One Month Old

Monroe is one month old. She still mostly loves eating and sleeping. I pretty much hold her all day long, why because I can, lol. I know that these days will go by fast and I want to soak up all of her newborn smells and being so small she can easily fit in my arms. Monroe is following objects with her eyes, looking up when she hears voices and is even smiling a little when we tickle her cheek. As for Elise she has been reading, drawing and singing the Sound of Music like crazy. She is in the highest reading group in her class and is almost at a third grade reading level. We are very proud of her and it's fun to see how much and how quickly she is excelling in school. Carter is doing better and better at pre-school by earning rewards for being a good helper and learning his letters. He is also still in love with Starlord and continues pretending that he is in the Guardians of the Galaxy. Daniel is busy with school and football. The Aggies have won 5 games in a row, woo hoo! Pretty soon we will find out what bowl game the Aggies will attend this year. Good times! As for me I am busy taking care of Miss Monroe and everyone else, in the background at home has been many, many episodes of  Gilmore Girls on Netflix. It keeps me sane on my days with lack of sleep. Plus, hey it was a good show. Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Happy One Month Monroe!

Snoozin away
First time at church
All dressed up to watch the Aggies and Poppa on TV
"Sisters, there were never such devoted sisters"

Hanging out in her crib
Most of my pictures are cropped because of when I edit them on my phone, but in this shot you can see she is just a little thing. So sweet!
Sleeping away
Holding her own pacifier
These two kiddos rocked their parts in the primary program. Nailed it!
Mommy and Monroe
I like this one because she fell asleep holding my finger
Sisters hanging out
Elise always wants to hold her sister right after she comes home from school
A little dancing and the Sound of Music before bedtime
Grandpa and Monroe
Grandma's turn
I might need to frame this one
So ever since Monroe was born we thought she looked a lot like Carter. So over the past few weeks I have done some side by side pictures of both of them. The last picture is the best! Enjoy :)

Carter and Monroe....crazy!
I am sure she will get more of her own look, but it is still fun to watch her change everyday.
