Like I Said......

Gemma has my hands FULL! Yesterday she knocked over our christmas tree! I have know idea how she did it since she was in her walker but I've been asking this very question a lot lately. She has torn open some of Vance's gifts so "early merry christmas to you hunny."

Things I have learned this past year being a mommy:

-expect the unexpected
-no glass orniments or maybe none at all
-clean up after your kids at the end of the day or you'll be cleaning all day
-put presents under the tree christmas eve night and NO sooner
-dish towels work perfectly as a temporary cabinet lock
-do not adopt a dog until your kids are older or you WILL go crazy
-the evenings are your best friend to get things done and relax
-planning out your day makes you more productive and things run smoothly (sort of)

I've got a Climber

My dear sweet Gemma has my hands full these days. She's been trying to climb up on the couch and out of her crib and she has finally done just that. Gemma loves to throw her bottle out of the crib for some reason I don't know why. Well, Yesterday, after she woke up from her sunday nap, I here the thud of her bottle hit the floor. A few minutes later, I here a HUGE thud and Gemma crying her heart out. I rushed into her room to find her flat on her back with big ol tears running down her face. I immediatly grabbed her into my arms and held her tight and cried right along with her. I felt soooo horrible! I couldn't believe I let her get hurt like that, it broke my heart. She wasn't hurt to bad just scared and she only cried for a short minute before she got distracted with something. She is one tuff cookie! Then today, as she was playing around on the floor, I looked over to check on her and there she was. Some how she figured out a way to get herself onto the couch ALL BY HERSELF! I couldn't believe it. I was so proud of her! The only thing is, she hasn't perfected the getting down part. She still needs some help with that.

Also, since I'm talking about her, Gemma loves to wave and say hi to people. It's seriously the cutest thing and she wins over a lot of hearts. She is just the cutest and sweetest thing that has ever happened to me and I just LOVE her to pieces!!!

Advice and the Ellen Show

I have stopped giving Gemma formula and in place I give her whole milk. And she only gets her bottle during nap time and bed time which adds up to be only 2 or 3 bottles a day. However, I'm having troubles getting her to eat solid foods such as hot dogs, steamed veggies, fruits, etc. She eats crackers and baby food from a jar just fine but I don't quit understand why she wont eat the big girl foods. I need help! Is this normal? I feel sometimes that I'm starving her but I just don't know how to get her to eat! I even tried drenching her veggies in butter with some salt to give it more flavor but she's being quit the stubbern one. I need some more experienced motherly advice!!


Vance has been dieing to open up one of his xmas gifts so I finally gave in in exchange he tell me what he's getting me for my birthday. He's been giving me hints and clues and telling me that I'll never guess it. He was right! I never would have guessed this in a million years! He's sending me to the ELLEN SHOW!!!! I watch her nearly everyday she just makes my day she's so funny! It's really the only show that makes me crack up laughing out loud. Vance just looks at me and rolls his eyes. He doesn't quit get why I like her so much. I have always thought that it would be fun to go to one of her shows but never actively tried to go. It was always just a thought. I am abselutely THRILLED with this gift and can't THANK my husband enough!! Especially since he'll have Gemma for at least 3 days while I have some FUN in the great state of CALI!!! WooHoo!!!!!!

What's Wrong with ME!

If being an AIRhead was a diagnoses, I would definitely have it. I believe the symptoms would be as follows:

Thursday: SLIPPING on wood covered in early morning frost just to give your hunny a kiss and broosing your upper right arm.

Friday: Absent mindedly SHUTTING your thumb in your car door and not even knowing it until you start to walk away. Then PANICING because you've just realized what you have done, CURSING out loud because of the PAIN, becoming completely ANGRY at the world (and the car), then break down CRYING because "it really really does HURT."

Saturday: SHUTTING your truck door as you turn away to walk back into the house and your knee decides to get in the way and you get a silver dollar sized broose. (Lets not forget, your hunny just laughs because he can't believe your luck.)

IF any of these or similar like incidences accure contact your BRAIN or try to FIND it.
