What weve been up to and 14 months!

Well I officially started school January 12th! I am loving it and am so excited about becoming a teacher! We have been pretty busy since then and Delaney and I have been going to some of David's last basketball games with him. I have been really busy balancing taking care of Delaney three days, going to school two, working at the dance studio one night, and keeping up with all the house stuff too! I LOVE it though and wouldn't have it any other way. I am going to do another post on the series Five we are doing at church and I'm going to use these as my new years resolution. I usually don't make resolutions but this is more of a way to make your life better everyday with little things rather than a resolution to do one big thing.

Also Delaney just turned 14 months old! I didn't do a 13 month post because there really wasn't that much new stuff from 12 months. She is really starting to learn things fast it seems like in the past month. Here is some of what Delaney is up to at 14 months:

-She has started talking more and here are some of the words she says that I can understand: mama, dada, thank you (sometimes), uh oh (in the right context), no, she will tell you to "hold" something for her, Tutu (my moms dog), Papa, Nana, and sometimes G.

-She has 5 teeth and is about to get 3 more that I can see

-Has a little bit of a temper if she is frustrated or can't do something (sounds a little like me !)

-She loves to play this game where David hides and pops out from behind the couch when she comes to find him and then she will run back to me laughing and do it over and over again

-She is a pretty happy little toddler and loves life most of the time

-She is still not off the bottle completely (bad mommy I know!)

-Some of her favorite foods are: spaghetti, graduate meals (ravioli and the pasta and veggies), pancakes, applesauce, peaches, bananas, green peas, green beans, mac n cheese, cheese toast, yogurt, nutrigrain bars, and grilled cheese. She pretty much will eat anything you give her but these are that ones she seems to like the most.

-She loves the dogs still and will now walk around making a kissing noise at them until they stop and give her a kiss

-She is still in some 6m some 9m and a few 12m clothes, is in a size 3 shoe and we just moved up to a size 3 diaper about a week ago

-She weighs almost 18lb and I'm not sure how long she is we go for a checkup at 15 months

-She loves to be outside and we are so excited about spring coming!

-She likes to get in her new chair she got for Christmas and she will finally watch a little TV and her favorite show is "jack's music show". I found it on demand on Nick Jr. and they are puppets that are colorful and sing and dance.

-She has found her voice and often will yell out at dinner to tell you what she wants.. we are working on our "inside voice". Also I am often told my voice carries and that I am loud and low and behold I think Delaney got my voice box!

-She has always slept with a lovey but has become more attached and now likes to carry one with her most of the time.. you can see her attachment in the pictures since she wouldn't even put it down to play with the basketball!

-Still does not really like her car seat

-She will imitate so many things you do now and it is hilarious for example yesterday David laid on the ground making snoring noises because D will always walk over when he does this and just lean down on her own and give him a kiss and it is so sweet. Anyway they were doing this yesterday and a few minutes later Delaney was laying on the ground making snoring noises by herself just waiting for us to notice and we were dying laughing!

You are so much fun Delaney and so very loved! Happy 14 months baby girl! Well here is why most of you read anyway a few pictures of Delaney recently!

Happy New Year!

We had a great new years eve this year. David, Delaney and I stayed home and just had a few of my friends over. We decided to do it at our house so we could put Delaney to bed and we wouldn't have to leave her since she has been a little under the weather. We had SO much fun just talking and catching up. One of my best friends Lauren even came from Huntsville to hang out so it was great getting to see them and hang out for a night like old times! I lived with both Lauren and Karen, two of my very best friends, for the four years we were in college. We had so many fun times so it was like old times again except our husbands got to join us this time. They both got married pretty recently. We played Taboo some and just had the best time! On new years day mom came over and we cooked turkey and dressing (a new tradition we started last year) and had a great dinner. I like to say mom "helps" me but she probably does more than me! I'm not quite that good with this meal yet but I am learning! Anyway I got a few pictures while my friends were here and we got Delaney's new chair in so I put up a few pictures of her LOVING it! We are supposed to have SNOW here tomorrow so we are crossing our fingers and are getting excited!
