22 months!

Already! 2 months til she's 2! She's 22 months today! She proved to me that she is a big girl by letting me use the real shower head to rinse her hair (that is usually a scary event). Then she let me use the electric toothbrush! We've been practicing for..oh lets say..just a year! (Not practicing actual brushing, but the electric spinning part.) Ha!

We have a new addition to our family! Welcome: Balkey! This is sad indeed, but here's a pic of MC and her new best friend:

Balkey made an appearance at Jack's BD Party and then at Belk's. So most of you have already met him. He goes EVERYWHERE with us. I can't blame her. She doesn't suck her thumb, has no blanket or favorite toy/animal, and no pacifier. She named him the other day and she talks to him! When he rolls away he gets a stern 'no, no, no'. What is a mother to do? When Balkey doesn't fit in the stroller and he bounces down the aisle at Kroger? Embarrassing. He may have to magically disappear one night along with his gang. That's a good Mother's Day gift to myself!!

If I don't get around to posting over the weekend, have a wonderful Mother's Day. I love you, Mom! My best present this week was when my little girl got excited about her mink shoes! (pink shoes). Ahhhh...yes, I must be doing something right ;)
