Generally a super happy spunky baby thats just really adventurous and into everything! She's getting so fun! I know I say this like every month but this stage is so much fun! She's like my little best friend and just has so much personality!! I am in disbelief that she will be one in less than 2 months!!!!

Size (Diapers, Onesies, Etc.): size 3 diapers! Half 0-3 clothing half 3-6! weight is 16.6 pounds and 27 inches tall! 

Eyes:  dark greyish blue! still holding out hope that they stay blue! 

Hair:  long long! super light brown! Getting light from the summer!! 

Sleeping: Goes to bed around 7 or 8 and wakes up at 8-8:30! It's been so great! takes two two-three hour naps a day but I think she might be ready to shorten or get rid of her morning nap...its getting harder to get her to go down!

Eating: Non stop!!! She eats a solid three good meals of real food a day and then pretty much snacks all day! She still breastfeeds at LEAST 10 times a day...we need to work on that! I'm really hoping to wean around 12-13 months and I know it's going to be a rough transition!

Stands by herself
walks with her push toys
says "bye bye"
says "done"
gives kisses on demand
throws tantrums now. throws herself on the ground and's real fun
can take off her diaper now
can open toilet seats and trash can

Her special blanket
playing with mommy's make up
when I sing to her
other people
kids around 3-6 years old
taking showers with us
bath time 
the car now

when we're eating and don't give her anything
when I try to take something out of her hand 
being tired

Making it home

Well we're all moved in to our new place!! Besides little decor pieces here and there we are DONE. And let me tell feels GOOD. If feels like longer than just 6 months since we have had our own place. So many things are so much easier and more comfortable. Especially with Milan. I don't have to worry if she cries too early in the morning that she is going to wake someone up, or if I wanna leave her toys spread out in the living room-I can! If I don't feel like doing the dishes that day...who cares! I don't have to put clothes on until 12...that's my favorite part. Having friends over is way easier/less awkward too! Just all around, we are loving it! Our apartment isn't perfect, and neither is our complex (ehhmmm like the AC going out 3 times already) but who cares! Okay I care about the AC but that's fixable! Our neighbors are all pretty quiet and respectful which is the biggest thing while living in apartments! I'm going to do a blog post just like I did with our last apartment and do a little tour! Think it will be cool for my kids (and me and Michael) to be able to look back and see where we lived cause you know...memories fade and pictures stay:) so stay tuned for that! It will be kinda similar to our last place because we still have most of the same furniture and decor but its a new place which makes it all look new:) I hope everyone is having a good summer so far and either enjoying the heat-or staying out of it if you're in AZ;) we are staying super super busy with lots of family visiting and work!

Excuse the thousand pictures but the course the 4th of July is my favorite holiday!! I love how everyone celebrates and its in the dead of summer! Christmas is a close second but I could do without the winter part:)

We went to California with two other couples and stayed in a house in Anaheim! The weather was perfect! Not too hot and even got chilly at times which was perfect! Milan did much better this trip than our last trip so it was much more enjoyable!!! We found an empty parking garage about a mile from Disneyland, went up to the top and had the most perfect view or Disneyland's fireworks!! We spent one day at newport beach which is one of my favorites and then the actual fourth having of course a BBQ and slip n slide!
