I know......

Total blog neglect. Not to mention neglect of all the people who stalk my blog looking for photos of their precious grandchildren. I have no excuse except to say life is a little hectic right now, I've been a little bit lazy and well I just sorta took a break. If you are still sticking with me, I hope you are not disappointed as this will be a photo filled post.

This will also be a Princess J filled post, as that as of late her character has been in rare form. On Friday, Princess J and I headed out to the mall to look for something for Grandma, that she requested. As we walked around the mall, in and out of a few stores, this little girl was letting me know what she liked and didn't like. If the store had nothing to do with her she wasn't interested and screamed at the top of her lungs! It was cute in the first two stores, but by the third one I was a little miffed with her. Thankfully, the mall was not that crowded. Anyway, we made a stop in Baby Gap. She was having a good time here. We found her a cute pair of silver sandles for spring/summer. I always love their little silver shoes, and they always seem to sell out fast. She always gets lots of compliments on her silver shoes too. Anyway, as we were strolling around she managed to find a cute little pair of sunglasses. She would not let go of them for anything. Thank goodness they were pretty cheap, because she wanted those things, and I did too! I thought they would be so cute for summer and photo oportunities. LOL!

As you all know, her favorite show is Little Bill. I love listening to her laugh at all the funny parts...and she seems to laugh at the same parts when she watches re-runs. Her favorite thing now is to imitate what she is seeing on the screen. Today, one of the episodes had Little Bill and his friend taking a long walk to the bathroom at school. As they were walking, they pass the music room, and Little Bill and his friend beat on their chests to imitate the drum sound. There was Princess J right along with them in front of the TV pounding on her chest. LOL, it was so funny and she was so stinkin' proud of herself.

She also received a special package from Switzerland today! Grandma made her a beautiful quilt to help teach her the months of the year. Also inside was a beautiful authentic dress from Austria (I think that's where it's from right?) I can't wait to try it on her and take some photos! Little J also got an awesome sweatshirt! Perfect for those cold mornings going to school! Anyway, Princess J is loving playing with the box now! I think she was trying to pack herself up for a visit, because she put her cell phone, her hairbrush and a couple of toys in the box and then sat in it.

Little J is doing really well also. He is still LOVING school! He gets so excited when we get to school everyday. He is making tons of progress in lots of areas. He really is on the verge of walking. He seems more stable ever single day. Now if we could just get him confident enough to let go of us, he'd be running circles everywhere. I can't wait for the day I have to chase him on his feet too! I know it will be exhausting, and there will be days that I wish for the time when I could put him somewhere and he would stay, but I'm just so excited for the day he will reach this huge milestone! :D

Enjoy the photos!!!
