A little bit of randomness

- First off, Happy Birthday to my father-in-law!!! Hope you had a wonderful day!!!!!

- I've started working out again! Yay. A friend and I are doing the Couch to 5K program (click if you want more information). So far, so good. I despise running with a passion but so far it has been more than do-able and I'm....wait for it.... enjoying it! My friend is doing a little running group in Hays but I'm a lonesome running gal here in Victoria, so if anyone is interested let me know. I even downloaded an app on my ipod that keeps track of when you walk, when you rest, etc. Love it.

- Lyla just started playing "Where's Lyla" recently. She will throw a blanket over her head and then after I say Where's Lyla, she pulls it off and giggles. Love these little moments with her!

- So I'm watching Teen Mom and that show makes me so grateful for everything I have, for the husband and daughter I have and for the family I have. I feel so bad for those little kiddos that have to grow up in some of those households. I'm pretty super blessed, I must say.

- Lyla's first birthday is in 3 weeks exactly and I have 101 million things to still do. Hoping to cross a few things off this weekend. Invites going out tomorrow! I'll post one after they have been mailed!

- Keep your fingers crossed, but I may have something super great in store for me. And no, I'm not pregnant again...yet! :)

Father's Day...

Yup. I'm way behind. Totally slacking. Unfortunately, Mr. Dadd-io didn't have a good father's day at all. We both decided that would be a great day to annoy each other. Such is life... good thing he has 60 or so more ahead of him. Which means I have other chances to make it up to him! :)

We went out to breakfast that morning and then headed to church. That afternoon he went and played golf. Sweet and simple for us that day.

Oh, and we took pics. Like we do just about every important day! :)

Lyla is one lucky lady to have a dadd-io love her as much as he does! Thank you bub for everything you do for her and I. We think you are spectacular and love you!!! :)
Happy Father's Day...(1 month late)


Another video...oh how I love her! Hope your having a great weekend! It's bad news bears around our house :(....

Some vidoes

I have like a million plus 1 things to write about but I've been lacking time. So instead you get a video. I'm pretty sure her laugh is going to make you smile so if you are having a bad day, then watch. And well if you want to see a stinkn' adorable baby girl, then you should probably watch too.

Lyla {11 months}

A few days late, but here's what Miss Lyly have been up to!!!

- You finally weigh a tad over 17 lbs! You are in a size 3 diaper still and wear 6-9 month clothes with a few 6-12 month stuff. Everything is still pretty much huge on you.

- You still sleep from 8:30 til 6:30 and take 3 naps a day. A small one in the morning a 1 1/2 - 3 hour one in the afternoon and a small catnap in the evening.

- You are the best eater! You will eat anything in front of you!! You take a bottle of breast milk 4 times a day. You only nurse 1st thing in the morning now as well.

- You are getting into everything now and are so much fun! You'll follow us around wherever we go.

- You wave hi and by and have started mimicking night night whenever we say it before bed.

- You've started pulling to stand a little bit but you are scared to death of following and so you aren't very brave.

- You love the lake and love anything that involves water. You love to be thrown and dunked under and just giggle the whole time!

- You stayed with your granna and pops for the first time while mommy and daddy went on vacation. We missed your 1st 4th of July but you enjoyed spending time with them!

- You are finally army crawling!!! :) And you are getting super fast at it as well!

- You've cruised the bath tub a time or two and you've also finally started taking some steps with your walker. But you are really not a fan of it at all! My guess is you'll be walking by 14 months.

- This last month you've done a great job at going from your belly or your back to sitting. I found you in your crib a few times sitting up and never figured out how you got there. Now you do it no problem!

- You've become super ticklish and just laugh and laugh whenever we tickle you. You also love to be "chased" or flipped upside down. You have the sweetest laugh!

It's very hard to believe you will be turning 1 in less then a month. I would have never thought this day could come so fast! You have grown up so much and no longer seem like my little baby! We love you, Miss Lyla!

Happy 11th Month Birthday, pretty girl!

Another one of those...

This is another one of those "awww, i love her" posts!! She is almost 11 months and that makes me super super sad. I wish she would stay like this and not get any bigger! I have about 5 weeks to plan the Victoria "Party of the year"! Lets say I wanted a petting zoo, but Seany boy won't allow. He's a birthday party pooper, let me tell ya. I've got lots going on, so I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do this!
Do you think if I don't do it, then maybe she won't turn 1??????

OH busy day...

These past 4 days have flown....really flown. And believe me when I tell you....I accomplished maybe 5 things on my list.

And it was a lllooooonnnnnnggggg list. Really long.

Go me.

Never-the-less, I still had a fantabulous weekend and enjoyed it all. I was busy...just not productive, make a dent in my list, get everything I want done busy.

Today we have been go, go, go with errands, doc appts, and a play date. Oh, and my daughter is turning into a bully. She pinches, bites, and hits. Grrrreat. Is there such a thing as the terrible 11 month old?

But she is cute, right? Doesn't that make it better? At least for now?

Here's a video of her new favorite thing to do!

Hellooooo Motivation

I have zip.zero.zelch.nonwhatsoever. motivation to clean lately. Or actually motivation to do anything that doesn't involve photography or Lyla or Sean. So the ol' house has been neglected big time. So big that I think my mom should come help. (Hi Mom!) Except she can't because she feels the need to go to Wichita to see that lil' brother of mine. (Hi Kev & Kelci). So, it is up to me. And I now have 4 days to get it done. We were supposed to head to the lake for a 4 day "vaca" per se, but our lovely camper decided it didn't want to keep us cool anymore. Yup...we get to purchase a new A/C for it. Lucky us. So now I have 4 days home with the hubby and baby girl and I'm hoping to get a lot done. A lot.

A lot of cleaning. A lot of playing. A lot of photography stuff. A lot of blogging. Um... a lot of sleeping??? :)

I wish.

If only Wal-mart sold motivation.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!! :)

I thought about having Sean write a post because he is this big history buff but I figured you would all be bored to death. Like I usually am, not! :)

Sadly, I'm missing this 1st holiday with Lyla (tear,tear) but she's getting lots of good lovin with her granna and pops. I'm hoping they take lots of pictures in her 4th of July outfit (hint, hint) and that she is wearing her matching bow (hint,hint). Did you catch that oh-so subtle hint?

Hope you all have a great day!!!

My friend Shelly came over last night with her little boy who is just about the same age as Lyla, just 9 days apart! She has 3 other boys so it was nice to just let the babies play! Dalton is crawling fool so I was hoping Lyla would learn a thing or two from him...but as you will see, that wasn't the case!

Oh, and Shelly it is the tortoise and the hare. :)
