Swining at the Park

Friday, February 29, 2008

We found out that Melissa loves the swings at the park. Here are some pictures of her at the park and a video.

Play Date

I took Melissa over for a play date, OK it was more for me. My friend Stephanie and I worked together before I stayed home with Melissa. Her daughter is 19 months old. Melissa wasn't to happy with Haven taking away toys from her. She cried almost the whole time we where there. Melissa is use to playing by herself. I guess I need to get her around other kids.

I've been Tagged!

Okay I have been "Tagged" by that means I have to post 7 Random things about myself.

1) I started wearing glasses when I was six years old! Yes, I had the big coke bottle glasses! I really want to have eye surgery. I hate getting up in the middle of the night looking for my glasses.

2) I started playing tennis in 7th grade and stopped playing in the 11th grade. I love tennis and want to start taking it up again. I bet I would have to start all over!

3) My first real job besides babysitting was working at Dairy Queen age 16. I was so good at making Chocolate Dipped cones that my boss sent me to a contest. I came in third!

4) I bought my first car buy saving my Dairy Queen checks. OK I only saved $1,000 and my grandparents helped with the rest of the down payment. I kept my 1993 ford Mustang till August 2007.

5) Speaking of my 2 door Ford Mustang, I packed it up on October 19, 1997 and moved to Dallas. I was 19 at the time. I really didn’t know what I was doing. My Great Aunt let me rent a room from her. I lived with her for four years. I finally moved out and got my own Apartment and then six months later I was getting married. I have only lived by myself for 6 months.

6) When I worked for Southwest Airlines I was at a party and a famous person was there. She was picking people to dance with her. She pulled me out of the crowd and I had to dance in front of my co-workers. She taught me the "Cuchi-Cuchi" she also appeared on "The Love Boat". Do you know whom I’m talking about? It’s Charo! I have a picture of me dancing with her, but I have it packed some place. I will have to find it and scan it and posted it on the blog.

7) My sweet husband proposed to me on top of Heavenly Mountain at Lake Tahoe.

So now I need to TAG Lena, Margarita, Tina

Like the new look?

Thanks to the super fun people over at for giving our blog a makeover!

I can pull myself up!

Check out the video of me pulling myself up! I can also hold onto the couch and walk from one end to the other. I think it's fun pulling up, I think I'm a big girl!

Can you see my tooth?

I finally let mommy take a picture of my tooth, Can you see it?

I'm cool!

Check out my new sun glasses! Mommy and Daddy bought them at Target. I can keep my eyes protected from the sun when we go to the park for walks.

8 Months old!

Sunday, February 17, 2008

Melissa turned 8 months old today! She has been very busy this last month. Let see she got her first tooth; can go from her tummy to sitting up on her own. We have also noticed she is trying to pull her self up. Melissa doesn’t want to crawl on her hands and knees, but still crawling around on her elbows and tummy. Melissa doesn’t miss a beat; she is so alert and as I say nosey!
Happy 8 months Melissa! We look forward to seeing what you accomplish this month.
