Beach Life






We just spent a week at my Grandpa and Grandma's beach house in Florida and had a blast!! So much to tell!! Here are some highlights:

- Bella finally met the rest of the Gaines family!
- We spotted a manatee and actually swam right next to it and pet it in the ocean! Amazing!
- We ate yummy blackened grouper and played Taboo.
- Aunt Tracy told hilarious stories about us all...we laughed a lot!
- We chased crabs with flash lights at night and got eaten alive by bugs.
- We laughed at Grandpa Buddy who couldn't do the tongue twister "One Smart Feller, He felt Smart". Try it!
- We saw a dead baby turtle and many turtle nests.
- We took many hammock naps. Those were Bella's favorite!
- We fished off the dock and caught a couple of fish.
- Ty skim boarded successfully.
- Bella spent most of her time with her Auntie's, Gramma's and Grandpa's in the air conditioned house. She appreciated that.
- We pranked my sister Madison who believed a stranger made eerie noises on her window!
- We kayaked and I saw a shark!
- I faced off with a black snake by the outdoor shower. The snake won. I showered inside.
- We floated and swam in the ocean for hours.
- We took many pictures and made many exciting memories!

Bella and I are very excited to be in Florida on Friday to see my family!! ... Especially Bella! :0)

2 Month Stats


Oh to the doctor's we go!!

Length - 23.75in - 90th percentile
Weight - 13lbs 2oz - 95th percentile

She was such a trooper, but I was that nervous, annoying first time mom....taking pictures like the paparazzi and asking 100 times how I could help.

After her shots she was pretty fussy, but all day today she's been great!!


Feelin' good and havin' a ball!

TWO months already!??

REally?? Already?? 2 months?? are ya SuRe?

Insane. I'm a mom. And Bella's my offspring. I have those moments pretty much every day.

Last night she slept almost 6 hours straight! Yeehaww!

The cute sunglasses she's wearing below were so cute on her! She just looked around in them and seemed to enjoy herself! You could see her eyes through them and it was soo funny!


You just might die watching this video... Or be offended. Depends. But I think it's Bella at her finest! That's my girl! :0)

2nd Grade Journal

I was going through my bookshelf and came across my journal from my 2nd grade class. The topic we were to write about was "Anything" and here is what I wrote:

"I wish that I was a supuer student, and I got on time when i'm late and I always got E's in my report card. I really hope that my family and me will not fight ever agin. Some Day I hope that I never teeze any won around me or Near me I just hope that I never be bad I just want to have a Happy family for ever. And some Day that might come true. If I be nice to people than they will be nice to me, and If I do that then my parent's will be proud and might take me some-where."

I laughed out loud after reading that and also thought about how my dream to have a happy family forever came true! Being married in the temple and sealed to my Ty and my Bella forever is the sweetest blessing I could ever enjoy! I feel so strongly that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is real and true, and I am forever grateful to have it in my life.

Now if I can just be nice to people so my parents might take me some-where! :0)

Oh the Joys


She wouldn't take her eyes off the TV

Playing "kick dad in the face". It looks like a fun game. I'll have to try it sometime. :0)

Sleepy Face.

Bella's first baseball game - The Orem Owls won in the bottom of the 9th, 2 strikes, 2 outs, bases loaded, they were down by two runs. It was very exciting.

The tree was like her giant mobile... She would move her head back and forth just to look at it all.

What a ham!

Can't get enough of those sleepy eyes.

Gettin' mad at daddy. So cute!
