16 months old

This precious girl is growing up so fast! 
Wearing 12-18moth clothes, size 4 shoe and size 3 diapers. Weighs about 23 pounds. Cutting her 12th tooth.
  She's talking and saying at least 20 words. Thank you and hi her favorites! 
 Her personality is really coming out and she has turned into a little girl!  She is independent and wants to do what she wants to do! I am going to have a headstrong little girl but she is genuinely so sweet! She gives the best hugs and always loves to kiss!
 She is truly my little buddy! I love my days with her and as tired as I am at the end of the day, I can't wait for her to get up the next morning so we can be together again! I have never been so thankful for anything in my whole life! 

Happy Easter from P and me! :)

Things to remember about Preslee's ninth month:
  • At your 9 month appt, you weighed 17.14 and were 27.5 inches long!
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • Still wearing 6-9 month clothes!

  • You are still sleeping 10-12 hours at night and 2 naps during the day ranging between 45min-2hours! 
  • You have 4 teeth and I think you are working on more right now!
  • You are still crawling & sliding one leg as you go! 
  • You can walk behind your walker or anything that will move with you! 
  • You stand alone for many seconds at a time. A few times you have taken 1 step but then realize it and sit down quickly! 
  • You are a handful and still into everything! Poor Romeo never has his food and water down because you constantly get into it! 
  • You have started to get mad and lay down on the floor if I take something away from you!
  • Bath time is finally fun again! 
  • You are chatty! You say mama, bye-bye and finally Dada!
  • I have been working with you on animal sounds and you will growl like a lion! 
  • Big thing that happened this month is we MOVED to Little Rock! You were really good during the move & packing up process. I had lots of grandma help and couldn't have done it all without them! 
  • Romeo has started to play with you and you still love him so much! 
  • You love other kids and had so much fun at 2 birthday parties this month!
  • You have started to share kisses and everyone loves when you kiss them!

Romeo is checking you out! 
You seriously are starting to look like a toddler! Especially with shoes on! 
I just can't get enough of your sweet face! 

Our favorite team, The Arkansas Razorbacks are not doing good this year but you are still cute with your hog gear on! :) 


P- You are getting to be so much fun! I love how you can interact with me and I know soon enough you will be having lots of conversations with me! Your personality is really coming out and as much as I know we will butt heads, I love your feistiness and just love to watch you as you turn into a little person with opinions! You are figuring things out and I love seeing you learn new things!
 I know I am your mom, but I seriously think you get more beautiful every day! I love you so much sweet girl!

8 months

This is way late but wanted it on here...




Things to remember about Preslee's eighth month:
  • I don't know how much you weigh exactly but I think around 17 1/2 pounds. 
  • You are finishing up your size 2 diapers and moving on to 3s.
  • Still wearing 6 month clothes!
  • You are nursing 5 times a day.
  • You have decided you don't like baby foods so we have moved on to table foods. You aren't feeding yourself yet but you like bites of food! You eat peas, green beans, carrots, peaches, pears, cheese, any kind of bread, mashed potatoes, puffs, & yogurt melts. 
  • You are getting the hang of the sippy cup but still not drinking a lot from it, mainly just chewing on it then throwing it! 
  • You are still sleeping 10-12 hours unless your teeth are bothering you. You take a great morning nap but its harder to get you to sleep. 
  • You have 2 bottom teeth and the top one just broke through! 3 teeth in 3 weeks!
  • You are no longer taking Prevacid for your reflux and have had no problems! Yay!
  • You are crawling so fast that we lose you in the house if we aren't watching closely!
  • You can walk behind your walker and are smiling the whole time! 
  • Daddy says you are a handful when he's watching you. You are all over the place. You crawl under everything you can get under and find every electrical cord!
  • This month, you have started to not enjoy baths. Mainly you don't like when you hair has to be washed. You stand up in the tub and cry. I really hope this is a phase! 
  • You are chatty! You say mama and bye-bye. We are working hard on Dada!
  • You learned to wave and clap! 
  • Separation anxiety is still around. If I walk out of the room you cry or whine. You also want me to hold you when you are falling asleep but then when I put you down, you wake up and cry. So I have been guilty of just putting you in bed with me and taking an afternoon nap too! :) 
  • You love to be outside! Thankfully so because you went to your first Davidson Campground and it was 106 all week and we were outside a lot!
  • You spent your first night in bed with us while we were traveling! I don't sleep well when you are in bed with us but I do love having you next to me.
  • You went to Dallas for the first time with Nanny and mommy! 
  • You rode on Nanny's boat and went to the lake for the first time!
  • You still love Romeo and even try to crawl under him if he stands still next to you!
  • You love other kids and watching they play but you also showed some possessiveness over your toys while at the Campground. I am sure you will have the older child syndrome and not want to share! ha!
  • One of our favorite things is when you wrinkle your nose and snort! It's so cute! 
Outtakes of our cutie! 



Preslee- You seriously crack me up every day! You are full of personality and your facial expression are hilarious! You give me kisses every day and when you do, my heart just explodes with more love for you! Our family constantly talks about how perfect you are and how much they love you. I am so proud that you are ours and I thank God that I get to be your momma!

I love this pose and hope its a glimpse into a cheerleading future! 
Little toot turning around and not participating!
Her shirt says "This is my little black dress"! 

Preslee,  Each month I think is my favorite but watching you do so much more this month has just been a blast! I can see that my days of relaxing are done though. I know I have said this before but you really are my little buddy! I love having you with me! You make me smile constantly! I love you baby girl!

  • You are sleeping 10-12 hours at night. You don't go to bed until 8:30 or 9 but I like it because you sleep until around 8! This week you started sleeping on your side at night. You look so comfy and I just want to get in your bed and snuggle with you!

  • The newness of having a baby in our family still hasn't worn off and I am not sure it ever will! Your grandparents and great grandfathers absolutely adore you. Every time we go home, family & friends make sure they get a chance to see you! 
  • You have become a momma's girl and will cry for me especially when you are hungry or tired! You love your Daddy so much too. You smile when you see him and he figured out that he can get you out of a bad mood by putting you on his shoulders! 
  • You went to the beach and the swimming pool for the first time this month! You loved swimming and even put your face in the water.

Baby girl- You are growing up too fast! I love watching you learn new things daily! I want to soak up every second I can with you at this age.

I took about 30 pics of her and could barely narrow it down. So here are few more! :) 
Her trademark pic... She's done! :) 

Preslee- You are just a joy to be with every day! I love going in your room to get you in the mornings, I love to rock you to sleep at night and I absolutely love all the sweet smiles and laughs I get throughout the day! I feel like you really have grown up a lot this month. This seems like such a fun age. I am still in awe that you are my daughter and I thank God for you everyday! I love you more than words can say!

Preslee- I didn't know I could love anything so much! I also don't know how my love for you will grow more because I feel like my heart is full now that I have you! You are my little buddy and I love spending my days with you! Daddy and I argue over who loves you more. We think you are the prettiest and sweetest baby we have ever seen!
