I can't believe it's been over a week since I've updated! I guess I haven't been taking any Cadence pics lately. I really need to take some soon. She just learned how to roll over onto her belly. It's so funny because she gives us a great big smile when she gets there. She's growing up so fast! Here's one from a couple of months ago. I can't believe how tiny she was!

I finally started her scrapbook the other day. I got the title page done and then today I got 5 or 6 pages done at a crop. I hope to keep working on it so it gets finished before she's 10! It's so much fun using girly colors and papers.

I made a couple of cards this weekend but didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted. I am going to a crop this weekend and I wanted to get some preplanning done on some layouts for Cadence's scrapbook. Oh yeah, I got her title page done on Fri.

Anyway, here's a picture of her in her exersaucer. She loves being in it and playing with the toys! This five month old does not want to lay down or lay back in an infant seat!

I made the baby card for my cousin who just had her second girl. I believe that image is Bugaboo.

I always wonder if I'm at the right number when I'm posting! I suppose I should check first. (yep, I was wrong)

Here is Little Miss C in her PacSun outfit! LOL We were kidding that she should model for PacSun so some of her mom's customers would know how to dress. She seems to like posing for the pictures! She's drooling so much in one, it looks like lip gloss!

I'm really excited that we got another snow day today! It's the last day of break so it was an easy one to call. It's a winter wonderland out there! We have at least 5 inches out there and it's coming down like crazy. I'll get the full report when my hubby comes in from clearing the driveway. Stay safe out there!!

I had the best night watching Cadence eat. She was trying peas for the first time and my son called me down to watch. I sat on the couch and watched her gobble the peas. Then I said, "Was that good?" and she laughed hysterically! She kept doing it after each bite. My son finally took a video so it's really just the end of a funny meal time.

8 & 9/50

I cracked up over this cute little hat. Evan got it from American Apparel before she was born. He loves purple and she loves teal so she has a lot of things in those colors. This was one of those weekend mornings that she came up to play with me while her dad got his shower in.

I have a many of you still have gift cards from Christmas? I typically go right out and spend them. Right now I have one for: my lss, Michael's, Panera, Marshall's, JC Penney. I feel like I'm forgetting one or two. We just used the last of my Chili's (had two) yesterday. I just can't seem to find the time to go out and spend them! I plan on going out tomorrow (my holiday) to try and find some clothes at JCP and maybe a purse at Marshall's. I'm not a Marshall's shopper but my boss got me the gc so I will see what they have for me! I usually go to my lss on my lunch hour but I haven't been taking for the last two weeks They are closed on Monday so I will try to go Tuesday.

I was supposed to go with some friends to an lss that I've never been to but ended up spending some time with my little C instead. I hate calling it babysitting like it's a job. I can't get enough of her sweet face. She's been laughing lately and it's so cute!! She's growing up so fast! One thing I can't wait for is for her to sit up and crawl. She is so strong with her little legs and neck but her arms aren't that strong. It'll be so much easier to be able to have her sit at the table with us in her little high chair and just sit on the floor and play. As soon as we lay her on her belly, she starts doing the sit ups. I need to start doing that so I can have abs like Cadence! LOL

Here's another hat (her mom wears this kind) and a few shots of my work with the huge snow banks.

Our little diva has so many hats, it's not funny! Here's one I love. I busted out laughing when they came up the stairs with this ensemble. She had a white furry hooded vest on with her jeggings and this hat.

Today was a snow day for us. It's great but the clean up is not so much fun. My husband and son were out there for about 2 hours and it's still coming down!! My son's girlfriend kept calling the mall to see if she had to open the store. It was horrible out, white out conditions and all, and about 15 inches of snow in the driveway. Anyway, to make a long story short, she called just before she got to the mall and they finally said that it was optional to open the store. It took her almost 2 hrs. to get there. She stayed for an hour or so. Half the stores weren't even open and there were no customers so she left. My hubby went back out to clear the driveway again so she could get up the hill. The boys will sleep well tonight!!

Cadence's mom put this headband on and we all thought she looked adorable! I ended up buying her a couple so she had some variety. She looks a lot more girly with one since she has no hair! They don't put her in them a lot but I try not to butt in and tell them what to do. It's hard keeping my mouth shut with them living here. They're very good parents and they've surprised me with some of their decisions. I'm so happy I've had this time with her in her infant stage. I know I wouldn't have seen her very much if they hadn't been living here. It's not easy working full-time and arranging work schedules around a baby.

Anyhoo, she looks like a little tubba in this but in person she's a petite little thing. She is almost 5 months and weighs about 13 lbs.

It's all in the jeggings....

I wish I had the body to wear jeggings because they are so comfy! Here's Little Miss C in hers.

In an effort to get back into blogging, I'm going to be posting photos of my sweet granddaughter.

My friend, Betsy, has started a blog for her year of 50. Go on over to myyearof50 and check it out. She's a talented scrapper and very funny.

Here is my first of 50. I never know what I'm going to see when little Miss C comes up the stairs with her mom or dad. She always looks adorable and gets us laughing. It's as though she knows the reaction she'll get and she gives us a great big smile to go along with the outfit. This is the cupcake hat Uncle Greg bought her for Christmas. It's meant to be for a young girl, not a baby, but he couldn't resist it. She has a big head for a baby but it's going to have to wait until next year!
