Almost ONE!

So once again, this is LONG overdue!! =) Being a mommy to a now "toddler" is quite the busy job! I need to try to make more time to update on here- but mostly I have been "vlogging" her monthly updates on You Tube! But here I am to fill you in on my almost 1 year old little girl!

Its really hard to believe that this time last year i was WAY preggo and wondering how much longer it would be b4 i got to meet my little lovey and see how sweet her little face would be! and now 1 year later im chasing her around the house and hearing her laugh and scream as she tries so hard to run away! She is such a busy little baby! discovering something new everyday! she has started walking as i just mentioned- which is too cute! she holds her hands up beside her shoulders and im wondering if she will always do this? lol she LOVES patty cake and Peek-a-boo. She also picks up on alot of what we say. Understanding most of the questions we ask and quite often giving us some kind of 1 year old answer. her hair is getting really long- i cant bring myself to get it cut yet!! =) she LOVES kitty cats which is a little odd because we have 2 dogs! she also likes books, babys, make-up, and jewelery! which i couldn't be more excited to see! Her personality is just bursting out every inch of her being!!

Lily is wearing size 3 diapers
Down to 3 bottles a day- 4oz each 1/2 milk 1/2 formula
Eats EVERYTHING we eat
FAVORITE FOODS: pasta *of any kind* and fruit! 
Wearing 9 or 12 months clothing
LOVES to talk-
COULDN'T BE MORE CUTER!!! I totally LOVE this mommy-hood thing- i really think it gets better everyday!!
I will post another blog after her 1st birthday which is FRIDAY!! *4th* and Saturday will be the party!! not going to spill anything YET about either day!! you will just have to check back next week so see what happens!! <3 until next time!!

Long over due!

So this is long over due- but this month as been SUPER busy and crazy for us!! Lily is 9months old now!! i cant believe it- mostly i cant believe she will be 1 in 3 months!! =( makes me sad but super excited for all the new, FUN stuff she will be doing!! At 9 months and 1 weeks and 1 day old- after a LONG drive home from Alabama Lily took her FIRST steps!! i was soooo proud- and so was she!! she looked up at me with those big blue eyes and i could just feel the amazement she had at what she had just done!! shes not "Walking" but will take 4-5 steps at a time with mommy or daddy coaching!! I always thought she would walk early- she has done ALOT early- but seeing your baby walk for the first time is like no other feeling!! i can actually visualize the toddler stage now~ WOW!

Lily is still is size 2 diapers! She only weighs 14.5lbs- and is about 26in long. still my little peanut! <3 BUT the doctor was a little concerned about the fact that she had only gained 1lb since her 6month check-up- soooo unfortunately we had to start her on formula- she is taking to it very well- we are on week 2! BUT *yes, another but!* she has still yet to gain much more weight- we went back to the doctor today and she packed on a whole 5oz!! so she goes back in ONE week to hopefully see another !/2 pound on her skinny booty! If not... we will have to get some blood work done to make sure there nothing going on- the kid eats EVERYTHING these days so it has been a BIG surprise that shes not gaining much weight- baby food... pretty much everything, squash, green beans, peas, mix vegs, garden vegs, bananas, apples, yogurt, juice, spaghetti, chicken, rice... i mean ALOT!! she also has 24-30 fluid oz of formula now too!! so were keeping our fingers crossed that shes just little and theres nothing else to it- ANOTHER shocker- they found a heart murmur today too! the doctor said its VERY normal, and probably isnt any cause for concern but we are still shocked and scared as im sure most parents are when they hear those words- also another prayer request from the rivers family- PLEASE let me be normal!! when we go back to the doctor on monday *12-27* we will get an appt. to see a cardiologist to have it checked out!!

But on a HAPPY note- CHRISTMAS is just a few days away!! and we are sooo looking forward to watching lily have the time of her life!!! here are some pics of whats been going on this month!! more to follow with our christmas update!!

Day 12

What you believe!

I strongly believe that God wont give us anything we cant handle- which always gives me a different prospective on the things that happen in my life!! <3 I also believe that everything happens for a reason- which also gives me another outlook on things! Sometimes you feel like things cant get any worse but really they can!! and i try to remember when im feeling this way that theres always someone who has it worse than me!!

Day 10

Something your afraid of!!!

SPIDERS!!!!!! i seriously and terrified of MOST bugs- not the cute ones like lady bugs or rolly pollys- but spiders and roaches you know all the GROSS ones!! lol i dont like them NOT ONE BIT!!!
I also am not a BIG fan of clowns- the ones at the circus dont bother me too much but like the ones that are supposed to be scary- esp. halloween clowns- i think my mom passed this fear down to me- she has always hated them- well ever since the movie IT! yea, dont watch that movie!! lol
