Can You Feel the Love Tonight?

Many of you know that I have an unhealthy obsession with Elton John. Well, he and my second love, Billy Joel are going on tour this year. I found out last night that they are coming to St. Louis Mayb 14th-the day after my birthday. Happy Birthday to me! Tickets go on sale this Saturday, and they are selling out very quickly, so everyone pray that we get tickets! I'll let you know if we get them. I'm sure everyone will be waiting anxiously to find out!

Maya at One Month

Mommy at midnight wishing Maya would just go to sleep.
All tuckered out after a rough day of picture taking.

Maya looking cute as a bug getting ready to go to the doctor.

It's hard to believe that Maya is already one month old. I took her to the doctor today for her one month check up and here are her stats:

11 lbs. 7 oz.! 95th percentile
22 in. 90th percentile

I cannot even believe how big this girl is, but I was a rather chunky baby myself. I started out small, so it will be interesting to see how big she gets over the next few months. She had her other hepatitis shot today, and it was the saddest thing ever. She screamed bloody murder and it was all I could do to keep from crying myself. The doctor said that Maya is just perfect. She's a healthy girl, and we are so grateful for that. This past month has been so wonderful and we look forward to all the adventures we will have with this cute little girl. Here are some pics from the last couple of weeks. And of course I can't get the pictures in the right place.

Maya's Blessing

Today we blessed our little Maya bug. Nathan was surprisingly nervous, but he did a great job, and I was very proud of myself for keeping it together. Here are some pictures from the day.
Not the best family picture, but Maya was starting to freak out so this is the only one we wre able to take. You can't even see her little face.

Maya is proving to be just like mommy and isn't the most photogenic little thing. In this picture she's just not sure if she wants to be awake or asleep.
