Five Months Old

Our little Presli is already 5 months old, time is flying by. She is such a fun little baby who always has a smile for you, we just love her so much!


*You know Presli is mad when she starts blowing raspberries when she is crying. It is often to her detriment because it is just so cute we often watch her cry a little longer than we normally would.
*She loves her binki and won't go to sleep without it.
*She likes to suck her thumb, but has recently found that she loves to suck on her big toe even more.
*She loves to roll to her stomach but has forgotten how to roll to her back so she gets stuck and very frustrated.
*She still LOVES to be swaddled. A lot of times she doesn't like to sleep in her carseat because she has to much room. So now we tuck the blanket as tight as we can around her so she feels that comfort.
*She is sleeping in her crib now (I like to keep them by me for the first few months). However, our great through the night sleeper has now decided to wants to see us in the middle of the night at least once and sometimes three times. Little stinker!
*She loves her sister, and smiles and giggles at everything she does.

She just went to the doctor last week (for her 4 month) and here are her stats:

Weight: 12.56lbs (11th percentile)

Length: 24.75 (47th percentile)

She is a little bean long and skinny. Very fitting considering we often call her Presli Bean. She brings so much joy to our lives and always has a smile for us. We love you Seslee!!

This was the first time Hali ever asked to hold Presli. It lasted about as long as it took to take the picture.

She has always loved cuddling with her daddy.

St. George Parade of Homes

This has to be my favorite room of the house. One day my girls will have a room that looks something like this one.

I would love to do laundry in this beautiful room

This is the room that can either be opened or closed off by the barn door, such a cool idea!

Beautiful master

I want that bathtub!

I wish I could say this is my house, but it's not. It is however, two lots away from my house, and the house my father in-law 'Hoopes Construction' built for the 2010 St. George Parade of Homes. This is his first time ever doing a Parade house and I think he started out with a bang! As you can see it is BEAUTIFUL. The pictures speak for themselves, if you love the French country style then you will appreciate this house. There were a lot of very talented people who worked together to make this house happen. Shawn Patten was the architect who came up with the clever barn door idea, Dan Hoopes the builder made it all happen, and Herritage Home and Garden were the decorators who added the beautiful details. These are only a few of the pictures taken from this house so to see more go to hoopesconstruction.com. Oh and if you are looking to build a house, get a lot by us we would love to have you as neighbors, and Cottam Fields is a great location, we love it!
