Summer Fun!!

What can be better than a day spent at Lake Michigan?! We have been having a great summer watching our little Holly grow into a little toddler. She has become much more chatty!! On this particular day we heard a lot of, "Ha-hee Wa-Wa Momma," (translated to "I want to swim Mommy!!)
Fun in the Sun!!
Happy Holly!!

Funny Girl

Holly is talking more and more each day. It is so much fun to have her try new words and come up with them on her own. She has learned to say "I Love You" and also calls her Aunt Vicky, "At-Dee Dee". Oh, and I can't forget that she learned to say, "No, no, no Momma!!"

Fun times in Syracuse

Holly and I flew out to Syracuse to spend a long weekend with Aunt Vicky. We had a blast!! Vicky bought Holly a toy box full of new toys and we relaxed and played most of the visit. We did do a little shopping, too! Holly got an SU cheerleader dress and Mommy brought home a bunch of new SU gear. On our last day we took Holly to the zoo for the first time. She loved it. Her little pointer finger was worn out by the end of the day. As expected she liked the "George's" best (aka Monkey's). Uncle Mike got Holly a few new treasures from the zoo gift shop. We ended the day by celebrating Vicky's Birthday with yummy NY pizza. We had a really wonderful visit and were so sad to leave...but we were headed back to Michigan to see Da-Da.

Our little Holly is such a good eater. She is great about trying new foods, it doesn't always stay in her mouth, but she at least trys it!! She loves pasta and pizza, peas, cottge cheese, oranges and M&M's. She also likes things that I never thought she would...salmon, scallops, and she just can't get enough when it comes to hummus!!

Silly Girl..

How much fun can a little girl have with her Monkey and Mommy's glove?! This morning she was dancing around, making silly faces, and wearing just one of my gloves. She is becoming quite the little entertainer once she gets warmed up!! These days she is enjoying playing with her dolls and stuffed animals. She loves to rock her babies and burp them. Holly still loves her books and is very interested in phones...I wonder why?!?!

Holly's First Sleep Over

For Bob's birthday weekend we decided to head to Chicago and leave Holly with her Grandparents. It took me a few weeks to prepare myself to leave her for a whole weekend!! Well, I am happy to say a good time was had by all!! Bob and I were able to get in some fun in the Windy City. We shopped a lot and had a few great meals. Holly had a great time, too. She had a dance party with her Grandpa and wore him out!! She went out to lunch and tried some new foods. It was great for her to spend some time bonding with her Grandma and Grandpa.

All smiles again at the Lawrence house...

I am so happy to say that everyone at our house is in tip- top health again!! We had a rough start to the new year. We were all sick with the stomach flu and then a cold, then Holly had the bump that turned into a small abscess. With our first trip to the ER behind us and Holly's first stomach bug over... I can safely say we got truly initiated into parenthood these past few weeks.
Holly will be turning 17 months old this month. She is so much fun! She loves her babies and stuffed animals. She loves to feed them. She walks around all day with her spoon trying to feed anything with a mouth!! Poor Scooter is always running from Holly and her little pink spoon that she sticks in his snout. Charlie on the other hand can't get enough of her. Everyday he becomes more her dog than the family dog. They are so cute together, it is not "Mary had a Little Lamb" at our house, it is more like "Holly had a Little Puggle...."
Bob is settling into his new job and is thriving. It was an easy transition and I am thrilled that he is happy there after having been with Medtronic for so long. As for me, I am still on cloud 9 having my old job back!! It has been 6 months and I am still so grateful to be back working with Mike and a great team of docs. I feel like myself again, and that self is loving life.
We are heading to Chicago the last weekend of the month to celebrate Bob' s birthday. Holly will be having her first overnight with her Grandma and Grandpa. I am sad to have to leave her, but I know she is going to have so much fun with Bob's Mom. It has been a very cold winter here in Michigan and I am hoping it warms up soon. Counting the days till spring...

Christmas Morning 2008

Christmas morning was so fun!! Holly's eyes lit up when she saw that Santa had come. It was love at first sight with Mr. Giraffe. Poppy and Grandma Coulter came over in the morning to watch Holly open her presents. Even though Holly, Poppy and I were sick we had a wonderful Christmas. Next year when Holly can talk we know that she will ask Santa to bring her Aunt Vicky!!

We woke up on the morning of Christmas Eve to our sweet little Holly having the stomach flu! We were 48 hours shy of her turning 16 months old and never having been sick. She was still her playful self, but it was still so hard for me to see her not feeling well. By late afternoon she appeared to being to doing great! We packed up and headed across town to celebrate Christmas with my in-laws. Holly was having so much fun playing with her new kitchen and her pots and pans!! We had a wonderful dinner and a great night.

A day at the park

We took Holly to the park to enjoy one last day of nice weather before we headed back to snowy, cold Michigan. She loves to explore and studies everything. We had so much fun. It is just amazing to watch her personality develop more and more everyday. She already loves an adventure. She also loves the camera and is quite the little flirt!! Everything she does is lovely.....

A Love that takes my breathe away....My sweet little Holly

Fun in the sun!

Day 2 at the beach and Holly really was having fun playing in the sand. My days of just laying out in the sun will have to be put on hold for a while

I have been trying to get her to wear a bonnet for so long and she always pulls them off. She spotted this baseball cap at the beach store and had to have it!! Must be beacuse it says, "NEW YORK". That's my girl!!!

Still showing off her hat!
