Happy Father's Day!!!

We just want to take a minute to wish everyone a Happy Father's Day, especially our own dads who are wonderful father's, father-in-law's, and grandpa's! We love you both so much and hope your day is extra special.

Now....I have to wish my sweet husband and wonderful new father his first "Happy Father's Day!" I don't think anyone realizes how great he is with Daci. I swear I have never seen a cuter dad :) He plays with her, holds her, teases her, picks out her outfits and is so concerned with her feelings. She just loves her daddy and when she looks at him it is different than the way she looks at anyone else. Everytime he plays with her I fall more in love with him. Thanks Rick for being everything and more that I could have ever wanted in the father of my child! I love you!

Both of our dads...the new Grandpa's... are so wonderful with Daci, and Daci just ADORES them both! She is so at ease in their must be that they are so big and she just feels secure with them. I love this picture of my dad with Daci, they both fell asleep and I couldn't resist snapping a photo! Daci loves to play with my dad and she falls asleep easily in his arms because he is so nice and toasty warm :) This picture with Daci and Fred describes their relationship perfectly! If ever Daci is upset or fussy Fred just takes her in his arms, holds her close to his body, hums a little tune and walks around with her. She falls asleep almost instantly! If ever I don't know what to do with her I just pass her off to the Grandpas!

Rolling Over!!

Daci is rolling over!!! Well...sorta. Maybe I should say she is starting to roll over. There are quite a few conditions that have to be met before she can. She has to be on the bed and she has to start from her tummy. I can't believe how old she is getting!

This is a picture of her before she rolled over, just playing on her tummy on my bed.

Since Daci was born she has been a finger sucker but she couldn't quite figure out the thumb sucking thing. Some people may think I'm crazy but I really wanted her to find her thumb! Its so much easier for her to soothe herself with her thumb than it is for me to get up and put the binkie back in when it falls out. This week Daci finally figured out the thumb sucking thing and I have loved it! She is still a little bit uncoordinated with it but it is so cute to watch her! I just love this little munchkin :)

Sending you Smiles!

Our little Daci is growing up so fast! We are loving the stage that she is in right now (15 weeks). She has been all smiles lately and I know she wants to share them with you! Rick and I love this silly closed mouth grin... her chubby cheeks are to die for and I love them drool all over her chin :)

This is her huge, gummy, open-mouthed grin. This one is so fun to get! A little giggle usually accompanies this one :)

I love it when Daci first wakes up. She starts yelling and squawking for you to come get her and then once you walk in the room you get this huge grin.
