Grandparents, Belly Buttons and Cow Parades

Wow! It is hard to believe that it has been 2 weeks already since our blessed bundle of joy arrived! Parenthood has been such an amazing experience thus far. Sofia has made it quite easy and Chris and I have had incredible support from both friends and family. She is only waking up once or twice during the night - a true blessing for Chris and I. She has even reached her first milestone...her umbilical cord fell out and she has a belly button! It is truly the cutest "outie" ever. Needless to say, we are having a GREAT time playing with our new daughter and loving her more each and every minute.

Right after Sofia was born, we were lucky to have my mom come and stay for a week to help out around the house. She was such a treat helping with household stuff as well as changing/burping/feeding Sofia while I was still recuperating and Chris was at work. She even stocked our fridge with dinners for weeks to boot! Moms rock! :)

The day after Mom left, my dad and step-mom arrived to spend the long weekend. It was their first time out to our new place since we moved and so we had a fabulous time with them as well. While they were here, we took a trip to our little Stapleton town center and spent some time with the painted cows on parade. Chris and I have spent weeks making fun of them, but after walking through the parade actually had a good time and saw some pretty good artistic work! Go figure that bovine art could be interesting!

Alright, without further delay here are the much requested photos of Sofia. She is quite the character with lots of different faces despite her incredible ability to sleep! :) Enjoy!

Proud Daddy!

Great Pictures!! She is growing right before our eyes! You two look like experienced parents instead of Sofia being number one. I saw some wine in a D&W store today called "Sofia" - Guess what we're having at Christmas??

Sofia is definitely thriving. You can slow down on the feeding till we get there!!!

Grandma Mackie and Auntie Pickles loved all the pictures! Grandpa Brian wonders if she's a Leafs fan........Every time we look at her we think she couldn't POSSIBLY be any cuter! So glad things are going well.
We love you,

Oh my gosh, she's so ridiculously cute. Look at those big blue eyes just like her Daddy's!!!!

Happy Halloween, Daniels!

When she is pursing her lips she looks just like her daddy when he used to eat sour candy.

I love her.

I think the baby photos are bit better than the cow snaps.

Just love clicking on the pictures to make them big.
Only problem is that I want to get to Denver to see her and you two in person.

I am learning to be patient.

Hugs to y'all
