Jacey NOT smiling

Sitting with Fanty
Bird Lips in Tub

Just Looking

Who me?!?

I hate my bib!

Well were still in the development stage of the smiling, it is getting closer though. Right on the cusp of it! The girl's closest times are on her change table, naked and excited. Her legs and arms just get going and her mouth is soooo close. Alas, no smile. We have been trying tickling and making ridiculous noises and then just yelling...kidding we don't yell at her...much! =) She has started drooling up a storm and I fear her teething days are coming. She has started to wear bibs which she isn't fond of but puts up with. Also her tummy time is much better, she doesn't just lay her head down and complain anymore, alot more interactive with you! She is still on her tummy medicine which has made such an improvement for one more month, yucky, but helpful. So the Bird crew is still alive and functioning which is good. Christmas is coming, my favorite time and we are getting excited to see Jacey not open gifts or even really give a crap about it for the first time!!! Hehe Although I'm sure it will still be a gongshow!

Babies R Us Fiasco's

The sisters
The babies

My little sis and her man Kingston came down to visit a few days ago and we thought it would be fun to do a sister/baby day! Well it is fun, but crazy trying to get little people around, took 5 hours to go to like 3 places...Geez! We started in Babies R Us and it quickly turned into a feeding frenzy..literally. I had to change and nurse Jacey and then Leslie ended up changing and nursing Kingston...and Jenny sat on the sink and visited with us. hehe We were in the Parents Lounge for like an hour goofing around and performing professional mommy duties of course, but mostly goofing around. My mom would not have been proud!! Finally another lady knocked on the door to use it and we figured we should peace out before we got kicked out! Super fun though. We proceeded to go to to a chocolate store for the chocolate to dip this weekend, and a restaurant and then the mall. The babies totally swapped turns yelling in the car and getting fiesty. At the restaurant there was almost a brawl over the kids. Some crazy drunkard people behind us were a bit tipsy and some guy came in and left the door open so there was a draft. Well the guy behind us started yelling at him and the lady called him an unkind word and the poor guy had no idea what he had even done. Needless to say we finished our meal and peaced outta there too! SHEESH! Anyways it was a pretty fun day all in all! The sisters time was hilarious, as it always is!

Well we have definitely been busy in the last little bit. Bird fam was home for a few days before heading back up to the Mac to introduce Uncle Jon to Kingston. It is always nice to go home and visit with the families, but so nice to return and sleep in your own bed. The poor little lady is all over the place, but what a trooper. She is beginning to not hate her carseat, I think, only a few complaining sessions. Being up there and seeing Leslie with her little man is so much fun, and so exciting to think that Jenny and Graham will get to do it soon as well. Our family is truly blessed!

We received our pics from Caylee Secretan of Caylee Secretan Photography...little shout out there and we love them! They turned out so amazing, I love the job she did on them. What a neat experience to do and the memories that you get to keep. Another little countdown, Jon only has 5 weeks of school left...WAHOO! Then he will be almost done, a few night courses next semester, but done full time school! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!! I am soo pumped for him. I have been doing not tons, but thinking of things that I need to do. Like scrapbooking and journaling and also doing her thank you's and birth announcements...YIKES! Procrastination much. Ah well they are only little once and I love spending this time with her and all the cuddles, what a cuddly kid! But gotta get running, getting ready for another 2 day trip to the Mac. Jon's mom is having day surgery and I am the enforcer of bed rest and the chauffeur so a bit more trucking around and then a veg out till Christmas hopefully!!!!

Well the last few days have been busy for sure! My sister Leslie had her baby on the 28th. A little man, Kingston Mikel, 7 pounds 4 ounces and 20 inches long, he is adorable with a ton of hair!! My other sister Jenny, Jacey and I drove up Wednesday to meet him and then came home on Friday. That night we did the hadning out of candy which has sure changed. Some kids didn't dress up and others did not say Trick or Treat or anything, I had to actually ask kids to say it!! Unbelievable, times sure have changed, little monsters! Jacey was Tigger for Halloween and was too cute, however hated her costume more than life, the girl took a few pics and that was it. Saturday was busy as well, we threw Graham a surprise 29th birthday party, I would guess that there were probably 60 people here and they did a huge street hockey game outside and tons of food inside. It was super fun! Jon and I are alone for the next week, no Jen & Graham, no puppies, no Jacey...just kidding she's here still. Where would she go?! I cannot believe how big she is getting. The changes in her are phenominal and crazy, it happens so quick. We've been back and forth to see our parents and every time we go they tell us how different she is. I have been waiting impatiently for her to smile, she is sooo close. The closest thing I get is her dang bird lips! I talk away to her and she sticks em out, but no smile. "Put your darn bird lips away and smile for mommy already!" hehe oh well what can you do?! Besides that things aren't much different with us. Jon is still trucking away at school and I am still lounging around with a baby. The next few months should be interesting to watch and see the interactions with the lady so we'll keep ya posted.
