Spit Up

Watch out, she spits! Somehow, every video I take I get her spitting up.

The new 'do

I decided to mix things up a little, ok, A LOT!

I went dark. Honestly, what do you think?


I like it. I have always wanted to do something like this, but have always been too scared. I have been blond my entire life, thanks to bleach and a sister who is a killer stylist. :) I almost feel like my blond hair was my signature, not anymore! Believe it or not, this is pretty dang close to my roots, just a little more red. Now, I just need a tan.

Elliott and I got to go visit Josh at his office today. I finally got my spouse pass so I can get on base to use the gym. Unfortunately, I got it just in time to go back to work. :(

Because I can't go a day without taking pictures of my little girl, here are some more.


She is such a crazy sleeper!


This is one of the only things I have from my mom. We found this little sweater in her closet after she died. I love it, being a knitter myself. Thanks to my good friend Chelsea, she has a skirt that matches it great!

Gas Relief

This one had gas SO bad, that she did this all day.


Until her dad came home, and then this happened.


I swear, he is the poop whisperer. Every time he holds her, she passes gas. Like father, like daughter, I guess.

Happy Valentines Day, a couple days late

Happy Valentines Day!! I know I am late, but better late than never, right? Josh and I celebrated Saturday night, and went out to dinner. We left E with Grandma Chris, and she did great. She got her bottle, and everyone was happy. We were gone about two hours, and it actually felt good getting out with just Josh. He even opened the car door for me. :) He said he was being romantic. Isn't he a great husband?! On a more serious note, he really is a great husband. I sure love him a lot, and am thankful everyday we have each other. He gave me a Gift Certificate for a massage for V day. I can't wait! He got a roast for dinner, with frozen corn (his favorite) and hot, homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies. Aren't I such a good wife? :)

Elliott started sleeping through the night!! Wahoo!! She is sleeping until about 5am, give or take. I consider that sleeping through the night, and I will take it!

Here are some more pics of the babe. She is so cute!



This outfit is from Auntie Shayna (that is what I am calling you now, Shayna. YES, we need to play very soon!) Isn't it so cute?

First day of church. We sat in the VERY back, away from everyone with the car seat completely covered. Right after this photo was taken, she spit up all over her dress just in time to leave. Ugh.


This outfit is from her Aunt Keli. The hat didn't last all day, but it was sure cute while it lasted! You can see how thrilled she is about it.

First bottle and some tongue action


Elliott had her first try at a bottle this week. I have to return to work (boo!) in two weeks from Monday, so I figured now was as good of time as any to introduce a bottle. I made Josh give it to her. It was hard giving up that special bond her and I have. She picked it up like a pro and now Grandma gets to watch her while Josh and I go to dinner for Valentines Day!

E has found her tongue recently. She loves to stick it out as far as it will go. She even did a little curl with it the other day. It is so funny to see the little things they pick up everyday.

She is still cute, one month later

It is Elliott's one month birthday today. I can't believe she has been here a month!

She is still cute, and sleeping nicely. Last night she slept from 8:30pm to 3:30am! I woke up in a panic wondering what was wrong. :)

Here are some recent shots I have snapped over the past couple weeks. I love this little thing so much!

She looks like her dad!

She loves gazing at the ceiling fan, especially when it isn't on


She is all smiles when she doesn't have clothes on

Waking up is so hard to do
