The Rocking Chair

We spent Friday night and all day Saturday at Grandma & Grandpa Rossman's house. Imagine our surprise when after we played "pass the baby", Grandma Shelli brought out a childrens rocking chair that she had painted just for Sierra! As you can see from the photos it's beautiful! Inspired by the color scheme for Sierra's room and painted with love and artistry we are thrilled to have it as a family treasure :)

Falls Church Fireworks...Sierra naps like a champ!

Today Uncle Howie and I took Sierra to her very first July 4th fireworks! We tried to stay pretty far back (i.e. the deluxe and elegant Giant parking lot) so that we could see them & hear them but avoid the concussive feeling you get in your chest (which I love...). Despite the fact that Sierra will stir and make cute little wookie noises when I tiptoe past her at 3am, she slept well throughout the fireworks display. Except when held aloft for photo ops :)

We also had fun daytime visits from Uncle Steve and Aunt Debbie & Brian and Nicole!

3 years and going strong!

Today is our 3rd Wedding Anniversary! We've had 3 spectacular years together and have been blessed in so many ways, most recently with the birth of our super cute daughter Sierra Faith! We're looking forward to many, MANY more years of marital bliss!!

My parents sent this yummy fruit basket to help remind us of the date :)

Eli's Baptism

This past weekend we had a fun time visiting the Grandparents Rossman! Then it was off to Frederick to see our good little buddy Eli's baptism.

Sierra's First Bath!

Tonight was finally the night. After 3 weeks of sponge baths we decided to go for broke and bust out the sink mounted baby bath. What a difference! It turned bathtime from a squirmy-wormy don't drop the baby challenge into a pleasant, soothing, cleansing experience. Fun was had by all!

This Past Week, Sierra Turned 1 Month Old

How time flies! To mark Sierra's achievement of reaching OneMonthOld status, we held a BBQ in her honor. BBQ Ribs, burgers, chicken, and pasta salad were all consumed by the TheBigPeople who care for and nurture ThePinkOne. ThePinkOne mostly slept in her swing, subtly mocking the revelers around her. Then "Uncle" Andrew held her, and there was much rejoicing :)

As a bonus, I've included some precious pictures of Scout and Sierra enjoying some time together last Sunday afternoon.

Action Figure Sierra!

Yesterday we had lots of fun taking Sierra and Scout to one of the many lovely dog parks in the area. Taking pictures there, amongst all the chaos, gave me the idea to pose Sierra in the big chair as a life-like replica of her very own action figure.

In a stunning break from all-Sierra, all-the-time, below is a picture of a budding flower in our front yard. I'll post the final bloom as I'm sure you won't want to miss it!

Slushtastic BBQ!

My old roomate Slush dropped by yesterday for a little BBQ.

This is what happens when Slush licks himself:

Slush In Da' House

This is what happens when you let Slush take extreme close-up shots of your baby. The results are quite good :)
