Party Preppin' and Lots of New Foods

Our sweet Adelyn will be 1 year old in just a few short weeks!! I am having so much fun planning and shopping for her party!! My sweet friend will be taking pics that day so I will have LOTS to post!! Can't wait. :)

In the last couple of weeks Adelyn has tried so many new foods and the only thing she didn't really love was... Broccoli. That is one of Andon's favorite veggies. But Andon doesn't like too many fruits which is a bummer to me because I love them all. And I think my daughter will too! :)

Here she is gettin down in some strawberries!

Asking for "more."

Needless to say she LOVED them and the next day we tried watermelon.. I didn't get any pics but I did get the same reaction. I've got a fruit lovin girl on my hands.. :)

We Ran With It

It was 7:00 and I was driving home from a (6 mile run!!!!) yesterday morning and the thought to head over to my parent's house crossed my mind.

So, two things....

I love running and have done it for years but haven't been doing it as consistently lately. I really love running in the mornings and I really love running with someone. So when a friend of mine recently asked if i'd like to join her for a run I happily obliged! I told her I haven't been on a long run in a while so she'd have to take it easy on me!! As we're running she says "do you want to do 5 or 7?!?!" When I took more than 20 seconds to answer she went ahead and said "7 it is!" But really it wasn't bad at all. That's why I love running with someone because you talk to whole time and you lose track of everything else. I had to throw all that in here because I am so excited to be lacing the shoes up again!!!

The other thing is, my parent's live a couple of hours away from me. I usually plan ahead of time when I go and have my stuff all packed up the night before. But something just came over me this particular morning. I knew the weather was going to be beautiful. And when we go to my parent's we spend the day doing things like this...

Relaxing in the hammock under a shade tree while the wind blows.

And Andon LOVES doing things like this!! :)

Of course he had to get off while U. Rogie did this.

We get to hang with cousins... Here's my sweet niece Kylie.

And my nephew Cayden.

And get lots of loves from Papa and Nana. :)

It was such a fun day relaxing, playing, hanging outside and bar-b-cueing. So glad the idea crossed my mind and I actually just ran with it!!

Better Late Than Never 10 Months Post!!

In 2 more days Adelyn will be 11 Months Old but I couldn't not write a 10 Months post! This is the month she started walking!!! It is the cutest thing watching her little self piddle paddle around the house. Jared says she looks like E.T and Andon says she looks like an old lady the way she walks. I say it is too stinkin cute!! :)

I finally got a picture of her smiling. ~see above~ She does this thing where she smiles really big and snorts her nose at the same time. :) She has 6 teeth now, 4 on top and 2 on bottom. I have been using one of those finger brushes to brush her teeth but today we bought her her first toothbrush and she loves it!

She has a very healthy appetite! She loves to taste any new food and so far the only thing she hasn't liked is green beans. Funny thing, Andon doesn't like them either.

I will be writing another post on our sweet girl in a few more days. I am already starting to prepare for her first birthday!! I really can't believe that she'll be 1 in less than 6 weeks!! Oh Me Oh My how time flies. :)
