wisdom teeth.

After years of having a TERRIBLE dentist... I finally found one that is good! My previous dentist kept saying, "let's wait for your wisdom teeth to break surface and then go get them". Well, years later and now my 2x braces teeth have started to shift, my new dentist informed me that they are 'bone impacted' and slightly horizontal (pushing on my back molars causing my teeth to shift) and won't ever break skin. So, Friday, my Mom took off work and took me to the oral surgeon to have the surgery-- after, I came back to her house and spent the night. 
(right after, at Mom's- looking...puffy hah!)

This left Brock in charge of Hadley Friday & Saturday. My sweet sis-in-law, Britta, offered to watch Hads Friday until Brock got off of work. She had 3 kids under 3 at her house- but from the pictures she sent me, it looks like Crew was a big helper and is ready for another sibling ;)
On Saturday- Brock sent me these:
And managed to get her out of the house looking decent! Good job babe!
I'm still recovering... 
(ignore the no make up, cheeks that could rival Hadley's and lips that could rival Angelina's!)
But I am so thankful for my Mom, Brock, and Britta for all of their help!
Thank you!

connie & case visit.

I always love when my aunt and cousin come to visit! They come pretty often (they live in Temple) and we always have too much fun. Brock was nice enough to watch hads so I could spend the day/evening with them! Gotta love some Mi Cocina for dinner and Cheesecake factory for dessert!
 (Isn't my mom gorgeous?!)
Until next time!

4 months.

This cutie is 4 months old today!
stats:
length:   26in   98%
weight:   15lbs   88%
head:   16.5in   82%

big cheeks & thighs= baby fat= necessary for brain development= so lovable to kiss and squeeze= ADORABLE

We started the month (and are ending the month) kind of rough. She must have her my family's allergies! The little sickness she had at the beginning though, we still don't know what it was. She had a fever for 2 days and slept constantly- If she was awake, she would scream. Then by the third day she would still scream if she was awake (which is completely unlike Hads, she is rarely fussy) and then wouldn't sleep at night...there was lots of cuddling going on in the Andrus House...
Once she was back to her happy self, we have experienced lots of milestones this month!
Anything- and EVERYTHING must go in her mouth. She is constantly licking, sucking, chewing, or slobbering on something- my hair, her shirt, her bunny, a toy- doesn't matter.
She has really found her voice and will carry on conversations mainly with herself...
She has mastered tummy time...
Which has led to 'sitting' in her bumbo (typically slouched forward)...
Which led to her jumperoo (again, slouched- but there are toys to slobber on, so she is all about it!)...
and rolling over!!
She showed me this new skill over, and over, and over again one day...and has refused to do it since. Little stinker.
She got her first soccer ball- Brock and I are having a sports battle and hads can't even sit up yet. He wants golf- I want anything BUT golf. I'm sorry, but if I have another golfer in this house...I. Will. Lose. It.
Hadley LOVES her morning cartoon-Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It is a sure way to get a smile, and for me to eat some breakfast.
As for sleep... She sleeps at night (in her bed) from 10-5/6 pretty consistently. Then Brock (He sleeps in the guest room with her, If I were to sleep in the same room as hads-every little noise would wake me up) will either give her a binki, or give in and snuggle with her until 8... Drives me crazy, but it is pretty adorable.
Now nap time is another story. Hadley takes 3, 2 hour naps a day... and on me. She refuses to sleep anywhere but on me for nap time. I have tried EVERYTHING. Put her down awake, groggy, dead asleep-I even did cry it out for 2 days (going in and checking on her/soothing her every 5-20 minutes)...She screamed for all 3 naps... the full 2 hours. She was completely hoarse the next day. We will have moments where I can set her down if she is DEAD asleep for 20-30minutes..
But you can typically find me right here during naps.... I'll try again once she is over this little congestion she has developed since her shots. If you think you have the touch, please feel free to come over for a day of naps and try! I am open to any suggestions/help with this! :)
Speaking of shots:
So sad- but nothing her bunny can't fix.
I sure do love this girl and our little family.
I still can't believe how much she has changed in just 4 short months. We adore her little personality and love watching it, and her, grow!

kam's visit.

I got super lucky when I moved to San Antonio for college- I met my best friend Kamila! She just happened to be chosen as my roommate and we have been close ever since. Miss the days of rooming together, but we have come a long way since then! Kam had to come to Dallas for work on Friday and her boss let her stay the weekend to see me! Due to our conflicting and hectic schedules, I hadn't seen her since the summer before I was engaged! 
Brock was nice enough to watch Hadley all day Saturday so I could take a "girl's day". (maybe it was because he took off work all day Friday to play golf and go to the rangers game? ;) )

We went to our favorite place- San Antonio and Dallas, Kona Grill is always a must!  Gorgeous weather, patio, flat bread pizzas, sushi, and (virgin) mojitos- doesn't get better.
Then it was off to the Rangers game! Kam didn't grow up here (moved from Poland in high school) so MLB is totally new to her! I taught her the real reason to go to a baseball game: hot dogs, nachos, kettlecorn, lemon chills, chips, and garlic fries!
So glad I got to see Kam! Hopefully it wont be so long until the next trip!
