It's My Blogiversary!!!

So here I am, one year later! Happy Blogiversary to me! When I started this blog, Meghan was 6 months old. (In the pic above, she's not quite 6 months, but close enough!) I thought having a blog would be a really good way to keep track of her milestones, 'cuz we know that we Moms don't go running for the baby book each and every time, do we?? I have a record on here of firsts I wanted to remember for her baby book, complete with pictures. :) I also started writing this blog to have sort of a record of our adventures in foster parenting and DHS battles. We've had some drama, haven't we? Thanks to all my loyal readers who've been following the whole saga...I know I'm probably really boring at times, but you still come around to visit! :)

Today Meghan is 18 months old, and I can't believe how much she's grown and changed! Time really does fly. She's into everything now, and is starting to get more and more independent every day. She makes me laugh all the time with the funny stuff she does, and it's such a delight to see her discover new things that she can do. :)

As for me, I hang in there...staying sane! (With a little help from Jose every now and then!) A couple days ago I was playing around with my nephew, and ended up kicking our metal chair and damn near breaking my pinky toe! Had to take some pics to commemorate the occasion...

Looks painful, huh? Trust me, it is! It's been two days since I did it and it's still bruised real good and I can't wear my shoes except for flip-flops or my slippers. Then last night we went out to dinner and when Destiny was jumping out of the van, guess where she landed?? Yup, right on my sore foot!!! I clenched my hand around hers real tight when she did it, and I let go of her and told her she better go to her big sister...I was afraid I'd lash out and hurt her! Thankfully she didn't land on the most painful spot, or I wouldn't have still been standing. It made me cry for a few minutes, then we went in to eat and I ordered a great big ol' strawberry margarita to ease the pain! Hehehe...

Waiting for MrKB to get home from work now so we can go and get those pictures done. My stepdaughters go back home to Texas tomorrow, and I'm really going
to miss them! They've been a big help with their little sisters. Every morning this week I've been able to sleep in, and when I got up the little ones were up and dressed and had breakfast! I could get used to that, but alas, the big girls go home tomorrow. :(

Have a great weekend, and a good Friday the 13th! Happy Blogiversary to Me! :)

Jen said...

She is adorable! Congrats on being around so long...

As far as the foot, I did that not to long ago, though it was Tonks foot that I kicked and broke a toe or two... My foot looked just about as bad and hurt like a bitch!
((You have little stubby feet like my wife, their cute!))

I've enjoyed viewing your life as you see it. I feel like you are a friend even though we've never met.

Have some Jose for me. I can no longer imbibe :(

It's been a year? Wow!!
Yeah girl, you have a drama magnet somewhere on or around your person!! I hope things look up for you soon!

That foot looks wicked painful! I kicked the door frame to David's room one day, broke the toe next to the pinky toe and bruised the top of my foot like you did. That was about 4 months ago and that toe still hurts sometimes when it is pushed or bent the wrong way.

Hope all is well.
Hugs girlie!

Happy Anniversary! Love the pics of sweet baby girl Meghan! Thanks for sharing K!

Happy blogiversary!

OUCH! It pains me just to look at the pics of your foot. I have badly sprained my ankle several times, and I posted pics of it the last time. Practically my whole foot was black! I have a feeling that's what your foot will look like.

I hope you feel better soon!
