Calla at 16 Months!

Calla has turned 16 months since I last updated! She continues to be the greatest thing ever in our lives. Our daycare provider was gone for a few days and so Calla spent some time with my parents. Chad and I were so bored...we need Calla to entertain us I guess! She was sure glad to be back home, but also had a blast playing with my mom's day care kids.
We continue to be outside as much as possible and Calla loves it...she even is ok with bugspray and sunscreen. Last week I took her to one of the public pools and she did ok with it. It has a zero depth entry and so she could walk in and out of the water and liked that. We also got a little pool for her at home and she played in that last Sunday and enjoyed that.
He vocabulary continues to grow by the day and so far everything she says are words we are ok with! On Friday she gave me a kiss for the first time...my heart just melted. I was laying on the floor playing with her, she came up to me and said "Ma!" and then she put her lips on mine and said "mwah!" It was so precious!!!!
Her dad is definitely her favorite person and she just lights up when he comes home after work! She loves to be held by him and snuggle up.
Thanks for checking in on us!

She is learning how to feed herself with a spoon!
She was so proud of herself that she got some on the spoon and into her mouth!!

Fishing with Daddy

Last Sunday night we went out to Yanney Heritage Park to go fishing. We still did not have full electricity and our air conditioning was not working so it was HOT!!! We went down by the lake and it was BEAUTIFUL! Calla and I sat and watched a bird play on the reeds and watched Daddy fish. He caught a bass and Calla checked it out a little bit, but really was not that interested! I was excited to catch an 11 inch fish in that lake!!! The pictures are all from our adventure fishing!
Tonight we went to Harmon Park and listened to some good old music. Chad felt like he was at a Lawrence Welk concert, but Calla enjoyed just being outside. We met up with a few friends and had a great evening...it didn't even rain one drop the whole time!!! That is almost unheard of here anymore!
Calla continues to be amazing every day. She now can tell you what a cow, horse, pig, sheep, and dog say. She says: "shoes, ball, cup, night night, go, Dada, Mama, Papa, dog..." the list goes on! She absolutely loves to be outside and ride in the bike cart! She sits still to let me paint her toe nails and fix her hair...I think we might have a girly girl!!!
Thanks for checking in on us!
