Becky's bday.

When we saw that our good friend was turning 30, my friend Carrie and I decided that a party was needed!
I have been dying to use this personalized balloon website I found- this seemed like the perfect opportunity!
We started the morning with just the ladies- mani & pedi
(missing several gorgeous faces from the group pic- they darted before we could take one!)
Then, later that evening, we headed downtown with our man squeezes for a yummy dinner at Iron Cactus and some laughs at Ad-Libs! 
(my hot date ;) )
Birthday girl with her beau!
Carrie's very talented sister made the cake for Becky! It was amazing!
How many people does it take to cut & serve a cake?
the ladies: (an amazing group may I add! love them)
& men:
(Becky, me, Carrie)
I got pulled on stage to make sound effects... interesting...
Love my girl Becky and hope she had a wonderful 30th birthday! 

big thanks to Carrie & her sister, Debbi
as well as Ad Libs & Iron Cactus
thanks for an amazing evening!

There's nothing hotter than your husband competing in a triathlon- and so you can believe I am in full support of brock's new obsession!
Brock left super early to get there before the race- Hads and I left about 6:30 which means I had to wake her up very early so she could cheer on her dad!
First was the swimming- 350meters
Hads was fascinated by all the swimmers
Then the biking... I don't have a picture because it was just too far from me for the iphone- but hads did catch a nice snooze during brock's 12 mile bike ride-
Then he was off for the last leg- a 5k! 
I am so proud of brock for finishing his first sprint tri- and he has already signed up for more!
Hads was super proud as well :)

6 months.

hadley needs to stop getting so big!
I can't believe she is already celebrating her half birthday

length:   28in   99%
weight:   17.5lb   79%
head:   17in   78% 

(at the dr for her 6mo appt)

This girl has changed so much, so quickly. Once she decides she is going to do something- she goes all out! She decided pretty quickly that rolling around was a great way to go places, but now she is rocking on her hands and knees and scooting around by semi crawling! (not the most graceful crawl but she gets where she is going and fast!)
this has led to some very red/scratched knees :( oh well, as my dad always said, 'bite it off!' 
she can sit for moments by herself without support- but as soon as she starts leaning to one side only about half of the time can she get herself back up straight.
hads has found her voice, tongue, and lips. It's hilarious watching her figure them out.
she has always been vocal-now there are consonants though! da-da-da-da-da is a favorite of hers...and her daddy's ;)
Bumble loves water. Bath, pool, faucet, doesn't matter- she wants to splash! Then...she's wiped out.
Can't forget her first pedicure- matching mama's of course ;)
Naps aren't any better- hence why when I decided to paint my house (yes, it's new so it was just painted...but I wanted grey and that wasn't an option at the time of building) I had to strap her to my chest during nap time and just paint with a weight attached to me until my mom came to get her. Talk about a work out!
but she is such an awesome night-time sleeper, I can't complain. 8am-7pm solid.
(look at that booty up in the air!)
There are definitely teeth in her near near future- she has had the runny nose, slobber, and constant chewing for about a week and a half now... come on teeth! 
She has a bit of stranger danger- and definitely a desire to have me in her sight- constantly! If I get out of her sight at home- SCREAMS & TEARS. I come back... instant SMILES.
This child's obsession with tv is still there.. she will do whatever need be to see it
We went to Waco again to visit my MeeMaw- hadley's great grandma. So awesome that my MeeMaw gets to know hadley. love. it.

she constantly smiles
and laughs
and brightens our day
happy 1/2 birthday bumble!


Hadley's first 4th of July was a hit! We started the day with a breakfast put on by our ward. I must say- its always nerve racking going to a new ward, but we got SUPER lucky with ours. Love them. 
 There are lots of little babies too- so lots of friends for my bumble! 
 Then, once night came, we went back to the park/parking lot to join some friends again to watch the fireworks. 
(maybe one day I will get a real camera and everyone wont look like zombies and orange in half of my pictures :/)
I was hesitant to go because it was way past Hadley's bedtime, but surprisingly she was her normal happy self! 
She LOVED the fireworks and just stared at them the entire time. 
 Happy 4th!
