A little bit of this and that...

Things in the Lyon house have been pretty calm lately so nothing has jumped out at me as being Blog-worthy but I still wanted to take a minute to update everyone...even if it does bore you to tears.

Maggie is growing like a little weed. She will be 6 weeks old tomorrow and time has just flown by. She is a really good eater and is starting to speed up on her feedings which I really appreciate. She isn't sleeping through the night yet but her sleep times are stretching out really nicely. We have had a few 5-6 hour stretches. She made he first trip to Daytona to see MamMam and Great Susan (my Aunt Susan) a couple of weeks ago while Will was out of town for work. Will and I took her to church for the first time last week and she was a hit. Maggie did fairly well but she and I did spend half the service in the nursery getting a diaper change and eating. I think she and I might wait until she's ready to go to the nursery by herself before we go back.

As for what is coming up, we have a busy month and a half ahead of us. My sister, Adrienne, is getting married in a month so we have lots of events surrounding the wedding to participate in. Next weekend Will, Maggie and I are making the trip to Charlotte for a couples shower. It will be Maggie's first trip to her Essie and Pop's house and it will also be the first time I leave her with a baby-sitter. I'm not looking forward to that last part. She just seems so little for that. After we get back from Charlotte it will be time for Thanksgiving and then back to Charlotte a couple more times for more wedding festivities and then Christmas!!! We should have lots to blog about then. In the mean time, here are a few pictures of Maggie that I will leave you with.

The Sweetest Thing...

Look what I caught Maggie and her daddy doing the other day...

It only lasted a few minutes but that was long enough for me to take their picture.

1 Month

We made it through our first month! Maggie is 1 month old today and she is doing great! Her favorite things to do are eat, sleep and go for walks in her stroller. She's not sleeping through the night but she is stretching out her sleep a bit. We usually get a good 4 hour stretch at night. She and I are still trying to get ourselves into somewhat of a routine but I know it'll take a little time. Will and I couldn't have asked for a better baby.
