jane is a straight up monkey child. the sounds she makes. they are scarily similar to what you would hear at your local zoo. that crazy little girl. she screams like a monkey all the time, for every occasion.
if she is happy? she monkey screams
if she is super excited? she monkey screams.
if she is annoyed? she really monkey screams
if she is angry? she monkey screams?
if we are not giving her enough attention? she monkey screams
ie in church on sunday jeff brings her to me and says she is "so happy" but she just won't stop screaming. oh jane, always making sure that everyone is keenly aware of her presence.
little miss monkey is quite high maintenance. we sometimes want to call her a female tarzan.
which makes sense because, uh- Tarzan's girlfriend (aka female tarzan) is Jane.
I think we picked a very fitting name for our girl.
anyways I'm writing this post for 2 reasons
1. to tell you of my child's monkey ways.
2. to proudly proclaim that my daughter has been in this world for 7 (wonderful) months.
7 months sounds SO old but i promise you i just gave birth yesterday. but really, this past month has probably been the most fun month of being a parent. she is becoming a little person with quite the personality. she is curious about everything, and is learning so many new things. she can finally sit up and is learning to scoot. it's super cute. jane is just cute. i think my favorite thing about being her mom is when i go to get her out of her crib in the morning. she smiles so big and happy squeals and kicks her legs up and down (quite vigorously- this girl has got to have some serious abs!). then i pick her up and she continues to have a happy spasm. oh my gosh it is the best thing ever. she loves me.
...but sometimes she loves me too much. like when she can't sleep for 2 hours straight in the night without me coming in to hold her or feed her. yeah, thats fun- waking up every 2 hours. she was a better sleeper when she was 2 months old. what thee heck. i kind of like waking up with her once or twice in the night because i love hearing her gulp my milk and watching her sweet, sleepy face; but any more than that is when it becomes excessive and groan-worthy.
so here are some of my favorite jane pictures as of late. she kind of lives in her new pink winter suit thing because its the only thing warm enough for this freezing weather. but she looks so dang cute in it so its ok :)
jane's first new years eve :)
her new favorite toy
i love you janie girl :)here is another video that will make your day...
oh and on a completely unrelated note: for anyone who goes to BYU- has anybody else noticed that the basement of the JFSB smells like a severe and chronic case of BODY ODOR? gag me.
