3 Years and Counting!

3 years ago today, Robbie and I walked down the aisle and said our vows. 3 years ago we made a commitment to each other, for better or worse, in sickness and in health for as long as we both shall live. In a way, it seems like forever ago. But at the same time, it seems like just yesterday! 3 years ago, our lives were incomplete. Today, our lives are filled with more joy and happiness than either of us ever imagined!This is the little angel that makes our lives complete!

I don't know what the deal is, but somehow, my play list for my blog is NOT what I made it. I did not choose these songs. I am in the process of fixing it, I have no idea what songs are on this impostor play list so I apologize if any are offensive!

Really overdue update!!!

Well, its been a really long time since my last post. I know...and Im sorry. There has been a lot going on around here, and yes that is always my excuse!! But its true! This weekend alone, Robbie's dad Stanley and Step-mom Lisa and brother Mason stayed with us.Mawmaw came too, but she stayed with Uncle Donnie and Aunt Susan. They got here Friday and stayed that night, Saturday was Lisa's daughter Kristen's baby shower in Monroe. (Sarah, she had a fit over what you did everyone at the shower...I told so many people who you are and what you do that it wasn't funny!) Sunday, Robbie's neice and nephew came over to wait on Stanley and Lisa to get back from Monroe to take them back home to Jonesboro! I love it when family comes to visit, but sometimes all that visiting can wear you out! Abigail really enjoyed seeing all of them, especially when pawpaw kept giving her money to put in her bank!! She really racked up in the money department! We had a great weekend though!!! Now let me tell you about my little angel!!! She is growing in leaps and bounds. She learns something new everyday and constantly amazes me with the things that she says and does! I have the most polite toddler on the face of the earth, everything is "please" and "thank you" and "your welcome". She even says "Excuse me" after she burps(and for everyone else for that matter!) She is now falling to sleep completly on her own, and without a binky!!!! I thought that the binky was going to be a real problem, but she just decided she didnt need it anymore, and made my job of taking it away that much easier!! (I love this kid!) I look at her and watch her grow and blossom before my eyes, and it almost breaks my heart that she is growing so fast. I wish that I could catch the time in a bottle and save it for always. Robbie sometimes asks me "What on earth did we do to deserve her?" I tell him, "I honestly dont know" But maybe its not what we've done in the past. I think that God chose her for us because He knew the effect that she would have on our lives, and on every life that she touches. She is absolutly perfect for us. She brings more joy to our world than we have ever known. Everything that we do, in some way, centers around her. But, thats the way its supposed to be, isnt it!! Here are a few pictures of my little gift!!

Supper Time!Its not any good unless you get it EVERYWHERE!!

Overdue update on my Punk-A-Doodle!!

It has been a while since I have bragged on my beautiful little girls amazing talents!!! She has developed so much over the last few months! As of today she is 20 months old, only 4 more months to go until we hit the terrible 2's!! She is the easiest baby in the world to get to sleep, all we do now is say our prayers, say nite-nite, kiss and a hug and lay her down and off to dreamland she goes!!! She sleeps all night long, but has been doing that since she was 6 weeks old (I know...I'm blessed!!) She sleeps until about 9:00 sometimes 10:00 a.m. and goes to bed at 8:30 p.m. She is down to one nap a day, usually around 1:00 and lasts several hours, just enough time for mama to get her housework done!! She has a LARGE vocabulary!! She will repeat anything and I do mean ANYTHING you say!! We have to watch our words! But more than just being a parrot, she learns the word being said!! She has started pairing 2 and 3 words together, and that is becoming a common occurrence. She can hold an entire "phone" conversation. If she wants to talk to someone, she tells me, I give her my old cell phone (so that she cant call china!!) she opens it, presses some buttons and her conversation goes something like this " Hello, hey (insert name here... usually daddy, khaki, dullie, holly, Gracie or aunt e)(today it was Joe!) she jabbers a little bit, then says OK bye-bye!! and hangs up!! Her imagination has no limits!!! I'm not even going to try to list all of the words and phrases she knows, it would take too long!!! She probably knows somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 words or so and can pair any of them together at any given time! Something new today was "Mama, Quit!!" while I was tickling her toes!! She does still baby jabber a lot and rarely does she perform on command (what child does what you want them to do when you want them to do it?) but we have such a blast at home playing and learning. She repeated the entire alphabet to me in the bathtub the other night!! Speaking of baths...she loves them! When I get her out, she wants to get right back in!! She loves to brush her teeth, loves lotion and powder, loves to put mouse in her hair and if she sits still while mama puts her make-up on, she gets a little!!! She can be such a girly-girl and then turn around and want to play in the mud and ride 4-wheelers!! I just love my punk-a-doodle soo much!! But I'm her mama, and mama's tend to do that don't they? Oh, and if your wondering where Punk-A-Doodle came from, it is what I have called Abigail since the day she was born, just my own special little name for my beautiful talented smart independent and loving baby girl!!! There will never be another like her!!!

If you have ever been around the Irby's very much you know who the 3 Musketeers are, and if you don't...your about to find out!! Here you go MawMaw...this posts for you!!!

The best mop in the world!

For Christmas this year, my mother-n-law gave me the EuroProX Shark Steamer. Alright wives and moms, I have to say that this is the best steam mop in the world!!! If you want super clean floors, this is the mop for you!!! I just thought that I had clean floors before!! I swept and mopped with lysol and thought that I was getting my floors clean. I was wrong! The first time that I used this mop I was disgusted with what I saw on the pad, now I use it almost everyday!! It is super easy to use and is very lightweight. I am a much happier person when my house is clean (arent we all?) and now I KNOW that my floors really are spotless!!!!! I would recommend this mop to anyone!!! Thank you so much mimi for getting this for me, I have already used it countless times and love it!!! GET ONE...IT'S AWESOME!!!!!

Louisiana weather

The south has a very unpredictable weather pattern, take that back...the south doesn't HAVE a weather pattern, it just has unpredictable weather!!! Sort of like when it snowed in March!!! Today the weather didn't let us down, it was very warm outside. But it did give Abigail and myself a chance to get outside and play in the water puddles!!! Abigail got to use her new rain boots which she LOVED (thank you Mimi!!!)!! She had the best time playing in the water, and got very dirty to boot!!!!! I was having camera trouble and didn't get to shoot as much as i wanted to, but here are a few pics!! Enjoy!!!
