14 Months & A Fearless Girl!

WOWZA!!  I have a 14 month old baby toddler! I have a feeling this next year is going to fly by even faster than last year{I didn't think that was even possible!}. It has been a few months since I have done her monthly updates. I think i stopped at 10 or 11 months? Horrible, I know and I still have to put up her 11 & 12 month pictures!  Let's recap the last few months, shall we?

New with Jules:
  • Weight/length- 20 lbs and 28 inches 
  • Diapers-was still in size 3 until a couple weeks ago but when she started leaking through them at night we moved her up to size 4.
  • Clothes- still holding steady between 9-12 months! Sometimes things are still too big at 12 months and it seems like she swims in it!!
  • Walker!!!! She really got the hang of walking right after her birthday. I mean really, it was like overnight. She went from me holding her hands to help her stay steady to- Psshhh puleeze mom, don't hold my hand I got this!! Such a feisty one!
  • Toothless up until the last couple days! She has 4 teeth that are just about halfway out and I just noticed 2 more this morning getting ready to join the party. I just wish they would hurry up and stop torturing her already!!
  • Hellooo tantrums! Yes, my little angel now likes to throw a fit when things are not done to her liking. I try not to laugh while she is having a "moment" but I just can't help it sometimes!
  • Poop Problems-Jules had em... I know, I know it seems like this is all moms talk about sometimes; Are they pooping enough? Are they pooping too much? What about consistency? Yeah, definitely great dinner table coversation! Let's just say it was NOT fun for any of us but especially not for my sweet girl. It was kind of like being on a Poop-coaster, one extreme to the next. All has been well the last couple weeks and I pray it stays that way!
  • Discovered her mischievous explorer side.
  • Big talker with us but gets a bit shy when she is around others. She is learning animal sounds, her most favorite is of course-Woof woof! When the dogs bark so does she!  
  • Hugs & Kisses- this is one of my favorites, she will now just come up and give hugs and kisses freely. I LOVE it!

I'm sure I am forgetting something but Julianna is doing sooo much these days it can be hard to keep up!  Oh, I just remembered one more thing, she can also follow directions pretty well except when I am telling her not to do something!!

 & now some pictures....

I can't believe she knows how to do this!! No fear!!!

Also, I have some exciting news...I will be telling you all about that very soon! :)

A Festive Treat!

Last night I decided I would try my hand at making cake balls! I wanted to add some cute shamrock sprinkles but I didn't have any & didn't feel like making a special trip to the store so I had to improvise with what I had. The Hubby took some with him to work and they were a hit! 

If you are looking for some inspiration head on over to Bakerella. She is amazing!!! It looks like I have another hobby to add to my list!

Happy St. Patricks Day!!

What do you think?

I happened to stumble upon this clever  invention during my weekly Target trip and I was intrigued. I have seen/heard of other brands having similar products and I wanted to try them but they always seemed too expensive, but when I saw these  

I was super excited because they are only $9.99! So I of course had to buy a few different designs to try!

Here is my result 

My verdict: Easy to apply, affordable & unique designs. This will probably be my 'new' thing. Definitely worth the $$. Go ahead and give it a try! :)

Has anyone else tried these? Do you like them?

Julianna thinks so!!  She is such a silly girl! I never knew diapers could cause this much excitement and laughter!

Happy Tuesday! :)

Getting Crafty: Headband Holder

Hello bloggy world!!  I realize I have been kind of missing the last couple of weeks. I guess I haven't really been in the "mood" to blog much & Jules and I were also visiting my parents for the last week so we were busy catching up with family and friends!

Since becoming a mom I have felt the need to become more creative and put my crafty side to use!  Julianna has lots of hair accessories like  a lot, a lot, so displaying and keeping all of them can get a bit tricky. I have clippie and bow holders but I couldn't figure out what do with her headbands. Their previous home was in a basket which was alright but not exactly the best for keeping them organized and neat. As I was perusing one of the most addictive sites I know {Etsy} I found my inspiration! A headband holder!! So with some Googling  and a brief tutorial later I attempted my own amateur creation......

Tada!! A headband holder!

So easy: Fabric, tulle, ribbon and an empty formula can.

Not bad for only about 15 minutes of work! I have a few more to make so I can showcase the rest of her headbands in all their glory! :)
