Cravings:I'm hungry, hungry, hungry, esp at 9 pm. I really want steak right now and fruit. Jimmy Johns. I'm also graving a gyro sooo badly and no where in Hays has them.

And it's a beautiful day...

The past 2 days were beautiful. My favorite 2 days in January, hands down. I was able to hang out the laundry, which I love doing.

We took many, many walks and went to the park.
Pretty, pretty girl!

Little poser!

This was the first time that Lyla went to the park where she could actually walk!
She dislikes the swings, the slides and the jumpy bridge thing. All she liked was the little kiddo seesaw.

Love her!
We spent lots of time outside our house too, playing with the dogs. We grilled out, played with balls, and her little slide thing.
By the end, she wasn't much of a fan of her slide. She hasn't quite figured how to climb up it, sit down, and slide down the slide. And remember, she's not a fan of the park, so this little fun number isn't her bff right now.

It's been a great past 2 days. I want more like that, since it made me itch for the spring SO badly. And todays super chilly weather was not cool. I am soooo ready for spring!!! :)

It's a Rock Chalk kinda day.

Started our rockn' chalkn' day, bright and early with this popular guy...
who this little girl was a bit unsure about.
But who sucked it up for a picture with momma.

And she looked super cute all decked out in red & blue.

And as of now, we are whoopin up on those kitty cats pretty good! :) Another win for the Jayhawks.

This post is just for me to remember because I know someday I'll be old and won't remember everything.

- More words Lyla says - She's finally says Reese and Gauge. She's also saying papa and nana (which is for banana at this time.)

- Whenever she sits next to me, she always has her ankles crossed (which I do, too) and she puts her hand on my arm. Sometimes she pats it and sometimes she'll rub my arm. It's so sweet and always makes me smiles.

-She's also into helping a lot and pretending. She loves to walk away and say bub-bye and then she walks a little bit, giggles, and comes running back to me.

That's it for now. Today was beautiful and I'll post about it soon!

Lyla {17 months}

Happy {17} Months, Miss Lyla!

- Still weighs 20 lbs, in 12 -18 months clothes.
- Size 3 diaper and still in cloth most of the time.
- Sleeps 12 hours with {1} 2 hour nap.
- Loves baths, puppies {actually she's obsessed with them}, and books.
- Is a great eater! Loves, loves food. Favorites are cheese, banana's, pasta, all veggies and fruits.
- Has recently become addicted to TV. Which is now very, very limited. I can't even listen to CMT because she just stares at the TV.
-Has recently started wanting her blanket at random times. However, we are mean parents and she only gets it at nap time and bedtime.
-Is slowly starting to talk more. Loves to mimic words but most of the time don't make much sense. Says HI allll the time. Puppy,baby, bubye, more, uh-oh, duck, yellow, mama, dada, yum-yum, burr, night night, ball, and a few others I can't remember. Also signs more, please, food (yum-yum).
- Knows dog and monkey sounds, loves to give hugs and kisses, no longer cries when I leave her, loves to help clean and put things in the trash. Loves balls and is finally starting to play with her baby more. Does touchdown whenever football is on and claps every time she sees basketball playing.
I can't believe I'm close to having a 1 1/2 year old!!! She's growing so fast and learning so much!
Love you sweet girl!

Under 200!

Well I'm under the 200 day mark. I have 199 days to go! I'm no longer feeling sick most of day and some of my energy is starting to come back, but I'm still tired all the time. Part of the could be from a cute little girl that runs around and gets into everything. She loves the trash cans, all her drawers, her books, the hallway cabinet. Lots of fun for her, but it drives this momma nuts.

And I realized I haven't taken a picture of her all month so far. So I should probably do that soon. She also turned 17 months 3 days ago and I need to do her post. But that requires pictures, so I'll get on it.

And hows that for a random post?! :)

Thank you, Thank you!

Thanks to everyone for all the sweet comments on here and on facebook! Sean and I are so excited and glad it's finally out! I have a few blogs that I had kept private until we told everyone, so if you take a look over at the tags on the right side of the screen, click on Baby #2 and you can read those if you'd like.

Again, thanks so much! :)

1st appointment for Baby Jay #2

Today was my first appointment and so far, so good! Sean got to come and we just went over the basics, family history, etc. Then we got to search for a heartbeat. It took 2 nurses, but we found it at 170. I looked back to what Lyla's was at this appointment and hers was 156.

They also changed my due date by a day, so the offical day is 08.08.11. I'll be praying, begging, pleading for a healthy baby in July so they will not share a birthday month. I'm very wierd about things like that. But we shall see.

I go back in Feb 7th, which I'll be 14 weeks at that time which means only 6 weeks from then until my sono...not that I'm counting!
