AHEM: We have a walker!

So my daughter, who will be 13 months old next week was just cruising along last night along the furniture which she has been doing for about 2 months now, when she stepped away from the chair and took about 4 steps. And it's all been downhill from there. Adam and I of course kept making her walk between us. Until she realized that when you let her go she can walk AWAY from you, all the way across the room. So basically Wednesday she couldn't walk and Thursday she could. Crazy how that works.

We did take video of it. And I'll upload that on Monday for the whole world to see but it takes forever and a day to do it at home.

So what's up with me lately?

Man, Have I ever been slacking in the blogging section of my life. Seems I have a lot going on but just never really feel much like writing about it, and if I do feel like writing I feel uninspired and I certainly don't want to bore my readers with boring stories about how lily won't sleep past 6:30 anymore, which wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't super crab when she woke up. But for some reason I just feel like that's not something people want to read about.

Lately I have been feeling like certain areas of my life I am growing away from and others closer to. I don't really know how to explain that other than maybe we've just been so busy that I haven't really just sat down to type out what's going on. It seems every weekend that comes has plans in it already. I remember why I don't really mind winter so much. You get to stay home and relax and watch movies instead of run over all over creation. But really why does it bother me so much to have so many plans? Cause I am a hermit that's why. I plan this stuff cause I like to do it all but then complain about not having time to do anything.

I'm sporting a pretty wicked sunburn from the Zoo trip on Saturday, it has moved past the burn stage and is now in the itchy stage. And let me just say I am SO glad I actually put sunblock on most of the areas otherwise I would surely throw myself off a cliff cause I couldn't take the itching, even with the aloe gel it's so itchy.

Let's see what else is going on? Friday Lily is going over to Adam's parents house for the morning and then I have some photography stuff at 3 and then hopefully my kid and their kid can swim, provided it doesn't rain on us all. Saturday Lily and I have a play date at 10-12 and then I am meeting another friend and her baby at 1 at albertville to do some shopping. Should be fun. Sunday is fathers day and I can't state what I have planned since Adam reads this (ok, so there is nothing planned yet.)

That's my excitement. I'll get better, these things go in phases for me for some reason so I'll just write when I feel like it I guess.

Anything great I should write about? World peace? Learning to fly a kite? Anything?

Playdates with the Giraffes....

Holding hands!

I promise she is trying to give him a kiss, though really who cares, it's cute.

Yes they are discussing world domination.

Thanks for the zoo trip guys, we had fun!
Disclaimer: There are no actual picture of giraffes in this post as I didn't take any.

Lily's first haircut.

So I'm not normally a nakie baby picture kinda girl, But she was sporting some diapie rash so we let her wander around nakie for a while to let things *cough* air out, so to speak. So a glimpse of my kid watching tv in the buff.

This picture you can see her hair cut. It was just too long in the front and was CONSTANTLY in her eyes and the bows just couldn't contain it anymore. Incidentally this is what she does when she's tired.

The Perfect Curl.

See my little mean....girl. Not sure I'm crazy about the way it got cut but at least I brought her in and didn't try to do it myself. I can only imagine how great it would look then. It's just hair. It'll grow back....RIGHT?

Short weekend...

Man I am not used to having only a two day weekend anymore (I Know, Poor Miranda) But the 2 days I did have just FLEW by. Saturday we went to my parents to help out down in their new place, that took pretty much the whole day. Sunday Adam took a shower, I cleaned out lily's pool and refilled it and set it up in the sun so the water could warm up! When she went down for her nap I got a lot done, lots of cleaning done which was nice. Then Lily played a bit and had lunch, about 2 or so I took her out so she could play in the pool since it seemed it was warm enough for her! She had a blast (pictures to be posted tomorrow)! Then we grilled dinner and just relaxed for the night. A good weekend overall just far too short.
