Cannon Beach holds a spot near and dear to my heart. I have been going on family vacations every year for the last 31 years to that wonderful place...my entire life! So I was so excited to bring Sienna for her first official visit (last year I was preggers with her and didn't know it) to Cannon Beach and begin a new tradition for our little family. I think all in all she LOVED every stinking bit of it. Laying her on our front lawn of our beach house, she was just in Heaven with the fresh ocean air and the wind blowing. Her first time her little feets hit the sandy beach she squealed with excitement and her first wave jumping in that freezing cold Pacific Ocean made her take a deep breath and smile. I think we have a lifer. Not that I was worried that she wouldn't like it, I mean who doesn't love cannon beach?? The place where you relax, drink , play, and eat all day. Nothing better! Another year in the books. Can't wait for next year, I am getting excited just thinking about it. :) 

Enjoy the pics! FYI...They are out of order and I don't know how to move them!  Plus there are a million more where these came from!

Belly Laugh

This isn't the first official belly laugh but it is still pretty darn cute.  Sienna's first belly laugh was way more laughing then in this video. 

P.S. I don't know how to shorten the vid so when it starts getting boring, stop watching.  LOL and ignore my dorkyness! :)

5 Years!

LT and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary by buying ourselves a couch. Woo Hoo!  What a fun gift! :)  AND we went up to the spot where it all went down 5 years ago, Semiahmoo Resort.  We took a little day trip visit.  This was our first time back since 7/7/7 and not a whole lot has changed.  It was fun to go back and see all of our special spots and to show Sienna, although she won't remember. :) 

Happy 5 Years LT!  Here is to many, many more!!

4 Months

Sienna, happy 4 months!  You still manage to consume my every thought, especially now that I am officially back to work.  I know you will have a fun summer with daddy but I miss you like crazy when I am at work all day.  The best part of the day is coming home and you giving me a huge smile like you really missed me...LOVE.

Here is what you have been up to:

  • you rolled over at Grandma Marilyn's from tummy to back without mommy or daddy there to see it!
  • you grab for everything and as soon as you have it you put it straight into your mouth to see how it tastes
  • you still drool like crazy
  • you are now sleeping in your crib...you wake up about 2-3 times after we put you down within the first 15 mins and then finally after a half hour you are ok to sleep in the crib
  • your mommy had to go back to work and she is really sad to leave you
  • your daddy is on summer break and is really excited to take care of you for the whole summer
  • you went to your first emerald downs race
  • you rolled over from back to front at Brigg's house
  • you celebrated your first 4th of July
  • you giggle a lot now...especially at mommy's dancing
  • your dad taught you to stick out your tongue and you do it all the time
  • when you are eating and I start to talk you look up at me with those big blues and smile
  • there are times where you won't let anyone hold you but your mommy or daddy
  • you love your great grandpa O a lot...you give him so many smiles
  • you have moved onto number 2 diapers
  • you can still fit into your 0-3 month clothes but 3 month clothes fit you the best
  • you don't like getting strapped into your carseat
  • you love being outdoors and it is starting to really feel like summertime in Seattle
weight 13 LBS - 25-50%
length 25 1/2 inches 90%
head 16 1/8 50%
You, Miss Sienna Hope, are the love of our lives.  We fall in love with you more and more each day if that is even possible.  You are one special little babe!

Now could you please stop growing so fast.  Thank you.

Happy 4th of July

There you go stickin your tongue out
