So i couldn't just pick one for this week!  
This morning i put this dress on Rose thinking i needed to take this weeks pictures at some point and then i looked outside and saw all the yellow dandelions in our front yard.  

flowers in her hair

look at that little face!  
Lately when she's playing she'll get excited and squish up her face and make this heavy breathing/laugh noise.

Us girls enjoying some warm weather before the storms rolled in earlier this week.
Zivas toy got caught in my hair and was pulling it before I took this picture so that's the reason for the face. Rose looks a little scared too. It cracks me up. 

We're still working on some sleep training here.  Some nights are pretty good while others are still pretty rough.  We're thinking maybe she's teething.  That's the only thing we can think of as to why she's all the sudden not sleeping through the night anymore.  Putting her down to sleep is fine, but keeping her asleep through the night is where our trouble is.  Hopefully it's just a phase.  A couple months ago I had a rough month where she was very fussy nursing and I almost quit because I was getting so stressed about it.  She would just scream and refuse to nurse.  I stuck with it and things are so much better now.  She use to feed for an hour and now she's down to 15 minutes maybe.  So maybe after this sleep trouble it will all turn out better too!

Easter 2015

Rose's first Easter!

I know it was kinda pointless to do an Easter basket this year, but i ended up buying a little basket anyway and put in things that she already had.  Mostly gifts that other people had given her....some she's already been using.  She'll never know the difference ;)  
(I forgot to get some grass stuff so i went into our shredder and stuffed some in the basket)

We decided last minute to go to church for Easter.  We haven't been yet since Rose was born (we did go when we visited in GA) so it was her first time in the nursery.  I think she liked it.  She was just chillin' in a bouncy thing when we cam to pick her up. 

Can't forget about my Ziva puppy!

Tuckered out after the days activities!

**I've noticed that lately when i take pictures on my iphone and send them to my email so i can upload them on the computer that they aren't the best quality.  I'm not sure if i shouldn't be doing it like that or what, but they don't usually look so pixel-y on my phone.  Sorry about the quality of the photos, i'll try to fix it so they look a little better.  :)  Thanks for checking in!**

mini flowers

Yesterday i went out and clipped a few things blooming around the yard right now.  There's not much, but i wanted to clip them so i can enjoy them before they're gone. 

Muscari i planted a couple years ago

Hellebore my mom gave me a couple years ago and rex begonia leaf

Recently enjoyed things

a short hike on a nice day 

We went to the zoo on a day that Jeremy got off really early.  We thought by going on a weekday it wouldn't be as busy, but we were was spring break! So it was pretty packed.  

St. Patrick's Day

Rose has been gradually starting to sit up by herself.   
It's funny to watch her trying to sit up from laying down on her's like she's doing crunches.

Here's a little picture series for this week (barely getting it in! I'm slacking).  

Check out those chins!  

Rose had her 6 month check up this week.  
Weighing in at 13 pounds and 5 ounces.  
Healthy baby!

We've also been doing some sleep training this weekend.  Last weekend we stopped swaddling and had a few rough nights with her waking up a lot and i kept picking her up to rock her to sleep.  Then i think she got used to falling asleep in my arms and would wake up and cry every time i tried putting her down.  This weekend we decided to let her cry it out. Friday was the first night and she cried for an hour and i'm not sure who cried more, me or her.  It was not easy for me.  It still isn't, but she doesn't seem to cry as long and she does sleep longer through the night now unswaddled.  Before when she was swaddled she would often sleep through the night no problem, so this has been an adjustment for both of us.  Hoping each day gets a little easier (we're doing it for naps too so i'm always dreading putting her down for bedtime or naps).

a few pictures around the house

I decided to walk around the house earlier today and snap a few pictures.  Just because.  We've lived here for over 2 years and there are still areas that look blank or not decorated.  Partly because of the way the house is, partly because we don't have the right furniture for the space and probably partly because i don't love this house.  I think if you don't love it then it makes it a little harder.  I think if we bought the house and could really make it our own then maybe i would have done more.  Here's just a few bits and pieces around the heezy...

dried babies breath and salt lamp

this week

This week has been so nice! It's been in the 50s and 60's all week and we've been on a walk everyday.   It went by really fast to me.  I kept thinking yesterday was Tuesday or Wednesday.  Although I'm kinda surprised because Rose has been up more in the middle of the night this week.  Jeremy got off of work really early one day so we went out for lunch.  We ate at a nice little cafe and it had this garden store inside of it.  It had some really cute home stuff too. Later we walked around an antique mall,

I bought a couple coloring books....more for adults ;)  I've been coloring during Roses naps or staying up at night when i should be going to bed. 

getting a little fresh air! 

pretty ranunculus! 

Here's a screen shot of us from the tv segment about the ballet class

I know this picture is half blurry but i thought it was cute anyway!  
Rose was probably on the move!
