Much, Much to Tell

So, much has occured since my last frivolous post. I told Matt a couple weeks ago that I would like a toy chest for Nicoley as I am tired of her toys being scattered around the house. So, last Saturday, Matt announced that he could probably build a toy chest with scrap wood that we had. This is the result.

This is pre hinges, but the top got hinges after the paint dried and it looks great! It is purple and matches Nicole's room and I now have a place to store her toys! I have an amazingly handy husband.

Thursday of last week the In n Out in Orem opened. Matt is a huge fan of this burger place, so we had to go on opening day to get burgers. The line was out the door and about a 30 minute wait. Getting a seat seemed more difficult than waiting in line, but we survived and got our food and a seat. It was delicious. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of batteries and I only got this one picture of Matt, but I think you can see the excitement.

Saturday, I went to see New Moon with my sisters. It was definitely better than the first Twilight movie. I was on team Jacob before and my place is more solidified. Yes, I know how it ends, but I've got alternate endings in my head that do not involve a weirdly named baby.

Then, on Saturday afternoon, Sarah had her bridal shower. My camera was still batterless, so you will have to visit Marie's blog for pictures. Sarah had a pretty good turn out and the food was really good. Mom out did herself with this one, it was great. I think that Sarah had a good time.

Sunday Matt was sick so we stayed home and lounged. I'm tired of sicknesses going around. It should just stop.

This week is Thanksgiving, so I am excited to have extra time with Matt and my family.

Things that Bug Me

Fevers but no teeth

People who tail while driving

Commercials (solution, DVR)

Thanka, Storya, and Longamonies (originally spelled "testa")

Long lines

People who price match (people, not companies)

Raking leaves (I haven't done it yet, but the leaves keep staring at me)

Cold weather (now I can't walk outside with Nicole... not that I did it much before, but it was nice to have the option)

Nicoley waking up at 3am.

People who say "aks" instead of "ask", "flustrated" instead of "frustrated"

People who get Wilford Woodruff and Woodrow Wilson confused

In and Out not yet being open in Orem

The color Orange; it isn't doing anyone any favors

People who freak out over small things (unless they are pregnant, then they have an excuse)

Kids who suck on everything (toys, non toy objects, hair, hands, curtains, blankets, ect...)

People who bring their sick kids to public places (church, school, grocery store, ect.)

People who drive through the parking lots and disregard the lanes

I'm sure that a lot of other things bother me, but this is all I could think of right now. I would have written a "thankful" list, but those are way more boring. When my friends write those lists on their blog, I just skim right over. But, when I read about the things that bug my friends, then I can relate. So, if you want to know what I am thankful for, just think of the opposite of what is on this list.

7 Months!

Nicole is now 7 months old! I can't believe how big she is getting. It is weird to think of how old she is. Last year this time I was just complaining about being pregnant. Time flies by very quickly.
I don't have any new stats for Nicole because she doesn't go to the doctor again until she is 9 months. But, she is about 19 pounds and getting close to passing up her 1.5 year old cousin Keira.

Nicole's most favorite thing in the world (other than me) is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She can be super sad and crying and then hear Mickey's voice and she perks right up and smiles and laughs. She is one weird little baby. Here is a pic of her enthralled by her show.

For Halloween this year, Nicole was a little pumpkin. We stayed home this year and passed out candy because Nicole is a little too young to do trick or treating and we are way to old to do it. But, I dressed her up in her costume anyway just to take some pictures.

She did go trunk or treating with her cousins the day before Halloween. I wasn't there, but it was reported that she was just fascinated by all the kids in their costumes. I think that Nicole just looks adorable as a little pumpkin.

Nicole's new accomplishments include rolling all around and saying "Momma." I set Nicole on the ground the other day with cartoons on so that I could take a shower. I never leave her on the bed alone anymore because she is just too rolly. I came out of the shower to find her gone. I couldn't see her anywhere; it scared me very much. I found her playing under our bed. I guess she had seen something she wanted under there and rolled under to play with it. Little stinker!

Nicole loves dogs. She gets along really well with my parents labrador; she loves to grab her nose. We went to a friend's house the other day and they had a spaniel dog. Nicole was very interested in the dog and squealed with delight every time he came near. But, she cried when he started barking and didn't like the dog as much after that.

She is such a delight and I love seeing her get so big and look more like a little girl and less like a baby.
