3 Months

A few weeks ago I took Gwyn to have her three month pictures taken. Here are a few of my favorites.

Tres joli bebe!
I had some pictures taken of her in her blessing dress. I just love this picture because you can see the hand crocheted booties that she wore with the dress. They had little pearls on the tops of them, so cute. Love the Amish handy work around here! Thanks again Gigi, she looked beautiful!

Baby Einstein

Ok, first I have to say I am sorry that every post now is Gwyn, but I can't help it...I am OBSESSED with her!
So Eli and I don't let her watch tv (BabyWise says...for those that don't know BabyWise is my other obsession and what I credit to Gwyn sleeping through the night at 6 weeks...that tv for little ones before a certain age is too stimulating for their little nervous systems and can affect their sleep, etc.) but since she turned 3 months we thought it might be ok to let her watch Baby Einstein every once and while.
So this is a pic of Gwyn kicking back and watching her first Baby Einstein, which by the way she kept looking at Eli like "um, I know this isn't what you watch, cut the crap, this is for little babies and I am a big girl!"
Anyway, this is from his phone so it is kind of grainy but you get the idea...she is HYSTERICAL! Plus this really gives you a good side shot of her Mohawk and no I don't comb it like that and no it won't go down, it is out of control!

Gwyn Tour 2009

Three weeks ago we went to Utah to show our little bundle of joy off to all of our friends and family. From the second we touched down we were here, there and everywhere on our "Gwyn Tour." She was the star of the she should be.

While we were there we blessed Gwyn and Eli gave the most beautiful blessing. Many of you know my husband is a very "non emotional" kind of guy so when he gave Gwyn her blessing we were all touched to hear him get a little emotional about his sweet little girl. After all we have been through I think it was an emotional day for us both to be holding our little one in her perfect little white dress and know that she will be ours forever! Thank you Eli for a beautiful blessing.

In the words of my mom, "Beautiful blessing, beautiful baby, beautiful day!"

Of course I had my hair done while I was there and of course I had to have Gwyn's picture with Ramez since he is pretty much a member of our family. Gwyn's hair is almost long enough for him to style...can't wait for that!

All tuckered out after a very very busy trip, gotta love the drool! I must say though she was perfect on the plane out and back, in fact most people didn't even know there was a baby on the plane, phew! She is a fantastic little traveler and the life of the party. I am so glad we were able to make it out to see our family and friends. Thank you all for making it such a wonderful trip. See you at Christmas!
