Lennox’s Latest Obsession

This weeks Toddle Along Tuesday’s topic is Obsessions. When thinking of this, a lot of different things came to mind. Maybe the fact that she loves Doc McStuffin’s but calls her Dr. Muffins {hello, cute!}. She sings the “I feel better, so much better” {now you can have that in your head too} every time she gets her diaper changed. Or the fact that she talks to the tv when watching Daniel Tiger {from Daniel Tigers Neighborhood} and tells him to BE CAREFUL, BE CAREFUL, when he is carrying a cake for his birthday party.

But when I think about one thing that she really loves, one thing she is really obsessed with, it would have to be SHOES. Now, I’m thinking to myself, this isn’t going to be good…Shoes are an expensive obsession! I will have to limit the number of shoes I buy her… yeah right 😉

One of her favorite shoes would have to be her cowboy boots aka “Cowboys”.

The other pair of shoes she seems to really like are her silver sparkle tom-ish shoes!

Does anyone else have a kiddo who is obsessed with shoes?

Our Amazing Day Five Years Ago

For Kyle & I, this weekend marks our 5th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe that it’s already been 5 years! So much has happened and our lives are pretty different from they were back on our wedding day! We have traveled, bought a house and of course grew our family from two to three! I haven’t shared many wedding pictures on here before, so i thought now would be a good time! Unfortunately, our professional photographer didn’t give us our images on a CD – we have one HUGE photo album though! But my uncle did take some pictures so I’ll share those! Warning.. There are a lot of photos below!

First, the details: We got married on October 20th at 5:30 at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, TX. There was a big to-do around our venue. We were suppose to have it somewhere else and about 2.5 months before the wedding, we found out our wedding planner had left the company {without telling us}, the construction wasn’t going to be done and the room for our wedding would not be available. AWESOME. After many aggravated phone calls, we were able to make a deal to move our wedding to a different country club within the same company. We could keep the same pricing and move to any available club. My family had already made their flight plans, so we couldn’t change the date. Thankfully, this amazing {and much nicer} country club was available – it ended up working out for the best…way better actually.

Rather than my uncle taking pictures of me coming down the aisle, since he knew the photographer would be doing that, he took pictures of Kyle’s reaction – I love that idea 🙂

I love how happy we look in this picture, Kyle is making his speech to our family and friends. I have no idea what he said… to tell you the truth… does anyone else remember?

My sisters! I just love this picture. On the left is my actual sister, Kim. Then in the middle is Ana. She is just like a sister, she is an exchange student we had live with us for a year when I was 9-10 years old. She lives in Costa Rica. It was so nice of her to come to the wedding! And then to the right is my sister-in-law Mandy!

Mothers of the Bride & Groom!

Oh, there was lots of funny dancing — we had quite the party.. I guess this is what happens when you have an open bar and some crazy friends of the groom who have known each other FOR.EVER!

Then it was time for the evening to end {it really goes by WAY TO FAST!} It was one of the best days of my life, of course the day Lennox was born is the best or at least a tie!

And this is where we headed out only a short 8 hours later:

Couples Swept Away Beach Resort in Jamaica

It was AMAZING — Couples Swept Away in Jamaica. If you ever want to go to a 5 star, all-inclusive resort… go here. Amazing service, amazing amenities  AMAZING food… just perfect and small, intimate, no kids!

Our ring exchange vows: I give you this ring as a symbol of my love. As it encircles your finger, may it remind you always that you are surrounded by my enduring love.

Funny Habits/Quirks of a Toddler {Toddle Along Tuesday}

I’m excited to be co-hosting this weeks Toddle Along Tuesday with Melissa over at Growing Up Geeky. If you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should, it’s pretty much, AWESOME.. and she has new cuddly newborn, so that’s a bonus!

This weeks topic is Funny Habits/Quirks your little one has. Lennox is quite the character most of the time, so I have some funny habits to share!

Brushing Teeth: When we brush our teeth, the only way I actually can get her teeth decently brushed is if we are upside down.. yes, we have to hold her upside in the air, and then brush her teeth — how random. One of her baby dolls says, “Sometimes I like to go upside down…” Maybe that is where this has come from? I have no idea, but all I know is brushing teeth is no easy feat in this house!

Morning/After Nap Habit: Lennox sleeps with a lot of “friends” in her crib. We have blankets, pillow, stuffed animals, books you name it, we have it! It just keeps accumulating and we can’t get away with slowly taking things away, she ALWAYS notices. So when she wakes up in the morning or after a nap, we have to carry EVERYTHING {except the books} downstairs with us, including her! She never touches any of them once they are down here. They just sit in a pile, but if we don’t bring them down, she is hysterical…so, down they come.

Bedtime Routine: Other than the upside down teeth brushing, she has started this funny habit of wanting to watch old-time mickey mouse. Ok that’s not too weird or unusual, but what is.. is that she wants to sit in her diaper, with an old baby sun hat {that no longer fits, and she barely wore}, next to daddy, with a kitchen dish towel on his lap and a hand towel on her lap, acting as blankets. It’s somewhat random!

So what funny or quirky habits does your little one have?


This week’s Toddle Along Tuesday topic is funny/quirky baby or toddler habits! Does your little one do something that constantly cracks you up or makes you shake your head? There are no rules here, except that you link up a relevant post (old or new) rather than your whole blog.
