The Little Lady

Bitty is getting so big and is changing what appears to be daily. She turned 15 months on Sunday, and her personality is blooming! She is into literally everything. It seems like all we do is chase after her and say, No! and Get out of that _________!
Her vocabulary is really growing. Not only is she repeating the things we coax her into saying, but she has also mastered some words are using them at the appropriate times. She calls the dogs (and all other dogs...) by their names, and she is starting to point to my body parts, but not her own yet. The other day she jabbed me in the eyeball. Thanks. Those tears were from the stinging, not the pride. She has even squeaked out an "Oooo Igh!" (Roll Tide!) and, more importantly, "A-mehn".
These pictures are from Sunday. Although it looks like it, she was NOT waving at me, but at the dogs, "Shay-dy and Dodah" ... She LOVES them! The bottom picture was taken first. Notice how much ankle you see. Now look at the top picture. So, even though she's getting big, she's still so Bitty! This is a 12 month outfit. Most 12 month pants won't stay up on her!

The Confession

It has been 25 days since my last post. Forgive me for I have not had much to post, yet have tons to post. Odd, I know. This month has been SO busy.

My AMAZING intern is officially done. I am SO sad. It's like losing a roommate that you really, really like (and who does all of your chores for you!). I have four more weeks of school, a (literal) tiny break, and then I will start tutoring this Summer for the AHSGE for Bryant kids. The principal drama at school is enough to make anyone's head spin, but it's entirely too much to put on here. Just know that it is major, and that Bryant High School's students, teachers, and administrators (both current and future) need your prayers.

Other than the whirlwind we call Bitty, home has been it's usual busy. Michael is finishing up his last semester at Shelton. He is in there typing up his last research paper as I type this. Last Sunday he participated in Honor's Day (I forgot the camera :( ) and received an award for his Phi Theta Kappa Honors Fraternity membership. He's pretty smart. He will graduate in two weeks, and I will NOT forget the camera. :)
