Happy Birthday!!

Happy 1-month birthday to you, happy 1-month birthday to you, happy 1-month birthday dear Josie, happy 1-month birthday to you!

We celebrated Josie's 1-month birthday on November 15th. Can hardly believe she's now a month old! Our little girl is growing up! And yes, that is our Christmas tree up in the background because we are "those kind of people". :-)

Not gonna lie, the Dean and Deluca raspberry chocolate truffle cupcake was to die for!

And of course, no celebration is complete without a larger than her head flower. :-)

Scrub a Dub

Josie hated us during her first bath. She hated us just a tiny bit less during her second bath and she only moderately disliked us during her third bath. But tonight, following her fourth bath, Josie actually seemed to enjoy soaking in the warm, soapy water. No tears! Well, until the end when we took her out. But overall, turns out that Mommy and Daddy are starting to get the hang of this bath time thing!

On the eve of her 4-week birthday, we are saying good-bye to Josie's newborn clothes. I can't believe it, our little one is getting so big! So...good-bye to the teeny tiny onsies that are just a smidgen bigger than a barbie doll and hello to size 0-3 month-old!! I didn't think I could grow attached to her ity bity clothes, but I have. If anyone knows me at all, you know I'm a of course each of these tiny newborn clothes are going to be preserved and kept forever!! :-)

Big Brother

Big brother Wrigley was very excited to sport his "big brother" bandana, creatively designed by Auntie Rachel. Wrigley has been a big help around the house since we brought Josie home. He's become a master of changing diapers and wrapping Josie up in the swaddle. He even gets up for midnight feedings. He is also the perfect guard dog. He's staying close to Josie in this picture in case her binkie falls out. He is always ready to put it back in before she starts crying. I don't know what Todd and I would do as first time parents without the extra help of big brother Wrigley.

Josie's 3 week birthday marked two mini-milestones for us at the Heitshusen household: Josie took a binkie for the first time AND Todd gave her her first bottle. I have never felt so much freedom! So because of this...

And this...

I got to do this...


And this...

If you're curious, I'm reading Twilight in these pictures (the fourth book in the saga). But in all honesty, I was so excited that she was quiet taking her binkie AND I was very excited to get a break from feeding, that I was really too hyper to read. I read about three pages and was done. I guess it's the thought that counts!

Happy Halloween!

I was so excited to have Josie dress up for Halloween; however, they don't make too many Halloween costumes to fit a two-week old. Oh well, there's always next year!

Josie loved Halloween so much, she slept right through it! :-)
