Learning to brush our teeth!

Carlyn now has 7 teeth, three of which have come in the last month! We let her play around with her toothbrush before, and had brushed them with water, but we just recently started introducing how to REALLY brush our teeth every night. We started with water, and then used bubblegum toothpaste! I let her taste it and play with her toothbrush before we brushed her teeth. She did great! Let's hope this starts an early healthy habit!


On March 27th our good friends, Colton and Megan got married! I took a few pictures with my new camera! Jason and I were both in the wedding and we couldn't have been happier! Congrats to the Bagnoli's...we love you!

The gorgeous bride!

Three years!

Three years ago today, I said the best two words I've ever said..."I Do"! I am so blessed to have the husband I do! We didn't do much for our anniversary this year, we had a yummy fantastic dinner! We have been through so much, and this past year was probabley held some of the biggest changes! I can't wait to see what the years bring, and how much our love grows! 3 years down...forever to go! I can't wait!

Zoo Time!

The weather here in Arizona is getting BeAuTiFuL! Jason and I really wanted to take Carlyn to the zoo on her birthday, but since she was sick, we had to wait! She loved the petting zoo after some encourgement from her daddy! I took her on the carousel before we left, and she thought it was so much fun! I love this time of year, and am not looking forward the the HOT season that is about to come!

Aloha Festival

The Aloha Festival was in town at Tempe Marketplace. My mom, sister, and I decided we would go and see what it was all about. There was lots of yummy food and delicious hawaiian shaved ice! Carlyn got to run around, and it was beautiful outside! All in all...a fun day!
She kept playing a game with my sister...she'd walk away, then run back and fall on her auntie Pam!
Kisses for Granny!

We Officially Have a Walker!

Carlyn started walking today...while I was at work, of course...but I got to see her when I got home. She ran to me, gave me a hug and kiss, and then said "down"! She is walking EVERYWHERE!!!

She's 1!!!

I can't believe my little girl is 1! It's amazing how fast it really goes by. Carlyn is doing wonderful. She weighs about 22 lbs, and we were finally able to turn her car seat around (per her doctors) and she LOVES it! She is in the 90th percentile for her height! She is learning something new everyday...and still is insistant upon repeating EVERYTHING we say! Her new words include balloon, button, baby, hot, woah!, more, please, mine, and my favorite...CARLYN!!! She's so cute, she points to herself and says her own name! She is still working on the C sound, so it comes out Talyn, but it's pretty clear she's trying to say her name! She's such a talker! She is starting to walk a little more...but only from me or Jason to the couch or to someone else. She hasn't just taken off yet! Soon, I think! She loves to KISS everything!!! The dog, the cat, your knee, your cheek, her baby doll...whatever is there, she will kiss! That's my favorite part...I love the kisses!

I didn't think I would, but I had a really hard time with 1! Why?! I thought I'd be nothing but excited, but I was sad that I was loosing the "baby" in her! I cried to my mom, who then said "One day you'll look at her and think...oh my gosh...SHE has a baby that is turning one!" WHAT?! That just made me cry even more! It's not that I miss having A baby around, just her as a baby! I am so excited for the months to come, things will just get more fun and exciting! It's just hard to let go of that phase! Kindergarden will be VERY hard for me! These are all pictures from the last month!

Let's Party...or not?!

Carlyn has the best family and friends a little girl could ask for! Her birthday party was great! Thanks to everyone who came! We did a cookie monster theme, since that is what Carlyn loves right now! Everything turned out great, and it was beautiful outside, so all the kids could play! Here are a few pictures of the party! She got a lot of presents, including a pink fishing pole and a camouflage puppy!
Unfortunatley, Carlyn got sick after her party and started to get a fever. Her fever went up to 104.5! I tried to think like a logical RN, but at that moment, I wasn't a nurse, I was a MOM! We gave her a cool bath, and her temperature went down enough to calm me down. For the next three days...including her actual birthday...she just slept and cried. She wouldn't eat, drink, or play! She was definitley not acting like herself. I was so worried. On Tuesday night, we went to urgent care. They tested her urine, but it was clean. They think it was Roseola...a virus that kids get. She broke out in a rash the next day, and started to feel much better! My poor baby girl. Here is a picture of her at her first trip to the urgent care!

Happy Birthday Carlyn...we love you more than words can every say! There are too many things we love about you...your kisses, your laugh, the way you try SO hard to talk, and your infectious smile!
