Anytime I take Presley anywhere people say, “She looks just like her daddy.” I do think that they do share some similarities, but I think she looks just like her mommy (and I will post a pic sans makeup to prove it). I knew you would agree.DSC_0565DSC_0569

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving break, and hate that it is over! We spent Wednesday at home, went to Sheridan Thursday, went to Magazine Friday (we lost), went to Bryant Saturday, and back home today! It is a tradition at the Pope family table to tell what you are thankful for on Thanksgiving, but I wasn’t there so here it is… I am thankful for my wonderful husband and my beautiful daughter, I am thankful that Presley has two sets of grandparents that love her like crazy and she loves them even more, I am thankful that my grandparents are counting the days until they get to see their great-granddaughter again, I am thankful that Nick and I both have good jobs and a house to live in and plenty to eat, and I am thankful that we are members of a great church, and I am most thankful for my God that loves me!

DA has some wonderful people, and one of those happens to be Jackie Holloway.  She is an amazing photographer! She specializes in natural light photography, and she was very patient with my little free spirit. If you have a second, please check out our shoot and leave a comment (if there are 10 comments, we get a free 8x10)! Thanks!

Pronouns (Bragging Alert)

Presley had her 2-year checkup on October 30th.  She was in the 75th percentile for height and the 25th percentile for weight.  I was tickled that Presley had reached all of her development checkpoints, like putting two words together, has a vocabulary of 20+ words, stacks things, etc. When the doctor asked if she was putting two words together, I was taken back a little. We just parent Presley. We don't think, "Presley just put together a 3-word sentence!"  I knew that she had, but I wasn't exactly sure how many words she has put together. All that came to mind is, "Watch Gabba now." So, I have been paying more attention to that type of thing, and I can say that Presley can even use pronouns correctly. Here is proof...

Nana was trying to teach Presley to sing Jesus Love Me:

Nana: "Presley, say Jesus."
Presley: "Jesus"
Nana: "Loves"
Presley: "Loves"
Nana: "Me"
Presley: "You"

Presley's Halloween Birthday Party

We had a blast at Presley's birthday party. The weather was beautiful, the kids were fun, and our friends and family were there. What more could you ask for?
