If a mom were to ask me one of the top things I would recommend to do as their baby gets older, I would say document every month. Because the memories start to mix together and you never think you'll forget...but you do. And take TONS of pictures. Enough to look like paparazzi but not so much where your not actually engaging with your family. You don't want to be the Instagram-Queen who's family thinks you suck. Somewhere in between you know?

So here's me documenting 15 months for Penelope and what I can remember for the last month. Cause even a month gets a little hazy.

Favorite Foods: More like what is not a favorite food. She loves fish, rice and raisins. She inhales raisins on a plate as if it were her last meal

Favorite Song: Uptown Funk

New Words: Sky, moon, star, heart, bless you, calculator, knees, apple, blue, doggie

Favorite Activity: Hanging off any available limb of mine, naming all of her body parts and every one around her. Cute until you get poked in the eye

Favorite Game: Being chased by me or the hubs and playing hide and seek.

Chores: Clean up before nap/bedtime, put away laundry, load washing machine and throw away diapers

First Times: Juice, raw carrot, sliding on her own, coloring, tire swing, helping cook

Favorite Book: Dora the Explorer activity book

Signature Moves: Bouncing up and down when she hears a beat, head banging like a rockstar in her carseat for a good song, waving hello and goodbye to everyone after they've already walked away

She's a great sleeper, 7:00pm-6:30am and is taking one nap for about 1.5 hours. Recently she's been waking up a couple times a week talking to herself but then goes back to sleep. So strange.

She is insanely resilient and fearless. It is great until she tries to climb things like a monkey and give me a heart attack.

Penelope started to get impatient and so we've been teaching her to wait for things. So far so good. She went from a high pitched whine if she didn't get something right away, to playing and waiting when I say "wait please".

I'm almost positive she already has all her teeth. I'm so glad cause teething isn't fun even though she does it like a champ. I love that she actually let's me brush her teeth and then after wants to do it herself. The cutest.

This stage is so fun and I really get to see her personality emerging everyday. That's my little road dog...Baby P and me. :)


  1. Oh my goodness, she is absolutely adorable! My Little Miss is only 8-months-old and I just cannot believe how fast the time flies. It really is best to take the paparazzi approach to pictures :)

    Random - but is that a bib with sleeves that Baby P is wearing in that one picture? If so, PLEASE share where you go it from...we are totally in need of something like that!

    1. I know! Isn't it crazy, day by day seems slow sometimes but then you turn around and your thinking what happened? Yeah we LOVE the bib, it's not pretty but keeps everything off of her...it's from Ikea...super cheap for a two pack :)

  2. So sweet!

    Uptown Funk is pretty popular with our kiddos too. The drive is so much more fun when they get to bop their heads along. :p

    1. Thank you! Lol so much more fun to watch them grooving for sure :)

  3. I’m in love with your blog! I like your photos and style of writing! I know that it requires so much time to update blog, but keep doing it!)
