Goodbye September....bring on October!

Austin is doing really well, just so everyone knows. I always update about Miss Lyla but I am sure there are many who are interested in how Austin is doing. He is always happy to get to talk and play with us on Skype and Lyla loves talking to daddy!

Honestly, whoever invented Skype really did it right for us Military families! It is so nice that Lyla gets to talk to, "kiss" and "hug", and even play with Daddy while he is thousands of miles away. She wakes up in the morning and often will ask for him. Any time I take the computer out she runs and asks for Daddy! I know it sounds kind of sad, but to me it is actually nice that she will know who he is when he gets home.

And we are back to Lyla! haha She went to the doctor this week and is a little over 23 lbs and 32.5 inches tall! Very average and she is growing well. This kid eats like a HORSE! We honestly do not know where she fits it all in that little body. Thankful to have a happy and healthy little girl though!

I hate to wish my life away, but now that September is almost over, we are that much closer to all actually being together. Can't wait!

Happy 1/2 Birthday

Lyla is now (as of Sept. 6th) 18 months old! I can't believe we are closer to 2 than 1 now... our baby is growing up way too fast and is learning SO much.

I think I need to get on board with this "your baby can read" or something? I don't know, we spend most days at play dates and just having fun and sometimes I feel like I am somehow falling short on the educational side of things. Any suggestions are always welcome.

She is such a little ball of energy, as any one who knows her would agree, so we go to a play date or just out almost every single day.... otherwise we may both go crazy.

I am really enjoying this age of watching her learn and discover every little new thing. Sometimes I wish we had the memories of these days of our childhood that will long be forgotten. I just want to once remember what it was like to discover something so simple for the first time. It sure is fun to watch!
We don't get to go get her "stats" (height/weight) until later this month and I can't wait to see how she has changed in that way as well. The kid eats like a baby cow and I have no idea where it goes! ! !! ! !  I mean... have you seen her? She is tiny!
