Anniversary Trip

I am SOOOOO Excited! Daddy and I are turning 6 this year! And to celebrate every year we try to do something fun besides just dinner and a movie. One year we went white water rafting, another year we went to a rodeo. Last year we were totally broke so i went to dinner and called it good. But it was a little sad that we werent able to do anything really fun. So this year we scrimped and saved this last month and were able to save enough for this cool hotel we found! Its a freaking castle! And we got an awesome room. The in laws are going to watch the kids for us... and while i am sad to be leaving my baby for the first time. It will be SOOOO nice to sleep in! And there is a sweet breakfast too! Can you tell that I am excited.

This month our goal is to save enough for our park city adventures. I will post pictures later so you can see the fun we have cooked up! I just love my husband! Daddy is an amazing husband and father and i feel so blessed to be able to spend the rest of our lives having fun!

I feel like a princess just looking at this room!

8 Months and other adventures

Well everyone, sorry for the lack of blogging, but for some reason I have been having a hard time getting my photots to upload to blogger. But today is the lucky day! It finally worked.

So here we go! A is 8 months old now! I cant even believe it. The time has really flown by. Heres her list of recent accomplishments:
*2 teeth! and two more trying hard to come in
*she babbles a little, although she seems the quiet type for the most part
*squealing! Ugh... although she has not mastered this ability completely, so sometimes it comes out as a growl which is just fine with me
*She has finally figured out rolling! and she can get herself into some interesting places.
*she has also recently started to scoot a little. Its pretty funny because it looks more like she is trying to swim. But she will get there. She can get up on her hands and knees and rock too, but hasnt gotten the crawling figured out.
*she adores her brother! And he adores her right back. I love how much these two love each other and i really hope it stays that way. They make each other smile and laugh and they just like to be around each other.
*A is still a very content baby. She can sit and entertain herself for long stretches... as long as someone is in the room with her. She does not like to be alone. She gets that from me i think. :)

We have had a prety fun month. We visited Aunt wendy for fourth of July. And then we headed to Bozeman for a weekend to see my cousin before he left on his mission. Daddy and i did a 5K last weekend. He ran and i walked. :) Here are a few pictures. This first one is a tooth picture. :) you can see the two there on the bottom!

Isnt she absolutely beautiful!

Let me know and i will get you in touch with her. She is AWESOME! And she gives you the CD with copyright release. Check our her blog for some examples.

So I started back on my metformin finally a couple weeks ago and have been feeling GREAT! And losing weight slowly. Usually when i go on the stuff it makes me REALLY sick. This time it hasnt and i just thought, wow... maybe my body is used to it. WRONG.

I figured it out!

I have been eating, i think, really well lately. Last night i had three peices of pie at out enrichment night, (I know. but there were so many good pies and i was a little sugar deprived) and bam... I felt sooooo sick last night and this morning. So i think the trick is to not eat a lot of carbs with the meds and you wont feel like butt. Back to boring eating habits... but its good for me and I have been feeling a lot better about myself since i have been feeling better.

People from the past.

So i just typed this post piineaple from the past! HAHAH! Thats what i get. i have been reading for a while and my eyes are crazy right now. But! I found one of my favorite residents from my RA days! ANd i had to read her blog. She has been through some rough stuff but things are looking good i think. Anyway. I was just thinking how technology is so good sometimes. It keeps us in contact with people we would probobly never find again. I love that! I have found so many awesome freinds i used to know and have just lost touch with. SO heres to technology! Cheers!

Today I am feeling a little sentimental about K. There are hard days with him at this age. But mostly I just adore him. Today he told me "I dont need a mom! Im my own kid!" Some days his little comments hurt my feeling a little... i wont lie. But most days, like today, i just think he is hillarious! He is growing and his comments like that prove to me how smart he is. In a few months he is going to be 5. 5! It just doesnt seem possible. I miss my baby. But i love the child that he is.

4th Weekend

For the holiday we headed to Logan for some Cache Valley festivities. We stayed with Aunt Wendy... who of course spoils K rotten. :) For an early birthday present she bought him a digital camera just like ours! (Of course she got it on ebay so it was a good deal) First up was a parade! K took these first two pictures with his new camera! I think he did a good job. But seriously... what police department has a yellow camero?

That night we went to Lewiston for fireworks. K was so tired that he slept through pretty much all of it. But i did manage to get a couple of pictures.

Here is K with Wendy. They sure do love each other!
The next morning Wendy fed us an amazing breakfast... as usual. And K wanted a picture with Dad and A.
Here is K with sparklers. I forgot that one. :) I hope everyone had a great 4th weekend. We sure did!
