Million Dollar Baby

My sister Anna was kind enough to let Daisy play with her wallet which was full of one dollar bills! Daisy LOVED playing with the money for some reason.  She has no concept of what money actually is but, she knows that it is something we do not ordinarily let her play with so that made it extra special.  I think it's neat that she has no idea what money is or what it is used for and to her it is just another toy.  This season if innocence will pass so quickly! 

Whenever I put our glasses on Daisy I say (in that high pitched mommy voice of excitement), "go show Daddy.  You're a cool dude(ette)." And she goes trotting off with the glasses to show Daddy and then Daddy gets all excited when he sees her which makes her very happy.  Then she wants to be picked up so she can sit with Daddy in his office chair.  This little girl adores her Daddy!!  Oh, and since I always forget to mention...Daisy is a HUGE blankie and poppy (pacifier) baby.  She primarily wants these two things when she is tired or when she is upset.  At bedtime she rubs the satin edge of her blankie between her fingers and buries her face in it.  It's so cute to watch her!
My hubby has been hard at work in our entryway for the past few weeks.  Daisy has been his little helper and was especially fond of the tape measure.  I will be sure to share the before and after pictures in the next week or so!! IT looks AMAZING!
I do not normally let Daisy eat apples because I know they are a choking hazard.  Daisy had pulled this apple out of our fridge and I was monitoring her closely (and taking pictures) because this was the first time she had ever shown interest in an apple.  She loved eating a whole apple like a big girl!  Hence the silly faces:).  Isn't she a crack up!
My pretty little strawberry blonde princess

my mom took these pictures of me, my sister anna and Daisy while we were skyping...so literally my mom in CA took these pictures of her skype image on her computer and sent them back to us.  Kinda cool huh.  I thought this was a special moment captured! 
I am so behind in posting these cute pictures of Daisy with her Auntie Jessica and her Grandma Martinez!   These were taken while Grandma was here visiting a couple weeks ago.    
Daisy loves sitting on the patio furniture like a big girl.  She doesn't quite have the concept of getting down carefully though.  She likes to fly off or dive off so we have to keep a close eye on her.  It really is amazing how big my little girl is now.  She wants to do all the things that we do now and she is learning like a little sponge.  She is soaking everything we do up so that she can imitate it! 
Love this silly picture of Daisy and Grandma below.  Daisy is such a little ham....always doing something to get a laugh out of people.  
 I love this picture with my sister Anna and Daisy.  It has been so nice to have my sister's company the past several days though I do feel bad because Daisy has been sick her entire visit.  I am hoping she starts feeling better so the last couple of days can be a little brighter for all of us.  We have still managed to enjoy going to the pool, going to see a movie (Harry Potter finale, which was quite entertaining if I do say so), eating otter pops, grilling hot dogs, taking Anna's Senior pictures, babysitting Daisy's four pack buddy Sam and playing lots of Kinect...oh my goodness my legs are SO sore!!  Love having you here Anna! xoxo
Happy Sunday all!  Be blessed today.
