{Maybe I'm just a vicious ass koala bear. Did you ever investigate that?}

A completly inappropriate title for this post but if you haven't seen Kat Williams "Killed by a Tiger" stand up, go You Tube it. Not safe for work people! I warned you!

We finally had the time and the weather to take a trip to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma this past weekend. It was a blazing 80 degrees and it felt wonderful. We lathered Courtney up in sunblock and headed on our way. A two hour drive for us. It was so worth it though. Enjoy!

{Weekend Recap via Droid}

I'm loving my new HTC Droid Incredible 2. I love the camera and the effects you can do with it. It's amazeballs. I've seen a few week recaps via iPhone photos on blogs and I decided to start doing a "Weekend Recap" via my wonderful Droid.

Learning to float in swim class Saturday morning.

Guess who ran 7 LAPS at the local high school track Saturday night? This girl right here. Do you know how far 7 laps is? A mile and 3/4. woop woop

We headed out early Sunday morning to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium.

On our way.

After the Zoo, a nap was in order.

And then a quick stop for a photo of "the two of us".

{You're welcome in advance.}

Sometimes, on a Friday afternoon, you need a little Jake Gyllenhaal eye candy to make it through the day.

Who is your celeb crush?

{All those hours researching the perfect crib}

and all that money spent, and we end up with this:

We purchased the plastic protectors for the crib sides but it wasn't long before Courtney learned to pull them off and began knawing like a beaver.

Luckily we found a great protector for the front sleigh portion of the crib that has worked great.

{My hands smell of toilet bowl cleaner}

Why don't I see more Facebook statuses such as this? Do people not clean their toilet bowls? Or do I have the cleanest toilet in Facebook friend history?

As for me, my days consist of work, wiping butts, kissing my little, rinsing dishes, cleaning toilet bowls and catching an episode of say Teen Mom or Big Brother.

What would your "real life" Facebook status say today?

Who is this big girl?

Watch as she rides down the slide all by herself and then does "tada" at the end. I love this kid.

{Little Fishie}

Courtney had her first swim lesson yesterday. The pool was indoor and so warm. The class started at 11:35 and by the end of it I think she was pretty worn out and ready for a nap. Otherwise, she is definitely on the road to being our water baby. I can't wait until next week. Oh yeah, and I'll be out looking for a one piece suit this week. Luckily my new friend Bonny also sported a two piece suit so I wasn't totally alone in the "who wears a bikini to a mommy and me swim class?"

{13 Months}

This post is a little late but I want to fill you all in on a few new things Courtney is up to.

1) She now signs "please". We are working on "thank you" but she gets that one confused with blowing a kiss. Her other signs are much clearer now "more", "all done", "milk", "hungry/eat/snack" and "please".

2) She says "juice". (as well as "Daisy"...did i mention that last month?)

3) No more crawling. Only walking. {bring on the bruised knees and shins}

4) She has been teething {enter cranky} since she is working on three more teeth.

5) We've cut back her afternoon bottles. Those are now sippys and she really doesn't drink much milk from them, Ugh. We cut out bottles all together for a few days but she's been sick for a day or so and wasn't drinking very many fluids so I gave her a "baba" before bed tonight and she sucked it down.

6) She started her new daycare last week. They said she did great and they wish they could clone her. :) But on the other hand, she's already sick and missed daycare today. :(

And without further ado, some recent photos of my 13 month old.

It's our Anniversary!

Five whole years! That time goes by so fast. Mike and I are High School sweethearts so actually we've been together a total of 11 years. Crazy huh? Let take a look back at our special day 5 years ago. (none of these are professional)
