Juliette enjoyed seeing the Easter Bunny again this year. She wasn't scared at all and was non-stop jabber mouth the entire time. Maybe she's confusing the Bunny for Santa?
Happy Easter! We had some homemade biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast (except Juliette who fed Monty her biscuit). Juliette hasn't had much interest in her basket...it's still sitting undisturbed on her bedroom floor. I'm sure next year will be the complete opposite! I am off to work in a little while...BOOOOO. At least I will get some cute visitors, Juliette & her Pops. The Easter Bunny will be waiting for her!
Yesterday we visited some local farms as part of this year's "Tour de Farms." We first stopped by the Flying Dragon Citrus Nursery. Josh spotted some citrus trees that we want to get for our backyard! We then went to Heritage Urban Farm, Pinewood Ranch (where Juliette got to get up and close with some goats), and KYV Farm & Ruffled Feathers Farm (Juliette got to stare at some chickens and hens). I love the idea of eating local and fresh foods! It was great to get out on a beautiful day and see what great farms are in our neck of the woods!
Just when you think that she's cuter than ever before, she gets even more ridiculously cute! Juliette continues to be a happy little girl. She is all over the place now! She is sooooo close to walking on her own. She's still picky when it comes to eating. Starches are her best friend so we try to sneak some fruits and veggies in every meal. She's got teeth coming in all over the place. It looks like she's got some molars coming in! The kid absolutely loves being outside. She can be in a poopy mood and as soon as she's outside she turns into a happy kid. Thankfully, the weather FINALLY feels like spring/summer here in northern FLA. We took her to the pool the other day and she got to splash around. She's due for some swim lessons! The next few months have lots of fun happenings planned! Aunt Mandy is coming to visit in a few weeks. Juliette is going to visit Epcot & Hollywood Studios. And we are heading to Kentucky to visit the family in June. Ahhh...summer!
Happy 14 Months my little love muffin!
It's been a while since I've been able to blog on here. Spring means super busy for me at work. It also didn't help that Josh & I were both out for the count last week with a stomach bug that someone from Kentucky brought to Florida with them. Juliette thankfully never got it! Juliette has become a busy body! She is non-stop crawling and climbing! We are trying to get her to walk more. She stands up on her own great, but isn't 100% sure of her walking on her own skills.
While Cousin Olive was in town (before the stomach bug struck us down), we went to Blue Springs. The fellas all went tubing while the gals walked around the beautiful park.
I was probably more excited to go to Cassadaga! Everytime we are driving on I4 I see the sign for it. Cassadaga is known for having a large number of psychics and mediums, and has consequently been named the "Psychic Capital of the World". I just wanted to see what this place was. We didn't stay long enough to get our palms read or attend any séances. I told Josh I wanted to stay at their only hotel for our anniversary, but since he's a skeptic I don't think he is a fan of the idea. Maybe I'll talk him into it sometime!
We took Juliette (and Pappaw) to Magic Kingdom this past weekend! It was a beautifully hot and sunny day! We all had such a great day! Juliette LOVED the "It's a Small World" ride! She was in complete awe. She managed to get an hour nap in thankfully so we stayed for quite a while. Can't wait to go back!
Juliette is getting close to walking! She is all about standing and pulling up on things. I give her a week or two before she is running around like a lunatic :)
The magnificent Meghan Lewis of Meghan Vail Photography did it again! Meghan has become a good friend and was kind enough to shoot Juliette's one year photos. I always know that the pictures will be great when she is taking them! The day of the shoot, Juliette wasn't having it...we could barely get a smile out of her. But somehow Meghan got some smiles in between all the seriousness! She works wonders!
p.s. Juliette wasn't into the cake either...her cake pictures are some of the sweetest, most pitiful pictures I have ever seen!
We are getting closer to having a little walker! Juliette FINALLY is getting the urge to walk!!!!! My guess is that we are only a week or two away from her taking her first steps on her own.
On another note, Juliette must have some more teeth coming through. She has been a little cranky and has not been wanting to eat much. Thankfully, her whining isn't that bad!
