A Little Sugar

Alli and I made some home made Valentine's sugar cookies today while Haven napped. She has been bugging me all week to make them, so today was her lucky day! Her favorite part by far is putting on the "sparkles," aka sprinkles. Haven woke up to have a sweet little snack- lucky girl!
I love my two sweet girls.

We have a little camera that always seems to disappear. I finally found it in the toy box, immediately turned it on knowing there would probably be stuff on it, and sure enough there was! This is a small sample of what I found- she told me these are her kids, even the bunny ha ha. She cracks me up.

Good Times

We met up with some of our cousins at The Living Planet Aquarium. We haven't been since they got the otters and penguins! We went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse, Josh and Haven went swimming and Alli & I went to the Jazz game. We had a super fun weekend! 

 Alli had to get a picture with the real live Mermaid

Alli and I went to the Jazz game Saturday night and had so much fun! She ate almost an entire bag of cotton candy, got on the jumbo-tron and got a free t shirt thrown at her! Thanks Dad for the seats!

We went to the little play place during the 3rd quarter where she instantly made several boyfriends

Also, Josh got to meet Eva Shockey at the SHOT (Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade) Show in Las Vegas last week. He was pretty stoked about it- he is a big fan and has a huge crush on her! Glad he got a moment of glory with Eva =)

Blah Blah Blah...

January is my least favorite month, it's so LAME! We are so over this cold weather, it needs to get outta here NOW! Anyway, we've mostly just been hanging out indoors cause that's pretty much all we can do lately. 

We put our label maker to good use and made some labels for the toy organizer. Alli loved helping me find the letters we needed

This little gal has been loving Sesame Street..and I mean seriously look at those luscious little buns. Love em!

I just got some more pics of Alli a couple weeks ago from her photo shoot she did awhile back.. Loving this one.

I've been watching numerous shows and getting my weekly dose of reality TV.

Oh and I am now on Instagram! You can follow me if you so desire at ashleysuth13. Yep, I know I'm moving up in the world. I have a blog, facebook, pinterest, & insta. I'm pretty much a social media guru! ;) I'm just missing Twitter, but don't plan on using that any time soon =)

Our 1 Year Old

It's hard to believe that 12 months have gone since the time our sweet baby girl with the full head of dark hair was born. I love the first year and love watching and experiencing each precious stage with them. I now have a beautiful active 1 year old that is eager to learn more and grow up right before my eyes. I love her so so much, I'm incredibly blessed.

Haven turned 1 year old on December 29th!
She weighs about 19 lbs (32nd percentile) and is 29 inches long (42nd percentile)
Started drinking whole milk, she's not sure about it yet
Loves books
Very easy going and happy baby!
Waves and says bye bye
Getting close to walking
Great sleeper still
Very eager and curious
Smart - very quick learner
Usually takes just 1 good nap now
She lets you know if she doesn't want you to take something away
Is getting busier and busier with each passing day =)
Still has her one of a kind giggle, which I need to record asap
Squishes the juice out of oranges and chucks the rest on the ground
Loves baths
Loves to drink water
Loves all crackers & pretzels

Haven's first year

I'm so glad I bought these monthly stickers! They pretty much forced me to document Haven's growth and progress throughout her first year of life. It will be fun to look back on these and I'm glad I have them for forever! It's crazy how fast kids change and grow, especially those first few years.

The BEST stain remover

Alli left half of a red crayon in one of her pocket, which ended up staining a whole load of laundry that I had washed AND dried. I had little spots of red crayon everywhere. It was a nightmare. So i googled how to get crayon out of clothes and i saw this video on you tube about a lady that had the exact same problem. 
Anyway, this stuff is AMAZING!! It got ALL the crayon out. There was a few shirts I had to do it twice on, but after that the crayon was completely gone. I just followed the ladies directions in the video and it worked like a charm! I highly recommend getting it, especially if you have kids cause we all know how much kids stain things....and no this is not like a product review or sponsored review or anything like that, it's just me sharing how amazing this product is, and obviously how excited I got over it seeing how I'm blogging about it, but whatev. Go get will change your life! ;)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! On New Years day, Alli and I went to Color Me Mine together. It's one of her favorite places ever. She decided to paint a Unicorn this time which she named "Jayla." We will get to see Jayla hot, fresh and shiny out of the ceramic oven later this week. She can hardly wait!

Speaking of the new year, these are a few of my resolutions for 2013...

*Always know where my phone and answer it always. Sounds so easy but I struggle with this one majorly ;)
* Make time to work out more, I was super lazy in 2012! 
* Be more kind and patient
* Make more use of time
* Step out of my comfort zone more

Here's to a fresh start! Happy 2013!
