Uh oh!

While getting Tommi dressed for church I decided to just let her wear the clothes she had on all day b/c she had not gotten it dirty. So her outfit consisted of a cotton light blue/pink/purple/red striped summer dress and hot pink leggings. Super cute but sporty. So not typical church gear but it worked.

So I got her new tennis shoes out and got ready to put her shoes on and she said "no. NO! NO! NO!" Which shaking her head and finger at me. She turned around and grabbed the silver sparkly shoes she had worn the night before and handed them to me. I told her they didn't match her outfit and picked up her tennis shoes. She walked over and grabbed her tennis shoes from me and threw them and said "No!". Then proceeded to point to her sparkly shoes.

So figuring I had lost this battle I put her sparkly shoes on her. She got off my lap and started dancing and tapping her feet! I was ROLLING laughing! She of course ate this up and did some more of her little "jig".

This is the first time she has totally told me what she wanted to wear and boy am I in trouble...the sparkly shoes are on the brink of not fitting! :( Eeek!

So Tommi is officially done nursing. Well it was about a week ago but I just thought about documenting it.

We started off really rough but made is almost 17 months!!! Which is amazing if you knew all we went through!

I am VERY happy with being able to go that long. I planned for 18 months but I let Tommi lead the way and she weaned herself very nicely. So it was a natural thing and I'm not as sad as I thought I would be. Of course I miss our time together but she still likes to cuddle alot and I am still her comfort so that helps alot!

I like that I do not have to think about my clothing being "accessible". Makes it a bit easier!

17 months...

So the baby girl is officially 17 months...and life as a mom is still amazing!

Tommi is SO full of life! She has an amazing vocabulary...and will try to say almost anything word I say. She is definitely getting an attitude and letting me know she has an opinion. But she is also the most lovable child ever. She still enjoys cuddling up with me alot! So an amazing balance of perfect!!! :)

She LOVES books right now. Sometimes she wants me to read them sometimes she will sit and "read" them/look through them all by herself. She LOVES anything that has a cat or dog in it.

The apple does not fall far from the tree with her...she LOVES animals! Especially the ones she knows the name or sound to. Today she saw one of her great granddads cows and she stood at the door mooing. Since we have never been able to teach her what a dog says she now pants when we ask her what a dog does it is seriously so sweet!

Just a funny fact but she has become obsessed with belly buttons, saying it, looking for other peoples, and showing off her own! It is too sweet and cute!

OK so she is not perfect and is VERY frustrating at times. Spankings have been introduced and I hate being "that mom"! Esp b/c she misbehaves more in public than anywhere else...of course!

Tears...of joy?

So I was just reading through some of my blog and I started to cry. Not b/c I'm all but I guess the past 2 years have been the best ever!

It has been the most amazing thing ever...from the start with finding out I was actually going to assist the Lord in a discovering the world all over again with the sweetest little girl ever!

I am SO thankful for the Lord allowing me to be Tommi's mommy! I feel like I can't thank him enough! Being a mom is the best!!!

A post just isn't as much fun with out pictures....oh how times have changed!!!
