Nalia is such a good helper. She loves to help me with Ruby.
PS...I love your teeth Nalia

Monumental Moment

Yes that's right, she rolled over...the first time we thought it was a fluke, but our little boo has done it twice now. She's so strong!

So many things to be thankful for.... Looking back on this past year so many great things have happened to our family. We're so thankful for so many reasons. We hope you and your family are finding things to be thankful for too. God bless

Nalia and Ruby....

Casey and I had the privilege of keeping our niece Nalia for the first time ever (she usually cries as soon as her mommy leaves). We had so much fun playing with her and Ruby. Nalia is showing Ruby how to kick here in this pic. Ruby's gonna be one tough cookie thanks to Nalia!!

Uncle J...

Just found these pictures of my brother Justin, his girlfriend Amanda and Ruby. Thought they would like to see them too.


So I've been really busy being a mom, wife and coach these past few weeks. It's been difficult for me to find a good balance in life lately. Basically what happened is my housework got seriously neglected. But thanks to my mom and Casey's mom it looks great now. Family is so amazing. Thank you for helping out so much. We love you all.


My team competed in their first competition of the year yesterday. All in all it was a great day, pretty long but good. We placed 2nd in hip-hop (lost by 1.9 points) and 3rd in lyrical (lost by 4 points). I'm extremely proud of my girls. They brought their "A" game yesterday for sure. Now we just have to work extra hard to turn those 2nd and 3rd placed trophies into 1st place ones!! We can do it, I know it!!

New Toy...

After much research and long talks Casey and I finally bought our dream camera (you know its one of those must haves when you have a baby)....the Nikon D40X. It's so cool! You'll be seeing many more pictures of Ruby now that I have a nice camera to take them on.

A horrible no good very bad morning...

It all started at 4am, I woke up with one of my monster migraines. Not able to take any of my medications because I'm breast feeding, I had to resort to Tylenol, and let me tell you it did nothing. At about 9am I vomited, soon after that Casey had to leave for work and I was so nervous about having to take care of Ruby by myself. I literally could not even walk without getting sick. Luckily Casey called my mom and she was able to take off work to come take care of Rubs (thanks mom). What would I do without family. I was able to sleep for a solid two hours and I took some more meds, and now I just have a headache with slight nausea. It is hard work being a mom. Props to all you moms out there, especially you moms that are pregnant too. I can't even imagine!!
