Oo Oo Ah Ah, and blah blah blah

I promised myself that I would be really good about keeping a baby book for Annalise, and write down all of her milestones when they happened. Then I had a baby, stopped getting sleep, and came back to reality. I then realized I don't have time to do that every day. So it is a good thing I have a blog!

Annalise has been changing from my little baby to my big toddler and I love how she talks all day long. I know you are aware of many words that she can say, but I have decided to write them all down for all the grandmas (and hopefully for future reference also.) 
In no order what so ever:

  • What's This
  • One, Two
  •  A
  • Red
  • Heart
  •  Eric, Amy,Nana,Papa,Grandma,TuTu,Mama,Dada,Jesus,  Machooch (Uncle Matt) ,Naya (Uncle Brandon), Precious, Ayla, Anna
  • More
  • Up Please
  • Help
  • Thank You
  • Uh-Oh
  • Yes,No
  • This, That
  • Hi, Bye
  • Off, On
  • Monkey, Duck, Cat, Turtle, Fishy
  • Arm, Eye, Head
  • Agua
  • Buddy, Elmo
  • Money
  • Hot Dog, Cheese, Egg, Apple
  • Yuck
  • Shoes
  • Boo-boo, Ouch
  • E-i-e-i-o, Up Above (in Twinkle, Twinkle), Pop-Pop (popcorn popping), Hurray
  • Hush (for Goodnight Moon), Braber, braber (for Brown Bear, Brown Bear)
  • Well-well-well, Ayaya
  • Brrr, Hot
  • Diaper, Poo-Poo
  • Ball, Bubble, Go, Yay, Boo
  • You

She also does many animal sounds  such as: Quack quack, Ah ah (monkey), Woof Woof, Aaahh (Gorilla), Meow, Moo, Baa Baa, Doodle doo, Roar

These are just a few reasons why I love being a Mommy!!

Buckeye Country Here We Come!!

After searching far and wide for the right MBA program for Kevin we have finally chosen where we are going to spend our next two years! We were able to visit many schools including University of Texas, University of Maryland, Brigham Young University and Ohio State University. In all of our travels one school fit us the best, and it turns out its Ohio State.

When Kevin sent his essay for OSU he wrote that he loved the school and the program, the only thing that they didn't sell him on was Columbus and Buckeye Football. So it looks like we have a couple of things to get used to, but we are all excited to be starting school again!!

We will only be two hours away from my parents which will be a big help. Part of me is really sad that I won't be near my brothers at BYU, but I think Ohio will be another fun adventure for us. We are probably moving in July, which I know is going to come way to fast. We  have been here in Philly for almost four years now, which almost makes a tie for the longest I have lived anywhere. Needless to say it will be very sad to leave, but I have made many good friends that I will have forever. 

I am also excited about being in Ohio because it is near Twinsburg, Ohio. Every year they have the twins festival there, so Corinn and I are planning on going in August for the first time! 
Well we have a lot of work to do......yay for packing and moving. This should give me a good chance to go through all of my junk and get rid of the things I don't need. 

I am done blabbering! I hope to see most of you on Friday at my Pampered Chef Party! Ciao!

My baby girl is getting big so fast, I can't believe it. She is now 18 months old!!! Sunday was her first official day of nursery, but she has been going for a couple of weeks thanks to our awesome nursery leaders. She talks all day long, sometimes even with real words. Recently she learned how to say her name and how old she is.......


She also loves to sing songs now,..... well she likes me to sing the songs while she fills in her favorite parts. There are a lot of videos below, so you can choose your favorites. The one I find most entertaining is the popcorn popping video because she cant figure out what got on her hands, enjoy....

Old McDonald (whenever she doesn't want me to sing a certain song she likes to say no over and over agian......for example:)
