Here is my little girl wearing her daddy's shoes while sporting her super cool new monkey jammies. Right after this picture was taken, she folded AND put away that whole hamper of clothes! (A mom can dream, right?)
This is a picture of my sweet little girl sleeping like a weirdo. =)
So I guess today wasn't a very good picture taking day for us. So here is today's picture. :)
This is Lizzie standing in front of the tv probably watching Nick Jr. but I can't really tell what it is. There is also a kitty on her shirt. When we would say, "Where is the kitty?" she would look down at her shirt and sometimes would say, "kitty!" So smart. :)
I don't remember if I posted about it or not, but a couple months ago, Lizzie managed to get out of her crib. I was watching her on the monitor as Nate was on his way to go get her out. All of a sudden, she was gone! Nate opened her door right then and said, "whoa!" I was already scrambling out of bed and saying "Is she out?? Is she out??" When he opened the door, apparently she was standing beside her crib. What a punk!
I have been worried about this happening ever since the day she turned 9 months old and learned to pull herself up. The front of this crib seems sooo low, even though it is on the lowest setting. (We very recently discovered that it has been recalled for other reasons, so we'll be getting it replaced soon anyway.)
So this is a picture of our solution for her escaping! We turned the crib around so the higher, back side of the crib is facing out and the really low, front side is facing the wall. And then we put parts of her baby jail on each side to keep her from getting out there. So far it has kept her contained!
This was Lizzie this morning when we went in to get her. She plays this binky throwing game with us, where basically we fetch the binkys she throws out of the crib. We just laugh and laugh and laugh... She is pretty fun. ♥
The day started with Lizzie sleeping in until ten. TEN! It was awesome. Then we tried to get her to color me a pretty picture for my Mother's Day gift, but she mostly just hoarded the crayons and occasionally tried to eat them.
For supper, mom, dad, Joey, Michael, Grandma Connie and Grandpa Norm came over. Nate grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and sweet corn. Yummm... It is so nice spending time with family.
Even though Lizzie was still being a bit of a punk because of her teeth, I had a great day with my girl and my family. And now some pictures... =)
Nate thinks it is funny to put his socks on Lizzie. :) That is her masterpiece sitting in front of her. Nate turned it into my Mother's Day card from both of them.
I tried to get a decent picture of Lizzie and I today, but she wasn't very cooperative.
Lizzie and her Great-Grandpa Norm having a chat.
Lizzie playing with her Great-Grandma Connie. I'm not sure who enjoyed the toys more!
Today Nate and I got to go on a date while Gammie watched Lizard! (We went to Spaghetti Works and to see "Date Night" which was really quite funny!)
Lizzie is still feeling pretty crummy. :( She does okay after getting motrin or tylenol. And for the last few days she has been clinging like a monkey when she gets put down for her nap. Then she cries for anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes. I don't know why. :(
In this picture, Elizabeth looks so little just lounging on the couch. =)
Today we went to get Lizzie's picture taken at Photos by Jacqueline from that prize that she won through that dumb newspaper contest. She wasn't very cooperative! Poor baby still wasn't feeling the greatest. Of course, all of the pictures are cute because they are of Lizzie, but I've just seen better from her! She did get one super duper precious picture that mom and I both ordered an enlargement of. Can't wait to get it back!
Also! Today mom was holding Lizzie on the couch and I was walking towards the kitchen and Lizzie waved at me and then said, "mama!" I turned around and said, "mama!" back to her and she said it again!! Freakin finally! ♥♥♥ It was music to this mama's ears!!
In this picture, Lizzie and Molly are having a heart to heart.
Today Lizzie wasn't feeling all better. :( But at least she didn't throw up again other than a little spit up with her bottles. She coughs and chokes on her milk. Poor girl!
And some big news! I got the smallest of glimpses inside Lizzie's mouth and I saw that a MOLAR has started to poke through! On the bottom ont he right side. Crazy! She never lets me get a good look at her mouth so I had no idea a molar was even close to coming through. What a tough girl! =)
This is a picture of a GIANT BABY!!! AHHH!!! hehehehe....
Today Lizzie got sick. :( Grandma Judy baby sat today and had to clean up her puke twice. After Lizzie threw up for the third time in her crib, Nate and I came home from the office. Poor girl had a 103 degree temp. I hope she is feeling all better by tomorrow. I love her so much.
This is Lizzie lounging on the floor. She feels so yucky. =(
In this picture, Elizabeth is chatting away on the phone. She is so cute.
Today Lizzie fell asleep on me while I was reading to her before her nap. It was the cutest, sweetest cuddle in the world. In fact, I am pretty sure this snuggle tied with all of her other snuggles with me. Holding your sleeping baby is the most special, wonderful time ever. While I'm holding her I just think about how little she is and who she'll grow up to be and what she will decide to do with her life and it drives me a little crazy that she isn't going to stay my little baby forever. So today my daughter gave me a magical moment that I will hold onto in my heart and treasure forever.
I am pretty sure she was just making up for the fact that she pooped in the bath tub for the first time EVER this morning.
Today we all hung out at home all day. We went downstairs and Lizzie enjoyed playing on the stairs. Probably because she knows that stairs are dangerous! It was so cute though, so I had to grab my camera... =)
Peaking around the corner at daddy
After I told her she couldn't stand up on the stairs, she sat down and looked sad and precious.
In this picture, Elizabeth is dancing to Famer Tad on her little barnyard magnet thing on the fridge. I LOVE that she is working those shoulders again! She is the best dancer in the whole world. ♥
Today Lizzie, mom, and I went to visit Grandma Connie at Hillcrest in Bellevue. Elizabeth had a blast running around there. She would take off running down a hall way as fast as she could, especially if someone was following her. If we hid, she would usually turn around and come back.
I think she is getting over her fear of strangers though! Or at least starting to. I think this because she smiled and waved to almost everyone who walked past instead of running to me. She watched as a group of people walked by and then just started following them down the hall. She also ran into ao room where two ladies were laying in bed and went behind the curtain and everything! They seemed to love her though. She gave them her most beautiful smiles!
In this picture, Lizzie is using her ring toys as bracelets. She actually has 2 on each arm. I love her. ♥
