First time in the Ocean "Here it comes!"


We just got back from our trip to California. So fun! Sure loved the ocean!
And the sand!

Building a castle with my cousins.

More swimming at Uncle Tom and Aunt Em's pool.

So cool.

Family Photo

Trying to get a family photo.
This is Mom's favorite. (Check out my face).

The best we could get.

We're leaving on Saturday morning for a short but well needed vacation to California. So excited to visit with family and to see the ocean for the very first time! I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures when we get back. We'll be back late Tuesday! See you later!

A Little Light Reading

Mom walked in and found this: Me on my potty doing a little reading. (Seat up and all.) No I am not potty training yet...although this is my favorite seat in the house!
Deep into a good book.

Enough please. Do you mind?

Farrah Hair

Someone recently told Mom that I have "Farrah Fawcett hair". She'd never thought of it that way but it is sooo true! Not that we have a problem with Farrah Fawcett's hair but on a 21 month old, it is a little much. I have so much hair (I know, not a bad problem to have) but I won't let Mom put anything in it to keep it back (atleast for more than five minutes). Don't try to come near me with scissors either or I'll scream and flail around! (Has Mom mentioned I'm strong willed?) So unless we come up with another option, I guess I will continue to have Farrah Fawcett hair. This is me straight out of bed in the morning!

I've got some news that I'm so excited to share. Maybe you can figure it out by my shirt in this picture or the one on the top of the blog.
Yep, you guessed it! I'm a big sister in training. (I'm working on being a little gentler with my own baby). Look below at the ultrasound pics. You may just find out if I'm going to have a sister or brother!

Little Baby ?????

Doing a head stand...always moving!
Profile and spine.

Strong heartbeat.

Little tiny foot. So that's what I've already been feeling!

Drumroll please.....It's a girl! Don't ask me how they know from this picture but they were 100% sure. Tessa's going to have a little sis!

Where have we been?

Swimming, swimming, and more swimming! Mom got a job helping a friend with her pool business. So we've been checking out different pools making sure they are doing their job right! Good thing I love to swim!
My friends Tate and Averi have been able to come along and swim too. Love them!

Gotta love cupcakes after a hard day at the pool!

So Silly

Little Lefty

Nobody has told us for sure but I do everything with my left hand.
Sure do love to color!

Happy 4th of July

  1. We were waiting to see if we'd get to go see fire works but it rained all evening so we decided to stay home. Oh well. Hope everyone had a happy fourth of July!

Sky Diving

While Mimi and Pop Pop were visiting last week, Daddy and Pop Pop decided to go sky diving (well sort was a simulation indoors) for Pop Pop's birthday. Here I am helping them get ready Posing with Dad before taking flight

There goes Daddy!

And Pop Pop! Hope you had a fun birthday!

Terrible Twos?

Needing a little explanation???

So lately, Mom has been thinking (more like hoping) I have been going through a stubborn phase. I like to test EVERYTHING. This is especially bad with Mom. I think it is so funny when she tells me no, to do that exact thing again and again...with a huge smile on my face. Mom is hoping this is me going through my terrible twos early because she's not sure she can take much worse. The pictures above show one example. Anytime Mom tries to change my diaper I take off running...naked. This always seems to happen when we are trying to get out the door which seems to make Mom that much more frustrated. The more frustrated the better! I just run and laugh. This particular time Mom decided to take some pictures. She said something about blackmail later when I'm older...whatever that means. I still had a great time doing it!
PS--- If anyone has some words of encouragment for Mom, she could really use them. Although I am very cute, I think I may be wearing her out a little!
