So Leala has learned a new word. She says "please" now. It is sooo cute! I think saying no just got harder! haha!
I changed her diaper earlier and she saw the bubbles. She kept saying "bubble" over and over. So I blew a few bubbles, then put it up because it was time for her to eat. She continued to say "bubble", so I told her that if she said please, we could blow more bubbles (thinking that she wouldn't, and that we could go about our business... I know, it's wrong, but Mommy has had a long day), and what do you know? She says "please" in the cutest little voice. I couldn't get to the bubbles fast enough for this little precious girl. haha!
So of course after several more bubbles, we went and told Daddy her new word. It melted his heart too. By then, sh erealized she wanted to eat, but she didn't want to leave Daddy either. Of course at the time, Kevin was working, so we needed to leave him alone... She whined and said "please!" SO SO SO sad...
She's doing pretty good with her words.. Anytime she sees a camera, she says, "cheese!" So cute!! Oh and she says "ah" when she's hungry... lol.
Anyway, here are some pictures from May that I never got to post. :)
Leala with her cousin, Serenity being silly.
I kept telling her not to lean back in the chair... This shows much she was listening that day!
She fell into her little canvas cube.. too funny...

I'm glad it ended well and nothing was majorly wrong. He sure did give us a scare though. Makes you stop and appreciate the little things.
Leala made him laugh a lot though at the hospital.. She was the star of the show! She kept putting her hands down on the ground and sticking her booty in the air and shaking it! Sooo funny! I don't know where she learned that from either, but now everytime my mom says, "Work it, work it" she gets down and shakes her booty... I know, I know.. not a good thing, but it was too cute. We just can't help ourselves.. When she's a little older, I'll make sure she doesn't do it anymore. :)
Well, we're not sure if last week's rash was the same or not.. Friday night (the 12th), her few bumps on her forehead spread into a full rash.. It got worse over the weekend and we planned a trip to the doctor Monday morning. It got better - like a lot better overnight on Sunday.. So no need in going to the doctor.. She wasn't exposed to anything outside (too hot for that!) so we have no idea what it was. It didn't look as severe as last time, so maybe it was just something else.
I am just glad to have my baby back and she's as sassy as ever! She has actually started reminding me of myself a little bit too much! haha! The other day, I asked her "Who am I?" She said, plain as day, "Ashley". Are you kidding me? I told her that I'm Mommy and that she's Leala and I'm Mommy and so on.. I told her not to call me that and if she did, she'd be in trouble.
You know what my little precious pre-two-year-old did while I had my little talk with her? Put her fingers in her ears and just stared up at all. Yup! I have no idea where she learned that from.. None of the adults around her have done it, and I've never seen any of her cousins or friends do it.. Oh man, she's 16 months and we're already dealing with things like this!

I have been scrapbooking like crazy! I even do it in my sleep. Yeah, no kidding! I really do! I will be taking more pictures soon of the pages I've done in the last week, and upload those too. Leala has been pretty good lately, so I've been able to get a whole lot done! Thank goodness!
I am just loving everything about my scrapbooking business! I love my site! I love to scrapbook! And I can't get over the feeling of being able to provide busy people with premade scrapbook pages! It makes me feel great, because I know how important it is to a lot of us mommies out there!
I will try my hardest to keep churning out these pages at this crazy insane rate that I am! I will need to take a break at some point, but until then... Chugga chugga choo choo! I will keep on working!

soap dispenser (but might just use Kandoo)
Anything else you can think of? Of course I might need to get a toilet paper holder thing, but it depends on the bathroom.. If there's anything else you think we should get, just let me know! I didn't write down stuff that we already have that doesn't need to be replaced, so I might already have what you're thinking about, but I might NOT!
More rooms to come!
