Baby Diaper Cakes

I had wonderful baby showers for Haven this past fall. I was most impressed with the diaper cakes that were given to us. They were all so creative and filled with necessities. Jennifer L. Malone made this one. I love the green, polka dot ribbons.
Bonnie Bradley made this one for my fall themed shower. She used her cricut machine for the letters. So cute!
This cakes also had little socks and mittens stuck in the diapers around the bottom layer. I took them out to use them. This one was made by Joyce Smith.
This cake was made by my cousin Dana Bradham. It was beautiful with shoes, toys, and pacifiers around it as well. I took them off to use them too.

Cousin Jake

Jake has seen Haven a few times already, but the other day he asked to hold Baby Habey. He was very gentle, pointed out her nose and mouth, and got upset when he had to give her back. He is already such a sweet cousin and he is getting ready to be a great big brother in just a few weeks!

Here she grows again...

Haven is 6 weeks today or 38 weeks 2 days adjusted age. We had a little and I mean very little snow over night and this morning. You probably can't even see it in the picture, but we went out and put some mail in the mailbox so she could enjoy the snow.

She now weighs 6 pounds 3 ounces. Here is a picture of her in her first newborn outfit. The preemie clothes are getting a little short. She was having a sweet dream.

Here we are on her 1 month birthday. She is a sweetheart!

Dewing Our Best

Well, she's at 37 1/2 weeks now. Almost 0 years old, and we already feel like old pros. But seriously, not really. We're still figuring things out and getting used to this new life. We can definitely tell a difference in her little face. Since she's still a little early, she mostly just sleeps and eats every couple hours, and makes a bunch of grunting noises. If she ever cries it's only for 35 seconds at a time, max. So we're enjoying that for now. I'm sure once she hits her original due date, she'll come out of her shell and really let it fly. She's not too active just yet so we decided to pump her with 12 oz of caffiene every 6 hours, just to see some movement. Since we started that routine last week, it's been fun watching her jump rope, build fires, and do the perfect push-up (as seen on tv). She also kills at the "downward facing dog" from her Johnson & Johnson yoga dvd. Namaste Haven, very namaste.

Weight Check Appt.

Haven had her 2nd appointment today with her pediatrician for a weight check. She weighs 5 lbs! Everyone guessed she would weigh 4.5 lbs, except for Jeremy, he said 4lbs 12oz. The doctor was very happy and so are we!
