Family Pictures

So for those of you who don't know we have moved to Mesa and are loving it here (minus the HOT weather, definitely ready for it to dip below the hundreds).

We really like our new ward everyone here is so friendly, however it is sooo large that we feel a little lost in the crowd.  Making friends has never been one of my strong suits because I am shy and at times I think socially retarded haha.  Anyways, my goal is to overcome that and move on with life and make new friends.

Anyways, our new ward does a photo directory (which I think is genius in such a large ward).  They had access to a professional photographer that came and took pictures of each family for FREE!!!! (my favorite form of payment :)  So he was really nice with us and took a picture of Lynners.  In my opinion I thought he did a great job minus my own self critical points on myself, but Matt and Lynlee look great.  Truthfully I think Lynlee is the best looking one. Here they are the Matt and Nikki Shelton Family:

She was talking that is why she is not smiling and her hand is giving an almost thumbs up.

Do you think she is a mama's girl? She had to make sure she was touching me the whole time it was pretty cute.

I am going through a hair thing right now.  Should I go back to a short A-line?  I really liked it before.  Some comments would be GREAT!!!  thanks and have a great day.

Catch up

I have been terrible at keeping this blog updated.  A lot has happened since we moved into our new house.  There are some things that we need to get before we can fully unpack such as: the kitchen is small and so we need to buy a roll away kitchen island and we have a lot of books and no book shelve, and we need a lawn mower. This will be our first weekend in our house which I am pretty excited about.  I really love our new neighborhood and ward.

Our insurance took awhile to get going because apparently we had been added to the wrong plan and so we had to change it to the correct one.  That being said I was finally able to get Lynners into a doctor.  I have been worried about her weight.  Her stats at 10 months are : 15 lbs 7 oz (not on the charts), 27 inches (25th percentile) and her head is between the 25th and 50th percentile.  What bothers me about her weight gain is that she eats sooooo much food.  Well balanced diet too.  She gets her full serving of fruits and veggies along with her meats and carbs.  The only advice the doc gave was to have her drink formula (which I told her we have tried multiple times and she REFUSES it). So I asked about introducing whole milk and she was not a fan of that idea which I think I will do anyways.  I am not a big fan of the pediatrician so I think I will try another doctor :(

Good news is that she is developing right on track.  She pulls herself up and cruises on furniture and can even stand by herself and can almost take a step, but she is not ready for that yet.  She points to things.  Talks up a storm, but can say nothing understandable except dada.  LOVES playing with her toys especially when they are all in her basket and she can pull them all out.  LOVES pulling her books off of the shelves.  Her favorite toy is keys.  She is exploring everything.  She loves music: singing in church, pushing her toys that have music, and listening to the radio with mommy.  Even though she is gaining weight slowly she is our little girl and we love her more than anything.  Wish us luck for helping her pack on the pounds.

We were able to make it to a wedding of a really good college friend Jocelyn.  It was totally worth the whirlwind trip to Utah.  It was a beautiful wedding with a beautiful bride and groom.  Twelve hours in a car is way to long, but I can say we have the best ten month baby ever.  She was sooo incredibly good.  Didn't cry at all.  Just little whimpers every now and then, but only when she was waking up and trying to fall asleep.

That is the Sheltons for now I am sure there is more left out, but if I don't blog right away I forget.  Here is to trying to keep things current.  Oh and sorry for no pictures can't remember where I put the camera :/
