she gives us this look a whole lot (i wonder what shes trying to tell me?)
Grammy got her this cute dress for christmas so we decided to let her wear the pretty thing to church today. then came home cause she was not having it not at all. church today was oh my gosh lets just say not her cup of tea. so then we get home and she falls right asleep of course. would she do that at church? no way. haha. then she was happy so i snapped some shots.

reading a book. she sure loves that
delila and her cousin mason. he is 2 months older than her. notice their hands in the mouth. :)


what a teething child does!

I have learned in my short time as a mommy that When a child is teething they look like this a lot. (in the picture above)
she drools non stop and never has her hands outa her mouth unless there is something else to chew on. (seriously)

then when you try to take out whatever she is chewing on, the result is this. (in the above picture)
lastly you get a child who looks at you like why in the heck did you do that to me? i was really enjoying that.

Anyways this last week has been so much fun. the runny nose the lil fevers here and there and the drooling! oh gosh the drooling!! also the i am uncomfortable help me help me attitude. and i mean ATTITUDE! we love her anyways and give her tons of loves!!

you can feel little teeths under the gum though. poor Lila!

Oh no!

Well Delila and her Daddy decided to spend some quality time playing the 360. (just what a 5 month old needs to do right?) HAHA!! it was just funny so we took the picture. delila likes the controller though. She has a lil spit up in the corner of her mouth. she was saving it for later! KIDDING! so anyways this was just cute.


Delila giggles!

whenever we eat her tummy she thinks it is funny. Richard is much better than myself but it is still cute!!!!!!

p.s. i know i sound like a witch. sorry, but delila thinks that it is funny!

Mommy and Delila

She and i have so much fun together! she is a fun fun baby. she giggles at everything and she just loves , loves , loves to watch and watch and watch people. it is cute. big eyes and a moving head non stop. we love her much!

HAHA!! so we fluffed up the red dress over the bumbo and snapped some shots of delila! just a quick easy way to wish everyone happy holidays! cause really, no one wants to see mom and dad, only baby D! haha. Anyways Delila is so much fun. as you can SEE is she is a chunky one now. cheeks for days just like her momma. delila and i look a lot a like. i was going through my pictures as a baby and whoa!

So Delila is also 4 months old now of course. and she is super fun. she can grab anything now and then it goes right in the mouth. she is so strong with her legs. she will push her bum bum up and keep it up. but her arms yea dont count on them. she doesnt love tummy time AT ALL! but she has to do it. haha. lets see what else. she holds her bottle on her own now. we got her the little handles to put on the bottle and she loves that she can hold it and then take it away and look around and laugh then throw the bottle back into her mouth. super cute. now my favorite thing ever is that she will talk and talk and talk and talk. it all started while visiting her papa. they had full on conversations. super cute. anyways she is perfect. her dr visit is on wed. so we'll see how she is growing. and she has to get shots :( no fun but oh well it is life we all did it.

Bath Time Love!!

HaHa!! This picture makes me Laugh!!!

Hey guys!! sorry it has been a lil while! Anyhow with Delila's bathtub there are different stages so with the newborn it had a sling they lie in it all comfy in the water. then the second stage is when they can nearly sit up there is a lil ledge to sit in just like in the swimming pool you sit on a step but get nearly all the way under water. so that is what she is in now and the third stage is they sit in the big opening part when they can fully sit up and play! so that is that. she is loving this new stage. We put the lil ducky in and she See's it. Doesn't know yet what to do with it but close. she puts her feet in the bath and kicks. so cute. this morning she was just relaxing in the warm water. Bath Time Love!!!!!!
