hello instagram.

ok guys... oh the olympics!!!  
for real i'm addicted.  there is no way around it.  it's the the most inspiring, heart breaking, athletic, beautiful, emotional, nerve-wracking, fantastic thing!  i like sports and i occasionally watch them on tv (usually just the aggies) but the olympics has me wrapped around its little finger.  i will sacrifice sleep and even food for it... that's huge!  these athletes are just incredible.  not only physically but mentally.  i can't even believe the amount of self discipline, patience, and will power it must take to compete like they do.  amazing!  can i just start my life over and be a gymnast!?  maybe ;)
i can't even begin to watch all the events (i'm not even sure if half of them are televised) but if i could i so would!  love swimming, and volleyball, and of course gymnastics, and that synchronized diving is so fun too!  
can you imagine being the athletes parents!?  i can't.  i'm sure i would die of a heart attack.  i tear up every time they show the parents in the stands, and i cry every time someone medals... i know, such a girl.  and that jordyn weiber.  oh my heart just breaks for her.  can the camera man please give her a break, she is just a kid!!!  but what an awesome, classy, mature girl to be so disappointed but come out and freaking nail it in the team final.  that is the kind of role model i want my daughter to have.  pure class, she's amazing!  we love you jordyn!!
and we love the USA!!
ok, i've rambled on long enough about the olympics but seriously if you haven't been watching you are missing out!

how excited do you think i was when we showed up to work the day of opening ceremonies of the olympics and katie and i were matching!!  ly katie!
team USA!!
blowing kisses to dada...

16 months.

happy 16 months little love!
this has been a fun month.  isla is getting so much more expressive, and chatty, and hilarious... she keeps us laughing all day!  we feel so blessed.

16 month favorite's:
her silly laugh.
her big smile and squinty eyes when we say 'cheese'.
i love how she says dog.  dawwwwg with this southern drawl... it's so funny!
she has discovered the chalkboard and loves to draw.
isla loves saying no.  right now it's cute but i'm sure one day it won't be.
she absolutely cannot walk, she must run everywhere!  which has led to quite a few bloody lips, scratched up knees, and stubbed toes (not a favorite).
loves to read.  
isla definitely needs time to herself, she will just go sit and play with her toys or read her books.
isla loves the water.  
big hugs.
the huge gap between her 2 front teeth!  (10 teeth total= 6 top and 4 bottom)
isla carries anything with a handle around like it's a purse.
chase is her favorite game (she is starting to hide) and she laughs so hard when we catch her.
we have to find abby first thing every morning when isla wakes up.
she knows some of her animal sounds.  the cow, dog, monkey, and lion.
her dance moves are awesome!
she so cutely points to her toes, belly, eyes, nose, and mouth.
likes to throw things down just so she can say 'uh-oh'.
such a fun age and such a sweet girl!


we couldn't be more in love.  
happy 16 months isla girl!

instagram love.

a couple of weeks ago we went on a little family vacation with the bakers to the frio river.   
we had such a good time.  there was lots of eating, and swimming, and tubing, and eating, and throwing washers, and laughing, and did i say eating!!  
isla loved it!  she had so much fun getting to spend time with her cousins!

thank goodness my sis in law thinks ahead and brought fun toys... mama dropped the ball on that one isles!
cousin bayleigh!
cups are always a good choice...

little grin...
my little ginger...

talking about the fish...
love. (notice the crackers on her lips... isla ate everything and discovered her love for nutella!
washers with dada...
road trips make me tired (but only for 30 minutes)... haha!
playing with photo booth :)

who doesn't love a yellow bathing suit!?
watching the squirrels...
there is something about this picture that i just love.
as many times as i hear people say that isla looks just like me, i don't always see it.  
but when i look at this picture i see myself as a baby... kinda weird and wonderful all at the same time!
love that sweet, round face...
and that precious smile!
i love that kroger has balloons for entertainment while grocery shopping and so does isla...


hope you have a nice day!
happy birthday america!
love, the bakers
