know its been quite along time since my last post & I know this for 2 reasons.. 1 b/c I know that date & 2 b/c Sam reminds me just about every day that its been months since I last posted, so lets play catch up...
Nothing out of the ordinary has been happening.. Halloween was a HUGE BUST!!!! . Rachel picked out her costume in early Sept & I might add that its very cute.. & thats all she talked out was wearing her witch costume & how she was going trick or treating.. well the day came & ohhh boy is all i have to say.. She was teething & would not put her costume at all.. NO WITCH COSTUME, NO TRICK OR TREATING!!!!! is what I heard about 50 times that day... at least I do have one pic of her the day we tried on her costume, well theres always next year..
October was baseball playoff season in my house.. I am a HUGE Yankee fan, no needless to say I was quite happy with the world series finish this year. Ive turned Rachel into a fan too.. heres the outfit Kristi sent her.. look how cute...
Rach is talking talking talking.... shes speaking in complete sentences now & some of the things that come out of her mouth are a riot.. I was constantly yelling at the tv during the baseball playoff's so one day Rachel said to me... "mommy, thats a bad word & dont say it again". my response was WOW, now I'm getting orders from my 2 year old..
Last night she told me that she wanted jello & I told her that I didnt have any so she looked at me & told me "call Bati, she has some in the fridge". She's got a mean temper,and is soooooooo not a girly girl, she would rather play with trucks & animals, shes got no use for dolls.. but she's really a sweet little girl.
I was off from work on election day so I dedcided to take Rachel for her christmas pics.. yep, another nitemare. We went to Target( where I always go for pics, they are cheap & take good shots) well.. Rachel wasnt having it, so after an attempted bribery that didnt work & about 30 minutes of trying to get 1 shot, we left... Needless to say Iwas aggravated so I called Kiddie Kandids to see if they have an available appt. Rachel was already dressed to I figured what the hell right? So we went & they did manage to get a few shots but I cost me like 200.00 dollars & I got hardly any pics.. well theres always next year right? UGH!!
We had a few Guattot get togethers this month, one with Patty & her son Antonio & one with Debbie & her Daughter Marissa. Next week we are planning a christmas guatot get together, there will be 4 families, so that should be nice..
Thanksgivng turned out well, we were at my house with about 15 people.. It was nice to spend the day with family & not be sick..
Today it is 2 years that I met Rachel for the first time.. OMG, she was sooooooooo tiny. I cant believe its been 2 years already... I look back at the pics from my trip & I remember like it was yesterday..Joanna & Myla were there when I arrived & I even got to meet Marla. The next day Kristi arrived to meet Elli (rachels best friend) We had so much fun with the girls.. Kristi is such a good friend & I miss her.. Here are a few pics from my trip..
The pics are arranged weird & I dont know why lol
The Yankeeeeeeeeeeeees WIN!!!!
