PL 2013 - Week 7

Tuesday: The Girly's second front tooth is coming in so we are super thankful for all of the teethers we have stashed in the freezer. It gives us a few minutes with no fussing.

 Wednesday: The Girl colored Dada's valentine. This was the first time she used crayons. She did pretty well not eating them but she wanted to throw them more than color.

 Thursday: Happy Valentine's Day!

Friday: I have been trying to get the Girl's baby book done (which really means started). Every time I get it out she wants to see what I am doing. So far I have the pages about before she was born done. 

 Saturday: We went to visit Nanny and Paw Paw. When we got there we found out we weren't the only visitors. The Peanut had a great time playing with her cousins. They need to get used to having littles around since they will both be big brothers soon.

 Sunday: I'm pretty sure it's more fun to throw the toys all over the floor than it is to actually play with them. The sitter calls this age "the stage of dump" as in dump everything out of every container possible.

Monday: We went to Miss Carol's to work on the Girly's birthday invitations with meant play time with Timmy and Gab!

PL 2013 - Week 6

Tuesday: Happy 10 months Girly!

Stats: 18-ish lbs (just a guess), size 6-9 and 9 month clothes, size 3 diaper. Eating about every 2-3 hours and sleeping almost (half hour less than) through the night. She still takes 2 naps a day.

She loves when we play on the floor with her like a human jungle gym. She has been pulling up but not taking any steps on her own. She has 3 teeth (the second top one is almost through) and is eating more big girl food (applesauce, biscuits, crackers, roasted potatoes). She loves to feed herself cheerios. She can open cabinets and go up stairs. 

Wednesday: Napping for an hour an a half all day = a fussy baby. She screamed when we put her in the high chair so we ended up eating dinner on the floor. Some times you just have to do whatever it takes.

Thursday: We went to Dwight's book signing at church. There were so many people we spent 2 hours and 40 min.  waiting in line. We took the girl and she did pretty well our arms were exhausted after holding her for that long.

 Friday: Someone likes cheese-its. Da da was eating them and she got him to share with her.

 Saturday: Happy Birthday Camden! We took the Girl to her first kid birthday party. It was baseball themed so we dug out her Indians onesie. It was size 3-6 months and still fit her!

Sunday: This shape sorter basket has become the Peanut's favorite toy. She loves to open and close the door on the top and she smiles when it sings. I have heard the songs so many times I have them memorized.

Monday: Time to start working on the invitations for the Girly's first birthday. We didn't want to spend a ton of money so we decided to make them ourselves. I borrowed this paper cutter from school to trim them down. It was so much faster than scissors!

PL 2013 - Week 5

 Tuesday: A warm afternoon = taking this boy for his first strut of the year. The Girly had fun riding in her stroller too.

 Wednesday: I've been loving this dry erase calendar I made. I don't know what I like more. Keeping track of what we have going on or being able to look back at the month and see all the stuff we did.

 Thursday: Someone is starting to feed themselves... but only on bath night because it's exceptionally messy! Her favorites are puffs, o's and gerber cookies.

 Friday: We haven't had a diaper blow-out like this in months. Changing it took both of us and she ended up with an impromptu bath in the kitchen sink.

 Saturday: We went to see Jacob's team play in their tournament. He had 8 points an they won the game. They play again next week. Hopefully we will spend next Saturday watching them in the championship game.

Sunday: Super Bowl Party at Miss Carol's! She had fun playing with the Girly. We had fun eating all the good food.

Monday: Someone learned how to go up the stairs. We now get to keep a gate at the top and the bottom.
