It's been a while

Summer is at the other computer right now pretending to type.  She is getting so big.  She especially loves to play with the mouse.  The other day I let her click through some pictures on the computer and she loved it.  The only problem was she wanted to start pushing all kinds of buttons rather than the one that clicks through the pics.  So, I had to put an end to her fun before she messed something up.  I tried to tell her to just push the one button, but she is 1 1/2 so that didn't go over very well.  :)

She is saying all kinds of words and sentences now.  Unfortunately I can't understand it all.  She can pretty much say anything, but she is not too good with S's.  She said her name for the first time last weekend - "ummer."  One of her favorite things to say is "I on play"  (I want to play).  I guess she isn't to good with W's either.  It is cute to hear her talk though.  She's a rowdy girl.  I guess she gets it from Clint - NOT.  She definitely gets it from me.  I'm not sure if it is a good thing or bad thing, but probably the latter.

She's climbing too - on everything.  She is my little monkey. 

My dad moved out last weekend.  I was sad to see him go, but I guess it was time.  We sure do miss him, but he doesn't live too far away so I'm sure we will still get to see him a lot.  He is watching Summer tomorrow while Clint and I take our real estate exam so we can get our licenses.  I can't wait until that is over.  Yesterday was our last day of school.  Thank goodness!!!!!  I thought it would never end.  I hear some noise in the other room, so I better go see what she is into now.

18 Months Old Today

It is hard to believe Summer is a year and a half old now.  The time has gone by so fast!  She caught a stomach bug or something Sunday night.  When she got up on Monday morning, just before my first day in real estate school, she had thrown up in her sleep sometime.  It wasn't really bad, but I could smell it on her and it was on her shirt and sheets.  Just great, huh?  I got her bed stripped and the laundry started before leaving.  She only spat up once while we were gone that day.  My dad kept her for us and had dinner almost ready when we got home.  She was in a good mood when I walked through the door and I played with her a little bit.  Then it happened - projectile vomiting!  Did I say gross?  Because - GROSS!  Clint helped me clean it up and then we ate.  A little bit after that, there she went again.  Except on the hardwood floors this time and not the carpet - thank goodness!  She didn't eat or drink very much at all that day, but since then she has been fine.  She ate well today and has not thrown up anymore.  YEAH!!!!!!!!  Well, I didn't mean to gross you out, but I wanted to document this since it is the first time she has really been least that I can remember.  I am just glad she is feeling better.  I am hoping my dad will be able to baby sit more this week because my sister and her son (who was going to help out) are also sick.  :(  I hope everyone gets feeling better soon...especially my sister. 

I am not going to get to take her for her 18 month shots for another week since Clint and I are both in school.  I am anxious to see how much she weighs.  I am also curious as to how tall she is and I need to make sure to mark her height on the wall tonight before I put her to bed. 

Well, I am off to my first belly dancing class.  It should be interesting!  To say the least....
