Happy 1st Birthday, Nick

My baby boy turned one yesterday. He is WALKING, talking and growing so fast. He had his 12 month checkup yesterday morning and he has an ear infection and a cold, but here are his stats.

weight- 18 lbs- only the 2nd percentile....which means we need to feed this boy! He has to stay on Pediasure until he gets his weight up.

height- 31 inches- 93rd precentile- so he is tall and skinny

head- 30th percentile- just below average in the size of his head.

And here are some highlights from his special day.

NOt so happy with his cupcake

A little happier


Happy Birthday my little buddy!

Cali, Vegas, Utah...a much needed vacation

We are taking a much needed vacation next month. Starting out we will be heading to Madera and Fresno, then spend a week at the coast with both sets of grandparents then heading to visit my brother in Las Vegas and rounding out the trip with almost a full week in Utah. It has been a year since we have gone anywhere, and I am so excited to get out and travel. What fun it will be to see old friends and family! I can't wait!

My modeling career

ok, so I am a bit embarassed by this, but I guess I should be proud that I was asked. A girl I know asked me to be a model for her plus size clothing online store. At first I was flattered but still nervous to do something that I never, in my wildest imagination, thought I would do. During the shoot I was very uncomfortable doing this, especially next to the size 2 models, but it was an experience that I will always remember and something that I can laugh at~ Me a model~too funny!

Here is the link if you are curious to see more, but I am not extremely happy with some of my pictures- I think they look terrible!

A fun little playdate

I have a hard time being cooped up in the house all the time during teh cold winter months, so we have a weekly playgroup that I take the kids to. It is nice to get the kids out and get some exercise.

Miss Bailey is 3!

It has been 3 years since I had this precious girl. We were supposed to have a few friends over Friday morning to play with Bailey, but it ended up being a full on birthday party. It was pretty hectic with 10 little kids under the age of 5, but we did it and Bailey had so much fun. We had a bowling game, a treasure hunt, a fruit toss, then the kids got to make their own pizza. Baileys birthday is today so we just had the family sing to her and she got her pink heart-shaped cake! Happy Birthday Bailey, We love you!

Waiting for her friends to arrive

Bowling with the other kids. Her BFF Abi has the ball.
