Picture Overload!

I have some extra pictures of my Cake so Im going to put them all in one post for enjoyment!

My Cake in her crib. She loves every single one of her friends that are in her crib. She insits that they all stay in there at all times and she rearranges them daily so that they are in the right place.

Cake is always so happy in her crib!

Cake is also my Twilight lover. I read the books to her daily. I read a handful of pages to her each night while she is in the bath tub. Sometimes I will read to her while we are both laying in bed and she will fall asleep while I am reading to her. Its adorable. But other times she will steal the book from me and decide that its her turn to read it!


So I did Cake's hair the other day in some piggys and added some corker bows. I loved it! I was

told she looked like a goof ball but since I thought she looked adorable I won!

She loves getting her hair done after I get her dressed. She sits there like a patient little thing and when I am done I always tell her how pretty and beautiful she looks. Whe I tell her that she is pretty she tilts her head to the side and makes a cutie smile. I love it!

This is what her hair looked like when I took the piggys out!!!!

Pasta time

Ugh we have colds in this house right now. Cake was a snotty mess a few days ago and then she lovingly passed it on to me. What sweet sharing girl...

We move officially next Saturday! Im so excited. No more apartments. Cause they are lame:)

Cake had her first bowl of pasta with sauce the other day. She loves noodles but she never was really too interested in the sauce. I tried again with her and she loved it! I swear she ate 2 bowls! The big macaroni noodles are her favorite. She can pick them up really easily and will sometimes poke at them with her fork.

She managed to stay mostly clean. I swear, this kid hates getting dirty from food. Dirt and other stuff is a different story though. But when she eats she tries really hard to keep the mess to a minimum. Its humorous. She mostly gets it on her face. With the pasta though she some how ended up with it all in her hair and in her ear. But none on her clothes!

Okay so I feel like I am constantly slacking and then having to catch up. And I mean that in every aspect of my life. I really need to get my act together!

On Sunday we went to go sign out lease papers for our new place. We move March 15th and I am sooooo excited! I cant wait to get out of our apartment and into a house! And it has a HUGE yard. Cake will be able to run around outside all summer long and be a messy dirty toddler. And we will have enough room for a woof woof. Which is exciting for all of us!

Onto the pictures!

So before we went to sign our papers on Sunday we decided to stop and get some lunch. I was craving sushi so thats what we had! Cake had some veggie tempura and kind of liked it but was more interested in her goldfish. The sushi chef there was laughing at her playing with her fish container and said she was having baby cake sushi!

And I can never get enough of cake in the outfit she is wearing. Its a little one piece that is a halter top with little shorts. I love that where we live it was 91 degrees on Sunday! In the middle of "winter"!!! We never get much of a winter here but 91????? That was a little ridiculous!

This was the cup that they served my beverage in (it was just water)!!! But they said they serve alllll drinks in this cup- even sake!! Can this even be called a cup though? It seriously was the size of a mixing bowl! I couldnt imagine drinking alcohol out of that. Talk about not being able to get up off the floor!!!

Bathtime fun

Every single day this kid cracks me up. She is so full of a bubbly (yet often times demanding) personality. Today was a pretty mellow day. Cake didnt wake up and want out of her crib until almost 1o! Lazy toddler!!! She still is acting pretty sleepy and some what lethargic when she gets up (which the trauma doctor said to watch for) so I scheduled her follow up with her pedi on Tuesdsay. We will see what she says.

Cake and I spent most of the day playing together. She made me food at her kitchen, we danced to the Wiggles (her new favorite show-she loves it more then MMC!!), built a mega block tower for her stuffed dragon, and pretty much just hung out. She totally is my playmate every day and I love it!

Bathtime is always a fun time for us to spend together. She splashes around and I read her a book. Right now we are re-reading Twilight (although Im thinking of getting a new kid friendly bath time book for her).

She loves playing with the millions of toys that she has in the tub with her. Once she hears the water running she will toddle around the house, pick up an armful of toys, head to the bathtub and drop them in (I generally have to sneak a few away that arent tub friendly). Once she is in the tub with all the toys she totally ignores them and is only interested in her wash cloth!!

This is my favorite picture of her tonight. Her classic cheese face!!! I can never get enough of it! She is such a little ham when the camera is out. I totally enjoy all of her cuteness!

Cakes New Ride

So Im sure most everyone has seen the pictures of Cake's new stroller but I love it soooo much that I decided to show off some more pictures of it!

Its a Quinny Zapp and its hands down the best stroller ever. Plus its in orange which makes it even more awesome!

Its so light weight. I was able to push Cake around in it at the grocery store today with one hand while I held a hand basket in the other. And Cake seems to love it. She was kicking her feet the whole time and waving to anyone and everyone in the store.

I decided to snap a picture of her in her new stroller with her new birth certificate. Lame I know, but its what I do! I hadnt noticed how grumpy she looks in this picture until now. She still isnt back to her normal self yet but I guess thats to be expected after what happened. Im hoping that the hospital stay didnt traumatize her too bad. Its going to be a waiting game for her normal personality to come back I think.

Okay, I must get some sleep while Cake does.

Catching up

Wow I didnt realize how many days I had missed on here. I have no idea where most of the days went-which is normally the case!

Cake is finally back home and she is doing okay so far. She is a little insecure being on her own but she acutally slept alone in her crib last night. I only had to go check on her once or twice. Which was great progress. I was expecting more of a fight from her.

We are headed off to Santa Ana today to finally pick up Cake's birth certificate. Its totally lame that Ive waited almost 14 months to get it but I figure better late than never right?? Its such a ridiculous process. Either pay an exorbant amount to have it mailed to you (plus the fact that you have to have a SPECIFIC company notarize the form) and wait forever for it to be sent to you or drive 3 hours away and wait at the courthouse (which will probably take forever too) to pick it up. So we are grabbing Grandpa (my dad) and making a road trip out of it!

It should be a good way to spend most of the day today. It has been requested that Cake and I get out of the house today...the requestee is in bed with a bug (Im thinking from the hospital). And a road trip is a good mellow way to spend the day. And Cake can only do mellow right now-doctors orders!

But onto the pictures of the day....

We were supposed to head up to my grandma's on Sunday but plans changed. So we instead headed to the Spectrum in Irvine (its an outdoor shopping mall type thing) to walk around and then get some lunch. Well, I got myself a smoothie and Cake had her own little baby smoothie. Well, apparently her baby smoothie wasnt enough. She grabbed mine (after she finished hers) and went to town.

Plus there is an extra bonus with these pics....She has piggys! And she looks adorable!

Oh poor Cakezilla!

Have you ever heard the Godzilla song by Blue Oyster Cult? It is Cake's theme song. If you havent heard it/seen the video you MUST promptly head over to youtube and watch it. Its pretty much awesome. (As an added bonus, you will then understand the title of today's post!)
I sing the Godzilla song to Cake all the time. And she loves it!
ANYWAY, a friend of mine found this online (thanks Mer!) and as soon as I saw it I almost died laughing. This is my child. She destroys anything and everything in her path. No matter how big or small, she will tear it down and into pieces.

It all started when she was smaller and first started moving. She would roll over to an object and work sooo hard to knock it over or tear it apart. And the more mobile she gets, the worse the destruction gets! She now will climb onto things just to knock stuff over. Her favorite thing to destroy is a set of mega blocks that her granparents got her for Valentines day. She will hand me a block out of the bag and continue to do so until our entire tower is built. Once there are no more blocks and the towers is high in the sky she backs up a bit and then runs (well, walks quickly) and knocks the tower over. She then turns to me and says UT UT (her version of ut oh!)

It highly entertaining. My mission is to capture it on video for everyone to see!

Ahhh Im caught up now. So here is my post for today! Cake is in bed and I can actually use the computer without her trying to rip the screen off!

This is the plate that Cake and I made for Valentine's day. We made it at one of those ceramic pottery painting places called Color Me Mine. It has my hand in the background and Cake's hand on top of mine. So sweet and sentimental!

Im so glad this plate finally turned out. I havent had the best of experiences with the painting place. This plate is my 4th attempt at making something. Each time I got the dreaded phone call...Sorry but your piece broke while we were firing it. I cant even beging to explain how frustrating/heartbreaking it is to hear them say that. I would always take Cake and make something special to remember that moment in her life. And they would break it. Eh, oh well. I finally have a completed piece and I love it!

This is an example of how crazy dramatic my Cake is. She had been awake from her nap for a little while but as soon as I walked into her room she started acting all groggy and sleepy still. She cracks me up every day. Her little personality is coming out more and more each day. She is stubborn, independent, curious, hard-headed, sweet, and loving all rolled into one! One minute she is pushing me out of the way and saying mooove (although it comes out as moooof) and the next she is running over to me for hugs and kisses. I love her so much and it grows every day!
End sappy moment!

Blood, tears, and procrastination!

So I didnt get a chance to blog yesterday-I have NO idea where the day went- so Im going to probably have to break this up into 2 posts so it doesnt get too overwhelming!

This picture pretty much sums up our day yesterday. She fell on her face and as result had her first bloody nose. There is now a big red mark above her lip that is probably going to turn into a bruise. It seems like not such a big deal now but yesterday I was pretty much in pieces. Hearing her cry broke my heart. She seems to be mostly over it today though. I think in the end it traumatized me more than her! Such is the life of a mom.....
We move in just a few weeks and I have yet to really start packing. I just dont know where to start. Plus we have over a month to make the transfer from our apartment to our house. I think that is what makes me procrastinate. I want to just move a car full of stuff every day so it doesnt get soooo overwhelming. Who knows if that will actually work though!

Sadie's 2nd Valentines Day

Eating her sugar cookie

This past Saturday was Cake's 2nd Valentines Day. I cant believe she is almost 14 months old...where did the time go?

This Valentines day was pretty mellow. Her special Valentines day treat was a doughnut hole with sprinkles(its just not as yummy without the sprinkles!!!). She wasnt too into the doughnut but she loved picking off the sprinkles one by one!

She helped me make sugar cookies the next day. She is becoming such a good helper in the kitchen already! She loves baking things with me and I love sharing that with her. She helped me pour the flour into the mixer and watched it all mix together. The little sneak stole the spatula and ran away with it. But she was too cute so I had to chase her down and take some pictures!!


Sneaky Cake!!
