Linds had a digital water camera and it was so much fun to play with.
It's suprisingly hard to take a good underwater photo.
Thanks, guys! We had so much fun!
The reason for this ridiculous move was because I wanted to send birthday thank you cards to everyone saying something about keeping her little hands busy with the great toys we received.
We started out with the two hand card.
It got ugly pretty fast, so we went to the one hand card.

Grandma had to go eat and rest a little way through the party, but Lily had to do the same thing!
It was wonderful! Congrats, Grandma and Grandpa Stephenson! Hope I'm surrounded by such love on my 65th wedding anniversary!
Moms, how do you get your child to go to sleep when they start moving around and playing in their crib!? She was up "playing" and fussing for almost 3 hours last night!

This is the second mobile blogger software I have downloaded. The first was defective. While this one doesn't have great reviews, hopefully if will improve since google made it. The other options had worse reviews...minus the one that didn't work right.
So, this is a test of the blogger mobile app. Hope it works.
Anyone have experience or recommendations?
Ps the pictures are just to test quality. They are Lily playing in the sawdust at my work party. She got fruit snacks and $.75!

We're getting some assistance for her gross motor skills, but her language, fine motor skills and eating habits are great. It's SO fun to see her learn and grow! She's at such a squirmy, active, and fun age. I love her more and more eat day!
Sure enough, I searched the US Consumer Public Safety Commission and they released not only one recall for the drop side, but also another later one for the metal frame, that can break. Ha! Good to realize after using this crib for 10 months.
Here's the reason it became a debacle: I called Babies R Us and they said to call the corporate Customer Service. I called them and one guy said the crib wasn't recalled. I knew it was! Frustrated, I called again and another woman was much more helpful. She created a ticket and said even though she didn't see it as recalled, someone would look into it and get back to me within 10 business days. Ugh. And she said not to use the crib anymore. Riiiiight. Where is my baby supposed to sleep. I don't know why I thought to call Babies R Us first. I asked Leathra and she said she had purchased the crib at Walmart. I called the Springville Walmart and they said it wasn't on the list of recalled cribs. Ahh! I called the corporate Walmart and they said it was recalled and if the location had issues, the CSM could call corporate to confirm. I then called the Orem Walmart and they said they had it listed as recalled and that I had to bring the whole recalled crib into the store. Ok, sucks, but will do.
I packed up the crib by myself and put it in the car. When James got home we had to take two cars to Walmart. I looked up what cribs they sold at the Walmart stores and they had way better options at Springville. Too bad cause Orem was way nicer on the phone. Whatever, we wanted more options so we went to Springville. We waited in line for 30 minutes and then another 20 to have the person confirm that it was recalled. Man, the Customer Service Manager was a beast. He did not care about anyone but himself. Grrrr... but after almost an hour, we got a gift card for $129. Woot!
For Lily's birthday, Grammy gave us some money to get a new crib!
So, we decided to splurge on the crib and dresser/changer combo. It was only about $40 more than the crib alone. Sweet!
Woot! Then, we put together the dresser. That took FOREVER.
At midnight, we finished! Unfortunately, we forgot to put the nightlight back. Lily woke up freaked out at 2 and then again at 4. New room, no light. Poor mom.
In the end, we are so grateful to have such wonderful family to help us get Lily such nice things! She loves them!

PS What kind of crazy person thought it was a good idea to make a bikini swimsuit for a baby? Not only was it rolling up the entire time, but her swim diaper also sticks out. We love cute hand-me-downs, but this one is going to be retired.
