It's Been Awhile...

So, although we have been horrible at keeping our blog up to date, Maisey has failed to stop growing and changing on what seems like a daily basis. This week, December 9th to be exact, our baby girl turns six months old! I just can't believe it! Here are some of the special moments from the last few months. I hope you enjoy sharing them with us!

I believe that in our last post, we had just returned from Maisey's first trip which was a long weekend in San Diego with Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Dustin and cousins Quin and Gage. Of course while at Sea World, Grandpa had to buy Maisey a souvenir. Below is Maisey sportin' the Sea World hat that went with a complete outfit that Grandpa bought her.

With Kim workin' at church and life seeming to fly by faster than we can imagine, Maisey always gets taken along for the ride. This weekend was a little too much fun for her. She decided to completely crash. Fortunately for us, it was a perfect, cute photo op!

One of the things that I love the most about being a parent and watching Maisey grow up is when she gets to meet her new friends. Below is the first time that Maisey met Madelyn. Here, the papas got to show of their girls. I think that Josh is lovin' being a dad. Kim and Jen are going to be having a play date soon with our friends Pauline and Allison, so i'm sure that there will be some good friends pictures soon to come!


As parents, me and Kim have realized the importance of values. One of our values that we hold true to is a commitment to the Maroon and Gold. Here is Maisey taking in her first ASU football game. You can see a proud Grandpa in the background. It was so fun watching her that night. She literally stayed up nearly all but the last minute of the game. Now we just need to instill some more biblical values like Revelations 21:8, "Liars go to Tucson" :o)

One Friday, we were lucky to have Grandma Bev stop by to hang out a little and love on Maisey. Maisey decided to not be a booty butt that day and give Grandma some cuddles and smiles.

We also posted a little video clip of this below, but here is a pic of Maisey and Daddy after Maisey had her first taste of solid food. It is a lot more time consuming that I thought it would be. Since then she has had some sweet potatoes (as you can also see below) as well as bananas. This girl likes her food!


Since we first loved Maisey, one of the things that we have found adorable about her is that whenever she cried and went into diva mode, she would cry...cry...cry and then throw her head back and moo. Because of this we began to call her Maisey Moo. Well this Halloween, we originally were going to dress her up as a skunk because she, at times, can be the stinkiest baby (literally...i think that the girl has a gas leak), but once that costume fell through there was only one obvious chioce left. I present to you, Maisey Moosers!


And this one is just a cute pic that we threw in for good measure!

We also added videos of some of our favorite Maisey moments and milestones. We love our little girl and understand that you may not find her as adorable as we do, but we look forward to watching er grow even more (but not too quickly).
