1 Month Old!

Can you believe that little Britta is already one month old!?!?! Amazing how fast a month can go by!

Hanging out with Mommy (trying to burp! She's a tough one to burp!)

Hanging out by the pool.... She dressed up to go see her Aunt Kelly...

Britta's Room

Since we didn't know whether we were having a boy or a girl, we weren't able to decorate until recently!! We had fun picking out things to decorate Britta's room.

Grandma and Grandpa Schmidt

"Whew! I'm all worn out from my weekend of fun with my Grandma and Grandpa from Iowa! I'm so glad they could come to visit!"
I love my Grandma!

Babies Galore!

Lots of our friends have had babies lately so we've had lots of visits from the little ones! It's been great to see all of the babies together!

The Many Faces of Britta

Is that a hint of a smile I see?

Look mom! I can hold in my pacifier on my own!

Seriously- no more pictures!

Catching flies in her mouth...

Happy Baby

The sign of a happy baby is a very full tummy. So here is a very full and happy little Britta!

The following video has nothing to do with Britta- But I just had to post it.

The other day, my brother Korey brought me lunch and with it, he brought himself some chocolate milk. If you never want to drink chocolate milk again, watch the following video! (Well, you should really watch it anyway but beware because it is SO UNBELIEVABLEY GROSS!)

I'm so sorry you had to experience that Korey (especially because you found out the hard way that the milk had chunks in it!)

Family Time

It's been special to share Britta's birth with our family and friends! Here are some family pics!

Grandma and Grandpa Schmidt
Great Aunt Jill
Great Uncle Jeff Grandma and Grandpa Leafblad and Cousin Mariana. Mari loves to say "baby" and "Britta" now. Britta sounds more like "Bi-TAH"
Great Aunt Barbara and Great Uncle Dan!
Uncle Korey (He was the second person to hold Britta besides Grandma Leafblad)
Aunt Kelly and Cousin Mari. This was Britta's first outing from our house.

Happy Mother's Day

This is what I do all day :) Hang out with Britta and have "Girl Time."
I just look at her cute face all day!
Bath Time! Britta is getting better with baths- she is almost starting to enjoy them!

For Mother's Day the dads took the moms in our family to Q. Cumbers- a yummy buffet for brunch. Then it was family picture time!

The Explosion

How could someone SO CUTE....

... produce something SO NASTY??
This was what I spent my afternoon dealing with. It's been an exciting day around here! She's been much happier ever since the "incident."

Here's Looking at You Kid!

10 days old and Britta is already trying to hold up her head on her own! She loves to look up at our faces when she's facing us! I know she can't see very far right now, but it really looks like she's looking right into your eyes.... It's precious!

Little Successes

We've had lots of little successes lately with Britta... including...
*Our first Doctor's apppointment- at which she told us that Britta weighs 7 lbs 4 oz (she was 6 lbs 12 oz. when she was born!), so she's eating like a champ!
*Sleeping like a little angel throughout the night-I was having to wake HER UP to eat! She sleeps so well!

*Finding her thumb-She has only done this one time, but it was sure funny the way she had it shoved in her mouth!

*Letting me dress her up like a little doll-She lets me put hats, mittens, and bows on her!

*Her first ride in the carseat-Check out her hands... She is still a little tense when it comes to riding in the car seat!

*Her very first blow out... Her parents handled it well! Let's just stay I'll be sticking to Pampers as our diaper of choice (she was wearing Huggies at the time!)

*Her very first photo shoot with our friends Dana and Ryan (their camera is much nicer than ours!)
