13 months

Baby girl is 13 months now. This girl is so special to me! During my pregnancy I can't pretend I didn't have mixed feelings. I wondered how to balance my time between the baby and my sweet husband. I felt selfish..and then I had her! How our world changed! The bond between tommy and I grew stronger and stronger and at the same time I had this growing love for my new baby. It was amazing and it continues to amaze me everyday! Now Lyla is 13 months old and crazy! :)

at 13 months Lyla is:
-walking like a pro!
-talking so much! -says dada, mama, papa, bye-bye, hi, boogie(my parents dogs name!), boo, uh-oh, up, uh-uh(while shaking her head no! ha)..
-signs all done, more, thank-you, & please
-Loves being outside..swinging, swimming, going on walks, playing at the park...anything outside!
-gives the biggest cheese smile
-gives the best kisses! and to everyone!
-Loves playing with her cousins

She is the funnest little girl and has me laughing all day long! Shes so cheesy and goofy and makes my day! Love you baby girl!

Lyla's Party!

The day after Lyla's party we had a little party :) It was more for me than decorate, take pictures, remember her this age forever. We had some pizza, salads, cute cupcakes! and of course..a smash cake!

One Year Old!

I can't believe I am writing this post. WHAT?! no way is my baby 1. But sure enough... I seriously don't even know where to begin. I love this little girl more than anything in the whole world. I love her more than I ever knew possible. She brings so much joy and happiness to our lives. I love waking up to her everyday! She is seriously so fun and such a good baby. She is so happy all the time! We are so blessed. I am so grateful to my Father in Heaven to trust me with one of his very special spirits! She makes our home and our lives so much better.

-Climbs the stairs like a champ

-Goes to bed at about 8 until usually 9 and takes 2 naps a day still!

I could go on for hours about all the cute things she learns and does everyday. My favorite part of the day is bedtime. We have our little routine that she knows :) We get her milk, go in her room and brush her teeth, pick out a couple books and sit in the glider. After we read we turn her light off, her noise machine on and sit back in the glider and sing...this is my favorite part. She lays her head on my shoulder and stares at me while I sing her songs and puts her hand on my cheek. Everynight. I seriously get teary eyed everynight while we do this. She is the sweetest thing. I love this little girl with all my heart. Happy Birthday Lyla!

On her birthday I was mean and scheduled a Dr appointment...I know I know :( I'm awful. So we got home from that, took a nap, then woke up to presents! She still didn't quite know what to do with the presents but she enjoyed ripping the paper into tiny pieces :) She LOVES her rocking horse, best gift ever! If you push his ear and he starts singing while shes in the other room it only takes her about 5 seconds to get into her room from wherever she is!
