Blessed with a Belly

I am not saying that I am not always a “Proud Momma”, but certain things just seem to make me smile a little bigger and make me want to send out massive emails so my family can see Miss Neely in all of her glory. I had one of those moments this week. Neely has struggled with her weight since we came home from the hospital. We were in the doctor’s office almost twice a week for weight checks and I was going to see a lactation consultant to have her weighed before and after feeding to make sure she was getting enough milk (which she wasn’t). I have fed, pumped, fed, pumped and then fed and pumped some more since we came home from the hospital. Finally, I feel like we are making progress. I was giving Sweet Cheeks a bath this week and Derrick was busy snapping pictures. Later when I looked back at the pictures I was happily surprised…

Yay! She has a belly! I could not be happier! Sometimes you just need to step back and have one of those moments where you realize your hard work is paying off…this was my moment!

I am not by any means trying to cover up her baby belly in that last pic. I was just trying to keep her from sliding down her tub for the 100th time. Wet babies are more slippery than I had imagined!

That's How We Stroll

Today was a gorgeous day! We finally were able to take Miss Neely Jo on her first walk (ride) in her stroller. Derrick had to take the day off from work because I had to have a root canal so he was able to go with us. And I am sure he was happy or else he would have missed this sweet sight…

Thanks to her Nana, Neely stayed nice a snuggly in her lil outfit. I know it is still a bit too big for her, but we just couldn’t resist putting her in it today. And isn’t it better to wear your clothes too big rather than too small. I am thinking yes.

Having a baby is busy! I was hoping to post more often with lost of pictures of Baby Neely, but the past week has been CRAZY! Kinda like her hair...

But as CRAZY as it is, I love every minute of it.
