16 Months

It has been a long, long while since I have updated. Truthfully, there just wasn't any energy in me to sit here and pound away at the keys of this old laptop. But, here we are, the baby  toddler is napping and I have an teeny bit of energy to discuss what's going on with my beautiful bird.

My darling Aubrey Rose,

You have been 16 months for three days now. Where do I even go from here?

You have been walking for a good bit of time and I can tell you are on the brink of running. This both excites and terrifies me because you are already pretty quick! 

You babble almost constantly. You don't have many words just yet, "Bruce," is still your favorite word and has become the word for any dog that crosses your path. You can say dada and you will say mama only when you are upset.

Helping feed the Bruces

You are pretty good about following direction. You love to "help" us with whatever we are doing. However....we are getting to the time out stage in your life. In reality, you rarely get put into time out. But when you do it's not the prettiest part in our day. But, once your time is up (1 minute) you get up and give us a hug and kiss.

Speaking of hugs and kisses you love to give them. That is my favorite part of the day when I come home and can always guarantee that you will stop whatever you are doing and give me a hug and kiss. You even pat my back. It is one of the sweetest things you do. 

The other night it struck me that you are now an for real toddler. After I snapped this photo:

You are incredibly bright. You are the best thing that has truly ever happened to me.
 I love you.
 I love you.
 I love you.

Life has been really hectic lately. 

Where have I been?

Work, gym, work, home, work, work, work, not going to the gym, work, home, wash, rinse, repeat.

I am happy to say that I have finally gotten my ass back into the gym after a three week hiatus. But that's not why I am here today.

Yesterday I turned 27. Twenty-seven!

I don't have much to say on that fact other than my day was fabulous. I spent ten hours at work and then came home to my beautiful little girl and magnificent boyfriend. We had pizza and cake from Fresh and Easy and I had my once a week soda. 

Here are a few photos from my day:

I haven't been this happy in such a long time. My heart is so full.

Is anyone still out there?

I took a much needed hiatus for the birthday/holiday/crazy work day/more holiday/birthday party mania that was known as December.

There isn't anything too crazy that happened. But, I DID learn one thing....

If I can ever help it (as in, it will never be planned, it is to be serendipity) I will never have another November/December/January baby again. Between the birthday and birthday party I have never been so stressed. Not to mention the holidays and the parties and dinners and celebratory things that go along with them. Ay!

Anywho, I do have a photo dump for all of you as well as a resolution!

Are ya ready?
Let's go!

First up is the Cake Smash Photo Shoot:

Then there was the Birthday/Birthday Party:

So there you have it!

Until next time...
