Flashback Friday

Exactly one year ago today these pictures were taken of Jaden just learning to walk. :)

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


Today we went swimming with friends and had a blast. Kaylie proved today how smart she is. She was sitting on a chair talking to some random lady. I guess she wanted to be a social butterfly. :) The lady asked, "how old are you?" I was about to open my mouth and answer, BUT to my surprise Kaylie held up her little pointer finger and said "one!" I could NOT believe it. My little girl is only 14 months old...and she knows how old she is and knows how many fingers! Jaden just barely started saying how old he is all by himself. The lady couldn't believe how adorable and smart she was. I freakin love my little girl. :)

all about my babies

Kaylie has been giving me a run for my money the past few weeks. She continues to show me new sides to her personality. Her latest thing is she likes to try to sit in Jaden's chair while he is sitting in it. She will push him off with her bum so he will slide off. When I tell her to stop and put her back in her chair she throws a fit for a good minute or so. She also doesn't like me to feed her anymore, she has to do it all herself. Today I was trying to feed her yogurt because I didn't want her to mess up her dress and spill all over the floor. She would not have that. She went around screaming and crying for a good 5 minutes. Finally I just sat the cup of yogurt down on the kitchen floor and she waited until I left the room to eat it. Stubborn? YES! I came back and had to take a picture. I love the look on her face. You can just tell she is worn out from her tantrum.

And then there's that cute, sweet, little face I love...

She definitely made a mess!

Yesterday she decided to bend over on the ground and start licking dirt. I understand kids are curious and will eat dirt, but I've never heard of actually getting down and licking the dirt. Gross!

Another one of her new obsessions is to go into my room and sit on my chair at the computer and play. That is unacceptable behavior if you ask me! computer is my third ba
by. Now I have to make sure I shut my door because if I leave it open she will literally book it for the computer.

You already know that Jaden loves wearing my shoes and hats and purses around. He decided he wanted to go outside and play with his little outfit on today.

My little man is talking up a storm! He says full on sentences now. I'm amazed at how much he learns every single day. Today we were on a walk and he would point out everything he knew, boats, cars, churches, flags, basketball hoops, fire hydrants, mail boxes, stop signs, dogs, birds, etc. etc. etc.!

Today I was sitting on the couch by him watching a show and out of nowhere he leaned in closer to me and pats my stomach and says "you okay mommy?" and I said "yes, I'm okay Jaden, thank you." Then he just sat back and watched the rest of the show. He is so sweet. :) I can't wait for Kaylie to start talking more and hearing what she has to say.

I love my little's my new nicknames for them.

Double trouble for sure....

Sunday Confessions

I confess that the past couple of days I have really not wanted to be a mom.

I confess that I have eaten too many sugar cookies today.

I confess that I went to bed at 8:30 last night! It felt great!

I confess I hate hearing about Jon and Kate, who the heck cares?! I know Kate just loves all of the publicity.

I confess that sometimes I have to bribe Jaden with candy to get him to come inside.

I confess that I missed an old high school friend's wedding reception on Friday.

I confess that I wish I had some vodka and lemonade right now.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for Jaden and Kaylie's doctor, Dr. Glade. He is such an amazing doctor. He is extremely caring and knows his stuff.

I am thankful that Jaden is healthy, growing and learning so well. I took him to his 2 year appt. today and he weighed in at 32 lbs. and is 3 feet tall! The doctor was very impressed with how he is doing physically and cognitively.

I am thankful for the "girl time" I got to have last night with Carlene and Nicole. I colored Nicole's hair (I did a very good job I must say) and we watched He's Just Not That Into You. It was fun to just chat and not have to worry about watching kids. I love you both so much!

I am thankful for mine and Kaylie's cuddle time right before bed. She gets pretty fussy before bedtime if I don't hold her for awhile and give her my full attention. I make sure that I give her that cuddle time every night before she goes to bed. I love it because she just lays there with me and lets me kiss her and squeeze her.

I am thankful for the Soap Net Channel because they replay the original 90210 everyday. I love that show. Thanks to DVR I am able to watch it at night.

I am thankful that both my kids take a nap at the same time so I am able to get one, too.

Jaden got a Kobe Bryant jersey from his daddy for his birthday. He loves to wear it and gets sad when I take it off.
Here he is flexing his muscles...

Picture of Kiki that I love.

Best friends: Brindley, Londyn, Kaylie and Jaden :)

Sunday Confessions

I confess that I got another tattoo yesterday. It hurt so bad.

I confess that I miss AJ a lot.

I confess that I really want to move back to Arizona, but it looks like I will be here for another year.

I confess that I really want the Lakers to win tonight! Go D. Fisher!!!

I confess I am really poor and yesterday my sister had to buy me baby wipes. Thanks Megs.

I confess that people with bad manners really make me mad.

I confess last night I wore capris and a short sleeve shirt and it was only 50 degrees. My bad for thinking I can wear that in the middle of June!!!

I confess that sometimes I just ignore my phone completely. I'm tired of all the text messages I get.

I confess I haven't worked out for a week. Slacking big time...

Flashback Friday

My sister Megan got married on July 21, 2007. Here are some of my favorite pictures from her wedding.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for Jaden being so sweet to me and caring so much about me. The other day I was crying pretty hard and he came and sat down by me and wiped my tears off my face. And he kept giving me hugs and asking "you ok mommy?" He is so sweet. I love my little boy.

I am thankful for good friends that I can always count on.

I am thankful for the tanning salon. It's
the only thing making me feel pretty right now.

I am thankful for AJ. After all we have been through together, good and bad, he is still a good friend to me and will listen to me cry or vent anytime.

I am thankful for sports. Life would be so boring without football or basketball!

I am thankful that I will soon have the opportunity to watch my sister's best friend's little baby girl Madison a couple days a
week. It will cure my baby hungriness. :)

I am thankful for my determination to lose weight and eat better. I am doing pretty darn good compared to how I have been the past couple of years.

I am thankful for Kaylie's h
ugs and kisses that she gives me a hundred times a day.

I am thankful for mornings I had like this morning with my kids. We danced around and sang with pretend microphones. Jaden and Kaylie tried on my shoes and hats and danced around and watched me be silly. We have so much fun together.

I am thankful for my brother Ryan
and how much he loves the three of us and all he does for us. He is an awesome uncle. Always good times with Uncle Ry Ry!

Good times @ Barcelona in Scottsdale, AZ

Last Friday night I went out on the town with Desiree and Lauren. We had soooo much fun. We were out from 9 pm to 3 am...and now I know why I only go out like that once or twice a year. I was hurting all weekend! I was exhausted! But I'm so glad I was able to go out with my girls and dance and drink and have a good time. Love you!! Thanks, Mom for watching them!!!! :)

I ♥ Arizona

We are having so much fun here in Arizona. The kids are having fun with their grandma and grandpa and I am enjoying some much needed "me" time.

I have hung out a couple times with my friend Lauren, yes we are both Laurens. We've been called Lauren sandwich, Lauren squared, and Double L. It's pretty fun. She is a great friend and we always have a lot of fun together. We layed out at the pool all day last Sunday, it was very enjoyable.

I took Kaylie with me swimming to go hang out with my friend Camille and her baby Avery. Kaylie loved the water and was happy the whole time.

Last Friday we celebrated my mom's birthday. We went and ate at California Pizza Kitchen and had some yummy food. The kids weren't so well-behaved, thankfully we are fast eaters. I had to hold Kaylie the whole time. She just loves me so much, what can I say? :)

Jaden started acting really grumpy and whiney today, it was so bad that finally my mom said that something has to be wrong with him. I didn't think there was anything wrong, I was just thinking he was tired or just in a bad mood. Well I took him to urgent care tonight and sure enough he has an ear infection and a swollen throat. Poor guy. We got him some medicine so hopefully he starts feeling better soon. I want my sweet little angel back. :) He was so excited to go to the doctor. He was saying "doctor, doctor!" the whole car ride there and then when we got there he had to take "his" purse with him inside. haha! Don't tell his daddy, but he loves my purses. :)

Here are just some of my favorite pictures since we've been here.

Jaden's 2nd Birthday!!!

My little stud muffin turned 2 years old yesterday! How exciting!!! He had a low-key birthday, but it was full of lots of love, hugs and kisses and singing Happy Birthday over and over. This morning he opened his presents and was so excited. He got a Cars backpack!

And he got a really cool puzzle that he loves and has played with all day. Another book and also the Little Einsteins' rocket!

Before we left for Arizona my sister Angie gave Jaden a piggy bank that is a football! She made it and it's soooo cute. I have more pictures of it at home, this is the only one I had. It's really cute and he was really excited about it.

Jaden got to talk to his daddy on the phone today. They sat and had a 5 minute conversation. He kept saying "love you daddy", "i'm two", "it's my birthday", "Go Kobe", "miss you daddy", "see ya." Daddy kept asking him questions and he would answer "yea!" enthusiastically. It was so cute to watch his face light up talking to him. He also got to talk to his Uncle Ry-Ry who he loves so much.

I love you Jaden! Happy Birthday! I am so grateful to be your mommy and your best friend. :)
