So, I know it has been awhile since I have posted, but you know life happens.

I was trying to think of all the things that we have been up to lately and there were so many different things I wanted to remember but already forgot! Ha!

First, Happy Birthday to Granny Ma! We love you so much.

Next, there were two things that I wanted to share with the blog world about Mylie. She has been climbing up the walls! That girl makes my heart jump every minute. She is climbing on the dining room chairs, the couch, the entertainment center, anything she can get her hands and feet on, she is climbing. I told Justin that we are going to have to turn our furniture upside down to keep her safe. I did resort to moving the chairs into the laundry room the other morning, because I got really tired of telling her not to get on them. My friend laughed when I told her that. She said, " Are you never gonna let her sit in a chair because she fell off of one?" I thought it was a good idea..... Anyone know were to buy a plastic bubble?

Mylie has learned how to give kisses. Real ones. She purses her lips together while making the "mmmmmmm" sound and then when she makes contact, she says "aaa". It is so stinkin' cute.

The child has a major vocabulary and an opinion about everything. She can say, hello, bye bye, momma, daddy, mimi, nanny, pop pop, Jesse, nite, nite, NO, apple, door, balloon, dog, beep beep for car, more, sing, itsy for itsy bitsy spider, and many more I am probably leaving out.

The kiss thing just gets me. I sure when she can say "I love you" it will be even better. For her to be able to show affection that way just melts my heart. She runs to give Justin a kiss when he gets home from work. The other day a Sunday School, she gave Mrs Rosser three kisses while telling her bye. Totally unprompted and so so cute.

Today we were fortunate to receive a free little tykes toddler slide. Someone at church was giving it away. Mylie LOVES it! I am hoping this gives her something to climb on rather than the furniture. She knew exactly what to do and how to do it. I didn't have to show her how to go down, she did it all by herself! She is growing up way to fast.

O.K. so I am tired and going to go to bed now, Gail and I are going to the Quilt Show in Nashville tomorrow, so I need my rest. Ha!

Oh, I have some pics I would like to get on my computer from my phone, does anyone know how to do that? Please help if you do. Email or comment will be fine.

Do you know what one of the sweetest sounds is?

When supper is finished, I clean up the Kitchen and Justin takes Mylie upstairs to take a bath. I hurry around to get the kitchen clean so that I can listen to them from the bottom of the stairs. It fills me with joy to hear the two of them playing and laughing together. He is such a wonderful dad and husband. I know that she enjoys this time with him because the other day, we traded jobs. He cleaned the kitchen and I took Mylie up for a bath. The whole time, she called for her daddy. I guess I wasn't doing it right. Ha!
