We finally chose a lot and signed a contract to build our house!  Thank goodness!  Now if only it would hurry up and be built already...I cannot wait to have my own home again and I am so super excited about the neighborhood we are building in! 

Lolo got a new toy!  She loves it!  And she is not spoiled at all...Gotta love a good deal on totsy!

And for some reason, she also loves her toothbrush and immediately puts the brush part in her mouth as soon as I give it to her.  She has 2 teeth now, maybe I should start brushing them?!

Lolo is still obsessed with her blankie.  She has to have it to put herself to sleep these days.  It is the sweetest thing.  The other day she was getting tired while we were playing, hence the toy on her head, so I gave it to her and she immediately puts it up to her mouth and starts to try to soothe.  I just think its so sweet.

We went out on a family date to eat Chinese food on Friday and Lolo had a blast!  She was so good, as usual.  This girl loves to eat, and play with her food, and drop most of it on the floor.  I feel like we should tip really well these days?!?

The next morning when she woke up, she was in the best mood!  Full of smiles and laughing!  She loves to look at herself in my phone!  She cracks herself up.

Andrew's First Fathers Day!

I am pretty sure Andrew had a great first Father's Day spending time with Lolo Bear.  She sure is getting to be so much fun and full of such a sweet personality!  We didn't do much, just hung out together and enjoyed quality time, but it was a great day! 

Andrew is the best daddy to Lolo!  He loves her so much.  She is one blessed little girl and she sure loves her daddy!

Lexi's 2nd Birthday Party!

Lexi's 2nd Birthday party was so much fun!  My sister is such a great party planner and I am so lucky, because I will get to use all her creative props ;)

Lolo seemed to finally be feeling better for her party!  She was so happy that day...little did we know what was in store for us that night....

I love this picture of Lexi!  Her face cracks me up!

Too bad Lolo was sleeping and couldn't be in this picture!

I can't believe Lexi is TWO!  Such a sweet little girl.  So much like her Aunt Coco :)

Lolo has started to feed herself her bottle when I am at work.  Big Girl! 

My neice Lexi LOVES Lolo.  She throws a crying fit every time I go and pick her up from my sister when she watches her.  And in the morning when I drop her off, Lexi is quick to tell me to sit "wowo in chair," and "bye bye coco."  Funny stuff!  

I got to watch my sweet niece when for my sister this past weekend...She loves her Aunt Coco!  She also has started hugging me and telling me she loves me.  Melts my heart.

Lo has been sleeping all night long for over a week now!  She was doing so when I wasn't working, but after I went back to work she had started waking up once a night to eat because she is a stubborn one and hates the bottle.  I think she was making up for what she wasn't getting during the day, that, and the fact that she wanted to cuddle with me ;)  But ever since she decided that she actually liked real food, she has been sleeping so well!  It's wonderful!  Now, if only I could get myself to sleep through the night....

I love baby led weaning!  I am a fan!  It is cheaper, easy to do, and Lo loves it!  I'll do a post on it soon!

I don't have great cell phone service at work and it is seriously driving me insane, any suggestions on how to get better service?  Anyone?

I am so excited about our family vacation to the beach, that I blog about it every week!

My aunt and cousin are coming to visit in 2 weeks! 

I can't believe Father's Day is this weekend.  It seems like just yesterday was Mother's Day! Time flies! 

I have saved more milk than I know what to do with and throwing it away just kills me, so I have decided to donate it.  You would think I was donating a kidney by how intense the process it to give free milk away.  I understand though...Hopefully this will all be shipped soon, pending my DNA test...

I was introduced to these amazing cookies from my good friend Cerissa.  All they require is a stick of butter and an egg and they are delicious!  Trust me...even though they do come from a bag ;)

My sister bought Lexi a wagon for her birthday and Lolo just loves riding in it!  The other day when I was getting her out she started crying because she wanted to stay in it. 

We went to Maelee's 2nd birthday party this past weeked in OKC at the zoo!  It was fun!  I wish I would have taken more pics though.  It was in a tree house.  Such a cute place! 

And because you can never have enough pictures...Here is my sweet girl again.  I just love her to pieces.

Lolo turned 8 months yesterday.  I just can't believe it!  Where has the time gone?!?  She is at such a fun stage though.  I just love her to pieces!  I will get her 8 month old post up soon. 

I have an app on my phone called project 365 that I have taken a pic of Lolo every day since she has been born.  I look through it all the time, I just love it!  And I highly recommend this app.  Its bittersweet to see how much she has changed in 8 months!  What a blessing!

I ordered Lolo a fun new toy!  So excited to get it in!  It shipped yesterday!!  Yes, I am one of those crazy people that always tracks the shipping on things I order, I just get so excited for mail :)

Lolo - Eight Months

Dear Lolo,

You are eight months old (June 5th)?!?  I can't believe it!  Where is the time going?!?  We just love you so much sweet girl.  You continue to be the happiest, sweetest baby I have ever been around.  You are such an incredible blessing to us and our love for you just continues to grow, not sure how, but it does.  You have seemed to really take off this past month.  You are loving food, as long as you get to feed yourself.  But you do let me feed you yogurt, and act like you LOVE it! You open your mouth when you are ready for me to give you more.  You still love avocados and broccoli.  And you love strawberries!

You are acting like you may want to crawl soon, but still aren't quite sure yet.  Which is fine with me!  I will continue to hold you and carry you every where for as long as you will let me. 

You started rolling all over the place at the beginning of the month and when I get u up in the morning you are in a completely different place and position than you were when I laid you down. 

You started talking a lot this month and there are times when it seems like you are singing to us.  Its so cute and we can't help but laugh at you.  You said mama on my birthday and now you are saying dada, sweetest sound ever.  When I get my phone out to take a picture, this is what you do now.  Trained?!?  Happy girl!

You had your first sickness.  It was so sad.  I blogged about it here.  Seeing you in pain and not being able to help you was the worst feeling ever.  So glad you are better and that it was short lived!  Even when you were sick, you were still happy.  This is you being sick...

You loved the pool and are starting to play in the bathtub.  You want to sit up now like a big girl and splash water. 

Just a day shy of turning 8 months you started doing a pincher grasp to feed yourself.  You fell asleep on your daddy the other day.  So sweet!  You sure do love that blankie!

Daddy and  I took you to the zoo again.  You were a little tired, but I think you loved the giraffs as much as I do :)

We just love you so much Lolo.  You are such a dream come true and have blessed us in more ways than you will ever know.  It seems like you have become such a big girl recently.  It makes me so sad that you are growing so fast, but at the same time you are just so much fun. 

Lexi wanted to get in your 8 month picture too.  She just loves you so much.  But then when she got in the picture she wouldn't smile. Silly girl!

Lolo, I pray you always know how very loved you are.  You are the sweetest little girl and we are so blessed to be your parents.
