Growing up!

Last Monday the 18th Adalyn got to take her first ride in her new toddler FORWARD FACING car seat. At almost 17 months Adalyn finally reached the 20 lb mark!! I was off that day so we were headed to Chef's Inn to have lunch with daddy. The big lunch tuckered her out and she couldn't keep her little head up during the ride home.

Terrible Teething

I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog anymore but I wanted to get all the mom's thoughts on this one. I realized last night that Adalyn is in the process of cutting her first molars on the top of her mouth. The problem is that these will be the first two teeth she has on the top, and they are way back...definately her big jaw teeth. They are far enough back that it won't look like fangs, but will still look strange when she opens her mouth. Have any of you experienced this with your little ones?

one year ago today...

One year ago this evening we went to eat at Cracker Barrell with my mom and dad since I couldn't have anything to drink after midnight. This is a picture of us afterwards when we were about to head home--don't I look excited :-) I was scheduled to be at the hospital at 6 am the next morning to have my labor induced.
At home that night I realized I still had lots to do and not enough time. I wearily finished up packing random things I hadn't thought of before...decided the bird cage must be cleaned THAT night...and on and on it went.

I need Chandler to do a post here as well cause I know he worked on a few off the wall things that I can't remember now. Anywho, I stayed up way too late but I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep and I didn't.

The next morning you can see that my mood hadn't improved and you can see how my dad was feeling. I think Chandler was just as nervous as me. He went the wrong way to the hospital, got lost in the parking deck and told the check in nurse he was a "freshman" when asked if he was a junior or senior.

We finally made it in and I got all set up to begin the waiting game...again, can't you see how excited I am...This is my I'm nervous as heck smile.

More to come tomorrow!

Adalyn's First Camping Trip

We're home today feeling under the weather so I though I'd post an update on Adalyn's first camping trip. We took a trip to Blanchard Caverns a few weeks ago with Jason, Nikki and Carter. We had a great time and got some great pictures.

Randi tagged me to complete this task...

1. go to your documents/pictures

2. go to your 5th file

3. go to your 5th picture

4. blog about it

5. tag 5 people

Well, here it is--
This is my attempt to photograph a putt putt golf score card! Chandler and I were in Branson for our anniversary a few years ago and I actually won so I needed to have proof. I did actually take another picture that shows the final score and isn't so blurry, but this was #5.

I tag Julie, Courtney, Amanda, Andrea and Lori!

I hope this picture makes you laugh as much as Chandler and I have laughed about it. We were trying to capture a picture of the bad hair day she was having. Instead we got this!
Here is a better shot of her Kramer hair.

Meet the twins!!!

These are Adalyn's cousins and they were born 10 days after her, so this post is long overdue. The first picture is a day we went to meet them while I was still on maternity leave. Harrison is the little boy in the picture and when he saw Adalyn laying on the couch he said "Wow! She's a big one!" Too never know what kids will say and she did look bigger compared to the twins. They are beautiful healthy little girls--Susannah Belle and Jacqueline Elaine.

We spent the day visiting and eventually went for a walk. We had all three babies lined up in strollers and at one point all three babies were crying. I have a video of this that I'd like to post but I'll have to save that for another day. I tried taking pictures of them all, but at least 1 of the 3 was crying every time I tried. Plus, one month old babies don't pose!
