14 Months and Baby Jesus

Today is yet another day to celebrate in our house...
It's B's 14th month birthday and Grammy's 57th birthday too! :)
Happy birthday to two of the most important girls in my life!!

It's hard to believe that this time last year, we were watching B learn to use her little voice...


She was so tiny and fragile... Now, she's a full-blown toddler!
Her monthly photo "session" lasted a grand total of  5 seconds this month...
B is just such a wiggle-tail! :)


1-2-3-4-5...

"Okay, shoot's over... I'm out of here!"

Like most 14 month-olds, B just isn't "into" sitting in one place for very long.
Unless, of course, we have Dora or Tinker-Bell on the television...

Here is our little mover in-action!

She has picked up on the walking skills very quickly... No doubt, to make up for lost time!
{yes, our Christmas tree was placed on a table... I didn't want to tempt our little explorer}
 Her newest obsessions are all about babies... She loves human babies, animal babies, and of course-- Baby Jesus. As a result of her love for him, he is frequently kidnapped from his manger.
She has her very own nativity set (x2), but of course, that is not good enough for this girl... She wants the one she knows she's not supposed to have! The one that is purposely placed out of her reach...
Yes, for that Baby Jesus, she will scale small buildings and climb furniture to get to him.
The child-friendly Baby Jesus conveniently gets thrown to the side...



Another "fun" (i.e. frustrating) talent that our B has picked up is her ability to hide things. We call her "the Bulldozer" for many reasons, but mostly because she thoroughly enjoys plowing all of her toys under the TV stand. Her tea set, her puzzles, her books, contents of her picnic basket, and miscellaneous other toys can always been conveniently found there after she is tired of playing with them.

Oh, my busy little B... 
I don't know what my life would look like without you! I'd probably get my hair cut regularly and be able to put away my vacuum for more than a day... But I wouldn't trade you for the entire world! :) You are such a blessing to me and Daddy!

Now, back to picking up toys and cracker crumbs...
