Night at the cabin!!

We were able to go up to Clay's family's cabin! We had such a great time. We played tons of games, stayed up until wee hours in the morning (felt like old college days) We had YUMMY food. The guys all cooked a delicious dinner. Quite impressive!!!! It was so good to get away for a minute. I wish we could have stayed longer, but I'll take what I can get! We woke up Saturday morning to see a moose walking right by the cabin, it was so neat! LOVE LOVE LOVE the cabin. Hopefully we'll go again soon :)

London and Tate! She tried to steal his toy (it looks like she clawed his eye out...don't worry she didn't)
Cabin tradition playing a little hoop

MY COUSIN LET US BORROW THIS TOY FOR LONDON. WE PUT HER IN IT ON MOTHER'S DAY AND SHE THOUGHT IT WAS THE COOLEST THING EVER; SHE WAS CRUISING AROUND THE KITCHEN.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I HAD A GREAT FIRST MOTHER'S DAY! I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE A MOM AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR SUCH AN AMAZING MOTHER AND MOTHER-IN-LAW! I LOVE MY MOM SO MUCH, SHE IS SUCH A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT A MOM SHOULD BE. I WILL ALWAYS LOOK UP TO HER AND TURN TO HER FOR ADVISE. LOVE YOU MAMA! I ALSO GOT VERY LUCKY TO BE BLESSED WITH SUCH AN INCREDIBLE MOTHER-IN-LAW. SANDI IS SUCH A GREAT LADY AND ALSO AN INCREDIBLE EXAMPLE TO ME. I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE WOMEN IN MY LIFE AND HOPE THAT I CAN FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLES.
CLAY SPOILED ME ROTTEN FOR MY VERY FIRST MOTHER'S DAY. HE TOOK LONDON ALL DAY ON SATURDAY AND I WAS ABLE TO RUN A BUNCH OF ERRANDS AND LOOK AT ANY STORE I WANTED TO WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT WHETHER SHE WAS HUNGRY OR TIRED OR MESSY. PLUS I WAS ABLE TO GET A MASSAGE...IT WAS A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN! AND THEN ON MOTHER'S DAY I OPEN A CARD FROM CLAY SAYING THAT I GET TO PICK OUT THIS NECKLACE THAT I HAVE BEEN WANTING FOR A REALLY LONG TIME :) YAY, I AM SO EXCITED, I'LL POST IT WHEN I GET IT!!!

I MADE THIS APRON FOR MY MOM, SHE LOOKS DARLING, DON'T YA THINK :)
DAD AND HIS MAMA

THIS IS GRANDMOTHER'S DAY TOO

9 Months old and getting into EVERYTHING!

London is growing so fast, she is cruising around the house and exploring everything around her. She is getting so smart, she knows just how to get exactly what she wants. She has been sleeping better in her own room though :) and taking naps in her crib and less in her swing. Her swing has been the BEST investment ever. She loves it so much, and when she naps in her swing she always sleeps longer. She is such a sweetheart! I love her so much!
A LITTLE UPDATE...
She's pulling herself on everything
She's eating more "adult" food
She's still loving her binki :(
She's LOVES to read her peek a boo and pop-up book!
She loves to be the center of attention
She throws tantrums
She eats like a horse
She loves any and all food put in front of her
She is babbling all of the time, it's so cute
She loves to play with cords
She still only has two teeth
She has lots of hair, almost pigtail ready :)
Loves to bite on the spatula
Loves stroller rides
She cruises as fast as she can if anyone open a door. She loves to be outside


LOVES TO PULL ALL OF HER TOYS OUT
I THINK LONDON IS IN HEAVEN YOU'D THINK SHE OWNED THIS PLACE, TOYS EVERYWHERE!!
I THOUGHT THIS WAS SO FUNNY, IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS GIVING HER DOLL A KISS
YES, IT IS GATE TIME
BEST BUDS


london's FIRST b-day party for a friend

It was Brea's (Sarah's little girl) FIRST birthday last weekend. It was so cute!!! I was such an excited mom to take her to her first ever friend b-day party. It was a strawberry shortcake theme, the cake was DARLING!! It was a bunch of proud mom's with their kids :) Thanks for inviting us Brea! Happy Birthday
Right... it only looks like I gave her cake. I'm a mean mom, no cake for Londy, YET
Yes, my family gives me a hard time about not giving London sugar, but I will hold strong. She doesn't know the difference between sugar and veggies and she won't until she's old enough to ask for it. Don't worry though, I won't always deprive her of treats so that she binges at the neighbors house. She is such a good eater that I don't want to ruin it. Is there anyone else out there with me on this, or am I the only "mean" mom?
Cutest thing ever!!
Proud mom's :) and our kids!
Digging into her first b-day cake!!
My awesome friends!

Visiting Grandpa and Sheryl

London and Clay and I went up this past weekend to visit Clint and Sheryl. They seem to be doing pretty good. Clint had two surgeries in the past couple of months so he is hanging in there ready to live life again, but he looks good and hopefully will recover quickly.
Clay helped Clint buy a riding lawn mower, and he put it all together and showed Clint how to run it, and use all of the switches and knobs. Clay was drooling over this mower, someday, someday, someday!!!
good to see you guys, love ya!!

Clay, London and I were able to go up to Salt Lake and see one of my best friends Karalee's art show. She graduated from the U this past week YAY!!! Congrats Lee Lee :) She is absolutely amazing. Below are some of the things she has photographed, these pictures don't do them justice, but they still show her creativeness. So good to see you Kare, love ya, and thanks for inviting us up!!!!!

NEW TOY

SHE LOVES THIS BAG! ANYTHING TO MAKE NOISE.

9 month check up

London had her 9 MONTH Check up last week. The doctor says everything looks great! She's growing right on track and seems to be healthy!
Weight- 65% at
Height- 45% at
Head- 25% (this has been consistent since she was born, she has the Cardon head)
She had one HEP B shot left, she didn't cry at all, I don't even think she knew they did it!
good job Mandie :) Of course she's trying to eat the band-aid off of her toe.


THIS IS US WATING FOR THE DOCTOR
STEP ONE
THINKING ABOUT WHAT ALL SHE CAN DO WITH THIS PAPER
STEP TWO
IT'S JUST THE BEGINNING
STEP THREE
GOING TO TOWN ON THE PAPER, I COULDN'T STOP HER. BY THE END OF THIS APPOINTMENT THE WHOLE ENTIRE ROLL OF PAPER WAS ON THE GROUND. SHE COULDN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT. I PULLED IT OFF THE TABLE SO SHE WOULDN'T WASTE IT AND THEN SHE DISCOVERED THERE WAS A CORD PLUGGED INTO THE OUTLET RIGHT BY HER HEAD SO SHE TRIED TO PULL THAT OUT. IT WAS QUITE THE EXPERIENCE AT THE DOCTOR. RIGHT BEFORE WE LEFT TO GO TO THE DOCTER SHE ROLLED OFF THE BED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. I DON'T KNOW IF MY SCREAM, OR HER HITTING THE GROUND SCARED HER MORE. IT WAS SO SCARY!!!
YES SHE IS CRAWLING!!!! FIRST DAY WAS APRIL 12TH
WOA!!

TIme with grandma and grandpa's!!

London and I met up with mom and dad for lunch the other day. It was so good to spend time with them. I feel like I have seen near as much of them lately. We usually go up every sunday but the past few we haven't gone up for a combination of reasons so it was good to see them both! London sure does love both grandma's and grandpa's she is one SPOILED GIRL!!! and very lucky to have so many people who love her!!
sitting in a high all by herself!!! (second time ever)
lunch with grandma and grandpa
Gosh I love her!!!

Hanging with Grandpa Barnes at daddy's softball game! She loves it outside so the games are fun! (until she can walk and then I might change my mind about that)

Lonon's latests

Stroller ride!! She LOVES LOVES LOVES stroller rides. Clay and I have been going on stroller walks Sunday afternoons. It is so nice to just talk and enjoy the warm weather. Sandi and Blair came with us last Sunday. It was beautiful outside. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE WEATHER IS NICE EVERYDAY :)
DO YOU THINK SHE'S RELAXED??? YES, SHE PUT HER LEG UP LIKE THAT ON HER OWN
SANDI WAS PUSHING LONDY AND ALL OF A SUDDEN LONDON SLIPPED RIGHT UNDER THE TRAY AND FELL ON THE GROUND. THE FUNNY PART WAS THAT SHE ACTED LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED, SHE JUST SAT THERE AND LOOKED AROUND. IT WAS SO FUNNY


CHECK OUT THOSE THIGHS
SHE LOVES THIS AS A TOY, NOT AS A NOSE CLEANER. SHE SCREAMS IF I EVEN TRY TO GET CLOSE TO HER NOSE, BUT SHE LOVES TO PLAY WITH IT

I went to wake London up the other morning and this is the hairdo I found. I think she must have been a little too hot during the night
