Each day

Each day I come home from work Jenna can do something new. (I try not to be sad from missing so much) I am in amazement at how quickly she has grown up.

Jenna is now 15 months old! 

Here are some new things for her
Walking backwards
Playing chase (she must chase you, otherwise it ends poorly with her nose into a wall, cause she's looking at you)
Pushing buttons
Brushing her hair
Brushing her teeth 
Flipping light switches 
Playing peekaboo 
Can point to hers and your ears, eyes, nose, belly button 
Can say something that resembles mailman, water, night night, more, bye, and good
Enjoys recycling 
Tells you if you forgot to close the gate of lock a cabinet 
Knows what a cow, cat, and sheep say
Blows kisses on command 
Interested in others belly buttons
Obsessed with hers 
Loves to slide at the park
Still eating everything so well: edamame, turkey, black eyed peas, and cuties are her big eats currently

I can't wait to be home for Thanksgiving, and then before I know it Christmas break!

This is new too: 

When did she get so tall!?

Pumpkin patch take 1

We only got to spend a few minutes at the pumpkin patch today. It began to rain, but before we left we got a few cute pictures.
We will return on another weekend for sure. They have hayrides, a petting zoo/farm animals, and you can feed the ducks.

Cruisin' Down WTP

She was silent, taking it all in...preparing her wish list I'm sure. I think we are the only kid house on the street that doesn't have one of these! 


Decisions decisions! Which pink shoe to buy?

Granddaddy and Carmel bought Jenna her first pair of Stride Rite sneakers. 

Here are a few pics from that day!

Beach Day

Seabrook island with Lane!
One last trip to the beach before summer ended. We had a great time. This beach was super private and nice. 

It's a whole new experience going to the beach with a toddler. I sure did get my exercise. Next time remind me to take backup! 

12 months

Jenna's birthday was August 21st! She enjoyed funfetti pancakes for breakfast and Lovie surprised her with balloons. One year, I can't believe it.

I just set my alarm clock. That makes me super sad. The summer was so much fun, I can't wait for it to be summer again. I probably should look at small things like be excited for Labor Day holiday not June.

Another friend's husband realized that she's almost been home for half of her August baby's life. So as I think about that, that's pretty cool maternity leave then summer about six months total. I am so glad to be a teacher. 

Here are some of the awesome things we did this summer. I kept a running list. This is the first summer ever I didn't get bored and I truly enjoyed it.

Ladybugs Ladybugs!

Jenna and I went to Magnolia plantation today to do a ladybug release. We first started with the petting zoo. Then we got her ladybugs and went into the woods to release them. Oh and we had our first nursing in the woods too :)

Thankfully Jenna is slower than the ladybugs or they would've ended up in her mouth! Be sure to check out the videos because they're funnier than the still shots.

Most kids were in ladybug costumes, next year will be prepared!
