Happy Halloween!

A couple of weeks ago, we had a couples only Halloween Party. We have lots of fun neighbors and we have been getting together each month for a party. This month was the Howard's turn to plan and it was a blast! We had yummy food, played fun games, which included musical chairs outside in the freezing cold. Great party, great company!! Can't wait for next month!

Us: Tagg's idea, by the way. He was Hannah Montana if you couldn't guess and I was her friend Lola.

Here is Londyn - our little "stinker". Isn't she the cutest?

I seriously love this costume! Thanks again mom for finding it!! It's been a hit so far, can't wait to show her off some more tomorrow for Halloween. I'll have to try and get a pic of Londyn crawling with this. The bottom of her feet have paws, so "stinkin" cute!! :o)

Couldn't resist - sorry babe! ;o)

Londyn's ONE!

AAHHHH!!! My baby is ONE!!! Well, she actually has been one now for a few weeks. I've got a million things on my plate right now, but I'll skip the excuses and just get straight to the fun we've been up to, and of course some pics. :o) Londyn turned one on the 25th of September. We started her morning off by getting some pics done by Katie Wells. We had this cute cake done by Violet's Custom Cakes and I guess Londyn thought it was too cute to dig into it. She took the little swirly ribbon off the top and that was pretty much the only part of the cake she ate.

Then we had a birthday party for her at the park with family and some neighborhood friends. It was so much fun! One of her favorite things she got was from the Howard's and Barnes', they got her this cute musical activity cruiser. She LOVES music and loves to scoot around and walk behind it. Here are some things I want to remember:

*Has four bottom teeth

*Signs: baby, more/eat (she thinks these mean the same), please, all done

*Says: mama, mom, dada, hi, and hi da (in a really cute high pitch voice)

*Took three steps by herself and will stand alone for a quick second or two :o)

*Blows kisses, waves hi and bye

*Puts her hands on her ears and shakes her head, as we say "I'm not listening"

*Loves Little Einsteins and will pat and raise her hands to the air when they do, then she'll crawl around in circles as they "blast off" and she says, vvrrrooom. Pretty funny to watch!

*Loves dancing and music, she'll see Tagg's phone and get super excited and will grab it and hand it to us until we turn on the music for her.

*When she wants something, she holds her hand out and says, "Ehh" -hard to describe in words, but it's pretty funny to hear her repeat it over and over until you figure out what she wants. Usually it is her binky or baby or some stuffed animal she sees at the store.

*She likes to "try" and put her socks and shoes on. She has also been putting my flip flops on one foot.

Londyn is very much a girly, girl. She loves her babies and stuffed animals and will sign "baby" by putting her hands on her chest and rocking her body back and forth - seriously, so cute! She has also been giving BIG hugs which are to die for! As you can tell, we can't get enough of her. She is still very cuddly and I still rock her to sleep for naps and bedtime. This is a routine I love and look forward too. She, of course, still has to rub her hands on my arms. She just has to touch my skin, even in the car, I have to reach back to her so she can hold or rub my hand. And, since I wrote this a week ago, Londyn has now taken 10 steps on her own. She's a very determined little thing. When she falls, she gets right back up and tries again. Won't be too long before we're running after her!
