15 months

Our baby girl turned 15 months on Father's Day. She is growing up so fast. She is at a fun age right now, taking everything in and learning more and more everyday. We had her well-child check this afternoon and here are her results:

Weight: 26 lbs 3 ozs, 90th percentile

Height: 32 inches, 89th percentile

Head: 19.75 inches, 95th percentile

She is still a big girl! She had to get one shot and is looking great. We did discuss the possibility of tubes because she has had multiple ear infections, 4 this year. The doctor advised us to wait until the fall to see how she does since summer isn't really cold season (even though she ended up with an ear infection on our trip). We will see what happens.

Ansley had a word explosion over our trip to GA. Here are some of the words she knows (for the animals, she knows the word and the sound they make):


Dog Dog








Thank you





Oh no










Winnie (the swan in my mom's lake)





And the all time favorite......NO

She is very attached to mama right now. She thinks she is a permanent fixture on my hip. Not sure if it was from being in strange places on our trip, the ear infection, teeth or a combo of all three. I am sure it will pass and I better enjoy holding her while I can. :)

Katie's Baby Shower

My cousin's wife, Katie, is expecting their first child in September, so I wanted to throw her a little family shower while I was in town. It turned out really nice and I hope she had a great time! I can't wait to meet little Camdyn Katherine!!

I made these for decorations and then for her to put in Camdyn's room.

I thought it turned out so cute!

Monkey Joes

We went to Monkey Joe's with my friend Kelli and her two kiddos, Carter and Campbell. Carter will be 5 in August and Campbell is 2. The kids had a blast, especially Carter and Griffin. They are big buddies now.

Boys will be boys, playing on the race car game

Little A had so much fun too!

Happy Father's Day

We had a nice Father's Day at my mom's house. Aunt Alex (my step sister) and cousin Avery came to visit along with Nanny and Pa.

Cutest Girl Ever

Griff decided the slip and slide might be more fun in the nude

Hanging with the Barlows

We had a little gathering at Grandma's house while Ryan was in town. We had a great time just hanging out and catching up.

All the great grandkids. Griffin, Lily, Ansley and Madison (soon to be one Camdyn will be here in September)

The big kids played in the sprinkler, Ansley was not a fan (hence the personal pool)

Fun at Nanny and Pa's

We have been visiting with Nanny and Pa a few times during our visit and have been having fun each time. Griffin and Ansley love their Nanny and Pa.

SCHS Dinner

I have a lot of blogging to catch up on, so bare with me! Last Friday, my SCHS (Sandy Creek High School) girlfriends got together with our hubbys for a cookout at Jenn's house. It was so nice to see everyone and we had a great time.

Jenn, Holly, me and Kelli. Christine was there too, but we forgot to take a picture of all of us.

Plane Ride to GA

We had a direct flight to Atlanta from Albuquerque (about 3 hours). It was a good flight. We had three seats and just held Ansley. I was pretty nervous about her to be quite honest. She did ok, had a few crying moments. It was her nap time and we even gave her a little benedryl (don't judge) but that didn't work. :)

Oh well...we made it and will be here until the 29th! Say a little prayer for me. Ryan went back yesterday and I go back solo with the babes on the 29th.

Me and my man

Ansley decided to take over Griffin's seat when he went to the bathroom. She LOVED the delta cookies!


sorry for the lack of posts, we are in ga visiting. i thought i would leave yall with a little teaser of whats to come! :)

Birthday Bowling

I decided it would be fun and different to go bowling with the girls for my birthday. I have to say, we had a blast. There were 14 of us, so we spread out over 3 lanes and gave it a whirl. I don't think any of us have bowling careers in our future, but we sure had fun!!
