These past couple weeks I have been browsing DIY blogs like crazy! I found some super cute stuff I've made/going to make. When I make stuff, I always have that proud moment for myself after it's complete! It makes me feel so good that I did it and didn't just buy it from the store. So here is a couple of the projects I have completed...

I made this camera strap cover for my sister and I think it turned out pretty cute!

My beautiful flower! I also made another one that is pink with a black flower for Laynie's room

Our baby girl is getting so big, so today while Jeff was at Physio, I got the guts to finally get Laynie's ear's pierced!!! I wanted to get them done a couple months ago but couldn't face myself to do it and put her through the pain. So today I finally did and of course she cried pretty good but got over it within a mintue. I think they look adorable on her and when I surprised Jeff, he loved them!!! So here is our happy girl with a little "bling" to go with her cute face!

See, look how happy she is!!!

This is what I live for.


Our little water baby

We finally took our baby girl swimming!!! I have been wanting to for the past month or so and we finally got some friends together and all went! Laynie did so good! She never fussed or cried and we even put her under the water 4 times! She was such a good girl! We were going to borrow a swimsuit from a friend of mine for Laynie, but luckily we found the cutest little swimsuit at the mall right before we went! So here are the lack of pictures we got because everytime we turned the camera on it would fog up seconds later! Oh well at least we got some and besides, we had a ton of fun!!!

the gang (except Jeff. He's taking the picture!)

So hungry after swimming!


She's getting so big!

So yesterday we took Laynie to get her first shots! Ya we are a little late, but better late than never right? The first shot they did, she didn't even cry! She just sat there wondering what had just happened! Then the second and third she cried but was over it within one minute after a few cuddles from daddy and mommy! We then took her to the pediatrician for a check up appointment to see how well she is doing with her weight gain. She is now 4 months old (where has the time gone!?) and weighs 14lbs. 5oz. and a big 25in. long!!! That puts her in the 75 percentile with her weight and last check up she was only in the 45 percentile! I'm so glad she is growing so well! She has her little rolls that I LOVE to death and I think her legs are pretty cute too with the thigh roll :) Her hair is getting really long but unfortunately it has "thinned" a little lol poor girl, but hoping it'll thicken out soon! She's such a blessing in mine and Jeff's life! And back to this post, how the song says, "Never Grow Up", well it's too late, she's already on her way!


When I was little I wore this sailor dress...

And now my baby girl can!!!!

This is what I live for :)


New Year!

It's a new year and I'm positive it is going to be GREAT!! With baby Laynie in our lives now, there is nothing but good in the future! She is getting so big and learning so much! She is now rolling over both ways, grabbing her toys, jumping in the Jumperoo, giggling(only when she wants to), smiling so much, and the one I am loving-Sleeping so good at night! We put her to bed around 9:30 now and she'll sleep till 2:30-4:00 and back to bed she goes (within 15mins that is) till 7:30 or so. When I'm really tired we fall asleep together after that till 9:30! She is such a good baby and we are so blessed! On Monday she gets her first shots! I'm not to thrilled, that's why I have been putting it off. But it needs to get done and then we will take her for her check-up with the Pediatrician to see how she's doing. I'm sure it'll go really good! We were going to get her ears pierced that day too, but I figure the shots are good for one day! Jeff's elbow is healing up very well and he'll start physio right away. Hopefully back to work it is sometime in February! I've been enjoying every minute of him being home with us! It's nice to have someone to talk to all day and having him around to hang out with! We have just been pretty lazy ha watching movies, playing PS3 (yes I will play with him ha), playing with Laynie, and our newest thing-Watching George Lopez(the t.v. show) And if you have never watched it, DO IT!!! It's so funny! We use to watch Reba all the time and once we were done all those seasons we missed it! But now we have George Lopez and it's just as funny! This year is going to be eventful (we hope) Jeff's wanting to start school in the fall and we have been talking about where he should go. We also would need to sell the house to make that happen, even if it was in Lethbridge, I would rather live in the city and rent. So we're crossing our fingers, that for when we do need to sell it'll happen! Cross your fingers! Hope everyones holidays were fun and a Happy New Year to you all!
