 I still can't believe that I have a one year old! Life with Lexi gets better and better every day!
She is so so much fun! She has quite the personality! She is dramatic, as sweet as can be and a little bit sensitive. I can't imagine my life without her. She makes me want to be a better person. She is my favorite little person ever!

Lexi vs the Cupcake!

My lovely mother-in-law sent me the pictures she took of Lex devouring the cupcakes she had in Tremonton. I thought they were adorable, so I had to share! This girl LOVES cupcakes!!

Here are a few cool shots she took of Tip on the slip n'slide.

Lexi's First Birthday!

Today was a Lexi's First Birthday!
We had a great day!

She woke up and we ate Mickey Mouse pancakes....

After church we opened presents.

 She had to sit in the box to open it!

 She got a new baby doll stroller. She was in LOVE!
 We had one of her favorite dinners, noodles!

 After her nap she played with her stroller and was so excited!
She pushed it around giggling and smiling!

 Pure LOVE!!

 Then we sang happy birthday and blew out a birthday candle!

well I helped blow out the candle..

Then she dug in!

It was a good first birthday!

HaPpY bIrThDaY LeXi!!!

She loved all the birthday calls and songs! Thanks every body!


Tip's Grandma Plowman died last week so we headed up to Tremonton to the funeral. It was quite an eventful trip. As we were driving up there we made it to Cedar when our car started acting funny. We decided to turn around and drove back to St. George to the dealership. Sure enough our transmission was bad. Six hours and a rental car later we finally were back on the road. Then rental car we got happened to be a two door black Mustang. Although, it seems like a really cool car it is not carseat friendly. I felt like I was right up in the dashboard. 

The funeral was really good. It was good to see family and to spend time with Tip's parents. Lexi loved being up there. She enjoyed playing with her cousins. While we were there we decided to do a little shindig for Lexi. Grandma Dina made cupcakes and we let her attack them. She thought it was awesome and kept giving big grins between bites. She smeared them everywhere! We then opened presents. Diana and Gary gave her a cute outfit and her first barbie.

(while we were doing the cupcake thing I dropped my camera into a cereal bowl. So my milk sogged camera wasn't able to take anymore pictures. It did dry out thanks to Gary, but then today Lexi dropped it on the kitchen floor and broke it again. I guess we were destined for a new camera.)

 Lexi decided she wanted a bite of Gary's cheerios. He offered her the spoon and she dug her hand straight into the bowl for a handful of cheerios. He was a good sport and didn't mind sharing.
 This is the cute birthday outfit!
Before the funeral Lexi took a short and only nap of the day.

The Cupcakes....

I think she liked it!

Happy First Birthday Lexi Grace!!!

One year ago today our whole world changed for the better!
I never knew how much you could love another person until I held this tiny baby in my arms for the first time!
She is our everything!
We love you baby girl!
Happy Birthday Lexi Grace!

Lexi has been walking for over a month but I haven't posted on it yet. I have a lot a video of her walking but not near as many pictures. She LOVES walking and gets better every day. She is now walking more then crawling. She walks a little like a marching Frankenstein. I can't believe how big she is getting! It is so crazy to me to see her walking down the hall. As you can see she is holding onto her baby. She LOVES babies. She drags her doll everywhere! We sure love our little girl!

Parduhn Family Reunion

Last week my Grandpa Parduhn organized a Parduhn Family Reunion. It was a blast! Everyone came down to St. George and enjoyed the heat. We spent a day lounging and four wheeling. One up to Zion hiking and having a picnic. A day hiking to small water falls and ponds swimming. One morning we went trap shooting. Tip did really well and I was quite surprise by the shooting skills of Jami and my Mom.Lexi loved having her cousins her to play with. I don't think she left Jadi's side much. It was the first time in a long time that neither Madden or Lexi were sick so they actually got to play together! We also got to celebrate Lexi's birthday a little. Thanks to everyone for her presents. My parents gave her a doll that she honestly hasn't put down since. She drags it around everywhere!

This was Lexi's first time really swimming and she LOVED it. I think we have a water baby on our hands. She didn't want to get out. She loved getting splashed in the face. She even wanted to drink the water and eat the mud and rocks!
