11 months

Ansley turned 11 months on Saturday! I figured these two videos would let you know what she's been up to lately! I can not believe in just one short month our little girl will be one (insert tear here!).

What We've Been Up To!

Here are a few pictures of what we've been up to lately:

We've had a little bed head
We've washed windows

And we've enjoyed just hanging out!

St James Tea Room

As I mentioned in my previous post, some of my girlfriends and I went to the St. James Tea Room on Saturday. It is this fancy tea room, where you are served 3 teas and a lunch of bit size yumminess. It was so delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (with the exception of the ride home!).

Blah! That's how the Beals House has been feeling the last couple of days. We somehow ended up with a stomach bug that took its toll on Ryan and I. We think it actually all started the beginning of last week when Griffin threw up twice (didn't think much of it at the time), but then Friday morning Ansley woke up in vomit (eww!) and threw up 3 more times. I called the doctor and they said that there was a stomach virus going around Albuquerque and usually lasts 12-24 hours. Great!

Well, I was out with some girlfriends for lunch on Saturday at this fancy tea room place and on the way back had to stop the car and barf. Classy I know! It was awful! Luckily, I have great friends and they moved my car and took good care of me.

Then, Ryan started up. It was TERRIBLE! Griffin hasn't had anything else, so we are assuming he was the first to get it and got lucky that it wasn't bad.

I seriously can not remember the last time I had any type of virus like this. Believe me, I NEVER want it again!

Ryan is feeling much better and I woke up this morning on the mend. Still pretty nauseous when I try to eat, but I am just trying to stay hydrated. This obviously put a little damper on our Valentine's Day plans, but I did get to spend it with my family!

Oh, and ps....if you happen to see any black puke covered pantyhose on the side of 2nd street...those would be mine! YUCK! :)

We went to the aquarium this morning with a couple of other moms and their kiddos. We had fun. Griffin loved being able to run around and Ansley loved watching the fish.

What a big guy!

Aiden's Birthday Party

We went to Aiden's 4th Birthday party on Friday at Hoots (a jump jump place). Griffin had the BEST time. I think his daddy had just as much fun too!! :)

Me and my girl
Having the best time!
They even had a little play thing for Ansley

We did a little photo shoot before we left the house since by babies were so cute!

Three great videos that Ryan got on his phone.

911.....that's was Miss Ansley dialed this morning. That's right..she called 911. I was getting ready this morning and some how the little missy got her hands on the phone (my guess her brother had something to do with it). Well, I didn't know what she had done until the nice officer from the Rio Rancho Police Department showed up at my front door and informed me of what my daughter had done. He said, "We received a 911 call from this residence, is everything ok ma'am?" He said that they could hear a baby coughing, but other than that the call was dead. Yep, Ansley has a cold. I was BEYOND embarrassed! I apologized profusely.

I will say that the little lady's phone talking days are O.V.E.R!

The Naked Napper

So, we aren't really sure what has come over our son lately, but he is obsessed with taking his clothes off during nap time (and bedtime now). If he doesn't nap right away, I usually have to go in his room and tell him to go to sleep. Well, the last week or so every time I go in there he is bottomless (pants AND undies). WHAT??

Ryan got the brilliant idea to put him in a one piece. It worked! Until the next day, he figured out how to get it off! He was literally naked napping. I mean, I guess he isn't hurting anything. But, the boy needs to keep his clothes on!

Last night we put his one piece pjs on backwards....try to get those off buddy!! :)

He woke up fully clothed this morning, however, I believe he is currently napping in the nude (we didn't turn them around). I had no idea this stuff started this early!! :)
