Eliza had a check up today. she's 15 months. I look at her sometimes, and just wonder how she got so big! Anyway, she weighs 19.8 lbs; in the 8%. 31in tall; in the 67%. They don't worry about them until they get into the 5%. So they said she's just tall and slender, and looks great! She says 25+ words! Mama, Dada, Rama (grandma), Hi, buh bye, baby, dar (star), peas (please), woof-woof, meow, neigh, moo, roar, uh-uh, bo (bodle), an (sometimes she can say ang), ball, no, ray (ready), up, uh-oh, I love you, wha (what), one, andy (she only said that a few times), yum, wow, oh, boo. There's been others that she's just said once, but I don't remember them. She also signs 'more', and does a fish face! She points to her eyes, ears, nose, toes, fingers, belly button, and hair. I'm so proud of my little girl! she's learning so much, and love seeing her grow! (the two top pictures are of her sitting in a little crack by my dresser and the wall, then the next two are pretty self explanatory! She already has as boyfriend!)
Our Favorite Harrisons came to visit! So we got to have our Harrison/Haws/Beard reunion!! So we tried to cram in everything! We had such a fun time together. We went and ate at Craigo's, and made cute belts, (not meant to go with our outfits in the picture) us girls talked and laughed, and talked, and laughed, and the boys jammed together, we went to Sammy's, and went shopping of course!! It was perfect! We love all being together! p.s. if you didn't notice that Candice is pregnant (cutest pregnant lady ever!), that's why we're all touching her belly in the last picture!
So Billy ordered some video games online, and was just waiting for them to arrive. I happened to be getting the mail, and hid them before he saw. I decided to send him on a treasure hunt and they would be at the end. Its hard to get guys things, so this was perfect, cuz he had already picked it out, and I knew he would like it! It took me a while to actually do it, so he was probably about to call Amazon and see where they were! Anyway, it was a lot of fun! He enjoyed it too! Not sure why I actually decided to give them to him, because I despise video games, but I guess that's what love is.
Eliza loooves purses. She'll go up a to complete stranger, snatch their purse, and walk away! Now we just need to teach her to take all the money! So I decided to make her one. I figured it could be her trick-or-treat bag, since it's orange and black, but we'll probably use it all year round. I think the coolest part is that I didn't have a pattern or anything! I usually can't just throw soemthing together like that! I think Gran would be proud!
Billy and I have been married almost 6 years. And we're still just as in love as we were when we were in High School! We have two adorble kids, Eliza Jane and Will Mason. We love being parents! We are just loving life right now and feel we are so blessed in so many ways!
