Days of our Lives....

Like anyone, some of our days are busier than others. From physical therapy twice a week to random doctors appointments scattered about to rooting on her favorite baseball team Tessa is becoming a true socialite!

I finally remembered to take the camera with us to therapy. This is a swing that helps strengthen her stomach muscles and helps with balance.

This contraption is a standing device. With Tessa's drop foot she isn't able to flatten out her foot and stand. This helps her do just that!

Then we roll her around the office...Tessa LOVES it!

She got a BIG GIRL car seat this week. She seems to like it but it sure isn't convenient like the other one when she falls asleep. I already miss the luxury of being able to just pick up the seat and snap it into the stroller and go!

Cheering on the Tampa Bay Rays...I swear she was having a good time!!!

See..... better wash your paws before you touch me!!!

The is the best photo I have of her chompers...she has 2 of them!!!

I think I have FINALLY figured out how to upload videos on here! Before you press PLAY scroll down to the bottom of the blog and turn off the music player or you won't be able to tell what you are listening too!!!

The first is titled Tessa, Da-Da & a sneaky you see the sneaky Pita??

This next one I like to call....Tessa, Da-Da and'll hear why!!

We'll have to be more careful about what is playing in the background. FYI....I am NOT the Trueblood fan!!!

Happy Grandparent's Day!

We'd like to wish a VERY special Happy Grandparent's Day to everyone that is one....especially ours! And a special prayer goes out to Grandma Imogene who spent the night in the hospital....nothing like some good pampering on your holiday! Get better SOON Grandma!

Be prepared...we seemed to take a TON of pics this last week...ENJOY!!!

The other day while I was cleaning out Tessa's closet and drawers her and daddy played hide and seek...

I couldn't help but snap a pic the other night when I went in to check on Tessa...this is how she sleeps!

She has a weird obsession with tags. While helping me fold laundry she located the one on a pair of my panties. Before I took them away from her I had to snap a picture!

Craft day @ The Walker Crib

Friday, Tessa and I packed up and headed over to the NUGGET'S house for a craft day. (Oh...before I forget if you click on NUGGETS it will take you to their site and they are hosting a giveaway/contest. All you have to do is guess which costumes you think Jenna got for them to wear this year. The winner will get $25 off their order at and ALL guessers will get a code for 10% an order!) Okay...back to my story. So we head over for craft day to help Jenna get ready for Jillian, Cameron, Cash and Jack's first birthday celebration. We had hopes of getting TONS of stuff done but as you can imagine 5 one year olds need lots of attention...well at least mine did. Sweet little Tessa still needs her momma close by...see pic below of Tessa in the sling. And I thought she was too big for those! I also had hopes that Tessa would learn an thing or two about crawling...I know I am NUTS...why do I want her to be crawling?! She didn't actually pick up the technique but we did notice her feet scootin around a few times. I think she has actually figured out what those things are for! I told Jenna a few more craft days and Tessa just may be mobile!!

I'm not sad because Tessa is too heavy....I'm sad 'cause the stinker grabbed the recipe when I wasn't looking and took a few nibbles out of it! Look at her....she looks rabid! She's still fighting me for it!

Jack had is eyes on Tessa's paci
Going in for the steal
robbed by momma!
Notice Miss Lazy Pants...aka this next series of pics...
she must have decided laying on her back was easier...TURTLE TURTLE!
Mr. Cameron...even though he discovered one of his nostrils that day, Tessa still loves him!
I know what you are in the heck do they keep those sofas white??? Don't know but they do!
Bye Bye Nuggets! Could they be any cuter! I just want to eat them up!!! With a spoon!

While there I also tried out a recipe I might use when I am a guest blogger over at Or so she says later this month. I wasn't too sure about the "pie"...maybe because when I pulled it out of the oven it had swelled up like a balloon?? But Jenna and her parents assured me it was DELICOUS! Or were they just trying to keep me happy in hopes I'd come back and make lunch again??!!

I made two...this is the PRETTY one...not the balloon!

Speaking of recipes....I've started another blog. Something I am trying out before I make it an actual business. It will be a site that one can log on to and get recipes that correlate with their local grocery store sale ads. This will be a HUGE time and money saving service that I think many will enjoy or at least benefit from. The blog is Deals into Meals...take a peek around and PLEASE give me some feedback!

Speaking of starting another blog...I started another one. If you are keeping track that would make the count 3! For those of you that know my mom aka The Wizard you know she is by far, hands down THEE BEST bargain shopper there is. I've been telling her for years to open a store or start a site with all her deals. Well, after a tip she gave me this weekend I couldn't stand it any longer. I sat down and started the blog myself. You MUST check it will NOT be dissappointed!!! Steals, Deals and Heels is the name of it and I am SUPER excited to share our bargain highs with the world!!
That is it for now! We hope you have a safe and relaxing Labor Day!!
