Happy Easter

What a beautiful day it was. Even if we did go to bed too late, Eat too much candy, and didn't take long enough naps... It was still a great day. 
I love my sweet family and I am so thankful for them and for my savior that has made it possible for us to live again one day.

8 months

I feel like Shelby is all I post about these days. But she is changing so fast that I just have to document. 

She loves nursing and has started practicing gym-nurstics she basically sits and twists and lies down and flips over while nursing. It is hilarious. She still doesn't have teeth and is my latest teether. She gets 4-10 extra ounces of breast milk through a bottle each day. This is from my frozen stash and milk from her cousin Everly who has decided to share with us. (I am hoping everly's milk will help her fatten up)
Shelby has started to be clingy to rich and I lately. She doesn't mind other adults holding her unless I am close and then she is not happy about it. However, she will smile her little heart out at you from a distance. 
Her hair seems to be coming in curly all over.  The hair on the back of her head is starting to get little baby curls too. I also got it in a ponytail today which is adorable. 
Shelbs has started pulling up to standing on the furniture. She also army crawls all over the place and ends up under tables and desks a lot. 
She loves to be carried in the baby carriers and doesn't care if she is facing me or out to the world. She also goes to bed around 6, wakes up once to nurse, and then wakes up for the day at 7. 
She isn't a huge fan of food anymore. She loved it like crazy to start but then with all the throwing up she did in the past couple weeks she isn't impressed with it. She will eat half the amount she used to and then only if she really likes it.

 Happy 8 months little girl. I will post more on her 8 months later. 
Obviously Cara is excited about it. 😂

Thanks to uncle John and aunt Laura for coming to visit us!!

Only in Napa

So only in Napa can your daughter buy this fancy corkscrew at the school store. Ryann came home so excited because she thought it was a microscope. Poor little Mormon girl had no idea what a corkscrew was. 

Now she is plotting on how much money she can sell it to uncle Cory or uncle pete. Maybe a bidding war is in order.

Sunday mornings

I work a lot of Saturday nights. When I get home I crawl into bed and rich helps get the kids breakfast. Then he leaves for church around 8. I woke up at 9 to some loud kids and when I came out to check on them this is what they were doing. It was one of the cutest and funniest things I have ever seen them do together. They never play this well and j had to document it.

End of the Disneyland day

Of course we stayed around long enough to see the parade and fireworks. They were spectacular. I also ran into an old friend from college and we chatted for awhile. It was so great to see her. 

The parade was fun and loud and we danced following the parade. When j say we I mean myself and one other friend. After that we headed down to Main Street to shop for our little ones. 
And most importantly I got a churro on the way out of the park. It is a hamilton tradition. 

After that we headed back to my aunt and uncle's house and loaded up the car for the drive home. That was fun. I slept for the first hour, spent the second hour keeping someone awake and then finally decided to take over and drive the last 4 hours. 

Shelby was fabulous and slept the entire way home. 

Would I do it again? YES!!

Disney in a day

About a month ago a couple girlfriends and I decided to plan a one day trip to Disneyland! We found a day that sort of worked for some of us and decided to drive down at night, spend the night at my aunt and uncles house, go to Disneyland, and then drive home after the park closed. 
 So we were crazy and did it!! Our husbands and sitters manned the fort  while we went off and played. Shelby came with us and was such a trooper. She didn't feel well so she slept a lot. 
We walked over to the park in the morning (after hardly any sleep) and started our day. We went on hyperspace mountain twice in a row, followed by Indiana jones twice in a row, and then ate at the blue bayou. 
We spent all day playing and going on rides and doing a little bit of shopping. It was so much fun and we are already scheming on how we make this into an annual trip. Haha. 
Here is Shelby and I on our way to Indiana jones. 
Thunder mountain railroad selfie. 
All the girls here. 

Around 3 we met up with my uncle John over at California adventure. He asked to take Shelby while we went on a couple rides kid free. It was heavenly as well.  Then around 4 he surprised me and took her back to my aunt and uncles house when I got a text saying that they wanted to watch her for the rest of the night. I might have done a little happy dance!!

Gymnastics and street tacos

On our way to gymnastics this little cutie convinced me to get her a couple tacos. How do I say no to street tacos?

Mouse in the house

I opened up the cabinet where we put some food storage in a couple days ago and I spotted signs of a mouse invasion! I didn't see the mouse and I didn't see any poop, but this was very upsetting to me. 
I started cleaning things up and my smart girls grabbed a cat mug in order to scare away the mouse!  HAHHHA. 
They sure crack me up. 

I also went out and bought some traps and set them up. Nothing yet though.

Happy 60th

We celebrated my mom a couple days this week. On Sunday Cory and Katie threw a surprise party for her!  Mac was recovering from throwing up so we kept him at home.
