Jane smiles!

 This past week Jane started smiling! I have yet to get a picture of her full smile, but the bottom picture is close. And then on top, it is just a picture in a precious dress she got from my Aunt Valerie. I love how dainty it is! Totally suits Miss Jane! I am so happy she has started acting more like a normal baby. Hopefully this is a sign that she is on the right track.

Llama Llama Red Pajama Birthday

 For Abby's birthday party she wanted a Llama Llama Red Pajama themed birthday. So Amazon was awesome-- I found a Llama stuffed animal which she refused to put down the entire night! And the girls got matching pajamas, red of course. We decided to serve breakfast food to truly embrace the pajama theme!

 For an activity we made cereal bracelets. They were a huge hit-- I was honestly surprised at how long the kids sat making them!

 The rest of the party the kids just made a giant mess with dress up clothes! It was a fun time!
Me and my girls in our red pajamas. I am one lucky mom!

First tooth gone!

Kate came to me in the kitchen today crying "Mom, I don't want to look funny and sound funny when all my teeth fall out!" I was confused till she showed me her tooth was almost gone! I didn't even know it was loose! After I told her about the tooth fairy she cheered up and pulled it the rest of the way out herself. The other one next to it is loose too--so I'm sure it won't be there much longer!

Jane's Nursery

 So, I am proud to report that I got Jane's nursery decorated before she turned 2 months old! It's pathetic how long it took me, but I was a bit preoccupied keeping her alive, so I forgive myself! I have to say, I am in love with her room! And her quilt---perfection!

And then just because--this is my favorite church dress on her so far. She looks like such a little lady! Sadly it is still a Newborn size, but she has at least gained a few ounces on her own now. Hopefully we are on the right track now, and the next specialist will find some answers to help her grow. This failure to thrive nonsense if no fun!

Jane's Blessing Day

 For Jane's blessing on June 26th, Jon's Texas sisters Melissa and Michelle were able to bring their families and join us! It was great to have some of the Walters there too! As always, the blessing was sweet, and I was proud that she didn't cry during the blessing.

 I couldn't resist this picture-- Jon's face is priceless!

Family Time!

 My parents, Grandma, and brother were able to come down for a weekend for Jane's baby blessing. It was amazing to have everyone here, as always. We honestly did't get out and do too much, we just hung around and enjoyed each other.
