i'm 18 months old...

well, sort of... i turned 18 months old at the beginning of february, so it's close enough. we went to have my pictures made & i could hardly stand still. mommy & daddy were quite impressed with the photographer's ability to get any good shots of me. what do you think?

my fun day...

the x-terra was in need of some engine work, so mommy & i met grammy at the nissan place this morning. while they fixed the car, we all went back to grammy & pappy's house. we just played games, sang songs, & played with the cat. i have also discovered this little stool that is a perfect size for me to sit on. so i sat on it for a while today & talked to this "girl." she is one of the dolls that my great-grandma made & i still like to say, "hello, girl!" as you can see, my cold is still hanging around. but someone told mommy about these "boogie-wipe" things & now i don't get so upset when mommy has to clean my crusty nose.

happy 400...

this is my 400th post since the start of this blog! this is just a fun little video of me pushing around this toy. i've had the toy for a while & i enjoy all the flip-flaps & spinny things. but recently i have also learned to enjoy pushing it around! and i am getting pretty good at adjusting when i run into things.

fun with grandmommie, part 2...

here are some more pictures from my weekend with grandmommie. we found a bunch of orange balloons at spring park -- i guess someone had a party earlier in the day. some of the other children were really sweet & let me have a balloon. (i was REALLY sad when i couldn't get one at first!) once i had my balloon, i did NOT want to let it go!











here are some pictures from time at the house. we read books & played peekaboo, but my favorite thing to do was to look at these flowers. i enjoyed grandmommie telling me the colors of each flower.

fun with grandmommie...

we went to see grandmommie in tuscumbia this weekend. the weather was so beautiful on sunday & we went to spring park. i got to swing for a while, play peekaboo around huge trees, & i also had fun watching the ducks & geese & other children. fresh air is great!

fun with grammy...

here are some shots from playtime with grammy. i enjoy this book of farm animals & i'll look at you so you can tell me the animal sounds. and one drawer in the kitchen is just for me! (well, i kind of took it over...)











this video shows us playing peekaboo, which is definitely a favorite game of mine now. make sure you have your volume turned on for this one... it's funny!

a day on the town, part 2...

after our trip to the mall yesterday, we also stopped at direct buy because daddy needed to research some things. at first mommy & i strolled around the showroom & it seemed like the other adults were not too happy that a silly little girl was in a place like that. then someone told us that there is a pLayRoOM! so mommy & i went in there & shut the door! then i could run around freely & be loud. i just like to keep busy. it was great fun!

a day on the town...

on tuesday, i went to penney's to have my 18-month-old pictures made. that was a little stressful because i do not like to stand still for very long. but the photographer got some good shots & i will share them with you when we get the pics back. after the photo shoot, we hung around at the mall for a bit. i ate chick-fil-a for lunch & even got to ride the merry-go-round! i chose to ride the frog because he is green like my dress.

just a little snow...

it has snowed several times at our house recently. either i have been asleep or mommy & daddy have been working every time it has snowed. so there's not much snow left this morning, but i wanted to see it anyway. first i saw it from inside the house -- the ground looked strange, being all white. then mommy & i went out for a few minutes, until i fell down & got wet. then it wasn't so fun anymore.

tub time...

here are some pics from my bath last night. you can still see traces of my ravioli dinner on my face. i am really beginning to enjoy my raviolis & i'll eat them even without the oranges.











i have plenty of toys in the tub, but my favorite is the cup that mommy uses to rinse the soap off of me. i like her to fill it up & then pour the water out -- and i try to catch the water!

now serving pizza pizza...

WOW! the blog is finally accepting video again. remember the "pizza,pizza" story from a week or so ago? well, here's the video that goes with it. it is pretty silly.

sweet & silly...

here i am with my old friend scout. somehow, his switch got turned off but we didnt' realize it. he is much more lively now. these other pics are from a game of peek-a-boo with mommy today. i put the blanket over my head & then mommy can't find me. when she asks "where is MK?" then i take the blanket down & giggle. and please excuse the stains on my shirt... i actually eat mini raviolis now, but they are a bit messy.

making plans for the future...

these pictures are just some random shots from today. but the big news is that i visited the mother's day out program that i will be attending this fall. mommy chose the program at our old church (st mark UMC) because grammy will be taking me to school for half of the days. so we needed to choose a school close to her too. there will be 2 teachers for my class & 9 other children besides me. mommy & daddy are glad to have known my teacher, ms. marie, for a really long time. the director already gave us an outline of the study units. i will learn about all kinds of things, like leaves, snowflakes, butterflies & baby Jesus. i will attend class on tuesdays & thursdays, from 9am to 1pm. we are pretty excited about it!

a day with grammy...










here are some pics from my day with grammy today. some of the fun things i like to do are walking underneath people's legs & putting blocks into holes. i am talking much more now, & i may even be trying to say "MK".

boogly fun at sumatanga...

we went to camp sumatanga this afternoon. mommy & daddy's old church is having their family life retreat this weekend & so we went to visit everyone for a few hours. i did get a little cranky, so mommy took me to a less crowded area where i could run & play.



we went to a long hallway downstairs & there were all these columns. mommy would hide behind a column & then call for me to come find her. then she'd jump out & say, "boogly, boogly!" that is the silly sound that my dog scout likes to make & it makes me laugh. then grammy came down too & we all played peek-a-boo around the columns.










also, notice the ducky that i am holding in these pictures. it my new favorite thing to clutch onto. and i even try to tell mommy & daddy that he is an "uck" -- this morning when i woke up & mommy came in the room, duck was lying in my bed with me. i reached over & grabbed him & said, "uck!"
