Back to Reality

Last week we left on Father's Day to go to Breckenridge, Colorado for a few days.  It has been miserable here for the past few months.  We were sick of the 100 degree days with the 50 mph wind and watching the dirt blow.  Justin flew us to Denver which only took us 2 hours by the way, which was awesome and then rented a car and drove to Breckenridge.  We came home Wednesday night and then it was back to not just 100 degree days but 109 degree days! Ugh! Oh well the vacation was nice while it lasted.
Justin's first Father's Day!  

This is the cabin we stayed at.  It was so beautiful.

We woke up Monday morning to see SNOW!  They got 4-6 inches that day.  It was just incredible.

My screaming child that looks adorable.  I had set her in her little bouncer (key word set) while I was getting ready and then when I looked over to see why she was crying she somehow had worked her way up to standing in her bouncer!  I just kinda found that impressive.  But it looks like we are getting closer to having to strap her into things now.

My sweet little owl.

Jaycee with her little bear we got her.  She pretty much wore her owl hat everyday.  I was just so excited it was cold enough there to let her wear it!

Gorgeous mountains on our way to Leadville.  Leadville isn't very far away from Breckenridge and they have an airport there but it is the highest airport in North America so we wanted to check it out in case we ever come back and want to fly in there.

I love these two!  We pretty much just hung out and relaxed the entire time we were there.  It was so nice.  

Water! And green!  I doubt anyone from around here know what those are but they do exist, I have proof!  It was so nice to see everything so green and water running everywhere.  I usually hate the mountains and are ready to come home but not this time.  I was sad to come home.

Happy Birthday Jaycee!

I cannot believe that Jaycee is already 1 month old!  Yesterday was her 1 month birthday.  She partied pretty hard can't you tell.

Yesterday Jaycee got to go feed the cows and ride in the truck for the first time.  Then our day consisted of getting BBQ since it was thursday, visiting our Aunt Kalee and getting this super cute tooth pillow that her mom made Jaycee for when she starts losing teeth to put under her pillow for the tooth fairy.  Allow I really don't want to even think about her getting that old, it is the cutest thing I've ever seen.  I'll have to take a picture of it and put it up.

So for the past month Jaycee has basically just slept and ate, but as the month went on she now stays awake just a little bit longer during the afternoon and she is playing with/watching her toys that dangle.  She still loves to sit in her bouncer and she has began to not mind her swing quite so bad.  She is beginning to take her pacifier just a little better which still isn't very good.  We made the mistake of not giving it to her til she was almost 2 weeks old because we didn't want her to be one of those kids that are 3 and still sucking on a pacifier, but then we decided she needed it because she was overeating and to get rid of the hiccups.  Well now we fight it everytime we need to take the pacifier and it just takes forever so maybe we'll get better at that.  Last night I did discover that if you put socks on her hands she will suck on the pacifier much better and way longer because the little stinker can't reach up there and block her mouth or reach up and pull it out.  (She doesn't normally wear socks on her hands, just last night her little hands were cold so I put them on her)  

Well we survived one month so I guess since I can't stop her from growing up I'm ready to see what the next one brings and how much she grows and changes!

This is a little old and out of order but Monday she was 4 weeks and we had to document that.

Now I know nobody really cares about anything but Jaycee, but I just had to take a picture of our beautiful no-till cotton.  This is the first cotton crop we have ever had and as of right now I think it just looks wonderful.

Up, up, and away!

The past week has been quite eventful for little miss Jaycee.  Last Sunday June 5, was Jaycee's first time to church.  This is her before we left to church.  Sorry all her pictures are in her carseat but I never remember to take a picture 'til we are about to load up in the car.

Jaycee was 3 weeks old on June 6.
 I didn't want to look at that number 3 either!

Playing on her playmat last week.  She has really started to play with the toys it is so cute.  She kicks and pulls on them.

Griengo is still trying to get her to play ball.  The look on Jaycee's face is like "Man this dog just can't figure it out that I am not going to throw that ball for him and I really don't want that nasty thing beside me."

Now for the big milestone we had this past week.  On Friday night Justin took us flying for the first time.  She just slept the whole time.  She didn't mind the ride at all.

 After we landed she was just hanging out.

There's a First Time for Everything

With our first child comes many firsts in her and our lives.  She has just been the best baby ever and I know that our next kid will probably be the worst!  I know she is spoiling us now.

This was waiting on Daddy to go for our first trip around the farm to see the cotton, corn, and cattle.  
(5 days old)

1st outing which was to Leal's to eat for Grandpa Floyd's birthday.  (5/26/11 - 10 days old)

1st Tummy time which she is holding her head up amazingly well.  She looked like she was doing pushups for a while.  She also is already crawling!  Ok more like scooting inch by inch but it is so cute.  She gets so mad and frustrated that she can't go anywhere and she looks like she's just swimming in place.  (6/1/11 - 2 weeks, 2 days)

Here she is with Auntie Dev after our 1st doctor visit for the day which she had gained 13 ounces since she was born.  She weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces and was 21 inches long.  (6/1/11)

1st real shopping trip in Amarillo.  She was so excited to be going to Babies R Us, can't you tell.  Her foot is wrapped up from her PKU which she did so awesome at.  She did not even cry, I was closer to crying than her but yet she did cry when we had to buckle up in our carseat afterwards. (6/1/11)

1st real bath in our super cute whale bathtub!  (6/2/11 - 2 weeks 3 days)

Daddy Justin has been drilling haygrazer and he let us girls ride with him last night.

1st Tractor ride with Justin planting haygrazer.  She loved the tractor she looked around for a while and then just slept.  It won't be long before she's the one driving the tractor! (6/3/11 - 2 weeks, 4 days)

This picture isn't a first but this morning she was so cute matching her blanket and crashed out.  She's had a long week!
