Can't resist the owl!

I was in the sorority Chi Omega when I was in college! I LOVED it and have so many wonderful memories and friends from that time! The owl was our "mascot" and anytime I see anything with an owl for Morgan I have to get it!! I found this adorable onesie at a little shop in downtown Grapevine. Soooo cute! She also has some adorable owl PJ's from Gap that I bought for this winter (if any of my fellow Chi-O sisters are interested here is a link to buy them )!!

I took these pictures of her this morning while singing "Chi Omega Yours Forever" to her!! (I think its her new favorite song!!)

4 months!

4 months old! I can't believe its already been another month! Morgan is our little princess and continues to make us smile all the time. Her smile and laugh are infectious and when she smiles her whole face lights up!!! She's really playing with toys now and getting such a personality! Unfortunately, she's very of my worst character traits to inherit! But all in all, she is just plain wonderful!!! We tried rice cereal last night and she wasn't a big fan, but we'll keep trying!

Her 4 month stats:
Weight: 14lbs 12oz---------75th-90th percentile
Height: 24.3 inches---------75th percentile

At least somone likes my singing!

Yep, that's right...I have one major fan....MORGAN! I think we could say she's the president of my singing fan club! She loves for me to sing to her. I have sang songs to her since the day she was born. We sing while she takes a bath, we sing while we play, we sing all the time. We sing baby songs, church songs, silly mommy-made-this-up songs. Lately, she has gotten into throwing fits occasionally, especially when she is done riding in her car seat, but the one thing that makes her stop and start smiling again is me singing to her. Let's just say I have never been told I sing well, but now poor Josh has to hear me sing off key all day long! I actually sang the entire way from church to home today, just to keep her happy...O the things we do! It doesn't work when Josh sings to her, just mommy!

I have to admit though, it makes me happy that I make her happy!

Bows....they are just our thing!

So you all know very well by now that my daughter wears a bow pretty much all the time. No, I don't put them on her when we are just at home or when she is with my grandmother during the day while I'm at work, but if we are going somewhere....she wears a bow. There are 2 reasons for this...#1 I LIKE THEM & I THINK THEY ARE CUTE! #2 People will know she is a girl.

The one day I didn't have a bow on her someone told me she looks like a boy because she is so big. Ugh, did you not notice the hot pink polka dot outfit she was wearing?

I get annoyed by so many people telling me that she doesn't need to wear a bow. Yesterday the lady taking her pics said "I just don't get the whole bow thing". At church, the lady in the nursery takes her bow off and puts it in the diaper bag as soon as I drop her off. She says "bows are my pet peeve".....Well, you taking her bow off is my pet peeve. Anyway, I like them. We have LOTS of them. And she is going to keep wearing them! They are fun and I think she looks precious!

More 3 month pics!

So here are the pics of Morgan we had taken this weekend. Just a little fun at the local Picture People Studio. I was bummed that she wouldn't give us her big cheesy full-face smile for these pictues. I was acting like a crazy idiot, singing and making silly noises and she just wouldn't do it. As soon as the camera was off, she was back to her smiley self---of course! But....they are still great pics of her!

3 months!

Morgan turned 3 months last Wednesday! WOW.....I can't believe how big she looks in these pictures! She is doing really great. Right now she is starting to really like sitting in her Bumbo and playing in her Baby Einstein exersaucer. She is sleeping from 8:30pm to 6:30am!!

She loves to hear herself make noises and smiles at pretty much anything!! She also LOVES to sing!! We sing all kinds of silly songs and she loves it!!! She's been occasionally laughing out loud for several weeks now, but she saves those laughs up and only lets them out when something is really funny!!

I love watching her explore, study things and play! She is starting to actually reach for toys now! So fun!!
