Baby Magic is 16 Months!

You blink your eye and your baby is no longer a baby. Man. This journey is truly zooming by! I need it to slow down just a little. Soon she will be two! Although I'm already experiencing some terribleness at 1! I can only pray that the tantrums subside. Although, I know her sense of independence will only get stronger. Which, I don't think I would ever minimize that...she gets it honestly.

I just can't believe how fast time goes by. I never have time to do anything it seems, yet it seems that I'm always doing SOMETHING! LOL She is a treat...still refusing milk out of anything other than a bottle. Her doctor has recommended a few things to try and I've researched more things to try. Nothing helps. Nothing. She will drink water or juice from almost anything. But milk...nope. Only out of her bottle. And she's even particular about the bottle it's in. Sigh. I would really like to hear what some of you guys have done in this situation. I have seriously bought ev…

This Little Chick! Halloween 2014

How was every one's Halloween? I saw a lot of shade on Facebook about people "celebrating" Halloween. I never understand why people have to be so vocal about things they don't believe in. They aren't nearly as vocal about the things they do believe in. To each their own and SO WHAT if some of us dressed up and took our kids out to get candy?! My crew happened to have a swell little time. What you and your house do is your business...but please stop telling the rest of us what we should and shouldn't be doing. Thanks.

Have you ever read your kid(s) This Little Chick by John Lawrence? Well, Trinity loves this book...even if her mommy doesn't sing it quite right LOL. For Halloween I decided that I wanted her to be a chicken. This was premeditated maybe a month, without doing any Pinterest searching prior to.
