i have an addiction...

...and that is buying clothes for my little peanut.  i went SLIGHTLY out of control today.  i bought her THREE new swimsuits.  and she got her easter dress.  and a few other things.  wanna see?

one of her three new swimsuits.  this one was from the children's place.

this is her easter dress, also from the children's place.  she also got the matching sunhat.  i love this.

these super cute sunglasses were 2 for $5.

here are swimsuits #2 and #3.  they obviously came from old navy.

she also got a really cute polo dress from old navy, but i couldn't find it on the website.

i have an addiction.

bath time!

mia got a little messy last night whilst nomming on some carrots, so she for sure needed a bath!

she loves bathtime.

please disregard the nasty caulk around the tub.  no matter how many times i clean it, it still turns black. 

we'll be out of our apartment soon.  i CANNOT wait.

i think i may be crazy

so, a few weeks ago my good friend karen starting this thing called "couch-to-5K".  i was intrigued, so i did some research about it on-the-line.

i am NOT a runner, but as i was reading about this, i was thinking,"is this thing as do-able as it seems?"

well, yesterday i completed week one, day one, and so far, i think it may be.  it was rough, i'm not gonna lie.  i'm thinking i'm going to have to do week one at least twice, but i may actually be able to do this. 

so for now, i'm gonna keep on keepin' on, but i could definitely use some encouragement.

yeah, she's definitely my daughter.

so, today we ventured out to our local library for storytime with my creepy internet friend meg and her little girl, katie.  don't worry, she isn't creepy.  but she is an internet friend.  songs were sang, books were read, and toys were played with.  knee-slapping fun was had by all.

we decided on lunch at IHOP (mmmm....breakfast for lunch).  since i decided to partake in the goodness that is all-you-can-eat pancakes, i figured why not share some with my 8-month old? 

she nommed on some pancakes. 

that's my girl.

disclaimer:  i gave her plain pancakes.  no butter.  no syrup.

nope, not a fluke.

maybe i should blog more often...

yeah, so remember last post when i mentioned that mia hadn't been eating her solids so well?

tonight, i ate my words.

she chowed down on bananas.

i have my fingers crossed that it wasn't a fluke.

holy moly...

where have all the blog posts gone (sung to the tune of paula cole's "where have all the cowboys gone?")?  i am such a slacker.  holidays are over, so i'm no longer working crazy hours (yay, retail).  well...

mia is growing.

and getting older.

it's freaking me out.

she is still the coolest, most chill baby on the planet.  still sleeping through the night, despite teething (hello two bottom, middle toofers!) 

she's up to 16 pounds, 15 ounces.  at least that was the count a few weeks ago at her check-up.  she's around the 75th percentile in both height and weight.  as for her head...

90th.  my daughter has a giant melon.  she gets it from her mama.

we started solids well before thanksgiving, but with both of us working retail, we sort of got off track.  we've started back up within the past two weeks, and it isn't going as well.  she refuses to open her mouth to take the spoon.  i don't know what the deal is.  she'll get it in time, i suppose.  it's just frustrating.  how can she not gobble up 'naners and peaches?  anybody have any suggestions? 

mia will soon be making her second trip to the beach in under a year.  this time, we'll be vacationing with her daddy/my hubby and my cousin and her family.  we're all very excited. 

here are a few pictures to catch everyone up:

her first halloween.  dressed as nemo, and obviously tuckered out from too much candy-grabbing.

meeting santa.  note the hand up by his beard.  she pulled it.  thank god it was real.  i was just waiting for my kid to be the one to traumatize all the other kids in line by pulling his beard off. 

on christmas day.  mia on the left, bff ava on the right.  kickass elmo in the middle.

i promise not to stay away so long next time.  please forgive me.
