Weekend Fun..

Lately, I feel like I haven't taken many pictures of my sweet child. I guess when you go from a stay at home mom to a working mom, the pictures become few and far between.  I'm really trying to do better about taking pictures of my sweet girl so I can remember all the special times.  This weekend, B was just too funny.  She found a bag of paci's in her nightstand in her room that have been in there since she was a tiny baby. She has never liked them but she's had the best time playing with all of them and carrying them all around.  It cracks me up to see a paci in her mouth..that is just not like her.  But, last night she put one in her mouth while Daddy was reading her bedtime book.  I had to capture the moment.  Too cute.
Another one of her favorite things to do lately is to sit on the counter in the bathroom while I am getting ready and play in the water and play with our toothbrushes.  She is a mess.. she wants ONLY our toothbrushes.  She doesn't want anything to do with her's anymore.  She will go in the bathroom and wave up to the counter and fuss until we give her the toothbrush.  Cracks me this morning I grabbed the camera while she was having a little bathroom fun!

Another one of her favorite things is to ride the little train in the mall.  She loves it.. probably because we live right near the railroad tracks and trains pass by our house all the time and she runs to see them and just waves the whole time.  Today, we went over to the mall and of course she rode the train. 
Checking out all the people..
When we came home, she played and grabbed those silly paci's again.  Ha.
Another one of her favorite things to do is go outside.. She is slightly obsessed with outside.  
She has gotten all into her shoes lately and when we ask her if she wants to go outside, she will go and grab her shoes and bring them to you.  She will cry to go out and when you bring her back in if she's not ready..she will have a meltdown..oh my..
She loves our dog Oscar too and she's been all about playing with him so I snapped this one too. 
 He's just not too into her unless she has food.
Oh the fun with a 15 1/2 month old..  =)

War Eagle..

I'm a little behind in the blogging world...Last weekend we went over to our friends Becca and Kyle's to watch the Auburn vs. LSU game. We are big AU fans and they are big LSU fans but it was still fun!  It's no secret AU is not that great of a team this year.  It's okay..we're young and we're learning and I'll always be an AU tiger. I really expected them to beat the heck out of us but that didn't end up happening.  Our tigers played well and hung in there until the last minute.  It was a good game despite the loss and we had a great time together and our girls did too. The girls are 3 months apart and I'm so thankful they have each other to play with.  I'm gonna miss them so much when they move to Dallas..=(  Big tears...

What a difference a year makes.. B was 3 months in this picture.  Sept. 11
First time in her AU outfit.
My sweet thumb sucker..
Sweet, sweet friends!
The girls having some fun!

Happy Birthday Reagan!  We are so glad we got to celebrate with you!  We love you very much!

Burkleigh Ann is 15 months old..

You are growing up so fast! 
You weigh 22 lbs.
You are 33 1/2 in tall.  
You are in the 40th percentile for weight and the 50th for height.
You wear a size 5 shoe.
You wear a size 3 or 4 diaper.
Your clothes are 12 months
You are a MESS and you constantly make us laugh.
One of your favorite things to do right now is play peek a boo.
If we say, "Where's Burkleigh?"  you will put your little hand over your face and pretend we can't see you and then just laugh when we say "Boo"

You love to hide in the curtains in the living room and hide in the shower curtain in the bathroom.  

You love Oscar and love to play with him.. he's just not too into you unless you have food.

You have gotten all four of your molars and this past month has been a rough one for teeth.
Wow!!  You have been super fussy but hopefully its almost over.. You have a mouth full of teeth.  You won't let me see how many but I'm guessing around 12 or so.

Dr. Andy said you were one of the strongest 15 month olds he had ever seen.. you sure did fight him when he tried to look at you. Oh my..

You are loving shoes right now.  You will go get your shoes and bring them to us so you can go outside and play.  As long as you are outside playing you are fine.. you will have a meltdown when we bring you in. 

You are finally sleeping through the night.. it just took 15 months.. =)
You go to bed around 9 and lately you have been waking up around 7ish.. sometimes longer and sometimes earlier.

You haven't wanted to sleep in your bed much at night.. I think it's been the teeth.. you did this once before too. I hate to say it but you've been sleeping with me some and you sleep SO much better and mommy doesn't have to get up!  The first time you slept through the night you were in my bed!  I hope I haven't started something here.. 

You love your little people school bus toy and pushing it around.  You also love to push your little baby stroller.

You love to brush your teeth.. but you like to use our toothbrush.

You are obsessed with Oscar's dog food and his water bowl.  We have to pry it out of your mouth. Gross!

You like to play in the refrigerator and take out all the things in the door and put it back in.

You still don't say many words.. but you can make the dog sound, the pig sound, the horse sound, and will point to your head and nose when we ask where it is.

You love music and you just smile when I sing to you.  You also love your little play class at Gymboree.  You are finally going in and playing with the other kids and not fussing.  You love to touch other kids on the head.

You love to climb, read and run!  You are a fast little thing!

You are eating whatever but you are still not a huge eater.  You love to snack!

You take one nap a day about 2-3 hours.

Your little personality is really coming out and you are very strong willed!
You have lots of energy and you wear us all out but we are so thankful for your little spunky self.
We love you bunches!

Labor Day Weekend..

We've had a relaxing weekend!  I have been sick for the past week...blah and I can't get better.  I always get sick when school starts back. =(  A nasty cold that has turned into a yucky cough and just won't go away.. its' not fun when you can't take much either.  I hope to feel better soon!  Yesterday, we had a b'day party for my SIL who turned 30!  She's still a baby!  Welcome to the club, sista!  We had fun family get together and B and her cousin Reagan had a fun time together.  She passed out on the way home she was so worn out!  Today, we're doing laundry at home and cleaning up and tomorrow I hope we might can do something fun together.  So thankful for a day off work!
