Thinking about it...this is misleading bc it looks like she could actually take off, but she's wobbly...very.
2 teeth!!! They finally made their appearance

Now, onto my story. Kids today are bad...way worse than I was. I think every year it gets worse. Not all of them are bad, but lets just say there are a lot more bad kids now than there were when I was in elementary school. I take my class to lunch and make sure they are behaving themselves, open stuff that they can't, make sure they wipe off their faces, etc...well a parapro from another class had to go check on a student in the bathroom so she asked me to watch over her class. During this time, one girl was crying because another girl was telling the boy next to her to "check her out". To which I stuttered, "ummm is this appropriate talk for school?". Not too bad, but wait for it...then a little girl walks up to me and says "____ said that I suck boy pee pee"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was stunned into silence. What 7/8 year old even knows to say that???! I said "ok......" and scurried over to get their parapro to deal with it because there was no way I was discussing boy's pee pees with them.
All I can say is, Liv will not be mentioning the words suck, boy, and pee pee in the same sentence until she's too old to use the word pee pee.

So, yeah I had a busy day...but I think I make my mornings easy because I get all of liv's bottles, food, diaper bag, and essentials ready the night before. Now if the little gremlin would sleep through the night my day would be perfect :).
I have some pictures of Liv from over the weekend in a tutu that her Great Grandma Doreen sent her. I've always been a little so-so about tutu's, but I may have been converted after seeing Liv in this one.
Oh, and Carolyn over at Our Family Photo Blog nominated me for the beautiful blogger award, but since I already did a post with it and I don't have 7 more interesting things about myself...I thought I would just thank her and tell you to go check out her blog because she has got the cutest daughters ever, with the cutest names (Portia and Addie).
loves this phone...it has a rattle in it and she insists on chewing on it constantly

I also went to look at a daycare today, because ::drumroll please::, I start working on Monday!! Full-time! Its the exact same job I had when I was pregnant. The daycare I originally wanted to put Liv in was full and had a waiting list. So today I went to look at a small daycare. My mom knows the woman that runs it and she is very nice. It was very clean and it seemed like she's laid back but also tries to do a lot of fun stuff with the kids. Right now she has a lot of younger children, like 2-3 yr old range and one 3 month old. She isn't positive that she can take Liv on and still give all the kids enough attention so its going to be on a trial basis. Hopefully it goes well and Liv behaves her little self next week. She will be going for 4 days next week and then only 2 days a week when my grandma is back in town.
Ooooh, also...Liv got a new carseat from her dad! She had reached the weight limit on her infant carseat :) I thought she'd look tiny in her big girl carseat, oh no...she fits in it perfectly. The only downfall is that the carseat stays in the car and I am driving a two-door so I have the carseat on the passenger side. I crawl through the driver's side with Liv and strap her in. I think I'll get used to it, but as of now I am usually breaking into a sweat by the time I wrestle her back there.chew chew chew

We had a busy week, well I did and Liv spent two days at grammy's while I worked. I survived my "single mom" week. At least now I know its possible. If my mom weren't as helpful as she is, I could survive just fine. Its a lot harder, but manageable. Liv and I had a lot of fun this week by ourselves. She started blowing raspberries with her tongue and her laugh has been a little easier to coax out of her. This may seem silly, but she also started riding in the shopping cart like a big girl. Its so cute...she smiles and talks to all the strangers passing. She's such a little ham.
Aaaaaand I might have some good news soon on the job front. I will update the blog when I know for sure :).
Here is a little video of Liv giggling at the little bunny's feet "kicking" her in the face :)

Also, keep me in your prayers this week. My mom leaves tomorrow until Saturday night. I work tomorrow and Thursday. I am gonna play the role of single mom for the rest of the week and I'm scared! My plan is to have everything ready that Liv will need for the days at her grammy's. I'll shower at night, have my clothes laid out and just have to get ready quick. Liv's sleeping routine has been so off that I don't know what to expect. Hopefully she'll sleep while I get ready, but if not she'll spend that time in her exersaucer listening to country music with her mama :) Obviously I took her 6 month pictures...and I threw in a video for good measure!

What will keep me busy all these nights? Maybe my new hobby I've got back into. I used to be big into making crafts (purses to be specific). But I just stopped, I'm not even sure why. I randomly get the urge to make something, which usually doesn't turn out, but I try. A few months ago I made Dani a headband and then I kept seeing all of these baby headbands, clips, and bibs on etsy and blogs...and so started my crafting again. Its kind of a collaborative effort with my mom. She's the sewing machine whiz. I'll get there, but not yet...not even kind of. I pick out the fabric, cut and stitch, and my mom sews. I've made tie bibs, now I'm onto snap ones, I've stitched a few headbands and my mom has started crocheting them. I am trying to make coffee sleeves...but this is something I'm actually sewing so its a process. I took some pictures of Liv today and she's showing off a few things we made for her. I'll have to have her model more later :)
My mom crochet'd this headband for her...and about 20 other ones
