21 months

Silly little sassy pants is getting so big! This is the last picture I have of hazey with her binky... (It stays in the crib now!) she's been doing great. Even though every morning she says "binky come?" And I remind her binky stays so she drops it and says "bye bye binky" it's pretty cute how she asks every day though.
She picked out some jake underwear.. We are not ready to potty train but are trying to get her excited to wear undies!

Some of her favorite things train rides at valas pumpkin patch with mommy, swinging leaning forward, and feeding herself a Mac and cheese.

We watched a pig race at the pumpkin patch the other day and now she likes to call out "suuuuueyy" to call for the piggies.

Oh and several times throughout the day she asks to cuddle mommy <3 melt my heart. We snuggle and watch bubble guppies, magic school bus, or curious George. (Her latest favorites) 

We turned her forward facing in her car seat and she loves being able to see more. 

I love my little hazey

1 year anniversary

Happy 1 year anniversary for my RN career. It was even acknowledged in the monthly newsletter. Let's see how year #2 goes :)!


Childrens museum

Here in Omaha there is a wonderful childrens museum. I took hazel once last winter and she was still kinda little to participate in a lot, so when I took her this past week it was SO MUCH fun! 
Hazel and Nash driving the fire truck
The fun water
A mini house, with a mini crib that hazel liked to pretend to sleep in...
She wanted to give the baby kisses good night! 
As you can tell she was obsessed with the fire hat!!

It is so much fun to watch her grow up! I love being her mom!


Labor Day weekend

Over Labor Day weekend hazel and I were able to go out to Arizona to be there for baby Macs baby blessing. It was so much fun but we missed Jason so much! We almost weren't able to go because I had jury duty and got called to be on the jury... For a murder trial.. It was crazy! But the judge dismissed me early due to my plane tickets and called up an alternate jury member to fill my spot. While in Arizona,  We shopped played ate a ton and played some more. On Sunday it was so sweet to hear baby macs blessing. Here is a picture recap.

Thank you for working so hard, helping me, loving hazey and I unconditionally and being my better half. 27 years young and like 70 more to go ;) we love you!

Back to school

Jason is back to school, and I start back for my last semester on Tuesday we are working into our routine... And of course it gets thrown off.. I got another job, then was called to be on a jury, trip to Arizona, and Jason's birthday. But here's a picture recap of what we've been up to 
Lots of playing with friends, zoo trips and treats.
