Our Healthy gIrL

Aniston is nice and healthy, that makes me so HAPPY!! I took her to the doctor for her 18 month (she's actually almost 21 months) check up, and she passed with flying colors... here are the details:
-weight 28 pounds (84th percentile)
-height 34.5 inches (93rd percentile) makes her daddy proud!!
-2 shots that made her "leg owee" and she has a fever too!
-the crib MUST go down. The pediatrician drilled this one into me, he probably talked to me about it for 5 minutes STRAIGHT!! I got the point and I'll have the crib down either today or Saturday. Aniston has been singing the monkeys on the bed song a lot lately, so she knows what NOT to do on the bed (yeah right!!)
-Ok so I'm going to brag about my Princess for a second so if you want to skip this one you can...
The doctor told me just from the little bit that he spent with her, he would compare Aniston to a 2 1/2 year old because of how well she is talking and verbalizing things. Way to go baby girl(it was worth loosing many brain cells while I was pregnant with her).
I'm so happy Aniston is healthy. I worry about her, and pray that she will always be healthy. It's reassuring to go in and have the doctor say "way to go, she's nice and healthy". I love her so much and I am so thankful for the opportunity to worry over her and to make sure she is safe, healthy and happy.

Megan and I @ Thursday's game

I have to admit that even though I have lived in Salt Lake most of my life, I had NEVER been to a Jazz game. I was a huge fan back in the Stockton/Malone era, but had a slight falling out. Thanks to the BIGGEST Jazz fan I know, I was able to go to both games last weekend. Thanks Megan!! I've never had so much fun at a sporting event in my entire life! Thursday just Megan and I went and then Saturday Chris, Aniston, Megan and I got to go. We all had a BLAST, even Aniston got into it. She did have issues with it being "loud" and she had to go for a little walk to get the wiggle bug tamed. I hope we can keep going, I've missed out!

Aniston was to into the game to "cheese" for the camera

My cute sister and her hubby called and invited Aniston and I hiking for Family Night. We met them at a trail and started up and I mean up. Aniston still doesn't walk extremely well, and when there is dirt and rocks it is a challenge. She not only trips and nearly falls, but she LOVES to play with rocks and dirt so she is always stopping for one reason or another. Oh and did I mention that my sister was there...Aunt Shelbi has to give Aniston her full attention. So, if Aniston doesn't want to walk/hike, she'll only let Aunt Shelbi carry her and if anyone else tries she lets the whole world know she's TICKED!! Needless to say, Aniston makes for really good bear repellent with her loud belting screams and shrills. We hiked for about an hour, and it was a fun and good activity to get out and enjoy the beautiful mountains. My sister and I got a great workout carrying Aniston (I made her let me carry her so my sister wouldn't pass out), and Scott lost some of his hearing trying to give Shelbi and I a break. We really did have a good time and Ansiton was content to be around Shelbi and to play and yell at Olive.

Shelbi, Ansiton and Olive enjoying the pretty mountains.

Ansiton wasn't interested it staying by us, so she has the death wrap so she wouldn't jump off the side of the mountain.

I told my sister and her hubby they should use this picture in their Christmas card...hahaha

Easter and such

Easter was a bit different this year...Chris went on a bike trip with his work and Aniston and I went to Orderville with my family. We all had a great time, and Easter was awesome!! Aniston loved the church bag with toys and candy(I didn't bring a basket for the Easter Bunny to fill, so he improvised). She also had a blast finding Easter eggs. She was picking up the eggs and slamming them in her Easter bag like a mad woman!!
Things are kind of crazy right now with the end of the semester. Chris and I just finished research papers, and we're preparing for the finals. I'm lucky I only have one and it's open book. Poor Chris has 3 or 4...bummer dude. Aniston is sleeping in her big girl bed again. Last time she did was the post I did. Since then I have been nervous cuz that night she woke up choking on some spit up and then was sick for 3 days after that...must have been the bed right?!haha So today I pulled it down and she took her nap on it. She went right to sleep, then called for me to come get her when she woke up! She honestly is the best girl! She's obsessed with counting and can count to 20 with help. She counts EVERYTHING!! She is getting better with putting words together, and says more and more words every day. She also repeats things like "oh cap"(oh crap)and whatever else she feels like. She sings "I la temple" and Twinkle Twinkle. She says her ABC's but doesn't have all the letters down yet, but it's cute to hear her version. She says little prayers lately, she'll fold her arms and put her head down and mumble her little gibberish. It cracks me up!! She is a doll and I can't get enough. She's also been giving the best squeezes, she wraps her arm around both Chris and I and says "owwww" TO CUTE!!

Happy Easter!! Aniston LOVES my sister!! The whole time we were in Orderville all she wanted to do was hang with Shelbi.

Aniston loves swings, so we went to the Elementary in Orderville and played on the swings and playground.

Aniston was so excited to find a chair her size... she tought it was the coolest thing!! The Orderville house is full of fun stuff!

We colored eggs late Saturday night and although Aniston was totally exhausted, she got to color a few.

Chris had a pretty good time biking, but was bummed about all the rain. He was just glad to get out with one of his good friends from St. George and play on the bikes. This in one of many bikes that he wants...maybe one day!!

Toga Fashion Show
Aniston put on a little fashion show and even included a turn at the end of the runway. This is the new look after she gets dry after a bath. She walks around all stiff so the towel won't fall off, and she thinks it's the coolest thing ever!!

Aniston and I did a little crafting today. We printed a picture of Mickey and Minnie for Aniston to color, and I did a few things for her bedroom. Aniston got to color with MARKERS!! She loved it and was pretty good about not getting them anywhere but on the paper. Thank goodness for the work supplies I've collected over the years, they came in pretty handy!!

my lucky little princess

I just love good deals and kind people!! A friend from work called me the other day and offered a kitchen and a new mattress to me and I just couldn't pass them up! The mattress...brand new. The kitchen... well taken care of!! So we picked them up and brought them home and my little princess has been in heaven since. Might I add that we also scored a little piano that is an extra special treat, and not to annoying. Aniston slept on her big girl mattress last week, and she was LOVIN' life! She went right to sleep after we read books! She plays with the kitchen every day and makes some killer soup with plastic cookies, lettuce, mustard, etc. She's figured out the piano, and plays some pretty radical tunes while she shakes her booty!
I've been workin' on some new stuff for Aniston's room, and I am so excited to put it all together. Chris just got a new project added to his list... a bed frame for Aniston. He's so awesome when it comes to building stuff, so I can't just go out a buy stuff... it won't compare!

Yay her very own kitchen!! PLEASE notice she actually has a headband on her head...gasp!! She left it on the whole time too...AMAZING!!

Check her out, she's in her very own big girl bed!!
