BYU vs UofU 2009

It was that time of year again! BYU won 26-23 in overtime for Manase's final game in Lavell Edwards stadium. It was a bittersweet day for our whole family. We worked hard to get back to BYU this year and it was worth every minute. I'm SOOOO glad we ended Manase's career on such a high note, not to mention it felt pretty good beating the Utes. :) We have one more bowl game left, but I must say...we will truly miss BYU Football. It makes me so sad to think that I will never go to another game at LES to watch my #11 play. It was so much fun while it lasted and we only have some exciting things coming up for us in the future!

2 Months

Our little Leila is now 2 months old! Goodness how the time flies!
So far she...

*smiles on command
*talks nonstop...whether you're talking to her or not! Even if I'm yelling at the TV or talking to Manase, we'll suddenly hear her start chiming in. lol
*has become accustomed to nursing and REFUSES to take a bottle
*sleeps 12 hours a night (which Mommy LOVES!!)
*has learned to love her swing (another plus for mommy)
*has begun to know when you're paying attention to her and when you're not, and DEMANDS your attention
*she stops crying when she hears me walk in the room to pick her up
*STILL despises bathing. as soon as she feels the water, she screams like someone's killing her!
*holds her head up amazingly well! she can even sit in her bumbo already!
*every once in a while SHE LAUGHS! def my fave of the month...

She's our little "fie'ilo" or "nosy" girl. She always wants to be held sitting up so she can look around and see what everyone's doing. She likes to watch the colors on the tv and loves listening to music, just like her brother. She's definitely our little petite baby. We call her a pixie. Everything about her is tiny!(except her hefty appetite! I swear I don't know where it all goes!) It's new to us, as may of you remember Semisi was and still is a monster child! At her checkup she was 10.5lbs (36%), 23in (53%), and her head is 15.25 in (48%)...she sure is different from Semisi and all his 99% stats! But we love our little bug. She cracks me up everyday..she's such a little chatterbox. I can't wait until she can play with her big brother, and he can't seem to be able to wait either!
