Summer FUN!

It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over and I haven't blogged for months. Peach is getting bigger and more animated each day. She is starting to finally get a little hair and she is scooting around on the floor. She is definitely not crawling yet, but she can move in a semi-circle to reach for toys. I am grateful that she is still immobile, it makes my job a lot easier. She just turned 9 months old. It is going by fast, but we are enjoying every minute.

The House

We have been living in our new house for about two months. We didn't own much furniture because we were previously living in a 1100 square foot apartment in Minneapolis. So we have purchased a lot of new furniture to fill up our new house. And we still have a long way to go. As you can see most of our walls are still bare. I am definitely struggling with the decorating. If you have any decorating tips, they would be greatly appreciated!
FAMILY ROOM: We love our new couch and entertainment center. The couch is so comfortable and it reclines. I am having a hard time deciding on a coffee table. I am not sure what shape would fit the best: round vs. square vs. rectangle?? I also have been looking for a large picture to go above the fireplace.
KITCHEN & DINING ROOM: I absolutely love my kitchen!! Eventually I want to get a bigger dining room table and bar stools.
BABY ROOM & BATHROOM: I have lots of work to do in the nursery. I want to get pictures to put up on the shelf and I need to hang up her curtains.

MASTER BEDROOM: We bought new bedroom furniture and bedding. I need to get something to put over the bed, curtains, and bedside lamps.

LIVING ROOM: We bought a new piano and couch. I have orderd two accent chairs in the fabric above, but I am still waiting for them to get delivered. I have been looking for a huge mirror to go above the couch. Any ideas??
GUEST BEDROOM: We have our old bedroom furniture in the guest room. We have already had quite a few visitors. We love having visitors! (hint, hint)

GARAGE: We also just bought a new car to go in the garage. I have been driving my father-in-law's green volvo wagon since we moved back from Minneapolis. Finally we have our own car. It is an Acura MDX and it is really fun to drive.

I had to post a few more picture of peaches. She keeps getting cuter everyday!

Pictures of Peaches....finally!

Here she is....5 months old and almost sitting up on her own. I just about gave up on my blog, but I have had several requests for photos of baby Allison. We are still calling her Peaches or Baby Peach. She is truly a bundle of joy! She is happy and smiling about 95% of the day. She eats like a champ and sleeps through the night. I couldn't have asked for a better baby. We are having so much fun with her. She finally rolled over for the first time at 5 months. The picture below is of her with her cousin, they are the same age! She is definitely small for her age, but she is growing fast. She has big chubby thighs and a little double chin. At her last appointment she weighed about 12 pounds. I will try to post pictures at least once per month.
Pictures of the new house and furniture.....COMING SOON!!

Blessing Day

Our baby girl finally went to church for the first time on her blessing day. She wore the same dress that her cousins wore when they were blessed. Her cousin Halee wore this dress when she was sealed in the temple. Ryan gave her a wonderful blessing. We are having so much fun with her. She has just started to smile and laugh at us. She is almost 2 months old and it is going by so fast.

She didn't like all the itchy lace on her dress, but she looked beautiful!

First Stroller Ride

We have been lucky to have such a mild December this year. We were able to take Allison out for her first stroller ride. This would not have been possible if we were still living in Minneapolis. The midwest has been hit with tons of snow and below zero temperatures. Everytime I watch the weather it makes me grateful that we are back in Utah. Last week, it was 50 degrees and sunny. We bundled her up in her new stroller. At first she didn't know what to think, but she loved being outside and eventually fell asleep. We are excited to experience many more 'firsts.'
