Toddler Tattoos

Jensen came to me, absolutely bursting to show me the beautiful designs she drew on the tops of her little baby feet with the markers she somehow managed to get her chubby little hands on. How could I be mad at her happy little enthusiasm? Besides, the markers were washable, so I was able to clean up her body art without much fuss.

Reagan and Mama

Reagan is almost 8 months old. She has two teeth on the bottom. She rolls around on the floor and gets everywhere she wants to go most times. She picks everything up off the floor and wants to put everything in her mouth like a little baby shark testing everything out. She likes to shriek sometimes. She giggles anytime I use baby wipes on her cute baby bum. I can barely keep her on the changing pad when I change her diaper, she twists and rolls like a maniac. She can sit up by herself, but still topples over after a bit. She has only slept through the night 4 times, and they weren't 4 times in a row. She takes two maps every day. She loves being snuggled up in a blanket, with her arms free, and rocked to sleep. She is quick to smile, and she absolutely loves her daddy.

Haven's Winter Dance Recital

It was Haven's Winter Dance Recital tonight, and she had so much fun, and of course, did a wonderful job. She looked beautiful in her dance costume, and looked so grown-up with her hair pulled back and make-up on for her performance. Her group was fourth on the program, but when they were performing their routine.e, somehow the music slipped to the end 30 seconds early and it kind of threw everyone off. So they fixed the problem and re-called her group to come back onstage close to the end of the show where they performed their routine again, this time without a hitch. Mathes, Gracen and Finn came with me to cheer her on and we had a great time. We're so excited for her Spring recital in May now!
