Adelynn Overload!

Where do I even begin! So much has gone on in the past 3 months.

Adelynn's First Craft
So I thought it would be a great idea to make a turkey platter for Thanksgiving! Well my idea wasnt so great afterall. I called Krystle and asked for her to help since I am not too crafty. Krystle came to the rescue! We got to Mad Potter, picked out our platter and from there we began our painting! Adelynn was not too cooperative when it came to letting us paint her hands/feet. I think it turned out cute and cant wait to do another one next year!

Krystle hard at work!

I would rather scratch the plate!

I dont have a picture of the finished plate saved! I will have to upload that later!
Thanks Krystle for your help and cant wait until next time!

Adelynn 1st Thanksgiving!

Adelynn's eyed cleared up when she was about 6 1/2 months! Chris and I were both so relieved that she wouldn't have to have surgery!

Adelynn's first Christmas was lots of fun! She is the only baby in the family so of course she had more presents than anyone else! Here are some pics from Christmas.

My friend Jessica loves photography and has a little studio set up at her moms! We went over there for Christmas pictures! Here are some of my favs!

In January I decided to sign Adelynn up for Gymboree Play and Learn. I am so glad I signed her up. Here are some pics!

Trip To San Antonio

Chris surprised me with a trip to San Antonio to celebrate our 1 year Anniversary! He told me a while back we were going out of town but he wouldnt tell me where, well he slipped the week before we left and told me! I didnt know where we were staying so I was still a little surprised. We left on Friday afternoon. We got down there around 7 and check in to Hotel Valencia, a very nice hotel! We got to our room and there was a bottle of Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, wow Chris! Then we went to Mi Tierra for dinner. We decided to go to Howl at the Moon and had a blast! We didnt know where we wanted to go to dinner Saturday night, so when we were on the boat ride around the river we came across Fogo de Chao! We ended up going and it was soooooooooooo good, although Chris and I were soooooo unbelievebly stuffed


We had a really awesome time but we missed Adelynn alot! Not to worry Aunt Tricia and Mimi sent us pics via cell phones! While we were gone Adelynn celebrated her 6 month birthday! When we got to Tricias to pick her up she was so happy to see us!

Eye Update!

Ok so I thought I would give you an eye update before our 6 month check up next week. Adelynns blocked tear duct has been an ongoing battle since she was born. Just in case you arent sure what a blocked tear duct is or does, it causes your eye to tear 24/7 and clog up with eye boogies! When Adelynn wakes up in the mornings or after a nap her eye is sometimes completely stuck shut and its really sad:-( We took her to the dr a few times and he said it is very common in babies but normally goes away by the time they are 1. He said to massage it but to bring her back if it got red or swollen. Well it got to the point where it was red, swollen, and just flat out irritated! We took her in to see Dr. Spinner and what do you know, she had an infection. They gave us drops to put in, those drops didnt work. They gave us stronger drops to put in, those didnt work. We went back in and they put her on oral antibiotics, and guess what, that didnt work either! So her dr told us if none of this cleared up the infection, we would see an opthamologist and she would need to have surgery to open the tear duct up! He said it is not a fun procedure but she will need it done. Chris and I are not happy about her needing surgery but we just want her eye to get better. We go to the dr next week for her 6 month check up and we will discuss opthamologists and etc. We will keep you posted....

Happy Halloween

Ok so I am a day late for the Halloween posting, but oh well:-). Saturday I had to work so Adelynn stayed with Aunt Tricia for a while. I ended up buying a little Pumpkin costume, Adelynn was mommys lil punkin! We didnt do much this year for Halloween. We went to dinner with Tricia and Justin then walked around Tricias subdivision. Chris didnt get off work until 9 so he didnt get to participate this year. A couple months ago Chris and I decided to extend one of our flower beds and plant a Magnolia Tree. The bed has been empty and in need of some shrubs, flowers, etc so we decided today was a perfect day for planting! We woke up, cleaned house, then we went to the plant place. Adelynn was a big help watching us in exersaucer! And I was a big help being the photographer!

We have finally decided to get Adelynns pack n play out! If we would've known how much she loves to nap in it we wouldve gotten it out a long time ago!

So Chris has been telling me for weeks we are going out of town next weekend for our Anniversary but he wouldnt tell me where! Well today in the car he slipped and told me we were going to San Antonio. I kind of figured that because I knew we werent going to the casino and I knew we werent going far! And I hate surprises so I thought alot about it:-) It will be nice to get away but hard to leave Adelynn! I cant believe she will be 6 months next Saturday! It seems like yesterday we were going to the hospital every week for ultrasounds and non stress tests! Boy does time fly!

I Am Such A Bad Blogger!

Geez! I can not seem to keep up with this blog! Ok last weekend was pretty busy! On Saturday morning we went to Brookwood and had lunch with my mom, grandma, and aunt. After lunch we shopped around the store. All of the Christmas stuff is so pretty!
Adelynn and I at Brookwood
After Brookwood we went home and I got Adelynn ready for her first Halloween Party. She had alot of fun and we are really looking forward to next Halloween when she can walk and run around, and somewhat enjoy it!

Its hard to get all three of them to look at the camera:-)
And on Sunday Adelynn had her Halloween pictures taken. Chris and I went there thinking that she wasnt going to smile, since she never smiles for us! I dont know what that photographer had that we dont have but she loved him! I will post a couple of my favorites!

OK so I ended up posting pretty much all of them!

Say Cheese!

Ok why is it that no matter what we do: scream, clap, wave toys, etc we can not get Adelynn to smile for the camera?!?! She is always smiling at home and laughing and screaming but right when you pull out the camera she just stares at it lol! So as you look through my pictures keep in mind that Adelynn DOES smile and have fun but just not for the camera:-). Maybe if I get a hot pink camera with toys hanging from it she will smile.

Anyways this past weekend we went to the Bellaire Arts and Craft Show and dinner for my cousin, Tiffanys birthday. Of course we took pictures of Adelynn but she wouldnt smile! Shes still a cutie though!

Chris decided that he wanted to try and put a bow in Adelynns hair without a headband. I told him over and over, "Chris she doesnt have enough hair!" Well Chris had to prove me wrong and found a way to stick a bow in her hair.

Yes! I look just like my daddy!

I decided that Adelynn needed a pair of Uggs for the winter. So I ordered some from Nordstrom. I was so excited to get them today, but when I opened the box they were the wrong color, they were soft gold and I wanted Chestnut. These are the Chestnut ones!

We have a pretty busy weekend coming up! I am so excited about her Halloween pictures, but I am hoping she will smile for us! I will post the pictures as soon as I get them.

My First Post!

Ok, my cousin Krystle made this blog for me. I have wanted one for a while but I never knew how to make one. Thank God Krystle came to the rescue :) Instead of back tracking I am just going to update starting with today.

I am going to start with Halloween because I just ordered the final touch to her little Halloween outfit! I decided not to put her in a costume because she is too little and I think she would hate it! Plus I have to carry her around and I dont want to carry the extra weight that comes with a Halloween costume! Here is a picture of her cute little outfit! I got a bow to match the onesies and bloomers from my new favorite place. Check it out! The onesie is from, I also ordered one with her name on it when she was born!

Ok this is all I have for today. I am hoping to update this more than once a week!
