23 years in the making

My mom gave me some things that I wore as a baby. I found them as I was packing up Adilyn's room. I thought it was so special to see Adilyn in something that I wore when I was her age. It is still mind blowing to think that I use to be that small.
She is just a little too big for this outfit.

Don't mind all of the boxes, we are in the middle of moving.

 I just love her.

I should have taken these out for Halloween. She could have gone as me.

My Little Diva

Adilyn likes things a certain way. If things don't go her way she will let you know that she is upset by crying. What a smart girl I have. If I am drinking a cup of water she wants some too. If I don't let her take a sip whining will start and so will lunging for the cup. At nap time if her blanket gets away from her before she falls asleep boy will she cry. If she can't get to her blanket she will cry until you give in back to her. Then she will fall promptly to sleep. Honestly that girl is crazy sometimes.

The other day Orion went to pick her up after her nap and he found her like this.
Apparently her outfit was not how she liked it. She wanted a one shoulder top. What did I tell you? She is such a little diva! ;) See that pacifier above her? She throws it as far away as she can. I kept trying to give her a pacifier when she was younger and she never wanted it. One time at church I had her in the Moby Wrap walking around getting her to fall asleep and I tried to give her a pacifier. She promptly took it out of her mouth and handed it back to me. Diva I tell you.

I am sure she would not be happy with me if I did not share some glamor shots of her.
Hey mom I was not ready yet.
That's better. This is my "I am pretending to crawl look"
This is my "I can fly pose"

I sure do love my little diva.

For Christmas this year we wanted to give more, but did not have lots of money. Shocking right? We just had a baby and now we don't have a lot of extra money. Well we decided to get creative and make gifts.
We decided to make cookie mixes. It was pretty simple and not that expensive. In our house we love cookies so we always have the ingredients on hand. It made it easy to make 15 mixes to hand out. I am sure if we had to buy all the ingredients at once things would have been more expensive. Our friends made them last year and we just loved the idea so we had to copy them. Thanks DJ and Kylie!
It only took an hour or so to put them all together. I think it took me longer to write out all of the cards then it did to put all the ingredients in the jar. Orion and I made a little assembly line to speed things along.
Adilyn was kind enough to take a long nap while we were working on the jars. We even had time to watch an episode of something after we finished. It was a good day. I really enjoyed making these jars and being able to give out presents to more people than just family. I think it will be a new family tradition of ours. Lets be honest who can say no to cookies at Christmas time?

Phone pictures

I finally figured out how to upload pictures from my phone.

She is so cute!

She wanted to try and grow facial hair like her daddy.

I just love that face!

                                               We had an English Christmas dinner.

Just stretching after a walk.

She kicked me off the computer

In Adilyn's mind she is a big girl and can do everything I do. She has mastered drinking out of my water bottle.

Pretty much all of the pictures on my phone are of her. I just can't help myself. I love her so much.

When Orion watches the baby

He does this....
He apparently thinks that this qualifies as watching Adilyn. Notice she is chowing down on her wipes.
He said he could still hear her so she was fine. I sure do wonder about him sometimes.
