whats goin on..

Friday after Thanksgiving my good friend Christina and her boyfriend Jeff invited us to his family cabin in Pinetop. It was COLD! but so much fun! So we loaded up (even Tolly got to come!) and spent the weekend in Pinetop. It was so nice to relax and snuggle up near the fire..make smores!..go on walks..ride around in the golf cart..and watch too many episodes of storage wars..ha! Thats when Lyla first started walking along the furniture! scary :)

other than that..Tommy got into the paramedic program through Southwest and starts on Dec 12th! which means its gonna be a LONG year... oh well :) sacrifice brings blessings right?! :) Im looking into going back to school in January..I really wanna do dental we will see! wish us luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

passed her bedtime so she would NOT smile for any pictures! but had to get one of her cute outfit! :)

This year for Thanksgiving we had a lot to be thankful for. Im so grateful Lyla is with us this year! On Thanksgiving day we did the whole eat at both family things.. yikes! WAY too much food.. I think next year we may have to do one or the other :) But we had a wonderful day with lots of family! All growing up on Thanksgiving night we would have a sleepover at my aunt Debbies house. Us sisters and mom decided to carry on the tradition within our little family now! So we went to Mels for the evening and watched a sad movie (Sarah's key), ate treats, crafted (kinda!) and stayed up late cyber black friday shopping! Thanks Smelly for the fun night!


my baby is 9 months old. I think i say the same things every month post..where did the time go..i can't believe it.. but its so true! 9 months! WHAT!?

Halloween 2011

This year for Halloween was so fun! It was our baby girls 1st! We dressed her up, and took her to both grandma's houses to "trick-or-treat!" She was so cute! Cutest kitty cat I've ever seen! :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stage Lyla is in right now. I totally miss my little baby but she is just so fun. Its like I can literally watch her learn about new things. We had so much fun showing her off to everyone and can't wait for next year when she will enjoy it a little more! :)

Happy Birthday to my love! He turned the big 2-5 this year on August 7th :) We went to dinner with a few friends..swam..and just had a relaxing night. I am so grateful for him and the man he is. He is the most amazing husband I could've asked for and an equally amazing daddy. Lyla loves him so much and gets so excited when he walks in the door from work! He works so hard for us so I can stay home with our baby girl everyday and I will forever be grateful to him! I love you toe-mas! Happy birthday hunny!

Lyla's 4 & 5 Months

Yes..I have not blogged in awhile. I am having too much fun with my baby girl and never wanna waste a minute by sitting on the computer. I decided during nap time today that it needed to be done! Lyla has gotten so so big and time just wont slow down :(

at 4 months:

Weight: 15.1lbs

Height: 24.5in

-got her first haircut (buzzed off the thickness in back so she wouldn't have a mullet!)

-Had rice cereal for the 1st time..didn't love it..neither did her we held off for another month!

-got croup cough and had to go to urgent care for a steroid shot :(

-Went swimming for the very first time which she LOVED!

-held on to a toy for the first time..and wouldn't let go :)

-Had her first real babysitter.. (gma!) while we went to dinner. (I'm sure it was much harder on me than her!)

at 5 months:
-Finally rolled over :) from her belly to her back. She never really loved tummy time anyway and now I can't get her to stay on her tummy for more than a minute.

-Giggled for me! I have to really work at it but she will! Although the other night we let Tolly in and she was full on laughing at the dang dog! I gotta make every stupid noise in the book and Tol just sat there and she laughed!

-got her 2nd haircut. She just had this little patch right on top that was kept getting thinner and thinner the chubbier she got! So I decided to buzz her whole head so hopefully her hair will grow in nice and thick and even!

-had BOTH of her bottom teeth cut through! (that's been fun!) she actually hasn't been grouchy at all...just doesn't sleep good! She was sleeping SO good! from like 7:30-6:30 or 7..and the last week she has woken up like 2-4 times! son of a....

-Has found her toesies and thinks they are great. If I lay her on her back she holds her feet up and grabs onto them with her hands and will lay like that forever! :)

-Got nasty pink eye :( Poor girl! (dang cousins! he he..)

-Eats rice cereal after she nurses for one meal a day! Still a battle cuz she always has something better to look at or yell at me for which makes it messy but were getting there..

This last one cracks me up. I gave her some water from my straw one day and now anytime I have a cup with a straw she ATTACKS it..full force. So Tommy let her go to town on the straw..she can't suck it up through the straw yet don't worry..and it was only water! but she loved trying!
