Time for baby food

Now that Addison is six months we decided to get out the high chair and see how she likes baby cereal. She did very well for her first try, we were all impressed. I still think she spit more out that we managed to get in, but it was a great first try.

Addison 5 and 6 month pictures!

Addison at 5 months! She is getting good at sitting and has been having fun figuring out the exersaucer!
Addison at 6 months! It was so much fun to celebrate Christmas with our baby girl. I am sure she has been having a blast watching us all play Wii. She is probably thinking, just wait till I get my hands on that wimote, I'll beat all ya'll ! She has just started spitting I mean doing raspberry's. That is going to be awesome when we are feeding her, I can't wait ; \ Addison is still very calm and content but also loves to laugh and be tickled, we all love her to pieces!

Christmas Eve Confessions

My Andie was sooo worried on Christmas Eve that she wasn't going to get any toys for Christmas because she had been a bad girl this year. She spoke to Ben about it in the morning about how she thinks Santa is only going to bring her rocks.

On Christmas Eve we were at Rachel's (my sister) house. I went into the back room to change a baby diaper and Andie followed me in.
Andie: Mom am I going to get rocks for Christmas?

Sarah: no,why would you think that?

a: well I don't know if I have been such a good girl this year ;(

s: of coarse you have been a good girl,what makes you think you have been bad this year?

a: well there is something I think I should tell you, the other day when Hailee came over she left her makeup (lip gloss) at our house. when Katherine and I woke up we put on some of the makeup and we didn't tell you. now I am afraid that Santa will not bring me presents and he will only bring me rocks.

s: Andie, Santa is going to bring you presents I promise. I know you made a mistake but if you make a better choice next time and learn from your mistakes you will be fine. :)

a: I am glad that I told you mom, I feel better now.

And she ran out of the room to go play!

It was such a cute tender moment, and it makes me happy that she feels comfortable enough to come to me. I love this girl!

Celabrating 11 years!

On November 23rd Ben and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary! I still can't believe that I have the best boy in the whole world all for me! My mom always used to tell me "Sarah, you want to marry someone who will treat you like a princess." I am so glad that I followed her advice. Ben has treated me like a princess ever since we met and he still does today! Am I lucky or what!
Ben sent me flowers and took me to Ruths Chris Steakhouse for dinner, yum yum! It was our first date without the baby and she did great too. I am looking forward to the next 11,000 years to come!

Thanksgiving 2007!

We enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving this year. Addison's first Thanksgiving and we had the Alexander's over for dinner with us. Jake and Cara with their kids Hailee, Dominic, and baby Traci (2 weeks old). Ben, Addison and I.

My crazy but adorable daughters!

Dominic by little buddy!

Katherine loving on baby Traci!

Katherine playing with Hailee!

Addison at 4 months!

Here is Addison at 4 months, now that she is almost 5 months old. I took the picture at the right time, but I just haven't posted it. This picture is taken in her rocking chair in her room after her bath!

Cara's diaper bag!

I promised to post a picture of Cara's bag after it was finished, so I made her pose with it after Thanksgiving dinner. We are very happy with it,the inside is lined in lime green to match the embroidery on the front.

Missing Buff & Stuff

Buffy moved form Utah to Tax as just over two weeks ago and I am in withdrawal. Her cell minutes are up for the month and she doesn't have a phone or Internet hooked up yet. It is really driving me crazy that I can't talk to her. I have been so busy sewing lately that I haven't taken the time to sit down and blog. I really need to post some pictures of what I have been doing , but they all seam to leave my house so quickly that I don't get any pictures. I hope Buff gets her phone soon, and I promise to add more pictures too.

Another Wipes Cover !

I made a wipes cover for Cara's (my awesomest friend in Atlanta) baby shower. I used different fabric this time, and I loved it !! We are making a diaper bag to match the cover. I will post the picture when it is done!

Opinions please!

I made this cover for the diaper wipes that I carry with me because I would rather see a cool fabric than a plastic wrap. Here are the before and after pics. Please tell me what you think. BE HONEST! If you think it is goofy, do tell.

Diaper wipes before.

Diaper wipes with cover.

How it works.

Bottom view.

Katherine turns 10 !!!!

I can't believe that my first baby is 10 years old. She was born in Provo, Utah on the day of BYU homecoming at Utah Valley Hospital. This is one of the top 10 busiest hospitals, but I was the only woman in labor at the time. I think all the other husbands made their wife's wait until after the BYU game had finished. Katherine was 7lbs 6oz and was born at 7:06PM. We were so excited for her arrival. She held up her head like a champ the first day she was born!
Now she is 10 and ready to Party! We had a birthday party at our house this past Friday, we had the girls sew pillowcases. They all had so much fun. Katherine had fun with her friends, cake, and cool gifts!
Katherine and her friends! Yessina, Kalee, LeighAnn, Andie, Erin,and Olivia. they are all sporting their new pillowcases before watching a movie together.

LeighAnn, Katherine's cousin! She had a great time even though she had never met any of the other friends before!

Erin enjoying the cake, ya think? ;)

Katherine opening one of the many gifts. Her friends were very generous. It was so nice to have them all over to celebrate and see them all have fun together.

Look Mom I've got curls!

I have had stick straight hair my whole life, as most of you know. Not that I am complaining, but look what has happened during my pregnancy with Addison. It is great because now I can wear it straight or with body!

Addison's first three months!

Our sweet Addison was born June 29,2007. She weighed in at 8lbs 5oz and was 21 inches long. It has been so sweet to have a baby in our home again! I am trying my best to get a photo of her each month for the first year. I want to share the first three months now!
This picture was taken 2 days before Addison was born. Andie was at the perfect hieght to kiss my belly button and did so often!
This was taken the day Addison was born when the girls fist saw her at the hospital. They are so proud to have a baby sister and have been very helpful with her.Addison's 1st month! She is a very content baby. My mom left after helping us for 2 weeks and Ben's parents came to visit soon after. Ben, my dad Mike Boyle, Ben's dad Alan Oliver, my bro in law Chris d'Aquin, and our Bishop Chris Young all stood into bless Addison at home the first Sunday of August 2007.
Addiosn at 2 months! She is our first chunky baby and we are loving it. She weighed 13lbs at her 2 month check up. she is in the 95th % in wieght and 90th% in height. She measured 24 3/4 inches long at this check up.
Addison at 3 months! She is just starting to hold her head up well and is starting to grip with her hands. I am sure she is well into the 14lb range now! We are calling her Buddah because of all the rolls she is sporting. We can get her to laugh a bit now too, it is very cute!
