Big outings with Lovie

Jenna and Lovie had many outings today. They went all over...when Mama sent me these pictures instead of saying, "Yay, how fun!" Or "I'm so glad you two are adventuring"...

I said, "Omg I hope you Clorox wiped that! ��

This is Jenna's first time in a cart!

8 months!

This sweet baby girl is such a joy. Jenna is so much fun to be around and she is always so happy. I think she's a great baby. She makes me want to have a dozen more.  

This month Jenna is so curious. She is trying to figure out how everything works. She prefers to play with anything that's not a toy. She enjoys pulling up. She makes it onto her knees or one knee and one foot. Only a few times has she gotten to her feet. 

I can't wait until summer. So very soon I will be able to hang out with her all day. I love just sitting around and watching her. 

Some mornings she sleeps in, but some times she wakes up. I love it when she wakes early enough so I can nurse and snuggle one more time before leaving for the day. She and I still sleep together.

7 months

Jenna is now 7 months old. The changes are happening each day. She tried a sweet potato fry this month and a lemon! I think she had other stuff, I just can't remember!

Jenna still bed shares with us. She sleeps between Will and me. I think she nurses about two times each night. If I don't get up, she will sleep until 7am but usually wakes up earlier once we get up for the day. 

On March 11th Jenna went from laying on her belly to up and sitting on her bottom. From then on she began really moving! Jenna scoots going backward only. She can even rock on all fours, so crawling will be here soon. 

Jenna continues to love the outdoors and her dogs, Jade and Buddy. 

This month Jenna also went swimming again! This time Will got in too!
Watch this video of her going under!

Jenna also went to her first Japanese Steak House...not as excited about it as I was hoping. 

Since she is moving around so much, Jenna now has a play pen for downstairs to contain her! Here are some funny pictures of her stretching out.

She crawls!!

First outdoor pool day!

The water was freezing but she wanted in...I let her get her feet wet! We walked down to the pool and met Lovie. We caught a ride home.

Changes all around

Jenna is changing so much every day. Just this week she's almost gotten violent if you see the picture below you'll see what I mean. She grabs hair, face, or  arms anything she can and she's kind a rough.

Jenna is also rocking back-and-forth on her hands and knees and she was able to push yourself up into a sitting position Thursday on the back porch for the first time. 

Jenna has also been waking up the last two days at 5:30am when I get out of bed and I don't have time to put her back down because I need to get ready so she just gets up with me. Well this morning she was fussy around 6:30am and all I could think was oh gosh it's going to be a rough day for Lovie and Jenna. Then Lovie says have you fed her? And I was like oh crap no, poor girl she was so hungry. I was only thinking about getting ready and eating my breakfast.

Half a year old!

Sweet baby Jenna is 6 months old!

Jenna had her first sickness this month. However, she was a trooper at her 6 mo appt., but remind me to not get shots again if she is sick. She had terrible congestion and a wet cough. The following day was really hard on her, so rough that Mom called me home from work! 

Jenna is changing so much. She is extremely alert and really wants to move. She enjoys sitting in the laundry basket and pulling up on the side. She can really move around on her belly. Jenna will now lift her arms when she wants to be picked up. 

She is getting better in the car if you time it perfectly.

Jenna has eaten, or I should say sucked on and played with apple slices, whole banana, avocado, and oatmeal cereal. The avocado was the hardest to handle. The oatmeal she made the worst faces. When she does swallow some, her whole body shivers. She also ate some paper from our mortgage bill. 

Jenna can now sit in a high chair when we go out to eat. Before we head in, i grab a few Clorox wipes. Then I obsessively clean the table and chair. 

It's still cold so Jenna wears footed pjs most days. Here are some pictures!

I don't want to lay down for this picture...ok I give, sit up! 

She can now ride on my back. �� Will got his own Tula for Valentine's Day. 

Jenna also got in a pool this month.
The pool at my work is 89 degrees and the room feels like a sauna!

Today was Jenna's first time in the pool. Our pool at work is like a wonderful sauna with 89 degree water. It's practically a huge bathtub, and jenna loves baths!

She even went under twice. There were no tears at all and I think she enjoyed it. I know I did!

As soon as she got out and changed she zonked out!

Not as exciting as the banana. But we will try again with bigger and more firm pieces. Nothing made it into her mouth. 

The dogs enjoyed it. But I need to rethink this, to keep everyone safe and not let them roam. Down stay? In crate? Something.

Jenna had her first food tonight. I think she liked it!
