*Spaghetti...Need I Say More?*

Why, oh why do I make Spaghetti? It is the BIGGEST mess to clean up and stains my kids faces! Whatever...they seem to enjoy it!Appetizing Right?

This is AFTER they got cleaned up!
After we made cookies, YUM!

Then got in the Bath. I'm not really sure why they are doing this but they think their pretty funny so that's all that matters.
I love my kiddies so much!

*Hunter Jeffrey*

Hunter and I had the following conversation tonight at dinner:
Hunter: "Mom, say O..."
Me: "Ow"
Hunter "No, No! O...."
Me: "O..."
Hunter: "Yeah, O starts with a B, now say numbers!
Me: "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10"
Hunter: "Good, now say Girl"
Me: "Girl"
Hunter: "YEAH! WORD GIRL!"
Um...Not really sure how that all connects but O.k.

I took some pictures of him while he was outside playing today! I love my boy!

*Skyla Jean*

Where do I start....My sweet little Skyla Jean. I can not believe how much love I have for this little girl! She makes me smile and laugh everyday of my life. When I look back at the last 19 months of her life it amazes me at how far she has come. I'm not going to lie, the first 10 months of her life were extremely...um... ROUGH for all of us, those of you that know us know exactly what I mean. She was the most beautiful little baby girl I had ever seen but she was very sad and sick baby. When I see pictures when she was in the hospital and we almost lost her it makes me cry every time and it puts this ache in my heart. As soon as we figured out what was going on with her little body she blossomed into this outrageously fun, energetic, feisty, amazing little girl and I am so grateful for all of our family, friends, nurses and Doctors for getting us through the struggle.
During the last couple months I have been so distracted with moving and then going right into the holidays that I forgot to take Skyla's 18 month pictures and have her go in for her 18 month check up. So I decided to take her in the back yard and follow her around with my camera, I got a couple of cute shots so here you go:
(I've been playing around in Photoshop with different editing styles...let me know what you like and don't like)

Black & White or Color?

She is kind of starting to talk now, here are a few of her words:
"LET GO!" (this is the most popular, usually she is saying this when her and Hunter are wrestling and she wants him to Get Off.
"Baba" aka Baby
"Uh Oh!" (When she drops something or knows she's in trouble)
"Peas" aka Please
"Mama" and "Dada"
"Kyla" aka Skyla
"What's That?"
"Bye Bye"
"Nigh Nigh"
"Uh Huh!" aka Yes
"Mm Mm!" aka No
Tickle Tickle Tickle (over and over again)
"Juice" "Eyes" "Nose" "Mouth" "Ears"

Her Dr. appointment is on Friday and I'll let you know her Stats...I'm so excited to see how much she weighs and if she is now off the charts in the opposite direction...She is such a chunk now! Love it!
