Boutique & Farley

Well Last weekend was super busy! I decided last minute to make some things for a boutique. Man I don't know what I was thinking! I had two days to finish all my clips and headbands. It was my first boutique and I was really happy with how the finished products turned out. The name I decided on for my flowers is Posh Petals. However, after doing all that work I decided I would rather stick to just making them for fun! Figures.

Can you find Farley?

yep that little white pup in the pic is my daughters new favorite thing. Mykah loves that stinking little white dog with all her little heart. She is so sweet to him, he takes naps with her goes shopping with her and last week he made an appearance at church with us! When she gets fussy we just whip out Farley and she is happy! That's what I get for saying how good she has been with not getting attached to things! Anything for you Mykah!

Really late Halloween ....

So these halloween pictures are a lillte late but oh well...
Here is Todd and I with Mykah. I got her all dressed and ready with her costume on, freckles and all and she had decided she did not want to wear it! You can tell she won and went trick or treating like that! We went with my brother Todd and Christy and Tay and Paityn(the girls looked so STINKIN CUTE!)

Mykah flying around the house..............

Todds sweet pumpkin skills...

All in all it was a good night of candy and fun! Happy Halloween!

What we have been up to...

It seems like all I post about is Mykah! Then I think about it and all I do is Mykah! So here is what we have been up to.. Mykah started rice cereal on her 6 month mark and LOVES it. She feels like such a big girl eating food now! As you can see she is not the cleanest eater and I am not the cleanest food feeder so we make for a good messy team!

Mykah and her stares. She is so serious when she wants to be, but she keeps us laughing all the time. Oh and a while back I blogged on how I could not get Mykah to nap well I found a way. I mentioned Babywise and how I had just started. Well it is amazing! AMAZING I cannot praise it enough. It has made such a difference in her demeanor and her sleep. The last two nights she slept right through! Which for her is massive improvment! Let me tell you this girl has a habit of waking like up to 3 times a night.. after 6 months of doing that you get insane! So hopefully she keeps it up. Nap times are great, in her crib she goes and she is out! 2 times a day for about an 1 1/2 or longer! I love it I feel like I can finally get things done.

Applesauce and Rice cereal. She hated the applesauce at first!

My little Bumblebee. We had our ward Trunk or Treat last night and Mykah was so grouchy so none of these pics show a smile:( (I will get better ones on halloween!) The antennas kept poking us in the eye making us crack up! She kept seeing the little yellow balls and tried to grab them! Therefore making her head move like crazy and continuing to whack us! Happy Trunk or Treat!


You asked how much hair Mykah use to have and here it is! SO sad uh? She went like totally bald. Oh well she rocks the mohawk......

My sweet daughter,

Oh where Oh where does the time go? As I box up itty bitty socks, little nightgowns and all sorts of bitty baby things I am realizing you are growing up. Oh its a harsh reality, one I am not yet ready to face. It seemed like an ETERNITY to get you here. In our eyes you are truly a miracle and we feel so blessed to have you in our lives. What was one of my hardest trials produced one of my biggest blessings. You. I have a testimony that "Our time is not always the Lords time." Before I realized this truth though, my heart would just ache when I saw a pregnant girl. Every girl around me was pregnant, just had a baby, or had a family. For some time it hurt I allowed these thoughts to hurt those around me. I became very angry. I wanted so badly to experience pregnancy. I was so absorbed in what I did not have and how everyone else had what I wanted. It was not fair to me. Why could other girls just WHAM get pregnant but your daddy and I not? That's when I started to gain a testimony that "Our time is not always the Lords time." I would like to tell you that I woke up one morning and realized this but not so. When the Lord finally decided it was our time the 'magical stick' FINALLY said what I had hoped for for a LONG time. PREGNANT. I knew that our struggle was only half over. I needed to get this baby here safe. At our 7 week check a hemorrhage was found (i kinda freaked) but they said just pelvic rest and it should dissolve. At our next check up which was only a few weeks later the hemorrhage was huge it grew to 7 cm! That was like bigger than your precious body! Now they gave me bed rest, no work no anything just worrying about you! AHAHAH I kinda went crazy. How could this happen it took so long to even get pregnant. I am sad to say my faith started to falter. I prayed and prayed and prayed and I was renewed in knowing that the Lord knows what is best and I have to have faith and truly trust in his plan for me. The hemorrhage slowly dissolved and I had a healthy pregnancy. I loved being pregnant with you. I loved feeling your little kicks and turns,and dreaming what you would look like. I was able to get through the ups and downs of pregnancy, because I knew it was a blessing to be pregnant! I will never forget the sweet feeling I had when you were finally placed in my arms. You are a miracle baby in our eyes and we are so grateful for you. So as you grow from my little baby I once longed for to a big girl that is 6 months old. As I replace those itty bitty clothes with what seem like BIG GIRL ones, I reflect on the past and am excited for the future. So Mykah I hope I can teach you faith and patience and love for this gospel that brings us joy and happiness. I am so blessed to be entrusted with raising such a special spirit. We chose to have you, to become parents. I longed to hold my sweet baby and here you are. I love you Mykah Girl. With all my heart. Stay sweet and true to yourself and always put the lord first in all you do and you will find true happiness. Love, Mom

The Results Are In.................

And the verdict is............Well see for yourselves. I tried unsuccessfully to get her to cry herself to sleep. After about thirty minutes of crying I felt so bad and put her in her swing. As you can see she tried to bail. Ha! I strapped her in tight! It was quite for a while so I peek around the corner and Bella baby was out! YES! SWEET! I was STOKED! I took a shower, put laundry away, worked on some much needed headbands(pics soon), thought about doing some Pilate's, ended up taking a nap. Oh yeah and in case you did not notice... Yes my child is hanging half way out. Did I fix her? Do I look stupid? I left her like that for an hour and a half. Think its sad... You come put her down for a nap! It was so Blissfully Quite. Until scroll down......................................................................................................................................

I saw this! OH SNAP!

Okay so this pretty much sums up where all my time has been going today. Like I should totally be doing laundry. RIGHT NOW. But as you can see this came first.(at least I have my prioritize straight) So my question is SCHEDULES. To have one or not to have one that is MY question. I swear this girl came home such an angel. I assumed she would just fall into some sort of routine. Yeah right. I was so young and naive. Now that Mykah is coming up to 5 months(and I have matured oh so much);) I think I better figure something out. SOON............. So I am kinda liking the whole Babywise thing. Only it feels like she sleeps a lot of little 45 minute naps after her 'awake' time, and the whole let herself fall asleep thing....... Yeah I think not. She screams and screams to the point of ALMOST throwing up. I even make sure she is really tired before! I would just like some kinda routine for her. Is that too much to ask? Well now that I think about it I guess I kinda have one.... It would just be nice if she followed it. Surely I cant be the only new mom who cant seem to get things done. I really should not complain cause she is such a doll most the day being happy and smiley. However I would like her to take naps. Yeah naps would be nice. Real NICE!

Mykah was a dream baby when she first came home from the hospital. She would sleep all the time and was an angel. It was bliss. While it lasted....Well lately she has traded her halo for horns!! This girl is so sporadic at naps its not funny. One day there 2 hours long other days 30 minutes. Then she teases us and sleeps all through the night for a week and off and on for another. The next week she wakes up 3 times every night all week! AHAHAH seriously I was not a bad baby so I do not know why I am being punished! So here she is looking all cute! Its a good thing she's cute or else!!! She is not fussy when she is up. I would just like to be able to get something done like LAUNDRY! Oh well! There is always tomorrow. Surely this cant last too long.............

Just Visiting

As you can tell poor Mykah was exhausted after going into my old work! We decided to go in today to visit grandma.(my mom works there) It was almost nap time so she was a tad cranky but it was still fun. It sure made me miss work I had so much fun working in preschool then as an aide in kindergarten. All the kids in my old class kept telling me "Ms Shara your baby is so cute" "I love her big flower!" "Her cheeks sure are big" haha It was always so fun to hear the funny things kids say! Now I get to hang out with Mykah all day and I would not trade that for anything! Oh by the way if you like Mykah's HUGE flower check out my site I am selling them!

i Am LoSiNg My MiND

NO really its Gone! Someone help me! The minute my sweet little girl popped out so did my FREAKING mind...... For example ......... Ask me to do something and you can count on me to forget! I can tell you a whole story get to the END and forget what I was telling you about in the first place! THE only thing I would be good at right now is keeping secrets! So your secrets are safe with this forgetful MoMMA! Seriously though is there like a SMART PILL I can take? I know I cant be the only person this has happened to! Or maybe I am? Any other moms out there with advice? SO until I get help I am pleading temporary insanity.

All Dolled Up

Sunday was Mykah's first time going to church. It was also baby Dax's blessing so what better reason to get all dressed up! I was so excited when I was pregnant and found out we were having a girl. I could not wait to dress her up! She even had little white patent leather shoes and tights with lace on her lil bum! Ok so I made this headband and the minute we put it on she was silently protesting! I know the flower is a bit on the large side.. but it was cute! Obviously she was a bit unsure.

RoAD tRip BAbY! On the beach
All of us at the happiest place on earth!
The gorgeous beach house

Well this memorial weekend was unforgettable. Thanks to Shawn and Amy, we got to go to Oceanside, California. It was our first road trip with Mykah. Todd and I were so proud of her she was an angel! California was awesome, the weather was AMAZING! We got to go to the beach, be with family, sit around the fire and talk, eat good food. We also got to go to Disneyland! We even took Mykah on a few rides!(she loved them I am sure) It was 5 days of complete bliss. I am now working on Todd to move to Cali. I am sold!

Mykah Rory Hancock

OK so seriously our sweet little baby girl is already 6 weeks old. Which is oh so sad! So these are a tad bit late, but quit complaining better late the never right? Here is a quick birth recap: April 23 we went into the hospital and I was already dilated to 5 1/2cm at 7pm when we checked in and by 10:30 Ms Mykah had joined our family! She came after less than 30 minutes of pushing. I know what your thinking wow that was a fast delivery but trust me I paid a price!! She weighed in at 7lbs and 4oz. It was such a relief to finally have her here! We fell in love with her the second we saw her. She is absolutely perfect! Everyday she is here we fall more and more in love with her sweet little spirit!
