Christmas Pictures

Our sweet friend and photographer Jade Graves took some Christmas pictures of Remington. And I do believe they are some of my most favorite images of her ever. Merry Christmas from our baby!


Tulsa Time and Urgent Care

Tulsa Time and Urgent Care


We took a little trip to Tulsa this weekend. Mostly for some friends’ birthday party, but we also did a little shopping and had some fun.

We got there at lunchtime and had lunch at SmashBurger. Yum. Remi LOVED waving at everyone and she ate great. PS. I LOVE restaurants with healthy kid’s options like grilled chicken and applesauce.

We shopped around Whole Foods to get some keto treats I can’t get at home and then we went to Lauren and JJs for Ella and Ryan’s birthday. Remi loved playing with their toys!

She and Ella were adorable together and loved playing with the boxes almost as much as the toys.

After the party, she really needed to nap, so we drove back into Tulsa. She slept in the car with Gigi while I went into my favorite shop, POSH, and did some shopping. Then we headed to Rhema Bible Church for their Christmas lights. The weather was nice- just around 50 degrees, so not too cold to walk around.

She loved people watching and waved at all the people.

The lights really were magical. SO many lights, some set to music. Remi loved it.

She was mesmerized by the sparkly lights and music.

They had a huge tunnel with lights and it was SO fun!

Me and my girl enjoyed the day together!

After we left Rhema, we went to a fun local Pho shop for some Asian food and drove home. Remi was a trooper and did great all day.

But Sunday, she woke up with fever. Womp womp. Flu was going around daycare, so I immediately took her to urgent care. But her flu test was negative- just a bad cold virus. We did find some cough drop lollipops, which she liked while we waited on her prescription.

And while I hate for her to be sick, I do love the snuggles. I got to rock her to sleep, which is always a treat.

She’s doing ok, but isn’t herself still. I’m ready for my girl to feel better!

Miss Personality

Miss Personality

Oh this girl is quickly developing such a fun, happy, silly personality! She loves making us laugh. She loves dealing with other people. She is learning to have the time of her life.

Her personality shows when I tell her “No.”  No, Remi, don’t lick the water off the dishwasher. ha!  Then she gives me this look, like “What did you say to me?”

She LOVES dancing and looking in the mirror. Her closet was open and she saw her sunglasses and pointed, so we put them on. DIVA to the max!

My sweet girl. She is loving and tender (when she wants to be! ha!)

I was chasing her around the house trying to get her picture. She thought that was pretty fun!

We were at Pier 1 and she tried climbing in this chair, so I plopped her in it. It was comfy and soft and she LOVED it.

Before church- “Dat” LOTS of pointing and talking these days.

I went on a hike with the women’s ministry while she went to play with Grandpa and the family.

The weather was GORGEOUS. We had a big group and it was fun.

We hiked around a local lake and loved it.

While I hiked, Remi saw the “Moo cows” with Uncle Dwight.

And she played with Brad and Kelsey. She LOVES them.

Such a silly girl! We love her so much and adore watching her bloom.


14 Months Old

14 Months Old

What a fun month we’ve had!  Family time, Thanksgiving and the start of the Christmas season! And SO many laughs and so much fun!


Thank goodness, we haven’t been to the doctor (other than an ear tube follow up- which went well and had a GREAT report!), so at home measurements will do.  She’s 21.5 lbs and 30 or so inches.  She’s wearing size 4 diapers, 12-18m clothing mostly, and 2-3 shoes.

The big higlights this month:

DANCING! Oh man. She will dance on command or with music. She bounces at the knees, twirls around and moves her arms. It’s literally the BEST THING EVER.

WALKING. She’s doing great walking and we are working on holding hands and going where mommy wants us to go.


BLOWING KISSES. She’s not quite got the “blowing” part down, but she will bring her hand to her mouth and take it away upon saying “bye bye!”  It melts my heart at school when she blows me a kiss goodbye!

MOOING. Yes, she’s learned to moo.  We live in the country, ok?  She moos at the cows, at pictures of cows, at mention of cows, and at the horses across the street (close enough, ha!)

TEETH.  She got a new front tooth (finally) and we are so close on the molars. So now 4 on top and 4 on bottom.


TALKING.  Much more communication all the time. Her newest obsession is pointing and saying “Dat!” to let you know what she wants.

UNDERSTANDING. She’s getting GREAT at listening to commands and understanding us. Sit on your bottom, find your cup, take this to daddy, say cheese, put that down (but only when she isn’t being naughty!) – lots of listening.

PLAYING.  She is LOVING carrying lovey around, although we are trying to keep it in the bedroom/for nap and car time. She’s interacting with toys in a whole new way lately. She is dropping balls into her ball drop toy (instead of watching us drop them and grabbing the balls), she is trying to put shapes into their correct spot, fitting things together – so many new skills!  Her favorite toys are musical ones- the guitar is a big hit. She’s also loving playing outside.

EATING. Still eats amazing, and it eating more and more of our (seasoned, flavored) food. She loves Asian food and loved the black bean salsa at Rolandos! She still seems to love bananas and berries the best – but she eats just about everything. Most mornings, she eats a combo of cottage cheese, bananas, a muffin or a cereal bar. Lunch is at school – hot dogs, fish sticks, steak fingers, grilled cheese.  Dinners, she does amazing with fruits, veggies and meat. As long as it isn’t too crunchy or too chewy, she’s eating it.

SLEEPING.  Still sleeping great.  A few shorter naps this month when our schedule was off, but otherwise great.  She cries out in her sleep a little, but we think it’s teething related and she doesn’t typically need us, she just goes right back to sleep.

We had a great month and can’t wait for Christmas!
