Capri Update: 10 Months*

I don't have an accurate weight on Capri this month! I'm guessing she is about 21 pounds. I can only hold her for a little while! The Ergo has been a great help! Here's a picture of her in it; Bad angle of a self shot! 

I just learned how to wear her on my back. Although, I'm not comfortable enough wearing it in public (because it's tricky to get her in it by myself), we do go all around the house and yard with it! I'll get a back carry shot for you in the next update!

The best!!
We were on a healthy streak until the 17th! Her 10 month birthday! We went to church, she was fine, woke up from her nap, fever! Bam. Just like that! 101.2! It was so odd! We started thinking something was off because she woke up and SNUGGLED with Daddy! This never happens! 

Daddy came home from working 3 days and just wanted a hug!
LuLu was NOT having it!
The night was a little rough of breaking fevers and a baby girl that was miserable. But within 48 hours she was better! Weird! 


I think Capri is changing her schedule! I thought she would be going to 2 naps a day soon. She has stuck with 3 and spaced them out a little. She wakes at 6am to nurse, back to sleep until 7:30am, nap from 9:30-10:30. Lunch at 12pm, then nap from 1pm-2:30pm, nap from 6pm-6:30pm, bed at 8pm.

"My Brown Eyed Girl"
Aren't they beautiful!!??

Most of the 9 month clothes have been put away and 12 month have made their home in her closet! This little girl is SO blessed! We have had a few friends give us clothes from their daughters! We have yet to buy her clothes! Well. . . confession: I have bought a few items I just couldn't resist at Target or Kohls!  The little girl clothes are SO CUTE!! B even made a comment about it being hard to resist buying cute clothes for her!


Daddy and the kiddos at Ferrells!
Thanks Cory for photo bombing!! 

We remain a very social family! Ha! Thank God our kids are extroverts! This month the schedule included: Having the LePlante family over for the weekend, Celebrating Auntie's birthday, going to Ferrell's Ice Cream Parlour with small group, and spending the day with Auntie while Daddy, Mommy, Lolli and Jeremy went skiing, and had a pool day at Kimo and Auntie Donna's! YES, it was in February! Love Southern California!

Snuggling with Grandma while we were skiing.

Brotherly/Sisterly Love
Playing in the backyard. He is filling her tub up with water.

These two continue to melt my heart with the bond they are creating! Capri absolutely loves Jeremy! She lights up when he comes in the room! She is always put in a better mood when she sees him! I am truly enjoying watching them grow together.

Holding her in for the picture. She fell forward on take 1!
Daddy will have to install some sort of seatbelt!
Pssst. . . This is their combined birthday gift!
Don't tell them!



We have added so much since last month! We cut up just about every fruit or veggie we eat and let her have at it. She loves it! I haven't given her noodles, rice, or meats, yet. We, sometimes give her baby food (Earth's Best Organic). This doesn't fall exactly inline with Baby led weaning but I bought some because it was "on sale" before we decided to go with baby-led weaning and feel like I need to use it up. Plus, there are days she just can't get enough. She is fussy, I know she is hungry, milk isn't cutting it, and she is frustrated with chunks. After a little mush, she is happy. She is still nursing every 3 hours. I think it's about 5 ounces.


There are so many things to report this month!  She makes the sound of a monkey, she uses the sign for please, all done, waving "Hi" and "Bye", and gives kisses. However, she has stopped doing all of them! Silly baby girl, She'll pick them back up when she is ready! She IS standing on her own! Whoop, whoop!
So annoyed by the diaper! But at least they are cute diapers from Honest!
Daddy thinks she's super cute in just a t-shirt and diaper!

Well, until next month!

Skiing Adventure!*

My mom has taken Jeremy skiing a few times now. The last time we wondered why we had never gone to see him! She says he is a natural! But wouldn't any Grandma? So, we had to go see for ourselves! Sierra came with us, also!

It was great family day! Capri stayed with Auntie for the day, so that both B and I could be on the hill with Sierra and Jeremy! Thanks Mom for the lessons and fun day!
It's all in the right size boot!

A day in the snow would not be complete without a snowball fight!

On the chairlift! Don't tell anybody but I didn't do too well getting off!
They had to stop the lift! Embarrassing!
So thankful my mom kept her arm securely around J the entire ride!

My Love!

Old McDonald Had a Farm. . . *

E - I - E - I - O

Grandma Tina. She was like 80 year old. . . In cow years!

Did ya guess we went on a field trip to a farm?? Amy's Farm in Ontatio!
We had so much fun! A friend was taking her 4 kids and asked if we wanted to join! The pictures speak for themselves! 

It was a cold morning!
Spotted horse he got to brush

They got to pick rainbow lettuce to feed the animals.
Troy wanted to taste it!

Seriously! Look at that tongue!
All kinds of fun animals to feed and pet.
His hand could have been lost in the thickness of the sheep's wool!

BEST part! Jeremy got to milk a cow! How stinkin cool!
Haha! Pun intended!

Capri Update: 9 months*

Homegirl is ALWAYS smiling! 

1st bath in the sink! She usually takes a bath with J.
Look at those chunky arms!! Love them!

We are steadily gaining about a pound a month. She weighs in at 20.2 pounds!

Now that I am on the move (spoiler alert), I find fun places to crawl into!

Capri has been healthy!! No recent trips to the doctor! And Eczema has statyed away! Praise Jesus! 

So precious!

She is steady on her sleep patterns too! We play the evening nap by ear.
She goes to bed around 8pm, wakes at 6am to nurse, back to sleep until about 8:30am. She naps for about 1/2 hour at 1030. Then down for a 2.5 hour nap at 1:00pm when Jeremy naps (how did I get so blessed?)! Another little 1/2 hour nap around 6pm. Bed at 8pm.

I LOVE dressing a little girl! So fun!

I have put away all the 6-9month clothes! There are a few 9 months that are kinda snug and need to be worn one last time! 

This was when we saw her after being gone over night!

Capri had her first overnight stay away from me and her first weekend away this month! The overnight was with my mom while we were in Big Bear with friends. She was only about 15 minutes away from me! My mom loved every minute of it! 
The weekend was with Jackie. We went to Northern Cali for a training to facilitate a marriage class. I missed her like crazy (J too.) But she was taken care of and that eased my mind. Plus, it was a much little getaway for B and I! 

Brotherly/Sisterly Love

These two just make my heart smile every day! Capri absolutely LOVES Jeremy! Anytime he walks in the room she lights up. She giggles like crazy when he is being silly.  She loves wrestling with him. We have a walker for her, Jeremy loves racing her up and down the hallway! She gets a deep belly laugh! 
The joy on her face is priceless!

She was crying, Jeremy said, "Mama she wants to snuggle with me!"


 Little Miss is eating chunks of fruit. So far. . . banana, avocado, and apple. She is also drinking water from her sippy cup. I think she chews on it more then drinks! 

Big Girl Bed!

  • Baby girl in ON THE MOVE! Here is the video
  • We moved her into her own room in a crib. Before she was in our room in the pac and play. It's still up and occasionally I put her to bed in there. Especially when Bobby is working long shifts! I like the company!
  • We also, have 2 teeth! They popped in with in 12 hours of each other! The starter tooth was with Auntie! 
  • She signs "All Done"
  • She moves her way around the house and backyard in her walker!
She will hold on if we put her to standing postition.
She isn't pulling up just yet. 

2 Teeth!
What do I do with this thing! It didn't take long to figure it out!
