She is sitting like a pro and scooting around like she is in the baby scooting olympics. it is so weird. like one day she is reaching and crying for her toys that are too far away from her and the next day she just scoots on over and gets it like it's no big deal. its amazing what one day can do for ya....OH! also. she is sleeping through the night. For like 2 weeks now. there have been a couple days in there where she has woken up once- but to me that doesn't even count. This is a big deal, folks. Like the other day I slept for nine hours straight. For the first time since I was a mom and- it was the weirdest thing- the hallelujah chorus actually started blasting when I woke up and realized what had just happened.
...ha. Anyways, this month has been a good one for her. She can also take a bottle now thanks to her very diligent and persistent father. That is another downright miracle.
So to celebrate 8 months! Because, duh, there is a cyber "celebration" every month, here are my 8 favorite pictures of jane this month.
kicking her legs because she loves me so dang much. (the feeling is mutual)
playing with flour. i go to great lengths to keep this child stimulated! ha
i love watching her sleep. it's my favorite.
On a completely unrelated note, the other day I tried an experimental dinner and I didn't like it. I knew jeff was trying to be nice by eating it so I said: "Honey. You don't need to eat another bite"
His response: "It actually isn't that bad. I kinda like it."
5 minutes and 10 tiny bites later....."But like, you probably shouldn't ever make it again."
yeah he didn't quite finish his meal, but he gave it a valiant effort. haha
Here are a couple more jeff quotes as of late.
"I'm gonna go wake up Jane!"- Jeff
"No let her sleep" - me
"But she is hungry!"
"No, she would wake up if she was hungry- TRUST ME"
"No kerri, I know how it is. You are SO tired but you just can't wake up. It happens to me all the time, so I'm going to go get her."hahaha laziness must run in the family. ;)
"THE SNOW NEEDS TO TAKE A HIKE! Why doesn't it snow in Wyoming or somewhere boring?!"
- i was deeply offended, having grown up there. hahaha
So I had done something that bugged jeff and he said:
"Kerri. I love you. But sometimes?....I....still love you. and....I love you and that's actually all I have to say"
This is him trying to muster up the courage to tell me something that I did that was annoying him but then chickening out (like a smart boy) at the last second.
Very smooth save there, honey.
