Thirteenth Month


I’m sorry I haven’t written you a monthly letter for a LONG time. But I’m going to try to get back in the habit! You have grown and changed so much!
You started walking at the end of 9 months, and got pretty good really quick. It’s so hard to sum up the last 5 months so here’s a list of some things about you…

  • You love to bring me books and climb on the couch with me to read (although you never let me read to you)
  • You clap after everything you think you did right and when you hear YAY! or thanks
  • You HAVE to have two of everything.. One in each hand
  • I think it’s so cute that you just sit on the bottom of the stairs with a book or toys and kick your legs.
  • You go down for naps pretty easy, you just have to talk your self to sleep
  • You love to give kisses to everyone you see if someone asks for one
  • You like to wave bye
  • You cry when Daddy takes out the trash or walks the dog.. You stand and look out the door or window
  • You LOVE to throw things
  • You spit at me when I tell you no or not to do something :(
  • You only bite me
  • You give Chaos ‘loves'
  • You can say
* Mom

* Dad

* No

* Yeah

* Dog

* Down

* Stop

* Hey

* More

* Mine

* Night Night (nigh nigh)

* Stinky (tink)

* And you try to mouth a lot of things we say

It’s impossible to document EVERY little thing about you.
But I love you so much and although I’m sad nothing will ever be the same, I’m excited to see how you change in this next month..

I love you Buddha Butt

Taiden's First Year Video Montage

So I just realized that I never posted my one year old video! Which I finished on Taiden's birthday. The main reason is cause my movie editor sucks, I wasn't able to upload it to even YouTube! So I bought a new one, but by then I was to irritated to do it how I did it the first time... But here it is..

Favorite Words

Taiden has two favorite new words.
No and Yeah.
He says them both constantly and I think he's starting to REALLY understand what they mean... He tells me NO! then runs down the hall or he'll shake his head while saying it. But I also think he just really likes saying those words.

Yesterday we had a playdate with a friend of (mine? and) Felecia's and her kids. She has a almost 2 year old daughter (Zoe) and 4 month old twins (Eli and Eva). They are so cute and we had tons of fun! Felecia and Katie had fun catching up.

Zoe or Zbug as her parents call her.

Beautiful Zoe.
Zoe and her cousin swaddled like babies.

Handsome little Eli.
Purty Eva!

Good Times

I have been watching Eliza 5 days a week for about 2.5 hours since the beginning of January and it's been really fun. I take tons of pictures but I have yet to post any so I just thought I'd post a few from last week or the week before.. who knows.. haha

The first thing she does when she gets here or after she eats is kick off her shoes and go straight for Taiden's LITTLE ball pit I got him for his birthday... She loves it!

Peeking through the hole in the top.
Little Miss Mischeivous.
Her smile face? Haha ask Nat about that...

She also likes to take books in there and read... I hear "I'm going upstairs to get books now okay Summer? Okay?"
Having Eliza over is a blast and I'm really glad Taiden has someone to play with on an almost daily basis.

Last week (or was it the week before?) I also watched Walker while Lesley was at the flower shop (oh yeah it was for Valentines so it was the week before) and he FINALLY convinced Taiden to go DOWN the stairs and to eat chicken 'nuggets'! Thank you Walker!
Here are a few pics from that day...

I thought this was so cute!
I still didn't notice what Walker had in his hand...
Then I saw Taiden going for more...
Finally saw that Walker had one too!
Sneaky sneaky!Taiden was pretty bored after I closed the fireplace haha

During this post I heard a faint sound of clapping then Taiden came giddily into the room. Crap I thought he's up to something.... I ran out of the room and saw the bathroom door wasn't closed... this is what I found...

And this is what he came back for...

Good times...
Good thing there is a washing machine in the same room and that is right where they all went!

Devan's sister Heather and her husband Rob welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world last week! I stole some pictures from their blog teehee.

Taiden's Birthday

So a lot has happened in the past two weeks! And each deserves it's own post (although we all know with me that post will be late or may never come at all). I will try to post them all separately.

First. Taiden had a birthday party! It was music themed (but I forgot to make a play list on my IPOD so the music was kinda lame haha) and although he won't remember it I think he had fun playing with his cousins and friends, and I hope they had fun too.

Everything is kind of backwards cause I'm just to lazy to switch it and I uploaded them in the wrong order!

The AWESOME IPOD cake and cupcakes Aunt Lesley made for Taiden!

Alysha tagged me on this forever ago it seems, but as I haven't really been on here I just now saw it!

These are the rules...

1. Link this post to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. List 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

6 Random things about me:

1. I have a horrible habit of touching my nose that I hate, and have been trying to change since I was 12!

2. I hope I have a girl next, but I will not disclose my girl name in case any name thieves read my blog.

3. I HATE name thieves. If you know I wanted to name my child something why would you steal it? I should have been named Jamillah, but THANKFULLY my aunt stole it from my mom. I still HATE them though...

4. I think I have a mild case of OCD.

5. I HAVE to put lotion on after I wash my hands. I've been known to ask random people when I'm out and have forgotten mine at home. If you catch me ringing my hands... That's probably why...

6. I've had the chicken pox THREE times. NO LIE.
