worst day ever

So I think yesterday was one of the worst days I have had in along time. So I will give you a play by play.

So I had some errands I wanted to do before Macy went down for her nap so I went to go start the truck. The truck is parked in the back and we don't have steps on the back door because we took them off so that the builders could paint under them and then someone(me) ran into them with travis truck and broke them...thats another story. So anyways I went to step down and it was sheer ice and I fell and hit my head.

Then once we got back and Macy was down for her nap I was loading some cardboard boxes into the back of the truck once that was down I went and moved the truck to the front of the house so that I didnt have to risk falling down with Macy when I went out later...well as I shut the door I didn't have my leg far enough back and hit my knee...I thought I had broke my knee cap it hurt soo bad!!

So a little later on after Macy had her second nap I needed to go and return a duvet cover I had bought that didn't fit. The store was down by chinook mall which is about 20 min away. So on the way back Macy was screaming bloody murder and she would start like chocking and it scared me so I stopped about 6 times and tried to calm her down each time but it didn't last long...I think her top teeth are coming through because she has been super cranky lately.

So once we finally get home I am trying to give her her food and she will not sit in her high chair so I had to feed her on my lap. So once that was done I try and put her in her exersaucer while I make some cookies for Travis and the guys hes working with this week...and she will not stop finally I get out her bumbo(which she hates) and gave her my measuring cups and she played with them the whole time I made cookies..who would of known that those would work, anyways so I keep my cookie sheets in the drawer under the stove and that drawer is so tricky if you don't pull it out just right it will come off the tracks so needless to say I didn't do that so I was trying to fight with it to get it back in and wasn't watching were I was grabbing it and sliced 3 of my fingers on the drawer.

So that was my day! But it did end good my cousin Jenna had her little boy!!!

Here is a funny video of Macy. My mom was trying to get her to laugh but all she would do was scream back at her.

Well things have been pretty crazy here. Since getting back from Alabama I feel like I haven't had time to slow down. So I will try and think of all the things we have done.

First things first Macy was 6 months old on the 13th of September and she was just about 15 pounds and I think 25.5 inches long. I had to go do the shots by myself this time because I booked so late they didn't have anything at night until the end of October, but lukily for me they changed how many shots they get at the 6 month check up so she only had to get one and she was such a brave little girl.

Travis has started his 3 year apprentiship and I thought it would be soo nice having him home earlier and what not but he can't really study with the baby here, he gets to distracted so he stays and the school. And not only that he is to lazy to take the bus over to the c-train because that means he has to get up earlier and he is not a morning person so I drive him over there every morning and pick him up..its a good thing I love him so much!! He is almost done he only has to be there for 8 weeks and he is on his 6th.

So a couple sundays ago a lady in our ward came up to me and asked for a favour....she wanted us to watch her kids...she has 7!! for 4 days while they went on a little siblings reunion with her husbands me not being a person to say no I say ya sure(she is paying us so that kinda made it seem ok...and i grew up with kids always in our house since my mom did daycare so i was kinda used to it)....and then she says also if you would want to watch just the 5 of them again for 10 days!!! and again not being able to say no i said yes!! So that is what we have been up to it has been a crazy time one we wont forget...when we were at church last week with them a couple other people noticed we had them and asked if we could go to there place long as im getting money ill do it..haha....Trav on the other hand might divorce me if I say yes again to someone...haha jks. There grandparents are here for the weekend so we get a little break but have to be back monday morning bright and early.

So that pretty much sums it up getting excited to be done on friday and then have a long weekend...and some turkey!!!

my favorite dress!!

she loves being in the tub

So I came to Alabama with my mom and Brett and Kate to surprise my grandparents on there mission, and I think daddy is missing us(well maybe just macy) so im putting some pictures on to show him what we have been up to. I will do more when I get back home.

Its so hot down her we are letting her take a sip of a cold pepsi.
Me and Kate painted Macy's toenais while she was sleeping, then I did mine so we matched.
Just relaxing with mommy
Her first plane ride.

4 Months Old....yesterday.

So I know its been awhile since I posted it has been a crazy couple of weeks. So there are going to be lots of pictures. Warning some of them are not good focus because some are taken on my iphone and its just hard to get a good picture when shes moving so much. I had to start supplementing her with formula because she just isn't gaining weight like she should be, she is now almost 10 pounds!! She is really long for her age too 23 1/2 inches. So she might just be long and lean like her daddy!heres a picture to show how long she is. she hates being on her tummy, but is getting better.
This one is so funny. I think I surprised her from my noises trying to make her laugh.
So I am up stairs putting luandry away, and I hear Travis say "Macy what happened to your pants" this is what she looks like when I come down. I love the funny things he does with her!

Love this outfit, still to cold to wear it without the undershirt.
I can always to get her to smile now and its so fun. I got her to laugh on sunday and Trav recorded it with his phone so im not sure how to get it on here but it was so CUTE!!!
Love the way she fell asleep

Oh ya and Macy was 3 months old yesterday!! I'm a little late on getting her shots done because we have been so busy so they are booked for Wednesday so wish me luck!
So last week there was one nice day before all the rainy ones, so we went for a walk, and since the area that we live in is just getting developed, Chaparral is right across the street so we went and walked around there, and in Chaparral there is a lake but only people that live in chaparral are allowed access the lake...which is a total bummer because it looks so nice in there. I came home and told Trav we were moving and buying a house in Chaparral so that I could go to the lake whenever I wanted....he just laughed. You are allowed to go with someone that does have a card though so that is a bonus! But as I was walking around it there is this huge gate so that no one can enter unless through the main entrance, it made me feel like this little kid sitting outside an ice cream shop just hoping his mom would buy him a treat...haha. One day I will go in there!
Trav has been working alot lately which is good because we thought that when his company was bought out that they would be laying people off and Trav was one of the last employees hired, so we were a little I guess I can't complain too much about him being gone he still has a job and is able to provide for our family. But since he is gone so much as soon as he gets home he wants to play with Macy, and it doesn't matter if she is sleeping or not he will wake her up. The other day Trav got home around 2:30 a.m. and then had to be up a 6:30 to get ready to go to work again and I had just finished feeding Macy around 6, so by the time he had showered and got dressed she was back asleep but he wanted to see her so he picks her up and tries waking her...and she starts screaming he looks and me and says SORRY! puts her on the bed and leaves! It took me a good 30 min to calm her down. It wouldn't of been such a big deal but she didn't good at all that night so I was so tired.
And the last 2 weeks I got to watch this cute boy!!! It was fun but definately made me realize that I do not want 2 kids that close in age.

I don't know why they have to make the hoods so big!
In her cute dress from Grandma Quinton. She cried everytime I tried to take out her soother.
