The Face

Devin has this face. It's the "pretty pretty please with a cherry on top can I do this thing that I'm really excited about" face. It kills me. Could you say no to this?

Six Whole Months

I can't believe it...Six Months! My baby is growing up so fast. I have enjoyed Jaycie like I never allowed myself to enjoy Devin. Of course I love them the same, but it's different with your first. You worry, you stress, and above all, you follow the rules. You do everything the books and baby wise, and baby center tell you to do. But with Jaycie, I hold her, and love on her, and don't stress when circumstances are less than perfect. It has been so much fun.

Here's what Jaycie's up to at 6 months:

  • She weighed in at 17 pounds 1 ounce. That's the 71st percentile.
  • She measured 26.5 inches long which put her in the 77th percentile for height.
  • She can sit unsupported now and is already trying to rock forward on her knees.
  • She's got her two bottom teeth in and LOVES to chew on my fingers.
  • Still sleeping about 12 hours at night and taking two long naps.
  • She loves to laugh and will smile at anyone who looks at her.
  • She hates green vegetables but I make her eat them anyway.
  • She has started to shriek when it's time to eat and I'm just not fast enough. (Devin did that from the day he was born.)
  • She loves to touch faces and hold her feet (which is the cutest thing on the planet).
  • And best of all, she never cries. She is perpetually happy.

Man I love this girl.

Zoo Day

Today we got to go to the zoo. By we I mean me, Devin, and Jamin. Me and two kids, one heavy stroller, 45 minutes from home, during nap time! However, bravery paid off, it was great! We met Amanda and her kids, Amanda's sister and brother-in-law and their two kids, and their parents. That made for three double strollers at the zoo, during summer break, and on half price Wednesday. We made it through without any major traffic jams...though I did manage to run over a few toes and heels. It was a lot of fun even though the humidity made it feel like we were walking through water and I was constantly wiping the sweat drops off my chin. Really, I had fun. :) Here's some cute photos of the outing:

Mad Marie Photography

This morning I went over to a friend's house to have some photos taken of my kiddos. Most of you know her...the fabulous Madison Eppley. She did such a great job and has already put a few out on her facebook for me to see. But I stole them so I could put them on my blog!
