Sleeping in her high chair

So Everly has this thing where she often falls asleep in her high chair. I guess we picked out a really comfortable one because sometimes she just passes out in it! She has done it on several occasions both at my house and at my sister's. I am actually able to type this right now because she is sleeping in her high chair! Often we are in the middle of feeding her and she just passes out. It is really kind of funny. We took a video of her doing it the other night and she would just not wake up! I guess she gets really tired sometimes! I wonder if this is something that all babies do or if this is just one of Everly's quirks!

Kitty Love Friday

My beagle Roi has been sleeping under this table lately so I thought I would be nice and stick a dog bed under there for him. He hasn't gone under there since but someone else likes it. Seriously, he only wants what is not his. If I bought him a kitty bed, he wouldn't touch it! Happy Friday!

Happy Mother's Day

Today is my first ever Mother's Day! Everly was fantastic and let me sleep in until I woke up naturally. That is probably the best present ever! Then Justin got me some Starbucks and a new iPhone case that I have been wanting! Tonight we are having Omaha Steaks at my sister's and I can't wait to give my mom her present! This is her first Mother's Day as a Grandma so it is extra special for her too! Also want to say a special Happy Mother's Day to my sister Kim and cousin Sara who are also celebrating their first mother's days!

Kitty Love Friday

Most cats actually don't like water. Oscar on the other hand is very curious about it. He often goes into our walk in shower after we are done and licks up any water that is on the ground. He will also stand outside and bang his paw on the sliding glass door to the shower while we are in there. So, it is no surprise that he is equally as curious in Everly's bath time! 

Happy Friday!

Last weekend I want to Las Vegas with my sister and my women's soccer team for a tournament. This was my first girls trip to Vegas and it was so much fun! We are already talking about scheduling our next trip for my sister's bachelorette party! We got in on Friday night and checked into our hotel which was about 30 minutes from the strip because it was closer to the fields. Our hotel had a free shuttle to the strip so we took advantage of that. On Friday night we started out at the Piano Bar at New York New York, moved on to Coyote Ugly for two-for-one drinks and some dancing on the bar (not by me) and then we finished the night following a gentleman named Kenneth to the super cool balcony at the Foundation Room at the top of the Mandalay Bay. It was a super fun night! The next morning we had two soccer games and we tied both, 1-1. On Saturday night we went to the strip again but it was much more mellow. We stopped by the M&M store and visited the newer City Center and Cosmopolitan. The Cosmopolitan has this magical chandelier bar in it and I want to live there. It is beautiful and both the City Center and Cosmopolitan smell fantastic inside. We ended the night with some frosting shots at the Monte Carlo! On Sunday we had two more games. We won the first 3-0 and tied the second 0-0. We did not have the best record in our bracket so we did not move on but we were happy we remained undefeated for our first time in the tournament. All in all it was a super fun weekend! I love my soccer girls!

7 Month Update

Yesterday Everly turned 7 months old! This month has been awesome. She has developed and grown so much. She moved from size 2 to size 3 diapers, which is nice because now her and Cameron are the same size! She still fits in some 6 month clothes and some 9 months. She is sitting up really well on her own and is starting to try to crawl but is not quite there yet. Everly is eating all kinds of fruits and vegetables now but definitely prefers banana. Sometimes I have to put a little in with her veggies to get her to eat them! Her first tooth started to break through her gums last week! Teething has not been too bad yet, but she has been having trouble sleeping in her own crib. I guess she likes having us next to her because she sleeps great in the middle of our bed! She still loves swim class and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Today we are taking her to the pool in our community for the first time and we can't wait! Hopefully next month we will be talking about how much she is crawling!!!

Pat Tillman Run

Last month I ran in the Annual Pat Tillman Run for my fourth time. It is a really cool run if you have never done it before. It actually sells out because it gets so packed. It was ridiculously hot out that day and it was my worst race time ever, but it was still fun and I am glad we did it. My sister's watched Everly and Cameron while my brother in law and I ran. The heat apparently didn't bother him because he finished the 4.2 mile run in like 35 minutes. Here are a few pics from the run...

How ridiculous it was that day!

Cute Overload

Justin couldn't run because of work so he got to hang out with Evie for a little!

Before the run with my sister in law Carly and good friend Vicki! 

The run was at ASU so Evie had to represent. 

That girl!
My sister got a pic of my finishing. I am in front of the girl in the white tank top in the middle of the pic! Thanks Krys!

The sign Cameron and Everly made!
