One of many firsts

First of all, I can't believe it is November already.  Freaking insane.
Secondly, Sophia had one of her "first" moments this past week.  Thanks to my sister, Sophia was Snow White for her first Halloween!

She slept throughout the whole thing.  But I can't tell you how freaking adorable she was in that costume.  Which also brings me to that this time next year,she will be walking.... crazy!

Sophia also had her first blate!!!!  Nikki who blogs over at From My Life to Our Life paid us a visit yesterday.  It was so great to see #babybigtruck as she has grown so much from the last time I saw her.  So adorable and she has the most beautiful eyes ever!!!!  Who would have known that when Nikki and I had our first blate, we were bloggers and here we both are now blogger friends and both first time mamas.  Gotta love this blogging community.  I just realized that Nikki and I failed to take a single picture together but we did manage to get one of the girls.



Sophia's face cracks me up every time.  Clearly she wasn't ready for pictures. We also took about 5 pictures and her facial expression is the exact same in all of the photos. Ha!

Besides these "firsts" we have experienced, everything else is going good over in these parts.  We have been lucky with some good fall weather days.  The hubs is home for three weeks with Sophia and I which is great for him to bond with her.  Sophia now weighs 6lbs and 15ozs!  Doctors are very happy with her weight gain.

Overall we are surviving as first time parents.  Hubs and I also celebrated an anniversary... our proposal anniversary!

Can't believe that he proposed in 2007, and here we are now with our first child.  Amazing.

Sadie also has been adjusting very well to our new family dynamic.  She loves Sophia and just wants to lick her from head to toe.

One of the perks of me being home is that when my niece and nephew have off from school we are able to babysit.  Can I just tell you that we truly are the coolest aunt and uncle ever.  Case in point:

We had these inflatable chairs for years up in a box in the attic.  Finally we thought yesterday it would be great to bring them down for the kids to use.  They loved it!  But those damn things took FOREVER to inflate.  But it was well worth it to see those smiling faces.

Happy first week of November.... now let me see if I can actually attempt to get ready without a crying baby interruption.
