8 Chompers

So our little baby is almost 10 months old already! She went from 2 teeth to 8 teeth in less than a month! Needless to say it's been a little bit of a crazy month! She's been very fussy and we would go crazy without our Orajel! It's gotten to where I will just cover one side of a Q-tip with Orajel and give it to her to chew on cause I don't know which tooth hurts! I think she may be getting in her molars soon too! Yay for teething!

So you can see here that 6 are all the way in and the two front teeth have finally broken through this week but they are a little harder to see!

Today we wanted to spend some time outside and we decided to take some pictures! Enjoy our beautiful girl!

Lilly has recently begun cruising around on her walker! She is so cute cause when she hits a wall or something, she lifts up the walker to try to push it forward... she's so freaking cute! Love this girl!

2nd Anniversary part 2!

So for Steve and I's anniversary I got us Incubus concert tickets! A lot of people wouldn't ever guess it but Steve and I are rockers deep down! We have been SOO excited for this concert! We are more of the old Incubus fans then their new stuff so we were SO excited when we found out that the concert was promoting their new cd which is completely made up of all of their old favorites!! YAY!!! We had SOO much fun! We ran into some old friends and met some new ones! We were surrounded by some pretty interesting people! I won't tell the stories about them, but I'll just say that when people are extremely intoxicated, barriers like age and fact that you are strangers don't matter any more! Anyway, we had so much fun! It was so nice to get out there and dance to the music and sing at the top of your lungs!! I love my man!

Incubus singing my favorite song by them... Drive!

STELLAR!

2nd Anniversary!

Last Tuesday was Steve and I's 2nd Anniversary! Last year was my turn to plan our anniversary activities and so this year was Steves. I think that maybe since we got married on the luckiest day ever (7/7/07) our anniversary could be cursed or something! If you remember last year, all of my plans went down the drain.. go read it in the archives.. Well, Steve had WONDERFUL plans... they were so sweet! He took Lilly to Matt and Laurens while I got ready. He wasn't ready yet so I expected him to come home and have to get ready and then we would go after that. It took him a while to come back.. I couldn't figure out what he was doing. Finally I got a knock at the door. I went to answer it and it was Steve, looking very handsome! He had two big beautiful flowers... one for each year! He wanted to revisit our first date. It was so sweet! We went Lazer Tagging on our first date so we went there on our anniversary. We walked in and it was COMPLETELY empty. Not a soul was there except the guy that owned the place. It would be really stupid to play a game with just the two of us, so we decied to sit there and wait to see if more people would show up. Meanwhile we called a bunch of people to see if they wanted to come lazer tagging, but we couldn't get anyone to come. The owner got a call saying that he would have a group come in at 9.. it was 8 then. We decided to wait. We had a good time there.. it was actually pretty fun. We talked and ran around.. crackin jokes and giggling... the owner even let us play 3 free games of air hockey! Steve kicked my butt all three times. Finally 9 rolled around... no one showed.. 9:05... no one... 9:10... nada... finally at 9:15 we decided to call it and move on. We went to dinner at Macaroni Grill because Steve thought that on our first date we ate pasta... I had to ruin it for him and tell him that we didn't eat dinner on our first date... and that we didn't have pasta till a few weeks after we had been dating. It was still delicious! Our waiter was very kind! He gave us a cake and gave me a flower... it was very sweet! As for gifts, Steve bought us some really fancy sheets! Which was good cause we were still sleeping on the same nasty target ones that we bought when we were just barely married and completely broke! He got me a few other things too... and I got Steve.... drum roll please...... INCUBUS CONCERT TICKETS! It cost a pretty penny but Steve is really passionate about music and he hasn't been to a show since before I met him. I felt like it would be really good for him to indulge in his passion again! He was very excited about them!

Some Picture:

We were so sad... Nobody wanted to play with us!At Macoroni Grill the table cloth is paper and they have crayons so you can draw on the tables! I like this picture cause you can tell yet another disaster of the night. Steve was putting some balsamic vinegar in the oil for dipping bread when the top came off and balsamic went EVERYWHERE! It was pretty awesome!

Best 4th ever!

I love having the 4th on a Saturday because not only do you have the day off, but you have the whole weekend to celebrate! I didn't have school on Friday but Steve still had to work so we started off our weekend with the Bountiful Rec centers pool...They a have a pirate ship! Sarah's kids had a blast and Lilly and Olivia just loved hanging out in the sun and splashin in the pool. Lilly and I have gone swimming a few times and she just loves the water. We just sit in the shallow end and Lilly splashes and Mommy wishes she could get a tan! Maybe someday.... So anyway, sorry I didn't grab any pictures... I had my camera, but I was too busy playing with little girls and boys to snap some photos. So after that we went to Sarahs house and hung out for a while. When it was time to leave, we ended up standing outside my car for like, 3 minutes.. and in those 3 minutes I was eaten alive by mosquitoes. I'm allergic to them so right now my ankles and calves are REALLY swollen and super itchy. I'm going crazy not to itch them right now.
So the next morning Steve, Lilly and I drove up to Kaysville again to watch their parade. The kids had so much fun! Watching parades with children is SOO much more fun than without. The boys got lots of candy and Lilly got to have a little bit too. She wasn't afraid of the sirens or anything. I did cover her hears though cause I want her to be able to hear things later in life! The best part of the parade by far was that there was a float sponsered by Old Navy. We were at the very end of the parade route and so all the floats either were out of candy by the time they got to us, or realizing they had way more than they needed and throwing it out like crazy! Well the Old Navy float were giving out bouncy balls and apparently they only had one left. A lady walked up to Steve holding Lilly and said "This is the last bouncy ball and I'm giving it to your daughter because she is wearing an Old Navy dress!" We thought it was seriously the coolest thing ever!! I'm going to keep that bouncy ball forever!

Getting ready for the parade to begin!

The girls!
My baby and me!

Eating candy! I love patriotism!

Taco Time beads!

"The" Bouncy Ball!

So after the parade we went home for lunch (Albertsons chicken and hot dogs! What else are you going to eat? It's 4th of July!) and then naps. We were all really tuckered out! That night we went over to Sarahs neighbors for a barbeque and more swimming. They made the best desserts EVER. I'm totally making them. You get marshmallows (any kind - regular, strawberry, caramel...) And stick a stick in them, dunk them in dipping chocolate and then roll them in any kind of crumbled candy. My favorite one was the caramel marshmallow rolled in Oreo... It was seriously quite possibly the best dessert I've ever had! Then we headed out to the street for some awesome fireworks. Steve and I brought a big box of them, the neighbors had a few and their other neighbors contributed 2 big illegals. We opened with the smaller of the illegals. 13 "vertical rising" fireworks shot in the air. They were pretty cool! Sarah's other neighbor is a fireman and his wife came out and yelled at us... but that didn't stop them. We lit all of the other fireworks we had brought. All while Wyatt sat next to his "girlfriend" holding his ears VERY tightly.. didn't like the noise... Noah sitting next to his friend, the girls constantly lighting and putting out endless amounts of sparklers, Steve trying to get his lighter to work so he could get in on the pyrotechnics more, Sarah and my mom freaking out about the bigger illegal firework to follow, Brad and his friends making off color jokes that we hoped the kids didn't understant, and me freaking out about mosquitoes! Lilly and Olivia were tucked away fast asleep in Sarahs house.. not even a peep from them even though there were really loud noises coming from the street! Once all of our fireworks were done, we started debating whether or not we would light the big one. It was scary because we were trying to figure out what it did, but the only thing it said on the box was "Shoots flaming balls."We took a vote, and thanks to Steve's loud and enthusiastic voice... We lit it. And boy did it shoot flaming balls... it seriously looked like a professional show. 30 giant popping fireworks. They were beautiful and right above us. We were PELTED with ashes.. some of them kind of hurt... It was totally worth it though.

The next day we took it easy. Relaxed with the family, watched some Tour de France (CANNOT believe Lance Armstrong is back and frankly not too happy about it... I mean I kind of understand... but really... what's he trying to prove?) Lilly walked around with Brad for a while, and then We had a delicious spaghetti dinner which Lilly loved!!

Of course she was covered so before we went home we put her and Olivia in the bathtub. They are almost the same size so when you look at them, it doens't look like there is that big of an age difference. But when they got in the tub Lilly was splashing and standing, and doing all sorts of things, and to me she just looked bigger and older than Olivia... FINALLY! haha. She is such a "shrimp boat" as Sarah and Brad would say!

Then once all the kids were in bed asleep and Lilly was ready to go home, we finished up the night with a few comparisons... I think Brad might win... what do you think?


I love my famiy! Thanks for the great weekend!
