Her sentences are starting to form more and more. Her big thing now is "No walk." We just have to walk away from her and let her cry. Eventually she follows us to where ever we are going, but not after letting us know how unhappy she is with that decision. Oh, and she points to us and says "Shhh." We will tell her no about something and she will whip around and point that finger and go "shh, mommy" or "shhh, Daddy." It is so funny. It's a bad habit, but it is so hard not to laugh at it. She does tell us that we are either nice or not nice depending on the situation. She doesn't say "sorry" yet, but she will give you a hug if you tell her to say "sorry." I tell you, it is toooo much.
That's about it for our world. Have a great rest of the day.

Emilia had a tummy bug this weekend and let me say.....THAT WAS NO FUN!!!!! The poor thing couldn't even keep Tylenol down to help with the fever. It wasn't the virus that bothered me, it was the having to keep her home yesterday and being in limbo between being fine and being sick....the grouchiness, the whining, the clinginess, the not wanting to be touched....the damn dogs! Ugh! I tell you...bless my heart. I was having a hard time yesterday. Thank goodness the fever broke and the vomiting stopped and she was able to go back to daycare today. I love her, she is priceless, but oh....my....goodness....I need a vacation.
In other news, I found out today that one of my dearest friend's father passed away last week. Of course, she is one of my dearest friends, yet I find out about this A WEEK LATER....shame on you Amber! I know you had a ton going on, but let a girl know when you need her! I would have come a runnin'! You and your family are in my prayers! Love you, girl!
In my family news, my parent's got a new member of their household. My Great, Great, Aunt Toni and her cat, Cindy, moved in with my mom and dad this past weekend. Yes folks, that is 2 "greats." Aunt Toni is 93, I can only hope that I make it that long. My Uncle Bud (96) and Aunt Toni (93) came up here about a month ago to stay in a nursing home to be closer to my mom and dad since my mom is the closest relative. Uncle Bud passed away a couple of weeks ago. He was 96. He and Aunt Toni were married 71 years. I can't imagine living for that long, much less being married for that long. I am excited to take Emilia to meet Aunt Toni. I regret that Uncle Bud never got a chance to meet her, but at least Aunt Toni will.
I guess that is it for me today. T-4 days until Miss Emilia is 2 years old! She is getting some good stuff for her birthday. I can't wait to post pictures. She is getting a tricycle for her big birthday present. She is going to love it! I can't wait to see the look on her face.
Have a great rest of the day! Later, peeps!

It, more often than not, is the catch all spot for most families, and for mine as well. For so long we had not used the one we had and then we got rid of it in 2007 and just used TV trays and sat in front of the TV and ate dinner. Ricky and I wouldn't talk very much during dinner time, we were to busy being occupied by the TV...and dinner really should be family time. As I have mentioned in the previous post, a friend gave us a dining room table when we moved into the house and I have to say that I have enjoyed it so much. Granted, half of it has junk on it, but we can all see each other when we eat and actually talk....imagine that. We have only eaten there a handful of times since we have only been in the house 2 weeks and had the table up for 1, but it has been so nice to have face to face time. Maybe this will make us get along better. Things have been so stressed with the move and everything else that has been going on. I find it just so refreshing to be able to sit down and have "family time." No rushing, not much fussing, discussing the day.....like you see on TV. I have missed that, more than I realized. I guess I am just feeling like I am becoming an adult. Who knew a dining room table could that.
Happy Hump Day peeps....later!

Emilia LOVES her new big girl table! We were lucky enough to have a friend give us a table for the new house. It is, by far, the fanciest thing in the house, but that's okay. We put it together one night after Em had gone to bed and the next night she had to sit at it....bye-bye high chair!!! I can't tell you how excited I am about that! So, here she is, her first meal at the big girl table...pork chop, blacked eyed peas and bananas. We did get her a booster seat this week, so she can eat and drink comfortably now. i couldn't even find the phone books for her to sit on, so that was a priority this weekend, for sure!
Well, Ricky and I made it another year without killing each other. Yesterday was our 6 year anniversary! Ricky's mom came over on Saturday to babysit so we could get out and do some shopping that we needed to do. Then for our anniversary dinner, we ordered pizza....what better way to celebrate, right???? It was very low key, we didn't even get each other a card, and it was nice. Yesterday, our actual anniversary, we worked around the house, Emilia had no nap and I was drinking by 6, so at least we had a good time on Saturday.
Two more weeks and my baby girl will be 2 years old! Where did the last 2 years go???? Seriously! She has blossomed so much in the last few months, it's crazy! She now is going through the stages of not listening, deliberately disobeying and "NO!" is her favorite word, "No Mommy, go away" is her favorite phrase. She is into everything....EVERYTHING! Yesterday I was thinking that I was an unfit mother, she had me in such a tizzy. I wanted to beat her senseless!!! She is definitely becoming more independent too...she now picks out her own clothes and can do all sorts of things by herself...and has to do them by herself. She is a mess!
Well, I guess I need to get back to work. Have a great week party peeps.... See ya later!

Speaking of Emilia, we are in the throws of potty training and it is driving me crazy! "Pee-pee potty" allllllll the time, all the time, whether she has to or not. She did go poopy in the potty this weekend though, for the first time. One also slipped out on the floor too, later that day. I try to let her run around without pants on when we are at home, even though Ricky hates it. He's not the one that has to take her to the bathroom every 5 minutes. We are now in the pull ups, we are trying the cool alert ones...sometimes she doesn't seem to mind them though, which pisses me off since she is supposed to be annoyed by it and run to the potty. Oh well, it is a work in progress and we will get there. I am just so proud of her for starting this so early. She will be 2 this month...where does the time go???? I can't believe it. She is getting soooo big. I love her so much!
