Happy Memorial Day!

We took Lizzy to the park for a wagon ride and she had lots of fun. She's our little memorial day baby. Last year she was born on memorial day. The park just created a veteran's memorial that we got to visit while we were there.

On another note, you may notice some red marks on the more recent photos of Lizzy. A couple days ago she woke up with several red bumps on her face, hands, and leg....we thought it could be chicken pox or some sort of allergy but after a couple days nothing else has popped up so we think it is just ant or mosquito bites. We will try taking Lizzy to the doctor this week to check this and her 12 month vaccinations.

What we're up to...

This is another busy week for us with Mike working the shuttle mission at night both of us are away nights and Lizzy is home with grandma. Lizzy's great aunt is in town also helping care for her at night. We are grateful for the help because working nights can be difficult. Lizzy is getting her 2nd set of top teeth coming in and she has had a runny nose but overall she is doing well. She was waking up early for a while but she is back to normal now and letting us get some sleep.

We are also busy with planning Lizzy's birthday party this Saturday. Everything is pretty much ready to go we just have some last minute shopping, picking up the cake and food then just setting up and time to party.

On another note, last year I was almost 9 pregnant and awaiting the arrival of my baby. I was getting everything ready for baby to come home and now I am getting ready for my baby's 1st birthday party. Time really does fly....flipping through Lizzy's scrapbook and seeing her as a newborn, and her tiny tiny footprints I just want to go back and cuddle her as a newborn but today at 11 months is also so nice. She's so interactive and playful it's just a reminder that we have to make every moment count because it will fly by.

PS. Thank you aunt Vivian and anyone else who posted comments. I just read them all and it was very fun and uplifting to go back to older posts and read those comments. Thank you!

Active baby girl

Wow Lizzy has become so active she is practically running everywhere! We went for sno cones and she was running all over the place there. I let her taste my sno cone and she loved it, she wanted more and more but we don't want to give Lizzy too much sugar. Lizzy and momma both love sno cones.

Lunch time!

Grilled cheese and water to drink for lunch today in her big girl booster seat. I turned around and the grilled cheese was gone...either Lizzy ate it real fast or Bella had the grilled cheese.

Mother's Day

My first mother's day and birthday were good although Lizzy and I are sick with a cold. For my birthday we went to Dave and Buster's and for Mother's day the whole family went to Bucca di Beppo. I'm proud to be Lizzy's momma.

Strawberry Picking

Uncle Christian and I took Lizzy strawberry picking today and it was lots of fun. Lizzy has a good time walking around and picking the occasional strawberry. It's nice that she can walk now and enjoy things like this now.
