Twenty-three Months Old – The 411

I can not believe that my baby is almost TWO !

Time flies by so fast and if you blink, you miss it.

I am enjoying these last few days of ONEHood ! My baby girl is a handful ! She has quite an extensive vocabulary and is now also repeating words we say, whether you are speaking directly to her or not. She sings the commercial jingles and loves loves loves the children’s songs on YouTube ! If I hear Family Finger and Baby Shark ONE more time, I will pull my hair out by the roots. Lol.

We are shopping and packing and getting ready for our trip to the UK for her birthday and I am so excited to share this experience with her.

Tomorrow, we are headed to DC to hang out with friends, my sister and nieces, and my sister-girl is flying in from Canada. I can not wait to see everyone.

I hope all of you fellow bloggers and readers are well.

Till next time ~

Twenty Two Months Old – The 411

I am still in awe of this little creature I birthed. She is now 22 months old, soon to be 23 months old in a few weeks.

She is a sweet, strong-willed, chatty, music loving, learning enthused little girl. She is the perfect mix of silly, smart, curious, and loving.

This little girl is the best gift God could have ever blessed me with.

I am still torn as to whether I will have another via surrogacy, but I will soon make a decision.

We are busy preparing for the wee one’s birthday bash in London.

We will be departing the day after her 2 yr old physical. I am praying she doesn’t feel irritable after the appointment. I am not certain if vaccines are on the agenda but I do know that she is getting her first blood draw. I hate it ! I am glad that allergy testing will be done.

Happy Birthday To Me ! – The 411

A few weeks ago, I had a great birthday celebration with my family. We took a trip to Savannah, Georgia and spent four days playing tourists.

We had a lovely hotel suite overlooking the Savannah River in the historic district.

We took a dolphin sighting tour and ate at a lot of popular hotspots. I was sorely disappointed that Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room was closed due a death in their family. That was the one place I was pressed to go to. Their food is amazing!

I am still getting gifts for my month long birthday celebration. I love it !

My daughter’s father gave me these Gucci sunglasses.

My mom gave me a gift daily the week of my birthday from my baby girl…

Mommy’s stemless wine glass

MOM Bracelet

Stainless steel teaspoon

This custom card was made in my baby girl’s image !

A view of our hotel from the boat

Dolphin

A local burger place that had 174 burgers on their menu !

A spa gift certificate from my sister, J.

A box of fresh baked cookies from a friend who has a bakery in NC.

Needless to say, I am enjoying the month of July.

I am dreading August because we are packing up and putting everything in storage and moving back into the oceanfront condo. We will be traveling to DC for one week and will be in Nashville next week to attend Anita Baker’s concert and do some sightseeing. It will be a hectic month. We are then departing for NY on September 2nd and will be in town for a few days for appointments before leaving for the UK to celebrate the baby’s birthday with a tea party.

Hope you all are enjoying summer !

Twenty Months Old – The 411

Today my baby is officially 20 months old !

Can you believe how time has flown by?

Above is a picture of us at her first gymnastics class.

She had a blast !

We are enrolling her in a dance/music class this week as well.

We definitely want to expose her to as much in life as possible. What ever she expresses an interest in, we will help cultivate and develop those interests.

I am struggling with the fact that my baby will be TWO years old in four months! Wow !

We just got back from a trip to Las Vegas. My mom and I flew my nephew out for his birthday. The baby had a great time shopping on the strip and eating out. We took a gondola ride which she enjoyed so much. My child loves water!

Here is a pic of my mom and the baby on the gondola. I can not wait to take her to Venice to ride one there….

Until next post…. I hope everyone is well !
