Check out my Bling

Marlee turned 4 months old on the 26th and lucky for her she had her Doctors appointment the next day. Her stats are now: 12 lbs 12 oz, 33% for weight and 25 1/2 inches, 90% for height. So she is one long, skinny baby but healthy none the less. Marlee is surprising us more and more each day. She just seems so smart and so strong for her age. She can already roll over from tummy to back and from back to tummy. She giggles more and more each day. She talks up and storm and can get very loud. Marlee found her feet the other day which is so cute to watch. She also kicks her feet like crazy. I think I put her socks back on like a million times a day.

After Marlee's Doctors appointment, we decided to go get her ears pierced. It was either now or wait til she is older. So since she was already going to be in pain from her shots we thought why not get the ears done too. Doesn't she look so stinkin cute?

Rice Cereal

Can you believe Marlee is already 16 weeks? Where has the time gone? It has been so funny to watch her become more aware of her surroundings. She is so alert but she has been since day one. Well we have noticed that very time we eat or drink Marlee will watch our every move. She is watch the fork get the food, the fork going up to my mouth and then she'll even watch me chew. So since she seemed so interested, we tried rice cereal today.

This picture is before we got started. She has no idea what is coming.

Ok, here we go. She didn't no what to think at first. It just sat in her mouth for a few minutes. Then she realized there was something in her mouth and she started smacking her lips. It was so cute.

See here it is just sitting there. But she doesn't seem to mind it.

The spoon wasn't working to well so I tried using my finger. She did much better with this and started to eat it a little more. It was a fun experience but I think we might wait a few more weeks to try it again.

Fiesta Bowl

Roy and I were able to go the Fiesta Bowl this year. We actually got season tickets and what that means is every year we will have the option to buy tickets to the game and also the National Championship game if it is here that year. We had such a great time. This was also my first time leaving Marlee longer than 2 hours. I believe I did pretty well.

This picture doesn't do the Boise State fans any justice only because that was the side we were sitting one. But there definitely was a sea of orange. Boise State fans were so much louder compared to TCU fans. Every time Boise's defense stepped out onto the field they would go nuts. It was a great experience to witness true fans.

Here I am with our tickets. Our seats we decent ( we were like 5 rows away from the very top) but as Roy would say, " It's better up here because you can see the plays develop"

Here is Roy being his goofy self. That the game, Roy ran into someone he went to Jr. High with. It was crazy! They were sitting across from us and one row down. I tell ya, Roy knows someone every where we go.
