Happy 9 Months!

Wells is 9 months today! Where does the time go??? They are definitely keeping me on my toes these days! With Wells crawling around everywhere, and my little {Dennis the menace} I am crazy! 

She has had a cold and is still a happy little girl! Unless she sees you coming at her to wipe her nose, and then she will flip out on you! 

One of her new favorite games is to pull her bow/headband off! We were in Walmart last week and we spent more time searching for her bow {that she pulled off and threw down} then we did shopping! I was determined to win the battle! I wonder where they get their stubbornness from! Ha!

I am having so much fun dressing a little girl

and painting toenails {I think it is time to repaint those toenails!}

Wells is still a great sleeper! She sleeps from 8 to about 8 and naps twice a day {morning/evening}. She takes a bottle 3 times a day {morning/evening/night}. I can't WAIT to stop pumping! I will try to get her on whole milk at 11/12 months. She is drinking out of a cup pretty good. She eats 3 meals and still doesn't like puffs or anything in her mouth. I tired the yogurt bites/puffs and she gags! She doesn't like the third stage food that has any chucks in it. She will eat it if it is smooth! I will just keep trying and she will eventually get it. She is SUCH a easy going sweet little girl! I take her Thursday for her 9 month checkup.

Finn is talking so much these days. We are trying to work on potty training but it's not going very well! He can do #1 pretty good but #2 not so much! I am just taking it slow because I think he will catch on when he is ready. He basically knows the concept so he will get it. He went to his first art class yesterday and had so much fun! He made the cutest little ant playground and today I found it totally torn apart. He is a MESS but he is the sweetest little fellow!

Miscellany Monday!

Miscellany Monday @
lowercase letters

We went on a little beach trip this past week! Jared was out of town with work, so we just packed up and headed to the beach! It wasn't a very good trip but I think Finn had fun so I guess that's all that matters! 

My Mom and Wells got colds while we were there, so Wells didn't sleep very good.{which means Mommy didn't sleep good}

Wells did love the sand!

Finn has said about a million times he wants to go back to the beach! I guess he is going to love the beach like me!!

Poor little Wells, you can tell she doesn't feel very good!

On a another note, we are starting to get on a better schedule around here! I posted the cleaning/supper schedule on our chalkboard and explained it to Jared! I know he is thrilled! He always asks me what needs to be done so now he can just go look at the list and check it off! I used to be able to knock out all the cleaning on one day, but now with the kids I just don't have time to do that. It has to be broke down in days. Plus, I have got to get myself on some sort of schedule. I feel like I walk around in circles most days.

“One of the lessons of 9-11 is that evil is real and so is courage.” -George W Bush

“At the moment American democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then hung up to perform their final act.” -George W Bush

Labor Day weekend!

We had wedding festivities all weekend!! Jared's sister got married on Saturday and we were all in the wedding! Finn didn't want to cooperate at the rehearsal but did pretty good during the wedding!I didn't hear him crying so I was happy with that. Here are a few pictures from before the wedding!

Kathryn and Finn. Finn has started rubbing his lip when he is nervous for some reason.

Jared and Finn


The family minus Wells. She wasn't in the wedding and my Mom brought her.

Finn with Caroline

You can tell that Finn wasn't very thrilled with being in the wedding. Jared had to bribe him during the wedding with fruit snacks in his pocket! The kids had so much fun dancing at the reception! I didn't take pictures because I was busy dancing with them!

This is not my new blog design! I have been downstairs on my computer today because we had the house exterminated! I started playing around with my blog and it became addicting! I just wish I could figure out how to center my header picture! Any suggestions??

We are going to be super busy this weekend with wedding stuff. Jared's sister is getting married tomorrow and Finn is in the wedding{along with me and Jared}. Should be interesting! 

Have a great weekend!
