11 months!

One month away from a year old…no way!!

Here’s what has been going on…

  • I just love watching you play and “talk” to each other! I try to chime in, but you are enjoying each other so much right now! You talk back an forth and say “deedeedada” “nahnahdeedee” and I respond with my own “deedeedaadada” too! It is just too funny to listen too! I am sure we sound funny walking out in public “talking” to each other!
  • Finley has been testing out standing on her own lately by taking her hands off  and balancing! Just yesterday she stood up without holding on to anything a few times! She even took 2 tiny steps a couple of times!
  • Zane is also beginning to test out standing on his own!  They are going to be chasing after each other in no time!
  • Zane’s favorite toy object is the whisk!! Maybe we have a chef on our hands!!! Mommy would love some help in the kitchen that is for sure!
  • Finley’s favorite toy is whatever toy Zane has!!
  • You are now drinking formula from a sippy cup in the morning and at noon! You are still getting your bedtime bottle!
  • Finley still sucks her thumb and puts her other hand to her ear…it is the sweetest thing.  BTW, momma used to do the same thing!
  • Zane still sports the Hook ‘Em sign when he sucks his 2 fingers!
  • They got their first cold this month…boo! Not so fun. 2 snotty noses=yuck!
  • You are becoming very opinionated lately…regarding foods, activities, or dislike when an object that you are not supposed to have is taken away!!!
  • When out, Zane will smile and wave to everyone while Finley just stares them down!!
  • I am now able to make 2 stops  (ex. grocery AND hobby lobby) when we are out running errands…thank you!!!!
  • Just yesterday Zane walked all around the house with the push toy!

You are both growing so fast!! It is amazing to watch these changes as they occur…I am one lucky mommy!! I love you more and more every day!

Going for a walk…

around the house!! This LeapFrog push toy has been around for a while, but just today Zane wanted to do nothing else but walk with it around the house! He even started to sweat!! He hasn’t quite figured out how to maneuver it around the furniture like his friend Colin, but he is on the move for sure!

My little angel!!!

Finley has been so funny lately!! GG got these pool rings a while back and Finley is now seeking them out to play with them and….to wear them on her head!  It is like her little halo!  She won’t keep a bow in her hair but she’ll crawl around the house with the ring on her head!

Sweet little angel!!

Birthday party fun!

Last Saturday we celebrated 4 friends’ birthdays!  We had 2 parties to go to both at nap times (10 and 3)!! We decided to go ahead and make it a one nap day! It was successful and Finley and Zane took a 2.5 hour nap in between parties!

Happy Birthday to Carson and Foley! These 2 friends had a joint party at the Children’s museum! Finley and Zane had a blast and crawled all over the baby area and made friends with everyone they met!

Saturday night we had another adult night and went to the Zilker Park Theater’s production of Annie! I can’t wait to take Finley and Zane one day…they will just love it!


Me with my other child…thanks, Gary, for the great pic!


Before they left on Sunday we had to show them the popular trailer park eateries that are popping up all over town! We had some yummy trailer park fare and then said our goodbyes! We are hoping they will come back for a UT game so it won’t be too long before we see them again!

Hanging with Uncle Joe!


Aunt Angela showing Zane her Kindle!


Thanks for our super cute new outfits!
