And yes, she really is a candy expert, as of Easter she knows all the best kinds of jelly beans.

I said, what does your shirt say and she said "A... A.... A...." and I said, it says "candy." Which was a big mistake, because she kept asking for candy for the entire night.

Izze Day 81

Izze's growing up so much. Today I pulled her hair in pigtails, like I do many days, but she pulled one out and lost the elastic... I had to improvise. We were getting new tires and everyone knows you cannot sacrifice THE CUTE when out in public... EVER. I pulled all of her hair back into one high ponytail. I can't believe it stayed.... I can't believe it was so cute... I can't believe how big she is.

I love this little lady.

We caught THE PLAGUE a few days ago, it was awful. On St. Patrick's Day Izze started the day off just fine, in her cute new green shirt from Old Navy

then in the car on the way home from my dance class she started throwing up all over. It didn't stop for the rest of the night and clear on through the morning. It was sad to see her throw up in her sleep. It scared me too, I barely slept I was worried she'd suffocate on her throw up.

Of course in the morning Jeremy had a really high fever and was achy from head to toe... he had caught the plague. I was fine... but something in my head told me I wasn't going to be. So while my little lady and sweet hubby were sickies and even Titus was throwing, I cleaned the house while I still could. Then it hit me... I threw up all night. Izze was better by then and she thought torture was in order. Until she realized that every time we got up to run to the bathroom it wasn't a game, she'd come and watch us... she' weird. Sometimes she'd hug our arms or touch our back... but then she was off.

It was our first experience of both of us being sick with a totally healthy child... the house was clear evidence of this. Both Izze and Titus destroyed it, ripping up toilet paper IN. EVERY. ROOM. Titus thought it would be a great time to revert to peeing on something.


Me and Izze and Titus are back to 100% but Jeremy still has a bit of a cold and no voice.

It's days like those that really press me to keep our family a one kid family.... I mean among other things, but if I was on the fence that would have been the call. MAN! haha.

This is so cute. (click on the picture to see it bigger) Izze loves to "draw" and "color" last night she was drawing on some paper, lying on her belly. Then Grandpa came and showed her how to draw funny faces. She really loved it. It was adorable.

Of course she's got a piece of purple tulle wrapped around her waist, because she was asking to wear it.

What a fun little lady.

Izze and The "Baby"

Izze and her ugly doll
Originally uploaded by kalliparkin

The other day we went shopping with my mom at Old Navy. We were disappointed... we had missed the BIG 40% off sale and there was NOTHING there. So we decided to see if TJ Maxx had anything. While browsing through the kids section a big ugly doll caught the eye of little Izze. I showed it to her and she didn't want to put it down. She loves babies, but this one was pretty ugly. We skimmed through all the other dolls to try and find one she might like better... and that maybe wasn't so hideous to look at. Izze pretty much only loved that one baby. I thought we could talk them down a bit on the price, because it wasn't in the package and it was dirty.

When we got it home, and Izze was asleep, I gave it a hair cut and style and changed it's outfit. VOILA!!! A cuter new doll. Izze still loves it. She carries it from room to room and pushes it in her stroller and she tried to get me to put my baby carrier on her so she could wear her doll. I have to find a pint sized baby carrier now.

Izze is growing up so fast it's scary. She does so many cute things.

The other day at her doctor visit she weighed 22 lbs a year ago, she was just 11 pounds.

I need to post videos soon.
