Happy Halloween

We had such a fun Halloween! We started off the day going to the Alliance Air show with some friends, Ashley and her family, and Angie and her family. I am so thankful our kids get along and play well together! Even though Rilan was a toot most of the time and it was SO hot we still had lots of fun.

 I still have no clue how you fly a airplane upside down!!


We came home and rested for a bit and then it was time to get ready to go Trick-or-Treating. I ended up taking Rilan and Zoey up and down our street while Dax handed out candy, and then Rilan wanted to come back and hand out candy with us. I had no problem with that, less candy in our house to deal with! ha

Rilan is so into Wall-E right now. So he wanted to be the captain that is on the space ship. He saw this costume at Target and came up with it himself! 
Zoey was a sweet little candy corn. I didn't really want to get a traditional Halloween costume for her for some reason, so I got the tutu and she will be able to wear it for a long time! And we borrowed the baby legs from Ava! Isn't she the cutest candy corn you have ever seen!? ha
Daddy, Captain, and Candy Corn! Dax looks thrilled doesn't he?! ha

.Zoey-9 months.

Its that time again, I can't believe another month has gone by already. I am a day late posting because I wanted to wait until after Zoey's 9 month well-check this afternoon. Just when I think I can't enjoy being a mom more, I do. I feel so very blessed that I was chosen to be the Mom for Rilan and Zoey.


Zoey at 9 months you:
  • You weigh 17.5 pounds.
  • You are 26 3/4 in long.
  • You are in a size 3 diaper.
  • You wear 3-6 months for pants usually and a 6-9 or 6-12 month top depending on what brand it is.
  • You are such a good eater. You have 3 meals a day. We are working on adding meat and thicker foods to your diet right now.
  • You take 4-5 bottles a day and have one 8 ounce bottle in the morning and 6 ounces throughout the day. 
  • You usually nap 2-3 times a day depending on how long each nap is. You will sleep anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 to 2.5 hours.
  • You are still sleeping through the night although we had trouble for a few weeks when you had an ear infection.
  • You have now been sick twice. The first time you had bronchitis, the second you had an ear infection.
  • You are crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything! 
  • Once you have pulled up on something you usually try to walk around hanging on to whatever it is.
  • When you crawl and go back into a sitting position you clap for yourself. Its so cute. 
  • You have started talking A LOT here lately. You will say Mama, Dada, and Bubba. You have even said bow twice. (Daddy heard it to back me up!)
  • You love it when Daddy comes home each night.
  • You are so good when we have to go and run errands or whatever. You love looking around and take everything in.
  • You are now older than how long I was pregnant with you. Hard to believe!
 
I apparently forgot to mention in last months post that Zoey loves SheShe (Ashley) and doesn't cry when she hold her! haha



Mommy, Daddy and Bubba love you sweet baby girl.

Fall soccer 2010

Rilan started soccer a few weeks ago. We have only had 2 games because the second was canceled due to rain. He is doing much better than he did last year although I think he would rather play with the kids than play soccer! Oh well he is cute out there and having fun so we don't care! We have lots of time before we need to ever think about taking sports serious! 

Not real sure what he is doing! 

KICK!

Bumble Bees!
Alexia, Issiah, Landree, Austin, Rilan, Jordan, Bobbi, and Anthony

My little cutie and I. I made her a onesie and bow to wear to Rilan's games! I thought it turned out pretty darn cute!
The front says "Soccer Sister" and I added some rhinestones and the back is his number!


8 Months

I am so behind with post I don't think I will ever get caught up!! 

Zoey you are 8 months old now! I can't believe it. We have enjoyed you so much and I can't ever remember what life was like without you. You bring so much joy to our life.

You were so on the move this month it was hard to get a good photo with your sign! You are growing up way too fast!

At 8 months you:
  • You weigh about 17lbs
  • You are in a size 3 diaper
  • You wear 3-6 month bottoms and usually a 3-6 or 6-9 month tops.
  • You sleep through the night most nights. We have an occasional nights that you wake every hour wanting your paci. 
  • You take a bottle 4-5 times a day and usually drink about 6 ounces.
  • You eat 3 times a day. For breakfast you usually have a fruit and oatmeal. For lunch I usually give you a fruit and a veggie. And for dinner you have about 2 jars of veggies. 
  • You LOVE puffs!
  • You mastered crawling very quickly and you are pulling up on everything! You have started walking back and fourth once you are pulled up. I'm not ready for you to walk alone! I need you to be a baby a little longer!
  • You love watching your brother play and you get so excited when you see your Daddy.
  • When you want something or are getting tired you start crying Dadada.. or Mamamama. I love it that you are already calling us Mama and Dada.
  • You are getting lots of hair! I love have a little girls hair to fix! It something I have always prayed I would get to do one day!
  • You eyes are still big and blue. 
  • You aren't crazy about people holding you if its not Mommy or Daddy or Pops, but get better after being around someone for a while.
 (someone decided to eat the sign!)

Love you Baby Girl!

7 Months

Zoey Baby I can't believe you are 7 months old today. Where has the time gone?! I feel like it was only yesterday we were bringing all 5 pounds of your home. You have been such a joy to have around. We all love and adore you so very much. 

  • At 7 months you...
  • You weigh 16.5 lbs.
  • You are 26.5 inches long
  • You wear a size 2 diaper
  • You are fitting into your 3-6 month clothes now unless there is elastic around the legs!! :) Then we need a 6-9mo!
  • You sit up very well and rarely fall over anymore.
  • You are trying so hard to crawl. You can get up on all fours but can't really figure out how to do it yet. You scoot and roll all over the floor though!
  • You are a great eater! You have moved up to the 2nd foods now. The only things you haven't really cared for are mangos and yogurt. 
  • You love watching Rilan play and you laugh and laugh when he talks to you. Its one of the sweetest things ever!
  • We went on our first vacation as a family of 4 to Sea World in San Antonio this past weekend. You were such a trooper!
  • You are getting much better about a nap schedule and you are ready for bed at 8:30 nightly! You sleep all through the night and wake up between 7-8. 

I can't believe how much you have changed over the last 6 months! We love you sweet girl!!
-Mommy

New Design

I had a digital scrapbook kit I have been wanting to use so I though I would give the blog a bit of a makeover! I think I'm ready for fall weather with all the warmer colors I used! I'm so tired of the heat! It's hard trying to let Rilan get all of his energy out and keep him indoors since its way way too hot for Zoey out. I'm ready to be able to have them both outside and enjoy it rather than melting! 
Rilan starts soccer here pretty soon and I am praying for nice weather. Last year we got lucky, it was never too hot or too cold! Hopefully Zoey will enjoy watching him and his friends run around like crazy kicking a ball!
Let me know what you think about the new design!

Play Group

We went to play group for the first time today! I was soo stressed last night about it. Worried about what people would think about me, worried about how Rilan would act....ect! 

I wish I hadn't worried so much, we had a great time! Rilan did so good considering how hard headed he can be! :) Zoey didn't even make a peep the whole time. I just held her or sat her on the floor and she was happy as can be.

Here is my little stinker before we left. I wish I would have gotten a photo of Rilan before we left but oh well. I took ones of him there and not her! 
 Rilan on the balance beam.

A new friend Ashley who told me about the group, daughter Ava. Ashley has a clothing business and makes custom outfits and bows!

Rilan not sure what he is doing!

Thinking about something...

Jumping on the travel tramp.


We had a great time today and looking forward to the next time we get to get together with these ladies and kiddos.

I'd better get back to blogging....

I feel like we have been super busy but thinking back we haven't really been doing much! Guess I'm just trying to keep myself busy making clothes and bows. I'm having such a good time designing stuff for Zoey and a few friends here and there. Even though I don't get nearly enough time to do it I enjoy what time I do have.

We spent one whole week a few weeks ago sick sick. Rilan was running 104 fever for about 7 days. Just when he was starting to feel better I came down with a horrible stomach bug and was running a fever. It only lasted 24 hours but just as I was feeling better Dax got it. My Mom had come up to help us out so we could make sure Rilan didn't give anything to Zoey and somehow Mom and Zoey managed to not get sick!! Soo thankful!

We are all feeling great now and have been trying to stay indoors and keep cool. This has been a RIDICULOUSLY hot summer here in North Texas!! I'm defiantly ready for winter! I don't ever mind the snow especially when we are having weather like this!

Some photos of Zoey and Rilan at her 6 month well check.She checked out healthy and was 15 pounds(22nd percentile) and 25 1/4 inches long(22nd percentile) and her head circumference was 16 3/4(44th percentile). She only had to have 1 shot and she didn't even cry!! I hate having to take Rilan with me to her appointments because it really bothers him to have to watch her get a shot. The last 2 times he has gone and sat in a chair that is right outside the door. He doesn't like seeing his sister get a "boo boo." After I looked up her percentiles I looked up Rilan's. He weights 32 pounds and is in the 3rd percentile! But he is in the 64th percentile for height! Tall and skinny!

Friday we had to run a few errands and it was scortching outside so before we went to get doggy food we stopped in Marble Slab for a cool treat.
 
We went to eat at Chili's Saturday and no one was there so we snapped a few photos of us!
Daddy and his babies!
Mommy and Zoey
I never get photos of me, mostly because I really really dislike the way I look but I thought I'd better have a few before I was really bummed I didn't have any of Zoey and I while she is still a baby.
 
Hope you all have a good week. We are going to enjoy this week and then Rilan is going to go stay with grandparents for a week the following week. I'm going to miss him so much but I know he will have a blast and probably not even realize he is away from his Mommy, Daddy, and Sissy.

Half a year already?!

So I have been in a horrible funk about Zoey being 6 months old already. I didn't even want to write this post just because it makes me so sad. Dax and I had decided that we only wanted to have 2 kids. I guess it just makes me sad to know we won't ever have another baby in our house. But she is growing weather I like it or not. 

We had a good day on Saturday. We ran some errands in the morning getting ready for her photo shoot we were going to do at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. Dax and Rilan ran to pick up something for his dirt bike that is finally running again. Once we all got back to the house we loaded up in the yukon and went to a antique store hoping to find some cute vintage props for the photos, no such luck unless we wanted to spend $1000s!

Even though it was still soo hot out we headed to the gardens and took a few photos until we had a melt down. I got some pretty good photos but I am looking forward to taking more in a few days!
The start of our melt down!

I couldn't not take Rilan's photos! Isn't he cute?!

Zoey at 6 months you:
  • You weight about 15#
  • You still wear a size 2 diaper
  • You still wear some 0-3 month clothes although the 3-6 month are starting to fit much better
  • You have a bottle 4-5 times a day and take 5-8 ounces
  • You eat twice a day, for breakfast you usually have a fruit and oatmeal and for dinner you have a veggie and organic brown rice
  • You have eaten almost all the 1st foods, I haven't found a thing you won't eat
  • You are great at rolling now
  • You started sitting up unsupported a few days before you turned 6 months
  • You are almost always happy
  • You like to spit and blow bubbles, I think you are trying to cut teeth
  • You have the cutest sweetest laugh ever
  • You are still a great sleeper at night, we are working on getting a better schedule for naps!
  • If anything is in your reach, its in your hands.
  • You are very aware of everything around you.
  • We got you a Baby Einstein exersaucer and you love playing in it until you get frustrated with one of the toys and you want out!
 I love you sweet baby girl.
