Sometime last week (for some reason I can't remember which day) my sister, mom, niece, nephews and I went to the Zoo. It was a grand ol' time, except for the fact that I thought we were going to the Aquarium and I wore high heels. Bad idea for going to the Zoo. I don't recommend it.

Lazy Bears
This Giraffe was really funny. Was this a perfect snap-shot or what?
So, this Peacock wasn't even in a cage or anything, but apparently it thought I was worth showing his feathers off to.
I'm not really sure what's going on here.

Kicking Eggs

This is just a funny video of Claire kicking some plastic eggs. She did it for quite a while; fortunately, I'm only making you watch a little bit of it. I can't rotate it... Sorry.

Monday, March 24, 2008


So this weekend was filled with Easter fun. Friday, well, had nothing to do with Easter, but Levi and I got to go on our weekly date. We went and saw Horton Hears a Who. So cute. That was my choice, Levi wasn't as excited as I was. Saturday we went over to Levi's Grandpa's house and watched his cousin's kids hunt for eggs. Sage and I pretty much just hung out in the corner the whole time. Afterwards, we went to my parents house where my neice and nephews are staying for a week (I haven't seen them in 3 years!) and we decorated eggs. Sunday we went over to Levi's other Grandparents house and mingled with the fam there. Everyone passed Claire around and enjoyed her little Easter outfit. Her cousins Tori and Sadie LOVED seeing her and thought she was "sooo cute!!!" They were adorable with her. I'm sad I didn't get any pictures of Emily, Sage, Cheyenne and Me, though. I totally forgot to take a picture of us! But after that we went over to my parents house again and watched the kids hunt for eggs there. It took them a little longer than expected but eventually they found all of them after giving them a few hints here and there. All in all it was a great weekend and I loved being around so many people.

My pretty Claire and Me

This is just in case anyone wanted to see yet another picture of us. I know, I know, I'm always thinking of everyone else.

I got tagged again...

So I have to list 5 random facts about myself-I'm not very exciting so I don't blame you if you skip this and move on.

1. I've moved 10 times in my life--That's 10 different states, that's not including moving to different houses/apartments.

2. I'm VERY shy when I'm one on one with someone I don't really know that well--in a group of people, I'm ok. Because I'm so shy, people think I'm a snot... or boring since I don't talk very much, but give it time!! It takes me a little bit to open up.

3. I'm soooo scared of heights--I went to Disneyland a couple of years ago and we went on that virtual ride where it's like you're hang gliding over california--yeah, I had to close my eyes 'cause I was so scared of the "heights". Pathetic, I know.

4. Going off number 3: I hate flying and I have a mini panic attack during lift-off every single time. One time I was sitting next to a stranger and he saw me freaking out and asked me if I wanted to hold his hand haha.

5. I hated being pregnant. The only things I liked were feeling her kick and the anticipation of having a child. Everything else sucked: I was fat, I'm pretty sure I smelled bad sometimes 'cause I'd sweat due to my fatness, and food never tasted good but I was always starving. Worst combination ever. Everything wanted to make me gag. But another good thing was that I never got sick. Hooray!

K that's all.. and I tag.... NO ONE!!!

Sitting Up

So she's not QUITE there yet, but today Claire sat up for a good 3-5 minutes all by herself, with a little help from her arms. It was really exciting. She loves sitting up but I always have to hold her up. Hopefully this will catch on really fast so she can just sit on her own and be happy.

Bag Tag

I got tagged to post a picture of both my purse and all it's contents.
Here are the rules:1) Take a picture of your bag2) Show a picture of ALL the contents in your bag and name them. (NO CLEANING OUT FIRST) 3) "Bag Tag" 5 to 10 people 4) Make sure to leave a comment on their blog so they know THEY'VE BEEN TAGGED.

So I rarely use a purse anymore since Claire's always with me, I just use my diaper bag. I keep EVERYTHING in there. I always forget things so I just decided to stuff everything in there so I wouldn't have to worry about that. Here's what I have: Hand lotion, Baby lotion, Purell Hand Sanitizer, Claire's sunglasses, my sunglasses, Baby Tylenol, a thermometer, eye drops, my Ipod, Cortizone for head and face (Claire has Cradle Cap so she gets sores on her head and it makes her face dry, so that helps.. and no, cradle cap isn't a result of being dirty), balmex, 2 burp cloths, a bottle with water, formula, diapers, toys, lip gloss, chapstick, Q-tips, skittles (I'm addicted to candy), and I usually have my camera in there but I obviously couldn't take a picture of my camera. Well, that's it!

I tag Andrea, Lauren, Emily, Lindi, and Lisa

Long Time

It's been a long time since I've "blogged", I know. My computers (yes, plural) were both messed up big time so I had to take them into the computer store to get them fixed. I don't know when I'll get them back. But thanks to my lovely sister, Andrea, I have a computer to use until then. Maybe I'll just steal it. Heh heh. Anyway, nothing much has happened. I got a video of Claire laughing. She's been laughing like this for a couple of months now but every time I got the camera out she'd stop. I guess she was in the mood for an audience this time. Levi thinks he looks like he's molesting her in the video, so just to let everyone know, he's blowing air in her ear, she thought that was pretty funny. Also, we took a video of Claire with a cloth on her head. WE thought THAT was pretty funny. She'd see things out of the side of her eyes and so she'd turn her head to get away from the cloth but the cloth just followed her. That's why she's turning her head side to side. It looks like we're torturing her, but don't worry, she was fine with it.

"Hahaha ohhhh dad, stop it! Hahaha." (if you know me, you'll know how I'm saying this, if you don't know me, you'll think I'm weird.)
"There's an opening! Oh shoot. Oh there's one! Oh, great. This sucks, screw this..."

This is Claire after I feed her.

This is Claire after Levi feeds her. Haha! (No, we don't feed her crap, she just loves prunes, they look very similar to crap.)

It's so nice outside and I love it! Claire and I have been spending all day today and yesterday outside. I don't want it to ever be cold again. There's nothing I hate worse than winter... Except maybe molestors, rapists and liars. Anyway, yesterday my mom, Claire and I went to the gateway to walk and shop around. It was fun. I went to Urban Outfitters and saw so many things I wanted but don't have the money for. Then we went to Forever21 and I got two shirts (they look very similar but I like them so I don't care), a skirt and a light, yellow jacket. Not to be confused with a light yellow jacket. It's more of a bright yellow. Then we got smoothies, perfect for nice weather, and went home. We were there for maybe 2-3 hours. I wasn't paying attention.

But while we were there, guess what Claire does? POOPS. Of course, I hardly go anywhere because I'm frightened of her getting RSV. The one time I do go somewhere she poops EVERYWHERE. I should have taken a picture like Andrea did but I forgot. It got all over her clothes, it was disgusting. Luckily I carry pajamas around for her so I could put her in those. It smelled like, as Levi would say, "Old man poop."

Today, my mom and I (she's my only friend, ok? back off) went to RCWilley. Again, there were so many things I wanted there and don't have the money for. They had the cutest couch EVER and the tiniest video camera I've ever seen. If you know me at all, I love small things. I think they're cute. When I got home, I took Claire on a walk to the post office and of course she fell asleep on the way back. It was funny. That's all. I just wanted to talk about how nice the weather's been and what I've been up to. Good stuff.

Eyelashes and Bath time

This is Claire sticking her tongue out. It's her new thing, lately. It's also the cutest thing.

She's also been sucking (well, chewing) on her thumb lately too. I love it.

And finally, I just wanted to show off Claire's long eyelashes. Yes, I'm that mom... I brag about my child... You know you do it too.

Moving Day (not for us)

My parents just recently found a house on the Sandy/Draper border. It's really cute and they just started moving in yesterday. Since the movers were in and out they had to leave the doors all open and keep the heat off. So to keep Claire warm I had to put her in her warm teddy bear outfit. She fell asleep twice and both times it was so cute. My sister and I didn't do much helping because all of the movers were doing everything, but I got a picture of us anyway to celebrate us hanging out.

I love Babinski's! They have the cutest clothes, accessories, toys, cribs, and bedding for babies! It's a little pricey, mind you, but it's worth getting one or two outfits from there for each age. These are two outfits I got for 3-6 months. I don't want her to grow out of them ever!!!

My Hair!!!

My hair's falling out... Please tell me this is happening to other people who have just had their babies! It's everywhere and it's disgusting. I've read about this happening but I thought I got away with it. But then about a month ago it just started coming out! Ugh, I'm grossing myself out.

Very fun

So we went to this indoor pool in Lehi somewhere. That place isn't very cool but the indoor pool was awesome. Claire was just calm and loving it. I'd put her toes in her mouth and she'd start laughing hysterically. We went with Andrea's kid Blake and Becky's kid Max. Levi didn't want to swim so I felt like the single mom hanging out with the couples.
