Wow, where has time gone? My baby turned 10 months old yesterday. She has been such a joy to have in our lives. She may be little but she is big in the personality department.
She loves to cuddle while sucking her thumb.
She loves her pink polka dot blankie her Grandma made her.
She enjoys playing with her toys but especially loves when she get ahold of her brother's toys.
She love magazines and can often be found on top of the magazine holder or ripping up a magazine.
10 months.... how time flies! Love you Lily Cakes!

Nothing is better than a freshly bathed baby smothered in lotion. After a very long stressful day I held my Lily on the couch while she feel asleep sipping her bottle. Both kids were asleep by 7:30 and I got to sleep in until 8:00 this morning, FABULOUS!

That's one sad face don't you think?
The after picture of the done puzzle. He insisted I wait until he got his baby to take a picture with.

Been busy and need to play catch up. For now wanted to journal a few things.
Lily has slept through the night for the past 3 nights. Hooray!! Nothing feels better than getting as full night's sleep. I love it!
Alex has been cracking us up lately. Here are just of few of the things he has done/said lately that I want to remember.
The other day he told he had a problem, when I asked what it was he said "Mom, I have allot of problems." I laughed!
He has been into playing pretend lately. The other day we had to put on our imaginary hats so that the dinosaurs who were in our front room wouldn't see us. Alex was nice enough to get bananas out of the pantry and put them in the front room in case they got hungry.
He is always saying I'm joking Mom, or just kidding Mom. The one day he was walking around saying Ho, Ho, Ho. I proceeded to pretend I thought he was Santa. "Mom, it's just me I'm just kidding." What a jokester!
Another time I was upstairs getting Lily ready when I came down to find him eating a snack. We keep a child lock on our pantry for this very reason. I thought I had made sure the door was shut before leaving him alone. Sure enough it was shut in fact it was still shut just missing the lock. When I asked Alex what happened to the lock he grabbed it from a drawer saying" I needed a snack so I took it off." Then he proceeded to show me how he used a plastic kid's knife to pop off the lock. So much for that idea now.
Alex loves to fix stuff. He will go around with his gloves, tool box and belt playing Handy Manny. You will often find him fixing chairs, cracks he thinks he finds in the walls and best yet the crack he found on his Dad's butt last week. I was dying of laughter!

Alex couldn't be left out so after I took footage of Lily crawling Alex came running out of the bathroom wanting his picture taken. One minute he is testing my patience and next he is making me laugh. Love this little guy! Pardon his very all boy manners, we are trying to working on that.
Looking forward to the weekend. I have lots of stamping to prepare for an upcoming class. Lily has her Doctor appointment today and I have a GNO tonight with my former coworkers, should be fun.

Lily is 9 months today. I can't believe how fast it's gone by. Her Dr appointment is tomorrow so I will share her stats then but for now here is a little video footage from today. Don't you love how Alex has to make sure you know he is there too. Kids, gotta love them!

Sometimes being a Mom is just a bit too much for me. Three year olds sure know how to push my buttons, today has been one of those days. Alex must have known this because after this little video all I can do is smile. He begged me to take pictures and yes he is aware that his undies are on backwards. P.S. pardon the horrible singing. ;)

On Wednesday I attended my Great Uncle Leslie's funeral. Les was my Grandma Glenn's brother. She had 12 siblings but Uncle Les was my favorite. We would go to family reunions each year and I always looked forward to seeing him. He was a goofy guy who loved children and was sure to always make you smile. I remember as a child sitting on his lap during our family auction. He would raise my hand to bid on items. I would panic letting him know that I didn't have money to spend. He would tell me not to raise my hand then and again would raise my hand for me to bid on a item. I'd win some fun toy and of course he would buy it for me. He was a great man. My Great Aunt Zina passed away last Thursday and then Les, the last of the siblings passed away on Saturday. I can't begin to imagine the family reunion that is taking place in heaven. It must be spectacular! My Mom, Lily and I headed down to Orem to pay our respects to Les and his family. His Granddaughter Angie is one of my good friends.
So a side story after meeting Jason I returned to Draper and attended SLCC. My first class on my first day of school I sat next to this girl. We continued to sit next to each other and became friends. We exchanged phone numbers in case one of us missed class. One day she called me and after a lengthy conversation about life, school and our boyfriends we hung up and both chatted with our Moms. She mentioned me to her Mom who said that is my cousin's daughter I am sure. Call her and ask what her Mom's name is. When she called I was busy helping my Mom unload groceries and missed her call. My Mom checked the caller id and wondered why her cousin had called. For some reason I also checked the called id and informed her that it was my classmate not her cousin that had called. We argued about it for a few minutes until Angie called again. Sure enough we put two and two together realizing we were related. Her immediate family didn't attend the reunions so I had never met her. We have remained in contact over the years running into each other in the strangest of places. Once was at Thanksgiving Point when both of us were getting our bridals done. Our weddings were a few months apart and we both had changed our location and dates for bridals several times. We just happened to both end up at TP on the same day and the same time. We took several photos of the two of us in our dresses. It was so fun!

Looking forward to a long weekend with the family. See ya next week!

A close up of her beautiful tail, leg, fin... what would it be called?
Oh wait it's just our pretty little Lily. She is tiny but long so three month jammies are two short and six month jammies are too big. It's frustrating when I have to undo her jammies in the middle of the night to fix her legs. Silly girl!
