It won't be like this for long....

While I was sitting watching Tommi play in the bathtub and "It Won't Be Like This For Long" came made me so sad. I want her to grow up but then again I don't. She is so much fun and I don't want my baby to be a big girl...ever! I want her to be a sweet cuddly little girl forever!

I love being her mom more than anything in the world! She is so smart and eager to learn. I am so proud of her!

So I know I can't stop her from growing up...but sure wish I could slow it down!


So for the past month when I ask Tommi a question she says "oh!" and nods her head, to answer "yes". Well I understood but wanted her to learn "oh" does not mean yes even if you nod your head. So TJ and I have been working with her and when she says "oh" we just tell her "yes" and she will say "yes".

It is really cute now b/c she has got the hang of saying "yes" now but still reverts back to "oh" but then corrects herself with out me saying anything. She gets super proud of herself and it is so cute!

She is just learning so fast!! I love it!!!

Extra prayer needed...

So tonight I put Tommi down like normal...she lays down I hold her hand and pray with her, turn on her heartbeat bear, kiss her and tell her I love her, then tell her "I will see you in the morning, we are gonna have a good day tomorrow!" as I walk out and shut the door.

Well we did all that...I walked out, did some stuff around the house then sat down and got on the computer. Well after like 30/45 min she started crying. Not like she is fussing herself back to sleep but like she was upset. So TJ went in and picked her up, she kept crying, and called for me.

He brought her out to me and I said "What is wrong? Do you want mommy to go rock you?" She said "Oh!" (which means yes) and nodded. I thought it was a bit odd b/c I have not rocked her before bed in many months. Anyway...I took her to her room rocked her some and hummed to her like I did when she was little. Then I laid my hand on her back and prayed for her. After I said Amen, she sat up. I asked her if she wanted to get back in her crib and she nodded. I put her back in her crib kissed her and walked out. I have not heard a peep in 2 hours.

Seriously thought this was the coolest thing...she must have just needed some extra prayer for the night!

18 month appt

Tommi had her 18 month appt today. The dr was of course very happy to see where Tommi is developmentally. She was so good letting the dr check her out and she kept pointing to me and saying "momma" It was a great appt! The only hard part was her getting 2 shots MMR and chicken pox. I kept my forehead on hers and just kept kissing her b/c I hate seeing them give her the shots and seeing her face while they do it. She was ok with the first one but the 2nd one she was very upset about. When we got to the car she kept pointing to her leg saying "boo boo". Too sweet! But all is forgotten now! :) We don't have to go back till 2 years old!

Tommi is 22 lbs 15 ozes (upper 25%) and 32 1/4 inches tall (upper 50%) My string bean!

18 months

18 months? That is a big milestone. According to my mom this is when I threw myself out of my crib and had to move to a big girl bed. I pray this does not happen for a while with her. She is too adventurous and would find trouble at night. is great! Tommi is growing up way too fast but it is alot of fun. Well except the tantrums which have just started...but hopefully it is a short phase. I kinda feel bad how frustrated she gets.

Her vocabulary is getting quite large. She can have a full blown conversation with me, except I understand about 1 of every 20 words. Haha She is very polite and says please and thank you very clearly.

She loves calling all red round objects "Apple", it is clear as day too! She also has picked up on "good girl" and "nice" which are super cute.

I can tell her to do about anything and she understands. It amazes me how smart she really is!

She has 13 teeth and SO close to getting another 3.

Tommi is a big fan of "melmo" right now. And I don't mind him. She gets to watch him in the morning for the 20 min "Elmo's World" comes on Sesame Street...if we are home or she gets up at the right time. She really likes him. I am NOT a fan of "characters" but I can handle Elmo...maybe b/c we do not have any talking Elmo's, well her chair talks but I keep it turned off. Mean mommy!

Yet again....

she melted my heart.

While eating lunch today Tommi had yogurt with pieces of strawberry in it. So I was helping her with her spoon to get a piece on her spoon. She looked at me and said in the sweetest voice ever "Thank you, momma! Thank you, momma!" She was so sincere!

She is just the sweetest thing ever! I wish others were here to hear her say it b/c it was perfect! My persistence on her saying thank you paid off more than I could imagine. She even says it when I don't expect her to!

Wow I love her!!!!

Too smart

Tommi is getting to be too smart. She is actually able to use her words at the proper time. As much as I'm so proud of her I'm realizing I have to watch what I say!

All of these stories happen today....

Tommi was opening the cabinet below our TV and I told her "No" and held it closed and told her "Closed". She looked at me pushed me back and said "BACK!" I glared at her like I was upset with her. She leaned in and kissed me! Seriously how am I supposed to get upset. I just started cracking up!

When feeding her lunch one of the cats snuck up and swatted my hand. I yelled "OUCH!!" and grabbed my hand. Tommi processed to grab her hand and say 'Ouch' the rest of the day!

I put a band-aid on my ankle and she walked up kissed it and said "boo-boo" then wanted a band-aid in the exact same spot. So we were twins today! Too sweet!

I am with her all the time and even though I enjoy my little breaks at nap time and when daddy gets home I do not like to be away from her...she is just too much fun!!!

I can't believe my babygirl will be 18 months old next Tuesday! Time flies!
