15 month Update!

Since I've been a serious slacker since heading back to work I figured I would do a 15 month update on the Peanut (that's right....15 months already!!)

Age: 15 months
Date of Appt.: June 14th, 2013
Weight: 24.9lbs
Height:  31.5 inches
Sleeping Patterns: Still sleeping through the night (about 7:30pm-6:30am) and you take one nap during the day which lasts anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on the day 

Eating Patterns: You still love food!  You do 3 meals a day plus at least one're daycare provider says that you always eat breakfast after being dropped off in the mornings....and that is AFTER mommy has already fed you.  I'm glad you enjoy eating and aren't too picky :)
Anything You'd Like to Add?: You now have 12 teeth with 4 more on the way.  Since heading back to work you enjoy going to daycare everyday and playing with your friends.  You have started to say A LOT of words for someone so little....Mommy and Daddy need to watch what we say because you repeat everything (last weekend you walked around saying "Oh Sh*t all weekend, after hearing Mommy say it...oops!).  I guess you take after Mommy with your speech.  You are also able to sign quite a few things and pick up on new signs fairly quickly.  I look forward to watching you continue to grow in the next few months!

Summer Bucket List

Ok...I admit it...I suck at keeping this thing up lately...but I've been enjoying my time and haven't been on the actual computer much lately.

Anyways...I'm a member of The Beautiful Mommy Club and every week there is a blog challenge.  I keep saying I will participate and have yet to do so....but this week I will :)

This week's topic is making a Summer bucket list!  So here is mine....

  • go swimming with Cole as often as possible
  • go to the African Lion Safari
  • have a date night at least once a month
  • spend some time on the patio
  • enjoy my backyard for once
  • have a cottage weekend with friends
  • go to a Jay's Game (even though they suck big time)
  • have lots of BBQs
  • maybe go to the zoo
It's not a huge list...but definitely one that I think is pretty achievable.  I'm looking forward to my week off in July and spending lots of time outside this Summer.

So I've been a little MIA lately, but things have been a bit busy since returning to work and my blog has kind of taken a back seat to life.  I returned back to work in mid-March, Cole had his First Birthday and DH has been working his second job almost since I returned to work so like I said...things have been busy! 

Everyone is doing well here!  I promise to try and update more frequently than I have been.  Hope you are all doing well :)

What A Day.... of those posts where I just need to let out a huge *sigh*

It was seriously just one of those days today. It was supposed to be a fun and happy day but it all just went downhill fast and didn't get any better as the day went on.  Oh well I guess...for every bad day there will be a better one...right!?

It just kinda sucks that the day ended crappy on my "Friday" of the week.

ANYWAYSSSS....I still have to do the Peanut's Birthday Recap and 12 month update....I can't believe I have a one year old!!  Promise my next post will be a happier one :)

1 week... all that is left of my mat. leave.  After next week I start the journey of being a working mom.  I'm excited and scared all at the same time!  Next week we have our trial runs at my cousin's house before I return to work...just to get C used to the idea of being with someone else. 

I'm kind of surprised that I'm not feeling as anxious as I thought I would.  It might be because...if I really truly admit it to myself...I kind of want to be back at work....OR....the anxiety attacks just haven't kicked in or the other!

I plan to do a little bit of back to work shopping next week while I have some alone time and C is at my cousin's house....get myself some pick me up back to work outfits :)

Not a long post...just a kind of had to get it out post...

...until next time!
