She ate it!


I know it doesn't look like it, but she finally started to eat her cereal from a spoon! :) Before when we fed her cereal she would spit it out and now she loves it. It's all over her face because she moves a lot and when you hold the spoon up to her mouth she gets it everywhere! At least she gets 1/4 of the food in her mouth! :) Yay Alexa!

Appetizer and Dessert!

We are going to BBQ dinner with our neighbors tonight and I made the dessert! Matthew insisted that I make the pudding dessert and so I did. Look how nice it turned out! :)

Tomorrow night we are going to BBQ Carne Asada with 2 couples that are also our neighbors and so I made some salsa! This is just our own portion of it. :) I'm also making a pudding dessert for tomorrow night! :)

I love that this is part of my job as a part-time stay at home Mom! I love cooking! :) I'm also going to make Matthew homemade Chocolate chip cookies today! It's a surprise! :)

3 year Wedding Anniversary!

Today is our 3 year wedding Anniversary! We decided not get each other gifts this year because we bought new couches for ourselves. We sold our other ones on Ebay and got 80 bucks for them haha. We didn't care what we got. We just wanted them gone! Our apartment actually looks like a home now! Anyways, I can't believe it's been almost 8 years that we have been together and married for 3 today. Time has really flown by quick. I still remember the day he asked me out. It was the 4th of July and we were at Grandma & Grandpa Johnson's house. He took me out in the front by the Camry and pulled out a sheet of paper.
A kiss on the lips is what started it all!!
 We've been married for 3 years and I'm more in love than the day I married him.

It's so awesome that we have a 4 month old daughter. We love her like crazy! Thank goodness my face isn't swollen like that anymore. Pregnancy sure does a number on the body! It's worth it though!

We have come a long way. I was only 16 and he was only 18 when we got together. It was really rocky at first, but we grew together as one. We love spending time together! We like the same things and we are BEST FRIENDS!
For us, communication is everything and I think that is what's keeping us together. I'm so happy with our life right now and the only other way I could imagine it being different is by expanding our family.
When we started dating I saved everything from concerts we went to, movies tickets, and all the notes we wrote each other. I even printed emails that I thought I would like to read in the future. I read a lot of that stuff today and it made me remember the past 8 years. There were so many things I forgot we did and said. We were crazy for each other and I'm that much and more crazy about him today! I'd be lost without him and our precious daughter he gave me. 
Happy 3 Year Wedding Anniversary!
I love you!

Alexa's First Spoon Fed Meal

Alexa doesn't appear to be enjoying her first spoon fed meal. Granted, it's rice cereal and water mixed together, so I'm not sure how good it actually is... It sure is fun watching a good mom like Ashley feeding her baby from a spoon. We just found out today that within the next few month's Alexa will be eating MEATS, yeah, that's right, MEATS!

Alexa's First Sip of Water

video

We took Alexa in for her 4 month check-up and she weighs 17 lbs 2 oz and she is 24 inches tall! She also got her shots today, but she did very well! She only cried for a minute or two. After her appointment, Matthew and I had some errands to run so we went to Target to get more formula and since the doctor said she can start drinking water, we bought her a sippy cup. This was her first time drinking water and holding her cup by herself!!! I'm so proud of her!

Matthew's 26th Birthday

The day before Matthew's Birthday we bought some Carne Asada and Chicken Asada to BBQ for his B-day lunch. It was so good! Next time we go, I will take a picture of the place we got the food because its the kind of place that looks like you would want to have a man with you when you go haha.
We first started off our day by going to visit Grandma & Grandpa Fairbanks!


Then we went to Denny's so Matthew could have his Strawberry Waffles with a side of hash browns that he still has yet to perfect.

We came home with our full belly's and relaxed on our new comfy couches. They are the best couches ever!
After a few hours we went to the pool and BBQ'd our lunch. It was a delightful day!
Happy Birthday my love!
