7.25.09 Say Cheese!

I guess growing up right now makes all kids techno kids...but Libby thinks everything is a camera. I guess it doesn't help that we are always taking pictures of her. Here is a pic of her taking my iPhone and walking around like it is a camera. She runs around saying, "Say Cheese Momma" with it. It is cute but I can't convince her that everything is not a camera (even though 90% of what we own does have a camera built in =) ). How confusing!

Our little girl loves to drink...anything we are. Usually it is from a can or straw or a glass that isn't plastic. That isn't always great for her to do solo, although she does try. So how do you prevent this from happening? We still have no idea =)

7.25.09 Fun in the sun

This is proof we need a house with a back yard. This afternoon to let Libby play, we played in 'our back yard' which is our deck. Our deck...with no grass...nothing but wood. So we played with bubble wands and sidewalk chalk. Can't wait to move so we can get her a swing set and grass. Lots of grass!

Dance Party

While Daddy was partying in CA, Libby and I had a dance party in the living room!

Moving Update

I still can't believe it is real but we will be moving as of August 6th. Everyone here is sad but really excited and happy. We have had a lot of good and bad memories here. This is the first home Jim & I bought together a few months after we got married. It is also the first home Libby has ever known and where we brought her home. When I get anxious about moving, it isn't from the packing and the logistics of the move. I have learned from my parents how to make a move easy and simple. I am mostly worry about how Libby is going to react to her new home. She has only known this house and isn't good with change. The daycare confronted me yesterday saying Libby is acting unsure of herself this week. I am not sure if that is because of her things getting boxed up or because her Daddy went away for the first time this weekend since she has been born....but it definitely is making me even more anxious. The daycare suggested making her as much a part of the process as possible by letting her box up her toys and things in her room. I am not sure if you have ever tried to do something like that with an almost 2 year old, but the things you put in a box never stay in a box. The kiddo will always take them out. We'll still try it the night before we move with the remainder of her toys...which lets face it, is a lot of toys.

Everything seems to be coming together though. I just worry something will fall a part or Libby will have a bad transition. If you all have any advice on how to make this smoother, please let me know!

Salsa Baby!

Libby's new love is to dip things. She's invented combinations that don't make sense and make my stomach do flip-flops they are so gross, but she likes them. So when we took her to the local mexican restaurant, we figured she would try to dip her chips in the salsa. At first Libby didn't like it but by the end she was globbing it on and sucking the salsa off. Did you know that chips are really just ways to transport anything you want to dip into? Libby does! I love my salsa baby =)

Libby loves balloons. We knew this...but what we didn't know is Lamberts has GIANT balloons - the size of Libby. She, apparently, also loves to beat her Daddy in the head with a balloon. Jim didn't find it as fun =)


Aunt Erin and Zoe taught Libby how to dance!


It is amazing what games you will come up with when you are waiting to show the house and can't mess anything up!

Libby calling max

After a visit to Grandma and Grandpa Mirly's house where the dogs come when you clap your hands, Libby seems to think that works with our cat Max. It doesn't.

Libby loves Imagination Movers. She loves "Where is Warehouse Mouse" song even more. This is her mimicking the moves of the just can't hear the song in the background.

Water Baby

Libby saw a swimming pool today. She's been in her baby pool before on the deck but she loooves a swimming pool. Of course we weren't prepared for her to go *into* the pool...but that wasn't going to stop her!
