My Little Fairy Princess


I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Yesterday, Caylee turned 18month (on the 30th)-writing this at midnight (zzzzz)! Wow, time does fly fast. Caylee was a fairy princess for Halloween. We went to my mother-in-law's church trunk or treat and Caylee scored tons of candy- a.k.a. candy for daddy....=) Caylee has been a handful these days, but definitely a joy to have around. She is such a blessing to have and we love her SO much! I took some pictures of her yesterday (at the Pumpkin Patch) and tonight so that you guys can see how much she has grown.




I hope I still have some readers around.... I know it's long due, but there will be pictures of our new house and what we have been up to soon! So come back, I promise there will be more pictures;)

Buena Vista Lake

This year's summer has been fun for our family. Since we've moved back to Bakersfield from L.A., we have been getting in contact with our old friends, taking an advantage of using my in-law's swimming pool and going out to the lake! Here are some pictures of our summer days thus far:

Caylee and I on a boat ( I know, you can't tell)-but for real!;)

Us at a picnic table in Buena Vista Lake. I get a laugh at Caylee's hair here.... She looks like Einstein's baby=)
If you can tell, Caylee went for a tubing ride, assisted by Brad. She was giggling the whole ride; she had a blast!
She had so much fun that she was exhausted by the time she came back into the boat (she was falling asleep).

I didn't even get in the water because I started getting sick. I stayed on the boat the whole time. I was the photographer that day=) Thanks to the Fausett's family for letting us come along on a boat ride;)

Caylee & Alexis

Alexis, 2yrs. 3months Caylee, 16 months

Alexis is Caylee's cousin. They get along pretty well. They give each other "loves"-hugs and kisses and loves to play all day long, if they can. Just a few weeks ago, I saw them like this....

and like thisThey are so sweet to each other (for the most part) and it's nice to see them like this. But.... I wonder how long this is going to last;)

New Brighton

This year, we started a new tradition with our "Roseville" friends and have an annual get together. This year, we camped out in New Brighton State Beach located in Capitola. We were there from Monday-Wednesday. There were six families that ended up going (Ashby's, Wiest's, Perryman's, Morgan's, Mortimer's, and us-Lamb's). The camp site was awesome, even though it was a bit chilly in the middle of the night. Even though we had the beach right there, we didn't even make it on the shore until couple of hours before we went back home. We had so much fun catching up on old times and seeing what's new in their lives. We had great company, entertaintment, and food. Thanks to Tiffani for all her food preperation; everything was soooo good!

3 years had passed by since we moved away and hadn't seeing some of our friends from Roseville so it was nice seeing their "new" babies for the first time. They were all so adorable and I wanted to take them all home with me=)

... was awesomely beautiful!

It's ours!

For about 5 months now, we have seen our home built from ground up. We almost can't believe it, but our escrow closed and we finally got the keys to our new house yesterday! We are thrilled and excited to move in. It'll probably take us about 3 weeks before we move in because we are getting some work done. We are going to put tile on the floor(down stairs and in all 3 bathrooms), putting granite in the kitchen and bathroom counters, and putting shutter blinds in. Lots of work to be done, but can't wait to officially move in!

Excersaucer Time!


The last time I can remember Caylee being in the excersaucer was around 6 months (at the latest), than she no longer wanted to be in there anymore. Than, recently around couple of weeks ago (at 13 months old), she managed to climb into the excersaucer all by herself. I couldn't catch her smile when she was smiling, but she thought that it was the funniest thing. I miss her being so tiny. They grow up too stinkin' fast!

I LOVE Swimming!


Lately, Bakersfield weather has been HOT!!! We cool ourselves by going swimming at my in-law's house. It's nice to go swimming whenever we want. Last year, when Caylee was around 3 months old, we tried letting her swim, but she HATED it. This year is a little bit different, now that she is a little older and more aware. She actually smiles and has a good time!

Surgery Time (Eventually)

Since I had Caylee, my belly button has not gone all the way down. I always wondered if my uterus was not down to its normal size. So today, I went to my new OB/GYN and found out that I have a Hernia=(

What is Hernia? Well, this is what it said online:
A hernia occurs when an organ or tissue squeezes through a hole or a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia.

How can you get Umbilical hernia?
Anything that causes an increase in pressure in the abdomen can then cause a hernia, including obesity, Having kids or those who had children, lifting heavy objects, diarrhea or constipation, or persistent coughing or sneezing.

My OB/GYN told me that it will get worse as I have more children (yikes)! I am not looking forward to having this surgery, yet surgery alone. I'm scared. I have no clue what goes on. Anyone had a Hernia? Mine doesn't hurt, but was told that it will get painful as it gets worse. Any thoughts anyone? Any suggestions/comments will be grately apprecaited=)

Just A Few Sips

Our family loves Sonic! When we moved back in Bakersfield, we were thrilled to see Sonic (especially Brad). Couple of weeks ago, we were all at my in-law's house and and found some Sonic cups laying around. Caylee found one, grabbed it and sipped away (I think there was only water in it....)
Thinking about it....
Goes for it....

Sipped away!

Makeover



Today, I got my haircut! I have been thinking of having my hair cut for the last 6 months or so, so today, I finally got around to doing it. Thanks to Julie who did a great job! What do you think? My head definately feels lighter. I got it cut about 5 inches off.

It's coming along!


We got the news today that our house will be done by the end of this month for sure! We are very excited to say the least. We were fortunate to also get our house price lowered. How? Well, almost 4 months ago we had the company give us a written statement saying that if their base prices of their homes ever go lower than what we agreed for, they would review and change ours 30 days prior to close of our escrow. Well, sure enough, the housing prices has gone done since than, so we went in today and demanded what they promised us with.

We have an appointment to walk through the house on the 25th of this month (June). If all goes well, we are planning on ripping out the carpet downstairs and in the bathrooms (to put tile in) and putting granite in in the kitchen and bathroom counters. Lots of work to do before we move in.... Wish us luck!

She's Walking!

Once again, I have neglected this blog. I need to update it more often and I'm gong to try my best. Every time I think of blogging, I find something else that needs to be done or I get lazy uploading the pictures from my camera. Anyways, I have updated once again. I have blogged a lot, so keep scrolling down.

For those of you who haven't seen Caylee walk yet, I have video taped her when she first started really walking. It's so neat to see the changes in her. She started taking some steps about a month before her first b-day and on Cinco De Mayo, she started really walking. Enjoy the video clip! I forgot to rotate it up right-sorry!

She learned to open kitchen cabinets about 2 months ago, but also learned to crawl into them.

My little booger!

OuCh!

My poor baby had to get a 1 yr check up with the doctors. She had to get 4 shots this time because she missed one of the Hep. shot last time we were there. She weighed only 18lbs 7oz and 28 1/2 inches long. She is still in the 50th percentile.
Trying to comfort her before her shots=(
Wow, they needles were LOoong!

Randomness=)

Here are some pictures I took while Caylee and I were out and about:

First time in the shopping cart at Sam's

Brad, Caylee and I was at Costco the other day and found this Dr. Pepper throne...


My friend, Yoselin and I went to Olive Garden last week and had lunch together. Thanks for having lunch with us, it was a lot of fun!
