15 Months Old!

Oh sweet Hannah Lee you are 15 months old already!  You are so much less of a baby, I just can't believe it.  You have been growing so much this month and doing so many new things.  You have two new teeth (your 13th &14th!!) so you're getting close to a full set! 

You still LOVE shoes, every single day you take off your shoes, and usually your socks, in the car.  Once we arrive to our location I have to search the backseat for them, it's fun. ;)  But anything to keep you occupied in the car is fine with me! 

You say SO many words!  At your 15 month checkup the doctor was asking questions to make sure you are hitting all your milestones and she asked if you were saying three words.  You're saying about 20 words, at least!  You also repeat new words that we say every day.  Your pediatrician said you are doing VERY well for your age.  Mommy was so proud. :) 

You are such a little grown up, it's so cute.  Daddy taught you how to knock when a door is closed so sometimes when I get out of the shower in the mornings I'll hear a little tapping on the door and you saying "not not" so I will open the door.  I LOVE it!! 

You have really found your love of the iPhone this month too.  You've always been interested in it but now anytime I take your picture or take a video you walk over to me so I will show you.  You love to see videos and pictures of yourself, it's funny.  You also know how to slide your finger across the screen to see the next picture.  No one taught you that so I guess you just saw us doing it and taught yourself. 

You are a very healthy girl!  Your weight is 23lbs 12oz (66%), height is 31" (80%) and your head circumference is 18.9" (95%)!  You LOVE to eat so I'm not surprised by this one bit that you are so healthy and strong.  We have to keep lots of food in that belly of yours because we know you burn it all off!  You are VERY active for 99% of the day. 

You've started a new habit that we are not happy about.  You recently started grinding your teeth.  It hurts our ears!!  I've never heard someone grind their teeth like you do, it's terrible.  You apparently think it's fun because you're doing it ALL THE TIME now.  We're hoping this phase ends quickly!! 

You've also started making funny faces at us, usually at dinner time.  It makes me laugh so hard.  You will open your eyes really big and slowly lean your head towards me and stare and then just giggle so hard.  It's so cute!

Taking your 15 month picture was not easy.  You were way too excited to sit in a chair and pose for Mommy.   

Excited to take a picture with Mr. Lamb

Mommyyyyy!  You think I'm going to sit still for a picture?!  You're crazy! 

Seriously, I'm not going to sit still Mommy... 

This picture could not be more perfect for the silly girl that you are right now.  Running around with one shoe on (always) and opening your eyes HUGE and making faces at us.  It's so funny.   

Silly Hannah

Hannah Lee, we love you SOOOO much!  You are such a sweet girl and you make us laugh daily.  You are the best!

Happy Birthday Pops!

My Dad's 60th birthday was a few weeks ago and we couldn't let it pass without doing a little celebrating!  Tracy and I planned all week what we wanted to cook and we invited their best friends over for the evening.

Pops' birthday cake.  He loved making this face as a kid apparently because most of the pictures I had to choose from looked like this.  Ha!

Hannah looking cute eating her dinner when everyone arrived 

My parents and their BFFs (my Mom and Jan have been best friends since middle school!) 

Haley cracking me up.  Look at her little antennas!  And unsure stare... 

Girls, lets get a picture before bed!  That's how that went...  I have no idea where Leah was in all my pics but she was running around somewhere! 

Tracy imitating Pops' pretty good.  She is definitely his daughter! 

The birthday boy 

The dinner party minus Ryan and Austin.  Oops. 

Pops with his girls 

We had a great night!  It was so much fun celebrating your birthday Pops!

Today was Hannah's Thanksgiving feast at school.  Daddy was out of town for work but Mommy was able to make it!

Silly girl loooooves sticking her tongue out at the camera! 


Give me some tuuuurkey!! 

Mama hot!  That's what Hannah kept saying to me before she dug into her lunch.  She does this often, hovers her hand over her food saying "hot!" repeatedly.   

Hannah and her friend Ashlen getting after their feast.  Hannah couldn't be bothered to look up at Mommy taking another picture.  See how much food was on that plate?  Yeah, it was all gone about 15 minutes later....including some extra food from my plate that I gave her.

When Hannah started her new school she was the youngest in the class and Ashlen was the oldest and about a week into it Ms. Shauna told me that Hannah follows Ashlen everywhere and does what Ashlen does.  I asked her today if she still follows Ashlen and she laughed and said "no, Hannah doesn't follow ANYONE!  If anything, all the kids are following her!".  Little Miss Independent.  :)


No ones plate was as clean as Hannah's by the end of the meal.... 

I can honestly say that I think next Thursday Hannah is going to be in a full on turkey coma!  She apparently LOVES Thanksgiving food and can't get enough of it!  I loved that I got to spend lunch with her enjoying it all!

Little Pumpkins

Ok, since it's two weeks past Halloween I figured I better get the last of the costume/pumpkin posts done!  

Hannah got to make TWO trips to the pumpkin patch this year!  She's such a lucky girl.  :)  The first one was just the three of us, we went to take some pics and get a few pumpkins.

Same pumpkin, one year earlier!

Such a big girl now! 

Silly Hannah 

She looks so little here!

Trying to eat a gourd.  Yum.

The best shot I could get of her sitting on the wagon.  She was very busy checking out the pumpkins

She thought sitting around in her monkey suit was sooo funny!

Cute little monkey

A bit confused why she was back in the same spot as earlier

A few weeks later we headed back to the pumpkin patch with Hannah's friend Emma!  Since Emma is the exact same age as Hannah was last year when we went she needed to show her the ropes.

Silly girl making faces

That's it for our Halloween posts, Hannah loved dressing as a monkey every single time!

Halloween Party 2012

The Friday before Halloween we went to our friend's Mike and Amanda's annual Halloween party.  It was a blast as usual!

Amanda is a master decorator and really pays attention to every detail!  Her house was transformed for the party.

This year we dressed up as "yard art"!  I was a pink flamingo and Austin was a garden gnome.  I even had feather eyelashes and pink hair.

Here are just a few of the costumes.  Many I just forgot to take pictures of and many are not appropriate for my family blog.  ;) 

Miss Piggy and Kermit.  Hey, you know what happens when you paint your body??  Everything you touch turns that color, FYI. 

Katie and me
Pink flamingo and the 2nd half of the "what up with that" skit from SNL.  Everytime Lunchbox sang "ooooohhh-weeee!  what up with that?!" Katie had to dance.  It was pretty funny.   

Neighbors who (without talking to each other) dressed up as two of the Kardashian sisters.  Khloe and Kim 

There's a gnome in the bar!

Vampire cupcakes are yummy 

TK and Austin
TK's costume was hilarious.  If you went to A&M you get it.  His old college days uniform didn't exactly fit him anymore but he pulled it off! 

It was a great party!
