This is a special post just for mommy. Today is the last day of my maternity leave (insert sad face) so I need some pictures to make me smile while I am at work away from my little one. Even though I'm sure I will have a bit of separation anxiety from my baby, she will be in great hands with her daddy for a few weeks. Here are a few of the million pictures I took of my sweetie pie on my phone:

Dave and I headed up to Gettysburg for the day to take the baby on her first outing. We had lunch and walked around the battlefields.

Mama Bahr and Geez were so incredibly sweet to drive all the way from Ocean City to babysit Skylar while Dave and I had our date night. We went to see 'Breaking Dawn' and enjoyed an amazing meal at the Melting Pot. It was a great night. Thanks so much Mama Bahr and Geez for babysitting our precious baby girl

Dave and I at the Melting Pot - Side note: the picture was taken with a camera phone and the flash caused our coloring to be off due to the lighting in the Melting Pot. Who am I kidding - I am just super pale. :-)
Skylar with her Grandparents. She had so much fun spending the evening with them!!!

Skylar and I took a road trip to Harrisonburg, VA for the day to visit with my Grandma and mom. I wanted to get in some quality family time before my maternity leave comes to an end and I am back at work. We went to Cracker Barrel for lunch and then Megan and Dan came over that evening for pizza. It was so much fun spending time with family and I can't wait until Christmas when I get to see EVERYONE in the family!!

Lindsay drove up for the day from Haymarket, VA to see baby Skylar and go to lunch. We went to Chevys for lunch and caught up on much needed girl time. It was so nice visiting for the day. Lindsay's little bundle of joy is due in 2 1/2 months!
