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

Day 4


My moms name is Kara- she is my best friend. She has made me who I am as a Mother, Friend, Sister and Daughter! I honestly don't think I ever go more than a day without talking to her- and no more than a week or two without seeing her sweet face!! 

My dads name is Tommy- he is my rock! I can call him for anything and he always knows what to say to make me feel better! I don't get to see him as much as I would like now that I am living in GA- but he is and has always been a very big part of my life!

I was also blessed with 2 amazing step parents- my moms husband Alan and my dads wife Kelly! They also play a big role in my everyday life- I must say I am very lucky to have the 4 of them! They are ALL WONDERFUL grandparents as well! Seeing them love and spoil my little baby just melts my heart!!

Day 3

Ok so this is going to be about my FIRST love! for privacy purposes we will call him B- I met him through a friend of mine when i was a junior in high school- he was 2 years older and didn't go to my school- he was tall- dark hair- and handsome- for me i think it was love at first sight- the first year or so was amazing- we did everything together- but over the next 3 years things kind of went down hill- he drank ALOT and i wasn't really into that- also he would get REALLY mean and im not going to go into all the gruesome details but it was just a very toxic/unhealthy relationship! 

but the make it short and sweet- he taught me ALOT about myself- and about relationships- mostly i learned that you cant change people- they have to change for themselves- besides after out last break up i needed a change so i moved out her to GA- and if it wasn't for that split decision then i wouldn't have met my next love and soul mate!!! i do wish B the BEST of luck in his life- he will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart- Hope you find all the LOVE and JOY you deserve! UNTIL next time <3

Day 2

Meaning behind my blog name:

Pretty self explanatory! =) I actually got the name from Tori Spellings book "Mommywood"- I started this blog at 20 weeks gestation of my pregnancy and it was titled "Parents to Be" so once miss Lily entered the world I thought it pretty appropriate to change the name to "Mommywood"- so its now about my every day life with the most precious person I have ever met!! <3
