Summertime Fun

I've been meaning to update this thing every week, but it somehow never happens. We've had a fun month with lots of "field trips". And a lot of Mommy and Me time since John has been out of town for 2 weeks. Check out our adventures...

Impromptu playdate at MOSH with Karin and her kiddos (Maddie & Jaxon) and Jamie and her little one (Michael)

Girl's day at the zoo and splash pad (check out her awesome shirt that Kristin and I made!)

Trip to visit one of my Bama BF's and her little guys, Wyatt and Hudson

I've also been busy playing with my applique machine with Kristin!
shirts for the boys and their cousins

shirts for my pledge sister x2, Melanie

burp cloths for a friend of John's

burp cloths for one of the OT's I work with, Jenna

Stay tuned for the (gulp!) 19 month update and the visit from some of my family!

18 Months!

I seriously cannot believe that my baby is 1 1/2 years old! Her personality shines through more and more everyday. I absolutely love hearing her talk more and more, discover new things, and seeing her throw fewer tantrums! :-) She has her 18 month appointment in the morning, so I'll have to add in her growth info tomorrow. Here are her monthly facts:

*She has figured out how to slide on her little side all by herself. She's been able to climb up it for awhile but had trouble figuring out how and where to sit down.

*She became obsessed with the word "boo boo" for awhile after she got a blister on her foot. She would take her shoe off, point to it, and say (in the most pitiful voice), "boo boo".

*She's still not a great eater but will surprise you every once in awhile.

*She loves milk and water but could care less about juice.

*She's been paci-free for 2 weeks. The first couple of days were bad, but she doesn't look, cry, or ask for it anymore.

*When we went back to the ENT for a check-up, we discovered that her right tube had fallen out. They'll watch the hole for 3-6 months to decide if they'll put another tube in. Yea! More doctor's appointments! (can you hear the sarcasm dripping off my words?)

*Her favorite shows are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and The Fresh Beat Band. She will dance and try to sing along with TFBB--so cute!

*She will sometimes give you a kiss on the lips when you ask for a kiss.

*She can show you her teeth, fingernails, toes, toenails, and back.

*She's not really a fan of brushing her teeth. She loves to chew on the toothbrush though (I'm hoping that kind of gets those teeth clean...).

*Her new favorite activity is walks in her wagon with Daddy.

*She calls John "Daddy" now and alternates between "Mommy" (aka "Mommmmm-meee!!")
and "Mama" for me.

(Big thanks to Miss Natalie for the super cute pj's!!)
