Jillian's 1st Parade

Last night we took Jillian to the CBHS Homecoming parade. She has never been to a parade before, so we were excited to see how she would like it. Of course being the bad mommy that I am...I forgot my camera. However, there were a lot of good mommy's there that were nice enough to share their pictures with me!

Holding Mommy's hand like a good Big Girl!

Patiently waiting with her new buddies (and a little belly showing) for the parade to start.

Unfortunately, once the parade started, the sounds were all a little much for our princess. She would cry "no, no, no!" and clap all at the same time. It was too funny! But we decided to pack it up early and leave before we stressed her out too much. She had a blast playing before the parade, though! Maybe next time will go a little better...we'll see!

Feast or Famine...

I know it's been forever since I updated the blog, but I have really good reasons! We've all been sick, had visitors, work, and life in general. There are several posts below (4 to be exact!) to catch up on everything. I promise to update more frequently...or at least attempt to. :)

And the obsession continues...

She loves walking in Mommy and Daddy's shoes!


I love these two more than life!

Mother's Day Out

Jillian started Mother's Day Out the day after Labor Day. I was a little nervous about sending her, but I'm glad we decided to do it. I've really seen her blossom since she's been going the past couple weeks.

Cheesin' it up with her backpack on the first day

Let's get this show on the road!
I wish I could say the first day went as well as it looks in this picture. I couldn't get any pictures at her school because they ask you to drop them off then RUN!! Of course Mommy hid around the corner for a little while to make sure she would be ok. I think if the other kids wouldn't have cried, she would've been fine, but that didn't happen. After the first day, she was much better, though. She still cries if she's not the first kid picked up because she wants to "bye bye" whenever anybody else gets to go! I will say I've gone through my fair share of Mommy guilt, but I'm so glad that she's getting some socialization and I feel very comfortable with her school.

17 months

I know this is VERY late, but I figure I should go ahead and do it anyway.
Our little munchkin turned 17 months on September 3rd. She doesn't look too happy to be 17 months, does she?? That's because everytime I get out the camera now, I get this...

Which is really sad considering most of the time we hear this...

Not much of her stats have changed...teeth are the same, clothes and diaper sizes are the same. However her feet seem to be growing as fast as her vocabulary! We've gone through about 3 shoe sizes this summer!

Granny came to visit us last month and we went to the aquarium at Moody Gardens. Jillian loved spending time with her Granny!

We have so much fun with our little munchkin!
