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

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…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
