Jeans, glorious jeans

Dave and I are a couple of denim lovers and if you've been around us at all you'll notice we wear jeans 90% of the time. Funerals and job interviews are a few of the only exceptions. :) Whether through nature or nurture it's a safe bet that Trudy will be a denim diva herself. Here she is sporting her first of many pairs of jeans.

Julie and Nate Come to Visit

Julie and Nate came over today to meet Miss T. Julie is the only person who sees any of me in Trudy and I love her for that! ;)

Nate didn't know what to think about not being the baby himself.
He was a good sport about sharing his mom though. Kisses!

Roll Tide, Cuz #1, and some fluff

She's probably not going to make it to football season and still fit into the outfit, but it's great to show team spirit any time, right?

Trudy with her future t-ball coach?

Some fluff hanging out on the line. Just thought it was cute.

Let it Begin!

Today is our first day of cloth diapering. Trudy won't be wearing her skinny jeans with these, but I feel really good about putting cloth with covers on her bum instead of disposables. Wish us luck!

And here's a cute picture of Trudy with her cousin Aran taken yesterday at church.

Wintzell's Oyster House

Oh how I have missed oysters on the half shell! Nearly a year without them was torture so Mom and Dad treated us to the new Wintzell's to put me out of my misery. They were yummy delicious!

She slept the whole time. Yay!

Wednesday Night Fun

It was so nice to get out of the house and see other people! I haven't been to church on a Sunday in at least a month and a half (hopefully will break that trend this week) so Wednesday nights have been a huge blessing.

Trudy got to properly greet her public and I got some pictures with a few of her minions. ;)

Aunt Katy
Mrs. Sandi

Seeing Pat and Brian again was a special treat. Ava and Eli are so friendly and polite and Bryson is about the cutest thing ever. He's seen here trying to climb his mommy's arms to get to that cupcake. Should have taken video because it was too funny.

Mom Mom and Pop Pop Come for a Visit

Dave's parents stopped in on their way home from up North to see their newest grandchild. Number 14 for them!

It was Mom's birthday so we had some cupcakes and went out to eat.

It was so nice to get out of the house and enjoy a meal that I didn't have to practically inhale for lack of time. Mom took over when Trudy got fussy. Thanks ya'll!

White Trash Princess

Somebody LOATHES being undressed or drafty event though we keep the house at 78 degrees in the summer. Her first "bath" was a disaster so we decided to experiment by taking things out in the 95 degree heat. Success! Warm water and a hot breeze under the carport...all she needed was some jets to have a true hot tub experience.

No fussing until it was time to go in the "cold" house.

Chilaxing with dad.

First trip out. We went to Kroger for some milk and cereal. She pretty much just sleeps in the car seat. Hope that continues!

Loving her bouncer with vibrations!

More Trudy

Pretty soon the post titles are going to be "Trudy part XXVI." Just wanted to get some up of her first few days, presents, and visits.

Chillin' with Daddy
SCS sent a gift basket. Erica did a great job putting it together
Flowers from my parents
"Meme," Cindy, and Andrea stopped by to meet her. Cindy and Andrea are going to teach her that you can be a smart blonde!
And they brought something for mom instead of baby. Yay! Thanks, guys.
Trudy's future riding instructor. Unless she gets some crazy idea to go off to college and learn things *sigh* ;)
First bath. Not happy about it. And it was only a sponge bath. Sheesh.
Poor, poor, thing
A rare moment when I can just enjoy the baby like everyone else without feeding, burping, changing, or trying to steal bites of food and moments of sleep.

Crash and burn. *yawn*

Trudy's First Day

And what a day it was! I'll spare everyone the gory details. Trudy made the most of it by arriving shortly after 1:00 am so that Wednesday, August 4th could be enjoyed in its entirety. All 23 hours of it. *yawn* What was I saying? Oh yeah.
Here's her first picture taken by her daddy when she was about 10 minutes old. She was very alert. It's silly, but we're both kind of jazzed that she has hair since I was bald and Dave didn't have a lot.

Dave sharing the good news with his parents later in the day.

Gotta get prettied up to meet Papa and Gigi!
My dad finally getting a turn. Mom totally hogged her for a couple hours. ;)Do ya think he's excited?

A proud Papa and Gigi

Ok, so Dad returned the hogging in kind
The Cedillos came over after church to pay homage to "she who is kind of a big deal" (and has a button letting everyone know just in case it isn't obvious).

A very happy big cousin and a great (as in super!) aunt
Happy family
Happy immediate family
Happy extended family (all but Gigi who took the picture)

Welcome to the world little one! We're so glad you are here!
