Kapri and Addison's Blessing..

I love my MAMA!! (She told me so, incase you were wondering how I might know such a thing!!!)
Thank you for blessing me Uncle Shawn!! (No his eyes are not closed for all of you wondering. We took about ten pictures and his eyes are the least closed in this one.)
The girls with Grandpa Cliff. I tell ya, it was like taking the picture of a three year old. I'd say look at the camera and smile, he'd start talking or look away, or laugh. He's lucky we even got one worth showing.. darn him.

Secretly, I think he's her favorite. She told me that too.
Team McPherron, we kick butt in the "coolness" contest.
Kapri with Grandma and Grandpa Wanke.
The girls with Aunt Kristi.
Grandma and Papa!!

In the end, it was a day full of delicious food, crazy family and cute babies!!

The bigger the flower, the better!!

We like big BOWS and we cannot lie.. you other brothas can't deny.. when a kid gets carried in with an itty bitty head and a big flower in her face you... yeah. We like 'em big.

So, Aubrie taught Kapri some sign language. If only I could remember what it means.. hmmm.. nope, its gone forever.

There's nothing better than this face...

I don't think anyone could have told me how much I would love this kid. Seriously, its beyond words. I've found out that being a mom is the best feeling in the world.. and sometimes the worst. I love watching her grow and learn new things. I never get bored with her cooing and babbling. I can't even get mad at her when she wakes up at 5 in the morning because she always lets out a huge grin, as if she's so happy to see me. On the other end of the spectrum, I've never worried about something so much in my entire life. Cody and I are responsible for how she turns out, thats a scary thought. I guess all I can do is hope that we raise her to be respectful, humble, caring and loyal. I'll do a little finger crossing too though, just incase it might help.


Grandma brought Addie and Kapri suckers from Disneyland.. and they sure did enjoy them!! For all you people who are going to tell me that I shouldn't be feeding my 4 month old a sucker.. save it.. cause I already know. But how do you deny them the deliciousness???

P.S. I got a new hair cut. :)

Num Nums!!

Fruit.. MMMMM!!! Shonni made delicious fruit dip (technically Josh made it, which is why it was "half" mixed. He got tired of it so gave up prematurely, but it still tasted great) and we devoured it, of course. I took a few pictures to show the delicious-ness.

Kapri got to wear her new outfit from Aunt Janice, so we had to take a million pictures of her. (Thank you!!)

Jalynn decided to sneak Kapri her first strawberry.. she enjoyed every moment!!

Addison got to enjoy an apple.. not nearly as delicious as a strawberry but she's younger. Baby steps here people.

Big dogs, small dogs, fat dogs, skinny dogs...

So last Sunday we ventured out to West Jordan to see the new dog park, which by the way is GINORMOUS!! Kelley and Elizabeth (Cody's cousins) met us there with Louie and Coal.. and Deana (my bestie) came with Lucky. Other than the gosh darn wind it was a gorgeous day. And, surprise surprise, we brought along the new camera. Cause whats a girl to do with a new camera? Take millions of pictures of course.

Spanky begging me to throw the ball..

"Spanky, what do we do before I throw the ball?"

"Good Boy!!" Ooh ooh, I'm so excited. Throw it, throw it!! (If you have met my dog you would understand that at this point he is DYING for me to throw the ball.)

He can't even wait for me to throw it before he takes off.

And he's off.. to fetch the ball.. again, and again.

So... drum roll.. I GOT A NEW CAMERA!! A Nikon D60 SLR, freaking fabulous!! Yep, early anniversary present from the BEST HUBBY IN THE WORLD!!! I'm soooo excited.. its ridiculous. As if I didn't take enough pictures before, now I take even more!!

I've found my new love.. photography. So I'm not that great yet, but I think I have potential. I am going to be taking some classes and hopefully learning more about it, its my new obsession!!

Sleeping baby...

Whats the deal?? Why is it that whenever you want your baby to sleep they wake up to the smallest noise, but.. when its 8 o'clock at night and you want them to wake up from their "evening nap" so that they'll go to sleep by their bedtime at 9, they WON'T WAKE UP!! I've done everything from shaking her bed (not violently people, calm down) to giving her kisses all over her face and neck (not in a sweet and lovey way, but a mauling and bugging way). She gives me the "you're so annoying mom" squirm but then goes right back into a deep, I don't feel like waking up now, snooze. Man I love her.. seriously.. I love her so much. Its a little scary.

Loooong Beautiful Hair!!!

Its that time again.. Traci wants long hair!! I am not surprised, nor am I disappointed. I actually love putting in extensions. We had to do them on a day when Cody was at work, which means no babysitter. So.. after a few "feed the baby, change the baby, entertain the baby" short breaks and one longer "pick up Koston from school" break.. we finished!! They look freaking FANTASTIC, if I might say so myself. :)
