I have posted too many pictures of the last four months. Kelly is packing for Doha Qatar right now. He leaves pretty soon and will return the beginning of December. I hope to be more regular in my blogging since he wants a picture of Daphne everyday. Safe travels my dear. We will really miss you.
August is actually not as hot as July. Anyway, we spent the first week of it in Las Cruces, which is the best kind of vacation for me. Daphne has lots of family to entertain her and I have all sorts of freedom to take off. Kelly enjoyed seeing his parents and helping his dad around the yard. Karl had a big scare when he got over heated and passed out. We didn't take any pictures! The pictures I have are from Cami.
She thinks Kelly's phone is hers...his is from like 1999.
If I ever open the fridge with Daphne inthe room, she makes a run for it to get the grape drawer open. She loves grapes and can even pick them off the vine herself.
The big family event was Alyssa's baby blessing. It was fun to have everyone there!
My sisters are hot, don't you think? So are my sisters-in-law. For some reason I don't have any pictures of them!
this guy is single and looking to marry!
We didn't do much in July but the day-to-day things. We left the end of the month for NM. Here are some random pictures of July
She likes to take her "tat" everywhere. Kelly bought her another one just in case we lose this one.
This is cool-sequence of photos when she stands up and pushes while walking for the first time
Can't get enough of greycoat
Like I said-little messes. she was even eating the raw oats!
Officially clapping hands!
Lots of pictures because it includes our little girl's first birthday party. It combined with Kelly's birthday and it was a great excuse to finally get friends over for a BBQ.
I competed in my first sprint triathlon in June. It was really fun! I want to do another one.
Kelly got a grill for his first real Father's Day-we've really enjoyed using it.
Daphne the queen of messes. For any of who wonder what this mom does all day-cleans up after Daph (we play a little too. )
And we go swimming
Which is great for wearing kids out
And eat lots of watermelon in GA
Happy Birthday little Daphne! celebrating at Monkey Joe's
First scooter from Grandma Wood
I completely weaned her a week or so after her 1st birthday. FREEDOM! Though, I miss my nursing appetite and energy expenditure
Miss Carrot-likes to chew on carrots especially when she gets a new tooth
I caught her getting into her birthday presents...
Happy First Birthday-right after she wakes up
Playing with her toys-she does this almost every morning for about 30-45 minutes. We change her and give her milk and she's set to play...highly recommend this. This is usually when I work out since Kelly is still home.
After she ate breakfast, we went on a bike ride to the elementary school nearby to swing, another Daphne favorite
Playing at Monkey joe's on her birthday
Her birthday meal favorites: beans, avocado, cheese, watermelon, and milk
Joint party for Kelly and daphne: Hello Kitty theme!
Got this recipe online
Had lots of fun decorating
Another favorite: chasing "tat"
Swimming at the party
Carter and his Dad-neighbors and friends
The Bells-god friends from church
Miss Party girl was not too happy that night. She didn't want to eat anything but watermelon and cried when someone else at it until she got it.
Chocolate chip cake for Kelly and Hello Kitty for daphne
And she also cried when it was her turn to do the pinata
Hasn't had candy yet so we gave it to friends
After about 30 minutes of refusing to eat her cake, she finally tried it and thoroughly enjoyed it!
