Happy B-day Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday! I was going to put how old she is but I thought she might be mad. But I'll tell you its somewhere between 44 and 42. So here is to wishing you a happy birthday mom. Thanks for everything you do for Dawson, Tannon, Easton, and me. You are a great mom and grandma. We love you very much.

A month of "firsts"

Daci turned 6 months old on August 21st! She has had a lot of "firsts" this month.

She went to her "first" football game on August 21st and loved it. She watched her Uncle Tannon play quarterback in Lone Peak's first game of the season. These are pictures of her at the game on her dad's shoulders and after the game with me.

She held her bottle and fed herself for the "first" time right around the 1st of August. She is so cute when she holds her bottle! The only problem is she wants to play at the same time as eat so she will roll over onto her tummy and try to drink her bottle at the same time...doesn't work so well :)

She went over the 50th percentile in weight for the "first" time at her doctors appointment on the 21st. She used to be in the 50th percentile for weight and now she is in the 73rd percentile! What a chunker! She is also in the 90th percentile for height. Are you surprised with her gene pool though? I'm sure not :)

She started scooting around for the "first" time on August 17th and now we can't take our eyes off of her for two seconds! She scoots for everything she can't have and won't go for the stuff that she can :)

She started eating solids for the "first" time on August the 19th. We started her on bananas and she loved them. Then the doctor told me to make sure I give her lots of vegetables along with the bananas so that she doesn't just prefer the sweet fruits. We have given her squash, which she liked okay and then we gave her sweet potatoes yesterday. She LOVES the sweet potatoes :) The night before I started her on solids I gave her some juice out of a grape to see what her reaction was. It was pretty hilarious and we thought we should share it.

3 Yr Anniversary

It was our third year anniversary on the 11th of August! Rick works for JetBlue now so we get to fly for free! We decided to fly to San Diego for just an overnight trip. It was a blast! We didn't rent a car so we walked everywhere. We checked into our fun hotel and then walked 1.5 miles down to the boardwalk. We saw a WWII aircraft carrier in the harbor and a lot of fun artwork. Then, we ate fresh seafood right on the water at the Fish Market! The next day we walked 2 miles to a diner that was on Food Network's Diners, Drive-In's, and Dives. It was a great meal and we even got a picture next to Guy Fiori's autograph! It was so much fun to get away for our anniversary and have a little alone time. I can't believe it has been 3 years!

We did a lot of shopping. Rick bought me a very cute outfit at Nordstrom for my anniversary gift.
