Maisey One Month Photos

Today we were able to get together with good friends of ours and take some "One Month" photos of Maisey. I figured that we would post some on here so that we can share the moment with our friends. We hope that you like the pics. If you are interested in our photographer, you can see some of his work at

You can also see the whole "One Month" set as well as some that we took while Kim was pregnant at

What a Week!

I'm not sure we'll ever have a dull moment again! Not only did Maisey turn a month old this week but, we got to experience her first diaper blowout while eating lunch with Allison and the boys, went to Maisey's first Diamondbacks game with Grandpa and Uncle Dustin, and learned that any spice in my diet is not ok with Miss Maisey (very bad day for Mommy).

1. All I can say is, "Growdy." Thanks Alli for helping me clean up her messy car seat! When it blows, nothing seems to survive; not even Mommy's pants.

2. So fun to see Maisey experience the sights and sounds of the ballpark as well as her proud Grandpa! I wish we'd gotten on video the first time she heard the crowd go wild...not impressed! :)

3. Oh spice, how I will miss you this next year

One Month Old

It's crazy but, Maisey is officially one month old. It doesn't seem like there's been that much time between her birth and now but at the same time it feels like she's always been a part of our family. Here are some of the many things I have learned this first month:
1. No one can describe how much you'll adore your children
2. Books do not hold all the answers but they're a great base line. Every child is different and it's a good thing you can learn as you go.

3. Third time's the charm! No one would have guessed based on the video of her first time swimming but, Maisey enjoyed her time in the pool July 4th!

4. Sleep is overrated (at least that's what I tell myself)

5. Schedule's are great but flexibility is a must (hard for planners like me)

6. It's amazing what you can clean with one hand

7. Great husbands are hard to find. So thankful for mine!

and last but not least....

8. Time goes so incredibly fast. I'm so afraid it's going too fast and I won't be able to hold onto these precious moments.

Happy one month my precious Maisey!
