My Dream

Right now I have a 12 gallon salt-water tank. I have live rock, live sand, 3 damsel fish, and 2 snails. Hopefully soon I will get my tank ready for a clown fish and an anemone and give my damsels back to the store. One day though, this will be my tank. It's it gorgeous and so peaceful?

I've crossed over

It's true, it's now Macy's blog. Oh well, she's much cuter than I am :)
That's my big girl.. holding her bottle!
She was sooo sleepy she fell asleep when rubbing both hers eyes.

It works!

Kyle has been busy the past 2 weeks- well, the days when we were home- working on the sprinkler system. It works! Cool huh?! We were shocked too :) We brought Macy out one day and let her play on a blanket in the grass, the next thing we looked over and she was laying down sleeping...
Now it's all covered up but there is still no grass where we dug up... but I'm really excited that we're gonna have a nice lawn now! Every other house on our street is really green with nice laws and then.. theirs ours... but not anymore! :)

Not so little anymore...

I was going through Macy's baby box to update stuff in her baby book and I came across the beanie she wore in the hospital. I had Macy try it on again and wow what a difference in 5 1/2 months!!
She makes me smile :)

Disneyland and our big girl!

Story behind the below picture... Macy was watching Baby Einstein and she starting to fuss a little. I went over to see what was wrong and she was almost out of her swing and somehow the bow that was around her head made it perfectly around her face. I can to snap a shot because it was too cute. The picture really doesn't do justice, she looked soo funny :) In this swing her head is usually above the orange squirrels head.. she got down pretty far...
She is sitting up and playing all by herself!! In this picture she has the boppy around her because she was still a little too wobbly, but now she just sits all by herself.
Last Tuesday we went down to Buckeye and here is a picture of us on our way...Wednesday Kyle and I had to take my Dad to Oceanside, CA for the start of Race Across America. It's my Dad's 3rd time riding in the race and they are currently in Colorado I believe. The race runs from Oceanside to Annapolis, Maryland, Three-thousand and some odd miles. Crazy stuff, I have one cool Dad! While we were in Cali Kyle and I decided to stop here...
DISNEYLAND!! It was way. When is Disneyland NOT fun? We were watching this and I thought of Stormy and Whitney so I thought I'd share...

They did some dances and songs from the movie, it was pretty good!

They had an electrical parade at California Adventure and I think this was my favorite one... it's Captain Hooks ship!

This is a first!!! Macy is holding her bottle, ALL BY HERSELF!! This has been my dream, the day I could put her down and do something while she drinks her bottle. Amazing.

That's what our week has been like :) Summer has been awesome!!

It's summer time!

I don't know where my camera is--maybe in the car or in the diaper bag, but I'm too lazy right now to really go look for it-- so this will probably be one of those posts that you'll only read if you're really bored :)

It's been so long since I really updated I don't even know where to start! May. I'll start there! I finished my 3rd to last (I like the way that sounds) semester at NAU in May, with what I was HOPING to be a 4.0... but nope. One of my classes I got a B. Dangit. Oh well. a 3.75 isn't bad either. Better luck this summer :) My little brother graduated High School, so that was a big deal. It sprinkled on us the entire time. Macy was pretty good though, she usually does really well at activities where they are new things to look at and such. Derek (my little brother, same one that graduated) also turned 18! Yeah- big month for him. We weren't planning on going to his birthday party because it would mean we were going down to the valley 4 weekends in a row, but we decided the morning of to go. It was really fun- all the kids were there and we just hung out.

June! Hey- that's this month. Hm. We've done a lot it feels like, but I can't really think of anything lol! I've cleaned the house a bajillion times. I don't know how it happens but between Kyle, Macy, and me, we make a mess! Kyle has done a lot with his DJ business, we've gotten about 6 calls in 2 weeks, so that's really good. I planted flowers! And their growing! lol. Well- the plants are growing, no flowers yet. Hopefully those with come soon. I know green is a pretty color, but I would like to have some colorful flowers pop up! The weather has been gorgous, big beautiful white fluffy clouds, not too hot but not too cold, in the 80's during the day. It's awesome!

This past weekend was spent in Buckeye/Tucson. It was Brelee's (Chris and Kati's daughter) blessing so we went down to witness and enjoy the company. I love how the two in-law families get along so well. It's fun to get together with them, they are a wonderful family!

Macy girl just isn't the same baby we brought home from the hospital- they change so quickly. I don't think you really realize how quickly they change until you have your own. She tried pears yesterday, that was so comical. She would stick her tongue out like- yuck! Get this off my tongue, I'm not putting that in my mouth! lol. It was so adorable. She is starting to sit up all by herself for longer than a minute! Well- we put her sitting and she stays like that ha ha. I can't even believe it. She will be 5 months in 3 days!! Wow. It's been 5 months since we brought her home. That's amazing!

Our house is still wonderful. Gosh I haven't even posted pictures of the house yet have I?! I'm terrible- sorry! My mom is visiting right now and painted Macy's bedroom sooo cute! We already had two walls light pink and two walls tan, but she put 3 big flowers on the pink walls with a butterfly. Gosh it looks soo cute! I'll try and remember to post pictures tomorrow because it really does look adorable. Love it!

I hope everyone is having an awesome summer! Ours is FAR better than last summer, I was throwing up 10 times a day around this time last year, so this is a nice change of pace.
