6 Month Height & Weight

Yesterday Scout had her 6 month appointment. Just thought I'd post her stats. Probably only new moms are concerned with these things. She weighs 17 pounds and is 28 inches long. Sort of tall and skinny, except not skinny. Have you seen this girl's rolls? Well she's got 'em. Riley always teases her about her belly hanging over her diaper and Tripp calls her "chub". There's just something about can't resist commenting on her chubbiness.

This past week I went to a Quickbooks Training in Hereford. That's a whole other story, but we won't go there right now. Grams came on Wednesday night so that she would be here to babysit Scout on Thursday. I was gone from 7 until about 6:30 that evening. It was pretty hard on me and I think Scout missed me when she first woke up. Riley got home before I did and they were all just having a big time when I arrived. I mean wouldn't it be great to have everybody wrapped around your little finger.

On Friday I had to go back, so Sarah B and her kiddos babysat. By the way, Hope was in Ft. Worth that is why she didn't babysit. Scout was awake and I told her bye. I thought she might cry, but didn't. Even though you kind of want them to cry, it is a relief when they don't. I think she had a great time at Sarah's. Slade even sent his Bumbo seat home with Scout. Wasn't that sweet?

Happy 1/2 Birthday Scout!!

Ok, so yesterday Scout was 1/2 year old. I absolutely cannot believe how quickly the time has passed. Jess told me it was going to be this way, but seriously.... Now that we've got the rolling over thing down pretty well we are focusing on crawling. Maybe I should say her Daddy has started trying to teach her. In this video you'll notice how that all she wants to do is roll over. She probably thinks we're crazy since we used to try to get her to roll over and now we want her to stay on her tummy and crawl.

This picture is for Gramps. Riley and Scout figuring......she loves that calculator.

Hanging out with the Templeton Family!!

Last Saturday morning Scout and I visited the Templeton Family. It was fun to see Sutton for the first time. He is about 2 months younger than Scout, but just as big. He doesn't look like a chunk, but is pretty heavy. He was happy and soooo cute. I'm thinking he and Scout will have a good time together pretty soon.

I'm Thankful for.....

32 foot gooseneck trailers, Riley's big muscles, Tori's advice (or bossiness), Grandma-Ma's punkin' pie.......This is what Bob and Tam were saying on Thanksgiving Day!!

Riley, Scout, and I went down last Wednesday and started helping move all the big stuff. Sean, Missy, their girls, and Grandma-Ma showed up to help out. Sean pretty much saved my life. I'm strong (ha-ha), but can't exactly lift a piano above my head.

We got alot done and had fun doing it. Maybe we worked off some of that pie. Speaking of pie.... G-Ma made the traditional dinner (Riley would absolutely die if he didn't have turkey and dressing) and brought to the new house. It was great!!

Well....once again I am like forever behind. I guess I'll be that way for a little while, so just deal with it!! ---lol

On November 19th we attended Riley's Aunt Cindy's 50th bash. It was very tasteful....nicely done by Jaimi and Grandma-Ma. Clovis has a really nice Civic Center, at which Jaimi is the event planner person. We had a delicious dinner, lots of laughs (at her gag gifts), and enjoyed family.
