Sneak peek at Erin Dietrich's photography

Nick and I have been blessed to have been introduced to Erin Dietrich. We met her through Andrea...Sgt Jewett's wife. Sgt Jewett is a new recruiter that came to our office while I was on maternity leave. I saw a lot of her photography that she did for the Jewett's and then on her facebook of other couples and families that she photographed. I fell in love with all the pictures and HAD to have her take our family pictures and Dannika's 3 month pictures. I didn't want to do the "beach thing" cause I had my maternity pictures done there, so we decided to take our pictures at the Mission in San Juan...SOOOOOO GORGEOUS! I can't wait till she gives me the rest of the pictures she took. Here are the sneak peeks that she posted on her facebook for us. Nick thought these pictures belonged in a magazine! She did such a wonderful job! Thanks Erin!

Just the two of us...

Nick has been in the field this past week training to go to Afghanistan at the beginning of the new year. This has been the first time that Dannika and I have been alone at home. I've gotten to bond a lot with her and it's been a lot of fun. The mornings are always my favorite time of the day. I love getting her up and ready for daycare. The few minutes I get to spend with her in the mornings are my favorite part of the day. We usually watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 and then we head off for daycare. Here are some pictures from our early mornings.

We love fall time clothes!

She finally fits in her cute little bloomers!

My baby is growin' so FAST!

I took Dannika to the mall in Ontario with me this weekend with Dulce, Andrea, and Dulce's son Christopher. We all decided to go do a little Vegas shopping. I got Dannika all dressed up cute in her little outfit with her big orange bow in her hair. Well yeah...that didn't last. As soon as we got to the mall, I decided to change her real quick in the hallway to the public bathroom in her stroller. As soon as I took her diaper off, she peed all in her car seat. I quickly pulled her out so that I could clean it out and handed her to Dulce (bare bottomed with no diaper on), and as soon as I handed her to Dulce, a little pooplet fell right out of her onto the floor and bounced next to Dulce's shoes. We were laughing so hard. Luckily, I'm a prepared mom, and had an extra onesie for her in my diaper bag. Of course the onesie I had didn't match her orange bow that I had, so the whole "looking cute" thing went out the window....she's always cute though...

This is her after the pooping incident at the mall

Passed out at the dinner table in her bumbo chair.
Her in her little sleepy suit. She sleeps SO good through the night in this thing. She looks like a little bunny in it.

Dannika's First Pumpkin Adventure

Nick and I decided that this year, we would actually go to a pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins for Halloween. Needless to say, it was a lot more fun than going to the grocery store to buy a pumpkin. Dannika had a ball. We picked out a mini pumpkin for her and one GIANT one for mommy and daddy.
