I've been taking the pictures!

So, I HAVE been keeping up with taking my picturers of the day- just haven't been keeping up with posting them! NEVER AGAIN will I let that happen, what a pain in the rear.
Anyways, trying to upload a months worth of pictures was not fun. They are not in order, and there are quite a few duplicates of ones I've already posted. I'm sure I also didn't post some. But I learned my lesson and will not do it again :)

I am 29

I have to say, I think I have changed the most in the last year, then most of the years combined in my 20's.
I now wake up, ON PURPOSE, before 6 am at least 4 days a week
Before 5 am at least 2 days a week!
I just started- about a week before my bday- a gluten free/dairy free diet (um, say WHAT?)
I only drink wine maybe once a week (another say WHAT????)
oh, and I can run for over an hour!! I have never run longer than 20 minutes in my life, never longer than 2.5 miles. I now run 6 miles every Thursday, and longer on Saturdays. I have gotten my fastest mile down to my highschool best (that I can remember) 7:45
I have run in two 5k races, have my first 10k on May 8th, and my first 1/2 marathon this June!
I also have finally am finishing up a degree- my AA in General Studies with a focus on Human Development
I also got my Preschool Teacher Permit from the state of California
Not to mention gave birth to my second daughter on May 8th, 2009.
Yep, a lot has gone on.
So, as I like to do every year, my list:

I am
a Mother
a Wife
a daughter
a sister
a lover of wine
a lover of cheese (but no longer eating it :( )
a runner!
a scrapbooker
a lover of photography (and finally figuring out how to work my DSLR!)
a Friend
a teacher
a business owner
all of the sudden a morning person???
a reader and lover of all books
a wanna-be yogi
finally feeling like an adult- and excited to see what is going to become of me in the last year in my 20's!
Next year, Dirty 30!!!!

Isabella Johanna is 11 months old!

At 11 months, Miss Izzy J...
(sorry- not the best pic, but the best one i got!)

Has taken her first steps! The most in a row has been 5. But, she still prefers to crawl and cruise
Has four teeth! The top two have been driving me crazy taking their sweet time, but they're here!
Her hair is getting thicker, and an occasional "flip/curl" turns up
Is a goofy girl
Is also, apparently, a biter (how did I end up with two biting kids????)- luckily, she's only bit her sister (and, honestly, her sister kinda deserved it)
LOVES to yell
Wears 12 - 18 months clothing, sometimes even 2t!
Weighs about 24 pounds
Goes to bed between 6 and 7, and wakes up between 6 and 7
Takes only ONE nap a day, but its usually at least 2 1/2 hour, and sometimes 3 1/2 hours!
Will try pretty much any food we give her- loves fruits, especially berries, and LOVEs to drink water out of her sippy cup
Still nursing a good amount, but we've eliminated the night-time nursing (finally!)
I know most of the times she's nursing its a comfort thing. She eats MORE than enough food.
Does a few baby signs, but only when she wants: all done, more, please (did that once), waves hi and bye, gives high fives & knucks, and jsut started clapping!
She gets frustrated with her big sister (uh hem, hence the biting) but also loves her so much
Gets so excited when Daddy comes home!
Loves to go for walks around the yard and look at the birds and bees and the garden with her daddy
Is so much fun, and mommy, daddy and big sister Jessica are loving watching the toddler she is turning into!!!!
