It's the freakin weekend baby. I'm about to have me some fun.

This weekend Qiana and I got to be pretty social and get out of the house. It was a nice change of pace. Michelle came over and spent the weekend, and we had so much fun.



Friday night we went out to dinner with the girls....delicious.

Qiana, of course, couldn't keep things out of her mouth.


Saturday we headed to tri-cities to get some shopping done. The weather was not super awesome, but we were troopers and got things done. In the mall, we stopped at Claire's to check out some new earrings for Qiana, and saw these adorable glasses that I just had to put on her....

WARNING: The picture you are about to see may be TOO ADORABLE to handle...








After a few hours of shopping, sick Michelle started to get fussy headed and Qiana was getting wayyy tired so we packed up and headed home. On the way home Emily and Michelle played a rousing game of "name that tune", with me as the host, and Emily won. Michelle did good, but we had to lower the bar a little for her...as long as she got one word in the title right she got the point...oh michelle!

Sunday, after going to a singles ward to hear Emily speak, we headed over to Ephrata to hang out with Michelle's family and have some amazing stew and cornbread (yummy). Emily, Michelle, and I entertained ourselves with speed scrabble, and a "lizzing" (30 rock reference) induced game of guesstures and celebrity, while Qiana spent some cuddle time with mama and papa Grout.



GOOD TIMES!!

On another note....

My baby is 6 MONTHS OLD!!

They say that time goes by so quickly, and now I totally understand. She is becoming a little personality now, and it's so much fun.

She loves to cuddle, and is now getting into hugging, and nuzzeling into my neck.


She loves playing with, touching, and chewing everything that mommy
has in her hands, and is so very curious about the world around her.


She smiles a lot (well at least for me)


and loves just laying on me and relaxing.

She is most happy when she is able to stand up and jump around.

Her favorite sleeping position is still craddled in my arms

and often times she likes to just lay there, looking up at me, and talking.
My little girl.

She is adorable and I LOVE the 6 month age SO much! They have a personality but aren't mobile yet. :o) It's a whole new ballgame once that happens and life will never be the same. Enjoy it while you can!

Quiana is SOOO adorable. And quite the trooper judging by your weekend. She takes after her mama!

I have never seen a baby whose eyelashes curl like that. She is so lucky! And she always has the cutest clothes. Those tights are freakin adorable! Your weekend looked much more fun than mine. I need a good girls weekend out.

I love this age. Although I seriously have to stop reading your blog because everytime I see more of Qiana's wardrobe I find myself wishing my little guy was a girl... that can't be healthy for either of us...

Kimmy said...

Yeah, seriously, her clothes are the cutest ever! I'm jealous...do they make them in my size?!

So glad you had a fun-filled weekend. Sometimes it's nice to have lots going on.

Qiana is absolutely beautiful. You two are so cute together.

I wish I could write something else when you post about Qiana, but I just can't. She's adorable and I want her (and her clothes!). The pictures are just too much for me, I want to frame them, ha!

I agree with Kim, I love, love the photos of the two of you together.
