Dearest Blog,

I miss you. I am still without a computer so you are still terribly neglected. We'll catch up soon!

Love, Tonja

Missing a computer...

This blog update is coming to you from my trusty iPhone! Our laptop is taking a break from life right now, which is just a little bit hard on me! So I'm going to keep this post short and give you an update on Ayla at 14 months!

-she can finally walk! (though she chooses not to 92% of the time.ugh!)
-she says "cheeeeese" every time she sees a camera. Girlfriend loves to see a camera!
-her favorite thing to do is hand us things and have them handed back to her.
-she shakes her head "no" when she doesn't like a situation.
-her favorite thing to do is read.
-we practice singing. I sing a note, she matches the pitch. Perfectly!
-baby girl is obsessed with all things chocolate!
-she has become amazingly good at communicating. With or without words.
-she likes to help pick things up and put them away. Unfortunately she likes it so much that she pulls everything out over and over so we can keep doing it...
-she is laughing most of the day. Really! She is such a happy baby.
-she is head-over-heels in love with her daddy.
-her hair is getting longer, darker, and thicker by the day! It's even starting to curl just slightly at the ends...

She makes me so happy everyday. I love getting to know this child that is just bursting at the seems with an amazing and electric personality. I sure am lucky to be her mama!

Oh blog.

I have been neglecting you.

So much has happened.  So many changes.  Unfortunately, I am not ready or willing to share just yet.  When I am ready, you dear blog, will know.

For now I will just post this video because I can't stop watching it.  It absolutely melts my heart.  Seriously.  When they get to the chorus and the girl gets really into it and is smiling at her daddy I cry.  Every.  Time.  And how cute is it when she yawns at the end?  Oh I can't wait until Ayla is a big girl.  :)  (I can, I am enjoying my Tiny baby more than I could ever say!)

And here are some recent pictures of the love of my life:

And one more song for you... Enjoy.  :)
