Cute Stuff

The gifts are getting cuter and cuter!

Last week was a great week! If you didn't know, there is no shopping to be done in this town. So my guilty pleasure is Internet shopping and packages. That daily trip to the post office just makes my day, or ruins it if we miss a day! Last week we got lots of good stuff!

Jason's sister sent Paislee a bathing suit and cover up for this summer, and also a SUPER CUTE diaper bag! THANK YOU Aunt Amber, we LOVE it!

We also got a package from one of my sorority sisters, Berrin--who is IMPOSSIBLE to reach if you don't have her phone number! Berrin DOES read my blog though and I just want her to know that WE LOVE the outfit that she sent for Miss Paislee, it is my absolute FAVORITE outfit hanging in Paislee's HUGE, jam packed closet. Even Jason loves it, we have been looking for the perfect little 'sailor' outfit and you found it! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! This picture does it no justice, thanks to my killer photography skills:
I cannot WAIT to put her in it and take a picture of her and her Daddy on his boat :o)

Yesterday we started tummy time with Paislee. She seemed to L-O-V-E it (man, that word appears a lot in this blog post!). She is looking more and more like her Mama everyday, I can't wait to get lots of my baby pictures and post them, it is CRAZY how much she looks like I did when I was a baby. Funny thing is, I didn't think I was that cute as a baby--until now :o)


Paislee LOVES bathtime here lately. She just chillaxes, and kicks back and lounges in her little bath tub. It's the cutest thing. I try to give her a bath before bed every night, although it doesn't happen every night I have good intentions, I promise! Jason and I are finally getting things figured out with bath time--put the towel in the dryer so its warm when she gets out, wash her hair last so she isn't cold through her whole bath, pour warm water on her all through her bath, massage her with baby oil, etc.... I think it really relaxes her and gets her nice and ready for bed :o)

Lately, she has been adopting MY sleeping habits from when I was pregnant. For the past 2 nights she hasn't gone to sleep until after midnight, and sleeps until the early morning, and then I put her in the bed and snuggle with her and she goes BACK to sleep until about 10 or 11--it's NICE! 

She sleeps most of the day, and is awake most of the evening from about 5 until bedtime, with a few short naps in between. So in case you were wondering, HOW is she finding the time to write this long blog post with all of these pictures?? Here's how:
She is fast asleep in her swing as I type this :o)

We have made a lot of progress since last week when I couldn't put her down! Still, I'm sure a few months from now I would give anything for her to want me to hold her all day, everyday, so I am still going to take advantage of that for as long as I can, it won't be like this for long!

Off to work on the baby book and write 'thank you' cards. Hope everyone is having a great week so far! The snow is almost all melted and it is 55 degrees outside today!

Please keep all of the people in Tennessee in your thoughts and prayers. I follow a lot of blogs of girls from Nashville, and to see what that town is going through right now is horrifying and makes me want to cry. Please take a minute when you read this and say a prayer for them, they truly need it right now!
