Almost 2

Seen enough of Mya lately?  Yes, I know, I’ve been posting a lot of her lately.  Business is slow right now.  That’s all my doing so that we could really pack and get things ready for the move.  I don’t do so well with a million things on my plate.  I start to freak out and bite the inside of my cheek and become kind of grouchy.  Nobody needs to be subjected to that from me.  lol  So once we get moved and settled and business is back to normal, there will be lots of other beautiful faces to observe on my blog.  Promise!

Wow, before my very eyes, our baby girl is turning into a little girl.  🙁  Okay, not that sad.  Toddlerhood is um, well, let’s just say, challenging!!!  I posted a video of her on our family blog the other day of one of her tantrums.  I will spare you, but believe me, it’s pretty bad these days.  But then there are great days too.  Like yesterday.  We got the water table out and Mya had such a great time.  She played with it for over an hour.  She was so happy and therefore, so was I!  So I am ready for the terrible 2’s to be over with already.  Oh yeah, she’s not even two yet!  Not for 2 more weeks!  Oh man.

She’s getting so thin 🙁  Look at that tummy.  It’s almost gone!

And her thighs?  What thighs?  No more rolls.

Baby, difficult toddler, no matter what she is, she’s my sweet girl.  Love you “Boo Boos”.  😉

Thank you Weather

This morning, I met up with a family that booked me forever ago!  I thought for sure it was going to rain too, but nope, it held off for us!  I hadn’t seen this little guy since October.  It’s amazing how much children can change in such a short amount of time!  We found this amazing hill full of wild flowers!!  Gorgeous.  Oh the things I will miss about Texas!


Today after Mya’s nap, I was playing around with her hair while she ate her snack.  I’ve been wondering if her hair was long enough for little pigtails, so today I tried it out and it was so cute.  Next thing you know, I have her in a pink tutu, pearls, and we are in the back yard taking pictures.  Not taking pictures of her, no the grass!  If she thinks I’m taking pictures of her, the tears will start.  😉  Just taking a break from all the packing!

Long Time No Post

Well, we have been super busy packing, selling furniture, and living in an empty house.  It just gets emptier and emptier as the days go on!  People have come and bought just about everything that we planned on selling.  So much has been bought that our yard sale that we were planning on having isn’t going to happen anymore.  There’s hardly anything to sell!  A lady even came to buy our plants!  I wanted to keep some until we found out that the movers won’t have our stuff to N.Y. until about 12 days after they pick it up.  🙁  Not sure plants could survive for that long unless they were cacti.  lol  We went and bought some new, smaller furniture at IKEA.  Well, we bought most of it.  The couch that we picked out was out of stock but they told us that we could order it at the Brooklyn store and have it delivered to our apartment.  Cool!  Right?  So we went ahead and bought everything else to match for the living room and brought it home, got home, called the Brooklyn store, and say what?!  The couch color that we wanted has been discontinued.  Wow, so now on to plan B.  What was plan B?  Oh yeah, there wasn’t one.  So now, we have half of a living room set and no couch!  We’re going to figure that one out when we go up to NY to find our apartment at the end of this month.  Out of all of the craziness that has been going on, this couch situation is really the only thing that has stressed me out.  Everything else has been so easy!  Poor Mya has been trapped in this house almost everyday while I pack, post things on Craig’s List, respond to Craig’s List emails,…  So today after her nap, I decided that we needed to go to the park and have some fun!

The girl is in love with flowers at the moment.  She has to pick them everywhere we go, especially the “Panda Lions” (dandelions).  So today she saw these flowers and was fascinated when I showed her how you can make bracelets and necklaces out of them.  She sat there with me while I picked and tied these together.  She loved it!

While we were cleaning out the attic, Mya found her pacifiers from when she was a baby.  She never really liked them and used them for maybe a few weeks.  Today it was a different story.  She wanted to have one!!  So we let her and told her it was just for play while we were in the garage.  She sucked on her paci and tried to get into her baby swing.  LOL  Ryder finally convinced her to put her Papa Bear in the swing instead.  She pitched a major fit when I told her that we had to put the paci up.  Man, what happened to my “big girl”?

Oh So Sweet

I am working on the newborn pictures from Saturday now.  I will upload more as I work on them.  Sweet little thing!  Here is one of his adorable big brother.

I think they have the same smile!
