T minus 30 days…

Until Andee is 1 year old!  Yep, she was 11 months old yesterday!  I can’t believe it when I say it.  It seriously seems like just a month or two ago when I was in labor for 7 days.  Okay, maybe not 7 days, but those people that say you have other babies because you forget how long and hard labor is..they are crazy.  I haven’t forgotten one bit of it.  Maybe people have other babies because when they are 11 months old they are sweet and beautiful like this one…

sometimes the medicine tubes work better than the actual medicine at soothing the baby. yes, that is a tube of orajel in andee's hand. i'm not a horrible mom...i screwed the top on really tight.

you might be wondering why she is making this face. i believe it's because she woke up this morning with her first tooth poking through! big girl. her face seems to be stuck this way.

Da-da went out through these doors and didn't come back..where did he go?

So Andee at 11 months…still pulling up on everything, letting go and standing on her own a bit, trying to drop her morning nap, crawling all over Ollie, eating lots of big girl foods, and moving like crazy!  She never seems to slow down unless she is sleeping.  Loves crackers, yogurt, cheese, and most fruits.  Hates pasta, sitting still, and mommy leaving the room.

One more month until the big celebration Andee 🙂 We love you.

Prom, Snookie, The Situation, and Mother’s Day…

4 very important things that have been going on in our lives…

Prom was the last weekend in April.  Cynthia went with her boyfriend Ben and they had a great time.  Here are some pics before they headed to dinner…

After prom, the adults hosted an After Prom Party.  They asked Young Life if we would help host the events and run the evening.  So Steve and I transformed into Snookie and The Situation from Jersey Shore (we called ourselves Pookie and The Circumstance in order to avoid a lawsuit).  At the risk of total embarrassment, here you go…

Yesterday, we celebrated Mother’s Day.  I truly feel blessed each day to be Andee’s mommy.  But it was nice to have a day where Steve got me a sweet card and A BUTTLOAD OF SPA SERVICES that I can use for a day at the spa.  I was very happy 🙂  But most of all I was happy because of this face…(the one on your right of course)
