I did just have a baby (and surgery) and Charla had just broken her foot, the same time I had a baby. So needless to say, we weren't too sure we were going to make it. But WE did it and surprisingly we actually ran most of it and finished it in about 35 minutes. Considering the circumstances we were pretty proud of ourselves. And we got slightly colorful in the process. In fact everything I wore that day is now pink.
And yes, I do have blue paint on my teeth, apparently I talk too much when I run.
After showers and getting all dolled up again we headed to El Dorado to take Lois out for lunch for her birthday. I should have taken pictures of that but totally spaced it off. It might have been because I was too busy eating my weight in chips and salsa. Then my daddy had made an awesome rhubarb pie so we headed back to the parents house for dessert. It was fantastic!
I took Jordan home to Topeka and then Adley and I headed home to our boys.
This post could have also been titled, "Butt Load of Picture of a Baby
Girl" But she is just so cute, I couldn't narrow down the pictures!
Miss Adley is now 2 months old. She went to the dr today and had her 2 months shots. She was not a happy girl about those at all. She screamed bloody murder until she lost her breath. Then it took her forever to calm down.
Not to mention that Aiden also had to get shots to prepare for Kindergarten next year so he was crying too. It was good times in the dr office today.
Now, back to Adley. She is a tiny little girl compared to the boys. I had to look at their stats to see where everyone was at 2 months. Compared to these chunky boys she is a delicate flower!
Damon was 15lb 4oz and 24.5 inches (in fairness he was 2 1/2 at his appt)
Xavier was 14lb and 24 inches
Aiden was 13lb 12oz and 23.75 inches
Grayson was 12lb 2oz and 23.5 inches
Adley is 10lb 14oz and 23.25 inches long.
She is in the 80 percentile for length and 49 percentile for weight. I guess it is time to fatten her up!
I caught her as she was laughing, I just thought she looked so cute with her head tilted back in a giggle.
Finally a smiley girl...
As you can see she is really starting to smile a lot. She always wakes up smiley in the morning. She is getting stronger and is doing really well at holding her head up. She is also starting to make cute little coos and other sweet baby noises.
My friend Kelly that I worked with at Jim's office bought this outfit for Damon. All the boys have worn it and now it is Little Miss Adley's turn.
I have been calling her Miss Adley (or Little Miss) for about a month now, I'm not sure why but I feel like it suits her. Today at the drs office both the physician's assistant and the doctor were calling her that as well. So it must be a fitting nickname for this little girl.
Miss Adley and I had our first girls weekend. We left for Time Out for Women on Friday afternoon. Picked up a friend here and then picked up my sister in Topeka to go to. My friend Tricia that lives in Platte City met us there.
Friday night Sheri Dew spoke, she is always fabulous. Its the 2nd time I've heard her live and you can't help but love her. She just has such a powerful way of speaking specifically to women.
Before we left on Friday I wasn't feeling a 100% but I was feeling better later so I wasn't too worried about it. However, when I woke up on Saturday I felt miserable. Super tired and ache and my stomach was upset. So needless to say, I didn't pay much attention on Saturday. I'm hoping someone bought the dvd and I can borrow it later.
But heres pictures of Miss Adley in her Minnie Mouse outfit. I think she is the cutest.
When I got home on Saturday, I crawled into bed and slept 15 hours. Thats not counting the two hour nap I took while everyone was at church.
Quick Aiden story: Sunday evening I was laying on the couch and I cut my finger and started to bleed. Aiden ran upstairs to get me a band-aid. He opened it and wrapped it around my hurt finger. After I thanked him for taking care of me he said, "Well they don't call me Dr Aiden for nothing."
