the many sides to matilda...

ok, team. well, i assure you that it has been worth the wait. I know, I know, you have all been DYING to see more pictures of the doll face.
I never disappoint, you know? (that last sentence was meant to be spoken with an accent).

why have I waited so long to post? well team, it has been busy around here. I know, mind reels that it could be busy, but alas, it is true. We have been having parties a minute around here. After my mom left on Tuesday evening, the 6th, Aaron's mom, sister Kirstin and her 10 month old Max came to visit. As I type, Aaron is showing them a good time out on the town. Yes, you guessed it, they are at the infamous Alamo and Riverwalk. I have an outing scheduled with the wee one tonight. She is going to meet all my fun co-workers at a little get together. We have her outfit all picked out and it is sure to be a good time.

But, before that happens, I thought I'd let you see some cuteness. READERS BEWARE!!! there are SOOOO many stinkin' cute pictures of this Matilda Mae, you might die of happiness. But, don't say I didn't warn you.

"i love to rock."

"snap your fingers along with me. now, groove to the music."

this one is just DARLING! did i mention that Lizzy made this headband for her?? sooo cute. good work, lizzy.

"mom, shut the blinds, it is a little too bright."

is this a PERFECT shot of a PERFECT dolly? yes, it is. I love EVERYthing about it.

matilda... thug style. (I promise, I did not manipulate her hands in any way.)

ok, this isn't the best shot with great lighting, and yes, there are the remote controls well within my reach---
but I couldn't resist having Aaron take a picture of this little elfin girl yawning.

she looked like a baby clown. LOVE IT.

notice the froo froo ruffles. total clown material, right? totally. love it.

nothing but cute.

look how stiff she looks! this outfit couldn't fit her better if I wanted it to! And look at that face!?!
yes, she has grown an inch too! our little bean pole.


Grandpa Wood had strict orders for K and Kirstin to buy a toy truck of some sort for Tillie in order to "man her up a bit"---here's what Kirstin found. Take special notice that it is the GraveDigger monster truck. How would I know that? Remember Aaron and my 3rd anniversary post? yes, Tillie already has a special connection, b/c she was there experiencing the magic, only it was in the womb. Nice, Kirstin, nice.

tired of the photo shoot already.

our own little Rastafarian. oh my word. too funny.
she's even making the face I would have chosen her to make for this pose. golly, she is good. and at such a young age? i know. awesome.

**ok, this is a "rastafarian" for those of you, like my sister Becca, who doesn't know what one is. Think Bob Marley, team. Got it? For some reason I feel like this image is a little out of the ordinary... you know, for a 3 week old baby photo montage. Whatev.

Well, there you have it. I have MANY more pictures, but here are some of the favorites from the last little bit. Remember how tomorrow she will be 3 weeks old? WHAT?! I know. Nuts. She is still perfect. We love her to death. We melt every time we see her. Lots of love for this little girl. Lots and lots of love.

I'll be posting the updated room pictures that my mom, lizzy, and I did and then also some more of the Wood's visiting. Get excited. Oh, I already know you are. Okay, bye for now.

Shelly said...

Ok really she is so so cute! I love all the photos of her. She looks so long and skinny! Congrats on her birth. isn't it so fun to just watch her all day long. I still love to do that with Bryce. they keep getting funnier and funnier and their personalities really start to come through. Enjoy every second. They don't last long enough!!

Shelly said...

PS your labor sounded a lot like mine. After 30 hours I had to get a C-section too. I was sad, but at that point I just wanted it all to be over, and the baby to be healthy and out of me. I hope that you are recovering OK from your C-section. Seriously even if you feel good do not push it. it is not worth what can happen

Mel Bel...
Okay I am so jealous that she is on the outside, and mine is still on the inside. Lets just say I can't wait! Truly mel, she is a doll, I think I check your blog three times a day just to look at the same pictures. I will be honest...your post about labor and delivery got me a tiny bit nervous, but in a good way. It is all part of preparation right?! No honetly I love you and cannot believe what an awesome mom you must be! Give Tillie a squeeze and lots of kisses on that soft little neck skin!
