Once Again I Needed To Cook Dinner....

It had been a long day, she'd only taken an hour nap and wasn't willing to let me out of her sight. I needed to cook dinner, Rex was on his way but not close enough.

Let the water games begin!

I love how she's looking at this bowl like she's never seen one before and not sure what to do with it. It's even cuter because she's sporting my favorite cloth diaper :)
Quickly she figures it out!

And in the end I had a beach towel on the floor moping up the water but, I did get dinner cooked! I love motherhood, really I do :)

15 Months

Well my little girl, you have made it to 15 months. You currently weigh 20lbs 15oz and are 30 inches long. You have 6 teeth in completely and another 2 are breaking through each day. You have finally started walking on your own, when you choose, which is not as often as mommy would like, but I know now that you will get there. You have developed a beautiful personality; you are talkative, always smiling (unless someone tells you 'NO' and then you cry like the world is ending), and love to blow kisses and raspberries on me. You know the words 'Uh oh', 'mama', 'dada', and 'juice'. You love to take things apart, but you are also really good at putting things back together, including shape puzzles. You love for Daddy and I to play with you, yet you are also perfectly content to play by yourself. You still eat like a horse but have chosen foods you like a lot more than others. You LOVE green beans so much you can eat an entire can in one sitting. You also love Mandarin oranges, black beans, mac and cheese, hot dogs, cheese sticks, and guacamole. You love to be outside and if there is water involved well, that's even better. Your attachment level to me has increased greatly over the past month and I'm already betting starting back to daycare next month will be heart wrenching for both of us. I love spending so much time with you even if you do wear me out beyond my wildest imagination. You have become a beautiful toddler and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
