Computer Hog

Due to Richie's recent hour long Power Point presentation, I have not gotten much computer time around here. I normally like to post when Mylie is down for the night (naps are too short--30 minutes tops!) but since Richie has been so busy with homework on the computer, I have neglected my duty.

There's so much to post about though!

On November 5, Mylie and I got to fly to Oklahoma to spend time with family. Oh how wonderful it is be at Mom and Dad's house! However, Mylie developed a condition called "Back-of-the-Head Hair Loss." I hear it's pretty common among babies though, so I'm not too concerned. Unfortunately she got a little cold as well, but not too worry, we treated her with a humidifier, saline nose spray, and a "nose-sucker." She didn't enjoy the treatment but is now healthy and happy once again!

She got spoiled with hugs and kisses,

24-7 attention,

new clothes new toys!

She met a new friend named Kenzie--my friend Robyn's baby. They got along so well that Kenzie allowed Mylie to suck on her hand.

Thanks Mom, Dad, Cassie, and Lisa for a wonderful time in Oklahoma!

Daddy and Mylie were so excited to see each other and hang out on the couch again! Yay for cool Dads!

When we got home we had to take Mylie to the doctor for another set of shots. Poor little Sweetie. She was so tough and did such a great job though!

Lucky us we got some very special visitors for Thanksgiving. Mylie finally got to meet her Uncle James and Aunt Michelle. They drove from Rexburg and Provo. What a sweet sacrifice!

Michelle and I tried to take Mylie swimming. Unfortunately the pool heater was not working yet, so we enjoyed the jacuzzi for a few minutes.

Mylie was always happy with James holding her. He even taught her how to Break Dance. (More about that in a later post).

We saw "Twilight" Thanksgiving Day. Seeing a movie while the turkey cooks is one of my family's Thanksgiving traditions. I liked the movie a lot. I liked Bella, but did not like Edward. He was quite a disappointment to me. I also really liked Alice and Charlie. The rest of the characters were fine, but not fabulous!

We had dinner at the Dinsdale's home. We were also joined by Ryan and Schuyler of course. Thanks for the yummy food everyone! I made our traditional Sweet Potatoe Pie or Yummy Yam Casserole and Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad. Mmmm yum. Let me know if you want either recipe. They are delish!

We got to go on a little hike with James and Michelle. Okay, it was more like a desert stroll. But we had fun anyway.

The sign "Stay on the Trail" kind of confused us. The trail went left and right. Which trail was it talking about?

BIG Cactus!

What else you ask? Aunt Rachel sent Mylie an adorable hat, and Aunt Michelle brought her some tights/leg warmers. Check out our stylin' little chica!

Lastly...more about Mylie. We LOVE this little girl! She's such a sweetie! It's amazing to see how much she learns every day. She can roll pretty well now. She often rolls from back to tummy and right on to her back again. We call it the double roll. She coos and babbles a lot and LOVES to interact with Mommy, Daddy, and even strangers. She's a little smiler and has got darling chubby cheeks, dazzling dimples, and a contagious smile! She's sleeping through the night and even falling asleep on her own. She's still a horrible napper, but I'm happy to have the nights free of wakings and feedings.

This is often what I do with Mylie while I put on my makeup. She likes to eat the faucet. Must taste like milk or something.

Your hair is so stinkin cute! It makes me want mine shorter, too. And I agree with you, I really liked Bella but have never really been a fan of that Edward, too goober for me.

Joni said...

Yeah! So many new cute pics of everyone. I'm glad Michelle and James were able to come spend some time with all of you. It sounds like everyone had a great time! Thanks for hosting them. They'll be here in a couple of weeks. We miss Mylie!!!

Sharron said...

Yeah, Mylie's fan club has been waiting for updates! She does get cuter all the time doesn't she? Good to have you back in town!!

Lauren and Trevor said...

Yea, I loved the informative post. It was fun to read and see what you have been up to. I am jealous you got to go to Oklahoma. It looked like fun! I also loved all the pictures of Mylie! What a precious little girl. I miss you!

I can't believe how big she is! What a cutie. I loved all the pictures (your hair color is awesome!). The picture of her in the sink was really cute. I had never thought of doing that but a great idea.
Love ya!

I can't believe how big she's getting. She so stinkin cute! Glad you had fun in OK. Where do they live? My husband just made a trip out there a couple weeks ago to move a friend out.

The Happy Couple said...

Long time no see! I love little Mylie! She is so adorable! And you are looking beautiful as always. It looks like you are enjoying Arizona. I miss you guys! We need to all plan a trip so we can all see each other, I think I am the only one in Utah now. So sad!

Cassie Jo said...

LOVE all the cute pictures of Mylie! Wish there was a picture of me with Mylie! I am so bummed I didn't have you guys take one!?

Next time!!

Love ya,

They moved out to Broken Arrow. Long story... but she's just there temporarily with her family.

No problem! It's way easy, I always wanted to know how too and I can't believe it took me that long to figure it out. If you go to CUSTOMIZE in the top right hand corner, then click EDIT on the header box at the top, you can upload a picture from your computer. I wanted to do a picture that was portrait style (long top to bottom) but it looked weird, but a landscape one looks the best (long side to side) Good luck, I'm excited to see it!

CUTE! Nice work with the Mylie picture!
