She's growin'

It's freggin' scary how fast they grow! Physically & emotionally. She walks into my bedroom (where she knows she's not suppose to be) and turns around on the way in, waves, says bye, walks in, and starts to shut the door. What!? She's not even a teenager yet, & she's already pulling the 'I'm gonna do it & you can't stop me' routine? This girl has personality & I'm definitely in for it. I'm hoping Jason & I can raise Grace the same way my parents did.

My daughter slept through the whole night, which is rare, & I thought to myself when I woke, ' Could this be a new beginning? Has she finally decided to sleep through the night?" Well, I don't think so. I woke up to a sad, hopeless looking face, covered in snot. I've been running a humidifier all day, which seems to help. She hasn't been too backed up, it's all just running out her nose. I have to be there every 4 minutes with a tissue to keep her from licking it up, like a dog. Go figure. On a cuter, much happier note, Gracie's vocabulary is really starting to widen. She says; dog, up, daddy, mama, bye, & hi. She's waving, clapping, putting her hands in the air on command, giving hugs & blowing kisses. And today I stared trying to teach her to say 'Love you', at which she says, "Loooooffuu" I've never been a huge baby person. Of coarse I was going to love and adore my own, but I've been so excited for the day that her & I can actually bond in more then just a 'heres your milk, be happy. momma loves you.' kind of way.

AZ Sports Day.

Today's the first game of the playoffs for the Cardinals, playing the Packers, & I'm not going to lie... I don't think the Cards have a chance today, but I'm hoping for a good game. I got my jersey get-up on anyways. If I recall, this jersey has seemed to carry a bit of luck this past season. We're going to my in laws today to watch ASU Bball, then the Cards.

Last night was 'date' night. We went to Padre Murphy's. (I ate too much fried food.) Came home at 8:30, and like an old married couple, we rented a redbox, & was in bed by 10pm. Don't get me wrong, we had a good time! That's what I love about us. We can have the same amount of fun being out & about on the town as we can sitting on the couch making fun of each other & just laughing at stupid stuff. If you can laugh together at dumb things & make fun of each other (in a loving way), I think you're set for a great marriage. I mean, I know I am. :-P

Walkin' Baby Feet.

Ok. I'm going to make a point to blog more, I've decided. Not because of the new year, but because I had some extra time to put this little diddy together. I'm expecting my mother be to be knocking on the door any second now. She's coming over to witness the beautifulness that is Gracie Jo. And she's walking! She took her first steps on Monday, and has been walking around like a maniac ever since. Falling, trying to run, tripping over her own feet. It's so cute to watch, and so sad sometimes because she gets soo frustrated at herself that she starts screaming and crying. She'll be a year old next month, & it's amazing how fast this first year has gone by, & so very, very sad to see the first year leave us.

Jason's team won last night, by 30 points. He cancelled practice tomorrow night, and we're going to Hooters to use our gift card, & then going to watch Texas kick some football butt.

Life has been really good lately. As it has been for a really long time. Jason told me that for the longest time he didn't understand what married people meant when they said they loved each other more and more everyday as the years went by, and that he now understands because he loves me in bigger, better, different ways all the time. It was nice to hear him share the same feelings with me that I have for him. It made me feel all warm, and... girly inside. =)

It's a new year. Maybe I'll blog more. Maybe I won't. I don't do New Year's Resolutions, so I guess we'll just have to see how these next 12 months pan out with that one. =)
