Happy Birthday to Me!!

So Ryan did very well for my birthday this year. I woke up to Strawberry crepes that he made for me. Every Saturday he wakes up and makes me breakfast but this one was my favorite to date. Then we went and dropped Leilani off at my moms house and Ryan took me to a spa for an hour long massage. It was a couples massage so we both got one in the same room at the same time. It was an amazing experience. I have never felt so relaxed in my life. I could really get used to that feeling. It was the perfect birthday gift. Thank you so much Ryan. You are a wonderful husband. 
After that we went home and took a little nap. It felt soooo nice. I slept for an hour but it felt like I had been out for 8. Then we went back to my parents house for some carne asada and some cake. I got a ton of Twilight stuff from my sister Yvette and date to get manicures with Lily. It was really the perfect birthday. I will never forget the day I turned 26. Thank you everyone that made it special for me. 

Ryan just told me no post is complete without a picture of Leilani so here is a recent shot of her at my moms house.

Teeth and a New Game

Leilani officially has a pair of teeth now. The two lower middle teeth have officially broken through. They look so cute. It really has been a ton of fun watching her grow. Every stage gets more and more fun. I'm really looking forward to the sleep though the night stage.  Congrats on the teeth princess. We love you!!

Pretty Brown Eyes!!

So here is the new game. With crawling comes opening cupboards and scattering DVDS all over he floor. We knew this was coming but we were hoping it would be another month or so before it started. Notice all the chick flicks on the floor. Not a lot of macho movies. I guess we know who runs this house.

She has figured it out. We now have a crawler on our hands. She's not going to break any land speed records but it is sure cute to watch.

Happy Easter!!

This has been a really fun easter weekend for us. Friday Lizeth and her mom went out easter dress shopping for Leilani. It turned out to be Easter Dress, a ton of toys, and other outfits shopping. She looks adorable it all of it so I thought I would post a few pictures. 

This is the result of only being able to crawl backwards. 

She actually started crawling forwards tonight. She pushes her body with one leg and drags the other. She will have it totally down soon but it is really cute to watch her crawl this way.

So here is the Easter Dress. Good choice Mom.

Saturday morning the family met up at a park in Loma Linda and had a really great time. We had a little easter egg hunt for the kids. We had a great lunch in the park. Chase and Veronica made a easter egg pinata. It really was an awesome day for everyone. It's always nice to get together with everyone and chat. 

Chase tried to get his dad to eat this worm.

The kids tried to take off with the mustang.

Mi familia!

This kid has been waking pinatas since he was a new born. He's a pro!!

Leilani's first swing at a pinata. She needed a little help but she seemed to like it.

Chloe and Savannah going after the candy.

Trey is too cute!

Leilani!!! Stop growing!!!

Monty and Trey sharing a moment. 

Kyle on the prowl for eggs.

Mia and Emma prior to the hunt. I think they were wanting to get started already.

After the pinata was destroyed this was the chaotic scene that followed. 

It took Leilani about 2 seconds to fall asleep once she hit the car on the drive home. Thanks for the balloon Veronica.

Tyler was baptized saturday night. It is hard to believe that he is already 8 years old. Congratulations Tyler. You are a great kid and a great example to your cousins and siblings. Keep it up.

Nine months now!!!

Teething is no fun. No fun for the parents or the children. Leilani has two teeth that are flirting with breaking through her lower gums. They are really making her uncomfortable. It's sad to see. She has been a little more fussy than usual but it is understandable. I do have to admit that she actually slept through the night a couple days ago. Thank you Leilani!!
So what has this girl been up to? She is now say "dada dada" a lot. I love it. She somehow can get to any place in a room without the ability to crawl. I have not quite figured out how she does it yet. She may crawl when I am not looking. I don't think she can but she will move all the way across a room quickly and I do not know how it's done. She is like some stealthy ninja baby. I have seen her crawl backwards. Maybe that is the secret. 

Here are a few pictures from a fun night at Mammy's place. She played with Chase and Savy and had a good time. She is lucky to have such sweet cousins. 

Here is Savy giving her some advice about life.

She loved riding on this thing. 

Savy made faces while Chase let Leilani play with a walky-talky.

Cute kids!! Thanks for a fun night!!
