it's been so long...long...long...

Oh so much to tell you. Sorry I've been away from the blogging world for like a week now, and I feel so behind. OKay where to start....

On the 29th Qiana had her 4 month check up, and everything is splendid. she is rockin the 75-90% in height, weight, and head so she is doing great. remember how I was freakin out about tummy time and makin sure she was developing okay....well apparently she has the muscle strength motor skills of a 6 month old, and has all the tools needed to roll over and start moving she just has to have the will...so I guess I'll calm down now.


(apparently Qiana thought she could make some extra cash by showing me a little something...)

The next day we left for a little VaCa in Utah and it was so much fun. Qiana was a dream on the plane (she pretty much falls asleep the moment we sit down, and stays asleep until I am deboarding...yeah I know...awesome). We rented a car, which a was a little drama cause Qiana just wanted to be done walking around and really needed to eat, but once we got settled in the car and she was fed life was good again. We stayed at Cali's and it was so fun hanging out with her, joey, and her kids. Cali had a bumbo seat, that Qiana pretty much loved

...apparently it's really comfortable too.

We even got to be there for their big super bowl party, and even though I am not the hugest fan..any excuse to have a party with amazing food, is alright with me!

Qiana even wore red for the Cardinals in honor of Joey's team.

Cortney came over one day and took some amazing pictures of Qiana. He has a couple on his blog, and I can't wait to see the rest.

I got to hang out with my friend Tamu and her family which is always a great time. The kids loved Qiana, and I don't think she minded the attention at all.



The visit was so relaxing, and fun.

Oh funny story....and by funny I mean completely awkward. While visiting Charleen and her family an older couple stopped by to bring her dinner (she just had a knee replaced). They were explaining to her about some apparatus that the husband had used for his knee therapy a few months earlier and asked if she wanted one? this is the rest of the conversation...

older lady:

yeah ask your therapist and if you want it we could.... (pause to look at me and Qiana)
excuse me...
Ni**er rig you one.

she leaves and we all look stunned in disbelief.

Yep! She said it. Pre-apologizes, and then says it anyway. Like she couldn't think of any other way to say it, so she just had to! seriously! How ridiculous and awkward right?


anyway...

The last day of the trip we both got sick and came home not feeling super awesome at all, so we just hung out. also, since we got back from the trip Qiana has been a little needy and just starts fussing the moment I set her down, and smiles the moment I come back. who knows what that's all about. I have mentionned before how she is really starting to babble alot, but I have such a hard time capturing it on film cause the moment she sees the camera she quiets and stares. So I lucked out in taking this.

She is also starting to laugh. it's hard to get it from her, but she makes you smile when she gives it up. (that's what she said)

When I was down in Utah Cali made a comment about my nails and I hadn't even realized how long they had gotten. I did a little buffing of them and was stunned at how pretty they looked. although two have now broken, so the moment was short lived....good thing I caught it on film.

That sleeping Bumbo seat picture is the cutest thing I've seen today. Sounds like an awesome trip - insane comments not included - that's like not something you would even see in a totally akward moment on the office. You can't make this stuff up.

What the CRAP was that lady thinking????? WOW....you're a better person than I am. I would have pimped slapped her:-) LOL J/K

Kimmy said...

Okay, you didn't tell me about the crazy lady at Charleen's!! Wow, that is so ridiculous. I saw the pictures on Cort's blog...they are so cute!!

come on, it's clearly a compliment. You know, when you can take something that to most people would be completely useless and do a few things to make it work. I call it being resourceful. I'm just not seeing the controversy. The Japs do it all the time.
