A Day at the Beach

Jillian had her first visit to the Beach last Friday. Daddy took her to Surfside Beach on his day off. She had a great time building sandcastles, playing in the water, and collecting seashells.

A Momentous Occasion!

When I was pregnant with Jillian and on bed rest, my friend Marissa showed me a picture of a bookshelf in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog that I just had to have.  Needless to say it was a little more money than I was willing to pay, so Frank said he would make it for me and make one for Marissa too (she was pregnant at the time, too.)  That was 2 years and 4 months ago.  Marissa got her's on Justin's 1st birthday.  Jillian got hers this past weekend!

Daddy did such a good job!

It's been a long time...

It's been almost 2 months since I posted anything.  I wish I could say I have a good excuse, but nothing more than life!  So what have we been up to.

I finished up the school year and have been off from work for the past 2 weeks.  I have loved spending time with my munchkin!!  It has been SUPER H-O-T, so we have been taking walks in the morning and then spending the afternoon indoors or going to the pool.

And BIG NEWS in the Beck household...little miss Jillian has started using the big girl potty!!  She went for the first time a week ago today and then showed no interest again until today.  Today she said "I go potty" and it caught on...she went 5 more times!!  So we went to the store and bought pull-ups and big girl panties.  She gets the biggest grin on her face when I cheer when she goes (sorry for the mental image!) for some pictures from the past 2 months...

Someone has been eating ice cream

And eating MORE ice cream!

A few weeks ago when the "end of the world was coming," Daddy thought we should be prepared...

Jillian loves to help "keen up"

We've done LOTS of swimming

 And playing!

We are having a lot of fun with Jillian at this age.  She talks NON-STOP and says the funniest things.  She loves to sing songs and say her prayers.  I've been trying to get it on video, but someone doesn't like to perform for the camera...Oh well!  I'm sure it will happen soon!

Hope you all are enjoying summer as much as we are!

2 year portraits

Oops...I forgot about these!  We went to a portrait party a few weeks before Jillian's birthday.  We got a couple good shots, so we decided to make these her 2 year portraits. 

Lots of updates!

I've finally gotten around to updating the blog!  Testing season is KILLING me!  Look below for FIVE new posts...
