Helping Daddy

We got Jude this Walker last night to help him learn how to walk. He loved "helping" daddy put it together. He had no trouble walking around the livingroom with it.

My brother, Daniel, and his family came to visit us this weekend. Jude had a lot of fun playing with his cousins. Owen enjoyed playing with Ruby.

Visitors From the North

John's sister and brother-in-law came down to visit us this weekend. They are looking to move down to this area and wanted to come check it out. This is their little girl, Chloe. She is two months younger than Jude. Isn't she cute? She has a personality a lot like Jude. She is very smiley, loud and outgoing. They got along pretty well, but Jude was a little rough sometimes.

St. Patrick's Party

Our small group from church had a St. Patrick's Day party. It was a lot of fun. We made all Irish food, had trivia and had a 'wearing the most green' contest. We heard the story of St. Patrick and read some Irish prayers. It was a fun night.

A Day in The Sun

Ruby loves Jude, probably more than Jude loves Ruby. Jude does like her, but he sometimes gets bothered by all the kisses:)

The Jitterbug Commercial

This is the commercial that Jude loves so much. I don't know if it's the music or the dancers that peak his interest, but as I'm posting this, he's watching it and smiling:)

Fun Facts About Jude

- He has 4 teeth. Two on the top and 2 on the bottom. The one's on the top are just now coming in.

- His favorite toy is his new Tonka truck and a blue ball. He plays fetch with himself. He picks the ball up, throws it and then goes after it.

- He stops whatever he's doing and turns his attention to the TV whenever the Jitterbug commercial comes on. I don't know why he loves that commercial so much, but he does. He stares at the TV from the beginning to the end.

- He pretty much loves all food. Sweet potatoes, applesauce, avocado and yogurt are among his favorites.

- He can say "mama" and "dada"

- He can stand on his own, but he doesn't know it yet, so when he's standing and he realizes he's not holding on to anything, he panics and quickly plops down.

- His favorite game is to have mommy or daddy chase him. He laughs so hard sometimes he has trouble crawling away.

- He loves the doggies and will go over to them with his mouth open so they will lick his face. This doesn't make mommy very happy.

- He loves to talk and babble. Usually it's very high-pitched.

- He is very social and flirts with everyone when we're out. Trips to the grocery store are always fun for him, because he gets so much attention from everyone walking by. Who wouldn't stop for that smile:)

New Truck From Daddy

John got Jude this big Tonka truck that was on clearance at Wal Mart. Jude loved it. The thing is as big as he is.

New Window

"Come on Ruby, I'll help you in."

Ignore the mess of toys on the floor:)

New Kitchen Tile

Our friends, Dan and Lyndee, came this past weekend and helped put in my new kitchen floor. Dan also put in a new window in our living room and I'll post pictures of that later. I love my new floor, it changes the feel of the room so much. There used to be too much white with the white cabinets and white floor, but now it's warm and inviting.
