I wanted to share some pictures with you all. I have a confession... Weewee isn't quite yet a year old, and I've taken over 20,000 pictures of her.

For whatever reason, I became obsessed with taking pictures, not long after she was born. I want her to have plenty of pictures when she's older. I want her to be able to show her childhood to her children. Plus, I just think she's beautiful. 
Yes, I need help. 
So, don't be shocked when I share a ton of pics from time to time. I have plenty to share.

Father's Day.

I've known Chadski was an amazing father pretty much since the day I met him. Embee was four when Chadski and I started dating. I knew the moment I found out I was pregnant, that Chadski would be the greatest father ever to our child. He's proven me right thus far. Seeing him and Weewee together today really made me happy. Chadski is the perfect example of why we celebrate fathers. He's fantastic. No doubt in my mind Weewee will grow up to be extra amazing, because he's her dad. To make this Father's Day even more special,  Chadski's dad arrived today for a two week visit! I'm beyond excited!  It was amazing getting to see Weewee meet her Papa for the first time. So many special moments today. Today was definitely a good day.

Useful Words. Wisely used. Use Your Words June 2014.

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them! You'll thank me later!

I'm using: Fry an egg ~ scalding ~ frozen ~ endless days ~ maniacal

As I read these words, a recent struggle in our life came racing into my mind. So, I will use these words to tell you my most recent tale of woe. 

I have gone through many struggles in my life. At times I felt like I had truly reached the end of my rope…

A is for amazing. B is for bottle. C is for climb.

I know I'm biased, but I think Weewee is amazing. It is genuinely a joy to be her Mama. She is happiness personified. It is so rare for her to be cranky. When she is cranky it never lasts long. She is fun, loving, and her joy is contagious. I'm blessed. She can say quite a bit, and I have really been able to tell that she has a good understanding of what I say to her. She now says: Mama, Dada, doggy, nigh night, see you later (ee uu ate er), num num, ut oh, no, ball, yay, ow, Nana, doll, out, up. I was talking to her Godmother on Tuesday, and we were discussing her vocabulary. It was Weewee's nap time, so I picked her up and went in the kitchen to make her a bottle. I said to her Godmother... You know what word she doesn't say, that shocks me? Bottle or baba. A few weeks back she said it two or three times, which was exciting, but nothing since. Her Godmother said she probably doesn't say it, because she doesn't need to. I know when she needs a bottle and I …

So, I have never been the biggest fan of pink, and these days I like it even less than usual. Though, I should say... there is something about pink and teal or pink and zebra that appeals to me lately. Pink in general isn't my cup of tea. I prefer greens and purples. Weewee totally takes after me. She is obsessed with the color green, particularly lime green. That's my girl. Back to pink and why it is on my nerves lately... This past week, Weewee had a fever. I monitored it and it was okay. She is teething. Not even a year old, and already has a mouth full of teeth, and has more on the way. This time around she is getting molars. I have been warned that they can be quite troublesome. Well, based on the fever and the fact my happy child has had some grumpies... Yes, troublesome indeed.

So, Chadski gets home from work last Thursday, and he is spending time with Weewee and I am doing stuff around the house. I come back to the living room and pick her up... HOLY MOLY! She was burn…
