Word to your Mama(s)

Isn't it the way... Being a second child, and noticing that there are significantly less pictures, fewer movies, and fewer entries in my baby book from my childhood. I always swore that I would give my second child as many of those special little tidbits for their memory boxes as I gave my first.

Fast forward 15 years. Did it happen? Nope. Is my second child going to hate me forever because I didn't live up to my promise? Mmmmm doubtful. Of course, I would have said, flat out, NO, she won't be upset, but she is turning into a bitty drama queen, so only time will tell...

So, here is an update about our little lady Stella! She was slow to crawl, and didn't figure out the motion until she was about 9.5 months. I was fine with it, but she was soooo frustrated! Luckily, *poof* one day she was crawling. She is slowly getting faster, but I am in no hurry to have an extremely mobile baby. It seems as though she was busy working on other things though. She wants to talk! She actually has 5 distinct words now!
Mama or Mum mum if she is crying= Mommy (Mindi)
Na Na or Nya Nya= Ima (Me)
Ma= more
HaHa = Harris
I Da= ice cream

I love the fact that ice cream was in her first 3. She is a smart girl- she knows what she wants! 


  1. yah stella! can't wait to see you guys. it feel like it's been forever.

  2. Oh my goodness. That red hair! Could she bet any cuter?!

  3. Awhh, thanks for sharing some Stella love! :)

  4. It's the fate of the younger child. My aunt, the youngest of five, complains that my grandmother had a shoe box full of photos of my mother, the eldest and a shoebox lid full of photos of her.

    I think my younger child's baby book is nearly empty, but she was a baby when I started my blog so she will have 5 more years of blog entries to read than her older brother, who was almost six when I started, so I guess it evens out.


You know I love to hear from you- thanks for leaving a comment!
