12 days...

...Since my last post. I thought with being out of school I would be better at updating.. obviously not!

So many things have happened!

I celebrated my first mothers day . The day was spent cuddling on the couch, watching Harry Potter movies, and Colin making dinner. It may not have been considered much by others, but it was absolutely perfect..

We announced our engagement...finally... We have techically been engaged since December. I dont know why we dont just tell people when things happen.. It must be our style or something. But yes, we are planning a wedding for September 2013, and I am so excited and already in planning mode.

Rowen went swimming for the first time. It was so much fun and Rowen did so good. I was terrified that she was going to freak out when we got in the pool but she didnt. She loved it and was very upset when we took her out. Hopefully we will go again this weekend :)

I started a new job. I work 20 hours in my old office, and 20 hours upstairs in a new office. Its not the most exciting, but it pays the bills. I have had nothing to do the past week, so I have been wedding planning :). Maybe I will start writing my blogs instead of wasting time haha.

We are still in the process of unpacking... I dont know if we will ever finish.. nor do I really care haha.

When I get off I would much rather spend time with my family than unpacking... Monday is a holiday, maybe I will get something productive accomplished. But probably not.

Colin and I went on a date :) We went to watch the Avengers. It was awesome. Thanks again to Sarah for babysitting! I am still planning on baking you cookies :)

 This is what I wake up to most mornings... How Rowen is a morning person, I do not know, but this sure does make it easier to get up :)

I love these two so so much <3

I am also in the process of typing my first, actual post for my other blog! So keep an eye out for that :)

4 Month Stats

Hey guys!
This is going to be a short post. Just wanted to give an update from Rowens appointment yesterday!

At 4 months, she is 13lbs 4oz, 25in long and has a 16in head circumference! My baby has doubled in size!

Her pediatrician gave us the go ahead to start her on solids. We tried some sweet potatoes, but she didnt seem to interested in them. Thats ok, we will wait a month or 2 :)

She also got shots yesterday, so she has been a crabby monster, but I did manage to get some snuggles out of her this morning :)

On another note, I will be starting a new blog! I have learned so much from my mom group about how to be save money, stretch your budget further, and even be more environmentally friendly. I want to share all of the info I have with everyone, but dont want to take away from this blog. This blog is about Rowen, which is why I chose to start a new one :) Here is the link for anyone interested :)

Its Monday!

And as promised, here is a new blog post!

I know its been a month since my last actual blog. Sorry! Things have been crazy. I have had school projects, work, and house hunting. Thank goodness all of that is about to die down after this week. Finals will be over on Thursday!

As some of you know, we found somewhere to live! Hooray! We actually moved back into our old apartment.. yes the exact same one as we lived in a year ago. You know that feeling you get when you just know you are home? That's the way I felt when we walked in after getting our keys. It was empty, but somehow, I still felt more at home than I have the entire past year. I love it here. This was mine and Colin's first apartment together that we had all to ourselves. The year we spent here was one of the best of my life. I was so upset, I cried the entire time we were moving our stuff out last summer. I am so glad that I stumbled upon the ad about it being for rent again, and I am so excited that Rowen gets to spend the first year of her life in a place that has so many wonderful memories and means so much to me.
We are a little cramped, since it is a one bedroom, but it is so worth it, both emotionally and financially :)

Rowen is 4 months old. When on earth did that happen?! She manages to melt our hearts a little more everday. She absolutely loves watching Top Gear (British version) and the Muppets, sitting in her Bumbo, and the dogs. She talks ALL.THE.TIME. She sings and giggles. She is such an awesome little girl!

She rolled over for this month. That was awesome! And she had her first bubble bath :)
She is growing so fast, it kills me. But it is so cool to see her advance and meet milestones.

I just have to show off my VERY FIRST MOTHERS DAY present :) We did a gift exchange in my mommy group, and this is what I got. I am absolutely in love with it :)


This is the
one and only time that Rowen has let me put a bow in her hair :)

Rowen has her 4 month appointment on Friday :) I will update after!
