What we have been up to....

As my child gets more and more active I post less and less...wonder why!!? She is continuing to grow like a little weed. She is just a joy to have around the house...keeps us laughing!

Let's see what has happened since we wrote last....we went swimming at Chelsea's house and she loved it. It was a little chilly outside still...this June is nothing like last. Last year nearly everyday in June was above 100 degrees, this year it is one of the wetest in history. We are quite water-logged now too with all of the rain and storms we have had for the past 3 days. There are many people around us that have gotten flooded out. We are very fortunate.

I have several friends who are about to or have had their babies over the past couple of weeks. I am not sure if there is an increased number of people right now that are pregnant or if all of my friends are just at that age, but it is so neat to see all of the little additions to the world! I love babies! The latest are Max Blackwell (Dee and Jeff) and Clayton Crum (Krista and Brian). There will be more in the next month....I know 3 that are due to deliver in July and early August.

I guess the most exciting thing that we have done lately is getting ready for VBS. I am helping Krista with our family night Wednesday night and also decorating her room. Brice will be assisting her with teaching. It will be a lot of fun but it is so much work!

Rachel has decided that she enjoys feeding herself. We have been giving her little finger foods. She likes her fruit puffs and I started giving her Cheerios this past week which she LOVES...I am afraid that she will turn into a Cheerio! Well, yesterday she decided that she wanted to feed herself peas too. That was a mess to say the least! I just decided to let her explore and feel the food and see what she did. The clean up was a lot of fun! She is just so curious and busy these days. Still not crawling but we have a tooth!

We were bored!

Okay, so Rachel and I were bored today so we decided to do a 7 month photo shoot. So maybe I was a little more excited about it than she was...o'well...she's so much fun!!! Here are some of them that we the way, I took the annoying music off of the slide show I did not too long ago!!!

7 months old

So much has happened since my last blog. My friend, Christy had Adison on June 5th at 2:04 in the morning and we were there to see her right after she was born! She is a cutie!!!! Christy was having issues with headaches and ended up having really high blood pressure and had to be put on medication yesterday but is feeling much better and I am so glad!

Today, Rachel is 7 months old!!!! I know I say this every time I post something about her turning another month old, but it just doesn't seem real that she is 7 months old!!! I just can't get over how fast time has gone by. I love that little girl more than life itself and she just gets more fun by the day. She is still a very happy baby and seems to be enjoying life. She has found her voice and is very vocal. She is spitting now, fun fun and squeels with excitement ALL OF THE TIME!!! She really likes to do this in restaurants!

Today was finished our last sign and sing class. Rachel really enjoys interacting with the other children and seems to have a good time. She isn't signing anything yet, but we practice everyday!!!

Rachel is eating all kinds of things!! She loves her new little snacks and is doing really well trying to pick up small things with her chubby little fingers! She is such a doll. I can just see her little brain working when she concentrates on something. Yesterday she had a real banana and loved it but was not so crazy about real mashed potatoes!! She isn't crawling yet but she sure is trying!!! She gets around by scooting backwards and rolling. It won't be long before she is moving all around the place! Oh, and still no teeth yet either!!

She is getting to be so much fun! She has really started learning how to throw a fit which isn't great fun, but I figured it would happen sooner or later!! She is very impatient when it comes to food and has started screaming when she isn't held. She is usually a very content baby but I think that her teething makes her not feel very good and she wants someone all of the time. I have started firmly telling her no and she laughs...not good!!! I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...I want a sweet child!!!

Fun Stuff!!

Here are pictures from Rachel's 6 month photo session!

Okay, funny story!!! Last night we were trying to give Rachel a bath and before we went she was pretty fussy. Her bath always makes her happy! Daddy went and got the tub filled while I took her clothes off her, got know, the usual. Anyway, Rachel was splashing and taking a bath and Brice and I were having a discussion about how he felt that I should just get Rachel in the tub and out instead of letting her play (he was joking, by the way). Then we had a debate about whether or not he played in the tub as a child....HE that confirmed by his mom! :) Anyway, about that time, Rachel decides to poop in the tub!!! So, I was like, well, I haven't even started bathing her yet, so we have to clean that out. So, I picked up Rachel (remember she is all wet) and was holding her kinda funny (bottom up in the air). While Daddy was cleaning out the tub (while telling me his reasoning for getting Rachel in and out of the tub without playing...oh brother...) Rachel decided that she wasn't finished with her job. I was hollering, "Brice, quick lift up the toilet seat!!!!" He did and well, our efforts didn't pay landed on the side of the toilet! BIG MESS!! So, after Brice got finished cleaning the tub, he then had to clean the toilet! In the meantime, Rachel decides that she also had to pee....ALL OVER ME!!! What a fun time we had in the bathtub! We put her back in the tub and I immediately began washing her and she was out in 5 minutes!! As I was wrapping her up in her towel she was grinning.....WHAT A STINKER!!!
