Teething- Round Two!

It's that time again! Elsie currently has 2 more teeth (on the top) that are pushing their way through her gums. It's been about 4 days since I noticed the first one. I don't remember it taking this long for the bottom teeth, but she is doing so well! She only cries if I try to feel if either of the teeth are poking through yet. And in case you are wondering, one has barely cut through, but the other has not. Poor girl. 

Teething... One of those things that we all had to go through at one stage. But we don't remember how bad it was until we have a baby that's going through the horrible process. I was amused when I saw this illustrated guide to teething. (thank you,

Well, I guess I have a lot to look forward to...

Happy Valentine's Day

Today I'm kind of lucky. I have 2 valentines! Since Ashley is at school/work all day today, I'm glad I got to spend some time with my other valentine, Elsie! I love them both so much! Now you must see this disastrous attempt at a photoshoot. Haha. I think most moms will relate...

Oh, and my sweetheart surprised me with a beautiful necklace!

My baby is growing so fast! I was looking through some pictures of her from a few months ago, and she has changed a lot! Maybe it's just the haircut. I don't know.

This whole mom thing is fun, especially when you have a camera and you get to capture cute moments like these.

My name is...

I've been told (by my mom) that most babies say dad before they say mom. So you can imagine how excited and proud I was of Elsie when she started crying for "Mama" as she woke up from her naps. I think that lasted for one glorious week. Then she learned how to say "Dadadadadada...." And all of a sudden, everyone and everything was Dada. She doesn't want Mom anymore, she wants Dad. When she's hungry, she asks for "Dadada" When she's tired, she's "daaaaa." When Ashley gets home she gleefully looks up and practically shouts "DAH" But what about me. What's my name? -- You guessed it -- "Dadad"
