Spring Time is Here!

I wish I could be wittier or a little more entertaining, but I have to tell it like it is.... I am having the best time of my life. Joey and I are constantly in awe of being parents to such an amazing little girl. Caroline makes me smile even after work has gotten me down, and, as cliched as it sounds, makes everything worth it. She is all over the house at this point, there is no out of bounds. She loves the sound of her voice and her reflection in the mirror. A few rundowns of the last several months are below....

Dallas has seen record snow and of course, being the picture perfect moment, snapped away with Caroline in the middle of it all.

For Valentine's Day, I surprised Joey with some pictures of her in the biggest red tutu I could find :)

Recently, we took a vacation to go to a wedding in San Antonio and enjoyed some family time.

We spent some time on the Riverwalk....

We saw the Alamo.....

We relaxed by the pool....

And then there was the wedding.....

And I have to mention the weekend shopping trips to the Bishops Arts Districts with Oma, Aunts, Mommy, and Baby....

Hair Bows and Friends

We are truly lucky to have so many wonderful friends! It just happened that all of our friends multiplied at the same time and all of our kids are friends! Below are a few pictures of Caroline and her friends. Thanks to all of you for being so supportive and entertaining!

Caroline Meets Santa

Caroline is truly a happy baby. She is usually all smiles and just likes to take in the world around her. I thought this love for everyone might have its limits, meaning an old man with white facial hair and a red outfit A.K.A. Santa, but she took to him with smiles and wonder. The moment that we placed her on his lap, she had fun. She had some moments of awe, some of boredom, and some of pure joy. Below is her first encounter with Santa. I hope that everyone's x-mas was as Merry and Wonderful as ours!

I Stink!!!! Catch up Part 1

Ok, so I have beat my own record of taking forever to update the blog... I guess life has happened. By life I mean... thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, 4,5,6 month birthdays, 6 teeth, to name a few. Our first holiday season as a family was amazing. We hosted Thanksgiving at our house and fried a turkey worthy of the truest of cajuns. We then had 6 month pictures with Treva Tribit, the best photographer in the world :).... I am running to feed baby, but more to be uploaded shortly!

I love my family!

Real Food!!!!

The time has come and gone that will forever change our baby girl, Little Caroline has been introduced to food. I did a lot of research as to when babies are ready and what is a safe point to start introducing them to food, and all of the qualifications listed have been aced by Caroline. With her teeth she could have probably jumped straight to steak but cereal won out. I have heard about a lot of babies that did not like the cereal experience, but our little one smiled and opened her mouth wide :) We are all doing well and are looking forward to our holiday season with our family. Enjoy the pictures!

Caroline and I also took a road trip to the ranch for her first Opening weekend of hunting season! Of course she had to be properly dressed for the occasion :)
