Would you look at her?!

Look who just turned a month old yesterday! We did a little photo shoot. When I upload to blogger my pictures come out looking weird and grainy but oh well. You get the idea!

This first picture is a pose and outfit that I've used with all three of my girls for their 1-month photo. I want to take all three and frame them together!

Sweet baby body

Super chunk!

Okay so I've been up since about 5 am (it is 8:30 now) and I'm so tired my head hurts. I don't do well with little sleep. Poor baby just didn't want to nurse, didn't want to lay this way or that way, didn't seem to have gas, didn't have a dirty diaper or anything. So finally I put her in the bassinet and she fussed a little but laid there staring around the room. No sleeping in there though. I'm wondering if she's starting to want to be held less or if she was just having a hard time this morning. Poor baby!

I'm off to try to stay awake and do something productive. I'm holding a very VERY asleep baby now. But I can't sleep with her since Abby is still up.

I can't wait for Thanksgiving. It's the one day of the year that I don't give myself a guilt trip for eating as many calories as we eat! One day won't hurt ya. I'm looking forward to the green bean casserole, corn pudding, real mashed potatoes with real gravy........ oh yeah! So totally ready. What's your favorite dish(es) that you're looking forward to?!

Tomorrow night we are hosting our Thanksgiving Dinner Outreach in the projects. We make a simple Thanksgiving dinner for low-income families, most of whom do not have family or family nearby to celebrate the holiday with. We get a lot of kids that come without their parents as well, which isn't unusual. So looking forward to seeing these people get some food in their bellies and smiles on their faces!

That's great that you do the outreach program! That warms my heart!

What dish am I looking forward to? My mom's famous clog your arteries super fattening but oh so good mac and cheese! :)

LOVE the pics! She's SO sweet!

I'm looking forward to eating everything on Turkey day, too! Especially a piece of pecan pie...

Happy 1 month birthday to Zoe! And beautiful pictures.

I'm mostly craving turkey this year. A really good, salty turkey! Yum! :-D

Meredith said...

I can't believe how much she's grown already--incredible!

Just gorgeous

just me, dawn said...

she is so very very sweet :)

what dish? well, as I don't get to go to my family, I don't really look forward to the food at thanksgiving.....they have "weird" traditions in this family, like pinapple in the stuffing. I will have to be happy that I won't be tempted to stuff myself LOL.

SOOoOOOoOoO cute!! Do frame them all...that's just precious.

Love that y'all are doing the T-Day dinner in the projects! Blessing the socks off those folks.

Awe, she's so cute!! I wish I could come to your outreach program to help - that's such a nice idea. We do a thanksgiving breakfast for the patients at the clinic. We cook pancakes, bacon, sausage, etc. I'm going to stop by and help out there, I think.

I'm most excited about TURKEY (boring, I know, but I LOVE IT) and pumpkin pie. The basics. I also make some mean sour cream and chive mashed potatoes that are typically a favorite. I just finished my pumpkin pie so I don't have to do it tomorrow. :-)

I can't think of any exciting sides b/c both Jeremy and I are picky eaters. Oh well, we'll certainly have enough food. We're dining alone this year down in SC.
