Boat Ride

This weekend we went to our lake house and took out the boat. Stella got to swim in the lake on Saturday and Sunday. She went for her first boat ride on Sunday and had a great time. She liked watching Uncle Kyle ski and her daddy ride the jet ski. Uncle Kyle put her to sleep on the boat and she took a little nap. It was a great weekend to enjoy the lake and some family.

Naughty Little Girl

Thursday afternoon I knew the house had gotten way to quite, I went looking for Ms. Stella and found one very naughty little girl. She had taken her dress down, I guess she was at least trying to keep it clean, and was splashing away in the toilet water! Some were along the way she lost a shoe but at least she was having a good time.

A few new things!

We have a few new things going on around here, These feet were made for walking and that is just what they are doing!
This hair is growing and can now hold a bow! (the headbands still look better but we just wanted everyone to know that there is enough hair to put a bow in!)
This is the look that Stella has on her face when she is walking, she must be thinking really hard about what she is doing.

Here I come mom, I'm gonna get you!

Swim Ranch

This week Stella and I have been going to swim lessons at the Swim Ranch. It is amazing to see how much she can already do just this week.
Swimming to Mrs. Virginia.

Working on our kicking skills.

Stella was wondering why Gabe got the pink kick board

Waiting on class to start.

Gigi's oven

Gigi was cleaning her oven and Stella was being a big helper!


Stella has a new pair of sunglasses. They never go on her face but are still pretty cool.

Busy Bees!

OK, I am sorry that I have not posted in a while but I hate doing a post with out pictures and I really have not taken any photos lately. I know there are those of you out there that are calling me a liar but I am telling you the truth.
We have been super busy, Stella has started walking which is adding a whole new amount of craziness to our days! She had taken one or two steps around the house but last Thursday we were at the mall with Uncle K and Gigi and she took off walking across the store! I thought it was such a fabulous location for her to start walking, Jason groaned and said a prayer for his wallet!
This week we are taking swimming lessons at the swim ranch and Stella is doing a great job! She can get in and out of the pool on her own and is really good a floating on her back. Jason is suppose to go with me Thursday or Friday to take some photos to share with everyone.
Hope everyone is doing great!

Payton comes to Play

Miss P came over tonight to play with Stella while her parents went out for an evening of fun. It is always fun to watch Stella and Payton play with one another. I am glad to know that my little girl is going to have such an amazing friend to grow up and experience life. Payton was not having anything to do with Jason at first, Stella was not into someone else having her mom, meaning that I had two little girls attached to me!
We took the girls for a walk around the block. They had a lot of fun waving at all the people outside and were a big hit with their pretty bows and smiles.
**Yes ladies, he is a "sure thing" but he is my sure thing, I know that you are all jealous of me and those sweet socks he is sporting!
Stella and Payton had a picnic diner in the living room watching some cartoons.

Cooking with Daddy

Stella had a great time today helping daddy fix our lunch.

**Please note Jason's sweet socks, they are mine that I wear in the winter with boots for some reason he wore them today looking like such a stud muffin.


This week Stella had Spaghetti for the first time. Stella was loving her some spaghetti and kept wanting more and more.
