Enjoying the Fall

We took some pretty cute pictures this week that we wanted to share. This family picture was just a "hurry and sit in the leaves and smile" picture. My brother blessed his baby on Saturday at my parents and we took advantage of my wonderful sister-in-laws photography skills.

Here Brett is showing off his skills of holding Jules' feet while she stands up. It almost looks like she is floating. He amazed everyone. She had the cutest dress on, it almost looked like she was a ballerina.
This picture is at my favorite park down by the Orem Wal-Mart. It's called Nielson Park and it's just beautiful. If you haven't been there you have to go see it. We had to get some pictures of us with all the beautiful colors since they are almost all gone.

Brett freaking out that she was too cold so he had her in his coat for the picture.
Jules showing off her flexibility skills.

Bitter-Beer Face

Or should I say Pop-eye. Lately Jules has had this new thing. Well, new things I guess I should say. One, she likes to eat her toes now. It's the funniest thing. I know it's a normal thing but everything is just cuter when it's your own kid. She's also biting her lips and making the "bitter-beer face". I was able to capture a little of both things and she was able to surprise me and make the pop-eye face for this picture. Have I mentioned that Jules is not very photogenic.
Here's a better picture of her just eating her toes.

Now for an apology for all you that read the last blog and believed it to the point that you were too impatient to read the whole blog and you called me either mad or excited. I really did think that I was pregnant for a week so when I found out that I wasn't I decided it would be fun to make you all think I was for a little bit too. Trust me, I was freaking out more than you were. I must admit that I would have called right away also.
We still haven't moved yet, next week is the big week. We've already started packing and have a lot done but still have a lot ahead of us. We are in the process of buying a new car so that's exciting. Brett had an acappella group but it wasn't going where they wanted it to so they are in the process of starting over yet again.
Fall is here and I'm trying to love it. The cold just came a little too fast for me. I think that mostly I'm just not excited to have to worry about a kid in the cold.
Jodi I have to tell you that I went to a spinning class today. This guy in my ward has been trying to get me to go for the past 3 months and I finally made it. I did love it and am excited for the next chance I can get there.

Post a Comment

I sort of figured out a way to post a comment if you want to. You have to click on the post itself on the right side then scroll down and on the bottom is will ask if you want to post a comment. There you have it. Post away.

13 Months Apart

Now you are asking yourself "Who are 13 months apart". Well let me tell you in a very different and inapropriate way that I'M PREGNANT and the babies will be 13 months apart. I guess this is a way to see who really reads the blog. This will go to show that my family will not know for a while. I was going to wait to tell you all but I can't keep a secret. I know it's crazy and no this one wasn't planned either but what do you do? It will be crazy but it will all work out. I have two brothers that are 13 months apart and everything in the long run works out. I kept wondering why I was so hungry all the time and so tired and now I know why. We just found out this week. I can't stop from laughing because it's just funny. Probably because it stops me from crying. Brett is freaking out a bit seeing as he doesn't have a real steady job. Good thing we are moving into a 4 bedroom place in a couple of weeks. Brett's parents couldn't understand why we wanted a van and now when they read this they will know why.

Now for something on a lighter note. Here is an updated pictures of Jules in her exersaucer. She's grown into it now and loves it. She will be 5 months tomorrow and still weighs 11lbs or so. She has a particular love for this bee that she is eating.
Since we got all hand-me-down clothes I decided to do a little shopping of my own. We got all of Brett's sisters clothes and at first they all worked since they were both born in the same season...that would continue to work except the fact that Jules isn't growing. So all of the clothes that fit her now are 0-3 months and they are all summer clothes. So yesterday I went and bought some winter clothes that will fit her. She has never worn a pair of jeans so I bought some and I can't get over how cute she lookes in them. You can kind of see them in the picture. I had a lot of fun shopping. It's so fun shopping for girl clothes. Hmmm, wonder what number 2 will be.

Something else that I have been very busy doing is making jewelry. Callie got me started and I've just been going at it. Here are the things I've made so far. The pictures aren't the best but it gives you an idea.
So anyway, that's kind of what's been up with us. We did start giving Jules goat milk to see if that will work. She seems to be a little happier but still spits up a little so we still have that to deal with. This spit up is a little different though. It kind of curdles so I can just pick up chucks, it's great. So I did stop nursing her and doing that kind of messed my body up so I actually thought I was pregnant for about 5 days seeing as I was late but alas I am not! Yay! I've never been so excited to see my period.
We are moving the first weekend in November so anyone that can help would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure we'll be calling you anyway.

This is Brett's little nephew Jude. He likes to "attack" her when she's in the bouncy seat. He just loves that he can get around on his own now. He was actually very sweet.
Here my mom put Jules to sleep. She loves to rock on rocking chairs. Last week I finally sat her down and read to her and rocked her. I was actually really surprised at how much she loves it. I guess it's a really good age because she's not trying to move so much. She just sits there and looks at the pictures and tries to touch the pages. It's so much fun. Grandma just loves Jules! Aren't they cute?

What's she going to be?

Jules has so many hats so today we tried a few on. She wasn't sure about some of them so we had to stop. Here are some of the ones that we were able to get pictures of. Here on the right we have her as a fisher girl to follow in daddies footsteps (although he hasn't been in 2 years). Then we have Jules as a chef. I'm teaching her to follow in mommies footsteps. Then we have her as a detective. Finally on the bottom we have her as a flapper girl from the 20's. Now we just wait a couple of decades to see what will really become of our little Jules.

So Tired

After all the pictures I took she seems to have gotten a little tired. Here she is right now sleeping on the 70's recliner we have. She got sick of waiting while I blogged. I guess I will just let her sleep there for now. Have I mentioned that she loves to cuddle with a blanket or whatever while she sleeps. She is my little cuddly princess. The best part is that I started her sitting up and she fell over and fell asleep.

My Little Princess

My mom got this cute "princess" outfit for Jules before she was born. It is a 3-6 month outfit and since Jules is 4 1/2 months old you would think it would fit by now. Well since Jules is only in the 5th percentile it's still a little big on her but I couldn't resist. She is a little princess and while I always hated that term (maybe it's just the grown up girls that use it that bugs me) I can't resist but calling her a princess. I will not let her get used to the term though. There is a snotty little girl in the nursery that really thinks her name is Isabella Princess. Gag me would ya. Anyway, here a bunch of pictures I took of her this morning.

She really has the cutest smile ever but I just couldn't capture it on camera.
This is what happened right before I started to take pictures. Are we really surprised though?
This is my favorite part about this outfit-Princess written right on her bum.
"Mom, I can't see"
Momma's little girl. She puts up with all the wierd things I do to her.
Since she was about 2 months old or probably even younger she would copy me when I stuck my tongue out. I thought I was teaching her but now that's all she does. She has some tongue action going on all the time it's actually pretty darn cute.
I love being a mom and love my little Jules so much; spit up and all.

Trying to Sit

They say you can use the Boppy pillow to teach babies to sit. Here I am seeing if it works...
At first it seems to be working
Oops! What happened?
Here I am trying to help her up but she just latched on to my finger. Maybe she's hungry.
