Side Sleeper

Lately Chess has been trying to roll over, especially when she's falling asleep. I think she wants to sleep on her side. She arches her back and throws her arm over her body. She can't quite get her hips and legs to cooperate. It's so cute! She's getting so big and strong!

This is how she started out her nap-trying to get that upper body over.

This is how she woke up-almost all the way on her side!

Hooter Hider

I am very proud of my latest sewing project. Some of you moms out there may have heard of a "Hooter Hider." If you haven't heard of one, it is a stylish nursing cover that allows you to nurse your baby in public, stay modest, you can still see your baby, and she can't pull it off and expose you. These things cost $35 or more online or in boutiques, but I found a tutorial: I made mine in a few hours for under $10!

Here I am wearing my finished project!

The Sweetest Face Ever!

I love this shot and the look on Chess' face.

Jared put this little ball in her hand, and since her fingers stay in a fist almost all the time right now, she held onto it for awhile.

One Month Old!

Of course I had to do a one month old photo shoot with Chess! She is so sweet and so easy to take pictures of. Here are a few that I really like. I can't believe she is one month old already!

Week 4

I love this outfit.

Chess got all dressed up to go to Heather's bridal shower.

This is how Chess likes to fall asleep-bouncing on the bed with Daddy, with her head back, looking at the ceiling.

Jared has started reading Chess a story every night.

And last but not least...Chess has been smiling at me for about a week now, but this is the first one I caught with the camera! I'm so excited-she is so cute!
