My Little Pumpkin

Pretty much since the day she was born, I have called Mylin "pumpkin". I also have a few other nicknames I call her, but pumpkin is one of the top. Tim makes fun of me and will call her squash, but I think Pumpkin is cute!

Anyways, I saw these pajamas and I had to get them. They say "Mommy's Little Pumpkin". And they were on sale for like 4$ so that makes them even better!

Love it!

Tim's job has some perks. One being that he gets free tickets to sports games every now and then. We have been to a Diamondbacks and a Suns game (with awesome seats!) and yesterday we got free tickets to the opening game of the Lakers. (Row 11!) We were pretty excited. We aren't huge Lakers fans, but still!
This is like the only purple outfit Mylin has and since we were going to a Lakers game...when in Rome, I guess!
She did pretty dang good, even though it was WAYY past her bedtime!

Since it was opening game, it was kinda crazy. They were giving out free shirts. They said Mylin needed one and that she would grow into it. Someday!

They had the championship ring ceremony thing with the trophy and everyone was going crazy. Below is Fisher and Kobe hugging like they haven't seen each other in years, even though they probably saw each other in the locker room like 15 minutes prior! LA really is Kobe's city.

Here they were revealing the championship banner. (?) And some shots of the game. It was a great game. Super close and exciting.

But let's be honest. I was looking for celebrities! I was very distracted during the game, trying to spot famous people! It was quite fun!
Of course, Jack Nicholson. He's like a given at a Laker's game.

Then I saw this guy. I knew it was him. (Yes, I had my long lens on my camera like a stalker. Whatever!) I was SO excited about seeing him!

Then I saw this guy. I don't know who he is, but he has to famous for three reasons.
1. He was sitting like right next to Leo on the front row.
2. He was wearing ridiculously amounts of bling.
3. He was hugged by......

JUSTIN BIEBER!!! Haha I'm not even going to tell you how excited I was to see Justin Bieber! It was embarrassing how excited I was. I spotted him from the back (I don't know how I did. I have never seen him from the back. Maybe it was his swagger!)
But I thought...hmm that looks it? a ball boy? it is definitely Justin Bieber!

Yay for free tickets! I will gladly go to another Laker's game anytime!

Halloween Party

We were invited to a little Halloween party last week. I bought these wings a few weeks ago for a dollar and I wanted her to wear them. She has another Halloween costume for Halloween. I couldn't make up my mind, so she has two costumes! So here is the little fairy.

I woke her up early from her nap and that is never a good idea. She cried almost the whole time unless I was holding her. Here she is with her friend! Doesn't Mylin look happy?

Here she is with most of the kids there. Mylin was all too happy to be taking pictures.

Mylin - 7 Month Update

Seven months.
I know Mylin has changed a lot this month, but my mind is blank right now! She has started refusing things and pushing things away. She doesn't have any teeth yet, but she has been so cranky from teething I'm sure they'll be coming in soon.
She likes to take things from me and laugh about it. She wasn't feeling really well for a few days so I took her to the doctor and she weighed 16lbs 1 oz. Not a huge jump from her 6 month appointment where she weighed 15 lbs 15 oz, but she's still getting bigger everyday. She's a total mama's girl, which I love!

Sick of getting her picture taken!

I figured out how to do this! I've been wanting to do a collage thing of the different faces she makes, and here one is! are lots of pictures of Mylin's face! She normally opens her mouth, but she was not wanting to make very many different faces at the time.

This week has been quite uneventful. Mylin wasn't feeling awesome, so we have just chilled at home. We were going to go on a date tonight. Some friends offered to watch Mylin for us because we haven't gone out with just the two of us since Mylin was born. So I got it all lined up. Then Tim said, "Why don't we just go out to eat and bring Mylin with us?" Ha! Kinda defeats the purpose of going on a date without her! So we'll probably go out on a date tonight...with Mylin! are just a few random pictures I had on my camera. We had been looking for a high chair forever and I couldn't find one I liked that was a decent price. My friend knew I was looking for one and saw this one at a yard sale and called me. 35$! I was pretty excited.
Mylin can't really wave yet. But she is in this pic! (Yes, she is messy. We have a hard time feeding! She likes to grab the spoon and then wipe food all over her face. We're working on it!)
Sometimes Mylin really doesn't want to take a nap, even though she is so exhausted. She cries and pulls down her bumper and stares at the door. Funny/sad/cute all rolled into one!

Mylin was helping me in the kitchen. Yesterday was like the first time she has worn shoes. Her feet are really fat! I bought 2 SUPER cute pairs of newborn shoes and her feet never fit. They were too fat! But she can fit in these ones. With enough squeezing.

Crawling Pumpkins

The other day I was driving home and I saw this awesome pumpkin patch with HUGE pumpkins so we decided to go and take some pictures of Mylin with the pumpkins. (Sorry this blog is always all about Mylin! She's just the highlight of our lives!)
The lighting isn't the best on these pictures...too much shadow. But they still turned out pretty cute.

Don't worry...Tim was standing next to Mylin during this picture!

Like I said in the last post, Mylin has been crawling for almost a month now. I took this little video on my phone and I hope it works. I've never done a video before, so I guess we will see.

6 Months

Half a year....I cannot believe she is already 6 months! (And a week and a half. I'm slow getting this one done.)
She is getting so big.
Since her 5 month post she has:
Started eating in a high chair. (Finally! It took us forever to get a high chair.)
Started eating more veggies and fruits. (Loves everything except Banana Mango. Won't eat it.)
Started reaching for me!
And her biggest accomplishment? She started crawling! She has been crawling for about 3 weeks now and she is all over the place. She's a pretty fast little thing!
For her 6 month appointment her stats were:
Weight: 15 lbs 15 oz (50%)
Height: 26 1/2 (75%)
Head: 16 3/4 (50%)

These pictures are getting harder and harder to take! I took about a million where she was grabbing the sign and trying to eat it. You don't even want to know what kind of embarrassing things I do to get her to smile and not eat the sign for the picture.

I wanted to do a little photo shoot thing for her 6 month. She just woke up from a nap and was kinda out of it, so smiles were hard to come by. But I still think they turned out pretty cute!
