Momentous Occasion...

Today was the official day that Stella began sleep in her crib. She has been sleeping either in her carseat or her swing because it helps her with her stuffy nose. But I finally organized her room and her crib is no longer a storage area for her clothes lol. She absolutely loves her mobile and gets real excited when I play it for her. She's a pretty smart baby.

Chilly winter

Well it's definately been getting colder outside. But to make things worse is the fact that our heater broke. It hasn't been working for 3 or so days now....Not fun. So I've been bundling Stella up really nice, so she won't get sick. Here's a fun little pic of her sleeping on our bed with 2 layers of blankets.

Mama's Best Gift

I didn't take many pictures on Christmas day, but we filmed alot on our new camera. That thing is so nice and handy. We captured moments that we wouldn't have captured on a still photo. Here are some cute pictures of our tree and little Stella in her christmas onsie. If I figure out how to shorten video maybe I'll try and post some of it later.

Stella has been cooing for the past couple of weeks now. I'm not sure if she's early or right on time compared to all other babies, but I guess every baby is different. She sounds sooo cute! But every time I try to capture it on video, she stops. I don't know what it is but I think she's too smart for her own good haha. I finally caught a mini moment of it on my camera phone. It's only a few seconds long, hopefully the quality is alright. :0)

I have been wanting to go to Zoolights for the last 3yrs and I finally went! And best of all I got to share this momentous occasion with my sweet family. I received the Zoolights tickets as a an early christmas present from my sister-in-law Jessica. I was sooo excited! It was a pretty chilly night and I was worried that Stella would be fussy, but she was doing so good. Curtis picked her up after only being there 10min. We made our way through and it was so nice to see all sorts of animal light designs. We got to a place where there were trees that were all lit up from trunk to top. These were no ordinary decorated trees, they moved in motion to a piece of music. It was so cool! I believe the piece of music was from the Nutcracker, but it was a rock kind of version. Stella was mesmorized by it. She just tracked the trees and looked in aww. :0) It was so cute to see her.

Stella got her ears pierced!

Well I was debating for some time about whether or not to get Stella's ears pierced. It's kind of a tradition that my family has. My mom ears pierced my ears, as well as my two sisters, when we were just babies. So I finally decided that I'm going to continue with the tradition. My mom came over with her supplies and got down to business. I was in the other room while my mom did the actual poking. I was expecting loud crying from Stella, but all I heard was a small yelp and that was it. My mom called me in and Stella looked adorable. She was all drowsy lol. Anyway I'm glad I followed through with the tradition. Before she got them pierced Later that night after her bath

Baby Blessing

Today was the big day for Stella, she got blessed. She looked adorable in her little blessing dress. I had bought it about 2-3 weeks early and was worried she wouldn't fit in it by the time it was her blessing day lol. She has been growing so fast it seems. I'm loving every minute of it though. My friends Jereld Brewer and Derric Crandell attended the blessing and participated in the circle, which I thought was pretty cool. And what was even more cool was the fact that my sister Trisha attended. I was so happy to see her there.
