My Birfday :)

Ok, so no surprise...it's been a while!  Since my last post, tons of things have gone on, but here are a few snippits:)

My birthday was April 3rd....as a fun treat, Joey had her first sleepover at Nonny's house.  Johnny and I went with a group of friends to the Rock and Worship tour at the American Airlines Center.  There were tons of great bands!  My favorites were ironically the 2 we got to see the least of: Addison Road and Mercy Me.  The concert was great..loud, but great!  After the concert we went to Fox and Hound to drink some beers and play some shuffle board!  The last time I looked at the clock that night it was in fact 2 the next morning!  Johnny and I haven't stayed up that long in a looooooong time!  We went to my mom's at noon for lunch...yummy!!!  We picked up Joey, and she did just fine at her first sleepover (we will have to do it again..hint, hint Nonny)!  Here is a pic of Jae, Brad, Johnny, Me, Amanda (and baby girl in the oven), and Brandon at the concert.


This is not an event, but we always get compliments on Joey's eyes..here is an insane picture of them!  Man, they really are blue!!!


Joey's new favorite toy is not made by hasbro or playskool...it's our side table with magazines, remote controls, and coasters on it!  She goes to this table every chance she gets!  The other day we had to block her with some pillows just to get a point across...the point that we told her not to go there, and she persisted!  In this picture she is looking up at me as if to say "mommy look at me, I'm going to my table to play!!"


Easter is an amazing holiday!  It's the day Jesus rose from the dead for goodness sake!  Our Easter started a few weeks early when we went shopping for Joey's Easter dress...Johnny was like "Why does she need a special dress?  She's got dresses in her closet!"  I couldn't come up with a response other than "That's what you do, it's Easter...you get a new dress!"  So here it is, her purty Easter dress :)  She seemed to like it..what do you think?


Yummy!  We are moving toward big people food for Joey instead of baby food.  Last night we tried lasagna!  The minute we put food on her plate she didn't stop eating!  We ended up cutting her off 45 minutes after starting dinner to give her a bottle!  She does not eat quick like mommy and daddy!  But check out that grin...the girl loves to eat I guess!



This is Joey using her table as a walking toy....anything is a walking toy these days!  She is starting to get more and more brave with walking and has taken, at most, 10 steps by herself!  Her birthday is April 23rd...next Thursday...and I'm hoping she will be walking all on her own by then!  We will see :)

Oh my goodness...that Easter dress picture is something ELSE!! She looks like such a big girl...but still no hair, huh? She will be a blondie for sure!

I agree with you, friend. A new Easter dress is a must! Although Viv's was technically a new/old dress as I bought it in August on clearance!

Very fun post. You have GOT to do this more often!
