lots going on here

She wants to sit in the chair by herself and rock it while she reads her book at bedtime. She wants to do it all by herself.

Her Pops brought over a new book for her that Mimi bought.. It's called "goodnight moon" to go along with her obsession of the moon.. This child loves the moon!

We went to the little farm at Oak Mountain with some friends. She had a great time touching the animals..The goats wouldn't stay off her and she was ok with it.. Didn't bother her one bit.

Just a picture to make you smile..

What is that? I tried out a little test run yesterday on "tee tee in the potty" and she went 2 for 2... You heard it! She loved it, laughed and even danced with Momma when she was done. The 10 times we have tried since, have been non-eventful! smile. She is 19mos, knows when she has gone #2, but aside from that, I do believe that is really all she understands at this point.. We are going to keep showing her and letting her sit on "her potty chair" when we can, and hopefully in a month or so, she might understand it more..
Aside from that, this little baby is a little GIRL now.. Her new thing this week is "hold it" and "do it".... This means that SHE wants to hold and do everything herself. SO cute!
I am starting to gain energy and recover from my multi-illness. The steroids, antibiotics and cough syrup have helped.. Please pray with us that no one else gets really sick in the house..
Hope you have a great week! Love from Birmingham!

I'm a big kid now!

This is a big deal to us... She is eating
a 1/2 sandwhich with the crust on it
sometimes. This particular day she was eating a pimento cheese sandwhich. YAY!

Big girl

"momma do you like see food?"
Showing off her skills of eating her veggie straws as well as sporting the juice from her orange on her shirt.

1st day of school (mother's day out)

This is SA's 2nd season of Mother's Day out. It's from 9am -1pm a couple days a week. Last September when she started, she was 8 mos old and it's so sad for me to think about in a way but this time she was 19 mos when she began. She is growing up so fast. I am so thankful that I put her in this program at my church because it has really been great for her to be around other children since she pretty much is always with me, Matt, Mom/Dad or Debbie. We had a great summer having many different play dates with other kids, so she kept up with her time with other children. But this fall she begins a much more intentional learning period in her life. SO, with that said, we will call it "school".. OH, and btw,
her teachers this year have been teaching together for 17
years at my church. I think they might know what they
are doing!

Her favorite duck

I was at work, so it was Debbie's day to keep her and she took her into school. I was lucky and got to leave work for an hour to see her on her 1st day.. Happy girl!

The story on the hat: She was at home with Matt prior to leaving for her 1st day of school and put her summer hat on. When it was time to leave, she didn't want to part with the hat, nor did she want to part from it when she got to school. SO, I just let her wear it! why not...

Matt sent this picture to me this morning. He titled it "little miss sunshine"... That is some good bed head baby!
