Bath Time

Marin LOVES bath time! I am relieved because she absolutely hated sponge baths. I got up the courage to try out a real bath once her cord fell off. She didn't cry at all until it was time to get out. She smiled, cooed and kicked her feet the whole time. I remember loving baths as a child and now I am looking forward to many fun baths with her!

First Days

We welcomed Marin Warren Carter into the world on September 20th at 7:05 pm. She weighed 8 lbs 15 oz and was 21 3/4 inches long. We are so in love with this little girl already. Each day seems to get a bit easier. She is a fantastic night sleeper, but we're working on taking naps during the day. She has so many funny expressions and the cutest smile I have ever seen. She squeaks and chirps all the time, which makes us laugh. We have enjoyed some nice walks around the neighborhood and even a picnic in the park one day. Mark comes home at lunch and can't wait to see her. He is definitely head over heels for her. She is definitely Daddy's girl. Here are a few pictures from our first couple weeks together. As you can tell, she loves sleeping on her tummy ...especially when she's curled up on mommy or daddy's chest.

First night
Happy family after a long day!
I'll never forget the moment I heard Mark say, "It's a girl!"
Big girl!
There's nothing better in this world than seeing the man you love
holding your baby girl. I love them both more than anything.
I can stare at that sweet face all day.
Bentley is so good with her.
Daddy's girl
Her favorite position
She was so good for visitors!

So sweet
