MCKINLEE | Fourteen Months

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Hey sweet baby! Summer is coming to an end and it's so sad, but this mama is ready to be back on routine with work! {We miss Reesa and Reags} I wanted to do a little update for the past two months since you've been one! It has been a little crazy. Daddy moved out to see if Him and I can stop arguing and get back to a place where we are happy. It is rough being young adult parents but we are doing our best to do what's best for you. It is hard not having him here but I know that if it helps us get back to a place of peace it will be so worth it. He still comes and hangs out with us most days! I am doing my best to keep you in routine so hopefully it doesn't effect you too much, we love you so much and just want what is best for you. With that said, you are in to EVERYTHING:

  • You are talking so so much! The little jibberish thing you do is hilarious. "azeebazebazeba" and "Yea!" you're so smart and I love watching you learn new things.
  • You love playing in the cabinets with the pans, with your big tub of bath toys in the bathroom, your puzzles, talking on your phone.
  • You have NO interest in cartoons, which I guess is bittersweet. Good because you're not glued to the tv, but bad because I can't sit you in front of it to get anything done.
  • You eat chicken nuggets and grilled cheese mostly for lunches and dinners. Cheerios or toast and Mema's strawberry jelly for breakfast.
  • You love apple juice {or any juice really} and 2% milk with chocolate carnation breakfast powder in it.
  • Applesauce is still a huge staple anywhere we go, I love those things! You've started eating fruit crisps too and teddy grahams.
  • You are ALMOST walking! AH! I can't stand it, I get so excited when you take more than two steps!
  • You've become so much more independent since I have been in school and you have been staying with Ms. Tawny and Mema the Great and Emarie {which I am so thankful!}
  • You are usually so good for mommy when I need to study! I can get a few toys out and you will entertain yourself until I can play along with you! Thank you!
So overall, the last two months have been a blast! We went to the zoo, lots of swimming, BBQ's, friends and family, birthday parties and just good ol' mommy and sissy time! I love you so much!

FAYETTEVILLE | Fedosky's Swim Ranch

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

We are loving summer so much, and you love to swim. Since mommy doesn't work as much we have been swimming most days after I get out of class. We be so tan :) We had your first swim lesson on Saturday {July 6, 2013} at Swim Ranch and you did so well. Daddy swam with you for the first time since he's alumni and got his fish in 2005, but I can't wait to swim with you this weekend! We're gonna have so much fun! You learned that it's okay to get splashed, floated on your back, floated on your belly, and floated with a baby boogie board. I am just going to add to this post for the four weeks of swimming lessons, since there's no need for four posts!

Here's a few Pictures from Week 1:

Week 2: We went over the same objectives, floating on your belly and back, splashing and holding on to a boogie board while going across the pool. You get cranky around the last 10 minutes of class because it interrupts nap time, but next year I will do the early class so we don't have to worry about it! Mema came to watch you swim and she loved every minute of it! Mommy loved swimming with you!


HOLIDAY | 4th of July

It's Independence Day! We had such a fun fourth of July! We slept in and then Papa Ryan came over and took us all to brunch at Village Inn, you had chicken tenders and French fries, shocker. Then we came back and swam for an hour or so! We got back to the house and put you down for about a three hour nap and then we went to a BBQ with daddy's work friends! We had so much fun we played backyard golf and cornhole, drank frozen lemonade and ate lots of yummy food! Then we finished the night watching fireworks at the NWA Mall. You were mesmerized for about five minutes, and then unamused. It was a fun day, but you were one tired girl by bed time! The next day we went to the Rodeo of the Ozarks with the Oliver's and had so much fun! You loved watching all the horses and playing with the girls, you were hanging out with Ms. Codi the whole time! Love you, sweet girl!

Here's some photos from this year and to compare, some from last year:
