18 months!!!

I seriously have a 11/2 year old!! Holy cow!

Weighs: 22 lbs (30th %tile)
Length: 32 in. (70th tile)

these are things that have happened/developed over the past two months or so:

*she can shake her finger at you
*started saying:
bubbles- "bubbies"
love you- "of ewe"
says "c'mon" when she wants you to take her somewhere
can say one and hold up one finger
consistantly says please ("pees") and thank you ("ank you")
*hashbrown, a McD's favorite- "habown"

...At this point, she can pretty much attempt to say anything we ask her to....which never ceases to entertain/amaze me!

*food staples -
chicken nuggets
mac and cheese

*is such a drama queen (not much of a surprise there)
*Continues to loves water....esp. the pool. Beach, not so much, only because she HATES getting sand on her feet. She refuses to walk in the sand because of it, ha.
*she pee-peed on the potty (not on purpose though). We were practicing sitting on the potty and she actually did it! We aren't potty training yet though. Not quite there.
*Likes to sing Old McDonald- Will sing the E-I-E-I-O part :)
*Loves her kids songs cds
*If she wants you to pick her up (which seems rare these days...) will say "Up me"
*She has learned the letter "P"
*We're working on counting, just 1-2-3. As of now everything is "freee" (three). Must be her favorite number at the moment.
*Also working on the colors red, blue, green. Same as with her numbers, she picks one color and everything is that color....Everything is "reeen" (green)

*Peyton knows she can work the grandparents. She puts on such a show. She's too smart.

*Was a Flower Girl in my sister Sarah's wedding (July 9th) and had her second "vacation" at the beach. Her and I stayed a few days after the wedding with my family at the hotel.

*She saw her first set of fireworks this 4th of July...and loved them

While sometimes it can be alot to handle, this age is so much fun. Even though she still doesn't know how to form sentences, Peyton can communicate with us now and that alone makes things alot easier. I don't look forward to potty training....but I'm sure that will start soon ::gulp:: Pray for me, ha.

A Funk

It seems that it's been going around. I guess I was bound to catch it. I'm in a funk.

blog-wise: have no idea what to write about.
craft-wise: have run out of "Oomph" to try something new.
fashion-wise: i feel as if i have nothing to wear (when I do) and hate everything i put on.

Bleh. I can only hope it goes away quickly.

On a more positive note, I do have an exciting product review with a give away coming soon, so stay tuned for that :)

My Sister's Wedding

Two weekends ago, my sister Sarah got married on the beach at the Don CeSar Hotel in St. Pete, FL.

To say it was beautiful is an understatement. The day before, it was hurricane-like weather. It was horrible. We were all preparing for the ceremony to have to be inside. Sarah was a trooper though, she never got upset at the fact the ceremony may not be on the beach (like she's always dreamed). It stormed through the rehersal dinner and into the night. The next morning, I woke up and jumped out of bed to look out the window and much to my delight it was BEAUTIFUL!!! The skies were neon blue with perfect fluffy clouds in the sky. YAY! There was a short rain in the early afternoon but it cleared up quickly. The ceremony went perfectly and the reception was a blast! It was a late night, as the ceremony started at 7:30 (for sunset to occur during the reception) but it was worth staying up past my bedtime. Sarah was beautiful, the bridal party looked top notch (Austin, Peyton and I were all in the wedding! ;))....I just can't say enough.  On to the pictures!!!

the weather the day before:

 Picture perfect!:

::Sigh:: I'm no longer the only married sibling!! :)

Vacation has ended

I'm enjoying my last few hours of vacation.

It's been a whirlwind two weeks. My sister Sarah got married at the Don CeSar in St. Pete last weekend and my family stayed a few extra days afterwards to relax and enjoy the beach. It's been wonderful!! I dread getting back on a routine. Peyton hasn't had a consistent bedtime in a WEEK....this should be fun. Once I'm back home and settled in, I'll start posting pictures!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!
