Good job cousin Tyler!

Today we went to cousin Tyler's graduation from Simla. We are so proud of him...he is headed to West Point next month...we sure are going to miss him.

Refining my palate

I just got done trying something (well attempting to try something) called rice cereal.

I'm not sure yet if I liked it or not, but it sure was fun!

Mom is a rookie when it comes to trying to feed me this stuff!

Maybe tomorrow night we'll try some in my bottle!

Sunny days are here!

Warning...the following pictures may be too cute for some to handle!

Mom and Dad had a bunch of yard work to do today, so I dressed for the occasion and went out with them for a little while.

My monsters are so glad sunny days are here too!

When it was time for me to go in, Mom heard me fussing on the baby monitor, so she decided I could go back out for a little while longer...she got my hat back on and got me bundled back up and ran to the other room for a minute...when she came back I was asleep. Apparently all I needed was my floppy hat...I seem to love it (notice i have the brim clenched in my fist)!

My big girl chair...

Hmmm...they call this thing a Bumbo...I think I'm going to like it!

So big!

Mom says I'm getting to be so big...and that I must be going through a "cute spurt"...she says that's like a growth spurt where I get even cuter!

I am a really happy girl and all smiles most of time. I'll even let out a little giggle every once in awhile...maybe I'll cooperate for the camera and let Mom get video of it for all of you to see!

I love toys!

Over the past several weeks I have really started to take interest in some of my toys! I love to stretch out on a blanket and kick and squirm while Mom and Dad play toys with me. Lacy loves my toys too...we have to watch her you know!

My bugs and butterfly friends on my car seat were my first toys that I was introduced to when I was only about a month old. They go everywhere with me and are for sure some of my favorites, I think I could stare at them for hours! Here I am this morning, with my purse, all ready to go to breakfast and shopping with the girls! Mom, Aunt Katie, Suz and I went to Mimi's for breakfast and then went bridesmaid and wedding dress shopping for Aunt Katie's wedding. I was a really good girl! I think I must like shopping...Dad says with this group I better get used to it!

My monsters

We lovingly refer to my puppies as my monsters. My monsters absolutely adore me and I absolutely love them back!

Lucy is my protector, always by my side watching over me. From the second I came home from the hospital Lucy's been taking care of me. When I had to go to the doctor the day after I came home, Grandma said that my Lucy sat by the window and whined.

Lacy wasn't so sure of me at fact my first few days she would run and hide when I cried. Obvisouly it didn't take her long to get over that! Lacy loves to lick me all over and I think it's pretty fun when she does! She's also a major bop thief...she's always snatching it away from me when Mom isn't looking.

I'm so glad I have them to love and take care of me!

Meet my friend Alice

Tonight we BBQ'd with Mommy and Daddy's SFP friends. I got to meet my friend Alice. Mommy and Alice's Mommy Melissa had the same due date, but I was two weeks early and Alice was two weeks late.

Future Ram

This weekend I visited where my Mom told me that in 18 years I will pack my bags and move...CSU. Mom, Grandma and I went to cousin Kendra's graduation!

Here I am with my canine cousin, puppy Kooper. We loved each other!

I had my very first hotel stay...the Holiday Inn...loved it!

The morning after graduation the family went to the Silver Grill for breakfast. Mom says that their cinnamon roll french toast is the best breakfast in the whole world!

Mother's Day

Today was my first Mommy's Day and it was a great day! Just had to check cows this morning, so me and the girls enjoyed a little sleeping in and snuggle time (yes, I let Lucy and Lacy in our bed...on Justin's side)!

Then I decided since it was Mother's Day I could eat whatever I wanted for breakfast...

Cream puffs and diet Coke, maybe not the breakfast of champions, but so good!

Tressie and Just got me the best gift ever - a sterling silver bracelet with Tressie's name and birthday engraved on it.

We went to Aunt Kim and Uncle Jerry's for lunch and enjoyed the beautiful sunny day with our family. Then me and Just came home and worked on the yard. I couldn't have asked for a better day!

I love being Tressie's mommy so much!

Babies all around!

Today we went to Sterling to visit some of our best friends, the Knutsons - Shaun, Jocelyn and new baby Kaleb! Our good friends the Nortons - Kevin, Staci and 11-month-old Quinn, also made the trip from Kersey.

The happy new mommies!

The proud new daddies!

Love at first sight?!?! We're pretty sure that Tressie and Kaleb will probably grow up, fall madly in love and get married! : )

Kaleb and Tressie in their matching outfits! (Yes, she will grow up and hate me for this bow!)

The babies...can't wait to watch them grow up together!

Quinn getting to know Tressie!

It was such a great day! I just had to giggle to myself as we were all sitting there, babies all, my, oh how the dynamics of our group have changed in a few short months! We are truly blessed!

Rockin' my new kicks!

I had a Baby Beans are still way too big, so I was a girl without boots. I know what you're thinking, OH NO, what is little Tressie to do?!?!

Aunt Katie to the rescue with a new pair of boots that fit me now!!!

Movin' and Shakin' at Two-Months-Old

I turned two-months-old on Saturday. I had my doctor's appointment today and it went good...well except for when I got jabbed in my skinny little thighs twice...I didn't like that any too much. I weigh 9 pounds 6 ounces and Dr. Hoover says I'm growing good!

Mom and Dad got me this awesome play gym this weekend and I think it is so much fun! I love laying there kicking and squirming, reaching for and grabbing all the toys. The middle toy plays music when I pull it and I'm pretty good at getting it to sound off!

Tummy time doesn't last very long because when Mom puts me on my tummy I just roll on over!

I'm all set!

Thanks to Harold, Jean, Jake and Jade Meinzer, I'm all set for life on the ranch!

I'm pretty excited to show you my gift from them!

Here it cowgirl very own spurs and pink Cactus rope!

Lucy and Lacy, consider yourselves warned...I think I'll start with you and then move onto the goats!

Remember my Anderson Bean boots that Mom showed you even before I was born?!? Well, the spurs are a perfect fit!

I think I'll be a pretty good hand for Dad and Grandpa!
