15 Months of life

WOW! Lyla turned 15 months old this month and it is amazing what babies can learn in that time. We had her appointment today and she is a whopping 21.2 lbs and 31.5 inches tall! She will of course be taller than me by the time she is 12... haha. 

She is say many many words, which include but are not limited to:
Dada, Cody (one of the dogs), Beau (another dog), Stop, No, Yes, Duck, uhuh, Ball, that, Dog, she clucks like a chicken and "Woof"s like a dog! There are others, but I think that is enough to give you a good idea! 
She climbs, runs, kicks and throws a ball. Very active kiddo and eats like a horse!! 

Lyla and I are just trying to keep busy doing things with our play group and getting out of the house. So if anyone wants us to hang out, just let me know! We are missing Austin very badly. R-n-R is such a tease! We just want him home for good!!

Mid tour leave - June 2011

Wow, 15 days goes by SO fast! 

We had an amazing time with Austin being home visiting family, taking a trip to Panama City Beach, Florida, and just enjoying each other. Here is a photo journal of our R-n-R:

 Waiting on Daddy!
 At Shogun for his first dinner back home!
 Lyla enjoying some quality reading time with daddy.
 Headed to Panama City Beach, Florida!
 Lyla really loved the Gelatto at the Red Brick Pizza Oven place.

 Our little rock star!
 Playing in the pool at the hotel. We were super lucky and had a semi-private walkway to the pool!

 At Angelo's Steak Pit for dinner on our last night there.
 Proof that I still exist! haha
 At the beach! Lyla hated it, so we went the last morning just to take some pics.
 This is what happened every morning when we tried to take her to play at the beach, so our beach vacation was spent at the pool and shopping!
 Back in Woodstock, GA playing at the pool!
 Celebrating Father's Day early. Daddy for a new iPod touch!
 The dreaded day we had to take him back to the airport. We attempted to get a good family photo, this was the best one that came out!

At the airport saying good bye. Austin didn't have to fly out for a while, so we stuck around and had some frosties from Wendy's!

We had such a great time with Austin while he was here and we can't wait for him to get back! MISS YOU and LOVE YOU AUSTIN!!!!!!!
