A Year....?


Wow! I can't believe that it's been almost a year since I've posted on here! I am really going to try harder this year! So, Leilah turns 2 in just a couple days, how crazy! She is so fun. Her loves include art projects, playing in her kitchen and with her babies, singing and dancing, and reading books. She is so so smart and she is always catching me of gaurd by the things that she knows. We are working hard on learning her colors, she can count to ten, and as of Jan 14th (an early birthday present to me) She is now potty trained! Awesome! It is so wonderful, and she is so proud of herself, and we are proud of her too, and all before her second birthday!
(Look at that crazy bedhead and cheesy smile!)
I will do a better update when I post about her birthday, but just wanted to be sure that I got this huge milestone archived! Way to go Leilah!

shes 1! Leilah's Little Party


We had a little family birthday party for Leilah. We had a milk and cookies theme. My mom made the greatest cakes for it! it turned out wonderful. But Leilah did not like the cake! HAHA. She does not like sweets. She makes funny faces, and gags, and spits it out. She is so cute. well, here are the pictures! In the last picture she is with her favorite toy. It is a chicken that sings old mcdonald, and she has it with her all the time. Also, you'll see football on tv behind her...so she shared her party with the Super Bowl:)

I skipped a month



I just realized, looking back, that I never posted Leilah's 9 month picture or any Halloween! here ya go! She is crazy bed head, because this is right after she woke up! For halloween she was a ladybug during the warm days...but at night it was cold, so Shawn's sister got her this adorable football costume. I had to put a bow on her head so you could tell she was a girl. Boy was she hit a every house!




3 months worth of photos :)

So, I am so behind! The only way to catch up is to write a quick blurb...then post a million pictures, so here it goes:

The lost three months have been wonderful! Leilah is becoming such a big girl. She turned one year old yesterday, and I can't believe how fast time has gone. Her latest loves are her stuffed chicken and her baby dolls which she hugs and rubs their backs and gives them kisses...adorable! She also loves to dance, twirl in circles, blow kisses, and jabber nonstop. Christmas was wonderful and the new year brings new changes to our little family. We also just said goodbye to Shawn's brother who left for the MTC. We are so proud of him! Leilah's 12 month picture is coming...I won't wait another 3 months...So, here are the pictures:


Leilahs first tastes of sweets! I think she enjoyed the mess making as much or more, then she did eating it. Isn't the cake adorable...thanks mom!
See you in two years Daniel! Way to go!
Loving on her baby doll

So Behind!

S, tomorrow Leilah turns 10 months old. I just can't even believe it! But I am so behind on blogging. I need to post halloween, nine month pictures and stats, and now 10 month's too! Anyway, expect it soon! As of now she just growing so fast and literally running around the house, it's hard too keep up with her! Shawn is doing so much. He's working hard, and finishing up his semester. I'm so proud of him, and grateful to have such a great husband!

Breaking Bad Habits

Do any of you remember reading this book?
In it Mama Bear realizes that her family watches way too much tv, and so she turns it off for a week. Unfortunately for me, I'm not like Mama Bear...I'm a huge part of the problem at my house. I have realized lately that I watch way too much TV, and even when I'm not watching it's just on as background noise! SO, It taking Mama Bear's challenge! Now, I'm not pulling Shawn into my experiment yet, because he's not as bad as me:)
The crazy thing is that we don't even have cable...oh goodness, think about how bad I would be if we did...I'd spend all day in front of the DIY channel.
So, my challenge starts tomorrow. So, wish me luck...I'll keep you updated!

Shawn's Birthday!

Thanks to the help of my wonderful mother, I was able to take Shawn away for a night to Mount Elbert, for his birthday! We had so much fun playing with Leilah, relaxing, hiking, and taking a ton of pictures. Here they are!
