Sweet 16

Samantha turned 16 months old today!! Yeah, I can't believe it either.

I am so in love with this beautiful little thing. She is our everything.

And she's into EVERYTHING! She is walking everywhere. It's pretty stinking cute.

At her last appointment a few weeks ago she weighed in at 18lbs 3oz and was 28 inches long. Size 3 diapers, size 3 shoes, mostly 12 month shorts/pants/skirts and 18 month tops.

Her hair is slowly coming in. Unfortunately she still isn't a fan of headbands and her hair is still too thin for a clip.

She's got a mouthful of teeth!! Those molars are showin' up to the party...and it's not so fun! Her sleep has been disrupted some. She still does about half the night in her crib and the rest with us. Don't be judgey :) She takes a good morning nap but afternoon naps don't always happen.

She's still on soy milk, loves fruit and greek yogurt! Still hates meat. We also watch Barney and Sesame Street quite a bit! She LOVES doggies! Originally when you would ask her what the doggie says she would say "Woof woof." But somehow along the way ( I think because I did it once) when you ask her now what a doggie says she sticks out her tongue and pants (sp?)  like a dog does!! LOL

My girl loves being outside! She loves swings and swimming! We've been swimming everyday it seems! She loves to dance and clap and shout hooray. Especially during the intro song to Barney! She really likes when I dance with her to it :) She blows lots of kisses and it's freakin' adorable!!

We went to Boston a few weeks ago for her final checkup on her hemangioma surgery. The doc said it looks great and that we don't have to go back! The scar itself looks great! He said in the future she can come back and have the scar made smaller or if we want to bring her back in a few years, but we won't do that. If in the future SHE wants to have that done, then we will, but we will not put her through surgery again.

Life is pretty sweet with our Peanut Princess. She is generally a very happy and smiley girl. Although, we still battle some stranger anxiety from time to time! But we are hoping that passes as she gets older.

We are loving Summertime with our baby girl!

The 4th and Things!

Little Diva

My girl LOVES vanilla Greek yogurt

It has been a busy week/weekend here! Filled with celebrating America's birthday, pool fun, BBQ's, my Mom's birthday and a very special Baptism on Sunday!! After what seemed like WEEKS of rain, we are finally getting some sunny and very HOT days. Samantha is great!! So much is new with her that I will save it for her 16 month birthday post next week.

She had a few 4th of July outfits so I had to spread them out over the last few days :)

Her Poppy (my FIL) throwing her in the air! She loves it!

I made Red, White and Blueberry pancakes for breakfast on the 4th
