Will's goatee

Jenna was so tired when we took this video on Sunday and then you see her checking out Will facial hair!

Next thing you know...sleep!


Last night Jenna had plain Cheerios for her first time. She loved them! She very quickly learned how to use this cup too, although I didn't quite catch it on video. 

Pool time!

Jenna and I headed out to Walmart and bought her a $10 pool! We also got a bubble machine. 

Here are some pictures!

Charlestowne Landing

This weekend we had another woodsy adventure! This time we went to the state park. Here are a few pictures. 
There is a skunk someone up there

There were bison but you can't see them. 

Jenna watching the turkeys. The Toms were gobbling. 

A bear

Completely overcast day with our first tropical storm of the season just off the coast. Thankfully no rain. It was a good day.

Standing up

Jenna is pulling up onto everything. I mean everything! 

Here, in this first link, she is testing out Will's handiwork baby gate at the top of our stairs! This was my first time seeing her stand up. Pat and Will had seen it multiple times during the week.

Our first beach trip!

We packed up the whole house and headed for Kiawah County Park. I couldn't figure out how to do this around Jenna's nap time so we just went. Since the high today was 90 we went early, however too early! 

The park didn't open until 10 and it was only 9:25. Whoops. So we hung out, we were the 4th car in line to get in. Very quickly after that there was a huge line behind us. 

We finally made it into the park.
Jenna loved the beach so much. We didn't stay long at all. We've gotta figure out the umbrella and such for an extended stay. This beach had tide pools so Jenna played there for a while. Jenna even met a friend that had the same crawl. Josephine was 11 months. We hung out until the little girl started crying, and Jenna did too -joined right in. 

With this hat we couldn't see what she was doing or her face for most of the trip! I did see her at one point laying on her belly so I know she was eating sand straight off the beach not using her hands. 

We changed. Nursed and fell asleep. Slept the whole way home then plus an hour or so while Will rocked her. It was a good day!

So good, I didn't want it to end. So after her next nap she and I went to the pool!

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.
