A little something to tide you over...

Here are a couple of pictures from Thanksgiving to tide you all over. I wasn't feeling well this weekend (darned headaches and junk) and so I didn't get it all together, but I'm going to try to post some more tomorrow night after Lauren goes to bed. One pic is Lauren with her cousins Megan and Adam at Uncle John and Aunt Shirley's on Thanksgiving day. The other is Lauren and Daddy at Grandma Lori's house and then Lauren and Lauren walking around Grandma Lori's house, all from Thanksgiving weekend. More to come later!

I am horrible at this!

Ok, so I know it has been MONTHS since I have updated. I'm so sorry. I'm so zoned by the time school gets done and Lauren goes to bed that it's ridiculous. Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for an update this weekend. I am DETERMINED to get back on track with this! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Lauren enjoyed Christmas very much and was very blessed with many wonderful gifts and lots of cute new clothes. She is walking now (YAY and YIKES ALL IN ONE) and she is talking up a storm. Some of her favorite things to say are: hi, bye, Mommy, Daddy, Teddy (her bear), Leo (her lion), Abby (her Abby Caddabby doll), baby, nanny (banana), Gacie (Gracie our cat), Incy (Quincy, the sitter's dog), meow, moo, neigh, oink, baa, eye, nose, bubbles, bath, hello, wa-wa (water), cracker, yeah, no, num-num (yummy or hungry) and today she said wow, cool and ok. I think we are in some serious trouble with this one. She's going to be one crazy little kid. She had a great time with her friend, Claire who was here over Christmas from England and she is looking forward to her next meeting with Luke and Lucy. Lauren has been talking to Grandma and Grandpa F on the phone as well as G-G Lois and Grandma Lori. She also has started eating with a fork and is enjoying writing with crayons and her new aquadoodle that Santa brought her. So, hope you are all well and we'll talk to you soon! Love you all!

A fun little video

Ok, so Lauren loves Hannah Montana. We have a Hannah cd that we listen to on our way home from daycare and she rocks out in the backseat. It's so funny. Today I started the cd in the parking lot and videotaped some of what she does on the way home. It's too funny. If you get the chance, you have to check it out in real life!

still more birthday pics...

More birthday girl...

Birthday girl!!!!

I cannot believe our baby is a year old! How the time has flown! I want to thank everyone that helped to make it so special. We are so blessed in so many ways. Lauren is healthy, beautiful, smart beyond imagination, funny, loving, amazing. She is truly our joy and happiness. Here are some pictures from her birthday parties.

I'm such a bad blogger...

Sorry everything has gone down the drains lately. My job is hectic and I just haven't been posting. I'm just going to make a bunch of random photo posts. Enjoy!

Lauren's little laugh

Here's some video of Lauren laughing during dinner. She thinks this silly little pirate thing I do is funny.

World Traveler

Five states in eight days... makes for a sleepy little traveler.

Just for kicks

My friend, Ivy, made this hilarious picture of Lauren and sent it to me. Thought I would share. It makes me laugh.

Mmmmm.... yogurt

Nekkid baby

Holla at my peeps!

Lauren was wearing her new outfit from Susan, Oliver and Claire today, so we took some pictures and Lauren just wanted to say hi and we love you all and miss you very much!!!!!

Lauren and her Great Grandma

Lauren and I spent the night at her Great-Grandma's house and we had a great time. Lauren was all over her house inspecting her pretty collectables. We love you G-G!!!!

Fun with Family

While we were down home, we met up with Uncle Cory, Uncle Eric, and cousins Jack and Caleb at Grandpa Norm's (again, I didn't take pictures there, AUGH!) and from there, Cory, Eric and the boys (and Lauren and I) went back to the hotel where Eric and the boys were staying and went swimming. Grandma Lori came over for a bit, too, to hang out. We had a great time. Lauren lapped up the pool water like a puppy. I have no idea why she does that.

Lauren with Grandma and Grandpa

We were able to spend some time with Lauren's Grandma and Grandpa recently and I wanted to share these pictures. Lauren had a great time. She also got to spend some time with our friend, Andrea, but I didn't get pictures!!! AUGH! Lauren loves to walk around with Grandpa and check things out. We also had our first "big girl bath" in the bathtub without a baby bath and Grandma did a great job!

Lauren loves her Ainsleigh

Last week Lauren and I had the chance to go down and visit with family and friends and Lauren got to spend some time with her friend, Ainsleigh. They are so sweet together and I wish I had more pictures, but I wanted to share the two that I have. Ainsleigh is so smart and sweet and gorgeous and she likes to play with and take care of Lauren (and she does a great job!).
