Weeks 5 - 7 with Adelyne

It suddenly hit me this week that my little one is growing and changing everyday. I got the sudden urge to document EVERYTHING! After all, She will only be seven weeks old once and I don't want to forget these special times. So since I haven't been very diligent about that, here's what little miss Addy has been up to these past three weeks in photos....

Watching the Masters with Grandma Marie

Sleepin'. This is typical Addy; one hand out of the swaddle, a little drool and her paci tucked safely under her cheek

Hanging out on the Boppy

Posing for Mom

She's just too cute!

 Lounging "Under the Sea"

 "Look how far I can lift up my head!"

 She has reached a really fun stage where she smiles and coos during play time

 Ready to go to church on Easter morning, it was a bit chilly

Showing off her first Easter outfit

Our attempt at a family photo

Laughing at Grandma

And finally a video of Addy with the hiccups at 5 weeks. The lighting is awful but she is super cute.

It's Official!

It's official! Matt is now licensed to practice law in the state of New Mexico.

We drove up to Santa Fe yesterday for his swearing in. He was motioned in by my cousin who has been an attorney for a couple of years. After each prospective attorney was named, they all stood and said "I do" to the oath. Then, the members of the New Mexico Supreme Court gave some words.

Each new lawyer got to sign the "Roll of Attorneys", which goes back to the 1800's.

Mr. and Mrs. Esquire

After the ceremony, we celebrated with lunch at the Shed. There was much to be celebrated that day!

Addy is a Month Old!

Our sweet baby girl turned a month today

A day after her little cousin, Carter Grey Wingerd was born. Unfortuneately, I don't have photos, but we are so excited he's here

This past month has, of course, gone by quickly

Our lives have changed dramatically but we wouldn't have it any other way

She has us wrapped around her little finger

It's a little surreal that we are now a family of three but hard to imagine life without her
She loves to snuggle on Mommy's shoulder and watch golf with Daddy

Her facial expressions are priceless and keep us laughing

We are looking forward to many more wonderful months spent with our sweet girl!


Allow me to introduce you to my husband, the Esquire.

 Matthew Adam Danner, Attorney at Law.

That's right ladies and gentlemen, Matt passed the Bar!!!!

We found out yesterday just as we were about to eat lunch. I had just put Addy down as Matt ran in and said those two words I had been dying to hear, "I passed!"

We celebrated with grilled cheese, tomato soup, chips, a bottle of champagne and maybe a few tears of joy.

Thanks to everyone who prayed and offered words of encouragement as Matt spent two months studying and another month waiting for results. God is so good to us!

Over the River and Through the Woods

My Mom celebrated her birthday last week so we took the opportunity to get out of the house, get some help from the grandparents and surprise my Mom for her birthday. Off to Grandma's house we went!

Ready to hit the road to Grandma's house. Her legs look so funny in this photo.

Addy did great on the 3 hour car ride down to the LC. She loves her car seat and falls asleep as soon as we start moving. We did have to stop to feed her at a rest stop about 30 minutes outside of town but that was because of poor planning on our part.

How sweet is this? Snuggling with Uncle Perry in her new PJ's

Besides going out for my Mom's birthday dinner and going to church, we were able to relax and spend some quality time with my family.

Hanging out with Mamaw, Addy's Great Grandma

Spread out on Mamaw's lap

You know your relaxed when you fall asleep with your hand out like that

Sweet Miss Julie came to visit

4 Generations: Great Grandma, Grandma, Mom and Addy

Hanging out with the Chief

Such long legs!

Addy loves to hang out in the mornings by a window where it's nice and bright. She is playful and alert for almost two hours before she falls asleep again. I love these precious times.

She loves hanging out with Uncle Perry but was so bummed that Aunt Nic had to study all weekend

The best sleep is in Grandma's arms

What a little sleepyhead
