one of my bestest friends welcomed her little girl into this world this year too! I am certain anna clay and mary mason will be great friends and have lots of fun times together! so exciting!


anna clay in her room, in her bed...with the help of her little froggy to sleep
Big thanks to will for making this happen! bc im certain i would have been fine with her sleeping in between us for the next 18 years...ha !ok maybe not! Will made me start putting her in her bed early. we tried this once at 3 weeks- and i think i got less sleep than any night because i was so nervous...but my goal was for her to be in her bed by the time i returned to work...and we won! thanks to mr froggy and the SWADDLE blanket...i will say she hated to be swaddled the first 4 weeks...but finally it worked! and boy has it! ha she loves it- she started sleeping in her room at 5 weeks and has since then. she even slept through the night 2 nights in a row at 6 weeks and 4 days! I can not even put her in the bed awake and she will fall asleep on her own. Im so proud of her and of me(i can say that...bc i never thought it would get any easier)!

Silly Daddy

Will won the Country Club Championship- he says these are his 2 trophys

nonna and her babies

Anna Clay being held by Nonna(even though jack calles her dah)! jack is so sweet to anna clay. he already loves her and it is so obvious! It is so much fun for all of us to see jack and anna clay together. jack has named her bebe! he screams bebe often...blair says every baby picture in their is house is bebe and he wakes every morning asking for bebe! i think blair has the approval for number 2...come on blair! ha!!! we are both so blessed to have our own loving mother. my mom is so special to me and is so loving and giving. i now know just how much she loves me and understand our relationship on a much deeper level. i feel blessed by the relationship i have with both my mom and my dad- and i find myself hoping and praying that anna clay will be as close to us as i am to them...i am so grateful for my mother! and my father! and the love they gave, have, and continue to give!!!! xoxoxo i love you mom and dad!

i love my daddy... my daddy loves me!

anna clay and daddy!
This picture is not only Will's most favorite picture Jill took, but it is also one of my most favorite pictures that she took. For the most part because it tugs at my heart! It says so much.
Will has been an amazing husband and now he is an amazing father! I think one
word that always comes to mind when thinking of your father or husband is
safety! I love seeing anna clay so small in Wills hand as a protector.
He is so good with her and it makes my heart grow daily
for him! I hope that he and anna clay share the
closeness that my daddy and I have shared.
Little girls love their daddys
and daddys love

our great friend, Jill Carter came the Friday we got home from the hospital to take anna clays first pictures! I can not thank her or brag on her enough. She did an amazing job on capturing the beauty of our first week with anna clay! I will treasure these pictures forever...here are just a few to share!

Our first picture

anna clay joined us at 3:23 am on august 11, 2009. Will and I can not express the love and joy we have in our heart! God is so good and we are so very blessed! Being a mother is like nothing I have ever experienced. Now that my 6weeks maternity leave is over I should be able to update our baby blog(anna clay blog) more often! she is 7 weeks today and these past few weeks have flown by(the last 7 weeks of my pregnancy seemed to creep by but I could have beg for my 6 weeks at home with anna clay to go much slower) ha!
