Long post...

Well, it seems like FOREVER since I have had the internet. We moved into our new place in West Jordan and hadn't gotten an internet plan until just a few days ago, I felt so disconnected to the world!! But here we are again, so I am updating my blog. It's going to be a long one since we've done so much since the last time I posted a blog!

My baby girl is 9 months old today!! I can't believe how fast time flies! It just seems like yesterday when I welcomed her to the world! She gets sweeter and sweeter everyday! She says "BA BA BA" and "DA DA DA" now. She also likes to suck her thumb and finger and say "Goy goy goy," it's so cute and funny! She's learning new sounds every day. Also, one time when I was changing her diaper, she started moving away and I was like, "Hey! Get get get get!!" (Like get back here) and she said it! Sometimes she'll say "get get get" now. It's so cute! It's fun to see her personality come out.

She can sit by herself and she is quite the scooter! She's so fast! One minute she's on the floor here and the next minute, I look down and she's gone - across the room and doing something else, she's so smart! And she's finally got a tooth coming in. I tried to get a good picture, but this is the best I could do. She hates it when I probe around in there trying to get a good shot.

I was watching Fox 13 one night and it said, "Text 'Blimpie' to blah-blah-blah number and you could be our next winner!" So I just casually took my phone and texted the word. That was on a Saturday. The very next Monday I got a call from Fox 13 and they said, "YOU WON a 3-foot party blast sub!" Woohoo! Immediately, I thought, 'I smell a picnic coming on!"

The sandwich was huge! It came in this box:

So I invited my brothers and their families over for a picnic in the park, it was so fun! The kids had a lot of fun playing at the West Jordan City Park (Veteran's Memorial Park) that me and Juan discovered a few weeks ago. It's a nice park! We take Sierra there to swing in the baby swings all the time now, she loves to swing!

Here's Dave having fun with the kids!

The kids love taking Sierra down the slides, and I think she likes it too! She loves her cousins!

More fun in the park - here's Trent and his son, Blake, on the swing! It was a good picnic in the park!

Here's Sierra with her new cousin, Melaiya (Trent's daughter) interacting, sooo cute!

Playing on the train at Trent's house.

Dave and Amy (my brother and sister-in-law) were asked by Amy's sister to go and housesit for a night, so they invited us to come and watch movies, play games, whatever. It was so fun! Here's Sierra relaxing in the HUGE love-sac. I think she liked it!

And me and Juan got on a good game with the air-hockey table - that was so much fun - I kicked his butt! We need an air-hockey table!!

Sarelle and her family were able to come to Utah from Georgia in August, so her kids got to meet the newest cousins, Sierra and Melaiya. Here are all the nephews and nieces (minus Melaiya, she wasn't there at the time.) So cute together!! I hope we can all get together again soon!
L - R : Blake (Trent's son) Trey (Sarelle's son) Courtney (Cameron's daughter) holding Sierra, then there's Derek (Cameron's son) Xavier and Chase (Sarelle's sons). I love all my nephews and nieces!

Sierra just cuddled right up to Trey, so cute!

And I think she loved Xavier too!

We were able to go with Sarelle and everyone up to Park City and ride the Alpine slide - I LOVE that! Then, we went to a park for lunch and to let the kids play, they had a blast! Here's Sierra swinging for the very first time, I think she enjoyed it.

We went with my friend, Sally and her family to the zoo, it was Juan and Sierra's first time at the Hogle zoo, it was a lot of fun!

So much so that Sierra zonked right out!
And last but not LEAST in my long post is something I thought I'd NEVER DO! I rode WICKED at Lagoon with Courtney, Derek, and Cameron! Wow! What a rush! It was a lot of fun to go to Lagoon with Cameron and his family.
And YES, I lived through it! I survived Wicked! hehehehe
That's all for now!
