Happy four month birthday, Presley Rose!

Dear Presley girl,
My oh my how you've changed over the time we've had you in our arms!  You are really starting to show us exactly who you are.  You are constantly getting bigger, stronger, smarter, funnier, and sweeter every day.  
We saw your sweet pediatrician this week -- Dr. Brodd -- for your 4 month check up.  You weighed 14 lbs. 5 oz. and you were 24.5 inches long!  (Last time we saw him was for your 2 month check up and you were 11 lbs. 12 oz. and 22.5 inches long!)  When we got to the Dr's office, mommy signed you in while you and daddy were sitting down.  All of a sudden, you started CRACKING UP!  It was so awesome.  The more we all laughed at you, the more you laughed!!!  Mommy and Daddy were crying we were laughing so hard and the ladies up front couldn't believe it.  It was the first time you really let out those kind of belly laughs and I am hoping to hear many more of those in our days to come together!  I just captured a quick second of you laughing as…

Father's Day

First of all, let me just say it feels good to change the look of my blog a little bit.  I love to shake things up every once in a while.  Especially considering the recent additions to our life in the past four months -- Presley!  I felt like she wasn't included enough in description and decor so I definitely feel satisfied now.  I wonder how long it'll be until the next update though since she is growing like a weed.

And next, the big exciting thing on the agenda this weekend is Father's Day!  It'll be Tony's first time to celebrate as a Papa Bear himself and I really hope I can make the day special for him and let him know how much he means to Presley and I.  I always knew from the very start of getting to know Tony that he was a gentle giant.  Not only that, but he was respectful and kind to everybody and that really attracted me to him.

So it is definitely not shocking to me today to see him as the sweet, gentle, and loving daddy that he is with Presley.

Not …

What Presley's been up to!

Let's just start with an apology -- I'm so sorry I've been so behind with my posts.  And truly no one will be more sorry for the lack of posts than myself.  I want to keep up with posts regularly about home life and all the changes Presley is going through as this is something I plan to keepsake and always look back on.  The last entry was on May 31st... two weeks in the baby world is a long time as many of you know!

We got our first family portrait done last week and I couldn't be happier to finally have a nice picture of the three of us.  And thanks to Portrait Innovations, it was only $10.  Love that place!  (Except for how bad they try to upsell -- that gets pretty obnoxious!)  I'll post our family pictures sometime soon for you guys to see!  I think we'll take Presley to get her own pictures on her 6 month birthday and then again once she turns 1 and I really can't wait to get pictures of just her.  We got her newborn pictures taken by Kristi at Rick …
