21 months!

So I feel that I have much more sanity now than my previous post!! HA! One of those days!

My little girl, who is MOSTLY a sweetheart is getting closer and closer to two! The things she's doing now and the stuff she understands and can say, just makes my heart sink to my stomach!! I started her Christmas List the other night, and it makes me look at her "play corner" here in the livingroom and think, "that stuff all looks like baby stuff compared to what's on her list this year!" Time really does go so fast!

So of course at 21 months we are just working on talking, listening, BEHAVING, and learning everything her little mind can soak in!! She might not be able to say a whole lot yet, but she sure can understand almost anything that comes out of our mouths!!

So I thought I'd just give ya some photos to show you what she's been up to the past month!

Below is a picture of Jaycee (and her friend Brayden beside her) at her first "pump it up" party. The inflatable party place!! You can tell she's been sweating! She LOVED it!!

I thought she looked so big sitting there at the table with all the other kids!! It killed me!

She LOVES to help me get ready in the mornings!!

I have also put her in "Kids Day Out" once a week. I had alot of guilt about this since she already goes to Daycare twice a week. But it's only for 3 hours, and it's such a popular place for preschool in our town that I was told if I wanted her to go to preschool there (which I do) then I needed to put her in Kids Day Out b/c those kids get first registration (then alot of times it's full!) So mommy did what mommy had to do! ;) She loves it though, and for quite some time all I've heard is what a wonderful place this is, so I didn't really have any concerns!! So far, it's worked out to perfection!!

This is her below, on her first day. :/ She has to take a backpack, and she always wants to carry it now!! I laughed b/c strangely enough I wasn't the only mommy in the parking lot getting pictures, and then we looked at each other and laughed!! :)

She's at such a fun age, but energetic age, that if playdates weren't apart of our lives, we would both probably lose it!! Below is Jaycee and her friend Noah (he still calls her "baby Jaycee"). They came over to play one morning. They play, and the mommies have coffee! It's perfect! I'm hosting another one tomorrow morning with 4-5 kids coming over. It's crazy, but makes for great naps! :)

I had to snap this picture below. This is how long her hair is getting!! :) I just love it! :)

Hopefully by my next post I can say that she is pottytrained!! (fingers crossed!) She's obsessed with the concept of it, but then refuses (85% of the time) to go. We have made some progress, but when I'm off in a few weeks for 2 full weeks, we're going hardcore! Forget the candies, the stickers, the "promised" toy to bribe her to pee in the potty. All she wants is some toilet paper to wipe herself! HAHA. The few times she does go, that's the only bribe she needs! (Wish I would have known that before "googling" potty training and stocking up on all my bribe supplies!!) HAHA.

I seriously could just eat her up!! :)
