Baby Jo is 9 Months Old!

Can it be? Could it really be that 9 months ago, this sweet girl entered our lives?


Baby Jo 9 months

I feel so blessed to have a baby with such a sweet, mellow personality. She smiles even when she’s woken up from a nap! This girl has a cuddle and a smile for everyone, but she is undoubtedly a Daddy’s girl.

Baby Sister Can Get My Toys?!

Now that Baby Jo can scoot around with her little army crawl, C has been very concerned – distraught, even – about sharing his toys. It was hilarious during the first few days, because he would keep pushing his toys a few feet away from her and she’d just keep coming! He didn’t know what to do.
