I'm still in awe that I have a baby girl. You're not such a "baby" anymore. Sweetheart, Tomorrow is your birthday and you are ONE! I am so shocked. This year has been one amazing roller coaster ride! You went from being a very hard newborn to the most easy going, perfect baby girl a mommy could ask for. I have had an amazing time being your mommy and I can't wait for more hugs and kisses, more milestones and even more BUTT changes. :) I love you so much. I would do anything for you. You are my strength, my light and my entire world. I hope that you have a great birthday baby girl!

Here are some of the things you're up to these days!

*You got your puppy Koda as an early Christmas present. You love him!

*You are walking baby girl! You took your first steps at Grandma and Grandpa's. Right to Grandpa of course.

*Goes up the stairs with no help. but you think you can just walk right off the top stair (to come back down) with no help. Scares mommy to death!

*You absolutely LOVE books. You love to turn the pages, look at the pictures and you love the stories.

*You have 3 1/2 teeth. I say 1/2 because that top left tooth is just not comin' through!

*We tried whole milk for a bit but it seems like your body didn't take it very well. We'll try again soon. *update. seems like you're taking it fine this time!

*You eat whatever mom and dad eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

*You are quite the daredevil! We've caught you a few times just diving off the couch head first.

*You love food. You eat pretty much everything without choking. Mom just has to make sure the bites are small enough.

*You love to be tossed up into the air.

*You love being hung upside down by dad.

*You scream for our attention and then do something silly when we look. My favorite is when you "wink" like dad. You just blink both eyes.

*You are the biggest FAKER! You can fake laugh, fake cry, fake cough and it's all so funny!

*You sleep great through the night! You've been great at this since probably 5 months old!

*You wear size 4 shoes but not very often because you're feet are chunky!!

*You love to push your buggy cars around on the floor. Sometimes I think you even make car noises!

*You play a great game of tug o' war with Koda.

*You LOVE the train Grandma Shelly and Brian got you for Christmas!

*You can growl like Koda and it's very cute!

*You give a great high five! and afterward, you're so proud of yourself you clap!

*You love the conversations you and Grandma Theresa have.

*You spend so much time with Grandma Theresa that you get more sad when she leaves than when mommy or daddy leaves!

*You hold out a toy to show us, sometimes share it and sometimes you cry if you were just trying to show us.

*You can understand a lot more than you can say. You're not a big talker right now but you listen if we ask you to do something.

*You absolutely LOVE going to the store with mommy.

There is so much more that you do everyday.
You're an amazing addition to our family
and I'm so glad that we've been blessed with such an amazing daughter!
I love you baby!

I'm here.
Always have been.
Always will be.

cups just to save a few bux on soda.

random sweet tooth, he can eat like 3 king size candy bars in a row.

today at lunch...

Ya know how I know I'm never satisfied??

Today as I'm getting my lunch, I pull up to the drive-thru at Wendy's and I tell him my order he says **literally talking 100 MPH**

"small, medium or large?"

I say "small" and he gives me the total.

I pull forward and before I'm anywhere near the window the girl is hanging out yelling

"HI! $4.93"

so I give her the money and she hands me my change.

I look up to start pulling forward and my bag of food is already hanging out of the other window. I reach the window and the lady says

"here ya go!"

practically throwing the bag in my face with the drink following close behind. I drive away
and I'm sooo peeved! Do you know why?!!!

Because they talked, took my money and gave me my food TOO fast?!!

Bah hahaha... How does that even make sense??
Had they have been too slow I would have been upset too!

Moral of the story?
I'm a total brat and I'm hard to please.

*food was good though ;)*

I just can't figure it out..
I can't figure out why I'm in such a blogging slump..
I've got things to say,
I could blog if I actually felt like it but.... I just don't.

What's up with that?
