Serious Cuteness

I mean, really? Are you not melting into a big puddle right now? We've been trying to catch her in a smile for weeks, and yesterday, John JUST managed to get one of her with my cell phone. I am IN LOVE with this little girl. I just know that this little face will NEVER do anything wrong. She will always be sweet and respectful, and I'm sure we'll never fight about anything, right?


So last week, we had a couple of firsts: Ally Grace had her very first shopping trip. A girl's gotta learn early! And mommy had her very first nursing in public experience. And by public, I mean in the ladies lounge in Macy's, wearing a Hooter Hider. But still. I felt pretty hardcore. A lady approached me and asked me about my nursing cover, saying that she needed to get one for her daughter (who just had a baby). I told her to google Hooter Hider, and she could probably find one that way.

I also told her I am not to be held responsible for anything else she might find when googling Hooter Hiders.

Ally Grace hit 8 weeks old on Thursday! I can't believe that it's been 8 weeks already. (I also can't believe she was ever curled up inside my belly. It seems like a weird and slightly horrifying fairy tale).

Anyway, she's getting so big! We've gotten to watch little chins (yes, chins) and fat rolls pop up, which is so adorable. At her last pediatrician appointment, she weighed 9lbs and 5oz, so I'm excited to see what she weighs when we go to her 2 month appointment today.

I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats. Or not.

I'll leave you with a couple of photos from the last week or two....enjoy!

Look at this little adorable is this outfit? Her face is telling me that she may or may not completely love it.

I think she's starting to feel a little sassier here. But who wouldn't feel super sassy in paw print booties? Or maybe she's just about to cry. I can already envision the fights we'll have about her outfits. On a side note, I am totally the type of mom who can't wait to say "Because I said so."

Um, why is she already as tall as we are?

Her "Jim Halpert face."

Have a great Monday!
