A Year and a Half

Braelle celebrates her half birthday every year on St. Patrick's Day! Right now, I'm sure she thinks all the choas is revolved around her and thinks that everyone is throwin down for her half birthday! Can yall believe she's already 18 months?? Check out just how so very cute she is!

Cutest outfit you've ever seen?! Wish it came in my size!!

So Braelle is 18 months and this is what's been up:
  • Walks up and down stairs (with assistance)
  • Moved up to size 4 diapers
  • Speaks words and babbles A LOT. Some examples are, "read, momma, Bub, Heath, water, uh-oh, woah, wow, baby, hey, thanks, ect." Aunt Ashton pointed out that B also says "weee" when seeing or going down a slide, "hot" and "yum yum"
  • loves the beach
  • knows all body parts
  • tells me when she has a 'full diaper'
  • definitely right handed (thank God)
  • still nursing...the new goal is to stop by age 2
  • has hit the terrible two's early...throws temper tantrums on the regular...but good thing is they don't last but about 5 seconds
  • weighs 21 lbs still (5%)
  • Not interested in letting me measure how tall she is and we haven't been to the doctor's for a check up in 9 months, but comparing her to other kids her age, she seems tall.
  • LOVES ice cream!!
  • Insists on giving headbutts, pounds, high fives, hand shakes, kisses, hugs AND waves (in that order normally) when having to say bye-bye. If she gets all of those tricks in, she doesn't care if you have to go. So this little routine really helps with seperation anxiety. She also needs to run to the door and watch you leave. She often tries to give a distant headbutt and blows kisses as I drive away. Sweet girl huh?!

Let's Reminiscence

Let's reminiscence, shall we? So apparently nursing school pretty much requires you to have a smart phone, which I don't have...yet!! I've had my nonsmart phone for 3 years and have lots of pictures of Braelle on it so here are some over the years that I couldn't do away with!

Will I be a basketball player??
 Or a gymnast??


 Braelle drooled on my pants and it made a heart!

 When B had Salmonella...

 My 1st Birthday!
 1st time I saw B sleeping on her back
haha ok so B was nursing and had an itch on her cheek so she scratched it with her toes!
 I'm too cool
 Sleepin in the tub
 Oh how I LOVE this picture

 hahah...Baby dreads
Just a couple hours old
 haha a girlfriend of mine texted me one night..."hey sexy" and I replied with this picture, "how's this for sexy??"
 And of course I'll never forget this day...ha
