A little update

So Cordy is now an official crawler. She is a little bit slower right now than her original "army crawl" but no doubt within a week she'll be zoomin' around. She is pulling up herself onto everything possible, so I have learned to stay within arms reach of her, to prevent most falls. And she's been pinching all of her food, which I love. Ha, I feel like a dork, the first time I saw her pinching her cheerios I started clapping and was so excited for her. I had to laugh after because I would have never seen myself 3 years ago getting so genuinely excited about something so small :)
And my favorite thing she does, that just melts both Aaron and I, is when we clap and say "yay" she smiles and starts clapping her two hands together. It is so adorable.

Two days ago we celebrated Aaron's 25th birthday! I made him breakfast in bed (his favorite, sausage and gravy biscuits)and when he came home for dinner we had talapia, smashed garlic sweet potatoes, and asparagus. It was delicious. And Aaron has been wanting these cupcakes for the last two years! I finally gave into the massive food coloring project, lol, but they were really fun to make, and they were yummy. Cordy even got to try them, and she loved them! (ha, but that is obvious, it is sugar.)

And overall, life is just awesome.

The fruits of my labors :)

So since Aaron and I have been married, somehow every room in our house is based on the color red. I love the color, but seriously I feel like my home revolves around my wedding cake..... So I decided to makeover our bedroom. I have been crafting all summer and these are some of the things I've done.

I just got rid of everything red, and we already had a brown comforter, so I didn't have to spend too much. I decided to use a pretty turquoise-blue and bright sage-green (the green is a lot prettier in person). And I went to town on making pillows, and the curtains are a work in progress, and a mirror and frames! I am so proud of myself for honestly making everything but the sheets, in our revamped room! It still has some work, but it feels so much more relaxing than a bold red.

So for Labor Day Aaron and I decided that it would be fun to go to El Paso for the weekend and surprise my family. It was so much fun! We had to tell my dad about it before hand, so they wouldn't make any big plans, but he told us where my mom and him would be walking when we got in, so we parked a little bit ahead of them and started walking towards them, and my mom freaked out. It was so cute, she was so happy to have us there. And even it was a long drive, the short trip was so worth it.
We were able to spend time with Kristen, Creighton, and Haiden too! Which we all loved. It was a weekend full of relaxation, games, and fun! I miss them all so much already.

Summer time

So this last Sunday, Aaron and I took Cordy to the Temple. She loved the water fountain, and all of the colorful flowers! And of course I had a blast taking pictures of her!!

She kept trying to eat the flowers and grass.

This is a typical Cordy face :)

We couldn't get her to look at us, her eyes were glued to the fountain.

Daddy and Cordy are such good little buddies.
