Happy Birthday to my Troy!!

Happy 33rd Birthday to the best Daddy, husband and best friend in the world!

The stars were aligned when you came into this world. I'm so proud of the person you are and the roles that you take on - you take very good care of us. We are all very lucky that you are you.
We love you very much and hope you have a wonderful Birthday

Our "6" month baby

Yesterday, Westyn turned 6 months old!!! I can't believe it and let me tell you, she has grown up over night. We celebrated by doing what else... going out to El T's and putting her in the high chair for the first time with the floppy seat (which I highly recommend). She did great and really enjoyed sitting in her own chair and having dinner with us. She played with her toys the whole time but kept throwing them on the floor which I think may have been on purpose.

When I say she has grown up overnight I truly mean it......

*She is thisclose to crawling

*She loves to stand up and dance around, her feet are always moving.

*She sleeps through the night, going to bed at 7:30 and waking between 5-6am

*Loves baby food - we have given her cereal, carrots, beans, peas, sweet potatoes, pears, prunes, apples, bananas and will soon move on to level 2 foods.

*She is becoming very aware of my breasts and is always clawing at them when she wants to either eat or just wants to cuddle. She gets so excited she starts to snort - so funny. Not sure whats going to happen in months to come when she gets stronger.

*She has 1 tooth coming through and it's just popping out of the gums now - her toothy smile is the best.

*She is very aware of little people, either babies or toddlers. Yesterday Misty and Henry came over and Henry and Westyn were actually playing together; makes for some great entertainment. She loves her cousin Campbell and gets so excited when she see her.

*In the last day or so she has started to laugh out loud - she was a tough one for a while as Troy and I tried everything to get her to laugh. She was tickling Henry's feet yesterday and starting laughing, it was pretty cute.

*Lastly, she now completely recognizes people and will actually reach for them. She does this with my Mom and Troy and I.

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things but I will post more on Monday after her 6-month Dr. appointment.

Happy Birthday to our little Leah

Yes our little (soon to be slightly bigger) Leah is turning the big '30' today and we are celebrating her tonight with a Moroccan feast in Seattle.


May this year be the best one yet (I have a feeling it will be)

naked bum

I don't think there is anything cuter these days than Westyn's bum..... is that weird? She has got the cutest bubble bottom I have ever seen. She loves to spend time naked and usually fights me once our little play session is over when I try to put her diaper back on.

My one and only Love

Happy Anniversary Troy!
I would never want to live my life with any other person than you. You are my partner, my biggest supporter, the best Daddy ever & the most amazing 'Man' I could ever ask for. Our wedding day 3 years ago was the most amazing day of my life and I can't wait to spend eternity with you.

I definitely lucked out when you proposed to me. I would have never thought in a million years that I would be married to Troy of "Troy and Daves".

I Love You Sugee!
