On Thursday one of my friends Brandi and her little girl Stella came over to play. The girls are only five days apart and had seen each other once before when they were both newborns so it was really fun to see them interact now that they are aware of each other! They seemed to have fun with each other and kept checking each other out. This was Delaney's first official play date and we are going to have many more to come. Stella was so calm and would sit so politely and check everything out... well not my child! She literally cannot sit still and wanted every toy Stella picked up. Stella was a really good sport and didn't seem to mind that Delaney was suddenly interested in every toy she picked up. Delaney even wanted to put Stella's fingers in her mouth instead of hers! So anyway the girls had a lot of fun and so did we (the moms). We are going to a Braves game tomorrow and then to stay with David's sister Staci and her family for a couple of days so we will have more pictures when we get back! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Happy Anniversary!

David and I got married two years ago today! Time has flown by and it just seems like yesterday that I was planning our wedding. Fast forward two years and we have already gotten married and had our sweet little Delaney! We have so much fun together everyday and I'm so glad that I got to marry my best friend! He is the best husband and a great spiritual leader for our marriage and family. He is such a great daddy to Delaney and I love watching them play and interact together. Delaney and I are both very blessed girls to have him to take care of us! I love you David and I am excited to get to spend the rest of our lives together!

7 months old!

I can't believe Delaney is already 7 months old. This post is a couple of days late she was 7 months on Sunday. We went to the doctor today for another weight check and she weighed in at 14lbs and she was 26.75in long! She is still really little but was on the same growth curve she was on last time so the doctor said as long as she was following a curve he was fine with that. So we don't have to go back until she is 9 months. I'm really glad to be done with doctor visits for awhile! Anyway here are some things Delaney is doing at 7 months:

- She is sitting up really well and can play with toys at the same time

- She has started looking back at us in her carseat and it's really funny!

- She can get up on her knees and rock back and forth like she's trying to crawl so I'm sure it won't be long before she is mobile!

- She loves to look in the mirror at herself and watch you talk to her in the mirror

- She has loved the pool everytime we have taken her so far

- She is starting to get a little more hair now and I actually clipped a bow in her hair for the first time the other day but it wasn't very stable!

- She loves to stare at the dogs everytime she wakes up from a nap

-She says Dada now and she says it all the time! (Were waiting on a mama!)

- She sleeps from about 9pm to 6:30-7ish

- She still usually takes two naps or more for about 2-3 hours at a time

- She really likes riding in the shopping cart

- She LOVES to go for walks in her stroller

- She has started using her sippy cup and is doing pretty well with it so far

- She is on stage 2 baby food

- She is wearing 3m to 3-6m clothes and wears a size 1 diaper (we are about to switch to size 2)

So that's a little of what she is doing these days! She is such a happy baby and is at such a fun age. We have so much fun with her everyday and love watching her learn new things everyday! We love you so much!

Beach Trip!

We had a very fun and busy week last week! Staci and her family came in town last weekend so we all got to go eat together on Saturday night. Then Delaney and I had a tea for a family friend on Sunday. Sunday night we got all packed up and headed to the beach on Monday morning! We went down with David's sister Traci and her family. Traci's husband Todd and two of their kids Bradley, and Lindsey had to leave the night we got there to get back but we all got to go out to dinner before they left. Traci and Hunter stayed and we had so much fun! Delaney really liked the pool but she wasn't so sure about the sand or the ocean.. She went in it and she didn't cry or anything but she didn't seem like she was excited about it! It was so relaxing there and the monitor actually reached to the pool right outside the condo so we could relax while Delaney was napping. We ate some great food while we were there and went to some of my favorite shops to look around. It was beautiful the entire time we were there, not even an afternoon shower or anything! Thank you so much to Traci and Todd for inviting us down and for everything! Delaney got a little spoiled by her Aunt Traci while we were with her! We are going back with my mom at the end of July so I'm really excited... I absolutely LOVE Destin!

Another note Delaney turned 7 months old yesterday! I'll do her 7 month post tomorrow because we have to go to the doctor for a weight check of course so I'll have her stats! Hopefully this will be our last every two week weight check! Anyway on to the the best part of the post here are some pictures from our trip!

Busy Week

Well I have been such a slacker on blogging the past week and we have had a lot going on! David got back from Washington last Thursday and he had so much fun. We missed him while he was gone but we got a lot of things done and had fun while my mom was staying with us. My dad came and put up Delaney's swing outside as I said in an earlier post and she is loving it so of course I got some pictures of her in it. We have been reading to Delaney more and she LOVES it! She sits so content and listens and helps flip the pages. I told you about the test we had already had done to test everything under the sun and make sure everything was normal since Delaney was so tiny. All those came back fine and we went to have a weight check last week and she had gained 14oz in two weeks! That solid food must have helped out! We also got her shots while we were there and she did great. She did have a fever from them the next day for the first time but we gave her Tylenol all day pretty much and she was fine by bedtime. We still had one test we to had to run on Delaney they call the "failure to thrive" test.. well it is really a test for Cystic Fibrosis and we finally had it done yesterday. We got the results back today and everything was normal... God is so good! We are so glad to have all the test done and know that NOTHING is wrong with her! I got a picture of how they did the CF test because it looked so pitiful! It didn't hurt her in any way the wraps were just there to make her arm hot so she would sweat. We do have to go back in two weeks to do a weight check again and I'm hoping after that one they will only make us come back once a month or so to check her weight if its good next time. Anyway we are going to the beach with David's sister Traci and her family next week and are so excited! I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures when we get back! Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks!
