Hailee is WALKING!

Guess what?!?!
Hailee is officially walking! She has been walking for almost two weeks now! How crazy, huh? She can walk the length of a room all by herself! And anywhere we go, she just wants to walk like a big girl! She loves holding our hand at Disneyland and walk like a big girl! Our little baby is so grown up now! We are so proud of her and we LOVE the wobbly walk that she does!

Also, this next video is for her Uncle Dew.... Hailee is now ready to help you mow your lawn!

Reno 911 and More....

For Halloween this year, Gregg and I are charaters from the TV show Reno 911. If you haven't seen this show before, its hilarious! Our costumes are pretty gutsy, but so much fun! Gregg definitely got into his character which was hilarious! We went to Kip and Sarah's Halloween Party on Oct. 24th and had alot of fun! Everyone had such great costumes!

On Saturday we went to Riley Fisher's 1st Birthday party! It was so much fun! She is such a cute girl and I love that her and Hailee are friends! They are only 5 weeks apart! Thanks for inviting us!

Hailee turned 11 months old on Sunday, October 26th! We can't believe how fast she is growing up. I know I always say that, but it is so true! She is now walking! I need to get video of it still, but she has been walking non stop for about a week now! It is so cute and she loves it so much! We are so proud of her!
Yesterday, Oct. 27th we went to Disneyland again. It was alot of fun; besides it being so extremely HOT! Hailee actually enjoyed the rides a little more this time! Can't wait to go back next week!

What a week so far...

Isn't it crazy how some weeks are so uneventful and then some weeks are just crazy busy? Well, that is how this week has been, and we have LOVED it! On Monday, we went to Disneyland all day with our friends, the Bowthorpes. We bought our season passes that day too! Thanks Grandma "Duh" for getting them for our birthday! It was so much fun! Let me start off from the beginning though.... So, it has been an EXTREMELY long time since I have been. Deanne and I had been talking for a few days about it and I kept asking her questions like, "What kind of shoes do you wear? Do you bring your own food? Do you just buy food there?" She was cracking up and telling me that I sound like such a TOURIST! So, the night before we met up with them, I sent her a text telling her she better watch out because I might just come dressed as a tourist since I am so full of tourist questions! And low and behold....that is what I did! (Don't worry, I had my normal clothes on underneath. Once they saw me and we got a good laugh, I threw that outfit away!) It was pretty funny! Anyways, rest of the day went great! For the first couple of hours, Hailee wasn't diggin' in at all, she cried on the rides and just wanted to be held. But finally she warmed up to all of the bright colors and loud noises and had a great time! Hailee absolutely LOVED Toon Town! We had a great time and can't wait to go back next week!
Tuesday evening Gregg and I were able to have an awesome date! He bought us tickets for my birthday to go see the play Wicked! I was soooo excited! This was our first time ever going to the Pantageas theater. It was so awesome! The detail work put into that building was amazing! We also had incredible seats which made it even more fun! We definitely want to go see the play again already! Oh, my absolute FAVORITE song in the play is "Popular"! I laughed so much during that song! Thanks again honey for an amazing night!

Then last night we went down to Kevin and Jess's house with James and Jenn. I was going to take pictures but forgot the camera. Bummer, next time!
Today has been a relaxing day. We have been resting up for a weekend full of Halloween parties!

Lastly, I just have to say our daughter is so amazing! She is learning so many new things everyday! Today she learned how to clap her hands! She always sees us do it but she has never been interested in trying, until tonight! As soon as she did it, she just kept doing it over and over again laughing so hard! Oh, and Hailee also loves to point at EVERYTHING!
Also, Hailee can now walk across an entire room! We are so proud of her!
In this last picture, Hailee is asleep, no joke! She was so wiped out from the Disneyland trip that she fell asleep sitting in her high chair drinking her bottle. At first I thought she was just closing her eyes, but nope, she was really asleep! How cute!

Punk Princess

We took Hailee to the Pumpkin Patch here in Corona. It was so much fun! Gregg and I have not been since we were kids, and wow, have they changed! They now have those huge blow up slides, games, a petting zoo, trains, and so much more!
Our little Punk Pirate

She absolutely LOVED these little pumpkins. She would shake the cart and laugh and then grab pumpkins one by one and started throwing them out! It was so funny!

Then she decided she was done with the little pumpkins and decided to move onto the larger ones, except that she really did want to "move" them! She kept trying to roll them around!
Thanks Rachel (Rachel Kirk Photography) for this great picture! If you guys haven't gone yet, definitely go and have her take your pictures!

Pictures of the Week!

I was cleaning the kitchen and Hailee was playing with the magnets on the fridge. I wasn't paying much attention to her because she was being so good and quiet and I really wanted to finish the dishes, but to my surprise, she WASN'T playing with the magnets! She has gotten into the trash can and found the left over birthday cake and was stuffing it into her mouth! No wonder why she was so quiet and good! We couldn't stop laughing at the sight! She is definitely going to LOVE her birthday cake next month!

Next, Hailee decided that she didn't want any help with dinner. I was eating a Miguel's Jr salad and fed her a few of the refried beans and she loved them! I ended up opening a can of beans and put some in a bowl for her and she went crazy over them!
I absolutely love these last pictures. They don't involve food, but they involve love. I am always so amazed at how much Hailee watches us and learns so much everyday. She watches me everyday put make up on. She knows how to open my powder, put some of it on the brush and then she will put it on her cheeks. She is such an amazing and beautiful daughter and we are so proud of everything that she does. We couldn't have asked for a better daughter then her. We love her more than words can explain.

The BIG 2-5

Today I turned 25! It has been a WONDERFUL day!
It started off with Gregg getting home from his graveyard shift this morning and showering me with kisses and hugs! He went to bed for a few hours so Hailee and I played "house".I seriously LOVE her so much. She is at such a fun age right now where she is so interactive and such a GIRLY GIRL!
After a few hours of playing and a 3 hour long nap, Gregg, Hailee and I went to the park for a while. It was so much fun! We took her on the swings and slides. We even let her go down the slide all by herself, and she LOVED it! We were so surprised that she wasn't scared at all! She is one brave little girl!
Afterwards, we came back home and I opened presents from my parents and from Gregg and Hailee. Gregg had hidden all of my presents through out the house and in his card was a set of clues for each one!It was so much fun to have to figure out the riddles to where my presents would be! The very first riddle was so funny but wasn't something I could read out loud to everyone, so I just sat there busting up laughing!I loved everything I got from him and my parents. Thank you guys all so much for making my birthday so wonderful!
I love my little family so much! It has been such a happy day! I thought that I would be sad turning 25 but I am nothing but HAPPY! Oh, and I'm also excited that Gregg and I are going to go see Wicked in two weeks!
