Gettin' to it

Well, I'm finally getting around to updating this thing lol Its been a few MONTHS! (it might get a little boring but, i want to update it like my journal lol u can skip if u like...) The past few weeks have been a roller coaster for our family. We've had A LOT of car drama. In August, i went to a girls night with some aunts and cousins of mine. While i was out with them, Max took the girls to a family party that his side of the family was having. While i was playing games with everyone Max called me and said that he was heading home and the car started smoking and broke down. AND he had 2 tired, screaming girls in the back :( So he called a tow truck and me and my sister Alicia drove to go pick them up. Luckily we found someone to fix it for cheap (it ended up being the radiator). Then a couple weeks later, Max (poor guy) was driving home from hanging out with a friend of his and the car totally broke down on the freeway! We decided, since we didn't want this car in the long run, to just get rid of it instead of putting more money into it. SO, the next day, we went car shopping and found the perfect car (van to be exact lol). We had our other car paid off so we now have a car payment but its worth it for the piece of mind :) A few days later...Max's work truck breaks down! (he needs to stop breaking our cars! lol jk i still love u ;) BUT we were SO lucky to find this awesome guy out here in Maricopa that just completely fixed it in our budget :D Hopefully all our car problems r over *sigh* As far as all of us go, Max (being a pool guy) is excited that its getting cooler here hehe He works so hard at his job and i really appreciate what he does for our family :) I'm looking forward to the holidays! On the 1st of this month, Lydia and i decorated to house with all our Halloween and fall decor. its so much fun and seeing how excited she's getting, makes it that much more fun. Lydia is one of the funniest kids i know. She says things sometimes that really surprise me lol She's gotten to the point where she will listen when Max and i r talking and she will comment on it haha We have to really watch what we say around her. She has hit the jealousy stage :/ When Brie was first born, she was just super protective with her and not jealous AT ALL. but now she gets really excited when Brie goes down for a nap cause then she gets her Mommy and Daddy all to herself. The other night, after work, i needed to go to the mall to return some things. i decided to take Lydia just o get her out of the house and out of her dads hair for a bit (if u didn't know, she's a super daddy's girl lol). i was going to make it a quick trip BUT, we got to the mall and my mood was quickly changed. we walked to the different stores so i could return my stuff and she was just having so much fun just being there just me and her :) We ended up going into the Disney store, we went into Claire's and they were having a huge sale so i gave her a little basket they had and let her pick out a few things. She thought that was just the most amazing thing ever! They also had little rides so she went on a couple. After we we done with all that, we went to the food court and got ice cream. As we were sitting there, she said "dis is soooo fun, mommy. and Brie's not here" haha! We just really needed a little girls time :)
By the time we got home, it was 9pm so she was pretty out of it. SO Max was carrying her upstairs and, half asleep, she says "i wove u mommy. Dank u for the mall." It made my heart melt :) I've decided to make it something we do more often. Well, Miss Brie is just growing right before my eyes! She is pretty much crawling now, she says 'mama' (for me and Max lol), and she now waves and says 'bye'. Its so weird cause i still picture her as my tiny baby. i have to remind myself that she is 8 months old! In a few short months, shes going to be 1! Brie was my extremely hard newborn. She was constantly crying and nothing would get her to stop. My mom always had a special touch with her tho lol But we couldn't just hang out at my mom's all the time. After she got her first 2 teeth (at 2 months old!) She has done a complete turn around. She is the sweetest, snuggliest, and smartest baby i know :) I love in the mornings when its just her and i before everyone else gets up. She just sits and "talks" with me for awhile :) She's my little nugget and i just love her SO much!
