Happy 7 Month Birthday Sweet Baby Girl!!!

It's hard to believe that 1 year ago Michael & I were getting ready to head to Bethany Beach, Delaware for a family vacation. I was a few days short of 17 weeks pregnant with Morgan and feeling very big & nauseous. One year ago tomorrow I had my first OB appointment at
Naval Medical Center Portsmouth. We had so many dreams, hopes and prayers for how the pregnancy and birth would go and what it would be like to finally become parents. Though we had some hiccups along the way we are so very happy to finally be parents.

Now, here we are 1 year later with a beautiful 7 month sweet baby girl. No amount of reading or planning could have prepared us for this amazing and awesome experience. To say the least Michael and I feel so incredibly blessed. God has given us this wonderfully amazing little girl and we couldn't be more in love with her.

Two days ago I went into the nursery to get Morgan up from her nap in the afternoon. She wasn't crying just babbling away to herself. The following picture is what I found when I went into her room...

Our sweet little girl had learned to sit up all by herself and was playing away with her toys.

I got the biggest gummy grin from her when I walked in. I am pretty sure if she could have spoken she would have said, "Look at me Mommy! Look what I can do...all by MYSELF!".
I am so glad that Michael was home at the time. I called him to come quick and see what our little girl had done. We were so proud of her and she was so proud of herself.

Love the first pic of her, she has that "What? What did I do?" look on her face. She is a doll. Hope all are well!
