A Relaxing Morning -

Mommy has been feeling very nostalgic these last few days, with my 2 year birthday in a week. She is trying to do better with pictures. Yesterday morning I was being quite the show off & loving the camera...I kept asking her to take more, "again."I love my cat, Mistletoe, that Po & Nana gave me for Christmas. He is the perfect size for me & I carry him everywhere. I love to give my toys hugs & then I have Mommy give them hugs too.

I came in the living room carrying my little toy Ernie & my cat, Mistletoe, so Mommy & I reviewed names. Conversation:
Mommy: "What is his name?" Me: "Ernie"
Mommy: "What is your cat's name?" Me: "Mis-toe"
Mommy: "What is my name?" Me: "Mommy!!"
Mommy: "What is your name?" Me: "My-mul!!"


I love O'Soy yogurt! It is one of my favorite snacks right now. Quite often I want more than one! I have also discovered that I love nachoes. The other night Mommy made them with taco meat, cheese & guacamole. I ate tons of them with the meat & this makes Mommy & Daddy really happy because they love Mexican food!!

Fun Girl Weekend!

Mommy had a great weekend with her high school girlfriends! Daddy took care of me while the 4 girls spent the weekend at Julie's house. It was a fun time of talking, laughing & eating.Mommy, Julie, Elizabeth & CarrieMommy & Carrie

Pretend Play!

Mommy & Daddy have been enjoying watching me play. I have been "pretending" a lot more & doing things more intentionally.
One of my favorite toys right now is Mommy's pots & pans. I will get them out of the cabinet, set them all up on the coffee table & then have the best time taking the lids on & off & stiring & pouring.

I am 23 months old! January 2, 2009

Mommy & Daddy can hardly believe that I will be 2 in a month. I am changing so fast & they don't want to forget the things I'm doing now - Here are a few things they want to remember about me at 23 months:
*This table was Mommy's when she was little & it has been in the garage. She painted it & brought it inside the other day. I have been sitting at it constantly. I love to "cook" & play with my kitchen things. I also love puzzles! I got 2 for Christmas that make sounds - they are my favorites.
*I love to say my name, My-mul - I point at things that are mine & say, "My-mul's." I also love to look at myself in Mommy's mirror & say hi to My-mul.
*Mommy & Daddy love my spontaneous hugs that I give them.
*I am good with my manners - I say please & thank you very well.
*I am talking like crazy. I name objects all the time & repeat everything Mommy & Daddy say. I know all our family members' names. Yesterday we were reading a book & Mommy heard me say 4 words together - "airplane in the sky." That's the most words so far.
*I am a good eater! Some things I really like right now that surprise Mommy are cottage cheese, pimento cheese, guacamole, & raw carrots.
*Mommy has told me that there is a baby in her tummy. I like to point to her tummy & say, "Baby, in there."
*Yesterday I woke up kind of cranky. Mommy started singing me the song~ "Say hey, it's a good day, even if things aren't going my way. Jesus is Lord & I am saved. So, say hey, it's a good day." I loved it! I had her sing it over & over, probably 5 times. A little bit later she was driving me to MDO & I said, "good day," several times :)

13 Weeks!

Mommy's first tummy photo - 13 weeks!

Christmas Fun!

We had so much fun with family & friends this Christmas. Our travels began at Po & Nana's house. For some reason Mommy never got her camera out & now she is very disappointed in her laziness :( After enjoying several days with them, we traveled to Austin to see Mommy's Aunt Fran, Uncle Mark, Cousin Teal & Mommom & Grandpa George.Uncle Mark & Daddy took me to the Arboretum in Austin to see the marble cows. I had lots of fun."nose"A family photo before our Christmas Eve meal (which was actually on the 22nd :)I'm ready to eat!After dinner I got to be "Santa" & pass out the gifts - I did such a good job! I had fun playing with my barnyard bowling set! The bowling ball moos!Mommy with her cousin, Teal. Grandpa George, Uncle Mark & Daddy showing off their new hats! The camera flash made the emblem on the hats glow.Mommy thought it was cute how I enjoyed playing on the first stair & lining all my toys up. I like to be organized when I play. I think I get this from Mommy :)
Our third stop was Fredericksburg to Mommom & Grandpa George's house - the weather was beautiful & I loved being outside. Check out my acorn collection - once again, very organized.
I put my acorns in a straight row.

My cute reindeer that Mommom & Grandpa George got me.
On Christmas Day we went to San Antonio to have Christmas dinner at Grandpa George's son's house. I loved the Barbie car!
Our fourth stop was Lewisville to see GB & Papa, & Grandma & Grandad. Again, Mommy was lazy with the camera & has no photos :( We had a great time there too. We are so thankful to have such wonderful family!
