Hazel: dress: carters, headband: Knot Just A Stitch
It seems like just yesterday when Brand and I brought Hazel home from the hospital. She was so small and fresh, she had dark hair and she mostly stayed asleep. She loved to cuddle up, be snuggled, and warm. And she loved the sound of her mom and dad's voices. Back then days seemed long, I was so very tired and stressed and at times I was both things mixed -which is not a good mixture if you ask me. I was worried that I would never get this whole motherhood thing down and kept thinking that I was obviously doing something wrong.

Sunday our friends blessed their baby boy, he such a sweet boy. I get all emotional talking about these new babies -they are something special that's for sure.
Hazel wore these pjs that I use to dress my dolls in, and when she was sleeping I couldn't help but think of how much she looked like a little doll in them.
This weekend we played, laughed, danced, we-no, no, no, sheeee- took naps. I'd have to say that my life is pretty much everything I've ever wanted and more. Now I just need to learn how to be a mom, make dinners, annnnnd do the house work. I never thought this mom business would be so tricky. I guess that's what happens when you want to hold and play with her all day.
Happy.... what is today.... TUESDAY!

Hazel has been talking a lot this week -baby talking of course. Her sweet girly voice is our favorite thing to listen to -like make you want five million babies kind of cute. She's starting to like when we sing to her, sometimes when I'm singing she'll start laughing at me - I don't know wither she is laughing because my singing is that bad, or if she just really likes the song. I'm hoping it's the latter.
Saturday Brand's sister graduated from school, it was fun going to her graduation and celebrating her. She is such a smart cookie and has done so well in everything she has done. Let's also talk about how she is getting married in less than two weeks! I cannot believe it, time is just flying so fast. I'm sure going to miss her when she moves away. -But, let's not discuss this now.
So, we went to her graduation -which had cake- and then we went to lunch -which was yummy. Saturday night we had dinner with friends -Hazel's first time at Lo Lo's. We later remembered and discussed that the last time we were there was before Hazel was born, which seems like forever and not so long ago.
Sunday was Mother's Day -more about this day later. I was mostly looking forward to talking to my brother! My brother is serving a mission and we only get to talk to him through skype or on the phone on Mother's Day and Christmas. I was so very excited for Hazel to meet him for the first time, it was fun to see her watch him on the screen -of course she doesn't know what's going on really but I still loved it. We talked and talked, he looks and sounds great, I love seeing him so happy. There's just something so wonderful about seeing and hearing him, I just love my missionary brother!
