Hale Center Theater

This week we were so lucky to be able to get away for an evening to go see The Christmas Carol play at Hale Center Theater. We went with my side of the family and we had such an amazing time! The play was sooooo GOOD, it exceeded both mine and Brad's expectations. After the play we went to eat at the new restaurant in Orem called Pirate Isand! It is actually a pretty cool place. Very good place for a fun family dinner! We missed our little Lily, but it was sure nice to go out with the adults :) Thanks Mom and Dad for a wonderful evening!!

Yes we have a four month old!

Lily is four months old!! (actually 4 1/2) I cannot believe how fast the time has flown...but I say that every time! Lily is at such a fun age. We are constantly getting a kick out of her. She is such a happy baby and I am so glad for that. Lily is up to sooo many new things...a few of them are: grabbing toys on her own and playing, she puts EVERYTHING in her mouth, she is a great little supported sitter, laughing/giggling, she is a TALKER...she goes on and on making new noises it is hilarious, Lily sleeps all through the night..her last feeding is at 9 pm then she doesnt eat again until 5 or 6!! Lily is also teething which makes her a little drool monster on top of her spitting up....yes she still spits up A LOT but the doc gave me the green light on rice cereal so I am hoping the cereal will help her with that!


12 lbs 14 oz 50th percentile
24 1/2 inches long 75th percentile....yes she is still a little tall :)

we love you Lily!!

It's never to late to express the things you are thankful for...right!? I figure it hasnt quite been a week since Thanksgiving so I am still doing ok. We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving this year. We enjoyed some great...and I mean GREAT food and some good ole fashioned family time. I seriously stuffed myself to the brim, but I dont feel guilty :) Lily sat right there at the table with us and she slept through the whole feast. Next year hopefully she will be covered in mashed potatoes!

* I am so grateful for my daughter. She is my ray of sunshine. I am thankful that I had such a healthy pregnancy and that she made it here safe and sound. I am so grateful for her health and her beautiful smiling face. She turns any bad day into a good one. I love you Lily Rae!

* I love love love my husband. He is the most positive force in my life and I am so thankful for that. Love you forever Bradley.

* I am so grateful for our jobs. Especially at a time like this. We both have jobs we enjoy and I feel so lucky that we both can provide for our little family.

* I am thankful for my moms, dads, brothers, sisters,....etc ALL of you mean the world to me. Thank You for everything you do or have done for us. It DOES NOT go unnoticed.

Lily had a wonderful first Halloween! Brad had been gone all week in Connecticut and we were so excited that he made it back in time to partake in the festivities. Pumpkin carving was a blast and we had so much fun dressing up! Lily went trick or treating to her grandparents and she had so much fun :)

12 weeks!

PHEW!! We are officially done counting Lily's age in weeks! I can't beleive our little girl is 3 months the time has really flown. I still wake up every morning and thank God that this sweet angel is mine. She is our little ray of sunshine! What is Lily up to? Well she is smiling like crazy and she even has started to giggle, she is laying on her tummy a lot more and holding her head up so good, she sleeps anywhere from 6-8 hours straight at night, she absolutely loves to watch TV it is so funny ( we need to buy her some baby einsteins), Lily has started making these really high pitched cute, she is loving her toys more and more everyday, I have started reading books to her and she just loves it!! I am not sure of her stats at this point, she wont go to the doctor until her four month appt. So we will have to wait until then. These pics are from her 10 wk photo shoot.

Baby Lily's Blessing

Lily Rae was blessed on Sunday October 25. The blessing was absolutely amazing! My brother Josh performed the blessing and he did such a beautiful job. We are so glad that he accepted the task :) Lily was such a good girl and quite the trooper. She looked so pretty in the dress Grandma K bought her. Thanks to all who came and supported our little family, it means so much to us. Also thanks to my parents for hosting...I know it was a lot of work and everything looked so beautiful!!

8 weeks...kind of!

Little Lily bug is actually 9 weeks old as of yesterday. I waited to post so that I could put her stats up. Lily is growing and changing like crazy!! I swear she hit 8 weeks and all of these sudden changes started occuring. She smiles at her mommy and daddy when she sees them, she is cooing like crazy, she loves to lay on her blanket and play with her toys ( well look at her toys), she loves to suck on her fingers, she sticks out her tongue ALL the time, she can stare at the ceiling fan for a very long time ( thats how I get ready in the mornings), she has become a little splashing machine in the tub it is so much fun to watch! I still feed her once in the middle of the night, but she is getting better and better. We love our sweet girl soooo much and I dont know what we ever did without her! She is our everything. Lily also has a little bit of an attitude....when she is hungry, she is HUNGRY and she doesnt want to wait! She doesnt like to stop in the middle to burp either. My mom calls her "little spunky" and she is RIGHT ON. What can I say though, we love her little spunky personality!!

at nine weeks Lily weighs: 10 lbs 2 oz ( 50th percentile)
height: 23 inches long ( 90th percentile)

Yep! pretty sure she is going to be tall like her daddy!!

first stroller ride!

Lily had her two week doctor appointment on Wednesday! She is doing absolutely wonderful, her weight is up to 7 pounds already and she has grown and inch in length putting her at 19 inches long. The doctor let me know that I need to wait until she is four weeks old to take her out in public places around other people. He did however, tell me it was ok to take her on walks! This was so exciting for me because it would give us a chance to get out and get a little fresh air. We couldnt go too far since I am still recovering, but we had a great 30 min walk around the neighborhood. She absolutely loved it! She was wide eyed the whole time :) I am hoping to make it a daily thing atleast until the weather gets too cool.
