Week of firsts!

Today marks our 2 week anniversary of having Poppy home and the changes we have seen in the past couple of days are soooo exciting! Our week has been full of "firsts" for Poppy. Her first visit to the zoo, first walk in her stroller, first time letting daddy carry her in the baby carrier, first time in the pool, the list goes on and on. She is going to Marc a lot more often and he was even able to give her a bottle this morning. We've had quite a few visitors these past couple of days, and at first she is still extremely shy, but lately she's been warming up to a few of our family and friends. Each day is filled with exciting surprises around here!


These 2 do this all day long, and then Poppy usually opens her mouth and bends down to give Lola a big kiss on the lips. Lovely.


I just had to get a picture of this dress - it's one of my favorites, but it was a little snug, so I doubt she'll wear it again.


Playing peek-a-boo from behind a cushion.


Our first attempt at pig-tails.


Making pizza with daddy!


First time in the carrier on dad's back. She fell asleep by the time we got home from our walk.


Playing with dirt. (and as soon as I snapped this picture, that hand full of dirt went into her mouth. Mmmm.)


Our little bathing beauty.


Poppy's first trip to the zoo! The only animal she really cared about was this goat.

Poppy's first ice-cream cone!


Needless to say, the girl loves ice-cream.


First visit from Aunt Courtney!


Party on the porch!


Poppy leaning to almost give Claire a kiss!


My sweet girl.


Daddy's girl!

I can't believe it has been two weeks. She is really coming into her own now. I am looking forward to seeing her again!

I love reading these updates! I love to see how she is progressing. By these pic's she definitely does not seem shy.. And, again, holy wardrobe. If I have a girl that will be ideal..so she can borrow all these wonderful ensembles!
