Push It

Today Lily is four weeks old (I am working on another video slide show to document her first month of life) and I got my push present from Danny! I don't know who came up with the idea of a push present, but I am a major fan! When I brought it up to Danny months and months ago he of course thought it was ridiculous, but I used my powers of persuasion and pregnant lady status to get him on board.

Danny isn't great at coming up with gift ideas on his own (probably because I don't give him the chance) so I told him what I thought would be really special and he delivered!

He got me a ring that matches my wedding band but has alternating diamonds and rubys (Lily's birth stone).


I love that I can wear it alone or stack it with my wedding band or wear it with both my wedding band and ring. So many options! I also love that it is something timeless that I can give to Lily one day.

Happy Birthday

Today is my wonderful daddy's 60th birthday and it is Lily's 2 week birthday!!!

I am pretty bummed that I can't be with my dad to celebrate since this is a big birthday, but when he was here for Lily's birth, I made sure to get him a cake and sing to him.


Since today is Lily's birthday as well, we had to head to the doctor for her 2 week check up. Our little lady is growing, growing growing!!! When we went to the doctor last week Lily weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and was 18.75 inches long. Today the little nugget weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. It is crazy that a baby can grow that much in just one week!  The doctor said everything looks perfect which is music to our ears!

Here are some pictures from week two of life!

One Week

Today Lily is one week  old! The last time I blogged was the day we were headed to the hospital so I thought I would put together a little recap of the last weeks events in pictures.
