Half a year old

Caylee turned 6 months today! Time definately flies- I can't believe it! She has mastered rolling around and she is trying to learn how to crawl. She kind of crawls back words, but I'm pretty sure it won't take long before she figures how to crawl forward. She is happy and sleeps very well. Though, she is starting to wake up 1-2 hours earlier than normal. She might be teething because she is drooling and messing with her lower lip a lot. I can't really tell because she hasn't been really fussy. What are the signs? Am I suppose to give her something when she is teething? She will be visiting the Pediatrician in 2 weeks. I can't wait to find out how much she weigh. She seems to have gained a few pounds from the last doctor's visit. I haven't started her on solids yet, but I think I might do so pretty soon. I don't know if this sounds silly but I'm kind of nervous. Nervous about what? I am not really sure, but I just feel that way.

Botanical Garden

I'm always blogging about things that had happened couple of days ago or last week, and I'm so bad about posting it right away. I will try to blog more often so that I can talk about things that happened just recently. I always say to myself that I would do it later and later ends up being 1 week+! I guess I'm not a true blogger like some of you are...;)

Well, I wanted to post this last Thursday about when I went to the Huntington Library with my friend, Melanie. Melanie and I became good friends when I used to work for Olive Garden. She and I had our babies 3 weeks apart! She is one of the manager at OG. She and I visited the Botanical Garden in Huntington Library. It was so pretty!

On Friday this week, Brad, Caylee and I took a trip with really good friends of ours from church (Carson's) to Bakersfield to go to the Banducci's Pumpkin Patch. We went through a maze and enjoyed each other's company as we got lost=) We also had fun picking out different shapes of pumkins. Brad went to the same high school with the twins that own the pumkin patch, so we were able to get as many pumkins as we wanted. It has been our little family's tradition. It was Caylee's first Halloween and I think she enjoyed it.

Back when I was in school, I took floristry classes and I learned how to make bouquets, bootneers( I don't know how to spell it...), and different sorts of arrangements. Well, my classes paid off because my cousin is getting married tomorrow and she needed a bouquet made, along with his fiance's bootneer. I was a little nervous because it has been about 8 years since I last made one, but I think I worked it out;) What do you think?
Need a bouquet anyone?

Last Friday, Brad, Caylee and I went to the L.A. Zoo. We had so much fun looking at different animals. Brad tried getting Caylee to recognize the Lambs, but I don't think she really knew what they were...

It was quite a sunny day

This elephant was playing with a tire. After playing, he took #2 and started eating it( yuck!)

Toward the end of our zoo trip, we saw...
and I told Brad that I wanted one=) I think the baby gorillas are so dang cute!

I think the next trip is going to have to be the Wild Animal Park in San Diego. They have a really good bird show.

Happy Caylee

Caylee turned 5 months old yesterday! She is trying and learning different tricks everyday and becoming more aware of her surroundings. Here are "5" things she is good at doing:

1. Sits on her own with support

2. Smile and recognize mom and dad

3. Sleeps through the night (11-13 hours)

4. Turns and roll all over

5. Her legs are strong! She is able to stand with help

Our Ward has a lot of elderly people so we only have Kiley, Blake and another girl, Bella. So there is only 4 kids in our ward total! Can you believe it? Caylee is the youngest one.
