C 19 month update

C update! Our little man is getting so big! Here are ridiculous amounts some pictures of the things he's up to!

He's way into putting things "in."  I find all sorts of things in the most random places. Most recently decided to put his Tigger in the toilet! :)

C loves to make trips to our little library for story time or just to color and get some new books!

C lets us know it's time to eat by climbing in his chair and saying "Na, na?" (Snack, snack?)

C loves to copy, whether putting on lotion like Mommy, mowing like Daddy, or pretending to talk on the phone. We even caught him the other day with the lid off Hubby's deodorant trying to put it on his arm pits! 

 Had a fever so no shirt! Still playing hard!

 Notice the clever use of diaper package as a step.

New sandals!

Sad this is blurry! Teething on Tigger. He is working on his 2 yr molars!

C loves our neighbor dog, Phoebe, and goes to the fence and calls her, "Bebe!" 

Target is always a fun place to shop because he gets a free cookie! 

Reading with uncle "Do" (Joe)

Playing with Grandma's dog, Tucker.

C will say "Mo" (more) when he likes something or wants more of it. He'll even ask for more of something we have no control over like birds flying out in front of us on walks, loud motorcycle noises, or animals we see on a car ride.

His vocabulary is exploding! He says all sorts of words now; bike, dog, joyce, phoebe, nat, joe, grandpa and grandma, door, scooter, mower, juice, snack, shoes, bath, please, I love you, thank you, meat, strawberries, banana, pajamas, ball, car, etc... It's so fun that he can communicate so much more now!

C is only taking one nap as of about 6 weeks ago and now sleeps 10+ hours a night! Woohoo!

C loves to give Tigger a 'bath' in the washer. Whenever I say I need to do laundry C runs to get Tigger and puts him in the washing machine!

He loves to mooch snacks off Daddy. Whenever Hubby sits down to eat C comes over and says "Mo? Peese?" (More, please?) Of course Daddy always shares.

C brings so much joy to our lives! We are so happy God gave him to us!

We made a trip to a local Dutch community yesterday that has a tulip festival every year. The festival isn't for a couple weeks, but it's been so uncommonly warm that the tulips are at their peak now so we decided on a whim to take the afternoon and head down their with my hubby's parents. It was a fun and beautiful day! 
Here are a few pictures:
Getting ready.....

 ...and "cheese!"
 Smelling the tulips!

 The original fire station from the late 1800's!

 Dutch letters. Pastry rolls stuffed with almond paste. A local tradition and super yummy!
Whenever we go places Hubby always likes to try the local specials and hole-in-the-wall places. I like to do that too, so it works out great! :)

More smelling!

Notice Hubby's death grip on the shirt. C tried to jump in several times.

 I just love these pictures of C holding onto Hubby's hand. ::heartexplosion::

WIWW #28 Preggo

Now that I took the pressure off and only committed to take pictures of one outfit I actually did two this week. :)

 I rediscovered these red shoes that I bought 5-6 years ago and have been wearing them again! Hubby calls them my "Dorothy shoes." :)

Top: Gordman's
Sweater: Target
Necklace: Lisa Leonard
Earrings: Made by me
Jeans: Thrifted, Liz Lange Maternity
 Shoes: Wal-Mart (I know, right?)

 First styling attempt. I've seen some really cute belted pregnancy looks and wanted to try my hand at it. I've had this belt for awhile and the best part is the back is elastic!
 But then I decided I wanted to wear a sweater and the necklace didn't work with all the embellishment on the cardi. Added a different necklace and loved it!

White T: Kohls (You can get a 10% discount that can be combined with one other code using the code BLOGGER10 through June 23)
Top, shoes, and skirt: Thrifted (Target brands and Liz Lange Maternity)
 Cardi: Target
Belt: F21 (It was only $6.50!)
Necklace: Dollar Tree

I was adding up the total of this outfit (because I'm weird like that) and I was surprised at how inexpensive it was! I haven't bought any of the pieces since I found out I was pregnant and most of them are actually 2 or more years old. It's fun to find creative ways to reuse things I already have!

T: $8
Green top: 2.50
Shoes: $4
Skirt $3
Cardi: $7.50 on clearance
Belt: $6.50
Necklace: $1

Total: $32.50  None of the p

 Here's a close up so you can see some more detail:

Thanks for stopping by!
