Life in Motion

Scarlett's been changing so fast that I can hardly keep up!
We've been taking lots of videos around here,
and since I'm sure that everyone loves watching home videos
of my daughter as much as I do, I thought I'd post some of my favorites ;)
 I've already shared this one, but it's by far her biggest accomplishment this month.
I had no idea how much harder it is to have a crawler!
Church this week was exhausting trying to chase her around the classroom!
A close second in new tricks is that she can wave!!  It's pretty adorable.
She went from yesterday making random jerking motions
to today waving constantly at anybody that would pay attention to her.
...This one says it all :)  She could literally do this all day, and oftentimes she does.
Our favorite is when she does it at church and during prayers :)
This one's obviously not new, but I was scrolling through old videos,
and this has to be one of my all-time favorites.
Newborn noises are the sweetest!
And last but not least, it's not Scarlett, but something miraculous happened.
I caught Christopher singing on video!!
He usually catches me in the act and stops right away.
It's short, but I love his voice and this song :)  Love you babe!

8 Months

Happy 8 months little babe!
I keep telling Chris that it still feels like she's 3 months,
it's too weird how fast time flies!
Poor thing's had a cold this week,
so don't mind the snot in the pictures :)
Everything is pretty saturated around here.

As you can see, one of her favorite new tricks
is standing and leaning on things.
She's starting to take steps when we hold onto her hands.
She's not quite crawling, but rolls and scoots all over the place.

She's just getting more of a personality all the time.
She looooves attention and hates being left alone.
Still no teeth, but I love that little gummy smile.
She continues to talk more and more and loooves being loud.

She's being doing really well being left with my mom
when I go to work.
It just about melts my heart, though, when I come home
and she lights up and starts squealing and bouncing.
I think she knows I'm her mama!!

We've actually had some warm days here,
and her favorite things are going on the swings and
watching all of her cousins bounce on the trampoline.

I think Scarlett is going to be some kind of musician.
Whenever music starts playing (especially if it's Chris)
she starts dancing and singing along.  It's pretty adorable.
She loves her bathtime!
I tried to replicate a friend's bath photo cause I thought it was so cute.

Love this doll baby!!

To my Birthday Boy

Today is a wonderful day- Chris's birthday!!
It's one of my favorite holidays cause we get to celebrate
the life of my most favorite man.
I don't want to say it's "unfortunate" cause it's not,
but his birthday always ends up on general conference haha.
So we celebrated his birthday yesterday.

We took Scarlett to the aquarium
(not the best timing during opening week-it was an absolute madhouse).
Then we got ice cream, dropped the bean off with my parents,
and went and saw a movie.
Not my most original of dates, but it's what he wanted :)

I am just the luckiest girl in the world to spend the rest of my 
life with this handsome guy.
He is my best friend and the greatest daddy in the world.

I hope you have a wonderful day, my love!
I love you more than anything!
