Happy 20 Month Bday!!

It's almost been 2 years, UNBELIEVABLE!!! How amazing it is to watch your child grow and learn everyday. I am so proud of who she is becoming and hope and pray for her daily.

She has started talking, although it's not alot. She says go, eat, bye, hi, drink. Most of her speech is grunting, she's my little monkey.

She has 12 teeth, I think all the primary teeth are in for now. She will get another molar around 25 teething. She loves brushing her own teeth and Elmos teeth and will "allow" me to brush hers.

She's an EATER. There is hardly ever anything she wont eat, although she is slowing down on how much she eats.

She loves music, shoes, Elmo and Backyardigans. She has also really enjoyed nursery, although for about 2 weeks she was unwilling to go in there without a cry fest.

She knows what a dog, cat, cow, chicken and pig says, she loves any book with these animals in it.....really she loves any book!

She knows all the hand movements to monkeys jumping on a bed, itsey bitsey spider and if your happy and you know it.....the girl really loves music! We started playing ring around the rosies and she hasn't caught on to that fully yet.

Oh how I love our little girl, she is my life!!!!

Whenever I have gum in my mouth Lexie signs "please" to me....meaning she wants some. I'll give her a tiny little piece and she'll chew it for a while before swallowing it. The other day I went down to do some laundry and came back to find this......

She had eaten a whole pack of new gum......I couldn't believe how fast she got through it all, she must of done 3 pieces at a time or something.

It's a Girl

I was able to make a cake for a baby shower and it was fun to do. Go here to see all the picutes.

Baby Shower

I was able to throw a baby shower for my buddy Senessa, and what a blast it was to do. Here are just a few of the pictures I took....

We have had our first drawing on the walls. She has been coloring for several months and has never felt the urge to draw on anything but paper.....that changed today. She was being very quiet so I went to check on her and all along our hallway she was drawing. She was a very good girl and help cleanup the mess....409 and a scrubby work wonders. I was worried I'd have to paint over it because the first few tries didn't work at all! Hopefully she has learned her lesson, we'll see!

Happy Halloween. This year we dressed up as Cruella, Jasper and a Dalmation. I love Halloween!!! I'm so thankful my hubby is man enough to dress up with me!! We had a great time and Lexie ate more candy that night than she's eaten her whole life! The Nelson's came over for dinner and then we all got ready to head down the hill. They looked great, go here to see pictures of them.

After Lexie went trunk or treating she started handing her candy out, it was so cute!

Auntie Becky gave her a sucker as we were leaving, she ate it the whole way home and was covered in blue.....she went right into a bath!

The Nelson's as The wizard of Oz.
