This is a video of Jessy's photo shoot.  I saw it for the first time while we were on vacation in Dallas and I cried.  I loved that Kelly did this for us.  So cute, short and sweet!

Happy Birthday Baby

Our baby turns 1 today!  What an adventure we have had over the last year.  Daddy and I are so very proud of the precious little girl she is becoming and we love her so very much.

First Plane Trip

We just got back from our first plane trip with Baby J.  We went to Dallas with daddy for a work convention and stayed at the Gaylord Texan.  It was a busy week!

The plane ride went better than expected and actually the hotel stay did also.  We just stuck Jessy in bed with us and by the third night she was sleeping all night.

We visited the aquarium...

After a hectic first few days I rented a cabana and we stayed at the pool all day, it was very relaxing.

We met some REALLY tall people.... and had some great food.

Let's talk about Father's Day... last night I set the kitchen towel on fire when I decided to lay it on a hot burner, got that extinguished to go out to flip the ribs I was making and the BBQ read 700 degrees and of course the ribs were completely on fire. (Someone missed the chore of cleaning the grill).  So my husband had to go get his Father's Day dinner at Burger King.  How's THAT for a first Father's Day?  Can only get better from here right?

Getting ready for our first plane ride.  I'm really stressed about it since I have a teething baby who is going through the toughest "Wonder Week" of them all. (That wonder week lasts 5 weeks this time...).  We went to the Dollar store and bought a bunch of junk toys to bribe her with, of course the flight is sold out and she's not good at sitting still lately.

I made a bunch of these to pass out on the plane so they don't pelt us with stale peanuts when she loses her marbles...  Yes I put ear plugs in there.

Happy Father's Day

He's not only the best husband in the world, he's the best father.

We are so lucky to have you.

We spent the entire weekend outside.  This is what happens when daddy is bored...

Saturday we spent out in the yard playing on a slip and slide... which I can't show you pictures because she was in the buff for most of the day, although I did take a ton of pictures!  We are battling a teething diaper rash, hopefully that tooth comes out today or tomorrow, its RIGHT THERE... I hate teething.

Sunday we met some friends at the pool and had a great time.  Her friend's name is Zoe.

Aaaahh the summer popsicle.

I had fun giving Jessy her first taste of a popsicle yesterday afternoon.  Although I'm not entirely sure she liked it....

Finger Lickin' Good

I had given Baby J her dinner and we were playing when dad came home.  He got his dinner (fried chicken) and sat down on the couch to eat.  Baby J climbed up beside him.

I turned around and saw this...

All I could think was TRANS-FAT... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  But she was greedily sucking on the chicken leg that I didn't have the heart to stop her.  So after a killer glare at my husband I grabbed the camera.  Mother of the year award right here.

On Saturday I surprised my husband with a trip to Seattle to meet some of the Seahawks players.  Michael Bennett was having a cocktail party for his charity OCEAN.  Its a fantastic program to help kids fight obesity.  And the way he goes about it is to teach the parents how to make healthy meals on a budget.  I love that!  We were able to get some things signed by about 15 of the players, from Percy Harvin to Malcolm Smith (MVP of the Superbowl).  It was a really fun event.  Afterward when everyone left we got to sit down with several of the players for a private dinner.  It was probably the coolest thing I've ever done with the Seahawks... and I've done ALOT.

 That was the view from the bathroom. 76 Floors up.
Got to play DJ for awhile, although Michael Bennett did it alot better than me!

Brandon Mebane.  We got to ask him how he felt about the President talking about his belly roll!

Gregg Scrubbs was our dinner mate.  It was fun getting to know him.  These guys have their heads on straight, so proud of the good men the Seahawks organization have.

Michael Bennett and his family are so sincere and genuine people.  I think know he's going to be my new favorite player. Go Hawks!!

Summer is HERE!

So this weekend we did alot of fun things... including an event with several of the Seattle Seahawks players... but more on that tomorrow.

Friday was a beautiful day and we met "grandpa" at a local brewery to play out on the lawn with Jessy.

I made Jessy her first egg salad sandwich!  Which she decided to wear instead of eat....

And since the weather is so hot she opened one of her birthday presents early and got to play with her water table last night! Yes that is spaghetti sauce all over her face. I swear she got a bath later.
