Trinity is 11 months old!

Seems like I JUST wrote her 10 month post...probably did just write it lol. It's very hard to stay on top of things these days.

But goodness gracious! She's mastering running. Not quite taking off too much but boy she's fast! And she tests limits to the max. I'll tell her no, which she fully understands, and she will sneak to do it anyway. Sometimes even looking to see if I'm paying attention. Most of the time it's pulling the tea bags down to open the box or pulling all of the tupperware out of the cabinet...then falling because she stepping on the tupperware tops. Sigh.

She loves to squeeze in between things and hide. Then she laughs when you call her name as if you don't know where she's hiding. It's the cutest thing ever! She also has a fondness for slapping. Thanks to her grandpa who is already teaching her to fight. I anticipate many phone calls when she is around other kids. As her two top front teeth descend, I'm finding that she's not wanting to eat a whole lot. But she's biting EVERYTHING. Anything she can connect those chompers to, she's trying to bite it! Fun. Really. LOL

She is hilarious and every day she cracks me up. She sings herself to sleep when we are in the car. If I have music playing in the morning, she will wake up singing and dancing. The perfect way to start the day. I now mostly call her boogie. She's always dancing. And I do mean always! When she does decide to eat, she eats like a champ! Although she is refusing to sit in the highchair and eat. I suspect this is because her granny isn't making her do it at her house. But who knows?!

She loves to be outside, even though she gets flushed really fast. But she loves the outdoors and that is ok with me!

Before, she was refusing to wear shoes. Now she LOVES to wear shoes and even goes looking for them if they aren't on her feet! This makes me happy because now I'm not so paranoid about her walking around outside the house. How did this come about? I took her to Walmart, put 3 pair of shoes in front of her. Bought the pair she touched first and it was that simple! Of course they are silver sequined shoes but who cares?! SHE'S WEARING SHOES!

I'm in fully party planning mode. I've sent out invitations to almost everyone that I plan to invite. So much for it being small. Not going to happen. Her birthday party is falling on a day that a lot of loved ones can't be in attendance and I've told them it's fine because she won't remember it anyway. I have a feeling my mom has posted the invite somewhere for the entire world to see lol.

I'll have another post with the crafts and such...don't want this post to be too long! Some people have asked me "how was the party?" It hasn't happened yet. LOL! I'm just trying to get all that I can done so I won't have to stress about it the week of the party! You guys are virtually invited! I'll share as much as I can. Hopefully someone will volunteer to be the picture taker so I can enjoy the party with her. I look forward to it!

I think that's enough for one post lol. Here are some pictures of my little doll. I need to issue an apology to Jay Z and Beyonce because anytime I attempt to touch her hair she hauls @$$! LOL! Even in her sleep! So now, I get it. But she will attempt to comb it herself. With the back side of the comb. Go figure.




No longer my little baby!
XOXO

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
