Day 81

March 29, 2011

I have lots more pictures from today, but since it's potty training day, they're not going to be posted. Munchkin was such a good girl today! She did call the penguins on her shirt "puppies", but she loves them!!

Day 80

March 28, 2011

"Are you ready for Kindermusik?" got a BIG smile and laugh from Munchkin! We even had a friend join us (sadly, no pictures of that!) and had a great time!!

She had to change clothes because her diaper leaked just a tiny bit...good thing we're working on potty training! Munchkin got stung by a fire ant a couple days ago and she irritated the pustule, so it was time for the first band-aid that wasn't shot related! She hated the band-aid on her hand!!!

Day 79

March 27, 2011

I know...super exciting. I've loved "The Cat Who..." series for a long time--in fact, this one was my sisters when she was in jr. high/high school. I don't know how many times I've read this one, but it's still good! I love Koko and Yum Yum! I definitely want to read this series in order!

Day 78

March 26, 2011
MG & Granddaddy bought Munchkin a tricycle for her birthday (that isn't until September) since it was the ONLY pink one we've ever seen and didn't want to risk not being able to find another one close to her birthday. She's shown a ton of interest in bikes lately, she loves to ride in her trailer for my bike, and when we had to go to the bike store for Mark's tire/tube she tried to climb on all the little bikes. So we decided she should be able to use her trike now. She was such a good helper putting it together!!

All done!! She can reach the pedals, just doesn't know what to do with them! Her favorite part? The bell!

I've had Pandora up most of the afternoon and when she woke up from her nap, I switched it over to my Imagination Movers station--she loves it! (And how cute are those jean shorts?!?!)

Day 77

March 25, 2011

Silly Daddy showed Munchkin how to use the bucket as a hat.

Story time with Daddy!! She LOVES this book, it's one with the sounds on the side to press. It needs to get packed away with the Christmas things since it is a Christmas book!

Ahhh, our books have a proper home! I was SO happy the bookcase finally came in, now I can re-arrange and re-organize our laundry room/storage/pantry!

Day 76

March 24, 2011

Munchkin loves her little house and I even find myself bouncing along with some of it's songs!

Day 75

March 23, 2011

Another Munchkin self-portrait. What can I say?? I think it's adorable!!

Strike a pose!

Still life ala Munchkin

Day 74

March 22, 2011

We had to go back to the doctor for our EFMP paperwork for when we move. Munchkin was good and read her book while we waited.

Sweet daddy/daughter moment at dinner. I love my little Rainbow Brite!

Day 73

March 21, 2011

Munchkin had her 18 month well-baby visit--that means shots too! 

Setting up Zumba on the Kinect!!

Munchkin is such a diva when it comes to the camera!!

Day 72

March 20, 2011

A GORGEOUS day and perfect for flying the kite that MG & Granddaddy gave Munchkin!

Munchkin being cute, as always!

Day 71

March 19, 2011

Munchkin REALLY wanted to go outside to play!!

Day 70

March 18, 2011

MG brought the things for Munchkin's Easter dress and we got it 90% done! It's adorable and I can't wait for her to wear it!!!

Day 69

March 17, 2011

Being a VERY silly girl in her green for St. Patrick's Day!!

MG got some very yummy ice cream...Munchkin decided she wasn't feeding her fast enough so she took it on herself!

Munchkin throwing Lightning's frisbee. He's a good sport about it and gets just as excited as he does when we throw it far for him!

Another Munchkin self portrait...and pretty sky.

Day 68

March 16, 2011

Busy day today--new furniture and grandparents coming to visit!! Munchkin was very excited!!!

Our gorgeous new couch!!! SO much more comfortable than our old one!

Munchkin's artistic shot of the night.

We went to dinner--and guess what, free ice cream! Munchkin ate most of her MG's chocolate and a few bites of Granddaddy's strawberry!

Day 67

March 15, 2011

Sweet Munchkin waiting for Daddy to come home. I think it's her favorite part of her day!

Day 66

March 14, 2011

Ball time at Kindermusik!! Munchkin LOVES playing with the beach balls, popping them on the discs is one of her favorite things--the other is kicking them!

Another random picture of Munchkin..."Me?!?!!"

Day 65

March 13, 2011
Munchkin took this lovely picture.

VeggieTales!!!! Can you tell Munchkin was just a little excited?! She LOVES VeggieTales!

We went to Lake Charles to get Mark a new tube and tire for his bike--it's been flat for MONTHS. He's had the bike for 8 years or so and this is the first time he's had to replace it, so he's gotten his time out of it! We headed to the only white sand beach inland from Florida to Texas--Munchkin HATED walking in it. I picked up two sea shells (lake shells?) to take home.

We went for a bike ride when we got home, first time Munchkin has tolerated her helmet and really loved riding in her trailer! Lemme tell you though, that trailer definitely adds to the workout side of bike riding! I absolutely LOVE my bike though, every time I ride it, I always say that!

Day 64

March 12, 2011

Remember Munchkin loving to tickle Daddy?? Well, she strikes again!

Two things I'm super proud of Munchkin for here: 1) She's SO strong! She picked up the laundry detergent bottle and carried it from the kitchen to the laundry room! 2) She's such a great helper--she put it away all by herself, all I had to do was open the drawer.

Random picture of Lightning--he needs more picture love. He's such a good dog, he's definitely set the bar for any future dogs pretty high.

Day 63

March 11, 2011

We went to dinner at a friend's house (they're in the cul-de-sac part of our street) so we walked through the back yard areas so Lightning could run without worrying about him going to the road.

Most of my day was spent cleaning the living room. We were supposed to have one of Mark's friends over for dinner but his dad surprised him by showing up, so he had to cancel (and we got invited to other friend's anyway, so it all turned out well!) Toy corner in it's organized glory--and yes, it does end up looking like this most nights!!

Day 62

March 10, 2011

We had to take Lightning to the vet--this is his records. We had to take them in because they've lost them three times. Thankfully he only goes in for his yearly shots here!!

After the vet, Munchkin and I went to Lowe's to get spray bottles--now I have tea tree oil spray to clean up with! 

Day 61

March 9, 2011
Munchkin was crawling all over the bed while I was trying to get dressed!

Munchkin had to help untie Daddy's boots! She got mad when he tried to do it!

Mark had to do some things in our outside storage area, so Munchkin walked around and clapped for him!

Day 60

March 8, 2011
It feels like much longer than two months have gone by since I started this, but here we are at the 60 day mark!!
Sweet Munchkin in the morning!

Mark took Munchkin on a walk, as soon as that backpack comes out, she runs to it and tries to climb in!!

The FrogPod. That fell down the next day. This is the second bath toy organizer we've had fall off of our shower wall. I thought the first one was just because it was a cheap one with cheap adhesive, but this one is supposed to be the good one! I think it has more to do with our shower wall--so we're going to work out another way to hang it!
