Hoop-de Doop, Dickory Dock

holidays = fun!
parades, candy, bike rides, Santa, sleep, fires, food, hats, family and a deep fried frenzy.  
unable to contain ourselves waiting for the abc family 25 days of Christmas, we have watched most of our Christmas movies already, and im sure we will watch them another 3 times before Christmas.
looking forward to temple lights, tamales and gift giving.

Sugar Baby

 Peters family is really big on dressing up together for Halloween.  This year was Star Wars.  Darth Vader, a Jedi and a baby ewok what a family.  Having a baby is a holiday dream come true.  I can finally trick or treat again.  I made sure to grab the good candy too.  If you hand me a bucket of candy I'm taking the Reeses, Snickers or 100 Grand.  Dont think that just cause im holding the bag of a 5 month old that im going to take a dumdum.  
 Our little ewoks; Scout, Caroline, and Claire.  

After trick or treating Scout got her second wind and was cracking me up.  Im not sure what it is about other babies but Scout just loves them.

Spooky Scary

Scout "finch" Dangerford, our girl in overalls.  I always have great ideas and think things like going to the pumpkin patch will be so much fun and that Scout will have a blast.  But without fail every time we have something planned she decides to not nap and be fussy.  So going to the local pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins and hangout in overalls ends up being a chore to keep our girl awake.  Also, I was very disappointed with the pumpkin selection and we walked away empty handed. 
But she looks so cute, right?

Before Scout was even born for some reason I really wanted her to be a cub Scout for Halloween, I'm not sure why.  I just want her to be comfortable and warm. 

 This is what Scouts face looks like most of the time these days.  You would guess that with all the drool she would be teething but you would be wrong she is just really gross that way.

After collecting all her candy loot she was sacked out and fell asleep in Dads arms on the walk home. 
*is it wrong to collect candy for baby who wont actually be eating it, i was getting some comments about it while trunk or treating. first baby first halloween we are trick or treating folks. am i right?

Ballad Of A Teenage Queen

my girl is growing up. unfortunately for me she thinks she is a much older baby. scout no longer wants her bottle, she sits up (kinda), and likes to stay up all night.
next week: walking.

-i take early morning walks and wear ankle weights

Colorado Bound

Peter caught himself a baby bear cub in Colorado.

No its a baby.
However, this baby got really good at playing dead in her bear
suit just in case of a real bear attack.

Wolf Creek Pass with Grandma and Aunt Lynda,
and hiking the falls with dad.

Peter aka "Rock Pushing Pete" really got the job done out at Nanny's burial site. The cemetery was beautiful and very rustic. Once it was all said and done, everyone was really proud of how it looked, especially Papa. Scout is already developing a love of the woods like her parents.

The bakery in Pagosa Springs is definitely something to write home about. This, of course, is made obvious by Peter's strange expression in this picture with his breakfast sandwich.

Needless to say, after our trip, Peter and I have decided to become snowbirds by the time he turns 35 and own some property somewhere in Colorado.

At the end of the day Scout quickly fell asleep with her old friend Jem.

Lawdy, Miss Clawdy

I never thought I would be the one to post tons of baby photos. I thought I would have tons of other things to post blogs about I thought I was more
interesting than that....but I'm not.

How can you not post photos when your baby makes faces like this.

Gee, Baby, Ain't I Good To You?

Im an inexperienced mom i know but i felt terrible today at the mall when i had to wrap my baby up like this...

because underneath she looked like this.

I just thought i would check if she needed a diaper change there was a pea green poo explosion everywhere all over her clothes...everywhere. I felt so bad, we walked around the mall like this until we could find some new clothes.

Thankfully not too many people noticed.

Swimming Song

Happy 4th of July! Check out this girl swim. Scout is really upset she has to miss the girls trip to Mexico next weekend now that she has a killer summer beach bod. That unsightly umbilical cord was really getting in the way of her rockin' a bikini this summer.

Wes and Peter got really ambitious and made fried chicken and hot wings, I can't think of anything more patriotic.

Just my milk drunk baby.

Sleep Late, My Lady Friend

i thought people were kidding when they said all babies do is sleep and eat and surprisingly scout is sticking to the mold (for now anyway).

scout getting her nails cut by one of my seasoned sisters, i thought i might cut off her fingers. summer you did a fine job.

everyone loves a baby. it's nice having so many people around to take care of my baby. i'm pretty sure will likes her the most, finally someone smaller than him.

here is one of my favorite pictures, showing off the fact that scout is already papa pete's little girl.
we are so glad she is here.
we love you scoonts!

After 15 hours off laboring our stubborn girl decided she was too tired to finish what she started so the doctors had to take her c-section. Just like her mom she had the cord wrapped around her neck. She hung in there like a champ and we ended up with a beautiful baby.
8 lbs 6 oz and 22 inches long, I was shocked. We are still trying to figure out where all of her features come from. She has her dads furrowed brow and her moms chin, but beyond that we can't decide.
Grandma Dee was first to meet Scout this morning and Scout was so wide awake and happy. The girl keeps her eyes open the whole time she is awake, such a mature baby.
