Happy Memorial Day!

This weekend was a whirlwind and we are still trying to catch up on rest! We went to my parents house Sunday after church to spend the day and night with them. Landry got in the pool for the first time. My parents got her a little float that looks like a boat, and she loved it! We had a great time!

Our New Favorite Activity

The new popular thing in the Smith house is the Exersaucer. We tried it out for the first time the other night, and she loved it! She loves standing on our laps, so I knew she would like it. She sits in it every night while mommy cooks dinner.

She fell asleep in it the other day!

Splish, Splash I was Takin a Bath!

Bath time has become one of our favorite parts of the day. She can be in the crankiest of moods, and then you set her in the water and she almost immediately mellows out. I think it is soothing for her. She smiles almost the entire bath. A girl after my own heart! Here are some pics I took the other night.

Angel loves to sit in there and help!

Play Ball

Last night we went to Landry's first Rangers Game! We went with the Thomas's and it was Austins first game as well. The kids did really good. They were asleep for about half and awake the other half. Landry is such a people watcher, so this game did not disappoint her. The Rangers pulled out a win and it was a great game. We got a little worried when they hit the home runs because of the fire works, but the kids were not fazed at all. They just slept right through them.

Let's go, we're ready!

Austin loves to people watch too!

This is Ken Griffey Jr.

Happy First Mothers Day to Me!

Today was a special day for me. I celebrated my first mothers day. I am so thankful to be a mom and celebrating today made me appreciate all God has given me. Since Tim and I would be celebrating with our moms today, he did my mothers day last night. He cooked me a really good dinner and got me the cutest card from Landry. I am so lucky to have a husband who knows how important being a mother is to me and only wants to make me happy.

This was the card Landry got me. It is so sweet, I will keep it forever.

3 Months Old

Today Landry turns 3 months. I know I say it every month, but having a baby makes the time fly! She is really starting to get a personality. Here are the 5 things we have discovered about her this month:

1. She giggled for the first time the other day. I went to pick her up from Jenn's house and when I got down on the floor to kiss her, she gave me a loud giggle! It just warms my heart.

2. She is finally starting to look somewhat like me. From day one, all I have heard is how much she favors Tim, but now people are starting to tell me that she favors me. Not that I mind her looking like her daddy, but it's nice to know I had a hand in making her! I did carry her for 9 months after all!

3. She is finally starting to sleep through the night more often. We can go about 6 good hours. 6 is better than 2 though!

4. She loves bath time. In fact, I'm working on a post of her bath times. She loves sitting in the water and getting the wash rag on her with soap.

5. She is so observant. She can sit and stare at something for a while. She is really starting to focus on you talking and watching people walk by.

Happy Birthday Aunt Stephie!

Landry wants to wish her Aunt Stephie a Happy Birthday! I love you and I can't wait to play with you again! Thank you for taking such good care of me on Tuesday.
