{Katie’s Baby Blog} Lily is 18 Months Old!

18 Months is a BIG half birthday! Celebrating my baby halfway to two years old is a crazy thought!

Time really does fly…the days are long and the years SO short.

So, i’ll tell you about Lily at 18 months… she talks non-stop! She’s a big talker! I’m thinking it might have something to do with her Mom talking for a living…just a guess 😉

She repeats everything we say. She understands what we’re saying and she can pretty much tell me what she wants and when.

At her 18 Month doctor appointment on Monday, the doctor said he was “very impressed” with her speaking! Yay!

She is running, which means my husband and I are running FASTER just to keep up with her. Her favorite thing to do is “go outside” and run around our house, climb the big hills and find the “tractors.” She is obsessed with tractors or lawn mowers. She is so funny…I think we made a big deal about my husband mowing the lawn one day and watching him, so now she loves watching all of our neighbors mow their lawns, too (they probably wonder why we’re watching them, but oh well!).

Also…if you can’t tell from the pictures I post on my Instagram or Facebook, she is tall!!! This girl has LONG legs and is growing out of her clothes so fast! Speaking of clothes…she is also a serious shoe lover (also probably gets that from me….oops!!), we have to try on each pair of her shoes everyday. She even likes to put on her snow boots and walk around the house in them!

She is the sweetest baby in the whole world, too. She gives out kisses all day long and tells us “I love you, Mama or Daddy!”

I just can’t get enough of her!!! <3

 

 

{Katie’s Baby Blog} Mother’s Day

It was my second Mother’s Day this year and it was just as special as my first.

This year my little girl is almost a year and a half and is so busy, talking and running around, playing in the yard and the best part…she tells me “I love you, Mama” all of the time.

My favorite words in the whole world from my favorite little girl <3

We spent the day playing outside- she loves to play on the Step 2 Roller coaster and ride the car down the hill. She also loves throwing balls and then running after them and riding around in little cars.

Looking back at the picture of her last year on Mother’s Day being so little, it made me excited for the future…knowing how much she has changed in a year, how much she has grown and even a new little thing like hearing her saying “I love you” is so special. I can’t wait for more!

We filled our bellies with delicious snacks and food and then Lily took a loooong nap, so during that nap, Mom had a cocktail 😉

I had the best Mother’s Day…relaxing and spending the day with family and my sweet girl.

 

{Katie’s Baby Blog} Easter Fun!

Easter may have looked a little different this year….watching church services streaming on social media, finally getting dressed up in something a little nicer than comfy clothes and not being able to have a big family dinner with siblings, cousins and the entire crew, but we made it work and Lily had such a fun day!

We started out with her finding her little Easter basket in the living room filled with unicorn slippers (shes obsessed with my slippers), her very own set of {play} car keys (she always wants to play with our keys), a cute new bathing suit, bunny ears, new forks and spoons and candy!

Then, we started cooking (a new recipe from Easter dinner coming to Katie’s Kitchen this Friday!) and played with her new toys.

After a short mid-morning nap, we had lunch and then she saw that there were Easter eggs hidden all over our back yard! ..She figured out that there was candy inside the eggs that were in her basket that morning so, she immediately wanted to go open all of the eggs hidden! So, we got dressed in her Easter dress, that we’ve been waiting weeks to wear, and headed outside!

She was so funny making excited faces and pointing at the next new egg she spotted! We had a blast!…and she got to eat A LOT of mini M&M’s 🙂

It was a different Easter than we’re used to, but we will take it!
