One Hard Day

Today was One Hard Day

This day is not about me. This day is about a very dear friend of mine and her little girl. Her little girl who only survived for three minutes.

I want to give you the details, but I cannot. You can get more information on my facebook because I shared this beautiful woman's story (via her blog) there. Her faith and strength in this time has seriously moved me. God is working through that family and through that little girl's life. It's beautiful and terrible at the same time. 

Please pray for this family. Please.

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day Funday!

We had a very interesting day for sure. Baby girl got up early, but then ate breakfast and went immediately back to sleep. Happy Memorial Day to Mommy and Daddy! So we followed her example and went back to bed. She actually took 3 naps on Memorial Day - we just wore her out playing all day! The husb and I bought a kitty pool the Saturday before so we went to work blowing it up and filling it with water for some swim time after lunch. But....

Sunday my super awesome husband was playing Ultimate Frisbee (which he is amazing at, he runs like a swan I've been told) and decided to lay out for a rogue disc. While the scrapes will heal in plenty of time, he tore a ligament in his shoulder. So he spent a large portion of the day at the doc in the box getting x-ray'd.

RB also decided that at first look, the pool was from a dark and terrible place. I think the water was too cold. So she took a second nap of the day, then we tried again and found the pool a much more welcoming place! So great! Despite the fact that, at some point, I stepped in fire ants and my feet are now covered with Benedryl cream, it was worth it. I only wish I knew where the ants came from so I could get rid of them. 

The husb did get to come home, we grilled together, this pregnant woman spent some quality time in the bathroom (ugh!), and then we watched Harry Potter 6 (watched 5 the day before) after the babe went to bed. Enjoy some pictures!!

Toys make the pool much better!

This might have been a great idea

Sun comes out - hat switch!

What's new for month fourteen:

  • She can walk 5-10 steps unaccompanied! She is increasingly mobile!
  • She can say mama, dada, ball, cheese, Chaz (my parents' dog), and will try to say almost anything if you say it to her enough times. i.e. "mote" for remote - Her favorite word, however, is 'noooo'.
  • She likes to take things apart and put them back together
  • She is getting more independent although I have to say that when I'm gone for a bit she is very clingy when I get back. 
  • She is trying to feed herself with a spoon sometimes (but don't try it when she's really hungry - that is a deal breaker)! 
  • She is finally crawling on all fours.
  • She is a chatter box and seems to really be trying to say real things.
  • I had to buy a mattress cover because she has become very into her own poop.
  • She is obsessed with tongues - hers, yours, mine, anyone's
  • Girl-friend still loves to sleep. Do not try some fancy ritual with her because when it's time for bed, it is time for bed.
  • She is getting really into bath time.
  • She is obsessed with reading! She even tries to read through a book herself.
  • She is getting more picky with what she eats. 
  • She loves to sit outside until Cal gets home and then run to him when he gets out of the car

  • She can click her tongue, making super cute noises.
  • She, like her mommy, has an opinion about everything. Everything. 
  • Latest food love: hot dogs
