Hailey's first swim!

I am FINALLY sneaking in a blog post! Shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone!

I have been waiting to blog about Hailey's first swim!

We went to our friend Tiffany's house last weekend for a little "pool party". I wasn't sure if Hailey would love or hate the water. She loves her baths, so I figured she would love the pool.

We got there and I lathered her up with sunscreen. She got a little fussy, so I sat at the edge of the pool and put her feet in. She seemed to like it, but she got a little fussy just standing there.

Mommy got her a cute little floatie and put her in that. SHE.LOVED.IT! She was kicking her little feet all over the place, laughing and having a great time! I was so happy!

You know I got a few cute pics...

Overall, Hailey's first swim was a success!

First Father's Day

Craig and Hailey (and mommy too) celebrated their first Father's Day together last weekend!

I realized the next day that I am such a bad mommy, I didn't take one picture of them together =( Mommy FAIL!

It was such a nice day. We stayed home and celebrated, just the 3 of us. I was so happy to be able to do that. Not that I don't appreciate my wonderfil Father in Law, but it was nice just to have some quality time together on that special day.

Daddy got to sleep in while mommy and Hailey hung out on the new patio...

Mommy had some much needed coffee and Hailey had some banana and played with her cool "cd player"

Hailey's serious face

Then we made Daddy some Heath Bar Pancakes... a special request!

And since I am a bad mommy and didn't take ONE picture of Hailey and her Daddy on their FIRST Father's Day together, here is my favorite pic of them from the archives!

Hailey got daddy a photo book. Inside it the cover Hailey picked this picture and it reads "Daddy is a daughter's first love". Awww melts my heart.

After almost 10 years, we have a patio!

I know, I know... I am a bad blogger!

Anyways... this is what we have been up to! We FINALLY have a patio! I have been begging Craig for years to pour some concrete in the backyard and we started with this...

(well it used to be grass, but I didn't think to take a "before" pic soon enough)

And now we have THIS!
Daisy is modeling the new patio.

Our friends Keith and Alicia came up so Keith could help Craig out with the concrete and Me, Hailey, Alicia and her son Kaleb did the Relay for Life walk (sponsored by my work).

Kaleb and Hailey checking eachother out

The boys worked their tails off and us girls and Kaleb (plus Tiffany!) walked for an hour around the track for cancer.

I was excited to snap these two super cute pics of Hailey that day, so I have to throw them in!

After all the work, we all had a nice dinner outside (not on the concrete!)... but I didn't get a picture of that.

I AM SO EXITED TO HAVE A PATIO and it was SO nice to have some friends over to hang out that day. I have a feeling we will be doing that a lot more often now that we can enjoy our backyard!

Hailey can feed herself!

Hailey starting to catch on to the whole two finger grasp feeding herself thing...

=) She's very happy and excite! LOL She gets so mad when I don't stick the food in her mouth fast enough. She even gets mad when she doesn't do it fast enough!

Our baby is 7 months old!

Yep, 7 months already! I love love love watching her grow up, learn new things and become her own person, but it’s still so sad that it happens so fast!

With Hailey hitting 7 months we also have a lot of milestones to talk about!

Over the last 2-3 weeks Hailey has progressed like crazy.

She is now:

Sitting on her own!
Very well, I might add

Got not one but TWO teeth.
You can see if you look REALLY close! She didn't want me taking a picture inside her mouth apparently!

Finally rolled over from front to back! We have been waiting for this one for awhile!
(I have video but stupid Blogger isn't letting me upload it. Grrrrr!)

Hailey is also starting to learn how to use her "words". I realize she doesn't know exactly what she is saying or what it means but she says "dada" (like CRAZY), finally said "mama" yesterday and was saying "babababababababa", but since figuring out "dada" the "babababababa" has gone out the window. Daddies get all the glory =) LOL

(I also had video of her talking but you can blame Blogger for it not being here!)

Hailey also had another first yesterday... her first TORNADO warning and tornadoes touching down REALLY close to where we live... SEE

Craig exercised the storm chaser inside of himself and took this picture.

WTH????? I thought we lived in Nor Cal? This scares me!

Austin turns 2!

This past weekend we celebrated Austin’s 2nd birthday. I can’t believe he’s already 2. When people say “time flies” they aren’t lying. It seems like he was just born and we were all at the hospital in shock that not only was he 10lbs 12oz but Jennifer gave birth to him with no drugs! =) Bragging rights!


We hope you had an amazing day. Thank you for letting us celebrate with you!!!!
