all done Momma, Dada, Momma, Dada

Our 18 month and 4 week old (yes, I'm milking each day until the actual day is here and she turns 19 months) yesterday put words together so perfectly - we can't take it. When we asked her, "Are you all done eating?" she replied, sweetly -

"All done Momma, Dada, Momma, Dada"

She said it in the tiniest, most darling voice ever. I'm secretly in love with this age - even with the "I'M NOT GETTING DRESSED!" tantrums. Wow, this gets better and better.

Little reminders...

I am sitting here in front of the computer looking at old pictures (I was actually looking for some wedding shots, but instead found a pregnancy and then the delivery folders!) I can't believe that our baby girl - pictured here at 18 weeks - is now 18 months. What the ????

Not only did I find pictures, but I also found video - including hospital video, delivery video, and welcoming home video. Jake and I look so clueless in all of it. Didn't know what to expect. Didn't know what to do, say, ___ (fill in the blank.)

AND - I was sooo big at the 42 weeks (yes, our baby girl was 2 weeks late!) Wowza. BIG-BIG-BIG all over.

Just today I was thinking of wanting to get pregnant again. Hmmm, I think I'll enjoy summer and each day with our growing toddler instead for now...

Time Warp....

I drove at 9pm last week on a sunny weekday. It was so strange....The world seemed different. People were out at the park - just hanging out. Some folks were at bars....The world keeps on moving, while we sit in our little corner with a toddler who sleeps VERY WELL now (knocking on a HUGE piece of wood right) - but goes down as early as 5:30pm.... It was so strange to see everyone out and living and having fun. I sorta feel like I fell off the planet for 2 years now - heck, since pregnancy when I was napping A LOT and going to bed EARLY. Oh well, I guess I'll return to planet Earth one day....

little accomplishment....

I finished it! I finished it! I want to run up and down the streets singing, "I finished a smock dress for our daughter! I actually got out the sewing machine and did it."

1 sewing machine + 1 pattern book + many sewing lessons years ago in NYC = 2 days of accomplishment.

Whew, that wasn't easy, but I'm glad I did it. Our toddler seems already a bit tall for it, but heck, it's A.) done and B) could be a shirt too. ;)
