I'm Ready Coach

Before we left for vacation I made these for me and A to wear at Brian's games.

Of course our little ham soaked up the attention she got from the team and fans and was ready to get out on that field to play! 

(I'm ready to play, coach!)

Our vacation was fun as well as stressful and tiring! I almost need a vacation from my vacation. Not really but this trip was much more exhausting than our last trip now that A is wanting to explore everything! She seriously doesn't keep still unless she is sleeping and since everything was different from her normal routine, she didn't do much of that either! It was still fun to do something different and watch our social butterfly wave hi and bye to everyone she came across. 

(What a ham!)

(It doesn't matter that you're trying to get my back, I MUST look at the camera!)

(Ok, fine, I'll take another picture...)

We also got to watch a few good games of baseball and see B in action. All in all it was a good trip but remind me never to drive back from Vegas on a holiday! Don't know what we were thinking but after almost 7 hours in the car, I was happy to be home!

Ten Months

Baby girl, you are not so much a baby anymore. You are growing up so quickly and becoming so independent! Lately you've gotten so bold and fearless when it comes to exploring and finding new things to do, and you're pretty tough when you inevitably stumble and fall.

Your newest "trick" is to stand by yourself until you realize what is happening then you start squatting in order to get down where you're most comfortable. It's really cute. You are so proud when we notice and cheer you on! I suppose that means you'll be walking sooner than later. Then it will all be over. You already don't keep still as it is...I can't imagine what you'll be like once you're walking! 

You are still our tiny girl, so petite, but such a BIG personality! You continue to fill a room with your joy and our hearts with your love. My favorite thing you've started doing is taking a break while you are playing to come over to one of us and just rest your head on our shoulder. It melts my heart every time. At your last doctor's appointment, you weighed in at a whopping 17.5lbs (4th percentile!) and 28in. long (29th percentile). Hehe. You are wearing mostly 6-9 month sizes but can still fit in a few 3 month dresses and tops. You still don't have any teeth but the doctor wasn't concerned...she said she's seen some babies get their first tooth at 18 months! Hopefully you'll get some before then! :)

As the months fly by we're just trying to soak it all in because we know it will be gone before we know it. I still can't believe that we will shortly be celebrating your first birthday!! Yikes! I can't wait to see what the next month brings! We love you, baby girl.

Getting Ready...

We're getting ready for our mini vacation this weekend. The house is clean (because I hate coming back from vacation to messy house), the bags are packed, and the camera is charged. There's gas in the car and the weather is beautiful. See you all in a few days! Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday & Happy Memorial Day!

Friday Favorite

I know, I know. I haven't been posting anything lately. I'm overwhelmed with all the projects I want to do and need to just pick somewhere to start. Until then, this lady keeps me entertained and busy!

Apparently sitting up and eating is just too hard. She needed to lie down for a minute. Oh and the food on the face? She couldn't be bothered to take the time to move it so she just let it sit there! Silly girl.

Posin' for the camera...again :)

Happy Friday!
