Happy 18 Months Princess!

My beautiful baby princess turned 18 months yesterday. Half way to being 2! She is such an amazing, smart, beautiful little angel. I don't know what I did to deserve to be her mommy but I'm so happy that she was given to me. Her stunning hazel eyes, that goofy crazy laugh she does, how she sticks her tongue out and opens her mouth when I say 'Let me see!'. I taught her to sort of sign I love you yesterday and it was adorable! She is learning so fast, growing at an amazing rate-I blink my eyes and she's changed. Its amazing how you think you have your life set and under control, then this tiny little creature comes along and throws your whole world into a tailspin, and you couldn't be happier about it....being a mommy is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Princess, you are my beautiful daughter, and I love you more than I ever thought possible!

Happy 18 months baby girl!

Why wont she sleep???

Princess has never been a very good sleeper (ever) but the last two nights I swear she's trying to kill me. She went to bed at 10:30 last night!!! Not fussy, not crying, not even really playing-just didnt want to go to sleep. She gets so hurt though when I put her in bed and tell her its bedtime and to stay in bed, and it breaks my heart to see her so sad and hurt (and to know I'm the one who caused it) but I just don't know what to do!! I think maybe she just wanted to spend time with mommy, but she wouldn't just settle down and sit on the couch-she wanted to jump and throw herself around.

I know I can't give in everytime she looks heartbroken, or I'll be dealing with a spoiled brat, but when she is still to young to totally understand what I'm telling her I feel horrible for hurting her feelings.

I'm such a pushover mommy.....

Oh Fall, How I've missed thee...

Its FINALLY Fall! Things I love about the fall...
  • FOOTBALL SEASON! Hook 'em Horns!
  • Halloween & Thanksgiving
  • Wearing comfy sweaters and sexy boots
  • My birthday!
  • The crisp clear weather
  • The smells-pumpkin spice, vanilla, cold air
  • The State Fair of Texas!!!

I just love everything about fall. It makes me feel like a kid again for some reason. A perfect day is being able to wear leggings, a lightweight jacket, boots and walking around the state fair with a corn dog and a cold Fireman's #4!

Come on Fall!!!
