Random Dozen

1. What is your favorite fair/carnival food? I love love love a good funnel cake or caramel apple!

2. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Aren't we all? I think i have a few things in my life i could afford to let go.

3. What is your favorite gift to receive? Money of course cause i can do with it what needs to be done. Unless you consider hand made things from my kids. Love them!

4. When was the last time you tried something new? Lets see....I tried fish tacos for the first time in June and also at that same time i tried being away from my kids for more than 24 hours and found i hated it.

5. What is your favorite and least favorite book genre? I love love love a good series. I dont really care what it is as long as it has more than one book and a little mystery and excitement to it. I am not a big fan of westerns. Just never really got into them.

6.Silver or Gold? I use to like silver better but i have become a goldaholic since my wedding band is gold.

7. What makes you sigh? Long days and ignorance

8. If you didn't know how old you are, how old would you claim you are? I think i would go for exactly what i am. 24 is a good number and i like it just fine.

9. Would you break a law to save a loved one? To protect a loved one? Oh yes! Prime example is my kids. If someone ever hurt my kids (and i think most parents know what i mean without me going into details) i would most definitely be breaking some kind of law.

10. If you had to teach something, what would it be? Maybe acting or even religious history. The 2 both fascinate me.

11. You're having lunch with 3 people whom you respect and admire. They begin to criticize a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. What do you do? Speak my mind. If she is my friend and i feel differently then they do i have no reason not to speak my opinion of him/her.

12. Which of the 5 Love Languages is your prominent means of experiencing love? I am definitely a verbal and physical person. I tell my husband atleast 30 times a day how much i love him and appreciate him. Kissing, hugging, and cuddling is just a extra add on for us.

Just realized that for some reason the letter in the last post is not showing up in reader. So if you are only seeing a slide show then click on the post to read the whole thing.

In other new today is my blogoversary! 2 years and going. I dont post as often but there are no words that could express how happy life truly is anyways. Spending time with my loves and enjoying the days so that nothing escapes me is worth much more than counters and stats!

Have a blessed day everyone!

Sione' - 8 and 9 Months

Dear Weeble Wobble,

It has been a wild couple of months. You are growing so fast and we can hardle keep up with all your developing skills. You are a fast learner but still tend to do things on your own time and accord.

At 8 months you started standing and scooting along stuff and are now full on walking. You wobble around and look a little like a penguin when you walk because you dont bend your knees but it just makes it all the more adorable to watch. You always have a smile on your face when you are walking and hardly ever cry when you fall down. You are just amazing.

You also like to climb. You busted your lip last month trying to climb the entertainment center. It is kinda built in a step like patteren and i guess for you it is just an invitation. You also like to climb on your stroller when you aren't setting in it. You make mommy and daddy a nervous wreck but we wouldn't change it for the world.

You are getting so big now. I am not sure how tall you are but you are probably creeping up on the 25 pound mark. Your hair has came back full force and is full of beautiful curls. I love to just play with your curls and brush your hair. Mommy wishes she had hair like you.

You are teething again which isnt very fun. You tend to get very cranky; especially when you are hot. Which is a lot lately because we go to Phabian's football practice everyday and the heat has been ridiculous. We spend a lot of the time watching from the car, running out the gas with the AC on. Anything to make my baby happy.

You are now putting yourself to sleep, which makes me kind of sad. You hardly ever let us rock you anymore. We just lay you down in your crib and tuck you in and you snuggle withyour blanket and fall fast asleep. It  is great that you do this but at the same time i wonder where did my little baby go.

You now wave bye bye to everyone and also enjoy jabbering on the phone to anyone and everyone. No one can catch a syllable of what you say but it is cute none the less. We have our little baby conversations and you still reuse to say Mama unless you are crying and want something. However you are still 150% a Mama's Boy. You like others to hold you and you want all the attention to yourself but you always come back to me after a minute or 2.

You are eating so good. You eat more table/finger foods now. Your favorite is the little Gerber Pasta Pick-Ups Spinich and Cheese. I cut them in half and you just go to town. You also love any and all fresh fruit. However you are not big on meat at all. We tried some of the meat sticks and foods and you just nibble and then push them away. I guess it will take some time before you get into them. You are only taking 3 bottles a day now. 8 ounces each in the morning, afternoon, and night.

You sleep beautifully. You havent woken up in the middle of the night in a long long time (knock on wood). You go to bed around 8 or 9 and wake up around 6 or 7 depending on if it is a school day or not. You tend to take 3, one hour naps a day but some times cut it down to 2 long naps. Depends on what we have to do that day and what mood you are in.

We are so extremely luck to have you in our life. You are a joy to love and hold and make mommy and daddy do happy. Everyone who sees you loves you and exclaims how handsom you are. We couldnt be more proud of you.
