Diaper Bag Tag

My bag isn't really a diaper bag either, I got it at Maurices because it was cute and big, but I have realized that a big bag = tons of stuff! It was stuffed to capacity because we were going to take Lainey out to dinner with us, but then decided to leave her with her grandparents instead.

The Usual Essentials
  • Wallet, WIC papers, pen
  • Gum, tissues (used and new...sorry, that's gross, but we've been snotty!)
  • Hand lotion, hand sanitizer, and for some reason, two colors of lip gloss (I was wondering where they were!)

Lainey's Essentials

  • Baby food, bib, spoon
  • Snacks (fruit snacks, 'stars', the Fiber1 bar is for mom because I get grouchy when I'm hungry too!)
  • Sunglasses (which she never keeps on)
  • Mittens, just in case :)
  • Pink monkey, keys, and giraffe
  • Diapers and wipes
  • Tylenol and orajel (she just cut another tooth... top left!)

Random Things

  • Lint roller, because I can never find one when I need one!
  • Riverdance Ticket- I went with my family for my sister Libby's b-day
  • Tongue Depressor- for those unexpected throat exams... (Lainey just had her 9month check up and Dr. Ralston gives them to her to distract her while he's checking her ears, nose, whatever)
  • Ladybug book that I was supposed to leave in Tropic with Grandma April... Sorry Mom! I guess I forgot to take it out after church!
There you have it... a glimpse into the life of a mom of a 9 month old... I really needed to clean out my diaper bag... it was pretty messy! So thanks, Jen!

Grandpa Layne's Birthday

While I was blogging, I got a call from Josh and he has been offered a promotion! He'll be moving into a Sales Manager position, starting at $38,000 and increasing to $40,000 after the first 90 days! It is such a blessing! He has been on hourly, so he hasn't had any sick days or paid holidays, so this will be awesome! I just wanted to share the good news!

Sunday was my dear dad's 50th birthday, so we spent the weekend in Tropic. It was so much fun! Josh had been really sick, so he wasn't planning on going, but he finally decided to the last minute. We drove to Cedar on Friday because I had to drop some things off at the college and we were feeling 'homesick' for our old college town. If you get a chance, I recommend walking through the new Education building and Old Main. Wow! They have done an excellent job on those buildings, and they are beautiful! I am jealous that I had to complete the education program in the hot yucky classrooms of the old PE building, but oh well, at least I am done! After that little detour, we drove over Cedar Mountain to Tropic (I love that drive!) Lainey did so well considering she spent the majority of the day in her carseat. On Saturday, we loaded up the horses and 4wheelers and packed a picnic for a day out in the Paria (south of Kodachrome) It was so much fun to have everyone there, and Josh really enjoyed riding horses (I don't ride horses...) and we went on a long 4wheeler ride and got really muddy- it was awesome! Lainey had her first horse ride and 4wheeler ride- She loved it! It was so nice to get out of the city and play in the mud!
