Randoms things for the little ones :)
Saw both these dresses for Vera/baby #2 at Target, I was just dying over how cute they are and I wanted to get it so bad for her but then I didn't because well it was $60 and today they went on sale for $30... now I'm really tempted and I know my sweet husband wouldn't like this hahaha
These salt water sandles are by far the best thing I have boughten for Vera. I bought her a tan pair at 7 months (I think) and they still fit her!! I told myself that I could use them for future kids too, but she has worn them so much that I will just have to get another pair. It was well worth every penny because I never had to worry about them falling off on their own or her being able to take them off. I will never by velcro, she ripped them off every time.
Have I ever told you about my Baby Jogger - City Select Stroller?! Well it is another baby item I absolutely LOVE! It's light, smooth, easy to steer, great storage, and everything you could want in a stroller AND it turns into a double stroller! BAM BAM!! Now I just need to get the second seat haha. But, really I love this stroller so much so if you're in the market for one don't forget to check this baby out!
 The Moby Wrap... I never got a carrier with Vera but I'm thinking I might want to try this out. Anyone, tried it?! It has good reviews, and people seem to really like it. It's not as bulky as some other carriers, which I like because it looks like I could fold it up and through into my bag everything.
What do we think of this glider??? We didn't have any room for this with Vera, but now they have a huge room and it would have been nice to have somewhere to sit and nurse other than my bed at night and I could put a really cute decorative pillow that would make it pop!
You can bet I will be getting some of these pouches. We always joked with our friends that we needed to invent this, but someone beat us to it! I pureed most of Vera's food and it would have been really nice if we had these pouches to put the food inside, instead of spoon feeding her for every meal.

Thirty Weeeeeks!

Yep, I'm 30 weeks! Isn't that crazy! I feel sorta bad because with Vera I was so good at documenting most everything and with the second I haven't really done much. I mean, I still need to get her a baby book to write down all of the random things they ask you about or doctors appointments or the list of names we have gone through...thought it was the one and then decided no and picked out another name.  Baby number two has probably had three/four names which we called her for a few weeks at a time until we thought of a new one. You probably won't like some of the names if not all of them because we pick random names that most people aren't crazy about. I mean nobody really liked Vera in my family, but it has grown on them now and find that it fits her perfectly! (I think)... We started with Gisele, then to Cora, and now Kennedy. We are still on Kennedy, Kennedy Attig??? Ahhhh I really don't know! I've played around with the name Bond, thinking it would be so cute if you asked a little girl what her name is and she said, "my name is Bond" in her cute little voice. Haha.

This pregnancy, the biggest difference is I haven't exercised nearly as much as I did with Vera, yet this little girl is much more active then Vera was. I have BIG BIG plans for getting back into shape post baby, especially since we're going to Maui three months later :) I will post about that plan of action soon enough, mostly to hold my self accountable ;) Other than getting more and more uncomfortable and probably painting my toe nails for the last time since I can't bend over my stomach I'm doing pretty well. I have no real cravings other than baked goods, fruits, and veggies which is normal for me. I have a great Doctor who is sometimes a bit over conservative but is so understanding.

The one thing I have learned to say to a Doctor is No. Some might not agree to say no to a doctors recommendations, but after countless ultrasounds that always came out positive and the bills to go with it, I learned to take a step back and think about it before just saying, "of course I'll have another ultra sound because I'm measuring small"...  After going through one pregnancy I learned more about my body and how I carry the baby (which an old man said to me one day is in my back!). I said no to all the genetic testing and down syndrome testing too. They make you feel or tell you like you have to do it, but you don't. No matter what I'm having the baby and nothing will change that, so I thought why spend the money when nothing will change. And if you have a great Doctor that supports your decisions and has the same feelings/views as you it makes the world of difference and makes that line of communication even more clear :) And I'm not saying you should say no to everything!

As of lately via Instagrammm

I haven't been taking very many pictures on my camera because I always use my phone, but then I drove off with my phone on top of the car and never found it :( haha so now I haven't been taking pictures with my phone either which means I'm going to start using my camera again. I love this picture of Aaron and Vera dipping their cookies in milk it was so cute. Then while we were visiting my parents in Florida we went to go see Santa and I was expecting Vera to love Santa like she did last year, but nope she hated him and couldn't wait to get away from him. Santa then asked if I wanted to sit on his lap haha to see if that might help... it didn't haha. And the last picture is of Aaron and I out golfing with dad and brother this past weekend. It was nice weather and we had a lot of together :)

Thanksgiving in FLORIDA!

We went to Florida for Thanksgiving and we had a lot of fun! I think the best part was taking Vera on the carousel in the quaint little downtown Saint Augustine. She loved it, and that's an understatement. She couldn't stop smiling the whole entire time we were there. Saint Augustine is the oldest city in the United States and it is a pretty little town along the cost of the Atlantic. The had decked out the whole downtown in Christmas lights and it was a lot of fun to walk/drive around and see the lights. We ate dinner at MOJO's which is a southern BBQ resturant and I'm pretty sure that I gained a few pounds after I was done eating. We also, played some golf while we were out there but unfortunately I don't have any pictures from that :( We had so much fun too! The time flew by, but that's what happens when you're having a good time! Thanks for having us Dad and Joy!!
We went for a walk to the park and the picture I posted below I just posted because look at that lush green forest in the background! That is what I love about the east coast, there is so much vegetation and it greenery everywhere. Of course Vera had fun at the park. What little kid doesn't!
Don't they look cute :)

Vera the BEAR!!

Happy Halloween! We had a fun Halloween with Vera. It was really her first Halloween where she actually could dress up and walk door to door for a little bit of candy. At first she didn't understand why people were giving her sugar! But after the second door she no longer cared why she was getting candy. My grandma sent us this costume and it couldn't have been any better, it was so funny.

I'm playing catch up so here is October! October was crazy because we bought a house!! (Pictures coming soon...) We moved in and it has been just chaos ever since with trying to do work on the house, etc... My dad came to visit and we for a walk around the Saint George Temple which it was beautiful. Vera had fun just walking around and playing with her toys on a blanket we had laid out.
And since it's October we HAD to go to a pumpkin patch! There were cows and all sorts of farm animals, Vera loved it. She is so funny I love the last picture, because that is typical Vera thinking she can pick up a pumpkin all on her own. It was so cute. Anyway, catching up is more about the pictures.

And We're Back!

... I have been dreading this for a while now because my last post was when Vera was SIX months and now she is THIRTEEN months!! I thought time had flown by then but now it feels like a blink of an eye. I stopped blogging because my lap top passed away on me... so sad... but anyway I'll just have to pick up where I left off! Vera started walking at about NINE months. She still has ZERO teeth!!! She is precious but can be sassy too. She amazingly goes to sleep at 7:30PM and wakes up at 7:30AM like clock work and still takes TWO naps!! I got really lucky, and I'm pretty sure I have Aaron to thank for that because he is a sleep snob and just loves to sleep!!! So she must have gotten that from her Dad. But, I do get scared when every once in a while she gets real mad and falls to the ground flat on her tummy and cries... yes it's really scary I might have one of those kids! But even though she is still young I won't tolerate that no matter how old she is!! (I'm the mean one and Aaron is the nice one...hah)

A few facts about and our favorite things about Vera:
As long as she ISN'T hungry or tired she is SO happy!
She smiles all the time
She loves to laugh and giggle
She is ticklish under her left arm pit, butt, and neck! We love to tickle her!
We love her little face
She likes her back messaged
When we open the door to get her out of her crib she is so excited to see us and bounces up and down!
If you start laughing she starts laughing too... and I mean really laughing!
If you have ANY type of food in your hand she wants it...and I mean anything
I think kids have this built in mechanism to know when something has sugar in it! And Vera certainly does!! She will walk around screaming at you if you have a popsicle
She likes to climb ladders... I know... you're thinking why is she even climbing them?!
She also likes to take clothes out of laundry bin and try to put them on, it can be really entertaining!
She is sick of bananas
She loves to watch me do my make-up/play with it
Probably one of the only things we haven't given her is soda and it will stay that way for a long time
Just after a year I weened her of breast milk and now she switches off between coconut milk and goats milk
She loves to be outside, when she is inside she is usually banging on the door to let me know she wants to go play in the backyard
She will actually put things back where she got them from... sooo weird
She remembers things... in the morning I hid a red toy from her and stuffed it under the couch. Later that night we came home and she went straight to the couch and got on her tummy to find the toy under the couch!
She loves water
And that is all I can think of for now!

6 Months has come and gone

My baby girl is 6 1/2 months now... but I took these pictures when she was 6 months. I know it seems ridiculous to even clarify but they change so much and so fast in a short period of time. She is so much fun! She and I go on walks almost everyday, she hangouts and plays with her toys while I get things done. She is a happy baby which makes it so much fun. 

We love to walk...especially by the beach

Almost every Saturday and Sunday morning we go for a walk, because we just love to get out! Vera thinks it's fun and she smiles the whole time so why wouldn't we go on a walk. Besides walks are good for the soul. 

We went over to a friends and celebrated Vera's little friend birthday. Vera was so excited you might have almost thought it was her birthday! Haha... We put Vera in a bouncer and she loved it!!!

My amazing friend Becca is having a baby boy, well actually she delivered the day after the baby shower!  So excited for her and hubby. I threw her a little shower along with the help from a friend and her family! I hoped you liked it babe! Here are some quick pics!  I don't know why the food pics came out first but o well!

I normally don't particularly care for lemon bars, but these were delicious!
My favorite cake to make right now... everything is better with condensed milk!
Jamie brought these limeade drinks... mumm sooo good! 

And she got the Baby Jogger City Select! So excited for her to use it in action... She's gonna love it!!
