Hazelbaby-8 months

As I was digging out Hazel's monthly onesie stickers, I noticed I only have FOUR left. insane. Anywho-this month Hazel has moved into the big bath with Lincoln. As long as she has a bath toy she loves it. It feels like she has been teething for an entire month, I was convinced all her teeth were coming in at once. I just knew I would get her up one morning and she would be smiling at me with an entire mouth full of teeth (kind of creepy if you picture it in your head!) But, only TWO little boogers on the bottom are poking through. Right now her favorite thing to do is dance parties. She LOVES for us to hold her and jam out to some tunes. I absolutely love that she plays with her hair when I'm nursing her. She twirls it until she falls asleep. On her effected side (sprengels deformity) she has a limited range of motion with her arm, so she can't reach her hair and plays with her eyelashes instead. :)

Ha- just noticed Lincoln in the background. Not quite sure of his choice of seating. Also- pretty sure he is in his underwear in almost every picture.

She will sit and play Lincoln's piano all day long. Perhaps she has inherited Nate's music gene. Lord knows its not from me. I have been trying to learn Chopsticks for years. It's so darn hard.  photo IMG_9015_zps3c6ca9af.jpg
ps. This is her outfit from her 3 month pictures. It's size 0-3months. She is quite the nugget.

So glad I bought monthly onesie stickers. She has ripped every single one off since 5 months.

valentine gifts

  I'm so excited about the kids Valentine gifts this year! Is that weird? I really didn't want to get candy for them because I'm the one that ends up eating it. ALL of it. I have no self control. Anyway, I wanted to go with a love theme and found these adorable counting books called Babylit books. So stinkin cute! I got Hazel Pride and Prejudice and Lincoln Romeo and Juliet. I also wanted to get a little something to go along with the books. Lucky me, or I guess Hazel, Babylit also has a matching Mr. Darcy doll! Perfect. I knew Lincoln would not really appreciate a Romeo or Juliet doll, so instead I got him a plush sword. That way he can't hurt Hazel with it. Well, I'm sure he will still find a way. He always finds a way.  Now...what to get the hubs.

Friday night at the movies

We decided to have a little family movie night on Friday . Lincoln is finally starting to  sit and watch movies and I'm loving it! His favorite right now is Monster, Inc. Which is his requested birthday party theme. His favorite character is Randall (the bad guy!) So he calls it his Randall birthday party. He is actually understanding movie plots and it's crazy to see him go through all these emotions throughout the film.  I never realized how much drama is in Disney/Pixar movies.  I decided to go with Finding Nemo.  I thought it was safe. He made it past Coral's death, he made it past Bruce, (the shark) but he finally made us turn it off when Darla came on. Apparently, Lincoln is not a fan of headgear. He was so upset that she was going to get Nemo. He told us he wanted to go to bed and to turn it off. That's a first! I'm really glad I did not turn on Lion King. I remember bawling like a baby when Mufasa died!
 It's so hard choosing movies for two-almost three-year olds. In Monsters, Inc. Randall calls Sully stupid. So, for the past two weeks when Lincoln gets upset he screams, "Mom, your stupid!" Luckily, I'm not that sensitive. Even in public. At the grocery store. When everyone is looking at me.

I decided to drizzle a little chocolate on our popcorn. I'm not a huge fan of popcorn, tastes like crunchy air to me. But, chocolate makes everything better. Except for my thighs and my couch that is covered in chocolate fingerprints. 


Of course I had to make a Nemo themed dinner. Lincoln loved the octopus hotdog.

Hazel Baby, Seven Months

A little late posting, but.. Hazel is seven months! Over the last month she has really grown. She can now sit up by herself, she is getting some bottom teeth, and blowing raspberries. Once she gets started it's hard to get her to stop!  This girl knows what she wants. Her and Lincoln are already fighting over Christmas toys. If he has something she wants, she lets him know it. It's been a bit difficult getting Lincoln to understand that she is just a baby. But, the times he does share with her and bring her toys are so sweet. 

As for an update on her health, we went and visited a Geneticist a couple of weeks ago. They diagnosed her with Klippel-feil sequence. Which apparently can effect a lot of things.  So now we are having to see a Cardiologist, Optometrist, ear doctor (not sure what they are called) Pediatric Gynecologist, along with her Orthopedic surgeon and Urologist appointment.  So, right now we are kinda of just playing a waiting game. 

I can see how some may argue this bow is too big.




She rips her monthly stickers off the second I put one on!
Getting bigger...


Her favorite Christmas toy!
