General Update

So sorry it's again taken me a week to update!  Just another very busy week -- so glad to be off for a few days!

What's Morgan been up to?  Well, she's walking everywhere -- we can't keep up with her.  It's so funny seeing my little baby walk.  Where did the year go? 

Speaking of that, many people have asked if we're having a party for Mo's birthday.  I'm weird -- I think a little differently from most mamas.  I don't plan to throw Morgan a party until she's big enough to enjoy it and the people there.  I'm thinking 3-ish, 4-ish, or whenever that may be.  In the meantime, we'll just have a small "Happy Birthday" moment with a cake for her to smash.  Who's on the guest list?  Well, her mama and daddy.  And anyone else who would find joy in seeing a baby get cake everywhere and then take a bath and then take a nap (she's usually sleepy after a bath).  I'll be sure to share the few minutes of fun with everyone by posting pics! :)

In other news, since Morgan is a little bigger, I've allowed something that I was very afraid of when she was a little baby -- co-sleeping! For about a week or so, I've let Morgan sleep with us.  And for no particular reason. I just thought it would be fun and cozy for her to sleep with  Danny and me -- and I was right!  Even though she COMPLETELY takes over the bed (she's a wild sleeper), WE LOVE IT!  I think we're breeding a monster, though, because today she refused to nap in her own bed. Uh-oh!

Tidbits:
  • Morgan got Student of the Month in her class!  Haha!  Is that not the funniest thing?  They even gave her a little certificate.  I'll have to put it up somewhere.
  • She started mouthing this new beat/song -- not sure what it is yet.  She really likes music.  There has even been a time when I've walked in her class and they were watching some kind of music show...she was the only kid paying attention and clapping!  I thought that was hilarious!
  • Um...I had to call the Poison Control Center today.  Somebody decided they wanted to taste Desitin during their diaper change.  Everything was okay -- especially since she only got a couple of licks in.  And I would have totally not worried about that until I saw on the Desitin container to call Poison Control "immediately" if digested.  Apparently the Poison Control Center gets that call all the time because I was very routinely told that she'd be fine...and I should only get concerned if she eats about 2 oz. of the stuff.  I was thinking "That's a lot of Desitin!  Who eats 2 ounces of Desitin?!"  But after Googling the situation (I'm rarely satisfied with one answer), I discovered that many kids have eaten diaper rash cream (apparently it tastes good); and those "2 oz" incidents are when mom walks in the room to an open tub/container of Desitin and a happy, full baby.  Haha!  So, yeah, had to document my first (and last, hopefully) call to Poison Control!
Anyway, tomorrow is Thanksgiving!  We're going to Gadsden to Danny's Granny.  I'm making green bean casserole in the morning to take with us.  I hope to get out my Christmas decorations tonight -- and maybe even start on the tree.  We'll see.  In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Oh, a few pics, of course!  I haven't been taking a lot of pics the past few weeks, so this is just us playing around one night before bed.

She has this thing now where she LOVES loads of laundry.  So if I don't feel like folding laundry, I give them to her and she has an absolute ball with them.  She takes them out and puts them back in.  Keeps her entertained for a while, too!








Walking so casually across the room. Haha!


Teeth!


Blowing kisses.




Eating her shoe straps. 
I have to hide her shoes from her because she loves doing this so much.
