Adventures in Measuring

PJ is having a ball with his grandpa in Ohio. Grandpa is a jack-of-all-trades and PJ is learning lots of new skills, like measuring.

For the record, this door is VERY big. 

Grandpa's feet are not the right size.

My feet are not the same size and that is a "problem!" And his papa's butt is "big."

And PJ himself is "just the right size." Of course.

Jelly Bean: 10 Months

Our little girl is now 10 months old! She is standing on her own, took her first steps, has six teeth, and has finally met her American family. 

She's been having a grand time. There have been far too many new experiences to capture here, so here are some of the highlights so far.

Of course, food remains a highlight with this one. 

And keeping with her "I can do everything big brother can do!" trend, she started riding a bike. Of course with her favorite new person: grandpa! 

And chilling with granny and her big brother outside in the sun. 

She also got her to meet my aunt, my uncle, and my nana. I think they were all impressed with each other. 

Double digits people!

Living the Super Model Life

A few months ago I finally got myself and two kids to the hairdresser. The Mr. joined us later but of course the Jelly Bean required milk while I was in the chair. 

I channeled by inner Giselle and this happened: 

Cause we are in Germany this was NO Big Deal and for just a second there I felt glamorous.

Jelly Bean Has Six Teeth

She made us wait for them but here they are: six teeth all within a few weeks. Two on the bottom and four on the top!

Teeth are certainly making her life more enjoyable. Biting off hunks of her favorite food - meat - is significantly easier. 

Oh, and she's walking.

Sick Little Lady

Our little lady has spent the past five days feeling pretty icky. It started with a fever and some more complicated teething. 

Then she broke out in a nasty rash and got some nasty belly problems. I saw this face a lot. 

But then it slowly started to get better. Slowly. 

Thankfully today has been fever free and little lady is even eating regular foods. 

Looking adorable!

Jelly Bean 9 Months

Today our little one is nine months old! This month has been one adventure after another. 

We can finally see a tooth poking through. When it finally pokes all the way through it will be her first. She still needs two fingers to balance herself while walking and she's become obsessed with the activity. Mommy and daddy's backs are getting stronger. ;) 

She celebrated her 9 month birthday by enjoying her first ice cream cone, with remnants of her big brother's chocolate ice cream still on it. 

And with her first ever swing, pushed by her older brother (sometimes gently, sometimes not quite so gently). 

Some days I look at her and am still in wonder at how healthy, how whole she is. And how lucky we are.

Jelly Bean: 8 Months

Our little girl is now eight months old! 

Little lady already wants to walk ad somehow manages to eat a lot f meat and chunky vegetables with exactly no teeth. Not sure how it works but she's pretty happy. She's going through a tough sleep pattern, so maybe a tooth is on the horizon?

Diaper changes have become an almost Olympic disciple in flipping these days. She's flipping physically and on occasion I'm flipping out. 

As our jelly bean gets older, watching these two kiddos interact is getting even better. We were apart for one overnight and you could have thought they had been apart for weeks; they were so happy to see each other. They already play well together and when they don't, their arguments are still pretty cute (most of the time).
