Miss Channing Layne turned 4 months old on July 24Th and we took our Sock Monkey pictures as usual. This session was a little more fun than the others because she is smiling so much and laughing at us too! Enjoy!

Chandler Visits The Grocery!

On his way home today Chandler needed to stop at the store to get some prescriptions filled for his horrible cough and he sent me this picture titled, 'I love the g-store' ! Hummm, this is not what the cart usually looks like when I go. It made me laugh so I had to share! Notice the tomato's and avocado in there for good measure and also the dish detergent in the back! Way to go babe!

One of my FAVE products!

This has to be one of my FAVE products since having Channing. I love to have my nails and toes painted all the time and do not have the time or money to constantly be getting mani/pedis.

Top 2 Tuesday!!

Top 2 Favorite perfumes/colognes/scents
1. I will never be able to find it again but the first one was a spray from BBW. It was called pink Hydrangea and it was my fave EVER. They always discontinue my faves.... BOO I do love 'Love Spell' from VS too!
2. My second might be either Origins Sunny Disposition or Banana 'Modern' (I think that's the name) I really think those might be the last perfumes I had. I have ended up with more sprays than anything.

Random Sweet Pictures!

Saturday morning stare down!

Just hanging out with my Daddy!

I LOVE him can you tell?

Talk to the hand!

She asked her Daddy for a should massage while she watched TV! What she asks for she gets!

The Vintage Pearl!

Remember this? Chandler gave me this when Channing was born. It is from the Vintage Pearl!

Head over to the Vintage Pearl's Blog for a great giveaway! They are participating in the 'Midsummer Blog Party (A Giveaway)' Go check it out and leave them a comment for a chance to win something from their shop!



Yesterday we put Elmo on while we were getting dinner ready and getting some laundry folded. Channing seems to already be enthralled with Elmo which is OK with me since I found myself laughing at some parts of the DVD. I especially loved the part with the 'Shoe Channel'; all shoe's all the time. I mean who wouldn't like that channel!?

I just thought this picture was cute. She was holding onto her 'Ellie" the Elephant and would smile and 'coo' every so often at Elmo! It was really cute! I wish I had gotten a picture but before the DVD was even over she had fallen asleep watching it. She's the sweetest girl around!

This Morning!

This morning Channing looked so cute we just had to take some pics before we headed out for the day! Breen had given Channing some CUTE leopard pants and we wanted to get some good use out of them even this summer, so Mama being the fashion forward Mama that she is decided to roll those suckers up and make cute little capri's! She wore her jellies and matching bow with her outfit and I really think that's what pulled it all together! It only made it sweeter that she was just the happiest little girl this morning!

Cute Pictures!

I realize the quality is not great but these were too cute not to share! This was Saturday night while we were just relaxing at home. I had Channing sitting on my lap and she leaned towards the wine glass... Future wino? It looks like she is very serious about that glass of wine... NO SHE DIDN'T GET ANY!!

Chandler took this of the two of them just hanging out on the couch together. She is so content laying with dad and its super cute!

Chan Tells Elmo What To Do!!

Top 2 Tuesday!!

Top 2 things you want to purchase!

1. Someday we would love to have a little lake house on Cedar Creek Lake! I don't care what kind of house but it is so nice just to get away and relax at a lake house on the weekend!

2. I want to try the 'Your Baby Can Read' series but have no clue if it really works and if it is worth the money. Wouldn't it be cool if Channing could read that early!

4 Month Dr Appointment!

Thursday Channing had her four month Dr appointment. Our 'little' girl has grown so much! She was so happy this time at the Dr and he seemed very pleased when she smiled at him when he walked in the door; I don't know how long that will last but it sure was cute! She performed for him moving around and trying to sit up. When he held her up she would not put her legs down to stand; which she does all the time so we laughed about that. She did it for me a few minutes later and he was able to see her do it. He gave Channing the 'go ahead' to start first foods, mainly fruits, and cereal! (I will post pictures from that first experience when I get those pics off the camera!) Lets just say we have an eater on our hands.

Here are her four month stats:

Weight: 13lbs 6oz

Height: 23 3/4 In

She was in the 30 to 40Th percentile for everything including the head measurement! That's funny to Chan and I because I never made the charts and he was always at the very bottom! She got one oral vaccination and two shots that just really made her mad! She calmed down pretty quickly and did fine the rest of the afternoon and night. We even stopped at Target to get a few things on our way home. That night she was more tired than usual and we gave her some Tylenol and she slept very well.

All in all we have one healthy beautiful angel baby girl and we love her more than words could ever explain! We feel so blessed and thankful for this precious little one!

We are so proud to be your parents! We are thankful everyday that God choose us to be yours. We are already so proud of you and can't wait to see what your future holds! I am sure only amazing things of course!

Love you sweet girl!

Dinner With Friends

Last night our friends Sara and Ryan came out to have dinner and hang out. I got some cute pictures of them with Channing but that is where my picture taking stopped. I had intended to take more but forgot. Maybe it was the margaritas Ryan made us! Anyhow, Sara and I grew up together and it is really fun for me to have her hang out with Channing! We had a great time eating burgers and drinking margaritas! A perfect summer night!

Just Some Recent Pictures!

I got Channing some new pj's so one night before bed we did a little photo shoot. She is also working on sitting up by herself so we were also practicing that!

This is what Channing and I do about 30 minutes before her last bottle of the night before we put her to bed. I call it cuddle time. I love this special time and I wouldn't trade it for the world. It gives us both a chance to relax and spend some quality quiet time together! I LOVE HER SO MUCH!
