To Smart for her own Good!

So I am constantly telling these cute stories to my mom and a few others that I regularly talk to on the phone, but I thought I would post this story because I was trying so hard to not crack up out loud, but in the end I couldn't hold it in.

Yesterday Shelby and I were eating lunch. We had some lunch meat, string cheese, grapes, tomatoes, crazines, and wheat thins. Shelby was super hungry and kept asking for more of everything. "More meat Peese!" "More grapes Peese" "More Crazines Peese mom!" So I was getting her seconds and even thirds of each item. (Side note...Shelby is VERY regular, if you know what I mean) Given this little fact I try not to give her too much fiber otherwise her 4 times a day will quickly turn into 6 times and then her bumm starts to hurt her. So when she proceeded to ask for more crazines I simply told her that 3 handfuls is enough and she could have something else if she were still hungry.

She then told me, "MOM!!! you need to go to time out right now, you are not listeninginging very good, not listeninginging good at all. Time out for 2 more times "(meaning 2 minutes) I was first shocked that she put two and two together and then was overwhelmed with laughter! How in the world do you tell a 2 year old that the rules just don't apply to you when you don't listen to them? Needless to say she didn't get more crazines but she got some pretzels in their place (some good carb, plug up food!) Everyday is hilarious around here with little stories like this one I just LOVE being a mom and being able to stay home with my girls so I don't miss any of their funniness!

This picture is like a year old, but I was looking through some and found another "funny moment" I think every post should have a picture if possible!

Pay it forward

I thought this would be something fun to do. I saw this on a lot of my friends blogs... and I have won a few awesome things (so I kinda have to do it now). They are all a little different. Some tell you what you will get others have left it a surprise. Some give things out to the first 5 comments others to the first 3 I am going to go in the middle with 4.

The first four people to respond to this post will get something made or bought by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make or buy!

2- What I create or get will be just for you.

3- It'll be done this year.

4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your your house before guest come to stay. I may draw or sew something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. (which you would totally love because everyone knows what an amazing cook I am.) Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange and/or awesome! The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 4 people who do the same on your blog. The first 4 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS gift from me!

Libby is 6 Months Old Today!

Today Libby is officially 6 months old. I can't believe how big she is getting and how fast she is becoming a little girl instead of my little baby. I decided that I would go ahead a do a photo shoot with her this afternoon so here are the pics that I took. (P.S. my Heidi did do some retouching for me :) Thanks again for making my pics awesome!)

This is a classic Libby drowl when she is on her tummy, she will scootch with her toes dug into the carpet and will get so excited that she is moving that she drowls, I think it is so cute!

I was trying to get her to look at me, but I guys our bookshelf was way more interesting!

Her cracking up at my faces

It is definately true...she is a thumb sucker. She will grab her favorite blanket (the strip one) and hold it with her thumb in place in order to fall asleep. She drops the blanket after she gets a good grip on her thumb.

Shelby thought that all of us girls needed to paint our toes and fingers the same horrific pink. That is why my fingernails look as if I am 14 years old. But Libby & Shelby's look so stinkin cute. Libby can't stop staring at her toes she thinks they are awesome!

Here are some facts about my little miracle baby!!!

Eyes: Bright Blue

Hair: Brown and growing back a little each day

Weight: I have no idea because I have been really bad at taking you to the doctor

Height: 26 1/2 inches long (you are so tall that you are wearing 6-12 month clothes; who would have guessed that she was a premie!)

Things she can do: roll over from your tummy to your back, grab any toy in sight, scoot forward with you toes, find her thumb anytime and any place, almost sit up, smile tons and giggle.

Dislikes: her swing, to be ignored, and breast feeding (she completely refused to do it any longer at 5 months; which is fine with me because I am not a huge fan either).

Nicknames: Libby Lou, munchin, and Miss Lou.

Personality: well you are FULL of personality and are probably the happiest baby I have EVER seen. You will smile to anyone who even looks at you and you are constantly giggling to the point of spit up coming out your nose (which only makes you laugh harder). You don't ever cry! You let out a few warning cries when you are ready to go to bed and then as soon as I lay you down you find your thumb and turn your head away from me as if to say goodbye and goodnight! You get so excited when we come to get you from your crib I love it because your body will shake uncontrolably because you can't contain how excited you are. When dad gets home from work you wait so patiently for him to get changed and say hello to Shelby and then when he comes to pick you up you probably wet your diaper because you are so excited. You love to read books, especially with Shelby and you will read for as long as someone will read just kicking your legs. You LOVE your bouncer and will sit and kick while we eat any meal.

Libby I am so grateful to be your mom and you have brought nothing but joy into my life. You are such a miracle and I know that you are a blessing to our family. You couldn't be happier for life and we couldn't be happier to to have you in our life. We love you and are so honored to be your parents!
