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 hubby, 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. My family dotes on her and her daddy thinks she is sheer perfection !

I am still torn as to whether we will have another via surrogacy, but I will soon make a decision. Hubby has pretty much left that decision up to me.

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 hubby 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 !

Nineteen Months Old Today- The 411

My sweet girl is 19 months old today ! Where does time go?

She is as busy as ever and a ball of bubbly energy.

She is starting terrible twos already and her new favorite phrase is “no no no !”

My baby’s latest obsession is READING ! She is constantly shoving books under our noses to read to her ! We have started the Baby Can Read program and the challenge is getting her to sit for extended periods. We will continue until I get her conditioned to sitting. She had no problem sitting at preschool but at home with Mommy, it is different.

We are planning her 2nd birthday bash. The theme will be Tea for 2 ! We are taking her to London for 6 days and we will have high tea at the Ritz for her birthday. My mom, hubby, and a few of our friends are supposed to be going. I am putting the travel plans together now.

We are excited to do this with her. I decided against doing a birthday party for her annually because people always RSVP and do not show up. I would rather plan trips and make photo albums for her with all of memories to view when she is older.

This summer, we plan to take her to Costa Rica, Dubai, and hopefully can get to Tampa to Busch Gardens Africa before it gets hot.

We are looking for a lake house to purchase in Florida before Fall so that we can move there as our Winter residence because it is consistently warmer. It has been extremely cold the past few years during Fall and Winter and we have spent quite a bit of time in FL this year and fell in love with it.

Until next post….
