Some exciting things have been happening in the Garrett household. We got Iphones!!! I know that sounds silly but I've wanted one forever!!!! And they were definitely worth it! I've taken so many pictures with it, almost as many as when Ashtyn was first born! Speaking of, I know I say this every month, but I can't believe my baby is 7 months!!! I remember when she was only 6 weeks old and I started working, a lady at the gym told me her baby was 7 months and that sounded so old! Ashtyn is fun right now. She's very easy to get a huge smile from, and she still hasn't started the Stranger Danger stage yet, so she flashes her two bottom teeth to whoever wants to see them! Speaking of teeth, poor girl is getting 6 teeth right now!! That's right 6!!! She's getting four upper teeth and two more bottom ones. She usually sleeps all through the night but the past week has been a little rough! She'll wake up around 2, for me to put her binky back in, then 4 to be fed.... I'm hoping this little phase wont last long! Ashtyn took her first major fall yesterday :( I was helping at a garage sale, and Dave and Ashtyn came to help at the end for the clean up. I had been holding Ashtyn and put her in car seat to help. I didn't buckle her in because I thought I'd only be a minute. I had her on the sidewalk, and the next thing you know..... I hear a thud. I see Ashtyn laying belly down and lift her head, and her little nose was bleeding. My heart sank. Luckily she just got a scratch underneath her nose. Everyone says its the first of many falls, but I hate it when it's my fault. I should've just buckled her in, because I knew she's so curious right now... and just leaned a little too far forward. John and Shelley went to Italy and France and brought back this cute little beret for Ashtyn, this hat for Dave and a really cute scarf for me! Ashtyn actually left this hat on too! That's becuase I make her keep her headbands on (maybe I'm talking too soon)! We had a nice low key 4th this year. We wen to Angie and Greg's for a little bbq and a dip in the pool. Since they are leaving soon, we decided we had better at least jump off the rocks. I hate swimsuit pictures but this picture is pretty hilarious. We were trying to hit a pose... but Dave thought a canon ball was good enough....
