Children's Museum of Phoenix with Grandparents!

Grandma Jo and Grandpa Ted came to visit for a weekend of Liberty love. We all had the best time! We went to the Children's Museum for the first time and Liberty had a blast. We started in the "under 3" area - but then did almost every exhibit except the huge climber structure and the art studio (Liberty is a fanatic for crayons but I'm not prepared to hand her a paint brush just yet!). It was almost impossible to take a good picture because she was moving all around touching everything, so I took a lot of mini-videos for us to remember the outing by (even though they fail to capture the pure BLISS Liberty was experiencing). Later in the weekend we also had a great dinner at Liberty Market and Libs ran around the splashpad.

Yellow tutu dress

I took these pictures of Liberty in a dress we picked up at costco. She often pulls it out of her dresser drawer and wants to wear it. She is getting better about keeping headbands on. She still pulls out hairclips. I love having a little girl!

15 months old!

She Runs.
Plays hide and seek - she likes to be the seeker.
She has so many preference. You offer her milk, she shakes her head no, you offer her water she nods her head yes. You get a sippy cup and she shakes her head no, you pick up a different sippy cup with a straw, she shakes her head yes. And then there is the books she'd prefer to be reading...
She knows so many animal sounds and points out so many body parts.
Enjoys panting like a dog.
Best words used all the time: mama, dada, water, up, Elmo
Lots of words in the works: book, ball, cat, milk...
More signs: owie, please, bike, flying (for butterflys, bumblebees, etc)
Uses a plate and (sometimes) utensils now.
Calls all babies "mama" - ?? hahahaha
Likes doing puzzles and finding objects in pictures.
Loves a good dance party.
Into all things girl grooming, including brushing hair, chapstick, deodorant, jewelry, lotion, etc.
Stirs up a mean cup of tea.
Speaks her own gibberish. Especially on her phone (aka calculator).
Sleeps 8pm-8am, naps at 10am and 3pm for 1.5 hours each time.
26.7 pounds - (90%) -
34 inches - (99.8%) - the size of a 2 year old. She'd be the 3rd tallest out of 1,000 girls her age.

4th of July Weekend.

No HAPPY 4th of July!!! post here. We laid low due to Liberty's first major illness. For a kid whose never had an ear infection or a cold we couldn't treat at home...we spent July 2nd (Saturday) at the Pediatrician since she had a very high fever that we just couldn't break! It was a mystery that was eventually solved when a rash broke out all over her body on Sunday July 3rd. Roseola. High fever, low appetite, and just plain miserable. We skipped some swim lessons and watched a lot of Elmo's World. She was feeling good enough to venture out for a holiday cookout at Gma and Gpa's new house and boy oh boy were we glad we did!! We found out at that family cookout that my sister is pregnant and Charlie will be a big brother in January!!!!!!!!!! Liberty was 100% better by Tuesday so we finished out the week's swim lessons. Also included in the photo album are some videos of Liberty playing with jewelry (her new fave thing), speaking gibberish, and just being followed around by the paparazzi that is a stay-at-home mom. Some very random and un-interesting photos/video after the jump...
