I know that I am a little excessive when it comes to Lylah wearing bows. Anytime we leave the house I usually put a bow or flower on her head. I know that I have put huge ones on her, but that is not an everyday thing. My point of this blog is that anytime she doesn't have a bow on people always mistake her for a boy and I hate that. Nothing against you moms with boys, but I have a daughter not a son. I know that is silly, but when she is wearing pink I figure that would give it away that she is a girl, but obviously NOT. So there you have it. I have been wanting to get that out because I love when Lylah has bows on... thats all.

So lately Lylah is obsessed with Sean's necklaces. I don't wear them very much anymore because Child + Jewelry = Bad News. Well Sean's necklaces are really simple just one chain and something at the bottom of the chain. Lylah will start putting it in her mouth and the minute he takes it away she starts screaming bloody murder. So the other morning when he was changing her she saw it and he took it off and put it away. Well she starts crying so what does he do? Yes, it is what you all are thinking he takes it out of the drawer and tries to give it to her and then of course the mean mom I am says "No Ma'am" and doesn't let him do it. See that already shows you that he is going to give her whatever she wants.

Lions and Tigers and Bears.... oh my!

Last Wednesday we decided to head to Ft. Worth to check out the Zoo. We have never been since we lived here and since it was half price Wednesday we thought lets go. It was a nice little family outing and we went early in the morning so the weather was awesome. Lylah didn't care too much and probably didn't even notice the animals. She is perfectly happy with her dog at home!

These were African Elephants that throw mud on themselves. All four were trying to come through the entrance all at the same time

Sweet little deer just chillin in the bamboo trees

She is for sure a daddy's girl! Sean just loves her to pieces. I asked him the other day if he wished we would have had a boy and his reply was "No, I love my little girl".

The zebras were so close to the fence, they were really beautiful

Pumpkin Lover

Today we decided to take Lylah to a small little Pumpkin Patch in Rockwall to pick out a couple pumpkins. I was so excited and then when we got there I realized I forgot to bring the camera. Sad I really wanted to get a picture of Lylah for the first time with all the pumpkins around her. Sean got a cute one on his phone, but we haven't figured out yet how to put that on our computer. So when we got home I set them outside and took a couple of pictures. She loved looking at them and to my surprise didn't try to put her mouth on them. Every now and then she would look up for a split second and I would caught one or two good ones out of like 15 or so.

Presenting our little Pumpkin lover Lylah.... I love the little out fit Sean got her a few weeks ago.

4 generations

So I just had to post this because I love this picture. My nan, my mom's mom, is getting on up there in age and not doing so well. She is in a nursing home where my mom works at so when I go home I try to stop by for a visit. I have been once before with Lylah, but forgot the camera and this time I remembered it YAY!! So here is my nan (81), my mom (59), me (26), Lylah (5 months at the time). One thing that has been hard about seeing my nan this way is that I remember her when she was active and independent, but as she has gotten older things have obviously changed. I love her so much and I have loved being around her growing up. She taught me how to paint many things, she hates when I smell things before I eat them, crack my soda can or fidget with things. Oh and I was the only grandchild that she ever spanked, not sure why I am bragging about that, but I guess I was a handful. Love ya Nan!

Half a year old

I can't believe Lylah is already 6 months old. She is growing like a weed and getting more fun everyday! We love her to pieces and couldn't imagine life without her.
Here are a few things she can do:

Sit up by herself
Finally likes her tummy some
Always wakes up on her tummy
Pushes up on her knees (a little)
Loves Loves Oatmeal Cereal
Has tried Peas, Squash, loves Sweet Potatoes, hates Carrots, bananas, and loves peaches.
Takes two two hour naps
Still loves Abby
Has to always be looking at her daddy
Makes lots of noises especially when playing with toys
Loves being in her big girl stoller and going for walks
Loves bath time/water
Went to the Zoo for the first time
Went to her first football game

Splish Splash

So none of this is really in order of events, but before the Independence Day Party we decided to take a little swim. The boys (Sean, Luis, Dan and Spencer) had fun flying into the pool trying to catch a football while the girls played with the little ones! Both Lylah and Kylee seemed to like the water and loved having everyone's attention. They are such good babies for a little while we were able to lay them down on some towels and they just played with their toys. Here are some pics


Back to our Vegas trip! So while we were there Natalia and Luis invited us and a few others to a Brazilian Independence Day! They are always to creative and thinking up things to do. We all wore green and yellow and all pitched in on decorating. Natalia is awesome and literally spent all day preparing food for our party. During the party we had a Samba dance lesson and you had to be there because it was pretty dang funny! Does anyone remember her website? (haha)

The Brazilian Prince!!

We were so glad that my friends Bethany and Doug were able to come also

In the meantime....

So as most of you know I quit working at Buckle a month before Lylah was due and have been at home with her since. Well starting September 10 I went back part time. I work Wednesdays when Sean is off and Fridays and Saturdays. I do like Buckle and what I do but I am so sad to be away from Baby Lylah. The time while she is little is so precious and I love watching her grow and do new things each day. This is just a temporary thing, but it is so hard. My goal is to recruit a few more people under me for Scentsy and really get that going. My team is doing great and I love their enthusiasm about the product I just need people that love Scentsy. If any of you know someone who is interested let me know. NO, they don't have to be a salesman, just love the product! Anyone can do it, even if it is just to supply yourself with the product! So what I really wanted to get at is how busy life is at the moment. When I am not working, I am home cleaning and being with Lylah! But it is always something, which I love I just wish life would slow down just a little!

P.S. I hate when Sean is out of town! Hurry and come home we already miss you dang it!
