It's been awhile...

A lot has happened in the past few months. Londyn especially! She is getting so big (literally)! Jon took her to her 15 month check-up (yeah, she's 19 months, whoops!)and she is so tall. She is 34.5 inches tall (98%) and 27 lbs (95%). It's funny considering Jon and I are both the shortest in our families (5'4 and 5'11). But, she's got LOTS of tall people on both sides of her family. Jon thinks it's so funny to tell me she's going to grow up and be a basketball player or ride dirt bikes (no offense, but please no). I like to think she's going to be a model ;) and considering my sister's and Jon's sister and mom, I think it's definitely possible! haha. Anyways, she is quite a piece of work. She is the BUSIEST BEE in the world!!! Not kidding, if she doesn't take it down a notch soon, she might be going on Ritalin. But, on the plus side, she makes it so I don't have to exercise. She keeps me on my toes. She is absolutely HILARIOUS! She takes her little chubby finger and shakes it at me and says, "NO NO MAMA!!" I can't help but laugh every time. She has more sass in that chubby finger than most people do in their whole body. She will have a full on jibberish conversation with you like she's really speaking english. And then after she's done, I'll say okay, and then she nod at me and say "okay?" Like, "you got it, mom or do I need to repeat myself?"
She was being so naughty this day I was very close to putting her up for adoption ;)
Walking around the Draper temple with her favorite person.
I take my eye off of her for 2 seconds in Target, and turn the corner to find her trying on "gasses."
She was a BUSY bee for Halloween
Doing a very intense "CHHEEESSSEEEE!"
It snowed non-stop for two days a few weeks ago. We took Londy sledding and played in the snow all morning. She was obsessed!
I just really love this face
I went to Vegas last month for a week for Kenzi's baby shower/vacation. Jon wasn't able to come with Londy and I but we had so much fun hanging out with family everyday and Londy loved being spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa.
We went over to Shea's house one day and Hadlee took Londy for a ride in her Jeep. I was dying laughing because Hadlee was running up curbs, reversing into rocks, going over huge bumps. She was taking Londy for the ride of her life. Obviously you can see she didn't mind.
For my mom's birthday she wanted all us kids and grand kids to sleepover her house. Here are all the grand kids in the Christmas outfits Grandma gave them. They thought this sleepover was the best thing ever. We ordered pizza, ate homemade cinnamon rolls, my mom bought the movie Brave and all the kids watched it upstairs on her bed. Londy even joined and thought she was such a big kid. In the morning, all the kids went to the park and then we went bowling in the afternoon. That night, we all got babysitters for the kids and the adults went to a movie. I love my family and I wish I lived in Vegas. It's so hard to be the only one away, but I makes being around them even that more special.
Helping her favorite Auntie Patti with her tree.
Having fun in Wal-Mart.
She wore these glasses almost the entire time at church last week. They are not the best looking glasses and she looks a little handicapped with them on haha. It was too funny!

My BG at 16 months

This little girl makes me laugh all the time. She has such a funny little personality. Last night we had a meeting with the bishop to get our temple recommends renewed and we couldn't find anyone to babysit for us so she came with us. We all started standing up to leave and she threw her arms in the air and said, "Let's go!" She must have been really anxious to get out of there. And then she saw a picture of Jesus and said, "DaDa?" Probably because Jon has a beard almost all the time. We were dying. Here is what she is doing as of 16 months. 1. She has four teeth on top and six teeth on bottom (2 molars and 4 teeth in front) 2. She loves chicken nuggets (has to dip them in ketchup or won't eat them), yogurt, any type of fruit, peas, noodles, any type of drink, eggos, pb& js, quesadillas, potatoes, corn, goldfish, and fruit snacks. She pretty much hates all vegetables. 3. She says so many words now. She picks up a new word everyday! She knows almost all the animal sounds, if you ask her where her eyes, nose, ears, hair, teeth, fingers, tongue, toes and belly are she can point to them. 4. She's OBSESSED with DORA!!! She says Dora constantly. I think she just likes her name more than the actual show. She also loves Curious George, Sesame Street and Yo Gabba Gabba (which I loathe). 5. She can say ball, Mama, Dada, let's go or go, Dora, please, thanks, NO, cheese, bottle, grandma, papa, shoes, choo choo (for any type of loud machine) and a few more that I can't think of right now. 6. She LOVES putting on mine or Jon's shoes. 7. She hates getting her diaper changed. I probably lose 300 calories by trying to put on her diaper. We have to shut every door so she can't escape the room. If you don't put it on fast enough she will pee all over the floor and/or bed. 8. She loves taking baths or showers. If me or Jon are in the shower and she hears you get in, she will knock on the door or scream until you let her in. 9. She hates high chairs or car seats. She thinks she's 5 years old most of the time. 10. LOVES DOGS!! She is not scared of them at all. 11. She probably has the cutest laugh and teeth you have ever seen. 12. She is so so SASSY!! 13. She loves wearing my bracelets and hats. 14. She stares at people all the time. We will be at a restaurant and she will just be staring at the strangers next to us. 15. She is very tall. 16. I love her eyebrows and her dark hair. She is the most beautiful little girl I've ever seen. And I'm so glad to be her mom!! Here she is jumping off the side of the pool. She loves the water and can swim with her floaties all by herself.
Splashing in the water and flashing everyone.
Is there really anything cuter than a little girl in a bikini? I don't think so.
Attempting to ride the scooter at Auntie Patti's.
Throwing a tantrum.
This girl loves the park/slides. She never wants any help going down but you better be cheering her on when she reaches the bottom.
Stopped on her way up to the slide to say, "CHEEEESSEEEE!!" She went all the way up this slide and rode down it all by herself. It doesn't look that tall in this pic but it was a very high slide. She's not scared of anything. Except for the bell that rings in church when class is over. She literally jumps out of her skin every time. I die laughing and so does everyone in Relief Society.
Cutest picture of the cutest people.
She was giggling up a storm on the swing. It must have been tickling her stomach a lot. Or her ears. My stomach never tickles, its always my ears. It's unique I know.
Enjoying slurpees outside together. Nothing better.
My BG for life.

Summer 2012

This summer has been so busy and so much fun! Londyn has been a blast and it's sad to say it's almost over! My parent's, Gavin and Reese came up for the 4th. Here are my parents, Gavin and Reese and my cousin's kids, Zaida and Hendrix at Wheeler Farm. Londyn did not want to participate in this photo.
On the tractor. She did not want me to sit up there with her. Such a little stink.
She wasn't feeling the horse either. Let's just say she enjoyed the mulch more than anything.
In our 4th of July attire
We also went to City Creek and she thoroughly enjoyed getting wet.
Jon took Londyn to California to visit his parent's while I was in Wyoming for work for a week. To say she had blast would be an understatement. Here are the two goofballs on the airplane.
She was first introduced to corn on the cob...and cats. Please excuse her cockatoo hair.
She rode the carousal for the first time.
And she ran through the grass like a wild woman.
We went to Lake Powell the end of June. My favorite place in all the world. Grandma Ellen was so nice to come up to SLC and stay with Londy while we partied our little hearts out.
We took Londy to the Hogle Zoo and she loved seeing all the animals and making all their sounds.
We went to Vegas this past weekend for my cousin's farewell. Here is Londyn on the drive down. This girl knows how to chill. She's got her favorite snack, sippy, and Dora. She was in serious relaxation mode with a very serious slick back.
We did lots of swimming while we were there and spent a day at the lake.
And here are just some randy's that I thought were cute..
