Thank you everyone who sent me such supportive and encouraging comments/emails on/about my last entry.
I haven't been able to respond back much because, well I don't get on the computer too often, and anyway my email account is apparently sending out spam and is contaminated with something.
I don't know if that's just my email or my computer.
I wanted to update my blog for my scrapbooking purposes.
I'm way behind now on my scrapbooking, but for sake of journaling and memory sakes I refer to my blog often for dates and memories to scrapbook.
Therefore, I have to blog about my daughter's 1 1/2 birthday.
That was August 5th.
Ideally her 18 month birthday should have been separated with a toy and some sugary treat, along with a bunch of pictures and some fine family time.
but I spent that day in the good ol' hospital being coaxed to drink chicken broth and eat jello.
I got no pictures
and Squiggy got no cake or toy.
That's not true.
Philip came home from work that day and brought her to Chick-filet.
I do believe there was a cow toy in her kids meal.
18 month toy=success.
Wanna hear how much of a genius my kid is?
Sure ya don't, but you know I'm gonna tell you aaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllll about it! :)
At the ripe age of 18 months old my little girl:
-wears an 18-24 month size.
-fits a size 6 shoe.
-has enough strawberry blonde hair to put in two little pony tails
-knows her entire alphabet and the pronunciation of each letter (except for X and Q which confuse her)
-she can pick out letters in writing
-her favorite number is 9
-she enjoys counting even though everything is "123"
-knows all of her body parts from her head to her toes
-knows every animal and their coordinating sounds [cow/moo, horse/neigh, chicken, donkey duck, goose, pig, goat, sheep, hippo, alligator, shark, dog, cat, rabbit, turtle, fish, bird, .....etc]
-can successfully identify her colors, purple being her favorite to find and say
-loves to show her muscles, stick 'um up for tickling, and say "Who Dat"
-thinks her daddy is 'maken bubbles' when he is peeing
-has a weird habit of keeping her finger in her belly button while sucking her thumb
-has a unique way of saying 'airplane' which splashes any surrounding people or things with spit
-will do anything for cheese
-says "Thankthank" for thank you
- mostly enjoys chasing Gracie's tail and then pretending she herself has a tail.
-dances with her daddy to... his..... music
-still loves ol' Mickey Mouse
-and gives her momma the best cuddles in the world.
I'm so proud of this little human we've made.
I know I totally sound like a mom, but I think she's the best kid in the world.
Makes the days so much happier.
and FYI too
[as if I just haven't force-fed enough gooey bragging down your throats]
dusted off my camera
and took a picture
for the first time in like 2 months
and this, my dear friends
is Adeline and her strong muscles like DaDa.
