Strawberry Day's We Won't Forget!

Our Little Miss America!!!
Continue down the post to read why we won't forget this years festivities!
These two pics explain the day that we had!!!

This year's annual city celebration was really fun but just a little different then I expected! Wednesday morning was the baby contest and all the Miss Pleasant Grove Royalty girls that I helped in their Pageant this year were judging the contest! So I thought oh fun I will enter Cupcake and go say hi to all the girls! Now I have to say any of you that know Cupcake know that she is one of the happiest babies around! She rarely cries, she is always smiling and striking a pose for the camera, and is totally a people person! So, I assumed she would perform for the girls at the baby contest, especially cause they adore her and she loves them! We get there and of course it is during her nap time, and we are in the line (7-12 months) that is not in the shade for over an hour! But usually she does well without a nap and in the sun, but today was very different! Unlike her character she was totally fussy, not wanting to eat, play, sleep, and or do anything but be held and FUSS! So needless to say, she didn't win! But, the story does not end there! I got her to get to sleep on the short drive home, where Bailey (my cute cousin) and I were getting everything ready to go to the Provo Pool, with Melyssa and Maddie. We got to the pool and Cupcake was still asleep so we laid out, and took turns going down the really fun slides. When Presli woke up she was really happy and so I didn't think anything more of the morning except for the fact that it was hot and she was really tired. So we go get in the kiddie pool and Cupcake starts acting really fussy again and starts rubbing relentlessly at the top of her little head! I guess as a first time Mom you never really know what to do, when something abnormal is going on with your child, so after about an hour of her not digging the pool, which is so not like her, and a horrible rash starting to appear all over her body, I decided to take a visit to the Doctor! I came to find out that she had gotten a virus called Rosiolla, which is farely common in babies her age. Just a hint for you first time moms out there, it starts with a really high fever for two or three days and then the rash comes a day or so later, and they are contagious during the fever stage! So the doc told me to give her benadryll for the itch and to just let her sleep it off and she would feel better in a day or two! So we followed the doc's orders and she did start to feel better, and then the blow-outs hit! So, just as she started to feel better she got a really sore bum from all the dirty diapers that comes with the virus! Poor baby! So by the time we were ready to hit the Rodeo with all of Daddy's Friends, which was very fun, she was feeling a lot better except for her little bum! Needless to say it was all really scary, sad, tiring, and a whole new world of firsts for us! But it will be a Strawberry Day's Extravaganza we won't forget!!!

New Beginnings!!!

So we have officially started the summer!!! And of course only in the best fashion! First off we have a new addition to the Lindsay side of the Fam!! Georgia Ann Lindsay..........My uncle Scott and Aunt Melyssa just adopted a gorgeous baby girl Georgia! She is currently five weeks and we are all loving her! It's going to be so fun to have Hunter, Cupcake, Georgia, and Connor (who is coming in August to the proud parents Jason and Carina) so close in age they are all going to be the best of friends and we are having a blast having all these new babies in the Family. We also started the summer with two graduations! The first boy cousins in my family to graduate, Alex and J.T.!!! We are so proud of them and can't wait to see where life is going to take them and especially where they are going to be serving on their missions!!! Summer is so much fun!!!

Teeth, Crawling, and Daddy!

So if you look really closely at this picture you can half way make out two bottom teeth!!! Yea, she finally has teeth! It seemed like it took forever but they are finally sprouting! We have quite a lot going on in the Miller home between teeth and crawling it is has been crazy!!! Ok so I know I did not post a picture of Cupcake crawling but, I want to post a video of that because it is hard to feel the excitement in a pic, and I have not quite figured out how to do that! Anyway about two weeks ago she started attempting to crawl and within a few days was up and movin!!! It's so weird that something so small and so helpless can discover and learn so quickly! She has also started trying to pull herself up to a standing position, key word being trying! She does not always succeed which usually results in a bumped nose, head, bum! Seeing how quickly she has been learning and figuring stuff out I have no doubt that she will be mastering the skill within a week or two! And before we know it she is going to be walking! I can't believe how fast they grow!!! We love her so much and are so excited for all the craziness that comes with crawling...................and I am sure not too far off WALKING! Cupcake has been really loving on her daddy a lot lately! She still usually wants her Mommy, which I am very grateful for, cause I know that once she gets over that she is going to be a daddy's girl for life! But for now Daddy is loving it!
