Our 18-month-old!

Well, it’s true…our little Ada is 18 months old now! We love her an insane amount. She is a little drama mama already and right now it cracks us up…not sure if it’ll have the same affect when she’s a teenager, but we’l enjoy it for now.  Anything her brother is doing she so desperately wants to copy and I always hear Preston tattling,

” MOOOOOM! Ada is Coffeeing me!”

“Preston, It’s COPYING me. And she just loves you. She wants to be like you.”

“Well, I don’t like her coffeeing me.”

“Ok. I’m sorry. It’s Copying…”

I hope one day, when she learns to actually play instead of destroy, that they will get along better! We’ll see.

She is starting to say all kinds of things. Our favorite things lately are Goooooooooo Cougars!, Ipad, and all her animal sounds. I love this age when they are learning to talk.

We love having her in our home and I know there is a lot more to share about both our kiddos but I’ll leave it at that. We love them. Shaun takes his last final today so hopefully we will be spending some good times together as a family in the next few weeks. We better if Shaun wants a happy wife…haaaaha….but seriously.

And here are a few pictures that I took to document the big half birthday. We should all celebrate half birthdays, it think so anyway :)

November

8:54 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

I guess I am getting back into my once a month updates again…it has been yet another terribly busy month! Where did November go? This month it has finally turned to cold…well, relatively cold…the leaves have fallen and thanks to the last few windy days the tree in our front yard finally shed most of it’s leaves. With Shaun studying for finals I have been tempted (only tempted…) to take it upon myself to rake the yard since it has been getting pretty covered but I didn’t want all my efforts to be wasted just to do it again as the rest of the leaves keep falling. And I am sure the neighbors would wonder why the big pregnant lady is outside raking by herself…one of them did give me a funny look and started to ask where my deadbeat husband was :), until he realized Shaun was out there with me today…

So fall is here just in time for winter and CHRISTMAS time!! Thanksgiving came, and it was lovely…aside from our cousins not being able to make it for dinner :( but I couldn’t wait to get to Christmas decorating this year. So after Thanksgiving we went out and got ourselves a Christmas tree and decorated it listening to the Forgotten Carols and a little Bing Crosby…It was wonderful!! Now I just need to keep Ada from ripping off all the ornaments! She is one little terror…luckily she’s cute.

The baby is growing, and I along with him! I feel like I was this big when I was about to deliver Ada! People think I am a lot further along than I am…and I have to tell them I still have 3 more months…I’m just going to get bigger! Well, I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas season! God Bless!
