18 Months

At the doctors office

Eating yummy frozen yogurt

Today Tori is officially 18 months! We celebrated a little by getting pictures taken at JCPennys, going out for a light lunch, winning a huge mega cool bouncing ball, and taking pictures in a photo booth. Of course all the fun stuff was ruined with a trip to the doctors office and shots, but Tori is a trooper didn't cry for long. Plus we got frozen yogurt after wards.

Anyway. Here are her size percentages for the record...
Weight-20.41lbs- 4.49%
Length- 31.1 inches- 34.13%

Also for the record here a few things Tori does now,
colors, plays with stickers, unfortunately hits other kids, says tissue, please, cheese, thank you, grandpa, the noise for a porscha, likes the song head shoulder knees and toes, throws trash away, loves to play in the car, read, likes to eat cottage cheese and strawberrys, without a doubt her favorite show is World Word and she asks to watch it specifically.

Tori really has never been a big kisser. She tends to give me one maybe two kisses a day and that is it. However lately she has been more than happy to give the camera kisses. I don't get it.

Wake Up Look

Poor Tori inherited this really confused wake up look from me.

Lucky Shot

Tori and Cousin Brockston

When we looked at this picture of Tori and Brockston we were surprised it turned out so cute. Tori was in full energy mode, only posing for short moments at a time. Brockston was in the mood to be held, and not taking pictures.

Sleeping with Shoes

Oh my heck, let me tell y'all, Tori only took a 20 minute nap Sunday, and that made her crazy. Tori would not allow either Jake or I to take off the shoes she wore to church. So when it was time for her to go to sleep the shoes stayed on the whole night. Luckily Tori woke up happy enough that she didn't mind to much when I took them off to get her dressed. However she did want them back on pretty soon after she was dressed.

Waynes B-Day in the GT40

This post is dedicated to my father in law, Wayne.

F.Y.I. This is really freaking sweet car. It is a Ford GT40. Ford originally made the GT40 to put Ferrari to shame. The GT40 did just that. So you can only imagine that this really freaking sweet car is really freaking FAST. Any car lover has love for this car.

My father in law, to say the least, is a car lover. Therefore he has love for the GT40. A lot of love for that matter. So when he was giving a birthday ride in the one pictured it made his 60th birthday one of the most memorable. He said it was the faster car he has ever been in.
Looking good Wayne!

This is car is one the rarest most expensive cars I've ever seen so Jake and I took the opportunity to take a quick family picture with it. By the way Jake took a ride in too and loved it almost just a much as his dad.

It's My Birthday!

Yes yes, it is my birthday and I am happy to say I am now 25 year old momma. I'm pretty sure the 25th year of my life is going to rock. There is just something about the number 25 I love. It sounds sexy and sophisticated. Anyway I have had a great 25th birthday, this is what I did today!

First Tori and I went out to Mimi's for breakfast. Tori liked playing with the hot sauce. Yep she has southern blood going threw her veins.
Then we came home and within a 20 minutes Tori was napping. To keep myself occupied I took pictures of myself. Hey just because I'm 25 doesn't mean I always have to act like it.

Here are all the crazy pictures I took. There are way to many to just post with out a sideshow.

Loyd and Angela came over to baby sit while and we went to go get pedicures but the place we scheduled them at was a bit shady so we ditched the place and went to the dollar store instead!
I love the dollar store. We got some pretty cool stuff. Like tweezers with a light and magnifying glass and a toothbrush holder for the shower!

Then we went to get drinks from Sonic and went to the mall. After that we went back home chatted with Angela and Loyd for a bit.

It took us a while to decide what to do but finally decided to get some thing to eat at Carrabba's. Our food was yummy but my complementary dessert was beyond yummy. I had their Sogno di Cioccolata “Chocolate Dream.” I am so happy I am pregnant right now so I have the excuse to go get some that ridiculously tasty chocolate cake when I feel like it.
The cake was so good I had to take a picture of it, well what was left of it when I thought to take a picture.

Jake and I came home chatted with Ang and Loyd a little more before they left. Now I'm blogging. In a minute I am going to go put a movie in, cuddle with Jake, and go to sleep.
What a great day!

I Don't Smoke

A couple weeks a I lost my voice for three days. I felt okay most of the time but it was a little tiring trying to speak when I couldn't. This is how I sounded...

I Worried

I was very unsure about Tori climbing up this later by herself but she did it.

The Forth with the Harris'

Jake, Tori, and I had a great 4th of July weekend! We spent all weekend with Robbin, Dennison, Carter, and Jude Harris! The Harris' are some of our best friends and it was so great to see them. We met in McCall, ID a beautiful little resort town north of Bosie where Robin spent her childhood. While we were there we went to a parade, went swimming, boating, we visited with Robins family, and saw a few of the sites of McCall. It was a lot of fun. We will for sure meet the Harris' there again.

The Harris' and us rented a condo/ cabin together at the Tamarack Resort. It was much better than staying in a hotel.

Jude and Karie

Carter and Tori flirting.

Tori checking out the goods she gathered from the parade

Please take note of the shirts Jake and I have on. They are smurf shirts Dennison and Robin made for us. Oh and this is a nice picture of my pregnant self. Here I am 21 weeks and 3 days along.

Our family's together waiting for our food

I was sharing this Fat Boy with Tori but after a few bites she stole it and claimed the rest of it as hers.

The Harris' and us out on Robin's brother in law's boat. Plus my pop-belly.

Tori was not a huge fan of the sand between her toes.

Us laying out together on the beach

100% scrappy! Wild hair, crazy face, and a milk mustache.

Baby Bump Love

Tori doesn't understand she is going to be a big sister or that I have a baby in my belly quite yet, but I have been trying. I have been getting her to give my baby bump kisses and hugs instead of jumping on it. It is the best when she does give my tummy love. (20 wees and 4 days)


Tori is a dipper. She uses carrots to did in jam, sting cheese to dip in cottage cheese, rocks, sticks and plastic to dip in water. She will also likes to dip normal things like chips and salsa. Funny thing!
