"NO, OUT, NO"
So Missoni is doing quite a bit of talking now, and not all of the the words I am very fond of. She has really mastered "no" even though I have to say, I don't know where she picked it up, because I never tell her "no". Yesterday at the YMCA, she was playing in this little house that has a door, one of the other kids was trying to get in and she was saying with a serous look on her face, "Out, no, out". I had to tell her that we share and not to be a bully. She is really enjoying the interaction at the Y, but she is also learning some bad habits there and at nursery. This past week she has learned how to push. I think it is because she has been the youngest one there and at nursery so she has had to learn to stick up for herself. Over all Missoni has a very sweet and kind disposition, and she usually spends most of her time saying "shoe, mommy, and tatay". I am not worried about it, I know she is just a normal 20 month old and she will learn how to share.
We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
Art and Graduation
I graduated from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale in March, 2006. I am now and Interior Designer and worked for a very established and wonderful Italian kitchen company for over a year until we moved to New York. Here is my thesis and some graduation pictures.
