Sophie seems to change her favorite movies about twice a year or so. First it was Finding Nemo, then Dora The Explorer, and now... SPONGEBOB! Or as Sophie calls it 'Bu-Bob'. She even has a little stuffed Spongebob.
A few weeks ago we were walking through WalMart, and Denny spotted these jammies. Aren't they adorable?!? I love them. I'll have to get a picture of her little doll, she's sleeping with him at the moment.

Just in case any of those don't work, here is the link to my YouTube Page.

And for some reason my stupid pictures won't show on the sidebar so here is the link to my Photo Album. It has all the pictures I ever post, including the ones from Bear Lake and PineView. ENJOY!


Denny left work around noon on Friday. We packed our crap in the car and headed to PineView Dam come around 3:00 pm. Lucky we got one of the last few camping spots. Tina headed over with her date Wes late that evening.
Sophie had oodles of fun playing in the water, collecting rocks, running from dad in the sand, and just being a little dork. I loved it.
Saturday rolled around and my girlfriend Heather came up. (along with her baby Jaxson, hubby Mike, and his brother Matt) Much fun was had that day, until we found out Sophie had 4 teeth coming in. Joy of joys! We went on 3 car rides trying to get her to nap and relax. Thank GOD Heather had some Origel in her diaper bag... other wise I probably would have started to cry too.
Tina headed home that evening, because her daughter Melissa is a boob. (Damn you Melissa!) We still had oodles of fun that night.
We left Anderson Cove sometime around 10:30 or so Sunday morning. We stopped in the canyon for some breakfast... that sucked. Sophie soon lost interest in waiting for her food, her teeth began to hurt, and she just screamed and screamed and screamed some more. All in all it was super fun (minus the teething) and I would LOVE to do it more next summer. I'll have tons of pictures in the sidebar once they finish uploading.

Why Me?

The above picture was taken at about 5:30 this morning.... let me explain.

Sophie's sleep has been messed up since we went to Bear Lake. She now sleeps until around 9:30 to 10:30, and doesn't go to bed until around 11:00. Which wouldn't really be too bad, if my pills didn't make me tired as hell.

Last night she was a pain, so Denny sent me to bed around 11:00 pm, and stayed up to watch Spongebob with Sophie. Eventually he got her to sleep, and brought her in to bed.

About 3:30 in the morning she stands up and screams. I thought she had a nightmare, so I tried to comfort her. We came out in the living room, and she didn't want to be touched. She laid on the floor and cried into her blanket. I had no idea what was wrong.

4:00 am rolls around and Denny come out into the living room to see what all the hubbub is about. I've been asking Sophie if she wants everything from a bath, to an orange, to watching tv, and nothing worked. I asked her if she wanted to go on a ride in the car, and she nodded, SO OFF WE WENT!

Our first destination was McDonald's to get Sophie some fries... Damn those McDonald's workers... who would know that they don't serve fries at 4:00 am, the jerks.

We then make a round about to pick up Denny since he was feeling sick, and not likely to go back to sleep. Denny proclaimed that he wanted a pepsi, so we hit up Betos. While I was driving, Denny was suffering from lack of sleep, and saying random obnoxious things.

(I was heading back to the ramp on 31st in Ogden)
Denny - where are we going?
Lexi - wherever I want
Denny - I don't like this! What if we get shot!
Lexi - we aren't even in Ogden yet
Denny - what if a gang member wanders off and gets lost, and shoots us in anger?
Lexi - you need sleep

There were many conversations of that nature. We came back home, at about 5:00 am. Sophie ate her rice and watched Spongebob. (that is when the above picture was taken) Once she finished, we snuggled on the couch. Eventually she passed out around 6:00 am. I dragged her to bed, and she woke me up around 10:30.

Denny never went back to bed.


Little Jax

My girlfriend, Heather, and I have started a lovely arrangement where we swap babysitting days each week. This way we each get a date night once a week. Wednesday night little Jax came to play with us for a few hours.
Sophie decided to 'lotion' him, with bum cream.... she is her father's child. He did delightful though. Sophie just LOVES him. Hopefully having him around a lot will get her ready for another baby. Lord knows I want another one.
Denny even made him giggle like there was no tomorrow. I loved it. I have a video, but it needs to be uploaded. I'll post all the videos once I get them up.


Our last kitty was the devil. Scratching everything and everyone, was her goal in life. Since then Denny has wanted another kitty, and I finally agreed. I found a picture of this kitten on KSL while he was at work. Denny instantly said "get the black and orange one, I want to name it Pumpkin! Get it!"
And so Pumpkin became the newest member of our family. She does amazingly well with Sophie dragging her all over the place. We have few scratches.
Plus once shes old enough I get to declaw her. MUHAHAHAHA!
Needless to say, Denny is very happy. And I have yet to hate the kitty, so I'll keep you posted.

Last week we went to play in SLC. Sophie wanted to touch the water, and Denny is into extreme parenting.
We walked around the Planetarium, and played with all the cool, over priced, toys.
I think Denny had more fun than Sophie.

(there will be a few new videos up later tonight)


Since I love being outside, I love the sun, and I love water - I often drag everyone down to the river. They may protest, but they WILL go.
For I am all powerful.
And just all around awesome.
And I totally sex this guy!

Bear Lake

Here is Sophie watching SpongeBob on the way down to Bear Lake. That two hour drive is insanely long.
Denny buried Sophie in the sand. It was a pretty fun time. We met up with my girlfriend Heather, and her family.
Sophie got a hold of the sunscreen and decided to lather it up on her face. You can never be too safe from the sun after all.
I was cute and girly. I wrote our names in the sand and put them in a heart. We were supposed to spend the night, but it got WAY too cold. So we headed home around 9:30.
Sophie LOVES playing with the dogs. She just adores them.

Bring On The Gossip!

Now everyone I know has a big mouth, so I figured I'd get this out of the way now.

While I do love my husband very much, our marriage has been... for lack of a better word, Shit.We were married young, and on top of that had a baby thrown into the mix. As you can imagine, many mistakes were made on both sides.

Long story short, we pushed each other away, far away.

We are now in the process of fixing all the damage that has been done over the 2 years and some months. We are taking evasive action! Neither of us will just lay down and die. We both come from broken homes, and neither of us want that for our darling little Sophie.

So there you have it. Straight from the source. If I catch you gossiping, I'll punch you dead in the face. You have been warned.

Breastfeeding Is Offensive!

I copied this from a post by LilGrlLost on Cafemom. I loved it!

I'm thankful for not having boobs thrown in my face all day by the offensive and indecent breastfeeding mothers like the ones below:

Wait...Well, this is a bad example. Let's try again.

Hmm...Just a minute. I'm sure I can find better ones than these...

Eh, still not offensive enough. I'll check one more time.

That is better. LOOK AT THAT! I see about a half inch of boob. DISGUSTING.

UGH. Look at that indecency! She must be from some third world country to be exposed like that!

Now that's just...There are no words to describe how inappropriate that is. Something needs to be done!

But why stop at breastfeeding women? There are boobs everywhere. Beware! If you thought the above photos were offensive, you WILL DEFINITELY be offended by the photos below.

Not this one, though. This one was in plain view on news stands and in mail boxes in 19 countries world wide!

Not this one, either. This one actually won an award!

Oh, and I guess this one is fine too. Everyone knows you can't sell jeans without someone being topless.

Or beer, for that matter.

Or sunglasses.

Or movie tickets.

Or CDs...

You know what? Maybe I'm crazy, but I think that someone mixed up some photos here. The first batch are offensive, but the second batch are just fine and dandy???

People who live in glass bras:

Shouldn't throw stones:

If you think women have the right to breastfeed their children no matter where they are, please repost this...comment vote it popular whatever . Support breastfed babies and their right to eat in public!
