Florida and other stuff

We just got back form vacation a few days ago....we went to visit J's parents in Florida and then went to Orlando for 4 nights...we couldn't get Nola out of the pool! Tank god for the zero entry not that it would have mattered....she would go running in up to her neck (with us following of course) and a ton of times she fell and went under and we would just pick her right up and she wouldn't even be upset...why cant she do that in swimming lessons? Thank god she loves the water, the beach will be a lot of fun this year!

When we got home I had to bring Nola for her 15 month check-up. I always dread these because of the shots...I cant bare to see her in pain...anyway..I knew that Nola was thin..But I mean tall and slender no sickly skinny - she doesn't have a big appetite and when she is teething she pretty much doesn't eat...Well she only weighed 20.8 which was a pound less than last time so now she has fallen off the "curve" so we have to go back in a month to get weighed....J was very concerned....I mean yeah I know she needs more fat and isn't a big eater but she also started walking and is very active....I think she will gain weight and be fine. I don't want to freak out about it. That's not going to accomplish anything...

She is hysterical...her personality has really started to come out...she laughs constantly and squeals with excitement and dances to anything musical...she is pure joy!

Thursday, January 27, 2011 time has flown

I know I have been MIA..I don't know how you all do it...I cant seem to find enough time to sit here and write all I want to write....

Nola is 15 months old...I cant believe where the time has gone. She is the love of my life..she is more than that but words can not describe....

She walks, she laughs a lot, she hugs, she kisses, and her smile is infectious...I am not sure what I did with my life before her. Its not all roses all the time I have said to many people being a mom and taking care of her is easy..its the sleep deprivation that is an absolute killer...Yes, she sleeps 7-5 or sometimes longer but when she is teething it is a nightmare..I never remember anyone telling me teething times could be so bad! I think her last bottom eye tooth is coming in and then hopefully the top ones wont be so bad....she is such a good, good little girl.

For now, this is all I have time to write...Ill leave you with some pictures of my Nola Bear and hope to post again soon....I check all your blogs all the time though to make sure you are all doing OK :-)
