Oh how I love...

Yes it can be trashy and full of sin, but whenever we vacay to Vegas, it's a darn good time! This trip  we went with Dustin's parents, Mike and Candi. They had not been to Vegas in years, just to play, and we were more than ready for a good time, so we packed up and left for the weekend. Leaving poor lil' Jijjy behind to be pampered and spoiled like a princess with Grandma and Papa! Poor thing.
We went to two shows while we were down there, played blackjack, ate yummy food, toured a little, and saw some HUMUNGOUS dump trucks. Now, if that isn't pure joy, I don't know what is!
Mike and Shanell were down there for their Anniversary, and stayed at our hotel, so we hung out with them all but the last night. Talk about lots of laughs...we love those two to pieces!

 Mike ran to fill up the we decided we'd just pretend he was there.

This is our upgraded room. Dustin told the front desk there was "poo" on our floor in our first room. I can assure you that there WAS something on the floor, but poo, I don't know about that.
 After the "O" Cirque show we wanted to go watch the Bellagio fountains, but...of course, they weren't working!

Helllllooooo gorgeous....
 Wishing that 15 mill was ours...

Yes I paid $18 for 4 scoops. Duh.

 My dear sweet mother in law saving my life. Good thing she got to me in time!

I am so glad we got to go down before the hectic school year started. We always have so much fun with Dustin's parents. They seriously are the best. I lucked out big time. I cannot wait for round 2 of Vegas with them.

Growing like crazy

It's been a long time since I have sat and updated on lil miss "sassy pants".... That's your first update. She's so sassy and full of life, it's keeping everyone on their toes. She's 22 months and acts like a 5 year old, and I'm not the first to say that. She talks so grown up that I seriously just stop in shock most of the time so my brain can process 1- what she's wanting or telling me, and 2- that she is still my 1 year old.

Jaiya now can:
Sing her ABC's
Count to 11 in English and 12 in Spanish.
(She still answers me in Spanish sometimes... Like last week I said, " jaiya are you ready for a bath?" And she started hopping to the bathroom saying, " si, si, si." Or after getting her a treat, "gracias momma!" )
Fully function my iPad. Crazy.
Remember where we are by landmarks when driving. Aka- people's houses, shopping, church.
She completely processes and retains stuff we explain to her.... And like most kids, doesn't forget anything.
Talks like shes 10. Her vocabulary is crazy. She knows all words we use regularly, even some i probably still don't know she knows. Recent ones she's surprised me with are- lighthouse, lasso, octopus.
Potty in her princess potty. Now, here's the thing, she has been trying to potty-train for months. I wasn't to eager to push it because I never have enough time off to be consistent and really potty-train. But, she's ready. She started saying she needs to potty so we take her in and she will go #1 or #2. All for a cookie;)
Put herself to bed. When she's tired, she's tired. Just like her momma. She will ask us to fill her sippy and then she will head for her room, and reach for one of us to put her in her crib. If we walk out without saying prayers with her, she reminds us, and she repeats every last word of each sentence, we say amen, and she tells us goodnight-night (just like that), and that's it.
She is very good with manners. Thank goodness. She never fails to say pweas or sank you or sowwy (sorry).
And this girl loves..loves...loves chicken nuggets, her babies, Kezi, bike-rides, the park (she goes down head first on the slides...ahhh), iPad games, Dora, chocolate milk, fruit snacks, her grandma's and poppa's, rides in the car, singing "You are my Sunshine," "ABC's," "Twinkle Twinkle," and the  "Popcorn song."
Best part. is she has a lisp. I love it!
She is now:
28 lbs.
In a size 24 mo. Or 2T clothes.
Size 6 shoes.
Size 4 diapers.

I cannot believe she is almost 2. Only 2 more months, and her birthday is here.
