15 months

Dulany turned 15 months yesterday. She has grown a TON!! now that we have baby Ayla around its crazy to compare the two (in size that is) and can't believe she used to be that little (actually, smaller).
Dulany now can say prayers. it is the cutest thing ever. We'll say our nightly prayers before bed or at the dinner table and she'll cross her arms on her own (well, she learned on her own, we've never really "forced" her to fold her arms during prayer).she is very observant! and catches on quickly

she's beginning to run everywhere.this is her in action over to great grandma/grandpa roberts house (across the driveway).

she's got 6 teeth and 1 trying to break through (4 on top).
her favorite words - appol (still) meow, uh oh, grandpa, dadda, "sh sh" with a finger up her nose instead of over her mouth, she's starting to say "no" a lot... great!.. along with some others.
she now knows how to do the 5 little monkies song by doing hand motions.
She tries to open the doors.
she loves to do fishy lips!

honestly, she's doing a WHOLE lotta stuff and i just can't think of it all...
but she does get jealous when grandma is holding baby Ayla. I got a few pictures of it. She does pretty well around her although she wants to touch her all the time which we are trying to get "be soft" down with her. she does pretty good but occasionally she wants to poke Ayla's face. Hopefully this will be good practice when we have another baby in the future .. not anytime soon that is. This whole week i kept saying to myself, i don't know how the parents do it with two kids under two.... its hard! (i watched both of them this morning while Kaylee was in an appt. and it was a little difficult!haha).
Anywho. here are some more pictures of ayla rose:

Corn on the Cob

there is nothing like fresh corn on the cob, from your back yard! Ive never had so much corn on the cob before this year, and im not going to lie, it is SOOOOO good! Dulany LOVES it too. We had a lot of small cobs so we always gave Dulany her own. It wasn't until yesterday where she really got the hang of it. Now with her 4 top teeth and 2 bottom, she can eat a whole cob by herself. here are some cute pictures!

All In a Day.

Dulany LOVES to wait by the window and wait for grandma to get home, and to talk to Arley (the dog). she has started to to say "hi awi" i about freaked out yesterday when she said it just cause it was an actual phrase.
This is Arley (im not even sure if im spelling the dog's name right!) Im pretty surprised she loves her so much. I was wondering how she would react to having a dog around but everytime we walk outside and we see her she always (tries to) say dog. She loves to go pet her and gets kisses from her.

She LOVES tomatoes it is insane. Aunt Kaylee picked this tomato from the yard and she ate it like an apple.

She always leans on the couch like this like its no big thing. i love it!

Look below for a "tomato" post.

how to eat a tomato have to pick the perfect tomato from(great) grandma and grandpa's garden

Then, you might need a little help from an Aunt to pick it and hand it to you.

Then, you go show mommy what you got!

Then you look at it for a minute or two. Thinking about how you're going to eat it.

Then you take a big bite.

Then realize that its too good to just take a bite and you stick the whole thing in your mouth!
