Skylar update

I really do need to get back into the habit of blogging more often. I promised my dear friend Victoria that I would make a conscious effort to try and post more often but sometimes I just never get around to it because of cooking, or laundry or taking care of the baby.

Speaking of the baby....Skylar will be one year old a week from today. I just can't believe that it has been almost a year since God blessed us with that sweet angel. Now that she is a "BIG GIRL" (you know....being almost one and all!) her little personality is truly starting to emerge. A couple of days ago she woke up on the wrong side of the crib. Even though she had slept for about ten hours she was just cranky and miserable. When I was getting her dressed she kept pushing me away. She just did not want to be messed with. After she had her Very Berry fruit cup and a NutriGrain bar she was a little ball of sunshine so we went and did our grocery shopping. This child absolutely LOVES to go shopping. She gets lots of attention from strangers because she is so dern cute but sometimes it gets really annoying. Especially when that person wants to stand there in the store and chat. Ugh!

At almost a year old Skylar has no teeth. Nope...not a one. Not even a tiny white glimmer of one just under the surface. She does have a little more hair though. Not much, but enough to put a little clip in. She just started crawling two weeks ago. It took her strong desire to slobber all over her daddy's cell phone to move her big juicy butt across the floor to get it when he laid it down six feet in front of her. She crawled to it, chewed on it for a minute and now a couple of the keys won't work. Sweet baby slobber must act as a cement or something. Who knows. She is in her walker most of the time lately. She runs through the living room, around the dining room table and into the kitchen...trying desperately to run down a dog or a cat. The day before yesterday she actually did pin one of our cats between her walker and the sliding glass door. That child is hell on wheels. I have to wear shoes when I'm in the kitchen making dinner because if not she bangs into my heels or runs up over my toes.

I have an appointment on Labor Day (her birthday) to get her one-year portraits done at Sears so I'll be sending those out to everyone. I just wonder if I should wait and send them out at Christmas with the Christmas cards. It would save money I suppose. I just get anxious though when I get really great pictures of her. I'm just excited to share them.

Well, I think I will close this for now. I am upstairs and the baby is downstairs sleeping in her crib. I think I need to check on her. Nitey nite.

Eating a french-fry at the Gwinnett Braves game on August 22nd.

Daddy was helping her clap for the team.

Our back porch. It looks nice and big when it's clean. Daddy and Pootie were both swinging. I didn't have to push him though =O)

Crawling to get to her Daddy's nasty funky "taking out the trash" shoes.

This pic is a cute one. She was moving so it came out a little blurry.

Hanging out with Miss Tina again.

Sweetie Pie and Smokie Joe absolutely love the new washer and dryer. Before I grabbed the camera Sweetie Pie was actually in the dryer.

Sitting on Momma's desk - looking at pictures of herself on the computer. Aunt Lovely, notice how her sock is half-hanging off her foot!

She had such a good time in her new ball pit/pool

See, she has enough hair to finally hold a clippie!
