I sure love this girl!
she is pretty much the best friend a person could have!!!
Happy Birthday Liv!
And Quattro was in his crib tonight, singing himself to sleep with: "Happy Birfday to Div-i-uh.... Happy BIRFday to Div-I-UH!"
Last night we got a great group of people together at my house for dinner! Thanks for coming to town Stephanie and Rob!
Rob returned yesterday evening from a back packing trip down in Southern Utah to the Paria Canyon. He left Tuesday afternoon so we've been missing daddy for what felt like a really long time!
Why am I so boring lately? I have nothing to blog about...
what's happened lately....
Quattro climbed out his crib for the first time ever on Tuesday - AHHH! He scared the crap out of me - I had put him to bed and was watching a show and I hear this, "clunk clunk".... and so I went in the hallway to investigate and sure enough Robby OPENS his door.... ahhh! He looked pretty scared like, "what did I just do?" And the first thing he said was, "My want my daddy!!!" (Rob wasn't home that night) So I just held him for a few minutes then was putting him back in his crib (I didn't really want to react to his getting out of the crib, didn't want to make a big deal out of it, give it too much attention, you know?) and he says, "Mommy, me got down!" I just said, "I know you did but it's bed time so we need to lay down and stay in our crib, huh?" He said, "Hus." (Yes)
The next day he demonstrated how he did it, he was pulling himself up onto his dresser which was next to his crib... so I just pushed the crib farther away from the dresser and he hasn't done it again since. But I'm sure he'll figure out how to do it without the dresser some time soon but ugh I hope not! I just am not ready for him to be in a toddler bed or to have the "freedom" to get in and out on his own! I've looked into those crib tent things but they are like $60 and I don't have the money for that right now. But if it comes down to giving up naptime or shelling out $60 I might just have to shell out the money!!
So, for those dying to see us in another parade here's your chance!! (ha ha)
Saturday was the Orem Summerfest and we walked in the parade with a bunch of other APX people!
Rob wanted to play football this morning so I was planning on going to the gym.... but no one else showed up to play ball.... so he suggested we go hike the Y.... huh?? Ahhh, you guys, what are we becoming? Camping, and now this? Hiking.... the Y?? We've been talking about it for a while and since we were both ready for some physical activity we figured it was a good time.
Oh yeah, and we learned a good lesson - NEVER trust MY memory... we all know it's faulty but sometimes we don't really think about that. From my one former experience in hiking the Y I was picturing this wide, paved path that we'd be able to push the stroller up.... no no no no. So Rob was a champ and decided he'd just carry Robby.... so there were times Robby would walk, ride on daddy's shoulders, and I carried him for about 5 minutes total.... but WE DID IT!
So I've mentioned before that I love Chelsie Hightower... She was one of my favorite's on SYTYCD and then she was one of the pro's this season on Dancing With The Stars so that was fun watching her dance again....
She's from Orem so it's not too big a shock that I've seen her at Gold's Gym here a few times but it's always so exciting! I've never said anything to her - I just feel like that'd be annoying for someone to come up to you while you're trying to work out and be a normal person... and it's just fun for me to see her anyway!
She was there today and Liv talked me into trying to get a sneak picture of her. I kind of feel like a stalker but oh well.... she was on the stair stepper and we were about to do our cardio so I started mine out by going on the stair stepper next to her! So this is the pic Liv got with her phone.... ahhhh how embarrassing!
