3 years and 1 baby later... I still fit into my wedding dress. Happy Anniversary Shaun! I love you!!! So... there is a story about this. My mom really wanted my sisters to try on my mom's dress, my older sister's dress, and my dress. So we had a fun fashion show with the girls, and then I wondered if I could still fit into it! It was a great self-esteem booster to know that I can! Maybe I should try it on more often!!! This is what girls do for fun when there are NO boys around!!! :)
We are seriously house hunting right now. We have until October 1st to close on a house so we can take advantage of some first-time home buyer programs. I am pretty stressed, especially with Shaun being in Seattle and I am leaving in a few days for a whole week!!!!!!!! Wish us luck!!!

I remember the days when my baby would just lay there...
...and look so cute... and do whatever I made her do...
... NOW my baby, or actually now a toddler, is quite the DIVA...
...with an ATTITUDE...
...and the SWEETEST spirit and personality any little girl could have.
Maisey is really developing into her own person! She LOVES purses, shoes, shopping, and eating. (OK, maybe she's not her own person, she's ME!) She totally knows what she wants and is a very determined individual. I love her more than I did 1 year ago, which I didn't think was possible. She is such a blessing in our little famliy.
Our seats were just slightly to the right of home plate and about 30 rows from the field! They were AWESOME!

On Saturday afternoon, we went boating. This was Maisey's first time on a boat. I was even brave enough to put her on a tube with me for her first tube ride. She didn't like when it got bumpy, so we stopped pretty quickly, but she did enjoy riding on the boat which put her to sleep! Her life jacket was a bit snug, so eventually we had to undo the top strap! But we had a great afternoon!
Mais and Mommy on the tube!
The Fam again!
Mais and Mommy again!
" Thanks Grandpa, for my first boat trip!"
Happy Birthday Grandpa! You look exhausted!
Mais opened a few gifts from the fam! Shaun's family gave her lots of stuffed animals and a book! Mommy and Daddy gave her a baby Elmo that she LOVES, and some other fun Elmo things! She is totally into Elmo right now!
On Sunday, she enjoyed everyone's attention as she swung!
On our way home Sunday evening, I dropped Shaun off at the Portland airport so he could fly to Seattle! It broke my heart to hear my little baby crying for her daddy after he left for the 6th week in a row. She really misses him and loves him so much!
My birthday is on Wednesday, so I am going to drive up to Seattle to spend a couple of days with Shaun! I am really looking forward to relaxing, shopping, eating, and sleeping! My mom is going to keep Mais for me! :) Thanks Mom!!!
Happy Birthday to anyone else who has a birthday in August!
