Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! 

Tim had to work today so Adella and I went up to the firehouse to celebrate Thanksgiving with everyone on Tim’s shift and their families. The food was AMAZING, the best Thanksgiving dinner I have ever had. It was so nice to relax on a lazy boy and watch all of them cook and clean, also had a bunch of babysitters so I was really able to relax. This was probably the best way to spend a holiday!

It was a hectic day though, and I apologize for not being able to talk to anyone today. Between baking pies and getting the both of us ready to drive an hour an a half (Adella HATES her carseat, driving anywhere is a nightmare) I barely had a minute to do anything. But we made it up there with out hitting much traffic, and Adella did OK in the car… the ride home was a different story. I was able to feed her in the dorm at the firehouse, in another awesome lazy boy, and she even napped through the bell going off a few times!

Tomorrow we will be spending the day packing and trying to calm Lexi down, as I am getting so nervous about flying! But we are all excited to head off to Hawaii. This will probably be the last post for a couple weeks, so this is why I am staying up WAY past my bedtime to get a few pictures out to everyone. I wish I would have remembered to get pictures of our spread, but I think with my tummy in times of hunger…

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! 

This is Logan, 10 months, getting a ride on the fancy bike!

Countdown to Hawaii!!!

We’ve got one more week till we’re off on our first family vacation to Hawaii. We’re a little concerned about flying with Adella, so if any one has any tips, please let us know! I plan to feed her on the way up and down to help pop her ears. 

Tim has been working a lot lately with all the wild fires we are having here, so we are both in need of some time away! I was stuck at home for a few days because Lani chewed thru her car seat, you can imagine how crazy I was going being stuck at home while Tim was at work.

Adella is starting to laugh more, our faces hurt by the end of the day from smiling so much, and she has really started to find her voice. She loves playing with rattles and sticks everything in her mouth, including her thumb. But it helps soothe her back to sleep at night! Here are a few pictures from last week.

She Laughs!!

Adella Laughed, really laughed, for the first time today!! Not just a gasp with a smile, but real chuckles!! It was the cutest thing and I can’t wait for more!! Unfortunately Tim is at work for three days, so we’ll be working on those chuckles for when he gets home.


This is her new activity gym that she loves, and it gives us a few minutes to get things done.

3 Months

Adella is three months old!! The last three months have gone by so quickly, and yet it seems like she has always been with us. We had a doc appointment yesterday and she weighed in at 12 pounds 10 ounces and 24 1/2 inches long. She is doing really well at supporting her head and will be sitting up in no time. She talks all the time, and tries so hard to communicate with us, she uses her whole body to smile and talk. She can now swat at toys and grasp them when held in front of her and she is fascinated with everything we see on our daily walks. Here are a few pics of her during tummy time, it’s the cutest thing to watch her look at herself in the mirror when we do this!
