Hey Mom! Where are you? It's dark in here.

This is what Jenica's hair looks like in the morning if we give her a bath the night before and take out her braids or pony's. I'm starting to see a correlation between the times that her hair is like this, and the mornings she sleeps in a little longer. It is now quarter after eight and I haven't heard a peep out of her. On a normal morning we usually start hearing her around 7:30, and she's definitely awake by eight. Maybe since it's so dark in her little world with all that hair in her face, she doesn't know it's morning yet!

The Joy of Boxes!

Jenica's favorite toys these days: boxes, and mixing bowls from the kitchen cabinets!
Her favorite thing to do: Open and close doors

Fish Lips

I finally got a picture of this. Jenica's newest fun thing to do is make fish lips. Now... you can see for yourself :)

Play Time

There's nothing sweeter than waking up to a happy baby in the morning! Rob & I actually get up about an hour before Jenica in the morning and I look forward to hearing her cheerful noises coming from her room signaling it's time for her to start the day. Our morning routine usually starts with a diaper change, of course, since after 12 hours in bed it is usually approaching it's maximum capacity. Then we make her morning bottle and while she lays contently drinking it, that's my window of opportunity to do something fancy with her hair. I'm not sure what I'll do after she's done with bottles as that is about the only time I can get her to lay still long enough and be patient enough with me to let me practice my braiding skills. After the bottle, we usually have play time for a bit before heading to the kitchen for some "big people food". She was especially adorable this morning so I took some pictures to share. As I write this she is happily s…

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Please join me in wishing my daddy a very happy birthday! Love you Dad! Thanks for helping make me so cute! (Oh, and I wore camo today just for you:)

Day Care

Jenica is going to daycare for the first time this afternoon. I think I'm having a much harder time with it than she will. The lady that will be watching her one day a week also watches my friend Brandi's son, so Jenica will get to play with Judah while she's there. There are also a few other kids that come on Thursday afternoons so I'm sure she will have lots of fun. I know I can't have the best of both worlds (stay at home mom and career woman), it's just hard to have to leave my baby girl with someone who doesn't love her like I do. It's times like these when I wish I didn't live so far away from my family, so Jenica could just spend an afternoon with her Grammy or her cousin Kayla instead of having to go to a strangers house. Rob and I have weighed the pro's and con's and feel like a little time with other kids will actually be good for Jenica right now and will allow me to focus on work with out worrying about what Jenica could be getti…
