17 Months

Oh hai! Yes Gigi turned 17 months on the 21st and it's already the 28th and I haven't blogged about it yet! I'll be totally honest with y'all. I'm slacking, and it will probably be this way for a while. Maybe indefinitely. I've taken on a lot on my plate, and while I am super duper thrilled with all the fabulous happenings in my life, blogging here has taken a bit of a backseat. I do want to check in and keep track of all of my girl's milestones and whatnot, but for most day to day things, I'll probably be skimping out on them. I do appreciate all my loyal followers and hope that you don't all continue to drop like flies (I'm looking at you, #147!), but if you do, I get it. If you want to keep up with all the rest of what I'm up to, please go ahead and follow my business and :-)

Whew! Now that we got all that out of the way, let's get right back to G's 17 month old-edness. She is so spunky and full of life... and into eeeeeverything. She must be watched like a hawk because if you don't pay attention, you end up with oatmeal all over the family room or all of your bubble bath poured into the tub. But this stage is totally fun, as she keeps developing her little preferences (still daddy!). She's saying about 15 or so words, some all the time and some not too consistently. I think her language development may be a little slower because she is learning 2 languages at once. She dances all the time. She tries to hop. She is in LOVE with Santa. She prefers to feed herself with her fork or spoon. She loves cheese and bread (mama's girl here!) and is starting to become pickier with what she will eat (total mama's girl here unfortunately!). I just adore her so much and we are having so much fun with all the craziness she brings to this house (she loves to yell at us like a dictator if she sees fit). I believe it was rainy on the 21st so I snapped these on our bed as we lazed around enjoying a rousing episode of Sesame Street. :-)

Told ya she's spunky :-)

Halloween 2011

Gabriella had a TOTAL blast on Halloween this year. We went trick or treating more out of formality, and I really didn't expect her to be that into it. Boy, was I wrong. She was grinning from ear to ear watching all the other kids in costumes and grabbing candy to add to her little pail. We made it to about a dozen houses before she started getting sluggish so we headed home to put her to bed (but not before examining our loot first!). She was the little lamb so we went as farmers :-)

That little smudge on her chin is her first taste of chocolate. She spit it right out. lol
