It's that time of year again...

for Christmas Cards!!!
I get so excited to coordinate our family and take pictures for our Christmas Card. The last few years have been to easy to coordinate as it was just hubby and I *the dogs didn't need accessories*. Now, we have a way cute baby girl with a way cute jammie outfit that I can't seem to coordinate with. Not that it really matters...

Hopefully we will be able to get a couple good ones so that we can have a card with more than one picture, such as They have so many to choose from, I am not sure what we are going to end up doing. Here are some of my favorites:

I can't show you what I am really going to choose, but these were some of the contenders. We will be taking our picture in front of the tree this year *I'm hoping* with coordinating jammes! HOPE IT WORKS OUT! BTW-I just spent several minutes going through the Christmas Card basket. I looked at all the old cards and who they were from. It is fun looking at the kids from last year and knowing how big they are now. Can't wait to add this year's cards to the basket! Go here to browse the Christmas Cards-can't wait for you to show up in my basket.

A whole month has passed...

Elsie is 6 months old today! Where has time gone??

She is sitting up pretty well (as the picture shows)
She has 2 teeth on the bottom (which you can see in the pic as well)
She is generally a VERY happy baby.
She has been getting up 3/4 times a night still. (I'm ready for this to be over)
She pulled up on her daddy and I a couple of times last night. (Is she really this big?)

I am absolutely loving being her mommy!!! Elsie and I have had lots of bonding time with Andrew being gone on a couple trips in the past month.

5 months

Our sweet baby girl is 5 months already!!! Time sure does fly...I kinda thought people were crazy when they told us this, but boy were they right.
Elsie is developing quite the personality. She loves to roll all over the floor. She has started scooting. She crawls by getting her hands and knees then falling to her chest and getting back up again. She will sit with assistance but would much rather be moving on the floor. She can definitely get where she wants to go. She loves her Little People Zoo and toys that make music and light up. She will sit on my lap and cuddle for some Baby Noah. I also have a couple baby apps on my phone and she will watch and smile at them.

She will belly laugh when daddy plays with her. She is just so much fun!! She is now eating cereal in the morning and a veggie in the evening. So far she has had butternut squash, carrots, peas and avacados. She is still nursing 4-5 times a day. She had been getting up 3-4 times at night, but only got up once last night. We have no just go with the flow.

We survived our first weekend without dadddy while he was in China. He will be going back in Oct. and we will be alone for a week. I already have a few dinner dates lined up, so we will stay busy.

enough about us. I am loving being a mommy and life in good on Aplomado Dr:)

Labor day weekend

Elsie and I had a great weekend. Andrew was in china for work, so
Elsie and I headed camping with my family.

We took a short break from Camping to visit my dear friend, Kayla and her daughter emmalyn.

Yes, in the first few pics we are wearing tanks and shorts and by the end of the weekend we needed pants and sweatshirts:-)

Yesterday we spent some time outside...Elsie loves to be outside! We pulled out a blanket, a few toys and set up shop in the front yard.
