Happy Easter!

I wanted a picture of our family on Easter this year but of course there was no one to take one of us so I had to set the camera on a ledge in our kitchen lol. So not the best picture but it'll do! We brought our camera to church to have someone else take some of our family but of course by the time church is done we're tired, ready to go home and Sierra's bow is pulled apart. haha

Hideous of us, cute of Sierra

We went to Eric's parents for easter dinner which was delicious as usual and Eric's mom had the cutest Easter baskets for us, complete with some MAC makeup for the girls. So we were happy campers!

Uncle Kye with 'the girl'

Grandpa with his little bunny

Eric's dad has started doing this kissy thing to Sierra's cheek and it's so funny because she just sits still and stares while he does it. Pretty much the only time she'll sit still. hah We got a little video of it on easter:

We found a cute little bunny in our backyard on Easter

Thursday night we had a surprise party for Eric's mom. While we waited for Eric's dad to arrive with her, Sierra played with the doggies. She fits right in with them. They're just her size. haha Diego (the black dog) follows her around everywhere and has since she was born. It's pretty funny.

We all hid and blasted Eric's mom with silly string when she came in.

With my imitation Olive Garden Lemon Cream Cake

My sister in law, Ashley and her husband got bride and groom hats for their wedding and they managed to resurface during the party...

Alyssa admiring her groom

The not so happy couple and their child...hahaha

And that pretty much sums up the party. Good times.

When we bought our house the floors were not horrible but not exactly attractive. Eric planned on laying new wood floors when we moved in. He did the kitchen soon after but took a little longer to do the entry way and still has yet to do the main floor bathroom. I neglected to take a before picture of the kitchen so this time while he was doing the entry way I made sure to take pics. Here is our little journey into better looking floors:


Here's the after of the kitchen:
And last but not least, the little helper:

9 Months

Our little baby turned 9 months old yesterday! She is getting so big! Or not so big because I took her to her 9 mo. appt. today and she only weighs 15 lbs 8oz and the pediatrition told me to start adding olive oil to her baby food to fatten her up. SICK. Other than that all is well and she is healthy and happy and active. Overly active in my opionion ;) She just had to get one shot today and was only mildly ticked compared to our last visits. New things the little rascal is up to this month:
-Standing and pulling herself up to any and everything that she can possibly reach. (she even goes one handed and her newest trick is bringing toys with her while she climbs)
-Walking holding on to whatever she's pulled herself up to
-Crawling like a real girl. No more of that amateur scooting stuff for her anymore. I guess she got bored of it after 5 months.
-Two new teeth, totalling 6 now! She got the ones on either side of her top front teeth. (and is still grinding those babies as faithfully as last month) On a side note we had a bit of a biting incident a couple of weeks back which was very painful and took 3 full days to heal. Lets just say I won't be trying to get her to laugh while nursing ever again.
-She had her first experience with grass a few days ago after a Sunday walk. She did not know what to think about it and kept lifting her foot off the ground and trying to re place it somewhere else. haha
-She can actually get food into her mouth now when she picks it up instead of losing it in her hand.
-She also loves slapping and hitting things and just the other day was hitting Eric on the head with the little suction thing they give you at the hospital and thought it was hilarious. Sadly I missed it.
Some new pictures and a video which pretty much sums up all of her tricks: When my mom was here visiting she bought Sierra a toy for 9 mos. and up. Sierra didn't want anything to do with it. Yesterday on the exact day she turns 9 mos. she starts playing with it! So funny. (ok, so i realize it's not that interesting to most people but my mom will like it lol)

And the video of everything combined (crawling, pulling up, walking, grinding teeth, slapping)
