Gabba Friends

It's no joke... we love Yo Gabba Gabba. It's not as boring as a lot of preschool shows and it's strange enough for us. So naturally when Izze turned 2 she wanted a YGG party. At first I was going to try and do a Halloween theme again, Peek a Boo Guess who's Two! A GHOST PARTY!! I was thinking it would be the last year I could get away with it... I was so wrong. I told Izze about her party and she said she wanted a Gabba party! It's a pretty new show and there aren't decorations you can buy for it, so I was on my own! I think I pulled it off pretty well! We came across gabbafriends shortly before I started looking for her birthday ideas. It's a pretty cool site, with a lot of ideas and other fanatics of the show.

Every couple of months they have contests for YGG prizes. One of the categories is birthday parties... so here I am, shamelessly pulling on you guys to vote for Izze's party.

You can see the party there. Check out the other submissions too!

There's another mom who acknowledge us when making her invites, saying thanks for inspiring her and for my ideas!

I won't leave without a picture though... Izze isn't feeling well. She woke up really early this morning and needless to say she was tired again before I even changed her out of her jammies.


I hopped online to check my email and Izze climbed behind me to watch a little TV. She laid her head on my shoulder...

a few minutes later I realized she was asleep! Standing up behind me, resting along my back. I hunched over and tried to get her to come around to my lap, but she got grumpy, so I let her stay, she fell right back asleep.

Toddlers are hilarious.

New Header.

I decided to make a new header for the blog.

I think it's pretty cute! Haha.

I can't scrapbook with paper in real life... but let me do it on the computer and...

I have a lot of fun!

It's just finding the time to sit down and do it.


K... bye.

Birthday Bash.

I just realized I never posted about Izze's birthday and I have a lot of pictures! She had such a great time, she loves all her gifts and keeps talking about her "Muno Cake Party" I think her favorite gifts so far have been these little newborn animals that make little squeaky newborn noises and have bottles to feed to them. She really loves her pots and pans and her new grocery cart. She thinks all the clothes she got are jammies and insists on wearing them all at once (I have to really distract her). One thing in particular she loves is a Nightmare Before Christmas blanket she got from Jessica. She carries it everywhere (and I cannot distract her). She calls it her Pumpkin Kingy blanket... so soft. She has a little Jack doll she loves too. She's so funny.

You can see all the pictures by clicking right here.

Some new things Izze's been doing or has said lately:

She really talks up a storm, has full conversations and cracks jokes.

I let her watch The Little Mermaid and she is now obsessed with Mermaid. She has now seen all three of the Mermaid movies and asks to watch them.

She still loves Yo Gabba Gabba, but I think she loves the characters and songs more than the show right now. As far as showsn goes, she likes Dora (which comes on right after Yo Gabba Gabba and is the only reason she knows of it... ugh.) She LOVES Dora, not even just a little. I think she realize Dora and Isadora sound alike and she started liking her. Her big POTTY incentive right now is to potty 5 times in her potty and she gets a HUGE Dora coloring book. Where Dora is a mermaid... win win.

She loves Nightmare Before Christmas and I don't have it on DVD, so we've been watching it on the computer. She knows she can watch movies on the computer, she pretty much knows her entire world is digital and she can have anything on demand. Such a difference from generation to generation.

She told me yesterday "It's raining snow, Mama! The snow is white!" It was really funny.

She wants to eat the snow and put it in her drink.

Jeremy decided she is a born performer and as he was telling me that, Izze came running out of her room with her tap shoes on and pom pons in her hands!

Loves vegan cheese

Loves soy yogurt

Loves her new green fairy wings

Loves sleeping with Mama and Daddy

Says "That's me!" when she sees a picture of something she likes, for example, she saw a picture of the daughter of a friend of mine hugging Brobee (from Yo Gabba Gabba) and said "That's me!!" She also saw a picture of a little girl's room with a play kitchen and said "My room!" It's different than when she says "MINES" and takes something away. She's saying she likes it, but she says "That's me!"

She weighs 24 lbs and is 33 inches tall. She's clever and she's funny.

I love every Izze minute.
