She's got PERSONALITY!!!

Mallory's little personality is starting to show! She gives us a little more each day. Here are a couple pictures from this past week. Thanks, Andy, for taking pictures of her while I'm at work. Keep doing it 'cause I don't want to miss ANYTHING!

3 months old!

Mallory turned 3 months on July 21st. Here are my favorite 3-month pictures of her.

Back to work...

Well, I did it. I went back to work. Leaving Mallory for such a long period of time was VERY difficult for me. I felt like it ripped my heart out. But when I got home she was still alive and she still knew who I was. So, I guess she CAN survive without me. Who knew!

I have to look at it like it's only 4 hours at a time. I get to visit her during my lunch since Andy's watching her now, and my parents will watch her when school starts back up.

It wasn't easy, and I didn't like it, but I have to tell myself that millions of moms do this every day. While I realize moms work all the time, it still doesn't make it any easier. Hopefully, I'll adjust and the pain will ease up soon. I miss her all the time.

Dad and Mallory...

Here's a cute picture of Andy and Mallory walking on the beach.
The family going out to dinner in Florida.
Mallory slept through most of her beach time, but I know deep down she enjoyed it!

Home Sweet Home

We've done a lot of traveling over the past 2 weeks. We've been out of town for 11 of the past 14 days. We traveled to Florida, Rough River, and Louisville. Mom, Dad, and Mallory are done traveling for a while. It feels good to be home, where we have everything we need. Maybe we can get back on a schedule before I go back to work on July 15th.

At the Lake

Thanks to Mike & Jan Martin, we were able to go to Rough River for a few days. Mom and Dad came too! We had such a great time soaking up the sun. Mallory really enjoyed her time in the water. It seems to relax her. Tootsie has also grown quite fond of Mallory's turtle float!

on the beach...

We went to Florida with the Raines family over July 4th. Mallory's first 10+ hour car ride was tough on our little 10 week old baby, who could barely hold up her head. We survived, though, and now her neck is very strong!

Here's a picture of mom and Mal chillin' on the beach. We had a fantastic vacation with Don, Mel, and Christina. We wish Emilie could have come...
