Five on Friday

I was looking back at my blog posts from last year and the year before that. I was such a better and more interesting blogger back then. I need to start working on that. I love to have memories and stories recorded so I can go back and look at them.

Anyways, linking up today with one of my favorite bloggers Megan for a random Five on Friday post! 

1.  This is our last "no big plans" weekend for the next month and a half. July and August are PACKED! We have 4th of July celebrations, swimming lessons for Jack, friends moving, vacations, birthdays- not to mention Jack's FIRST birthday, friends visiting, etc. Life. Gotta love the summers, but it does feel a bit overwhelming when I look at the calendar! Besides Jack's first birthday in July, we are going on our first big vacation without Jack. We are headed to New York for 5 nights. I dont know how I'm going to manage without him for that long. :o(

   2. The forecast for the next week here is insane! Over 100 everyday and maybe even reaching 113! Yikes! I really need to work on our backyard shade. We have no trees back there, just a lot of shrubs and flowers. Good thing my parents bought us a pop up tent.

3.  I finally got around to actually finishing a project recently! I made a chalkbaord out of an old window pane. I need to take a picture of the finished results but I was pretty happy with how it turned out!

4. I'm running out of ideas on food to feed Jack lately. He still only has two teeth so it's been a challenge to find things soft enough he can chew without feeding him the same things over and over again or making him something completely different than what we are eating.

5.  How funny is this photo?! I threw my friend Jacque and Judd a BabyQ last weekend. Since it was a couples shower I wanted the guys to get involved somehow so they had to do this game. They had to drink one ounce of water out of a baby bottle and the fastest one! It was a lot harder than it seemed! I tried to get the video of it to upload but it wouldnt for some reason.

11 Months

11 Months!

  • Clothing Size: 12 month but you can still fit into most 9 month stuff
  • Diaper Size: 3
  • You've moved from walking to RUNNING
  • You run from us now when you have something you're not supposed to or you need your diaper changed
  • Still working on those two top teeth. Only two bottom ones right now!
  • You dance to music- stomp your feet and turn in circles. SO adorable.
  • You clap at music, when we say yay, or when you want more food
  • You "shoot" at our deer head on the wall, pointing and saying "boom!" (I'm sure that freaks some of you non hunters out. ha!)
  • You carry around your blanket now
  • Love stuffed animals. You cuddle them and say "aah" in a cute little high voice
  • You've been in the sprinklers and little pool quite a bit lately
  • You must've went through a growth spurt recently because now you can reach things on my dresser and some of the shelves you haven't been able to before
  • You can EAT. You just stuff the food in!
  • Thanks to grandpa, dada, and aunties you are addicted to cookies and Pepsi. If you see a Pepsi bottle you drop your binky and open your mouth!
  • You're very talkative
  • You point at things you see or like
  • Still not much of a snuggler so when you do, mommy soaks it up!
