Chase Robert,
You are the one piece of the puzzle
That I've always been missing.
You are my baby
and you always will be!
Sorry I got all mushy there for a minute.
I love this picture of Chase. It's the perfect image of him.
It's how I will remember him when I'm looking back and thinking of my baby.
He's my heart. And if you've got a problem with him, then you've got one with me! :)

It's Been Too Long!

It's been way too long since I've posted pictures of Chase. So here are the most recent few:
Chase is becoming more brave everyday. He likes to let go of furniture when he's walking now, but he's not fully walking yet. Probably before his first birthday.

Speaking of birthdays, Chase's party will be on Jan. 26th (Sat), so if you'd like to come help us celebrate, you're invited. More details to come later on.

Time For An Update

It's been for-eva since I've blogged. I've been pretty busy. I had three seperate Thanksgivings! It was crazy, but fun. Chase is starting to take steps here and there, but he doesn't seem too interested in walking yet. I've been working, which is going good. Not much else to report. I'm a pretty boring person. Oh yes, I forgot, Camille told me that I should start a blog for my photography, so look for that in the near-future. Also, if anyone out there wants to have photos taken for the holidays, let me know.

24 October 2007


So, we finally got a costume for Chase. He's gonna be sooooo cute! Here are a few pics that I took:


Ok, here are some Chasey pics. Enjoy!

20 October 2007


I've been way bad at updating. OOOPS! :P So, the new Whole Foods Market on Ray and the 101 is opening on October 26, 2007! I finally have a "home"! Everyone who is able should stop by. It's going to be fabulous.
Chase Update:
He's getting ginormous! He has 6 teeth now, and he loves to bite. I need to get some more pics on here, but it'll have to be another time. Just thought that I would update.

Oh yeah.............


09 October 2007


It's been awhile since my last update. Here goes. Chase is getting bigger everyday, and I have to chase him around, which in turn, had slowed down my photo taking. He has 5 teeth! Plus his pedi said that his molars are coming in! YIKES!!!!!!! I don't know what I'm going to dress him up as for halloween, but I'll think of something. I am also training again. It's pretty boring, but whatever. At least I'm getting paid. :P That's it for now. Hopefully I'll be able to post again with more pics. NIGHT!

Our Little Friend

This evening, while Ian was cleaning out his car, he found a praying mantis! I had never seen one before, and I wanted to see how close my camera could take a picture while still maintaining good quality. This is the finished product:

Chase Robert

I was looking at him while he was sleeping and I couldn't believe how big he is! His feet are huge, he has big hands, and he's really tall. I'm so lucky that I've been blessed with this child. I'm excited to see what he's like as a little boy. I know that he's going to be one of the smartest kids in his class, but he has this light in his eyes that people lose as they grow older. I don't want him to ever lose that light, and I'm going to try my hardest to make sure that it never happens. When you have a child, you realize how precious every moment is. I want to be here for him and I want give him everything that I possibly can and more. My goal is to give him a life that is better than what I had. Don't get me wrong, I've had a good life filled with family that loves me. He's just going to have it better. I already know that he's going to be one of the smartest kids out there, and I know that he's meant to do something great. I'm going to make sure that he gets there. Ok, enough mushy stuff! Here are some pics of my little guy:

21 September 2007


I just found out about this show!
It's radtacularly awesome. It's Canadian, and Lord know I ♥ Canada! I'm moving there one day. I just thought that I would let all of you in Blogland know about Degrassi. It's lovely. ENJOY!

13 September 2007


Chase is **officially** pulling himself up to his feet now. I can't believe it. He's growing up too fast, and it makes me sad. :( Ok, here are some pics for proof.

If I didn't have bad luck......

I wouldn't have any luck at all! Man, it seems that I've pissed off God, Karma, Allah, or whatever/whoever it is that runs this universe of ours. As some of you know, I am currently employed with Whole Foods. The store was slated to open on Sept. 26th, then they said "at the worst Sept. 29th." BS. Yesterday they (when I say "they", I mean the Store Leadership) told us that contruction will not be done until Oct. 17th! Which in turn means that I won't have training again until Oct. 1st, which means that I am once again BROKE. Honestly, I must have been really evil in a past life. I can't catch a break. I'm sick of it. I'm mad. I don't understand. Am I not a good person? I take care of my husband and my son. Whoever said "money can't buy happiness" was sorely mistaken. Don't be mistaken, I'm aware that construction takes time, but it still sucks. I don't think that we (my little family) can make it on one income. There is a silver lining, however. I get to stay home with my little guy for 18 days. YAY!

Two words concerning Britney Spears' performance at the MTV VMA's on Sunday night: OYE VEY!!!!! If you watched a second of it, you know what I mean.....

09 September 2007

It's Been Awhile.....

It's been awhile since the last time that I posted. This is mostly due to the fact that I've been in training for my RAD-TACULAR job Whole Foods! I'm so unbelievably excited for this store to open!
On another note, Mr. Chase is now **officially** climbing the stairs! He just about gives me a heart attack, so I try not to let him crawl around too much just because I don't want him to hurt himself.
Of course, I cannot post without adding some photos of my little guy, so here they are. I hope all of you in blogland enjoy them.....

Baby Mohawks!

For awhile Chase had no hair, but it's finally growing in, so I wanted to see what a baby mohawk would look like on him:

BTW: I think that his hair is going to be dark blonde, but Ian thinks it'll be brown.

Here is Jayci, who we think Chase looks a bit like:

25 August 2007


We went to Freestone Park this afternoon, but they didn't have baby swings (!) and it was too humid for poor little Chase. I did get a couple of pics:

Chase didn't really like the grass. The moment his dad put him down he screamed. It was kind of funny, but I felt bad at the same time. He was eyeing the ducks though. He's such a good little model! :)
SO I went to orientation for Whole Foods on Friday. It's going to be awesome! The store is going to be 60,000 sq. ft. which is ginormous! I'm actually really excited for this.
Also....if anyone wants some pictures of their babies, themselves, or their families FOR FREE please please please call me or email me (purplellama61@yahoo.com). I really would love to take pics for anyone AND I really need the experience to build up my portfolio. THANKS!

Outdoor Excursion

I decided that I wanted some pictures of Chase in natural light, so we went to the front yard. It was way way hot. Like, 110 degrees! So, we only got to stay outside for 5 or 10 minutes. I didn't want my little white baby to melt. Nonetheless, I got some good ones:

It don't lie

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.
You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.
While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.
You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

20 August 2007


I'm so happy to say that I'm finally done at Scottsdale Healthcare. Now on to Wholefoods Market! I'm so excited to be working for a laid back company. I get to wear whatever I want. Which is ├╝ber rad. I will miss my friends at SHC, mostly Ben, but at least Molly is going with me to Wholefoods.

SO we had my grandma's 60th B-day party. It was originally planned as a surprise party, but things change. It was fun, she got some nice gifts, and I got some sweet pictures.

17 August 2007

It's Been So Long

It's been awhile since I've updated. Not much has been happening. Chase is getting bigger everyday and he's almost crawling! We really need to baby-proof our condo. There's really not much else to tell. Just working and chilling with the peeps.

(Almost)Girls Night Out!

So, yesterday was Heather's birthday, and we decided that we were going to go to the hookah bar, then back to my house for drinks. It was only Heather, Ian and I at the hookah bar, but Carly came over to my house afterwards. We had so much fun. I almost forgot how much fun it is to hang out with these girls! I hope that we do it again soon! Not too soon though, cause my head hurts today.
