Swing your sword...

Cougar football starts tonight.  For some reason this season has got me really pumped up!  I guess it could be that we have a new coach, new upgraded stadium and a new era of COUGAR FOOTBALL.  Or maybe it was when we were walking in our new neighborhood the other night and a neighbor came running out of their house to yell "GO Cougs!" because he saw us wearing our crimson and gray.  In return we said Go Cougs and asked him if he went to WSU and his response was "Best 6 years of my life!!".  See that is the thing about Pullman, WSU, you just don't ever want to leave once you are there. :) 

Here is a saying that I love and so true about cougs:

"I can't define it, I can't tell somebody who isn't a cougar what it is like.  There's something that happens at Washington State; you quietly and subtly become infected...Washington State has a passion.  Being a cougar is a passion"  - Coach Jim Walden

GOOOO COUGS!!!  Fight, fight, fight for Washington State!

Sienna is ready for the Cougs too!  We have all the gear for her to prove it :).

IM's Fulfilled

As I was going thru some of my documents I came accross a document that read IMs.  It was some IMs I saved when Meghan and I were preggos!  They really crack me up.  Here is one chain that we definitely fulfilled while on maternity leave:
Meghan Blalock says
we can go on walks and vent
and we will be able to drink caffine
Amanda Turner says
lots of fam and friends
Meghan Blalock says
well not a lot of it
but we can
Amanda Turner says
Meghan Blalock says
and drink
and beer
Amanda Turner says
happy hours here we come
with babies!
Meghan Blalock says
Amanda Turner says
seriously the only alocohol that i actually would want right now is beer
Meghan Blalock says
me too!
i am the same way
Amanda Turner says
guess what my lunch is today?
Meghan Blalock says
Can you guess if Meghan was right that I had cereal for lunch?  Cliff hanger!! 
Happy Hour. At 2:30PM. With Babies. Only Ones There. Laughing The Whole Way Home On Our Walk.

Sienna was not impressed with my Blue Moon
Now our IMs will probably be about how much we miss the kiddos and what Sienna and Briggs are doing at 6 months.  Welcome back to work bright spot is we get to IM again!

Bounce with it!

LT has been home all summer with Sienna and I love getting the random texts and pictures during the day at work.  Seriously makes my day!  BUT yesterday had to be one of the funniest texts I have got in awhile and with it was a video.  Please enjoy my full of personality little girl!  She cracks me up!!!!  Love her and her energy!  I was literally laughing out loud at work. :)

LT's text to me: "Too much fun jumpping!"

Backyard Olympics

Sunday, the last day of the Olympics, we decided to do a little floor routine in Meghan and Zeb's backyard.  And by we, I mean the girls forced the guys to do a cartwheel competition.  Please see the form in the photos below.  Not sure why they didn't make the Men's US gymnastics team!

Splish Splash!!

Sienna got a new pool and she absolutely loves it!  I think we might like it a little bit too since the weather has been amazing.

So fun to have a kiddie pool again! :)  Next up slip and slide.

testing it out...Thanks Kristin for my bathing suit!

loving it!

I could get used to this!


dad can fit in it too!

So fun!

I even put my head in the water.  BIG Girl!

You are officially 5 months Sienna!  You are totally starting to look more like a little kid than a baby and that makes me sad but at the same time excited for all the new things you are doing.

Here is what you have been up to:

- you had your 1st belly laugh and when you laugh everyone in the room gets the giggles too because it is so cute!
- you had your1 trip to Cannon Beach
-1st Seafair
- you like to hold our hands when you fall asleep
- you say "mamammomomama" but LT thinks it isn't mom just jibberish
- you talk a lot, and sometimes very loud just so that the people around you know that you have something important to say
- you roll over all the time
- you grab for everything
- you always want to eat whatever we are eating
- you ate rice cereal and are not to crazy about it, but you liked avacado
- still drooling like crazy, but no teeth!
- you like to dance in the johnny jumpper
- still wearing 3 month clothes
- still in #2 diapers
- you went to your 1st outdoor concert at the U-Village
- sleeping consistently thru the night has not been your strong point
- you love Bob Marley and Jack Johnson music
- you smile so big when Mom comes home from work (best feeling)
- when we lay you down in your crib at night in one direction, and we come into check on you, you have completely flipped around or are sideways in your crib. ALWAYS moving!

We love the little personality that you are starting to develop and you are just the sweetest, cutest little peanut.  LOVE YOU BABY GIRL!
