First day of winter.

Dec. 21st was the official first day of winter, here's some pics from the day.

So it was like 5 degree's out if even that but that wont stop a little playing in the snow.
this photo is clickable, it brings you to my photostream. :)

Later at my moms. Last years snow suit, it still fits! Glad I tried it on before just packing it away like I almost did, I never would have thought it still fit. Happy about this because I LOVE this suit!

This is her almost a year ago wearing this snowsuit.. January 2008...11 months ago.
After I brought Tehya in to get warm, I went back out for a couple pictures.
Only half way through the was snowing hard just can't tell from the pics. Middle picture is clickable.

December 12th, being pretty next to "dammy's" tree. She calls my mother Dammy. She calls grandpa "Dumpa" and sometimes "Dubba".

The moon on my birthday. Dec. 13th. The closest it's been to earth in the last 15 years. This photo is clickable. :)


Yes, she's licking my birthday cake. She didn't eat any, she spit it out in disgust, lol. She licked the frosting though. Same with oreo's...eats the cream, throws the cookie. I didn't eat any either, just one bite, I hate sweets and that was SWEET.
Yesterday. She thought jumping on the bed was hysterical. She loves chasing and being chased, and she growls, lol.
Today. Snot face. So bundled she can barely move, lol.

With Lambi. One of mums dogs.

Such a snow eater. Who cares about playing, she wants to eat snow.

Word List 23-24 months.

Final Word List post, I can't keep up anymore!

Tree. Broke. Color. Soup. Drop. Dollar. Milk. Snail. Careful. Yeah. On. Stop. Drink. Thirsty. Spaghetti. Story.

Okay I'm such a slacker, there's like 10-20 (I don't know how many, a lot) words I didn't log. i didn't write them all down and now I just can't think. It's a good month to stop keeping track because it is no longer possible at her rate.

Small Talk

Notice she doesn't look at me at all, little booger, lol.

Catching Up

Oh my gosh, I've been computer-less for a couple weeks, my pictures and video's were piling up. I had nearly 500 files on my camera when I transferred them to my pc, which is still crap btw. So many updates I'll prob leave half of them out cause there's too many.

I've made two different posts, so there's one new one under this one. :). This ones still long though. Not to mention this ones scattered and out of order. I tell you what, my OCD is going batty with all this disorganization! I think my blood pressure is rising, lol..

Random pic... EVERYONE says she looks like the Olson twins all the time to me (edit: way cuter of course! lol), what do you think?

Her fake smile.

Usual spot.

Toddler Toes (clickable photo)


She does that thing thing with her lip ALL the time, it's one of her looks. Kinda like chewing it, lol.

Finger painting. She used one finger the entire, didn't want to dirty any others....until grammy made her put her hands it, lol.


At grandma's, her dad's side, in the basement playing with bubbles. I like how her face lights up when she blows a bubble.

Wills moms voice in background here.

Waking up is hard.

Christmas parade. Her expression the entire time!

I gave in to the fuzzy crocs for Tehya, I'm temped to get myself some to what all the hype is about.....but I don't know...

Yelling at Bubba my moms dog, I think she says Lambi in there too, the other dog. She hates when they bark.

Just playing with my camera. Her middle toe has a birthmark. It's cute.

Holding grammies, my moms birthday gift. She carried it around awhile before giving it to her.

Spinning, spinning, spinning, she spun quite a bit before I started the video. She does a funny thing with her eyes when she spins, lol.

Sniffing her book. It's a scratch and sniff.

Busy Ball Popper

She loves this bear because it talks to her.

Wrapping Uncle Brandon's Shoes with grammy.

Snow Days

We've been playing in the snow a lot. This video is Tehya's grammy pulling her, my mother. Tehya screaming with glee, lol.

I cut her head off, I couldn't see the pictures I was taking, the sun was glaring on my screen.

Hot Cocoa to warm up.

Just being silly.

A different day in the snow, a much colder day too! Rosy cheeks.
Warming up from the cold.

Word List 22-23 Months


Okay so there's tons more for sure. She had another word explosion and I didn't write anything down until now. I think I'll keep track until she's two (one more month) but after that I know I won't be able to keep up. She can and will repeat everything, she speaks in sentences at times, and says random sentences I don't expect out of nowhere. Example shopping a couple weeks she sees a little girl and says, "what's your name?" and she's never heard anyone say that before. She a talker that's for sure and when she's not talking she's babbling my ear off. :)

P.S. I have many new pics and video, just no computer to post them, soon though. :) I'm so behind in blogging!

She's mad!

"I'm mad" she says. She told me that today, several times, lol. I'm mad too, it's after 4 and she hasn't napped! She's mad cause she don't want to nap.

Sidenote: Her hair drives me nuts in her face. It's usually up or styled back but not this time, lol. It's not even combed, lol.

Update from Wednesday's being sick blog.

So I blogged about Tehya being sick since Halloween for over a week, see "Wednesday".

Basically we went to the doc (they are not so bright as always), looked at her ears and mouth said looks great, said she's prob got a minor cold because her tongue was a little white. I wasn't buying it, I didn't think she had a cold, no symptoms.I never trust the doctors (yeah that's me...looking into seeing a Chiro instead!). Nothing he said made any sense considering her symptoms and every time I go there I come home knowing the same as before I went in except I'm more confused. Plus the fact that the doctors are so uneducated on breastfeeding, and other subjects, ugh. Okay, rant done, moving on.

So regardless of the docs conclusion, I knew it wasn't right so I got to googling. I was thinking sore throat or maybe strep. In these days she had a white sore on her tongue, and I called the doc and there ONLY advise was "coat it with an antacid", never gave a guess what it might be and didn't request to look at it. Then later while googling I come across thrush (considering the amount she'd been nursing it was a possibility). I wasn't convinced yet but I kept that in mind.

The following days during teeth brushing time I noticed her gums looked swollen and dark red, and then they gushed blood as I attempted brushing them. I mean, I barely touched her teeth and the blood poured out. So I googled some more, and saw this Herpetic Gingivostomatitis caused by a type of herpes virus called herpes simplex virus type 1 or HSV1. Symptoms including, sore throat, fever, irritability, loss of appetite, not wanting to eat or drink, red swollen bleeding gums. She had ALL these symptoms. I saw that and said, that IS what it is! I called her dentist and described the symptoms, went in the next morning, and he said she has herpes simplex virus INSIDE her mouth. Confirmed. Mystery solved!

Thank you pediatrician for knowing NOTHING, thanks for looking in her mouth and saying "looks great", thanks for telling me she had a cold when she didn't. Thanks.

So Tehya has HSV1. She probably got it from me. :( It is past through cold sores and I coincidentally had one the week before. Now she'll suffer from it forever, just like cold sores, it keeps coming back. Maybe once every 6 months or once every 6 years, but it will always come back. It's basically like a cold sore but she got the mouth sores in her mouth, although it can spread to the outside. It is VERY painful. The dentist (I love her dentist, thank God, even if we travel an hour for this particular one), he said it's like chicken pox, the INITIAL sickness (fever, etc) will not return, she'll only get sick once, although the sores can come back. It is a virus so it cannot be treated with antibiotics, just keep her happy and comfortable as possible. She is pretty lucky so far, he said some kids get DOZENS of sores at a time and they can cause their teeth to break as well.

Yeah I know, this is getting annoyingly long so that's it, Tehya almost completely recovered from it this time around. Phew.


I didn't get it all on tape, she was screaming for several minutes before and after, lol.


It hailed on Monday..the 10th.

Random since last blogged...

Wednesday (It's a long one)

I don't have all my pics and video's on this pc for the week, just today's so I'll catch up from the week leading up to today later if I get around to it, lol.

Tehya's been sick since the morning after Halloween. Poor thing, she's REALLY sick. Low grade fever for several days, no poop for 5 days, hasn't ate for 3 days and counting. Sore throat for at least 3 days now. Starting to wonder if it's strep. She is starting to feel better although she still doesn't feel great. :( Phone call to the doc (again) in the morning.

We went outside for fresh air, it was very nice out today. She actually felt OKAY for a small amount of time.

Playing with leaves

"choo choo" A train was going by in background.

Sasha my kitty.



Trying to get the door open.

"uppy". Normally she does it by herself, but today wanted assistance. :)

Doing something funny with her tongue.

O face she made, her reaction to my mixing pudding.

Pudding and icecream. She didn't even try either one. We tried bribing her to eat.


Another funny tongue thing. (I later find a large white sore on it!)

So tired and sleepy today.

The sky across the road this evening/night.

It was HER idea to cut her toe nails. She loves it. She just woke up not long ago, lol.

Then we painted her fingers and toes. She also enjoyed that. My girly girl.

*edit* turns out Tehya was not sick as in having a cold or flu sick, she was sick because of mouth sores! See this blog for details.
