Yup, she pulled the middle cushion out and made herself a little bed, what a goof, but a cute one!
She is very intent, do not disturb!

So, Callie has a catch phrase. Yup, "Oh, Man!" She says it all the time now! Her first time saying it was on Saturday. My mom was here and she was downstairs with both of the girls and Callie had a waterbottle and it fell, so she watched the water spill out of it and just said, "Oh, man!" Since that incident she says it all the time! It is so funny, I guess she picked it up from me, although I didn't realize I said it that much, but in her little voice with this real inflection at the end, the first time I heard her say it, I laughed my head off. I am sure as she continues talking more, there should be more exciting words to come!

I love our stroller and so does Callie. After she got in, when it wasn't quite put together yet, she wouldn't get out! She loved it so much and then she made us hurry and put Peyton in the front. We were in the basement, so Ryan and I had to carry the stroller with the girls in it up the stairs and out because Callie was not getting out. So we decided to go for a walk and I thought we could go over to the church and watch Molly play volleyball. Well, by the time we actually made it there, she had finished and already left the church, but nonetheless we had a fabulous time and again, we love our stroller! Now, I just have to hope that Callie will continue to love the stroller and stay in it, instead of feeling the need to get down and run all around, like a crazy person!

Well, if you had been spying through my basement window for the last 45 minutes you would have seen me throwing my body all around the room in an attempt to get excercise and lose some weight. You see, my beloved little Peyton was so sweet to give me the craving for Zip's fries on a regular basis as she was cooking in the oven, so 50 pounds later here I am paying for those fattening albeit delicious fries. So, I am down 20, thanks to actually giving birth, but I have a persistent 30 more pounds to go, so I am giving you all an idea of the great lengths I am going to return to my normal body. His name is Tony Horton. Yes, beach body workouts are my friend or foe. Tony forces me to kick, punch, do yoga, hop, lift my knees and other fairly entertaining moves. But, he promises a beach body in 90 days. Hmmm, I am just not sure it's going to work, so in addition I am running my little heart out. Yup, Chari and I are meeting in the morning to get a move on. So, my 30 pounds is not going to be staring me in the face forever, I am going to lose it and I want to run the SLC half marathon in April.

Well, I don't have the pics yet, but I wanted to announce that we have a new member of the family! Peyton Jane Christensen was born September 8 at 11:03 p.m. She was 6lbs 14 oz and 19 inches long. She is absolutely beautiful and is such a good baby so far. She sleeps a lot and when she is awake, she mostly just looks at you and lays there. Callie didn't hate her, she just kept saying baby and tried to give Peyton her binkie, but was sticking it in backwards and then taking it away again real quick. But overall, the reaction was much better than I was expecting. We will see how it goes after day 1! I am feeling pretty good so far, very happy to be home! Pics will be up soon!

Well, Ryan and I did a silly thing on Saturday. We went to Silverwood. Now, one might think, gee, that sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't been to Silverwood in years, so, we went with my family for one last outing before Ty left for school. Yeah, should have rethought that decision. We took Callie. For those of you who have ears probably know that I was a fool. Yes, I am sure most of the several thousand people at Silverwood heard us at some point during the day. It was an utter disaster. Nothing was what she wanted, and then when she was finally happy, something would go wrong, like her trying to steal someone else's ball. Yup, that really did happen. She wasn't a big fan of waiting in line, which I can understand, who is, but seriously, like three minutes isn't that big of a deal, however, my broken ear drums prove otherwise. So, what did most people see? A hugely pregnant chick carrying around a screaming child, I looked ridiculous.
Thankfully there were a few saving moments. She loved the log ride, until my dad sprayed us, ya know, when you plug in the quarter and you can spray whoever is in front of the water gun thing. Yeah, none of us liked that so much, but the rest of the ride was fabulous. And she LOVED the little kid ferris wheel. Oh man, she just laughed, absolutely loved it. Then she screamed when it stopped because she didn't want to get off. The first time, the girl unbuckled her seatbelt and opened the door for her to get out and she just closed the door and sat back down. Hmmm, I think she might be a little independent. Anyway, I guess I am glad we went, I am not sure yet, however, we will not be returning with her for several years and next time I don't want to be pregnant. I like roller coasters and obviously, they discourage them when you are two weeks away from giving birth! I have now documented this expedition for all to read, and to serve as a forever reminder why we don't do certain activities, but rather, wait until the kids are just a little bigger!

We really enjoy going to Millwood Park, it has tons of toys to play on, the most important is the swing followed closely by the merry go round. Plus, it has a little wading pool to cool off in. Callie will play in the pool for a few minutes then make the rounds at the toys. It's tiring for me, but she absolutely loves going to the park.
Callie also loves to play outside, climb on anything, ride her tricycle, which she doesn't really ride, but its funny to watch anyway! For her birthday, a few months early, she got a big swingset in the backyard from Ryan and I and her grandparents on both sides. She "helped" Ryan put it together and he got some more help from Beau and Ty, who were good sports about it. So, when it was done, Beau was nice enough to push her on the teeter totter thing. The higher, the better, she thinks it's great and she has no fear!
