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 every type of sippy/straw/360 cup that they make. I should be able to claim cups on my taxes. Real talk. I've also tried thinning it out with water, putting water in the bottle, milk in the cup, mixing a teensy bit of chocolate syrup in, etc. Yesterday, I accidentally left her bottle home and guess what? She refused milk ALL DAY! She drank water fine out of a straw cup though. I need help!

She's a joy most of the time. Right now she has 4 teeth coming in...two of which are molars. At least they are coming together, but the child is miserable! She's also in the 93rd percentile for height...and like the 23rd for weight lol. But she eats! I promise!

What is she up to these days:
Running. A lot. Skipping some, eating with a fork (see video below), rolling her eyes with conviction, talking back (although I'm the only one that understands), maybe 25 word vocabulary- dog and roof roof are her favorite, climbs up everything...still hates getting her hair done (by me anyway). She is singing now but I can't for the life of me figure out what...and she still LOVES to dance, so I'm still calling her Boogie...and Butt Butt. She will grow to hate the latter because that's the one that's sticking LOL!

I'm cherishing these days because before I know it she will be starting school! What the world?! I just had her!

Ok, I'm going to wallow in a corner now. Enjoy her latest videos below.

XOXO

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
