17 Months! Woot! [Dec. 2]

Hey, hey guys! Mommy was actually on the ball for this birthday and I got my picture taken on my actual 17 month birthday! Woot! Way to go, MOM! :) I, however, am late posting... One day we will synchronize like those swimmers and get it together. I got over my sickness with flair at the beginning of this month - went back to Dr. Irons and she said I was gold. Well I had a super great month after getting over that sickness - a holiday, some gardening (in my house!), visiting my wonderful family, going to ride reindeer, and being silly. That's what I do best - silly. Tonight I entertained Mommy and Daddy by spinning circles all around the living room while laughing my head off and talking super fast. Ok, to catch you up on my month...

I didn't do a whole bunch at the beginning of the month because I was still getting over the blasted croup. There was this one day that I begged for bows. Mommy obliged, I usually can get her to do what I want fairly easily. Anyway, she gave them to me and I kept putting them in my hair. I love my bows - like for real. I won't go anywhere without at least on win my head. I also love Moma's toboggan. I am a rockstar in it and pretty darn cute.

A few days later, Daddy grew a tree in our living room! It was so awesome. I love that tree so much! It has places for me to put my girls, lights, BALLS, a spot to lay under. I really do love that tree so much - me and Cal play in it all the time. He gets to climb it! I love yelling at him, "No, no Callie!!". He doesn't listen to me, so Daddy yells at him and he tucks tail and runs. When I run over to Mommy or Daddy and say "Up ball" they pick me up and let me touch the balls on the tippy top of the tree. I love when they let me see the pretty balls. The bottom half of the tree is mine, I put my special ornaments there. I have a lion, giraffe, elephant, girl, cat, rabbit, owl, a couple of balls, and a bell. I think that maybe Mommy put that bell there so she'd know if I was playing in the tree... Very sneaky if that's what she did.

Daddy and Mommy took me to the mall a few times to ride the reindeer and see the pretty lights and balls. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got to ride the reindeer with Dada and then again, with Moma. I loved it so much that when it was over I was so upset. I may, or may not, have pitched a huge fit... I digress. If you know me at all then you know I love a ball; so the giant tree by the reindeer was overwhelming - soooooo many bright and colorful balls. We are just starting the Advent season and I love it because Mom and Dad keep reading to me about Baby Jesus. They're telling me that Christmas is the celebration of His birth. I point Him out in my Bibles and in the Nativity at home and at Dabo and MiTessa's house. I pick Him up and rock Him and kiss Him. I'm really starting to love this Jesus. Me and Mommy talk to Him every night before she puts me down for night-night. Daddy and Mommy tell me that when I'm older we can have better discussions about Who He is, for now though I'll have to stick with reading about Him. And that is just fine with me because I adore the Book He is in.


Of course I got to stay with the best g-parents ever - they sure do love me a whole bunch. And hey, aren't they cute?! I love Babo and MiTessa so much. I get to see Kik-i, Mo-Mo, Ma-Ma, and Skeeter when I go there too. They are so fun! Skeeter made me Mickey Mouse pancakes one morning! I get to watch a ton of football when I go to their house too. Football is my favorite sport.

At the end of the month we had Thanksgiving. I got to go to Montgomery and see Uncle Wade, Aunt Stacy, Mr. Cloud (Aunt Stacy's daddy), Aunt Wendy, and Lauraline! MiTessa, Nana, Mo-Mo, Macey, Ma-Ma, and Steven came down and I got to see them for a few minutes before they went shopping. 

I've had a lot to talk about for this month. Some of my favorites are still balls, bows, babies, books, and my girls (Little People). I love talking, squealing, laughing. I love eggs with dip, milk, water, macaroni, chicken, beef, fruit, potatoes, yogurt, grits, pancakes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, smoothies, Mommy's drink (whatever she is drinking, I just have to have it. Her water is 10 times better than mine.). I love taking a bath. I love playing outside. I love helping Mommy clean and fold clothes. I have an extended vocabulary - Mommy can't even keep up with how many english words I'm saying. I do use my other languages a lot just to confuse Mommy and Daddy. I love my Mommy and Daddy so much. I love that they get to spend time with me, I love that they have jobs where their bosses understand that family time is important. I love Calvin. I love my rocking horse. I'll leave you with a few pictures! See you next month - It'll be a new year!
