Project 365: Day 112- October 6th (And Project 52)



Tayler took a bath in the big girl bath tub tonight!! Yes, the first time without the baby bath since she was born. Shocker, right? She was soo cute in there. And you all know me.. I took pictures.. WITH CENSORS ;)




Isn't she the cutest thing ever? And man oh man, she adores bath time and that purple octopus LOL! :) 

And I of course took a picture of that adorable freckle that Tayler has!! 


Another milestone. Whoop Whoop!

Speaking of milestones..................



TAYLER HAS HER FIRST TOOTH!! 

I couldn't get a good picture of it because it just broke through the skin, but it is on the bottom right side of her mouth. I'll get a picture as soon as you can see it on camera. I can't believe it! Ethan was holding her last night and was rubbing her gums and he said, "That feels weird..." so we opened her mouth and lo and behold... A TOOTH.

Here's our big girl after finding it:


Love her! :)

Our big girl turned 27 weeks today. 19.7 pounds, 27.5" long... gorgeous. 


Cheers!

Project 365: Day 111- October 5th



I took a picture this morning of Tayler and me :) We were hanging out and taking pictures for Daddy prior to her 6 month check up :)


She was all laid back huh? haha! Too funny! 

And speaking of that 6 month check up.... Tayler is now 19.7 pounds and 27.5" long! Can you believe how big she is?? She was 6.3 pounds at birth and 20.5" long.. so she has gained 13.4 pounds and 7." Mommies' big girl!! She was making everyone smile there.. she was laughing hysterically at random things, haha! She killllls me!

Once we got home, we went over with Daddy to the basketball court. She hangs out with us over there while we play some ball, but Mommy paused today for a picture with her!


You can tell how into it she was! LOL And guess what? I'm still beating Ethan (although he beat me today!) We have been playing PIG this week and I'm winning 6-5 as of right now. I'll keep you posted if that changes. Or will I? ;) haha!

When we got home, it was Tayler-Play-Time! Yes, we think it is hysterical that she enjoys picking things up with her feet. I don't know how she started that, but she does it with everything now lol!
 
Here's a picture of our play time:
 
We had such a good night and we ended it with X-Factor. Once they pick the  people, I'll fill you in on my favorites are!! 

Cheers!

Project 365: Day 110- October 4th



Tayler wore her Air Force shirt that my sweet friend Sheena bought her today :) Doesn't she look adorable in it??
 
 
Thank you, Sheena! We love it :)

Tayler started a new thing too... She "grabs" thing with her feet LOL She loooooves getting the water bottle! She cracks me up!
 

And something devastating happened today. I know it's going to sound super silly, but seriously, my heart broke. The glasses I wore when I gave birth to Tayler.. 


BRRRRROKE!
 
Like, I cried so hard :( So now-- these are back and nooo I do not like them LOL
 
 
Cheers!

Project 365: Day 109- October 3rd


Tayler and I had a fun day today. While I was doing a few loads of laundry, washing dishes, and cleaning.. she played with toys. After everything was done though, I got down there and started playing with her, but sheeeesh. She looked soo stinkin' cute playing, I had to take some pictures, haha! I LOVE that smile and the fact that she is having a lot of fun with her toys!


I'm super excited for Christmas already... more toys.. more toys, haha! :)

We may even be investing in a baby gate in the next few weeks!! I'll keep you all posted on that progress.... it's happening... whoohoo!

And since E got home EARLY we ran some errands and got some BK soft serve ice cream..... I'm addicted here lately. I'm lactose, but seriously-- that stuff doesn't hurt my tummy! It's a miracle!


As the night progressed, we got Tayler a bath and then we all cuddled up for our Monday night favorites--- The Lying Games and Ridiculousness!


Cheers!

Project 365: Day 108- October 2nd


Daddy got up and went paintballing today with his friends, so Tayler and I hung around the house and relaxed. I think it's safe to say we were pretty worn out from the weekend and I was SUPER sore from bowling, haha! I know. I know. I sound pathetically old! Here's a shot of her and I 'hanging out' (well, she's eating LOL) We sent this to Daddy to tell him how much we missed him!


And I thought I'd document what Tayler does now... we get to this point and then she just kind of hangs out right there. She tried to move one hand and bit the dust, so she hasn't been brave enough to attempt that again, haha!


That little butt is the cutest! Haha! :)

And I thought I'd share a few pictures of her sitting up like a big girl. Gigi was trying to make her laugh LOL


It just boggles my mind how big she is. I guess I didn't think she'd be doing some of the things she's doing already. I know it's not really 'advanced' but just wrapping my mind around the fact that she is THAT old. It's insane!

And I thought I'd share the new October Scentsy Warmer again. I LOVE it and I hope all of you do too. You can purchase it at www.alyssabay.scentsy.us :)


Cheers!

Project 365: Day 107- October 1st (and Project 52)


Saturday was my our Scentsy party! If you aren't familiar with Scentsy, check out www.alyssabay.scentsy.us but BEWARE. You will become addicted, that is for sure, haha! Here's the table all set up for that. I set them up in categories so everyone could sniff in that order, hehe!


We had such a good time and I'm so glad everyone came out! I can't wait for everyone to get their items :) I hope they love it as much as I do. There's nothing like coming home and smelling 'Pumpkin Roll' and knowing that your house is safe with it lit during the day!

And thank you to my future sister in law Marie for baking 'Cake in a Jar.' She found this on Pinterest (her newest addiction as well) and made it for us! We LOVED it! She's so good at that kind of stuff!


So cute right? :)

After the party, Kelly, Josh, Gabi, Ethan, Tayler, and me went to the bowling alley. I've been dying to go, haha, so I was excited when everyone wanted to! :) The girls played on the floor while we bowled. How adorable are they?


I love that smile of Tayler's :) And she loves Gabi!

But Tayler soon wore down and it was nap time for her, haha! She was out cold!


So, during that time, I took pictures of all of us bowling... well, posing prior to bowling, haha!
 
Ethan.... *sigh*


Kelly... :)


That's me..


And well, I got a picture of Josh holding Gabi by the score keepers thing, haha!


We bowled three games and were completely worn out, so we went and sat down and the guys played a few games of pool, which brings me to a funny story. The cue ball got stuck inside of the pool table, so Ethan and Josh thought they couldn't play anymore. Well, a guy brought out an extra cue ball and guess what my husband does instead of using it to play with? He throws it down the hole and it gets stuck. We were all like, "Ethan!? What are you doing!?" hahaha! He's like "What? OH.. Wait.. That was the dumbest thing I've ever done." Uh, yeah. It was!


And today marked my daughter being 6 months old. Okay, well.. kind of! She was born on March 31st and since there isn't a September 31st (what were they thinking?!) we had to celebrate her being a half a year old today! Here's a picture of our big girl:


What are you doing at 6 months old?

Well of course, you're sitting up by yourself. You're scooting. You're up on all fours just rocking back and forth. We're waiting for you to realize you can take off. You've got the strength, you just don't realize it. You are chowing down on baby food, baby yogurt, apple juice, white grape juice, and cereal. You have an amazing schedule down when you eat. You have a bottle about 7AM, cereal at about 9-10, a bottle about noon, baby food at 2, another bottle about 5, baby food at about 7 or so, and then a final bottle at 9-10. (After your bath) Speaking of bath time, you have this octopus that you LOVE. It's purple and pink and oh my word, as soon as we put you down in the tub you grab it and suck on it, throw it, bite it. It's hilarious! You're wearing 6-9 month clothes and some 12 month clothes (especially sleepers!) You're so long! You have a doctor's appointment coming up so I'll know more about measurements then! You are beautiful. You have such a personality. You grab stuff out of our bowls, off our plates, haha! You never cease to amaze me. We love you so much!

Cheers!

Project 365: Day 106- September 30th



Ethan was off work with us today, so we had a nice relaxing day together. Well, I'm not sure if he'd say relaxing... maybe annoying? LOL I watched 'Desperate Housewives" alllll day! I'm trying to get caught up so I can watch the season premiere Sunday night, but I failed. Still much much more to watch, so I guess I'm going to keep catching up and save the season premiere on my DVR. Thank God for DVR, haha!
 



Later on, Ethan and I got ourselves together and went to Burger King for some yummy food. I got chicken fries and fries, haha. And the beautiful thing was we got an ice cream cone with the value meal for FREE!! I posed with mine, of course!
 
 
 Once we got home, we stripped Tayler and let her have some fun on the floor. She was trying to crawl, then decided to bend herself in half and eat her toes... HAHA! She's too funny!


Cheers!
