This month has been crazy, I can't believe it's already over. I am excited for Valentines Day because this year I told Ryan I wanted to plan it since he planed the past three years. I am also going to make Paisley a Valentines Day outfit, hopefully it will turn out the way I want it to.

Next week my mom and I are going to be going up to Northern Utah to go see my extended family. I went up there for Christmas but I was only able to spend a day with them so I am excited to be up there for five days. I asked Ryan if he was going to miss me and he said of course but I know he is excited for me to be gone because that means he can play his video games as long as he wants. I am also excited to take pictures of Paisley up there. I am hoping there is going to be snow!!! I have been practicing a lot more with my camera and I feel like my pictures are getting better everyday.

Poor Paisley, this past week she has not been herself. She isn't sleeping well at all which means I'm not sleeping well. She is constantly wanting to be held and fights her naps unless she is overly tired, then she will just pass out. I hope this means a tooth is coming in. I hate seeing her like this.

Oh My GOODNESS!!!!! I love these photos that Korindi took for Paisley's 6 month photos.

Every time we go to get Paisley's photos done I hope and pray that everything goes smooth. This time she had three different outfits so changing her that many times in such a short period I knew was eventually going to get to her, and it did. I noticed she was getting frustrated from all of the changes so I decided to give her some free time. After she finished her bottle and changed her diaper we put her in her final outfit and sat her on the chair. She then started to cry pretty much right away, she was done... I was really wanting her to be happy because the set up was just too cute to miss.

Well.... there is this song that Paisley loves and I mean LOVES. She could be screaming bloody murder in the car and when I turn the song on she will start smiling, kicking her feet and having a good time. But when I go to show people she just sits there, which then makes me look like a crazy person. So when she started to cry I told Korindi that this might not work but it's worth the try. I turned on her song (You Lie by The Band Perry) and she just perked right up and was all smiles. I'm glad she didn't make me a liar that time. I was so happy to get those last couple of shots and as you can see Korindi once again did an amazing job.

365 Days With You Week 1

This is something new I am going to do with our family blog, it's called 365 Days With You. I was meaning to take some new pictures of Paisley this week but I haven't been feeling well so I just took some old ones and put fun quotes with them. I think I might turn this into a flip book for P. I got this idea from babymakinmachine.com.

New Years 2012

Wow! I cannot believe how fast this past year has just come and gone. Onto 2012....
My New Years resolution is to be 99.9% cloth diapering by the end of January. I have been using both cloth and disposable diapers and I must say I much rather prefer cloth diapers. Disposable diapers have been nothing but problems for us. Number one reason why I hate them so much is because Paisley is always getting diaper rashes. I noticed when she is in her cloth diapers it never happens, so this is my main reason for going the cloth route. The reason why I have it 99.9% and not 100% is if I have a babysitter that isn't comfortable using the cloth the disposable will be there for her to use.

My next New Years resolution is to run a 5K and a 10K. I have been saying for many years now that I am going to do it and I never do, so Next week I am going to be signing up for a 5K in March. I figure if I actually sign up and pay the money I will do it.

Also, I would like to get back in shape just like everyone else. This is the time of year where I hate going to the gym. Everyone is wanting to do the same the same thing with losing weight that the gyms are packed. It starts to die down around March, so in the mean time I will be going either really late or working out at home.

Last but not least I want to become more organized. I don't consider myself a hoarder but I do have a hard time getting rid of things that have memories behind them. (Just like wedding cards that I haven't read since I got married that now collect dust buried in some box in some room in the house. But I'm not throwing them away!) <-- Ryan wrote that and I completely disagree with him, we will NOT be getting rid of the cards.
