Dear Weatherman,

Yesterday morning we woke up to something quite bizarre.... 
SNOW!!


I know.  We thought it was pretty shocking too.
Snow?!?  Really??  I think the weatherman didn't get the memo that it is almost April. 


To warm us up, it helps to looking at pictures from just a few weeks ago...when it actually was warm.

This picture is one of my favorites...

    
She looks so sweet and innocent. 


And in this one, she is looking like she is planning her next move... 



Hopefully the weatherman will get with the program and bring the warm back... 
since it is late March and all.

"Moo"ving on Up

I had the first of probably many "mama meltdowns" a few weeks ago... I realized that my baby is  growing up way too fast!!!  
The thing that sparked this "meltdown" was when we had to get Millie a new car seat.... 
Seriously? A car seat??  I know, I'm out of control.

  We had to say "goodbye" to the green infant car seat and "hello" to the cow...


Looking back on the past 10 months of Millie's life, half of it was in that green car seat!  Since the day she was born, she has not stayed in one place for over 2 weeks!!  

She has been a travelin' girl...


"So long" green car seat.  We had lots of fun together...








Hopefully, "Mr. Cow Carseat" will be just as nice.

On the Move

For a while, she's been a "doorstop" as the pediatrician called her.  
We've also been told that "healthier" babies take longer to crawl... 
because they have more to tote around and all.  


Well now, our "healthy doorstop" is on the move.


Of course the things that get her crawling are food...


and the cute toy her Annie and Jaybo gave her.


She also really likes cords, remote controls, and computers.  Not good.

This same week, she also started pulling up and walking around things.
The doorstop was much easier to contain.  Where did my baby go?!?

Business in the Front, Party in the Back

These days we're business in the front...


and party in the back...


Okay, I will confess...  
Maybe these are completely forced curls.  
I so desperately want precious little curls, that I am constantly scrunching and poofing up her hair.


But Millie knows the truth and just sits back and laughs at me.



Good thing she goes with the flow...


and stands proud of her "faux curls."

Girl Talk

This weekend, Millie got to have lots of "girl talk" with Mimi Barrett...


They got to play patty-cake...


and tell each other exciting news...


they even got to practice their cheerleading "spirit fingers" moves...


They only picked at each other a few times.  Take one guess of who the instigator was...  


But some of the "girls only" talk was interrupted by these guys...




Even a Spiderman or two got in the way...



Good thing these boys are entertaining...




Guess it makes the conversation even more interesting!! =)

My Shades

One thing's for sure...


I am over the cold, and I'm ready for the summer.


Good thing these shades are totally my look.
So hip.
