Amber’s first "meal"

Amber’s first "meal"

On Sunday we gave Amber her first “real” food. The look she got on her face was priceless when she first tasted it. After that first spoonful she couldn’t get enough though. She kept reaching out for the spoon having to “help” me feed her […]

6 Months!!!

It’s so hard to believe my sweet little girl is half a year old already! Amber had her 6 month well baby apt. yesterday. The doctor said she seems like a very happy very healthy baby, of course she didn’t see her all morning long […]

As hard as it is to believe my “little” brother Daniel is now married!!! It seems like we were both just little bitty kids running around and playing together. We headed down to Greenville SC last Tuesday to hang out with my family and attend Daniel and Allegra’s wedding on Friday. We had an awesome time hanging out with my family and getting to catch up with some old friends that I hadn’t seen in forever like Jeremiah and Ashley, and Mary. It was also the first time my Grandma Middlemass, Aunt Chris, and Jessica had gotten to see Amber so that was really special too. Everyone thought she was just adorable and chunky of course 😉

The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Other than my own 😉 it was the very nicest wedding I’ve ever been to. Allegra was a gorgeous bride and her and Dan just make the cutest couple!!
Bob and I were both in the wedding so that was a ton of fun and he got to walk me down the aisle 😀 😀 So that was pretty awesome and it brought back lots of wonderful memories of our own wedding.
The church they got married in was beautiful and they had a string quartet and piano for their music which sounded absolutely amazing!!!! I’m so jealous! Wish we would have had access to cool stuff like that in Wyoming lol. Oh and they had a chocolate fountain/fondue pot at their reception–one of my favorite parts 😉 Hehe. The ceremony was short and sweet but very touching…I admit I did cry a little!!! It was amazing to get to be a part of it all and I’m so excited that we will actually be able to hang out with them when we move back to Wyoming!!

So yesterday I finally figured out why Amber has been so cranky and not sleeping well lately-she’s cutting her first tooth!! I found the little stub on her bottom gums yesterday and the poor gums themselves are all red and swollen..poor baby–no wonder she’s been […]

This is the nastiest, scariest, meanest looking spider I have ever seen in my whole life!!! I saw it while I was chasing after a lizard right on our front porch!!! Those things in front of it’s face are it’s FANGS!!!! Good heavens…….there are certainly some things about North Carolina that I will not miss!!!! Here’s another pic so you can get an idea of how huge it is!!!

6 years ago today

6 years ago today I checked out (literally and figuratively 😉 ) a cute tall skinny guy who was buying a Sponge Bob Squarepants calender. Little did I know that he was going to be my future husband!! Looking back it still amazes me how […]

5 Months and Nostalgia

So my sweet little baby Amber turned 5 months old a week ago! It seems like we just brought her home from the hospital–I can’t believe she is that old already! She is a delightful little chunk although she’s been uncharacteristically grumpy lately. Hopefully it’s […]
