Santa brought Rosalee some Purdue clothes and a monkey stuffed animal. The only bad part is that Santa got 12 month sizes so Rosalee has to wait to wear her new things.

He burps her during the night after I feed her. He used Trouble as a prop pillow to hold Rosalee up and ended up falling asleep. :)
This is the first time Jesse gave Rosalee a bath. This is one of the things he enjoys doing with her.
He loves snuggling our girl after burping her at night. It's so sweet to see!
Jesse LOVES the snugli! He puts Rosalee in it to do homework, housework, or to cook. As soon as we put her in it she falls asleep against Jesse's chest.

Marie is thankful for Jesse being willing to wake up with her in the middle of the night and help with the baby. She is also thankful that the school district is willing to work with her on developing a flexible schedule to work with students in the home so she can spend more time home with Rosalee.

One of my favorite things to do with Rosalee is snuggle her. She's so small, adorable, and loving that I just can't help myself! We spend a lot of naps like this on the couch.
Jesse is already adapting to doing things around the apartment with Rosalee. Here he is putting a puzzle together with Rosalee sleeping on his shoulder.

My mom came to my school with me to visit the students and show them Rosalee. My mom was great at helping the students and working with them even though we were just there to visit.

My mom made the dress for Rosalee's blessing. She cut, sewed, and finished the whole thing in less than 8 hours. Then she overnight mailed it to me so we'd have it in time for the blessing. I'm very thankful that she was willing to stay up and work on it so we'd have it on time.
A big yawn for such a little girl.
This is her all dolled up for church. Her Aunt Beth gave us some red slippers that matched the gown PERFECTLY. Jesse picked out the bow for her head after twenty minutes of debating. He's so cute about things like that!
