15 Months

Tessa is 15 months as of today. She is soo fun. I can't believe how much she knows and understands! I like to believe that my AWESOME gym decided to throw her a little Christmas party, I'm guessing since she is there nearly everyday. :) Santa came and she got a goody bag. This goody bag included crayons, coloring book, plane, roll up bracelet, squishy bracelet, rubber ducky, stamp, tattoos, candy cane, bubbles, lolly pop and sparkly bookmark! How sweet is that. I didn't get a very good santa picture.. we'll try again on Friday at the ward party. But here are her cute 15 month pics from this morning and then some. :)

See what I'm saying.. belly, diaper + no smiles.. cute santa though.

She was excited cause a "choo choo" (car) drove by.

She was all smiles when it came to her goody bag!

My fav!

Trying out her new crayons.

This one is for my mother-in-law. She sent me and Tessa matching shirts! :)

And as promised, this is her make believe picture from my last post. Excuse the half-nakedness it was 80+ degrees in our house and she was sweating all day.

Playing Make Believe

Today was one of those days I wished time could stop. Tessa was being an angel! Not that she is ever really non angelic.. but today she didn't cry or whine (too much). She ate nearly everything I put on her tray. She laid down for two naps with out letting out a whimper! And to top that all she was playing make believe!

For her birthday a friend gave her two little rubber dolls.  She carried them around for hours giving them hugs, rides in her toy car, she danced with them, laid them down on pillows and constantly talked to them. SIGH.. My sweet almost 15 month old really only knows how to say a dozen or so words.. in English that is. I'm sure its just me, I have no doubt she understands all the things that come out of her tiny chatter box. I completely enjoyed watching her. And I hope no one thinks its silly but I enjoyed it more when she let me play too. She would give me a doll to hug and I'd hug it. Her big eyes lite up every time and she would smile a grate big smile.

I didn't get a whole lot done around the house.. understatement  But Christmas is around the corner and I can't help but want to spend a little extra time away from the hustle and bustle. Yes today was like one of those days I remember as a little girl that went by just a little too fast.

Don't act surprised.. I miss placed my camera cord.. so stay posted, cute make believe pictures to come. Enjoy this for now.
