What an accomplishment...

I stated earlier that one of my goals over my time off from work was to clean out our office which had recently been turned into a landfill.

Well I am PROUD to say that after a few hours this morning...I have turned this...

into this!

And we also moved that big desk out of essie's room and put in some low shelves for her toys! I think it looks so much better!


A few more firsts

Yesterday Essie tried oatmeal for the first time....and she LOVED it!

Well Essie has slept in her room for the past 3 nights!  We have had to get up at least once (sometimes two or three) times to either feed her/put a paci back in.  She can put her own paci in but at night she can't find the darn thing (half the time it's under her).  Soooo since she's been sleeping in her own bed she's also been taking a bath in her own tub! (up until now she and I usually take a bath together)!

2009 in facebook statuses

Okay so I found this thing on facebook that automatically randomly selects some of your statuses from the year and compiles them.  I thought it was such a neat way to look back!

First of all...miss priss slept ALL night in her own bed in her own room (she did wake up for a feeding at 4 but went right back to sleep!).  We are so proud of her!

Early this morning we made a spontaneous decision to take a quick road trip to hit the outlet malls in Tunica for after Christmas deals.  Essie looked like such a BIG girl in her outfit this morning...and could that shirt be any more true???

So we headed out with a plan to shop and eat at Paula Deens....Essie loves to travel!

We made a wrong turn in Memphis and ended up driving right past Graceland! I was so excited!  I've never been there and I was astonished that you could see it right from the highway!  We also saw his plane Lisa Marie...we HAVE to make a point to go and tour it sometime!

When Sarah &  Matthew heard we were going to do lunch at Paula Deen's they jumped in their ride and headed over to Tunica as well!

We did get some good deals...alot of stuff for next winter/Christmas for her.

At Paula's Essie got to sit in the high chair for the first time ever....she looked so big!  (and I have to get one of those high chair covers...ewww)...ummm hint, hint Meemaw! :)

She was into everything.  She pulled everything off the table and stuck her fingers in everyone's plates...she was very disappointed that she only go to eat applesauce and none of the yummy food. And who would've guess that she'd talk Paula Deen into strolling her around?! :)

Once we got home our friends Ashley and Chandler and their lil one Adalyn came over for dinner and to exchange gifts.  They gave us gift certificates for a date night and Essie some pjs, a toy drum that rocks, and sunglasses!
