8 Months...




Happy 8 months to our sweet baby girl. Hanna is such a joy with her happy attitude and sweet demeanor.  We just love her so much. 

At 8 months Hanna is...
 super mobile...likes to go up the steps in the upstairs room and and once reaches the top and starts playing she frequently tumbles down them...you would think she'd learn to crawl a little farther before finding a toy..she is getting tougher but she still acts like she is fragile...and puts out the most pitiful pouty lip..haha.

Figured out the art of clapping and does it all day! 

"talks" all the time...

likes to play with any toy..mostly Ty's cars, trucks, tools...haha..but if you leave the room she sure doesn't like that..so, I'll go pick her up and she starts laughing...she's a smart one..haha

Really doesn't enjoy her mid-day nap. cries for awhile before she finally gives up. Actually, she doesn't like any nap. 

Likes to feed herself. She gets a lot of table food but I also give her baby food and she'll even try and feed herself with the spoon...and gets REAL excited when I open the pantry door..just like her big brother did.

Chews on anything and everything...but extremely partial to anything paper or plastic..or leaves. she is our human vacuum.

wants to run and play so badly with Ty...so she prefers to only stand these days. 

Loves to swim...you put her in the pool and she just starts kicking away...


 "If you are happy and you know it clap your hands."


 We compromised to this step...it's a half sit, half stand height for her...


 I hope this isn't the beginning of this face..if so,, OH DEAR..
 Back to standing

On the Road Again...


This past weekend we traveled to San Antonio where we meet the Roby's for a weekend trip. San Antonio is about a halfway meeting point between Houston and Midland and we found a place we might just make a yearly trip! It was wonderful..The JW Marriott Hill Country resort and Spa! It was a hotel and watermark all in one..plus the scenery is beautiful and often times we we forgot we were still in Texas. A wonderful family friendly hotel.  A secure place where all staff members are friendly and everybody speaks english! haha. There was daily activities for kids but also a secluded pool and adult feel for those without kiddos. plus, there is an awesome golf course (apparently a difficult one) and hiking trails...Perfect place. One of our favorite locations to date! I highly recommend it. :) Anywho...of course the night before we are to leave Hanna got her first sickness (besides a cold)...a high 104 fever that started that afternoon and would not break. Luckily our pedi was the on call dr and got hanna an appt the next morning. Sweet baby slept on me...which means I didn't sleep because 1) I was administering Tylenol and Ibuprofen around the clock and 2) I can't sleep with babies in the bed with me...it scares me too much! so the next morning we woke up and got Hanna to the dr where we learned she had a Double Ear Infection...poor baby. I had a feeling since she had been fighting a cold for awhile! Even after antibiotics she was still running a temp...dang that wouldn't break...we contemplated keeping her home but decided she's either going to have a fever/not feel good at home or have a fever/not feel good in a hotel...either way it was the same..so, we loaded up and went! and finally on saturday..her fever was gone! yay! Today is tuesday she's had a low grade off and on but feels and acts sooooo much better. our happy little girl is back! :) I hate it when babies/kids are sick and it's just a waiting game until they feel better...and the parents feel helpless! buy yay for meds!! :) 


Here is our little girl not feeling hot...she basically stayed in the hotel room all day on friday!



The Kiddie Pool....Ty absolutely loved it...all kinds of water shooting out, 3 slides..a little boys dream...Gamy found him a mickey mouse water shooter...and i'm pretty sure everybody at that pool was squirted...haha. best $1 spent! :) entertained him for hours.

 Ty doing what he does best...entertaining.

 beautiful Hill Country
 Gamy and Granddaddy 
 Aunt Ash, Uncle Brian...Addison is due Aug 31st! 
 Each night they had "make your own s'mores" of course we participated.

 Saturday morning they had a kid activity where kids colored/decorated their ducks and then they raced them down a stretch of the lazy river....ty colored his but since hanna was in the room eating Granddaddy decorated hers...with Texas Tech signs of course...haha. 
 Ty showing his ducky..
 The big adult water slide...travis and brian rode that one..ty was too short. had to be at least 48"
 the smaller slide...ty was able to ride this one and once he did he apparently loved it..

 Trae and Brian coming down the last slide into the lazy river.

 Saturday Hanna felt better so she got to play outside for a bit...

 The next ladies pic will have sweet Addison...


 Saturday night's activity was a laser tag game..


It was a great trip..and a perfect meeting spot! Everybody had such a great time...but Sunday it was over and we headed home! :) 
I actually got to go to the grocery store and stalk up since we will be home for a couple of weeks before we are traveling again!!!

on the move....


Oh, Hanna!!!! While we were gone in San Fran we got word that Hanna finally took off crawling (as we figured she would). She is constantly trying to keep up with her Big Brother..no matter where he is..she is also pulling up...even got her first "pulling up boo-boo" while we were gone...a little battle wound never hurt anybody. In fact, she has had a rough couple of spills the last couple of days..some from her new moves..some from her brother (non-intentional though)..I am sure there will be PLENTY more scars to come....here's a peak..


Ty the encourager, "come on hanna." Thanks TY!! ha.
 If you wonder why she is in her diaper often...it's because she is a messy, messy eater..and could care less about her messy self as long as she is eating....i figure she'll be my messy child.

 She loves to rock out to ty's mickey guitar...they typically have jam sessions together..ty gives her one and he keeps one and they go to town....
 Hanna helping with the dishes...one day pretty girl..trust me..take your time.your turn will be soon! :)


 Notice the battle wound on her left cheek..
I think I am going to have to get some big, play tile squares for the kitchen...she's had a couple of not so graceful spills. Once she was sitting like she is in the picture and Ty came around and did his, "I scare you" and did he scare her!!! poor girl feel over flat on her cheek...and poor Ty felt awful. haha...i told ty he wasn't allowed to "scare" hanna anymore bc while he always "scares" me and travis it really does indeed scare Hanna! lol.

Ty is the sweetest big brother, and a good little boy...always loving on her and making sure she is ok...Hanna is such a happy, go lucky baby! I am sooooo blessed to have such wonderful, healthy kids! 

San Fran pictures...




We Had a great time hanging out in San Fran! But, I have to admit..the best time of our whole trip was spent in the car ride to and from abilene and dallas! Those who know Travis know he is quite the entertainer....he just makes me laugh so hard. Yes, being in San Fran was nice with out the kids (for a few days...then we missed them like crazy) but having a nice car ride without kids might have even been better! haha. We laughed so hard, reminisced on childhood shows...(i.e. Salute your Shorts, Hey Dude..etc)..haha..Things that come out of his mouth just make me laugh.  It was just a great time.
Here is our trip in a picture book...





 Walked from Union Square to Fisherman's Wharf....
 that 1.9 miles was a BAD idea...we cabbed it back..haha.



 never a dull moment.
The boat that Titanic was filmed on.. 
 Alcatraz
 Pier 39

 lots of seals...even cute little baby ones..




 The picnic didn't quite feel the hubs up...luckily ben and jerry's was there to help!
