This photos is from a few days ago when my sis in law brought her cutie kids over for a mini-
photo-shoot :) So fun!
However, the real story was yesterday - it seemed like my little sprout did just that and acquired a bunch of new skills and a new level of understanding over night! For starters, she has been struggling to sit up for long periods of time. Not that she "can't" really.... more that she's too squirmy to really do it for long, especially when she insists on siting bolt upright most of the time! Well, not any longer! Yesterday joe set her down and 10 min later, she was still just happily sitting there, playing with some toys as we got ready for church!
Secondly, at church she started playing this new game with the man sitting behind us - one where she'd start by giving him a nice smile, then when he smiled back, she'd bury her head in my shoulder, all shy like - Yah Right! Not this child! But it was fun to see her play with him like that!
She also decided she likes walking! For the last few weeks, she's been insisting on being held in a standing position almost always. However, yesterday she started repeatedly putting one foot in front of the other as we hold her fingers and she "dances" on tip-toes half of the time :)
All of that, combined with GINORMOUS smiles she can't seem to contain and eating PILES of food last night before bed and I have to say this girl is growing by leaps and bounds! Cliche, i know :)

People have asked me how I'm dealing with the "Favre Situation". To be honest, I'm sure I'm WAY less informed than current residents of Wisconsin, since when I talked to my Mom about it, she passionatly informed me of many items of which I was previously unaware which only fuled the flame of my frustration at the Packers. However, as time has gone on, I have slowly come to terms with the fact the Brett is in fact a Jet. To be honest, I think he looks kinda goofy in a Jets uniform, but whacha gonna do! So ironic that he in his Packers uniform are on the cover of Madden this year. Though I am upset at the outcome, I am going to have to stay true to my roots and remain a Packers fan, despite their blunders... with or without the only QB I have ever known as a starting Pack. But I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be listening a little a closer for updates on my favorite Jet.
To help me remember why I'm not selling her on EBay (as Wendy would say :), here are a few photos of my little princess from her 6 month photo shoot - ARG! I don't know why the colors aren't coming through right - they all look blue! Well, hopefully you still get the gist! ;)

Last Wed was our Anniversary - happy day to us! It was a LOT of fun! For Joe's birthday my parents had bought us tickets to go see Brian Regan - if you've never heard his stuff, you should! He is one Funny Dude! and the best thing is that his humor is clean - imagin that! Joe also brought home roses and took me to a fancy-shmancy restaurant (with the aid again of mis padres- thanks padres :) called the Chefs Table. It was SO nice! And the food was AMAZING!! Definitly a nice place to remember for very special occassions!
Speaking of special occassions, the next day was Priya's 6 month birthday!! Happy Day, cutie pants! We took her Friday to get some photos done at JC Penny and come to find out that she has cut her first tooth!! I know I know, I said she had cut a tooth a while ago, but I wasn't really looking into her mouth, just feeling, and it turns out it was just a ridge in the middle of her upper jaw. THIS tooth is on the bottom, and the one next to it is close on it's heals, resulting in a VERY drooly baby!
Sunday I took a few pics of our baby on my own since I'm not sure I'm thrilled with the stuff from Pennys... mostly, I just like their backdrops and enhancements for the photos, but I'm going to talk to a friend of mine at the Fotoshop and see if they can create some nice layouts for photos as well that we can use - that way it's MUCH cheaper, I can keep the digital images and have a much larger selection of photos to choose from :)
Today our little princess went back to the doc for her 6 month check-up! Here are the Stats:
Weight: 15 lb. 5 oz (35%)

A week ago we had a visit from Priya's good friend Sophie, and her mom, my good friend Wendy :) These little cuties are just so fun to watch together, and are only 1 week apart in age! It's especially entertaining as they both roll around the couch and are falling all over each other!! I'm so grateful Wendy and I get to learn how to be moms together and our little lovelies can start out their amazing little lives together!

Here are a few pics from Adam & Tessa's wedding. I WISH my camera had been charged for Jon & Rainah's wedding! That's ok - I'll just look @ everyone else's photos :)
Back to Co, we had a great time. It was also great to see Anne and her family on Friday! Her husband is currently training to go overseas with the Army.
Anyway, it was BEAUTIFUL - I could definitly consider living there! Maybe it'd be a little better if it wasn't in the middle of a heat wave, but over all, it was very nice! Anne even took us to this GREAT Alpine Slide and drove us through Red Rock park as the sun was going down - nice!
