I'm always up for a challenge. Some of my friends have challenged my mommy to name her top 5 obsessions. I, of course, didn't want to be left out...after all this is MY blog...about ME. So here is my Mommy's and My Top Obsessions.

1. Blogging about me and reading blogs about all my friends and their mommies.

2. Playing with and reading to me of course.

3. Laser Hair Removal...My mommy is addicted and says it is sooooo...worth it. She's going to start her legs next. She won't tell me what she has done so far....hmmmmm??

4. Jogging around Brushy Creek with me...it is so beautiful this time of the year.

5. Eating Starbursts and drinking Land O Lakes French Vanilla Coco with Marshmellows on top...which is why she has running as her previous obsession.



My Top 5 Obsessions


1. Walking around in Mommy and Daddy's shoes.

Happy 18 Months Old to Me!!!!! Now Complete!

I am now finished with MY Top 18 Changes at 18 months!!!
Yeah! I am finally 18 months old!!! Don't people start voting at this age??? I definitely lived a simplier life way back in '07 .... Their was no spinach, time outs, more sleep, less questioning, less boo boos. Those were the days!!

Hannah Live...Just Sounding Cute!

video

Everynow and then, I have to get Mommy and Daddy to record me because some of the things I say sound so cute. I know that one day I might be too modest to speak so freely. So they have to capture it while they can. Plus Mommy and Daddy want to remember my 18 month oh-so-cute voice.

My 1st Look at the Zoo!

I am so lucky. Today my mommy and my neighborhood friends went to the Austin Zoo. It was so much fun! I saw lions, turtles, bears, monkies, sheep and even peacocks!
I really enjoyed getting to see all these animals up close as you can tell below!!!


1,2, 3 babies... check
1,2,3, carseats... check
buckled... check
Let's hit the road... What's taking so long Mommy? We are only spending a few hours at the zoo?

I really enjoyed looking at the goats!
(hmmm... this trashcan sure does look interesting!)

The dear were epecially fun to look at up close.
(hmmm.....I wonder if I can get that rock under that tree???)


The really big turtle was my absolute favorite to get a chance to see... What an opportunity!
(It is such a beautiful day to notice the dust particles floating in the air)



I even enjoyed looking at the camera so mommy would get some great pictures of my 1st time at the zoo!

(hmmm... Those spaces between the bench boards look like a perfect place to try to stick my hand!)



But nothing beats getting to see mommy's sunglasses she wears everyday.
and
Nothing beats your 1st time at the zoo!
