Oh hey, Friday! Pics from the week!

And as you read this, Hallie and I are on the road with Joyce for a fun girls weekend! (Well sort of)
We are heading towards NASA Space Station to see my friend Callie and her family! They just built a new house and it has been FOREVER since we have seen them! Looking forward to some time with good great friends!

So happy Friday! I hope you enjoy our pics from the week!

It finally did snow for like 5 minutes, so I bundled up Hallie and took her out to see it!
She was a lot Happier inside though! 
Favorite toy!

Pics from my phone

Like I said yesterday,  we haven't gotten out much in the last few days! Which also means there's not a whole lot for me to write about! So for today,  I hope you enjoy pictures from my phone!
I'll be back tomorrow with Oh hey, Friday Pics!
Have a great Thursday!

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 iced in!

We have been iced in here in Dallas the last few days! Yes, here in Dallas we don't get snow...just big sheets of black ice that make it unsafe to travel because we are Texans who have no idea how to travel in 1 inch of ice, so schools shut down and everyone hunkers down for days until there is no trace of it!
So Hallie and I have been cooped up all day for the last 2 days! (Daddy still had to work!)
 Here is what we have been doing:

On Sunday, we knew the weather was coming so we prepared! Hallie and I played while Daddy was kind enough to make our favorite cold weather meal:
 Tortilla Soup! Check out the recipe here!

Don't be fooled friends...that is all ice!
 Hallie and I have spent the last 2 days in PJs! Day One!
Day 2! Hallie had a bath Monday night and got in new PJs, which we stayed in all day yesterday!

That's what snow ice days are for, right?!
Last night the roads were cleared up a little and when Christopher got home from work he treated us to dinner since we had been cooped up for so long! I think Hallie missed being out because she was babbling and talking to everyone who walked by! 

Unfortunately more sleet fell overnight, so we are stuck in again today.  Trying to figure out what to do to make it fun! Any ideas Mommas? 

Hope everyone is having a more exciting week than us!! 
Take care!

8 Months of Hallie Anne

8 months!? Before I know it this kid is going to be learning to drive and then graduating! I love my sweet girl though! She may be teeny, but she is still getting so big in my eyes! 

  • Age- 8 months! (Seriously...getting too too close to one for Mommy's liking!)
  • Weight-  We were excused from a weight check this month, but I would guess about 13.5 lbs
  • Length- Long and skinny still! No check up this month.  
  • Size- Size 1 Diapers! Onesies- 3 month or 3-6 Months Ts!  Pants- the waist on the 3-6 month are too big, but the length on the 3's are too small...LIMBO!  PJs 6 month for length..though they are still big and when she crawls in them, sometimes she get's the "Mermaid Tail" 
  • Eyes- Still blue! Yay!!! 
  • Hair- Getting longer and lighter each month! 
  • Sleeping- Usually 10-12 hours.  She has been waking up once in the night scared and doesn't like being alone, but will normally go back to sleep...most nights! 2-3 naps a day.
  • Eating- 26 oz a day. And anything else she can get her hands on! She wants EVERYTHING mommy eats! Loves yogurt, pasta, bread, rice, chicken, veggies, avocado, turkey, berries and puffs!
  • Milestones- Crawling and pulling up on EVERYTHING! She can even walk holding on.  Loves singing and dancing. Still no teeth! 
  • Words she can say: Hi, Hey, Mama, Dada, Bye Bye and "Ey-ya"- Which means "Stella" because she will shout it at the dog!
  •  Memorable outings- Playgroup, Valentines Party and Luna's first birthday! 
  • Favorite toys/activities- Prayer Bunny Still loves her turtle which we have named Dewy, Taggie elephant and princess dolly.  Also: Puppets and loves books! A girl after my own heart! We read before bed every night! She got a Children's Bible for her Baptism, and we always do that before bed with a prayer. Also loves the rhymes we do at story time! Particularly (Tick Tock,Horse named Ron and Patty Cake!) Loves to play with Stella.  DANCING! She loves to shake it! Especially with Daddy! She also really enjoys listening to music. WALKING with help! Seriously it makes her sooo happy! Loves dressing up! Beads and shoes! She is SUCH a social butterfly and loves to play with her friends! 
  • Nicknames- I call her sweet pea, peanut, peanut butter, sweet girl or Hal...Daddy likes to call her Daniel son when I put headbands on her...but other than that sticks to a generic sweetie or cutie!
  • Funny moments- When I am eating, she like to open her mouth and get close to mine...I guess she thinks I am going to "baby bird" her the not happening! 
  • Looking forward to- Each minute with her! She is growing up WAY too fast! Trip to Houston to visit Auntie Callie and her boys!
