Stella Times…Week 23

Dear Stella,

This has been an awesome week, full of lots of time with your grandparents that live in Minnesota! It was also the first time your Daddy has left you for a night, and he is actually gone for six whole days!! He misses you SO much.

It was your first time in the hot springs…
and first time rockin’ the Carhart hat your Great-Grandpa sent.

It was your first time hanging out with Daddy on the jobsite…

and your first time easily sitting alone (and with my Mother’s Day flowers and card!).

It was our first Mother’s Day as a family…

and your first fancy Mother’s Day brunch.

Your first time in a high chair…

and your first time obsessing over your Grandpa Elmo’s songs.

NanaMama Julie took a bunch of fun pictures of our family…

and you hung out a lot with her.

You were beautiful as always…

and loved hanging in the backyard with Nanamama and Grandpa.

We spent lots of time listening to Grandpa Elmo sing..

and walked to a delicious brunch on my day off.

We hung out with Nanamama…

and took walks with Grandpa.

We watched you eat your toes…

and show off your tummy time skills.

You loved your time with your grandparents….

You really, really did.

Love you forever and always,
Momma

  1. She is so cute!!! I love seeing all your milestones because we are right there, too. As soon as my job is over (Friday, yikes!) I may start posting more pics – I'm oddly paranoid about it now. Weird, i know!

  6. I am loving all of the photos this week!!! And what a wonderful week it sounds like it was. Lots of great firsts for Stella and so nice that she had that time with her grandparents! I think my favourites are her swimming, her sitting on her own and the close up of her adorable, squeezable cheeks!! And I love the one of the 3 of you with her big smile as well. Reminds me I need to get some new family photos of the 3 of us! Glad you had a nice week!! πŸ™‚

  16. I don't think I'll ever be able to put into words just what Stella Times does for me. It calms my nerves especially here couped up in this hotel room. It soothes me but most of all gives me so much hope! She is just the brightest, happiest, cutest little girl.
