10 Months Old

I can't believe Jaina is 10 months old already!!
  • She now crawls on her knees (most of the time)
  • She can pull herself up
  • Has 5 teeth (as of today)
  • Loves to play with Xander & Mara's things
  • Likes baby food
  • Is learning to eat more solid things without gagging.
  • Says dada, mama, and hi
  • Loves bathtime
  • Squeals when she's happy
  • Makes growling noises
  • Likes to copy sounds, ie: my mom clearing her throat
  • She gets very excited, to the point of spazzing, when she sees Xan & Mara unexpectedly.
  • Learning to wave and clap.
I don't think I posted her 9 month stats so here they are (from Feb 25th):

Weight: 20 pounds 2 ounces  (75%)
Length: 28 inches  (75%)

We love her so much and are very grateful for her in our lives.  Pretty soon she'll be 1 and walking!!  It's amazing how fast time goes by.

We love you JET!!!!

The Month Of March

My cute girls giggling.
I can't remember what they were laughing at.

Grandma Joan brought over a bunch of balloons that had lost their float and Jaina had a blast with them.
It's so fun to see her explore new things :)

Mara had her Spring Program at her Preschool on the 11th. She did a great job!!  She is LOVING school!

My cutie pie sleep-eating. 
I love when babies are so tired that they fall asleep while drinking their bottle.

Jaina has also started to pull herself up.  She is getting SO active, I can't believe how big she is!

She also got her top teeth in around the 10th. 
She's much happier now :)

And speaking of teeth: Xander FINALLY lost another one on the 22nd.  He doesn't like to wiggle them so it takes FOREVER for them to fall out.  This is only the 3rd one that he's lost, and his top 2 are loose also. It'll probably be another few months before those ones come out.

I don't know if you can tell, but he has a missing tooth.  The one that's opposite of the lost one never came in as a baby, and x-rays show that there is no adult tooth either. It's not surprising because my dad had a top tooth that never grew in, so it's somewhat genetic. So he has a slight gap in his smile, but it's not too bad at this point.

Some photos from the iPod:
Proof that Jaina has hair.
I can only get it to stand up in the bathtub.

At FYE they have these HUGE Angry Bird.  I had to get a comparison pic to show the size of it.  Jaina thought it was great.

Wow. It's been over a month since the last post.  Boy am I a slacker!  Here's all of February in a quick re-cap.

Here's Pat at his desk in his office at the School.  He has a really nice setup and is really enjoying his job!

The kids HAD to get out their tents and thought it was hilarious to put Jaina inside one with her toys. Jaina liked it too!

The week before Valentines Day I found this fabric for a project I was making for my cousin, and decided that it would make adorable Valentines dresses for my girls.  So I worked as fast as I could and was able to finish them late Saturday night, so they could wear them to church on the 13th.  They turned out way cute, and I'm super happy with them.

Also on the 13th we celebrated mine & Pat's birthday's.
I got some shoes and he got some new shirts for work, and we got some fun stuff too.

Karri gave us some Star Wars Vinylmations of Darth Vader and Princess Leia!
I love them!!  Vinylmations have become a new love of mine and I'm always happy to get a new one.
If you want to see more Vinylmations, go here!

She also made us our own cakes.
Here's mine with a Vinylmation that looks like part of Cinderella's Castle in WDW.

And Pat's has guys from Tron: Legacy!!  So cool!

And to showcase the saddest face of Jaina's.  Whenever she hears a kissie noise, it freaks her out and she gets scared and looks like this.  It's so sad, but funny at the same time.  We keep doing it to see if she'll grow out of it, but so far she hasn't.
Thanks Brent!!!

The kids had Presidents Day off and decided it was a perfect time to get the GeoTrax out!!
They built this all by themselves too!

In the mornings this is Jaina's setup for her bottle!

And of course Mara has to get in on the pictures too :)

She's such a cute one. She has started doing an Army Crawl and is getting to be quite fast too.

And lastly: me & my best friend Stefanie.  We went out to dinner with our husbands one last time because she & Scott were moving to San Antino, TX on the 1st of March.  I know that we'll still text and talk, but I'm sure going to miss her.  Love ya!
