Where does the time go?

Such a cute little chunk!!

So things have definitely been flying by. Ashlynn is already 5 1/2 months!! It's just crazy. Right now she loves her baths and can hold her self up if you balance her just right. She is eating rice cereal and I think I'll soon start her on fruits and veggies. She has started holding her weight too while standing. She LOVES to pull her socks off any chance she gets. She is a such a happy baby...but ya wouldn't know it because she won't smile for the camera still. me danny and even my dad have all tried to get a picture when she's giggling or she'll smile at anyone who looks at her but there's just no way i'm ever going to get it on camera. very frustrating.
Danny's doing well. He is very helpful and cleans the house whenever he's home and does the laundry and washes the dishes. He just a Mr. Mom I guess.
Danny and I also got the Insanity DVD's and they kick our butts!! Holy Moly it's hard but I really like it and it's getting me back into shape. I didn't really have that much to lose...but it's nice to finally start getting those last few pounds down to my pre-pregnancy weight.
Work for me is going well. I definitely don't spend as much time or work on prepping like I used to...but i have good reason. I'm really glad I taught though for 4 years before having a kid because with teaching...each year gets a little easier. It's always different for me, but it's definitely easier now than it was in the beginning.
We are also still trying to figure out where to go for our 5 year. We really like Hawaii and haven't been to Kauai or the Big Island, but the flights don't look that good so we'll just have to see when happens.

She is totally a Daddy's girl! And I'm the one always taking the pictures :)

Yummy Rice!!

Always playing with her feetsies

I should have made these pictures bigger....but she kinda has red hair. I think she gets it from b both Danny and me. His beard grows in a little red and in the sunlight my hair will look red. She's growing so fast! I can't even believe it. Some things she is doing right now is she started rice cereal and took it just lovely...she's starting to hold herself up while sitting and is giggling a lot more now. She is also a little wiggle worm and every time I try to change her diaper she just smiles and wiggles like a worm. It makes diaper changing a little difficult. She also loves her baths and has realized what splashing and kicking does. Such a fun girl.
Work is going well for me, but it definitely keeps me busy. I've been trying to get into a better workout regime but it's kinda hard after work to have the energy to come home and workout. especially since all I want to do is play with Ash. But I've been really quite lazy when it comes to my health so I guess along with everyone else my resolution should be to get back into good shape. wish me luck....this could take a while :)

Back to school....

Well sadly the time has come for me to go back to work. It's amazing how fast time goes. I think the hardest thing about going back to work is not being able to spend every minute with ashlynn. I love all the stages they go through and being a part of it. Newborns are fun becuase they are so tiny and sweet, but the older they get and the more interaction they have with you, it's more fun. Ashlynn is sitting up really well now and LOVES to stick her tongue out when she smiles...but i still have yet to get a picture of her smiling...she's so quick to get rid of her smile the moment a camera goes up. Her head is also starting to round out so hopefully things will work out.
Danny is also finishing up school...YAY!! I really never thought this day would come. But he can finally apply for graduation and only has one more class to pass so hopefully it all goes well.
I have a week off in February and our 5 year anniversary (yes, 5 YEARS) is the first part of March so we are trying to plan somewhere to go. any suggestions would be great!
