Sunday morning breakfast with Skylar

Good morning everyone! Here I am sitting in my Bumbo chair on the dining room table ready to have breakfast with my Momma. Do you like my new Disney Princess jammies? Momma & Daddy got them fer me yesterday at Wal Mart.

Doesn't breakfast look super-yummy-delicious this morning? Momma made me granola and apples cereal. It's one of my most favortist things to eat! Yummm!

Big girls like me take real big bites like this off the spoon. MMmmmm this is SO good!

Food doesn't taste nearly as good unless you're wearing a bunch of it on your face like this.

Okay, I ate my cereal and had my bath. Now I am dressed and I gots my Dodie. I'm ready to go to Lowe's now, Momma!

Easter pics and a warm spring day outside

Skylar and Momma had our very own photo shoot one night and took pictures of her in eight different dresses while Daddy took a nap in her big girl bed. I guess he got bored watching us play dress up.

I decided on these first two pictures as her Easter pics and finally got all her cards mailed out this morning. Isn't my baby girl a beauty?

Skylar in her swing being pushed by our friend Roger.

She looks like she's concentrating doesn't she?

My little shnookems fell asleep in her swing!

Skylar absolutely LOVES being outdoors.

She was relaxing in her Bumbo chair...sittin' atop the dining room table while we ate the burgers and hot dogs and homemade potato salad and beans that I made for Tara's birthday dinner. Afterwards we ate the Heath Bar cheesecake that I made from scratch. I totally forgot to take a picture of it for my collection. Oh well.....guess I'll just have to make another one. =)

Here was my not-so-happy princess in her new Johnny Jumpa-Doodle thing. I know....that's not the name of it really but that's what I like to call it.

She sat in her space car in the backyard just off the deck watching Daddy pull weeds and plant vegetables in his garden.

Six-months-old on 3/7/09!

Watching t.v. from Momma's chair Friday night before we went away for the weekend.

In the car in the driveway getting ready to take off on our drive to Dave and Christine's house in Chickamauga for cousin Renata's baby shower. Daddy rigged up her dvd player on the back of the passenger seat and she watched The Backyardigans all the way there. Well, except for those brief moments when she was "resting her eyes."

We stopped at a truck stop just before getting on the interstate so the dogs could pee. Skylar stretched out in the back and got her panties changed. She kicked and talked the whole time with wide eyes...watching all the activity going on in the parking lot.

At the party sitting outside on Daddy's that little pouty face.

At Grammy & Peepaws house waiting to eat her breakfast of peaches and rice cereal. Yum!

After breakfast she played in her space car while Momma, Grammy and Peepaw looked on.

We decided to let Daddy go back to bed and we went with Grammy and Peepaw for a drive to Murphy, North Carolina to go to Wal Mart. Until they open the new Blairsville store this fall that's where Grammy has to go to do her Wal Mart shopping.

After we came back from North Carolina we picked up Daddy and we all went to Cobb's Mill for lunch. The name of the restaurant is actually Antonietta's now but we still refer to it by it's previous name. It's a family-run restaurant with great food. Momma forgot to bring Skylar a bottle so Grammy ordered her some mashed potatoes which she totally objected to. She kept spitting them out I'm guessing because of the texture. She continued to have a fit so after we ate our salads we got them to box up our lunches and we took them home so the princess could have her bottle.

When we got back home to our house Daddy hung up her new swing on the back porch before he had to go to work. She absolutely LOVES the swing and has spent many hours in it over the last three days. I can see we'll be spending a lot of time outside this summer!
