Happy 11 Months Lilly!

My baby is 11 months old today!! I can't believe she will be 1 in one month! Lilly is still an absolutely sweet baby, but is also getting her own little personality (and temper-yikes!). She can be the sweetest thing, giving hugs & kisses to everyone--including her family, all her toys, and even Tucker. She loves animals. Her favorites are kitties, doggies, pigs, and cows. She can 'woof woof' and 'mooooooooo'. She also loves to look at books. She will sit and look at a book for quite a while and loves when we read to her. Lilly is also super smart (we think :)). When she is holding the book upside down, she knows and turns it rightside up. She also just seems to learn things very quickly (except the word NO)! She says 'HI' to everyone she sees (over and over again!) and also 'dada', 'dog', and 'mama'. She has the BEST smile...she grins from ear to ear and it is absolutely adorable. She is so good natured and usually very easy-going. She is incredibly independent and wants to do everything herself! Lilly has a little sense of humor too. She loves to laugh and knows how to get a laugh out of mom & dad! She also has a temper!! When she gets frustrated or we take something away from her, she gets SO mad! She will throw herself on the ground and sob...she is our little drama queen! We are working on 'NO' with Lil, and it is not going so well. She pretty much just smiles or gets mad and does it again. But it is a work in progress and she will eventually learn. I just love love love her sweet little hugs. She wraps both of her little arms around my neck and squeezes her face in my neck or shoulder. LOVE IT!! Lilly can crawl extremely fast. I have a feeling when she learns to walk, she will just go straight to running!! She stands up and cruises on walking is probably in the near future. We are currently working on table food. She is not so thrilled with real veggies and fruit, but we have found a few winners. She likes peas, toast, applesauce, potatoes, and LOVES cheese. Lilly loves taking baths, walking with her walker, playing with Tucker, going on walks, swinging, and loves her mommy & daddy. We are so incredibly blessed and lucky to have such an amazing, loving, fun, and feisty little girl! We love you tons Lilly!!!

Just Venting..

Today was a little stressful. Nothing big happened...just tiny little things slowly making me more annoyed as the day went on.

First of all, I woke up early to a stormy yucky day.

Had a meeting at Starbucks this morning where I got COMPLETELY drenched...seriously, my skirt was sopping..I could squeeze water out of it.

Lilly was incredibly cranky all day...teething :(

I picked her up and we bumped foreheads, and now we both have bumps :(

Stupid Tucker ruined our blinds in the guest bedroom! I went out to get the mail and he freaked! Completely tore down and broke the blinds...

...I fed Lil and then gave her a bath. I left her half full baby food containers on the table. I came downstairs to find food and shredded paper towels ALL over the floor...AHHH Tucker!!! I am very close to opening the door and saying bye bye Tucker.

My house is still a mess from getting home from vacation. Our suitcases are still downstairs. I feel like I can't catch up!!

I still haven't been to the grocery since we've been home, so blah mozzerella sticks and frozen pizza for dinner. gross!!!

Okay...done venting. :)

Wednesday: Scallops & shrimp at Morgan Creek Grill

Gotta love eating out everyday!! We did a lot of swimming, reading, walking on the beach, looking for shells, eating ice cream, laying out, eating, playing Harry Potter Uno, euchre, and we even managed to play some beer pong! Don't worry, Lilly was sleeping :)

Here are some pictures!
