Mylie is now One!

I cannot believe how fast the time flew by. I know everyone says that, but it doesn't seem fair. I try to take her all in. I didn't realize just how quickly you forget the baby stuff until I had Mylie. Talise will ask me something about her babyhood and I struggle to remember. Mylie got to play with another baby yesterday at the Dr.'s office. She was so sweet. Very gentle and smiley. That definitely confirmed that we should have another one. I am going to let her self wean though. I don't want to rush her to grow up. She has gotten brave enough to take a few steps without holding on. It is bittersweet. She got a baby doll on her birthday. She lifted it out of the bag and immediately brought it to her lips for a kiss. She loved on her baby. That act melted my heart. She is just a sweet child. I pray that she stays this way.

My little one will be One in an hour!

It makes me quite sad. One year ago to the minute I was getting ready to push. At 1:18 a.m. she very gently glided out of my womb and into my heart. It only took a couple of pushes to bring my sweet baby girl into this world. She was beautiful from the start. She just barely cried for a minute. I looked at her and giggled. It was a truly blissful moment. I will never forget it. Now I am trying to wind down although my to do list is still buzzing in my head. I've wrapped gifts, baked cakes, somewhat decorated them (still have more to do), and cleaned up a bit. I still have to finish the cakes, finish making her cake shirt, take first birthday pictures, go have her balloons blown up, decorate, cook, get party favors (if other kids are going to come), finish cleaning the house and I'd like to pick up another gift for Mylie and something small for Talise for being such an amazing big sister. I cannot believe it's been a year already. Although it went by quickly it was great. She's such a sweet girl. She's starting to walk! It's difficult not to discourage her! I don't know when or if I will be able to have another baby and I'd like her to stay my baby for longer. She has her one year check up on Monday.

I've decided, I like abuse

Mylie now slaps the crap outta me. She will stand up so she can look me square in the eye and slap me hard enough for her to fall over. It amazes me the look in her eye and conviction behind her slaps. She also bites. She comes in like she's gonna kiss you, but SURPRISE! Where there should be a wet. slobbery mess is now a pinching sharp pain. What fun! Did I mention that she does this while nursing as well? She does! I am really trying to keep breast feeding until her first birthday, which is in eighteen days. I CANNOT believe my sweet baby is about to turn one! I am quite sad over it. On an up note, she gives hugs and kisses often. She is using her walking toy a lot. She looks incredibly adorable pushing it around the house. She can say Emma. I just love her! I am SO blessed to have her. I thank God for letting me raise her. Talise is doing great. She is SO smart. She is the second smartest kid in her class. She has taken up reading more. She is such an amazing big sister. She really looks after Mylie. She's done much better adjusting to not being number one than I had thought she would. She has gotten quite mouthy. She says extremely hurtful things to me when she is angry. I guess that's my fault. I try to explain to her how it makes me feel. As much as I hate to admit it, she gets it natural. Although I would NEVER say the things she says to me to MY mother, I am a name caller. Fernando and I do. We are trying to work on it. It's tough once you get in a routine though. We took the girls to the park today. It was fun. Te first time Mylie ever got in a swing. It scared her at first, but then she liked it. She kept her arms outstretched in front of her the whole time, like she was bracing herself. She smiled the ENTIRE time though. She didn't enjoy the slide as much. We couldn't stay long so I promised Talise we would go back tomorrow after school. It was a great day!

Mommy and Me

Is going great so far. I am really glad I joined. There are only five other women and Mylie is he youngest baby, but we are enjoying it. At least I am. The lady's are all really nice. They seem like my kind of people. I left Mylie in the nursery today. It was the very first time someone I don't really know watched her. I was right across the hall and she did great. They were itching to hold her any ways. She is one of two girls there. The really fret over her. They said she whimpered a bit and when I picked her up she wouldn't reach for me. When I picked her up in my arms she got teary eyed and that was it. I loved on her and she fell asleep in the car on the way home. We met for lunch at a local pizza buffet. It was yummy and inexpensive. Today was a good day!

Snow Day!!!

It ACTUALLY snowed in Georgia and Alabama! I was stuck at work. The weather didn't slow people down, they still came in for all that ails them. Stubbed toe from three months ago, a persistent cough from last year. It never ceases to amaze me the things people will come into the emergency room for. Oh well. The girls had a blast. Well, Talise did. The snow was a little too cold for Miss Mylie. On a side note, Mylie now says thank you (ank oo), and is getting much braver at her attempts to walk. Well, here are some pictures Fernando took of the snow day.
