Splish Splash

I'm behind. 
Can a motha ever catch up?
No, I didn't think so either.

Well, time is dwindling down and the next few weeks are going to be a blur.
We have a trip to Potosi, Rk's trip to Baltimore, the BDAY PARTAY, and our long awaited vacation! After vaca, we head to Branson for more family fun with my fam. Whew! It'll be a busy month! Needless to say, I have a lot on my mind. Stuff to remember, stuff to pack, food for party, decor for party, ending the school year, blah blah blah. As for Miss Thang, she popped through 2 teefers over the weekend and we are feeling the pain. Poor thing, she isn't sleeping the best and I know it is hurting her. She is such a happy little thing though! She just pushes right through it!
Gammy got her a new towel and she loves it!

11 Months

11 Months. 
I know.
She is one hot little mess, too. Lexi is such a HAPPY little baby big girl! I think These pictures pretty much speak for themselves!

We had an ear infection last/this week. We are working on getting over that. Good 'ole bubble gum meds. Thank goodness for those! And Aunt Emily! {Shout out, Em, you're a lifesaver!!} 

At the doctor she weighed 27 lbs. Growin' girl! 
LB is wearing size 24 months - 2T! Size 4-5 shoe. 

She is such a little blessing. I know I say that a lot, but for those of you who know her, I don't think you would probably argue with me. :)

We  Robert is  in vaca planning mode. Big time.
Destin it it is just which condo! 

I can't wait. I'm actually counting the days. End of school...beginning of summer. Y.E.S.

Well, that's pretty much it for now. 
One more month and our princess will be 1. 
Sad, sad, day.

Gardening & Party Planning

Two things I love. 
We planted a flower bed to spice it up around our yard for the birthday party! Here are a couple of pics of some flowers that we planted!

Aren't they pretty? I'm sure loving them!

I have also been doing a little "party planning"! 
I can't wait for Lexi's birthday party! I made a couple of signs to sit around! Here is how I made them...

First, I started by painting a board black. I just used acrylic paint because it is what I had.

Then I cut the vinyl I wanted to put on....and placed it on the board...

I then covered the entire board with Modge Podge. This stuff can be used for SO many things!

Let it dry and you're done! 
More projects are in the works :)

Look What We Can Do!

Easter Weekend!

Our Easter weekend was WONDERFUL!
Lexi woke up to see what the Easter Bunny brought was a Minnie Mouse lawn chair, Chipwrecked movie, some Teddy Grahams, and an Easter Book! 
She also received 5 other Easter presents! What a spoiled little girl!

Just waking up {not really awake at all actually}

She was so sleepy after playing with her new things that she and daddy took another nap!

Floppy hat, napping, and Baby Monitor App!

Don't you just want to kiss that little face!
I sure do.

These are both from my phone...but thought they were cute!
The left one is when we went for a walk one evening. We have been going every night because the weather is beautiful. You can't help but be outside!
The one on the right is her position for her nap on Saturday in her crib. I went to check on her and it cracked me up! I guess she is comfortable!

Speaking of napping...
I found this cool new app you can use in place of a baby monitor if you don't want to carry the little speaker/screen thing around!
All you do is sit your iphone in the baby's room and turn it on. When it detects a sound, it sends a call to a number of your choice and allows you to hear what is going on! Brilliant!
You can also set it up where you can use Facetime and SEE what your baby is doing.
There IS an app for everything.

Well, the summer is fast approaching and I cannot be more ready! Bring on the summer! Our flowerbed is almost finished! I'll post pics soon! Robert did a great job on it!
