11 months and the SUN!

Sweet Jovie turned 11 months yesterday. This was a big month for her. She is now crawling, standing up at toys/furniture, and walking along furniture. We can also tell that she has learned a lot of words and routines. The last two nights, I asked her is she was ready for night night and she looked at her daddy and waved at him. It was so sweet. She has said these words: dada, mama, nana (maybe nurse or mama), hata (haven), yay, mo (more), baw (ball), bye bye, ya-yu (thank you). She loves to watch me sign more, eat, cereal, milk, and thank you, but she will only really sign more sometimes. We are working on it.

Yesterday, we had some friends/family come over to play in the afternoon. I think the mothers were more excited to see the sun than the kids!

Girls are so much fun

Our girls are having so much fun playing together.

I love little girl toys.

One little girl is crawling around on all fours, pulling up, walking along side of furniture, and loving this new world of exploration.

can't wait!

we are getting excited about our bonus room. it should be getting paint, trim, and doors in the next week and then carpet. we have plenty of room at the moment for playing and such, but i have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time in this new room. it is mainly for jeremy's drums, but i'm sure the girls are going to enjoy it too. they each have a little nook in the corners to play and we have little doors in each knee-wall for extra storage.

Oh Snowflake Tree, Oh Snowflake Tree

We are having our bonus room finished in, which means our long-term storage is unavailable right now. Well, our short-term, long-term storage isn't big enough for everything. When the room is done we are going to purge a lot of stuff before we move it back into to the long-term storage area.

We left the Christmas tree out and decorated it with snowflakes. I like to leave some snowflake decorations out throughout the winter just hoping and praying for some snow. Last year, we had a lot of snow. We are hoping to have enough to sled this year too. We are really enjoying our snowflake tree. I guess we will put it away whenever this room gets done.
