Happy Thanksgiving!

Well this is an exciting year for us, since we have our daughter. We are still in the can't believe it is real phase. She is with us and we are so thankful for that. As I sit here updating the blog Chad is getting her dressed in her first Thanksgiving outfit. We will post pictures later. The time has flown by and I have to go back to work next week. I know that things will be okay, but I am going to have a hard time leaving her at daycare and not getting to spend my day with her.

Two weeks ago my dad was here from Sacramento to meet his granddaughter. I would say that he enjoyed his time with us. I just wish that he did not live so far away. We had a great visit and really got to spend time with him.

Britton was born with a slight heart murmur so we are following up with a pediatric cardiologist. We had an appointment yesterday and things are going just fine. Her murmur is still in the very mild stages so they want to just monitor it. We will go back when she is 3 months old for another follow up. I really think that it is something that she will outgrow. The Dr. said for them to consider doing anything the murmur would have to double at the very least before it would be in the level for them to do any type of procedure.

On November 7th our oldest nephew was playing in the playoffs and got injured. He ended up in surgery that evening. He broke his fibula and tore some ligaments. He is doing well now, but just got to meet his cousin a week after his accident.

We want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. We hope that you get to spend time with your family and friends today. Here are some updated photos from the last few weeks.

Almost 3 weeks old

Well, I really can't believe that our daughter is almost 3 weeks old. My dad is here from Sacramento to meet little Miss Britton. We are doing pretty well. She still is having issues with her nights and days being backwards. My dad has seen her attitude and her sweetness. Chad took off today to play golf with both dads so I took advantage and took Britton to Portrait Innovations for 3 week pictures. I also wanted to make sure that my dad had some professional pictures to take home when he leaves Friday.

Here are a couple of pictures since we got home and when she met her other family members. We took her out to her great grandparents house on Halloween to meet the rest of the family. She was a real trooper and loved the attention, but what little girl would not love it. This Thanksgiving season I am very thankful for our family and for the blessing of this little girl in our lives. I am really enjoying being a mom and I know that Chad is so proud to be a dad.
