Life with miss v - 2 months!

What a difference a few weeks and a little sunshine make. Miss V is growing like crazy - check out those cheeks. Spring forward time has come and though I don't love the time change with little ones, I am enjoying the sun still shining at 6:00 pm.

Miss V is 2 months and we are currently loving:

Her hair - obsessed with the long crazy spiky hair she is rocking.

Her botton lip - the pout when she is unhappy is so sad and so incredibly adorable.

Her "talking" - catch her in the right mood and she'll coo and chat up a storm.

Her smiles - 

And did I mention the HAIR? March 20th is just around the corner and with spring in the air, I am feeling motivated to organize and maybe even exercise. And hey... maybe, just maybe, next week's blog might be about something other than my crazy family.

Is it ever too late to say thank you?

Over the past 8 weeks our family has been blessed with visits and gifts from wonderful friends and family. Baby clothes, meals, rides to school for our oldest, and the list goes on. I do try to send out thank you notes right away, but as you know... this baby number 3 is keeping us on our toes and I may have let a few thank yous slip. Thus the question, is it ever too late to send a thank you note? If so when? I do wish a few of these had gone out 3 or 4 or even (yikes) more weeks ago, but maybe I'm still in an acceptable window for thanking? I checked with Emily Post, but she doesn't list a category for "new baby gift thank you timing" that I could find. I'm going to go with the philosophy that it is never too late to send a thank you. Besides, now I have those adorable chevron thank you stationery to show off!
