Mother's Day 2008

I had a wonderful first mother's day. I was able to spend the entire day with my family and my beautiful daughter. Alayah was also dedicated today at church and it was an awesome feeling to dedicate her to the Lord and to pledge to raise her in a christianly home. I don't have the pictures uploaded yet, but I will post them as soon as I can. I can't describe how wonderful it is to be a mother and am forever gratful to God for blessing me with her. She continues to amaze me and fill my life with joy. I hope that our bond continues to grow and that I can be all the mother that she needs. It melts my heart when she wakes up smiling at me...or how the sound of my voice can bring a smile to her face. My love is immeasurable. Alayah also took today to show that rolling over has not passed her by. She was rolling from her tummy to her back on both sides!!! She did it all day today. She acted like she had been doing it for a long time even tho I know different. She sits up better and better everyday. She sits up so well that she eventually starts fussing because she is tired but can figure out how to get out of the sitting position. More updates to come Happy Mother's Day to everyone.

Sitting Up!!!

So Alayah has officially decided that she is too good for rolling over and has decided to move on to bigger and better things like oh I don't know....sitting up! I'm so proud of her, but at the same time it is so sad to see her skipping milestones and moving on to the next big thing. It scares me that she is going to start crawling and walking sooner that normal too. :( She can't start crawling without the fundamentals of rolling first right??? Someone please say yes lol

Fav Photo Friday

I love this picture of Alayah....she has this fun quirky personality and it always shines through in pictures. Don't mind the big wet spit up spot on her shirt...we can't always be clean lol

Alayah's first walk

So I thought I'd take Alayah for a walk today since its one of the warmest days it has been this year that didn't have any wind. Well...I don't know what the heck I was thinking lol. She hated it. We didn't make it but three blocks before we had to turn around and come back. The above picture is how we started out..I sat her up like a big girl thinking she would enjoy looking around. Well that was my first mistake.

She started out okay, but she is so short she couldn't really see over the bar on her stroller, so she had nothing to look at. Then I think she bumped her head on the bar when we (I mean I) hit a bump on the sidewalk. That is when the tears started. So I layed her back gave her a blankie and a paci and we started again.

Then she was mad because she was laying down...then she freaked out everytime I car drove by. Then there was the barking dogs, the nasty ol' sun that kept blinding her, the fact that she couldn't see her mommy, and well...mommy ended up carrying her the rest of the way home with her little hands wrapped tightly around my shirt sleeve. Poor baby. Maybe we will try our next walk at a nice quiet park or something.
