So I know everyone loves a little freebie every now and then. My BFF Jacquie and her hubby are selling scentsy candles (wickless candles with AMAZING fragrant) I've personally never seen or smelled them but I know people who have them and LOVE them so I am willing to support this venture. Also how can you not support your BFF? lol So in order to get free stuff they have a little system set up so that you can get your name entered into a drawing, you can learn more about that here.
Also I know I have been slacking with the blogging lately but things around our house have been CRAZY (moving totally sucks) and my mom is coming into town tomorrow so there will be more slacking for another week. But after she leaves I promise I'll be better. :)

Here is the most recent picture of Sierra for all of you out there who need to see her cute little face.

Roll Over

She can do it! Just a week after that post that I wrote about Sierra trying to roll over, she surprised me one day. She was laying beside me on her back while I was watching tv and I look over and she is on her tummy!! I was so mad I missed it! But now she is a rolling machine, that's all she does when I put her on her back. It's so funny! She has even gone from her tummy to her back a couple times now, but usually after a few minutes of trying she gets frustratesd and starts crying. It's so cute though. Here is a video for your viewing pleasure...

I have been a big time blogging slacker lately but with good reason! We finally got our house last Wednesday (you know, the one from this post)! AND Eric is starting a new job on Tuesday with Tyco Interational! So much newness going on in our lives! We are really excited about the house and having more room and also about Eric's new job. It will give us more stability, better benefits and most importantly more money to pay for our new mortgage! So hopefully Eric likes it and everything goes well with the company. Here is a picture of our house (the landscaping is kind of pathetic right now and the bay window needs to be washed but i'm afraid i'll fall out of the window doing it haha) But other than that we love it and are excited to make it all pretty on the inside and out. More updates to come!

3 Months Old!

Sierra is 3 months old today! So I thought I better record what she is up to these days because I don't want to forget.
-She is trying so hard to roll over from her back onto her tummy, she'll get herself onto her side and burrow her head into the ground as hard as she can until she can't hold it any longer and then she rolls back over. It is so funny to watch.
-She will scoot around now and push off of things. We find her turned around in her crib now when we go to get her.
-She talks/coos all the time and smiles and laughs especially when you talk to her excitedly
-she sleeps at night on average 7 hrs!
-she loves to hear herself scream. it is so funny. she'll let out a huge scream and then smile huge and do it again louder.
-she LOVES the bath and kicks and moves her hands and arms around so vigorously that her knuckles get red from hitting the side. Then she gets so mad when we take her out!
-she also loves laying on the ground and kicking
-she does not love laying on her stomach-she usually gets frustrated after about 2 minutes and starts crying
-she loves looking at things. Especially her hands, her little bug on her bouncer, and lights.
-she just started closing her mouth when you kiss her on it. she used to always open it the second you got close to it.
-she loves to grab onto my hair and jewelry-not her best talent
-and last but not least sierra is obsessed with sticking her tongue out lately! it is so funny. it is always out and she is always blowing bubbles.
We love our little baby girl so much. She is so much fun and we couldn't imagine our lives without her! She is growing up so fast it is unbelievable!
We tried to get a video of her doing her half roll and burrow but as soon as she saw me taping her she looked at me and then got distracted by the tv. haha
