Anyhow, you may have realized that my girl has some pretty crazy hair. I try my best to tame it, but sometimes, her mane seems to have a mind of its own. While looking through all my pictures, I realized that, in addition to wild hair, my girl can make some of the funniest faces! So, I decided to put all the funny faces and wild hair pictures together on a video! I hope you enjoy it! I've watched it at least 10 times and laughed out loud each time!!
**I apologize in advance for the wacky musical editing at the end. I tried to fix it but eventually gave up! And, funny faces come first, wild hair is at the end!!

Happy girl after her nap!
Carrying around all the cups she can hold...I'm started to wonder about the girl and her need to have her hands full!
Keeping watch for lizards!

So when Daddy came home from work early (because he left at 5:30 am) and needed to take a little nap, AC and I headed to Super Target to give him some peace. We were just strolling along, eating the Target version of Honey Nut Cheerios, killing time, and minding our own business when, like destiny, we saw a pair of very fancy brown cowboy boots in a size 5!!! Woooohooooo!!! We temporarily "forgot" that Daddy has put us on a budget and plunked those suckers into our cart with a smile!
When we got home, she tried her boots on for Daddy. It was nothing short of hilarious watching her try to walk in them for the first time. I grabbed my video camera just a minute too late and missed those first few awkward yet hilarious seconds. Here is a video of what I could get with my camera of our sweet girl in her new boots. You'll notice that Daddy is trying to get her to walk to him, so he lures her over by putting her baby doll inside the famous box from yesterday. She took the bait (perhaps a little too enthusiastically) as you will see.
We hope you all had a great Friday! We would ask that you take a minute to pray for my Papaw Redmon. He suffered a mild heart attack yesterday. He is ok but could still use some prayers for renewed energy and less heartache. We love you all!

After a long day of box play, she had a sweet snuggle with Daddy before bed.
Here's what the box looked like when she went to bed...
Poor box. She spent a little time sitting on it as well. And it seems that she thinks this would be a nice comfy spot for her baby to sleep tonight. I just hope the real baby sleeps well tonight. I'm certain she has a fullfledged cold. We had several WWE matches today over me using the aspirator (snot sucker). It wasn't pretty. Happy Thursday everyone!

Instead of napping, we did laundry, played with a big cardboard box, ate mac-n-cheese and sweet potatoes, and snuggled during the grumpy spells. I don't have any pics today, but I DO have a video. I found a good one from another time in her past when she didn't like to take naps. This was taken almost 1 year ago. I will admit that a few tears escaped when I watched it. My baby girl is growing too fast. I miss her being so little bitty. Enjoy!

Step 2: Stand up in toy bucket.
(she wasn't injured, no worries).
Step 4: Mission Accomplished! Get inside the empty toy bucket!!!!
Step 5: Beg for Mama to get me out so I can try it all again!!
Happy Tuesday everyone! We love and miss you!

Gotta run to Target...we need some formula. We are in the process of introducing cow's milk to AC. Since she has been on soy since 10 weeks old, her little system isn't used to the proteins in cow's milk. After she turned 1 year old, the pediatrician wanted me to start out with 1 part cow's milk/3 parts soy and work my way up to 100% cows milk. This week we are 1/2 of each. So far so good. Hopefully soy formula will be a thing of the past in no time at all. Everyone say a little pray that my sick girl feels better tomorrow!!

On this 22nd of August, we started the morning (or the afternoon, actually) with Church. We were late, as usual. Daddy dropped AC off at the Toddler Room, and he and I joined the service at the end of the opening song. Daddy hates leaving AC in the Toddler Room, so I wasn't surprised when he went to check on her after 10 minutes and returned with a certain little girl in his arms. She's got him wrapped around her finger!
Happy 13 months, Precious Girl!
After church, AC decided to help Mommy clean using her little vacuum, that is until she discovered that it was much more fun to do this...
We hope you all had a great Sunday! We love and miss you!!

The rest of the afternoon was spent playing and napping.
Here is possibly my most favorite video yet. You'll see why. It was taken a few days ago (the same afternoon she "called" Daddy on her phone).

AC loves to be outside. So she strapped on her sun hat and we took a little walk (little being the key word...it was waaaaayyyyy too hot).
She reached into the refrigerator while I had it open and pulled this down. I turned my back for about 5 seconds and, when I turned around, this is what I found. The girl gets it from her mama, what can I say.
and a big purple purse!
After the chocolate, we had a quick change of clothes. A few minutes later, she had found my purse. Instead of pulling out all the contents like she usually does, she decided she would throw it over her shoulder just like Mom! Eventually she got frustrated because it wouldn't stay on her shoulder :(
So we watched the Wiggles and all was okay again. Tomorrow is Father/Daughter Day. I'll let you know how that goes :) Here is a video from last weekend of AC and Daddy watching her all-time favorite..."Old McDonald"! The girl's got moves and that, I'm certain, she gets from her daddy :) To see it, click on the red word 'video' above!

Aside from the ponytail, AC was borderline grouchy today. She is quite the sleeper except for the last week. She has had a rough time going to sleep and is waking up a lot. I'm not sure if she is getting more teeth. Both she and I have little bumps scattered around on our bodies. Mine itch like crazy, so I'm sure hers do too. About 10 days ago, she had the varicella (chicken pox) vaccine. I guess it is possible that we both have a very mild case of the chicken pox. This could make for a restless sleep, indeed.
We also played with an old cell phone today. It seems that she is watching me constantly and picking up on the tiniest of things. As you will see in the video below, it didn't take her long to learn just what that litte contraption is for.
(FYI about video: The TV is loud, sorry! The brown furry child is excited and you can hear her toenails clicking on the hardwood. We were having a bad hair day. The phone doesn't really work :))

More importantly, we recently celebrated another '1 year' mark. Our baby girl has been alive for one entire wonderful year. And while it has been magical watching her grow and discover the world this year, we miss you all terribly. So after much thought, I've decided to start this little blog. It's my way of letting you share in her daily life even though we are 1,100 miles away. We want you to be able to see her grow while we aren't there with you.
Just a few small things I think you should know:
1) I am REALLY new at this...so have patience with me as I learn to be a 'blogger'.
2) We would love for you to leave comments if you would like. However, you must have a Gmail email address. It's no big deal to create one. That's what I did...I don't use the email, except to do this blog. If you are interested, just go to http://www.google.com/. You will see "Gmail" on the top left. Click on it and you will be led through the process.
4) I will never use our names (unless it's an accident) for safety purposes...the daddy tells me there are lots of bad people out there :)
So, I hope you enjoy this. We don't always do new and exciting things, but we do have a lot of fun everyday! We love and miss you all!!
Fun with sisters (not sure why this picture is over there).
Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
