Happy Friday!

This has seriously been a loooooong week. Probably several factors played into it feeling so long. Number one being the fact that Monday is Memorial Day. When there's a long weekend in the future, the time before that seems to just drag. Only 9 more days of schools for the kiddos. It seemed so long while it was happening but thinking back it's flown by! 11 more days of work for me and then Julianna and I will begin our summer vacation. She's going to be out of daycare for 2 months. They are already pretty sad that she's going to be gone for a little while. She's the life of the party! I plan to take her by once a week or so to visit her baby friends and her teachers.

This week, Julianna has been obsessed with her babydolls. They've always been lying around in her pile of toys but this week she decided they were interesting. What I found interesting was that she found everything in the toy pile that was a baby doll and put them all together to love on. How cute! She's also been pushing around her doll stroller/walker all the time now. Taking her baby out of it and putting it back in. I love to watch her do new things!
Tomorrow I'm having a Thirty-One party at my house. Apparently, I picked an awful weekend to have a party. Everyone is going out of town for Memorial Day. I didn't put together that this was Memorial Day weekend when I picked a date for my party. I think I may have a couple of girls coming though so that's good.

After the party, I'm having a girls night out with Amanda for some shopping! Josh and John are on baby duty while we enjoy some girl time. I'm pretty excited!

Have a great weekend, yall! :)

juju: the climber

Julianna turned 14 months old this week. Happy 14 Months, JuJu Bug!!

She's still not walking but she's almost free standing. But she CAN CLIMB! She climbs all the way up the stairs and back down. She climbed up on the stage at church today that's about 2 feet tall. No walking, but climbing and it's scary. I'm frightened and paranoid about her taking a bad fall. I think she'll be walking within this month. I guess we'll see!

She also cut 2 more teeth this week. Pretty painlessly, I suppose. I had no idea she was getting any teeth until she was in my face laughing yesterday. If all of her teeth would come in so gently, that would be fantastic!!

Enjoy a few pictures from our weekend! :)

family day

This past Sunday, Josh, Julianna, and I spent a lot of time with both sides of our family. Our first stop was Lexi's birthday party at the park. She turned 7. The kids had a blast playing at the park!

Then we headed to another park for a belated Mother's Day celebration with my family. On my side of the family, there are 3 one year olds!! Talk about exciting!! Overall, it was a wonderful day of celebration and food!!

mother's day 2011

I just realized that I never posted about the cute gift I got from Julianna for Mother's Day. Josh bought me several cute things and a sweet card. At Julianna's daycare, they planted flower seeds and then decorated a cute flower pot for Mother's Day. It's so cute! What a treasure! My plant had even sprouted! :)

Julianna is now the proud owner of her very own car: a little tikes cozy coupe!! She even likes to stand to drive!! :)

our week

Overall, we've had a great week. What a fast week it was. Friday came before I knew it. I'm surprised it felt so fast because school is pretty intense right now. We take the EOGs the week after next... keep my students in your prayers! I know they can do it... we will because we can!

I'll post more about Mother's Day tomorrow but yesterday, Julianna's daycare class hosted a Mother's Day Tea for the mommies. It was too cute! Cookies and tea (plus cheese puffs for the little ones). It was awesome to socialize with the other moms. We have been blessed to find such an awesome daycare for Julianna. Her teachers are amazing! I truly appreciate them!

After our tea, Julianna and I headed back to my school for our annual Spring Fling. Julianna had a great time until it started to rain (we were outside) and we had to stand under a tent. Baby girl doesn't like to be be still!

Check out a few pictures from our week:

thunder thighs and the crab walk

Julianna went to the doctor yesterday for a checkup on her ears since she's had 2 ear infections back to back. Doctor said they looked great. They weighed her while she was there too... baby girl has gained about 5 pounds in the past 3 weeks! That's just about her birth weight! It's all in those thunder thighs.

I have a feeling those thunder thighs will be slimming up pretty soon. Julianna crawls everywhere but lately she's introduced the crab walk into her toolbox of movement. She's also been standing on her own for brief moments as well. I don't think it'll be long till we have a walker... exciting and scary at the same time!

Now enjoy a few pictures from dinner and bathtime tonight! :)
