Cool Tricks!

My baby is growing up! Julianna can stand up without any help!! So it may only be for 35-45 seconds (a long time in babyland) at a time but STANDING nonetheless! Now that she can stand on her own , I guess that means the taking steps part isn't too far away and I hear when that comes I am in a whole lot of trouble!!

First Step:Admitting You Have a Problem

Hi, my name is Ashley and I am a shoeaholic. My shoes of choice? Baby shoes. I can't get enough of them. My love for tiny shoes is a bit ridiculous but I just can't help myself! They call my name and when I start to picture Julianna's adorable little chubby feet in them, you can consider it mine hers.& Etsy? I can't even tell you my obsession with Etsy. That place is handmade baby shoe heaven! I am waiting for a pair of  leopard print booties as we speak....delaying/not helping my recovery, i know! 

My top 2 addictions for baby: (so far)

What about you? What's your addiction?

A First: Disneyland!!!!

Two weeks ago Julianna had her first Disneyland experience! We have been waiting to take her because it has been sooo hot & who wants to go to Disneyland when it's a 100 degrees? Not me! So we picked a day when it was a little cooler, dressed in our Disney attire and headed off for some fun! I know Jules doesn't understand the concept of Disneyland at this age but I had fun watching her experience something new. I know she will get more & more excited with every visit and the older she gets.

I was a little worried she would get scared or nervous going on the rides but to my surprise and relief she did great!
The rides she has been on so far:
  • Dumbo
  • Snow White
  • Pinoccio
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Buzz Lightyear
  • Nemo Submarine Voyage
  • It's a Small World
  • King Arthur Carrousel
  • Mickey's Ferris Wheel
  • Jungle Cruise
If Julianna could talk, I think she would say Dumbo, Nemo and the Jungle Cruise were her favorite!
Since her first trip two weeks ago Jules has been to Disneyland and California Adventure two more times... Sooo glad we renewed our season passes!

8 Months!!

Julianna is 8 months old!! Wow, this time thing is seriously out of control! I can't believe it is October already! Jules is definitely keeping me on my toes. This little girl is a ridiculously fast crawler and a is a little Houdini on top of that! She HATES being confined, so keeping her occupied in her exersaucer or jumper is not an easy task. If someone isn't right there watching her, she WILL climb out! The only places I can put her in without her escaping  ( for now) is her crib or pack n play, and I'm sure it is only a matter of time before she figures out how to climb out of those as well! Eeek!

This is what's new with Jules:
  • in size 2/3 diapers
  • still wears 6 month clothing
  • she is loving learning how to feed herself
  • waves & will say "buh-buh" if she is in the mood.
  • just started to learn how to make the kissing face and noise, when I say kisses. Sooo cute!
  • NO teeth yet!!
  • loves to "dance" 
  • she gets SUPER excited when I sing the Wonder Pets theme song.

Here are her 8 month pictures. Jules went from  really happy to really mad to slightly mad to happy to really happy again. Full circle of emotions in a matter of 12 minutes!!
