Kendall is 8 Months Old!

Kendall Paige, you are 8 months old! Time needs to slow waaaaayyyyy down!

 At a doctor appointment a little over a week ago, you weighed 17 lbs 1 oz. 

You love to eat! (Wonder which parent you get that trait from?) So far you have tried store bought: oatmeal, rice cereal, unsweetened applesauce, blueberry applesauce, squash, garden vegetables, and yogurt melts. You have also had homemade: sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, lima beans, avocado, pears, cauliflower, broccoli, corn, bananas, and regular potatoes. It’s getting harder and harder to get you to nurse. Hopefully, we can make it to at least 9 months. We are supplementing with formula.

 You have 2 adorable teeth, both on the bottom.

 I think we can say that you are officially arming crawling. It’s the cutest thing! You are also doing a lot better on sitting up. 

You are still taking 3 naps a day, but your third nap is getting later and shorter. Your bedtime and getting up time are still the same (7:30 PM & 7:30 AM). When you wake up (in the mornings and from naps) you push down the bumper on your crib and stare at the door. You know someone will come and get you.

 You are in the same sizes as last month. Size 3 diapers, 12 month sleepers, and 12 & 18 Month dresses. 

You have started making more sounds. Lots of “bbbbbbbb”s. 

We talk about how rotten you all the time, because you are. Momma calls you a one man demolition team. 

We didn’t fully realize how much joy you would bring to our household. We love you!

Chloe is 4!

I love taking pictures and figuring out a little more about my camera everyday!  A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to take pictures of my best friend's little girl.  We have been best friends for 18 years and I hope our daughters are close friends.

The last time I took the Garrett's pictures was after I first got my camera.  I was shooting in all auto.  Chloe was about 1 1/2.  I took a few quick shots to set out at her baby shower.  

Now she is all grown up!  Here's a few of my favorites from our recent session:

Cracked me up to see her still putting her fingers in her mouth now while she was warming up to having her pictures taken. 

Too cute, and too much fun.  Happy Birthday Chloe!

Swingin' in the Breeze

While we were gone camping, Pawpaw Jones came up and built Kendall a swing. (These pictures were taken in between church services on a Sunday and after her nap, thus the sleeper.) 

We are loving taking her out every afternoon. And she is loving it too.  Thanks Pawpaw!

Life Lately

I've been a little MIA on here recently, so I thought I'd do a little blog post to catch up on this and that at the Jones' house.

Oh  my word!   Life as we knew it is over!  She is getting a little more mobile everyday.  I hate to call her main mode of transportation crawling.  We have hard wood floors.  So she mostly uses her hands to scoot her body and occasionally throws in a little foot work.  Super cute.  If she spots a computer cord in the floor, then she can really move!  (Maybe she'll have her dad's knak for electrical work).

                                  Loves her two fingers

She had her first fever.  And as first time parents, we ran to the Dr. office Friday.  Actually in our defense, we called and asked and they told us to bring her in.   Her white blood cells were elevated.  The doctor thinks she has a sinus infection and started her on an antibiotic. 

I've mentioned on her a couple of times about my back problems.  Seems like I'm finally getting over it.  It has been horrible.  For a week, I couldn't move without wanting to cry.  I've lived at the Chiropractor's office for the last four weeks, but it's paying off! Unfortunately, he can't "fix" me, but he's made it soooo much better.  Thankful my mom's been able to watch Kendall during my appointments.

Other than that I'm adjusting to being a stay at home mom, which I love my new position!  With my Back issue and a broken dryer, I've gotten behind on house work.  Seems like everywhere I look there is a pile.  Hopefully over the next two weeks I can get things back in order.  Pretty boring stuff to be blogging about :)

Poor guy, he's played a lot of nursing with his two sick gals!  I'm thankful he's so great with Kendall.  I wouldn't have made it without extra help.  Other than that he stays busy with all his projects.  

Reading back over this, I feel boring.  But I love my "boring" lil life.  I feel so blessed!

Quick Pics

I'm a little but behind on blogging. Hopefully I can get caught up this week. Here's my cell phone pics from the last 2 weeks.

My girl yesterday in between church services.  We love a good smocked dress :)

This is her new car from her Mimi.  Which I fussed about her getting but she does love it!

Being sweet and cuddly!

Last Sunday

I'll let her watch about 15 minutes of Sesame Street on my laptop in the afternoons.  She is getting to where she likes it.  

Happy in her swing
