Selah's Dad is just amazing

Rob has been such a great husband/dad today.  Not that he's not great everyday! But I have a minute to rave about today. :)

After lunch, he assembled a new coat rack.  Folded the laundry AND put it away.  Went to the grocery store.  Took care of Selah while I napped (I slept for almost 2 hours!).  And now he's calming Selah down for bedtime, while I eat dinner and watch the AFC championship game.

I love hearing him sing to Selah over the monitor.  It's so great how she responds to his singing.  He took her up when she was screaming (Bad mommy misreading her tired cues) and when I went to turn on the monitor, Rob was singing and she had stopped crying.  Warms my heart!

So very, very thankful that God blessed me with such an amazing and compassionate man.

Reformation Sunday

I'm a tad late on this post, but I still wanted to share the pictures!  After church on Reformation Sunday, we went out with mom and dad to the red barn farm one saturday.  Love this girl!!  (I also included a cute picture of her costume...note the tail feather!)

(apologies for the sideways pictures.  My pictures wouldn't let me rotate them!  so you'll have to rotate your head, I guess.)

Last nice day?

Selah and I took advantage of the beautiful afternoon and played outside. Rob joined us when he got home from work. What a gorgeous evening with my family!

A Fall Walk

I seem to go longer and longer between posts.  Woops!

Selah is six months old.  We went for a walk this afternoon, and had fun with the fall colors.  Selah was so happy!

July 4th, and slumber parties

Long time no pictures!  I finally have a minute with both hands and feel like posting. 

We spent Selah's first 4th of July at Barb and Rhett's.  Selah experienced the swimming pool for the first time!  She really enjoyed it.  Thanks, Barb, for dragging out the baby pool and carting up buckets of hot water so her first experience would be enjoyable!  Selah is sporting a blue ruffled swimsuit from Aunt Kristin, along with coordinated sun hat.

hello grandma h!

 We are currently under construction. In addition to adding two extra feet to our house (haha!) we have hired a contractor to replace the carpet in the hall and steps with hardwood.  The project is taking longer than expected.  With all the dust in the air, Selah's nasal passages have been irritated.  Poor girl is having problems breathing!!!  The past 3 nights have been spent at grandparents overton and hambleton houses.  They sure do love spending time with their granddaughter!
