Today Lael took her first nap in her nursery crib! Most days I've just put her on our bed for her naps, but since I'm trying to get her on more of a schedule I decided that maybe it was time to put her in her own room...sniffle, sniffle. :( This momma isn't even close to putting her in the nursery for the night time though! She sleeps so well in her pack 'n play bassinet, and it's so easy to just step out of bed and get her when it's time for feedings.
Here's my sweet girl all ready for a good nap!
Lael went on her very first plane ride this past Saturday, and was such a trooper! GramPatti and I decided we wanted to fly to Orlando to see my Aunt Nancy, Uncle Robb, and cousins Annalee and Brady since they didn't get to see Lael at Christmas. Aunt Nancy was more than willing to fly up to see us, but we wanted to take the opportunity to be in warm, sunny Florida! The weather was beautiful!
Here's GramPatti right after we found out that we would have to sit in the Greenville airport for about six hours because our plane had a malfunction! Fun! Trey had already dropped us off and was on his way to Charlotte for a meeting, so we had no choice but to just sweat it out. GramPatti, of course was thankful to have the baby girl all to herself for the day. :)
Here we are in sunny Florida with Aunt Nancy!

What a gift the past two months have been and what a gift her life is to her Daddy and me!
"Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from Him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates."

Our New Year started off wonderfully with family and good friends! We spent the weekend in Lexington at my parents' house.
New Year's Day was spent with my mom's side of the family where we celebrated Christmas and did our annual white elephant gift exchange!
Mary Katherine meets her cousin, Lael for the first time!
I love this sweet picture. We were missing Aunt Nancy and the rest of the Chapin clan! :(
Uncle Burke with Lael
Lael meets Katie for the first time! They are birthday buddies--exactly 30 years apart in age!
Momma got just what she wanted--a neck slimmer! Ha!
A dog snuggy for Elizabeth!

Bryan with his deer call??
On Sunday we made a last minute trip down I-26 (before 385 closed!) to see Caleb, Julie, and Jude! He was born December 10, and we just had to let our little cuties meet in person. Can you believe he has more hair than Lael?!
