Titled: "A very random post that probably shouldn't have been published. Yet here it is." Today we spent much of the day just playing. There wasn't much cleaning that needed to be done around the house, which is always nice! And I try to have only a small window of movie watching during the day, for Tennesy. Which means we spend a lot of time outside, or getting creative in doors. I'm not enjoying the sun setting early. It's making for long days and Tennesy seems to be tired much earlier.
She's really changed a lot and while I love it, I hate it just as much. She's really got a silly sense of humor and her personality shows all day. We have so much fun together. Even when Dad was out of town all week and we were sick with sinus infections, and colds, and ear infections. Talk about getting creative! I had to come up with ways to keep her busy because somehow, even sick, she had so much energy. I on the other hand, just wanted to lay on the couch and not do anything. Thankfully I do have an incredibly happy, and extremely great kid, so it wasn't very hard. She's basically the best little girl in the world. We had a lot of fun today. She got a few things for her birthday and has loved them all! Grandma and Grandpa Everett got her a little toy you walk around with and has played with it first thing every morning! We take it outside and today all of the kids were playing with it. Grandma Bob got her a vintage Fisher Price Music Box TV, just like the one Krame had growing up. She opened it tonight and has loved it. We got her magnets animals for the fridge that she quickly figured out and plays with every time we are in the kitchen. She's so silly though and pushes them under the fridge and then likes try try to get them out... I guess she thinks that's fun? We also got her little animal figurines that I put on top of her cake. She was so excited over them and has carried them around with her. They were super inexpensive and are probably pretty lame to anyone else, but I knew she'd love them. She really didn't need anything and at a year old, you don't need to do much. But she has had fun with what she got and it was really fun watching her get so excited over her gifts. She's such a sweet girl and I can't get enough of her. We think she's the cutest kid ever to exist. Maybe it's because we're her parents.. Maybe because it's just the truth.. Maybe it's both. Who's to say! 
We celebrated Diwali with some friends and it was a lot of fun. Tennesy, of course, was the center of attention (honestly she doesn't try to be. She's just really adorable!) They turned Burn on so she would dance and she happily put on a show. It's the funniest thing ever. Also everyone couldn't believe what a good eater she is. The girl loves food, it's true. But there was an nine month old there that was being spoon fed yogurt. Maybe she eats well because we skipped all that and went to the real food. And let's be honest, I wasn't about to teach her to wait for someone to put a spoon of good up to her mouth. If she wants food she's got to learn to feed herself! Haha. I'm not a terrible mother, I promise. Now here are some pictures from the past few days. Oh how I love this sweet kid. She has the kindest little heart and the sweetest personality. She's so friendly and will snuggle up and give bear hugs and blow kisses and I love it. She likes to hide and pop up and say "boo!" So she's been doing that a lot lately. We played in the pillows today and she was giggling so hard. Yesterday she spent a good half hour "getting me" with the inflatable sword. She thought it was hilarious. She disappears and I can always find her on the other side of the kitchen table looking out the window yelling to our neighbors. She loves to play with their little boy, and they spend a lot of time making each other laugh through the windows. I'm not sure what she'll do when they move. We've been lucky to have two wonderful neighbors live there while we've been here. Today the little boy was out doing Tennesy's dance. He isn't the only one, and my neighbor said Tennesy has started something. It's so funny.
