Catch Up Time Part 1

For some reason or another I have gotten extremely lazy when it comes to blogging. I have tons of cute pics, but never they never make it own the blog. The next few days I will be putting up a bunch of random pictures to see what this little cutie has been up to the last few months.

Mike and I decided we would tryout the toddler bed attachment for Madeline's crib. It is easy to change out if necessary, but this little girl made the transition smoothly. 

She has decided she needs more things in her bed, but she stays put until we open the door. It is almost like that is her "permission" to get out of her bed.

I can't believe how big she looks in the picture. Where did my little baby go? I am a little sad, but she is turning into a sweet little girl.

Her friends seem to always accompany her everywhere. I am telling you we have a hoarder on our hands. She always tries to get every toy she is playing with at the time to bring them into the living room, to eat with or to put in the car. I think she gets that from my side of the family, but not me! haha

In addition to her hoarding she started lining up her toys. She places them in a line and gets very angry if the fall or will not stand up like she wants them to.

The longer her hair gets the more curls this girl has....all I can say is I am In LOVE with this hair!!!!! 

She also has turned into Linus...she needs three blankets to go to bed and each morning brings them all out into the living room. She calls them "tuffs" I have no idea where that came from. She sleeps with her dog, princess, bunny and baby. 

She also turned 21 months in August. I know she is almost 22 months know, but like I said I have been lazy. 

She is talking more every day and repeats almost anything you say to her. She knows says I lub you...all on her own know. I never get tired of hearing it!! She also likes to give kisses or ask for sugar/hugs and says she loves you. We enrolled her in gymnastics, a music class and she will start preschool next week. Her independent play is better and she loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse thanks to her good friend Landry. :) She also moved up in her Sunday school class. I don't know what happened in transition, but she has blossomed. Mike and I are so proud of our little sweetie. She is growing up too fast!!!

Enjoying some Mickey Mouse with her daddy. 

No Toys Necessary!

Who knew unloading the dishwasher would be so fun and lead to a new discovery? Who needs toys when you can play with a really cool "truck."

Surprisingly no batteries required!

It even "beeps" and "vrooms!"

Megan Visits Abilene

Each summer our niece, Megan comes to Abilene to spend a week with us. Basically she gets lots of love, sugar, and gets to do ALL the things her parents don't let her! We even manage to do some fun things together and hang out (that is the cool part about being and Auntie and an Uncle). Her parentals can't say much because they are 2 1/2 hours away and unless there are pictures, there is not any evidence of what goes on in A-town! :)

We visited the Grace Museum. As you can't tell both girls had lots of fun!

One of Megan's favorite things when she visits is to cook and bake cupcakes. She helped me with dinner several times through out the week. She even makes rice better than Mike does! :) haha

The trip is not complete without making cupcakes!

Madeline enjoyed it as well!!

We visited Prime Time, played at the mall, went shopping, jammed out to Justin Bieber, swam and spent some good quality time together. Can't wait until next summer!
