Stiener Reunion

This is Rusty's Granny with all of her sweet great grandchildren. She has 10 of them!

This is Lilly's cousin Addie from Georgia. We had a great time with her and her children.

We had a great time with the Swiss relatives above. They are wonderful people. This is our trip to the Woodward Elks Rodeo. I hadn't been to a Rodeo in a long time and I enjoyed it. My Mom and Dad watched Lilly for us. It was nice having an evening out.

Friends and Family

The Levy's came to visit us last weekend and Piper and Lilly had a great time. They were such good babies. We loved having them up to visit us. When we went to Woodward this weekend Lilly swam in Grams and Gramps pool. She loves the water and would stay in the water as long as we would let her.

This stage of life at 5 months old is so much fun. I am just loving being a Mommy. Lilly is growing and changing so fast. I just want to stop the clock for awhile.

Busy Times

Well, I do not have any pictures to share on this post, but I will post some tomorrow. My good friend Betsy has some for me on her blog

Our friends the Gregory's and the Mcdonald's came to visit over the 4th of July weekend and Betsy took these wonderful pictures of Lilly. I just love them. Thank you, Betsy!

We have been busy traveling this weekend. We have been to Woodward and Arapaho visiting our families. We are tired, but had a fun time. Pam, Rusty's Mom, had relatives come in from Switzerland for a family reunion. We went to the Woodward Elks Rodeo, on a hay ride and horse back riding. The Swiss relatives enjoyed the "Wild West"!

I hope everyone is having a great summer! I'll post pictures of the weekend tomorrow.

Happy 4th of July

We had a great 4th just hanging out at home. We did not see any fireworks this year due to little one's bed time of 8pm, but we dressed Lilly in her cute red, white and blue and went out to eat for breakfast at Classen good!

I can't believe how big Lilly is getting. June was such a fun month of watching her grow and begin to sleep through the night. It has been nice to finally be settled in our home. I am looking forward to meeting new friends and finding a church home. We have been working on finding a church, but it takes a lot of time in such a big city.

I am anxious to find some women that have children to connect with. I have been so blessed with friends in Bartlesville and Stillwater that I miss a lot. I know God will provide a great group here as well.

Trip to Plainview Texas

Lilly got the chance to meet her Grams side of the family in Plainview, TX. We traveled 6 hours from OKC in total and Lilly did a great job. She got to meet lots of cousins and my Aunts and Uncles.

Right before we left Lilly started to roll and she has not stopped. At first she tried and tried while Rusty and I would cheer her on, but she would never just flip on over. I can say I have never seen such a persistent child. Finally when no one was looking, we found her on her back. My Mom and I were working together at my sister's apartment and every time we would leave her in the living room by herself, she would do it. Mom finally saw it for herself and once I got home I put her on the ground until she did it for me.

Also, Rusty has successfully taught Lilly to spit! She likes to spit all the time. It was really cute for a couple of days, but she does it all the time now. Rusty thinks it's funny and has taken video of the two of them spitting away.

Clay's Wedding

Rusty's friend and cousin Clay just got married. We had a great time at his wedding, which Rusty was an usher in. Doesn't he look handsome in his tux! Lilly is wearing a skirt that I found at a craft fair. The lady that makes them is from Edmond and I think her clothes are really cute. You will have to check out her website

I just started sewing, so maybe I can learn how to make clothes for Lilly! I doubt it. I'm doing good to sew a straight seam.
