Just a quick update...

Lilly is slowly learning to play in her toy that Grams is letting us barrow. She does not like to be left in it alone, but if I am where she can see me she will play for awhile.

Dad and Lilly. Where do you think Lilly got all of her good looks? Daddy has some strong genes. I think Lilly may have my lips, but not a whole lot more.

My friend Mendy and I visited my best friend Shelly to meet her sweet little girl, Piper Reese. Shelly is an amazing Mom and looks like she never had a child. Piper is 2 1/2 weeks old and Lilly is 15 weeks. They are sure to be good friends. We had a lot of fun. Thank you Mendy for driving down to Texas with me.

Lilly with her friend Piper! She is so glad she finally arrived to play. Lilly went all the way to Tyler, TX to welcome her into the world.

Lilly's first OSU Baseball game. My friend Amanda is holding Lilly and I am holding Amanda's son Cason. This is Lilly's first friend...they were in the hospital together. The OSU outfit Lilly is wearing is the first outfit I purchased when I found out I was pregnant. I did not know if we would have a boy or a girl, but I knew we would have an OSU fan!

We are so excited to be living near our Auntie Devan! Devan came over for dinner the other night and held Lilly while I tried to get a few things done around the house. It is very hard to move with a 3 month old!

Here is Lilly's Nana and Granddad with their 8 grandchildren in Arapaho for Mother's Day weekend. Lilly is the brown headed one.

Rusty took us to Deep Fork Grill for Mother's Day. It was a lot of fun...until Lilly had a major diaper blowout and we had to change her whole outfit. It is hard to change a diaper in a bathroom without a changing table! We enjoyed the wonderful food and atmosphere.

Grams came to visit and brought Lilly her first bathing suite. She looks so cute! We can't wait to get in the pool this summer.

Below is our friend Josh Fuller from Michigan. We were so excited that Josh was able to come and meet Lilly for the first time.

Congratulations Rusty

Rusty is finished with his Masters! We just celebrated his graduation tonight. Lilly and I had a good time at his commencement ceremony. Lilly is very proud of her Daddy and looks forward to him going to work!haha Actually, she will miss having him around the house during the afternoon. It has been fun having him home so much after Lilly was born. It has been a special time. Now we are packing up our home and moving to OKC for Rusty to start his new job in June. It has been fun living in Stillwater and we will miss are Church Family and friends.

Friends, Family, Work ....Busy Times!

This is Lilly's friend Hudson who came to play a couple of weeks ago. He is so cute and a lot of fun. We loved having him and his Mom over and will really miss them when we move.

Here is Lilly's friend Lauren. Lauren is my friend Kristen's little girl who is about 8 months old. It has been fun watching her grow while we have been in Stillwater. Thanks for coming over to play with us.

Last weekend Lilly and I went to my parents house to visit with my Grandma Bennett and my cousins Melveta and Ronnie from Texas. This picture is of my Grandma, Melveta and My Mother. Lilly also slept through the night for the first time last Sunday while we were there! I could not believe it. She has slept through the night one other time this week since then and I can not tell you how nice it feels to get a full 6 or 7 hours of sleep! Go Lilly, keep up the good work!

Well, I went to work this week for the first time in 3 months. It was hard to leave Lilly at home, but she was in good hands with her Grams, Nana, and Rusty. They all took turns taking care of her while I was at work. This picture is of my co-workers and friends Tiffany, Erin and Shelby. They love little Lillian and will have to come visit us when we move.

I can say that going back to work for one week is a blessing of Thankfulness. It gives me such a thankful heart that my sweet husband is allowing me to stay at home. I did not even have to really get Lilly ready in the mornings and take her anywhere and it was a lot of work. Also, while I was at work Lilly rolled over from her tummy to her back twice for her Daddy. My little girl is growing up! I made her do it when I got home so I could see for myself.

I really enjoyed being an Admissions Counselor for Oklahoma State University. I had great girls to work with and I loved seeing students choose to continue their education at OSU! It is such a special place. But, I am ready for my new career as a Mommy! I have a lot of on the job training to do.
