Good Times and Heartache

So, it's been a while since I updated our blog. A lot has been going on in the Miner household. Here is a little recap of the last 7 month.

We went to Austin for Harper's baptism. We were all so excited that Brock was Harper's godfather. We definitely wouldn't have missed it. We decided to fly because I really didn't want to chance the trip in the car. A 7 hour drive with Allie doesn't always end too good. But she did great on the flight and entertained everyone that would listen.

We celebrated Mother's day with all our families. Allie had her gymnastics Olympics. That was the cutest thing I have ever been too. She absolutely loved all the attention and truly believe that everyone was there to see her and only her.

June 2nd, Brock and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. The same night I had a miscarriage with Baby Miner #2. What an anniversary present, huh!! It was a complete surprise to both of us and also to Dr. Hager. I had just been to see her for a check up and Baby Miner was really strong. I was 11 weeks along and didn't think that this would ever happen. My due date was December 24th. It is still taking me some time to get over this loss but I am getting there. The pain does go away, right??

We also had lots of visitors this month. Liam, Harper and Peyton all came to play. Summer Fun!!

Not much happened in July. We just enjoyed the summer weather. Went to the park and played in the pool. We went dancing at the Czech Hall for my grandpa's 80th birthday. FUN TIMES!!

Brock and I went to Austin so that Jill and I could celebrate our 29th Birthday together. I still can not believe that we are this old and that next year we will actually be 30!! Times surely flies. We were the first to see John and Jill's new house. They moved in the same weekend. It is a beautiful house and made me very jealous. The pic I did get of the outside does not do it justice. Allie stayed home with Nani and Geoff.


Allie turned 2 on September 9th. We had her birthday party at the house that weekend. I'll post more of her birthday later. Cara and Peyton made the trip up for the party. We were so happy to see them. Cara took some great pictures..

More to come later. I promise to do a better job on keeping up with this thing. It is tough sometimes though.

My Easter Bunny

Allie had an Easter party at gymnastics tonight. Her teacher had an Easter egg hunt set up for the kids and rabbit ears to wear so that the parents could take pictures. I of course forgot my camera because I forgot all about the Easter Day. Brock had his phone so these are the best he got. I have to say I love, love the last picture of her. She is such a ham for the camera...

18 Months and Gymnastics

So, I'm a little late with this post but Allie turned 18 months a few weeks back. Went to the doc and no shots!!! Yeah, i was extremely excited about that. She doesn't have to go back until her 2 year check up. Allie is on the small side of the scale as we all know. She weighed 21.11oz and was 30 1/4 inches tall. 5 to 10% in both. Her head size is still in the 75%.

Allie and I started a Mom and tot gymnastics class last week. Allie had the best time. Her favorite was running across the trampoline. She would run as fast as she could and then roll off the mat as they are supposed to do. They are having an "Olympics" in May that she gets to participate in. Now I have to find her a leotard that fits. How cute!!! Here are a few pics that Brock took at our class.... We have class tonight and Allie is so excited.

Play Dates

Liam and Aunt Haylie came over the other night for a play date. These two kids usually play pretty good together, but for some reason Allie wasn't having it. It was driving her crazy to see Liam playing with all her toys. She kept running after him and trying to take whatever he had. She would then look at Haylie and myself to see if we would do something.

All night they wanted to play with these dumb Thunder sticks. They kept attaching each other, Haylie and myself.

Here's Allie saying " Will you please get him out of my toy"

My Allie

Just some more pictures of my little Allie. She sure is growing and it's crazy to think that next week she will be 18 months. Where has the time gone?????

She loves, loves wearing Brock and I shoes.

She loves looking at herself in the mirror. She makes the funniest faces. The other day I saw her looking at herself in this mirror holding a book. I guess she wanted to see what she looked like reading. I was laughing so hard......She is so silly and cute.

This is what Brock and Allie got me for Valentines day. A mouse pad and coffee mug for me to take to work. So cute.......

My Visit with Cara

Yes, it has been a while since I have written a post. It's been a little busy in the Miner household. The first weekend in February I went to Florida to visit with Cara before Peyton arrives. It was mostly a girls weekend and I had a blast. We went out to dinner for Cara's 29th birthday to the Melting pot. Friday we laid out at the pool all day and drank. :) I had some delicious cocktails, and Cara has the virgin alternatives. My body also hasn't seen the sun in like 2 years, so needless to say I got burnt!! They live in a retirement community, and I have to say that I have never ever seen that many old wrinkly bodies in 2 pieces in my life. Man I sure hope I can retire that way. We also went and saw the movie "Dear John". Shopped a little and did a whole lot of nothing.. My favorite vacations..... Here are a few pics from my visit.

Yes, Cara and I had to go down the slides.

My lunch....

The next time I see these two, they will be parents. I am so excited to meet Peyton.

Yeah, they have alligator everywhere in their community. Freaked me out a little.
