In Case You Missed the Big News…

I had planned to write this elaborate post about how amazing Lola is doing with her walking, but I have a little baby boy (two months today!) who is wanting to be near his mama. And today I’m choosing to embrace his need to be close because time is indeed flying by. I don’t want to be that mom who wishes she had put down the technology in order to be more present in her life. I want to be an active part of it. So I’ll simply let you see for yourself how well Lola is walking… I literally watch these videos several times a day. I’m so proud of our daughter and all of the hard work she has put in to achieve this incredible milestone....

End of Summer Lola Spam

My mom always says, “Post more pictures of Lola” so there really is no point to this post…I’m just trying to stay on my mother’s good side. 🙂 Lola has become quite expressive these days whether it is her making a goofy face or babbling some crazy babble.

The theme for Lola’s party was not Barbies, owls or other cute girly things, instead we opted for a theme that would be accommodating to Lola’s sight…black, white and red. The party was held at our friends, Mike and Mickey’s, who also happened to supply most of the crafts and books as crafting parties are a regular occurrence at their home. I was a bit shocked and overwhelmed (as I...

Contortionist Maybe?

This little lady has got some abs on her! Yesterday she was supposed to be sitting in her swing, but when I looked over this is how I found her. I’m not sure if you can see, but she has a dribble of drool literally going down her foot. [frame align=”center”][/frame] [frame align=”center”][/frame] [frame align=”center”][/frame] After she was finished licking and eating her feet along with laughing about it, she sat back up in an upright position as if it was nothing. She has become quite thick with strength in the past few weeks and I’m sure once she wraps her mind around things like sitting unassisted and crawling, she’ll be doing them in no time....
