23 Months Old

Parker turned 23 months old on the 13th (yup, I'm behind on blogging.  Shocker.)  Things have been such a whirlwind lately that I don't remember much....let's see:

My father-in-law took this picture and I'm so grateful!  My camera is always too slow to capture the "real" Parker!  He's all smiles!
1.  Parker started day care.  I blogged about it here.  He does great, although he had a solid week where everytime I tried to drop him off he clung to me and cried.  This happened a day after a little boy bit him twice in one day (although I was told that my little champ didn't cry and gave the boy a hug afterwards!  What a sweetheart my little boy is!)  However, the best part about day care is picking him up.  He always runs to me with the biggest grin and a warm hug.  It completely melts my heart since he is such a daddy's boy.  I'm glad he misses me!

2.  He began saying, "I love you".  It sounds like "ah boo", and I love it!  Granted, Greg or I have to say it first, so the day that he says it first will probably bring me to tears!

3.  His vocabulary is expanding!  He will readily try to repeat words that you ask him to repeat.  He is also pretty great at repeating back the alphabet!

Too cute for words!

I am 23 months old today!  I weigh 26 pounds!

This is the expression he made when I said, "Smile for the camera!"

30th Birthday Mourning

This past weekend I was so excited to attend one of my friends 30th birthday mournings.  Say what?  I kid you not...this was her invitation.

She obviously didn't feel the way I did when I turned 30!  Luckily, she decided to surround herself with friends to help her bring in the new decade of her life.  Remember the pinterest inspriation I had for her gift?  Here's my version of it!

This is about as crafty as I get!  Unfortunately if you picked it up by the handles it dumped over!

The party was a dinner held at the historic Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City.  I had never been there before but it was gorgeous!  The hotel has been around since Oklahoma became a state and it under went an extensive renovation several years ago.

Back to the party.  Every one was instructed to wear black.  Here's a  pic of Greg and I before we left.
Picture Perfect!

I was so excited to see so many of my favorite friends!  Most of which I hadn't in a few years, when I took these pictures.

With the Birthday Girl!!
One of my BFF's (and Parker's God Mother!)  She lives in Wichita, KS and I don't get to see her very often :(

My Byng-a-lings!  They all went to school at Byng...but that was a looong time ago so I should really quit calling them that!

Photo Opp!

The whole group

It was a great evening full of food, laughter, catching-up, and photo taking.  I have to give an extra big THANK YOU shout out to my in-laws who let us stay with them and they baby-sat Parker so Greg and I could have a night out on the town.  It was the first time any one had ever put him to bed (his Great Aunt Jackie did one time, but that was at our house, so this was a little different).  He wasn't feeling too great that day, and considering those circumstances he did awesome (from what I'm told!)  It had been years since the majority of our "group" had gotten together and we are hoping to plan a get-together this summer.  I hope it happens!

Oh, How Pinteresting!!

It's Wednesday!  I'm linking up for this:" target="_blank">" />

A brand new knit dress that I only wore twice got a horrible stain on it that I can't get out!  Luckily, now I can do this to it, so I don't feel too bad.

How genius is this?

One of these days I'm going to make one of these for my office!

I posted something similar last week...but these are perfect for St. Patty's Day!

I was so happy that I got to attend the 30th birthday of one of my favorite people this past weekend.  This was my inspiration for her gift:

Til next time....Happy Pinning, Ya'll!
