Leila: seven months old!

SEVEN. MONTHS. OLD. Holy moly! Every day she shows more of what a little person she is growing up to be! She is feisty, is not afraid to let us know if she doesn't like something, and has a good pair of lungs!

Clothes: 6 - 9 months, 12 month pajamas
Diaper: size 3

Some nicknames we have for her are: Pretty much just "leggy" 
Heath issues: Just lingering winter cold symptoms, nothing too serious. She did get her two bottom teeth, and man oh man, she is a rough teether. The boys were never super bothered by teething, but she is a whole different story! 
Sleep: She goes to bed around 6:30 and wakes up around 8:00 am. She takes one long nap during the day!
Diet: Nursing 95% of the time, and some baby purees the other 5% of the time!
Baby gear love: Her swing!
Likes: She LOVES her bunny and Santa brought her a new unicorn, and she loves that now too. 
Dislikes: Being cold, hungry, or dirty! <---- same as every month! She has also developed a dislike for being in her carseat - oh, what fun!! 
Milestones: She got her first two teeth and she is up and rocking on all fours. She loves to try and rock forward, which results in a painful face plant - then she gets really sad! 

Happy seven months, sweetness!

A Christmas Photo Story: 2015

Merry Christmas!

He doesn't need presents to make him happy....

Just puppies! (yes, that is a real dog!)

Chubby ankles and baby moccs....

She was curious about those ears!

So excited to find out that Santa brought him a Hulkbuster, something he has been asking for for over a year!


Playing hide and seek at the end of the night with cousin Harlow.... dirty floors, stuffed tummies, and full hearts!

Family Photos: 2015

This year we had our lovely neighbor and friend Taylor of Taylor Meyer Photography take our pictures! I am honestly shocked that she got any good ones. Luke did not want to smile...at all (such a three-nager), Aiden was trying to run up a hill, and Leila was cold and crying the majority of the time. Somehow, by a miracle talent, she got some amazing shots! 

We love our photos! Thank you Taylor!

Christmas Family Room: 2015

The past few months have been non-stop craziness! I was out of town twice, once in September and once in October and I feel like I have been slacking on my projects and decorating. For some reason, it took a lot of effort for me to get my decorations up, and usually I am chomping at the bit to get the up! I think the stress of being out of the house for 25 hours a week finally got to me. I finally bought my poinsettias today so I thought I would share some pictures of our holiday family room!

You can see our previous holiday decor here and here!

Merry Christmas from our family room to yours! 

If you have any questions about where I got anything, feel free to comment or e-mail me! 

I am also busy working on finishing up a few things in our laundry room. I still have to tile that bad boy, but I am going to try and convince my brother to help me, it is little, so I hope he will do it! I am also trying to hurry up and finish Luke's third year book! 

I will be back tomorrow to post our family pictures for 2015!

Leila: six months old!

How is this little girl a half of a year old already?! Time has been FLYING and I just want it to slow down! Sometimes I feel like she is so much older than she is because she sleeps so well!

November 29th, 2015

Clothes: 6 - 9 months
Diaper: size 3
Height: TBD
Weight: TBD

Some nicknames we have for her are: Leil-y, Leggy, Leggy-buggy
Heath issues: Poor girl got her first real cold this month that Aiden brough home from school. Our whole house got it. Hers turned in to an ear infection so she has been on antibiotics for the last week! 
Sleep: Her bed time is at 7:00 p.m. and she wakes up around 8 a.m. Some days she takes one nap and others she takes two! 
Diet: Mostly nursing. She eats some baby food but has not been super interested because of her sickness. Mangos are a no go, they caused her to have an AWFUL diaper rash! 
Baby gear love: Her jumper, her bumbo (although these things cause quite the diaper explosions), and her swing! 
Likes: She is pretty happy, I think she likes almost everything and everyone! 
Dislikes: Being cold, hungry, or dirty! <---- same as last month!

This month was her first Thanksgiving and since we were all sick and I am mom of the year, I don't have any pictures other than one, and it is not a good one!

Happy half-year Leggy Buggy!!
