Bye Bye Summer

Last post of the day! I had a great weekend with my family. All of Maya's greatparents came to visit. I even had a mini photo shoot. Check back later for pictures.

Last weekend I spent a little bit of time just walking around my house and my neighbor's house. I took pictures of flowers and bees. It's amazing what you find so close to home. Here are some of my favorites:

Food Coma

Pretty red dress & Mary Janes

You're not my pacifier....

Here it is... Now to get it in my mouth

Baby Animals and Joey

Looks like my camera lens is more fun than her book.

here's a much better toy :)

Love the look on her face here... "mom, tummy time again???"

Happy birthday to me!

I keep telling my husband this is my last birthday. Next year I turn the big 30 and I don't want to think about it :) Last year at this time I celebrated my birthday by seeing Maya for the first time. We had our first ultrasound!! We saw her kick me and we found out we are having a baby girl. Brian and I had two girl names picked out but no boy names. When we got into the car after the ultrasound I mentioned names and Brian just looked at me and said "Maya it is!"

Go Bears!

Here's Maya getting ready to cheer on the Bears a couple weekends ago. Sadly, the Bears lost BADLY two weekends in a row.

Look at those rolls on her thighs!

see, she's so close to crawling.

here she is in cousin Hunter's exersaucer.

7 months old!

I thought it would be nice to show a little age progression for this post. She is growing so fast! She's been sitting up on her own for a month and she just loves standing.

Here she is at itty bitty 3 weeks old. She was so tiny. At her two week check up she was 6 pounds.

This is at 2 months. She's still pretty little but you can definitely see some changes in her legs. She weighed about 9 pounds.

At 3 months she weighed 10 pounds 8 ounces, double her birth weight!

She really found her feet here at 4 months. You can definitely see her playing with them! She weighed just under 12 pounds.

Look at those cute piggy tails at 5 months. She's close to sitting up and weighed 13 pounds.

Here's the little munchkin sitting up on her own at 6 months. She just gets cuter and cuter everyday. She weighed 14 pounds 8 ounces.

Finally, here she is now at 7 months. She was just under 16 pounds. She loves standing and is so close to crawling. I know she can do it, she just refuses to be on her belly!

Almost there!

Then she falls on her belly and starts crying

I figured out a sneaky trick. If the exposure isn't quite right, turn the picture to black and white and voila!! I just love this picture. So natural.

The rest of the 7 month pictures are up at
