Silly Noises

We're really into taking videos of Sierra lately because she is changing so quickly! This one is a little dark and fuzzy but pretty amusing. She does the most random hilarious sounds so we had to catch them on video before she grows out of this stage.

Big Girl Bath

***warning-this post contains nudity***

Lately Sierra has been getting too big to have a bath in the sink. Her feet always hit the side and I have to keep pushing her back on the ramp thing. So yesterday I bathed her in the big girl tub. She loved being in the water. Eric wasn't there so I took a video of it for him. I sound gay but she looks so cute kicking and splashing.

60 signatures later...

we put an offer on a house! Our first one. We offered lower than the asking price (obviously, since it's a buyers market) so I'm really antsy to hear back and see what they say. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Bye-Bye Brando!

We just got back yesterday from visiting my family in Canada. We went up for my little brother's mission farewell. I can't believe he's old enough to be on a mission because he is still just a little boy in my mind. I am so proud of him though and hope the time goes by fast for him and us! He is serving in the Sacramento, California mission.

While we were there Sierra got to meet lots of family and friends. She also really started smiling and laughing a lot. It was really fun to be home and I was sad to leave, especially since my parents had to say goodbye to their son and new grandaughter all in one day. Torture! Here are some pictures of our fun week.

they grow up so fast...

Okay, so Sierra is only 1 month old but seriously! When people say kids grow up so fast it's so true! My little munchie already looks so different from when we first brought her home. Her cheeks are filling out and she fits into new born clothes now and not just preemie! (those still fit too though) It's so sad but so exciting to see her change so much.

look at that little cheek!

While my family was here meeting our little Sierra my sister Heather-the amazing photographer-took some really cute pictures of her. With the help of my mom and little sister we got her in some creative poses and they turned out so good. I am so happy we have these pictures of her from when she is a brand new baby. Thanks Heather!

Blessing Day

We had Sierra blessed on July 20th. It was such a special day and Eric did such a beautiful job with the blessing-I loved it so much! It was so cool to have so much of our family there for it. Sierra wore my blessing dress-it was a little big on her but she was so cute!
