My New Look!

It isn't the best picture, but what do you think of my new 'do?

My husband says I am now officially a mom, lol, I am going to take that as a compliment.

I have always loved counting down to all sorts of events. I love the anticipation and the excitement that comes from waiting and waiting for something fun to happen.

12 hours before I get my hair cut...

12 days until Whitney and Cody's wedding...

25 days until Ty's Birthday...

One month until my 22 birthday ...

12 days and two months until Quinn comes home ...

There is always something fun to look forward to. What is on your countdown?

Oh! and my dad just started potato harvest. He has been in our thoughts and prayers. We love our potatoes and we are starting Emree out early...

Do you want Fries with that shake?

We just went to Washington for my cousin Liberty's wedding (Thank you Mom and Dad Baker). Her and I have always been so close. We use to sneak all sorts of food together, play barbies all hours of the night, and watch movies over and over again. We also always confided in each other. I could tell her anything and she could do the same. We gave each other advice, hugs, and a shoulder. I am so excited she has found David. They are so perfect together and their sealing was perfect. I am so excited they can be bound together for all eternity and that we could be a part of it.

It was also fun (always) to be home with my family. My mom has most of the pictures of our fun times, but here are a few of my little family at the aquatic center.

And my post wouldn't be complete with out a smile from Emree.

6 tricks for 6 months!

1. Rolling Over... okay it took her a while, but who needs to roll over when mom brings you everything. She can roll both ways, but mostly she just rolls as fast as the speed of light to get off her tummy and as slow as molasses to get to her tummy (she doesn't like her tummy).

2. Smiling at Everyone... this isn't necessarily a trick, but it is about all she does. She loves to smile at strangers. We recently flew from Spokane to California and she probably had a smily conversation with just about every person we ran in to. You may think this is adorable, however, it really ruins my groove because I can't stand talking to strangers and with this little jewel I get to have conversations with loads of them.

3. Sitting Up ... she was also pretty slow at sitting up. Now she can't get enough of it. Her only problem is she likes to reach for everything and this makes falling over eminent.

4. Pacifier Inserting ... this trick has not yet been mastered, but the mediocre version is pretty cute!

5. Gurgling ... is her new favorite sound and she likes to get louder and louder all the time. I think it is her way of saying, "Look at me, look at me, LOOK AT ME!"

6. EATING... this not really a trick either, but it is her favorite pass time. You don't get thighs like that by starving your self.

Needless to say, "We like, her, we love, her, we want some more of her!"

We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father for our beautiful, chubby angel.
