SERIOUSLY!!! One already!!!

This is going to be a long post but if you hang in there you'll get to see some good pics!
We took Josie to the fair for the first time on Sunday, July 26th. She liked the animals but didn't really care about the cows or the pigs. I mean really, think about it! The pigs are always sleeping and the cows, all you see from where you stand is their butts. So what's so great about that! She really liked the rabbits and petted a couple. The goats she got a kick out of because there were a couple in different pens that kept ramming at each other. Guess they didn't like their cellmates! She had her first corndog. Not really this anal mom would only let her have the breading. But she liked it just the same. We also got her her first ice cream cone. That was funny she was trying to lick at it like a dog.
Papa Doug, Mama Carole and Grandpa & Grandma Jones bought her her first swing set for her birthday and Papa Doug brought it over for Daddy to build. So he and Chris worked on it in the garage and it took them 3 nights to get it all put together.

Saturday, August 1st, Daddy & I took her to the Indianapolis Zoo for her birthday. She bought a monkey and a monkey book when we were done. Here she liked the big animals and the sharks in the petting tank. We didn't let her actually pet one because all she would have done is splash the water and I'm sure they don't want that. We plan on this being her yearly birthday tradition.

(In this photo she has just got done trying her first Spaghetti-O's and her first strawberry smoothie. So far this kid has liked everything we have given her except for carrots! She'll eat them if she's hungry.)

She literally fell asleep in 3 minutes after we left the zoo.
Sunday, August 2nd, we had her birthday party! In attendance was Papa Doug, Mama Carole, Uncle Rick, Aunt Michelle, Riley, Kayla, Uncle Nathan, Aunt Emily, Granny Glodyne, Uncle Barney, Jackie, Jennifer, Becky, Aunt Susie, Dawnna, Nathan Garrett, Austin, Cindy, Allyson, Mackenzie, Madeline, Grandpa & Grandma Jones, Aunt Brandy, Nana Louise, Aunt Vickie, Aunt Sandy, Brad, Penny, Abby, Bopper. I don't think I forgot anyone!
She seemed to have a really good time! Didn't mind at all that there was a bunch of people there she just had fun watching all of the kids.
She absolutely destroyed her cake and ate about half of it. At first she started with just the icing, then she found the cake with her hands. Then once she had so much on her hands she just decided to stick her face in it. Why bother with the hands!

This is what was left of the cake!
Now onto the decorations! If it hadn't been for Aunt Emily coming to help me during Josie's naptime it wouldn't have all gotten done. So THANK YOU Aunt Emily!!!

(The monkey cookies Mikey & I decorated)
As far as presents she got alot of clothes and toys. She got a Build a Bear gift certificate from the Hudoff's which we are going to go spend this weekend.
While she was napping Monday afternoon I opened up all of her toys and got them out of the package. When she woke up from her nap and saw the toys she wanted off of my lap. There was no cuddling to be had from her until she played with her toys. That was quite funny because she always has to cuddle after naps.
On Monday, August 3rd, Her BIRTHDAY!!! she and I went to Kohl's, Michaels and then we went and picked up lunch for us and Papa, Mama & Granny. Josie had her first mashed potatoes, biscuit and green beans from KFC. She ate all of it really good. That night when Daddy got home we opened up what we got her and then we went out to play on the swing set. She had a blast on the slide. She especially liked going down the slide head first on her belly. I figured it would scare her and told Daddy so but then she laughed!

And the little terd is trying to climb the slide already!

Tuesday, August 4th, we went for our first year check up. She weighs 24 lbs 10 oz and is 31.25 inches tall. She is 75 % in weight and 97% in height. Developmentally she is 17 months & 1 week. Smart little booger!
Wednesday, August 5th, she stayed home with Grandma Jones and Aunt Brandy all day and when we got home and Daddy went outside she went to the door after him. This is what I found!

So we may be then next parents on the news! with an escaped kid!!! :-)
Well I think I've bored everyone enough plus I'm tired of typing!!!


  1. Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment over at P is for Party. I got into wedding and event planning after my wedding. I went to work for the woman who planned our big day. I worked with her for a few years before I started having children. Now I am a stay at home and just plan parties for fun. I have been "hired" a few times which has been fun and take me back to the 'ole days. =) If planning parties is your passion, you can definitely pursue it for extra income. Another idea is to find a niche on Etsy. Are you familiar with the website? For instance, if you are crafty, you could sell paper goods, etc on their site. Hope this helps! Cute party by the way! =)

  2. Thank you for your comment! I never get comments.
    Yal I've checked out Etsy and am trying to come up with a niche. I have several ideas running through my head.
    Thank you! I love your blog!!!
