Country Baby

WARNING: Picture Overload
I have always loved babies in bib overalls without a shirt on, so I decided to take a few pictures of Macey.
My sister gave me my nephews overalls while was pregnant that he had when he was a baby.
My babies!!! 
I love these sweet little feet!!! 
She was fascinated with something!! 
My big girl!!! 
She loves to play with this little tricycle at my parents house! 
Love this sweet baby girl to pieces!!! 
Sweet cheeks!!! 
Buddy and Macey are really starting to like one another.
 Well she has always liked him, but he is still working on getting use to her being around.
Poor guy has had a rough time adjusting to being a big brother!!!

Where is my baby!?!?

I feel like Macey is changing everyday and getting so big girl like!
She is constantly talking about something, pulling herself up on everything, eating some table foods, and she has such a personality.
This was taken on July 21st when she turned 9 months. I can't believe my baby is already 9 months. This has been the hardest month so far for me. It made me think how we will be planning a first 1st Birthday party in just a few months. 
We had her 9 month appointment on Monday and we have a perfectly healthy baby girl!!!
Macey:
-You weigh 18lbs
-You are 27 inches
-You started saying Dada tonight
-You are constantly talking
-You still do not like your crib
-Size 2 diapers but almost in size 3
-You wear 6-9 month clothes and a few 12 months

Fruit Pizza!!!

I made a Fruit Pizza last weekend for a cook out and it was so good!!!
Bake a sugar cookie roll as directed (I made small circles and stuck them together to make a circle)
Mix 8oz cream cheese, 3/4 cups sugar, 1 tsp vanilla together (I used a blender) and spread over cookie once cooled.
Top with your favorite fruit!!!
Super easy and super good!

A Baby Shower

One of my friends from High School, well actually Elementary and Middle also is expecting her first baby...Isla Elizabeth Claire. Macey and I went to her baby shower and it was so good to see Meredith. She lives in California, so I only see her once or twice a year.
Macey decided she wanted to help open the presents! 
Seeing if there is anything in there she might want...HA! 
You can't even tell Meredith is 6 months pregnant!

Zoo Day

We decided to take Macey to the NC Zoo a couple of Friday's ago.
I didn't really take that many pictures, but here are a few that we got.
I loved being able to see the elephants so close!!! The NC Zoo is really big, so sometimes it is hard to see the animals if they are too far out. 
Pretty zebra! 
My pretty girl!!! I had more pictures of Macey, but for some reason they will not upload.
She was so good at the Zoo. She slept through the last half. I can't wait to take her back when she is a little older.

Randoms

I don't really have much to blog about this week but I am at work and I need/want something to do (beside work of course), so why not blog!
I love this picture of Macey and Christian!
I think she looks so cute in her little white jeans and plaid shirt.
-I signed up with Weight Watchers last Thursday and I've been trying hard to be good and count my points!
-We bought hardwood floors for our house and I can't wait for Christain to install them. Saying I'm excited would be an understatement.
-We are also putting a back splash up in our kitchen.
-I can't get over the fact Macey will be 9 months this Thursday.
See I told you I really have nothing exciting to blog about this week!

We're Back!!!

 We had a nice week long vacation at the beach, but it is nice to be back hom!!!
Here is my little Movie Star before the beach one morning! 
Every time we put the sunglasses on her she would sit still and "pose"! 
Her and her Daddy napping one afternoon!! 
This is where Macey took a lot of naps at on the beach!!! I would put the beach blanket and towel on a lounge chair and she would sleep so good there. Makes me think we need a sound machine. 
She loved the sand and water. She had no fear of any of it. She would crawl all around and straight to the ocean. She loved it when the waves would hit us. 
My girl on the fourth and she looks like such a big girl here...sniff, sniff. 
We sat out on the beach to watch the fireworks and she loved them. She didn't cry one time!
 
In the lazy river one day!!! (please excuse the awful picture of me)
This was Macey's first trip week long trip away from home and she did wonderful!!!
I have more family pictures to share later!!!

So Big!!

WARNING: There are a lot of pictures on this post, but I'm a proud Momma!
This past month it seems like Macey has started to act so "big girlish".
Busy crawling everywhere... 
Climbing on our coffee table every chance she gets... 
Pulling her self up in the crib... 
Playing with "Big Girl" toys... 
Acting like a big girl standing up... 
Smiling so big at us when we tell her "No Ma'am"... 
This is such a fun stage right now! 

I love my girl so much and wish time would slow down just a bit! I will be planning her 1st birthday party before I know it...
Oh and one note to myself that I remember Macey can now drink out of a straw!

Macey and Hannah

Hannah lives in our neighborhood and her and Macey are two weeks apart!
They are so cute together and they are getting so fun to watch them play together now that they are getting bigger! 
I'm sure these girls will have many more play dates together! 
Hannah hasn't starting crawling, so we were trying to get Macey to show her how...LOL!
