Update- could she be any cuter?!

Mike is graduating in a couple of weeks and we are so excited to be done with school! Good luck with finals babe! (anyone seen the office episode where Michael and Jan have a dinner party and they call each other babe like every 5 seconds :)
Look at that face! Halles just smiles and smiles all day long! Oh it touches my heart! She is so adorable and sweet and happy! As you can tell we were in the middle of a feeding, and she decided to throw her head into my spoon full of food, instead of aiming it at her mouth like usual. And although it may not look like it, her hair is growing in, slowly but shirley.
Mike loves to tease Halle (that what dads are for right?). She's getting a little too big to put into her littl toy basket :)

We had a few balloons at our house from a baby shower for my sister-in-law, and of course Halle loved them. She would get all tangled in the ribbon and then not know what to do, and then they sank by the next morning and she just crawled all around playing with them.

Merry Christmas!! ...oh i mean Happy Easter! This is what our house looked like on easter morning! Good thing i didn't spend any money on an easter dress for our little princess. We spent the day at Mike's parents house watching conference. It was such a great weekend! My favorite talks were from Elder M. Russell Ballard, Elder L. Tom Perry and Elder David A. Bednar. Look them up here. I am so grateful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and for living prophets!

I never really planned on making homemade baby food (mostly because i'm just too lazy) however, when our local grocery store had a sale on Halle's favorite- sweet potatoes- i decided i should. I made all this (over 30 oz) for $1! ONE DOLLAR! Yipee! Thats the same i spent in the past on 5 oz of gerber. Anyway, so i'm pretty excited about it and i am convince that its a good idea to do homemade- at least on some foods. I also made strawberry jam with my mother-in-law last week and it is so delicious i think i all will be gone in a couple of weeks!

Taking an awkward nap on mommy

She is so cute! I'm jealous that she is getting hair in at 6months! My kids have no chance of hair until at least a year old! Way to go with the homemade baby food! I didnt do it with Ethan because I was working and going to school full time but with the rest of our kids I totally plan on doing it! We had an enrichment the other night on it and they gave us an awesome website to use with lots of ideas for making it. Check it out at:

Oh I love her! That awkward nap picture is so funny. If her eyes were open it would look like she was posing for the camera.

Yes, I can't believe it was all snowy on Easter. I wanted to go to Temple Square and listen to the conference on the grounds in my new Easter dress, but that didn't happen. :( At least conference was awesome, though.

And yes, I've seen that Office episode. Hilarious. David and I actually have friends from Cayman. The wife is from Costa Rica and the husband from Florida. They call each other, "Baby," every other second, just like that episode!

ohhhh she is just sooo cute. I do think Brooke and Halle look more alike than any cousins on my side. The Sweeney genes are strong! I can't wait for all the THREE girls to play together. I am just getting so excited for Erin and James as well. I love the 6 month mark. They just play and play and make you laugh EVERY minute!!!! Good luck Mike on FINALS!!!!

P.S. Homemade food is THE WAY TO GO!!! I just put it in ice cube trays and then that is the right amount to mix with baby cereal plus it is always GOOD since it is frozen!!!! So cheap and so easy and so healthy!
