I decided to make a list of words that Josey says on a regular basis. I'm sure there are more that I cannot think of right now.

Ni Ni
thank you
no way
Where's ------?
Where'd it go?
What's that?

She's almost 20 months now and she says new things everyday. Time seems to go so fast. She's taking swimming lessons and gymnastics this summer and I know she'll love them both. I know we'll both get spoiled to me being home every day this summer and it'll be super hard to go back to work in the fall.

I know these pictures are horribly late. These were stolen from Becca's blog. They are from the Annual Boatcallie Easter Egg Hunt. It was a blast! Josey and me. She was not wanting me to hold her. She wanted to get down and play.

Potty training

I know I haven't blogged in forever. I am going to skip right over Christmas and Valentines and go right on to potty training.

I started working with Josey on her potty training on Sunday. She is doing so well so far and I am so proud of her! My little baby is growing up so fast.

She says lots and lots of words now. She says Mama, Wachel (Racheal, our baby sitter), cow, gog (for dog), uh-oh, NO!, nose, bye-bye, and several other things that I can't seem to remember right now. She learns new things every day and is so quick to pick up on them.

Josey is quite the little climber. She climbs on everything! Examples include- the kitchen table, the kitchen counter, any kind of shelf, and the fireplace. It makes me a nervous wreck sometimes.

Josey loves to be outside. She would rather be running around the yard and playing with the dogs than doing anything else. I would say for sure that there is no chance of her being a girly girl, but she sure does love playing in my makeup and jewelry.

I promise I'll post more pictures soon.

Happy Holidays!

I have been such an awful blogger here lately. This is due in part to me getting my Iphone so I have gotten very addicted to facebook. Josey is doing great and so am I. She walks everywhere now and is on the verge of running. Actually, she tries to run all the time, but mostly she falls down a lot. She has become quite the little climber. It's a little like living with a spider monkey. She can get up in the kitchen table chairs all by herself now. Once she is sitting in one, she stands up and then dances and claps for her great achievement. She also likes to stand on her car and climb up on the couch. Today is my last day of school for 2 whole weeks! I am so ready for the break and I know Josey will enjoy having her mommy home all day every day. I've got lots planned for us, including visiting some old college friends that I haven't seen in a long time. Here are a few pictures. None are great, mainly because she's too fast to catch on camera. Have a great Christmas, everyone!

It's been quite a while since I blogged. I haven't been taking too many pics of Josey here lately because she's so fast! She moves so quick that it's really hard to get a good one these days. I'll work on it this weekend. She is just about ready to start walking without holding on to things. I have to watch her so closely right now because she is into everything. This is Homecoming Week at my school and it has been really crazy. The kids are super wound up because of that and the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. The boys and the girls play Saturday night and they will announce the Homecoming Court. Josey and I are going to go for a while and watch. I got an Iphone last weekend and it is so awesome. I can get on my facebook now whenever I want and I love it. I totally would recommend one to anyone that wants a smartphone. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I am ready for the holiday break. After that, it's only 3 weeks until Christmas break starts. I know Josey is going to have a blast this year with all of the wrapping paper and boxes. I haven't decided what I am getting her yet for Christmas. If anybody has any ideas on what is good for a 1 year old, then let me know.

weaning sucks

Weaning is hard! I have stopped nursing Josey during the day. She now only nurses at night and first thing in the morning. This has been hard for us both. She is mad about not getting to nurse during the day anymore. I, of course, feel horrible for making her be upset. Being a mom is certainly not easy.

I haven't been able to post in a while because I couldn't get to my blog. But now I'm back! Josey and I are doing well. She is very steady standing on her feet now without holding onto anything. She has yet to take her first steps without holding onto something or me, but I am expecting it any day now. Things have been a little crazy at school this week with 6 weeks test and preparation for the Fall Festival. It was last night and Josey and I went. There were tons of people there and we had a good time. Some of my students were feeding Josey pieces of cupcake and a hershey bar so she loved it. They thought it was hilarious that she would chew and then open her mouth and dive at them like a baby bird to get food. Pretty funny. I'll post pics of her in her costume next week. Here is one that was taken last night at the Fall Festival. Mom scanned it in, so that's why there is so much white space and it's not really clear.

Josey's 1st birthday party and 1 year checkup

Here are the pics from Josey's birthday party. A great time was had by all. The leggings had to be added to her outfit at the last minute because of the weather being kind of cold. I love the one of me, Josey, and Mabel (the dog).
Josey had her 1 year checkup yesterday. She is still in the 95th percentile in weight, the 97th in height, and off the charts with her head size. He said that she is doing great. She has recently decided that she is grown, so she has quit eating baby food. She only wants to eat whatever I am having. This may sound stupid, but I am kind of at a loss on what to feed her. I want her to eat healthy and I'll admit that I don't really eat that healthy. I guess I'll have to do better. Hope y'all enjoy the pics of my little boog.

A party

Nathan's family had their party for Josey's birthday this past weekend. I stayed the whole time (hey, I'm not missing my kid's party, just because her dad and I are splitting up) and everyone had a really good time. The party was princess themed, just like her real party is going to be this coming weekend. Josey did NOT want to wear her princess crown! She kept pulling it off.
Here is Josey in front of all of her presents that she got. She crawled right over to them.

She seemed more interested the boxes than the actual presents that were in them.

Nathan's mom got her this very big, very ugly baby. She loves it.

She got this Little Mermaid car and she thinks it is great. Of course, the new baby had to ride on it with her.

Mrs. Bullard made the cakes and they were ADORABLE. The cake above is the one that everyone ate. The one below is the one that was just for Josey to eat. She didn't do hardly any damage to it, as you can see in the pics. She really liked eating the cookies better than the cake.
