The two uncles!

Great Grandma and Ashtyn

We are so happy Grandma, Poppy, Nancy, and Tanner came to visit us! It was a long road trip, but we are so thankful they came.

Aunt Miranda meets Ashtyn!

Ashtyn loves Aunt Miranda! :)

Miranda flew in from Dallas on Wednesday to visit Ashtyn. I learned a lot from her and drove her crazy with all my new mom questions. Sorry Mir! We wish Doug and sweet Chloe could have been here too.

Grandpa Gary, Gigi, and Uncle Michael drive from Dallas to meet Ashtyn!

Oh, what fun lies ahead for her! :)

Ashtyn had so much fun with Gigi!

The two bros...

Uncle Michael is teaching Ashtyn how to read. We need to start early!

Last Sunday Gary, Vicki and Michael came to Atlanta! We had so much fun together even though we stayed home most of the time. We took a trip to the mall and then ate at Chilli's. We had the opportunity to hear Ashtyn scream all the way home in her car seat. That was her first REAL cry. Vicki even tried to tell her a story about how Matt proposed to me. She was interested at first, but then decided she didn't want to hear the rest of the story!

Uncle Stevo meets Ashtyn!

Ashtyn loves Mimi!

Uncle Stephen and Ashtyn

Stephen came to Atlanta with two of his college friends and one friend from his highschool in Greece. He came during his spring break and then headed off to Disney World. We had a great time with them.

Mimi bought Zoe and Ashtyn Easter dresses!

Thank you Grandma Brown for making this beautiful pink afghan for Ashtyn!

Zoe decides she wants Ashtyn's bow.

Cousin Zoe

We were thrilled to have my sister, Melody and her daughter, Zoe visit us in Atlanta! Zoe is precious and looked so grown up next to little Ashtyn. She has an adorable personality and it was so much fun to see them! We wish Andy and Jackson could have come too.

Tyson misses our attention lately...

Our sweet little angel...

Ashtyn has already proven to be Daddy's little girl! When she gets fussy, Matt will pick her up and hold her and she is instantly content and happy! :)

Ashtyn is growing and has already gained 1 pound! She now weighs 7 lbs. 2 oz. I was very happy to hear this news since she has not been the best eater lately. She is such as sweet baby! She loves to sleep between feedings, so I try to sleep while she is sleeping. We are really enjoying her. Matt does an awesome job with changing her diapers during the night (she loves to go through several diapers in one changing), and then he gets her ready for her feeding. This gives me an extra 10 mins. of sleep! :)

Ashtyn can't wait to meet her great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. They will all be here soon!

Matt and I are learning how to be parents...what a change and blessing in our lives!
