I am so happy with how they all came out. They are all mounted on boards too. She presented them to me in a beautiful black box with a silver ribbon. she really takes pride in her work. I cant wait to hang them and show them off.
We went to KB and purchased some great new toys for Jennifer. Two telephones - since she is obsessed with mine. and some busy box type ones. Was also able to find some toys at Sams Club. She loves to discover new things. she is crawling all around and standing up (holding on) on everything. She is changing by leaps and bounds. She understands lots of words. Ron taught her Monkey (by hanging on on my bed) and now when we ask her wheres the money, she looks for it. Also fish, cat, cookie, etc. I have heard her say daddy but until she looks at her dad and says it the same time, then I will make it official for the baby book.
well today I made plans for my 10th grade son to get tutoring in math. I wish I had the patience and time to go over all the new things he is learning. He is doing Geometry. I called back the tutor we had last year. He had failed the second and third quarter and then pulled and "A" with her help. Hope we can get this to happen again.
Jennifer is such a happy and energetic baby. BUT its not easy for me to catch a break since she sleeps only 8 hour a night. (waking up after 5-6 hours now) and then she only takes 1-2 1/2 hour naps a day. I imagine she will be quite and active toddler. So I am getting back to the gym to gain some energy for her.
I went today to pick out photos of Jennifer. It was so hard. I loved all of them. I picked at least four differnt poses. Cara was really patient with me. We were there over two hours making decisions. I wound up ordering an 11x14 for my den and a 20x24 for my den. It was so hard to chose. I am probably going to have her make up a album of the photos from the last two sessions with the next one we do in February. I will post images when she sends them to me. Cant wait to share.
In the past two weeks or so she has really changed. Crawling great. using her walker. She understand so much now. Daddys home, cookie (anything sweet I want her to taste) and fish, cat, up, etc. She gets so excited when Ron pulls up the driveway. She is like a little big kid now at 8 months. Its allot of fun. She is over 20 LBS now too. Still nursing and still waking up at night. She is in our bed. I love the time to cuddle and she is often curled up against me. I love the closeness. Sometimes we put her to bed in her crib and when she wakes about 3-4 hours later Ron gets her and we keep her in bed with us.
We celebrated with My Dad and he took us to dinner at Pastaria in Medford. This weekend was the first time we left Jennifer with anyone other than either of us. She was with her big sister. They had some great bonding time. Jennifer even fell asleep on Christina. She was in love....
I went last week to Cara HromadaI cant wait to see the photos. She spent over an hour with us. Jennifer in just a diaper sitting up, one in a pretty wicker chair with a pink and white dress and another in a cream color dress. I need to take photos more often. Jennifer is getting so big now. About 21 LBS and crawling all over.
